Question about Xerox WorkCentre XE90FX Laser Printer

1 Answer

Fax sent are almost unreadable with a large black streek.

How do I clean the reader for the auto feed fax. I don't seem to have access to the problem--The Fax from Glass also adds a black streak, but not as bad.

That requires disassembing the machine to remove the scanner and then disassemble the scanner to clean the components.
It's quite a job.

Paper feed rollers and sheet feed pad dirty. Feed roller on top pad should be just below. Clean with alcohol. Papers have clay in them. Recycled is worst. It will glaze the pick up roller and pad.

Papers come out with black streeks on them from my sharp FO 4450

If everything is coming out with streaks, it's most likely your cleaning blade which is part of the drum cartridge. I've also seen this from 3rd party toner. Get Sharp toner for your Sharp fax if you don't have it already. If your black streaks are only on copies and sent faxes, this indicates that your scanner is dirty. It's located where you feed your paper in. Lift this part up and you'll see a strip of glass running front to back about 1/2 inch wide. Clean it and that will get rid of lines.

I bet your incoming pages are clean right? The Laser is not used for outgoing faxes.
Lift up your document feeder and clean the scanner glass that the documents are scanned across

Size of received/sent fax

you must have the reduction mode on in the fax section. This allows incoming faxes that are larger than the size paper you have available to be printed. You may have you paper set in a direction or size paper that is not the same as the fax being sent.

We can receive but won't take the paper to send a fax out

You have an ADF paper feed problem, try taking some rubbing alchoial and clean the ADF paper feed tires, This helps the paper to feed into the scanner unit so the fax can be sent. I have also seen part of the ADF feed unit broken.
Does the paper feed in but not transmitt out?

Received fax is unreadable or blurry
Please go through the checklist below to see if the suggested action(s) can resolve the issue.

* Make sure the copy function is working well.
* Print a Clean nozzle page from the Maintenance menu. If the printout has unexpected white or color horizontal streaks or missing portions, print the Clean nozzle page again. If you are still experiencing streaks or mission portions, you may need to replace your cartridge(s).
* The cartridges may need to be aligned.
* You may need to ask the sender to increase their fax quality.

Sent fax is unreadable or blurry.

1. If the receiving party indicates that the fax output is unreadable or blurry, you may want to try increasing the fax quality.
2. Check the scanner glass for excess amounts of smudges and/or fingerprints. If the scanner glass needs cleaning, moisten a clean, lint-free cloth and gently wipe the scanner glass. Make sure the scanner glass is dry before scanning the next document.
