Sharp ARM450-2nd page 50% lighter

We have a Sharp ARM450n. Intermittently, the second page of documents sent to the printer will be lighter than the first. The first page prints normally but the second page appears about 50% lighter. What's going on?

Hi, The M-450 uses two different methods of scanning, 1 for the front and a second for the back. these can be cleaned and adjusted individually.
Make sure both glasses are clean and free from paper dust. If you open the doc feeder and find the two small **** glasses one is attached to the underside of the doc feeder.
Also the machine may need a good servicing with the supplies (Drum, Drum Blade, Developer...) being changed and calibrated.
I know this is a lot of info but there is a lot going on with this machine.
Hope that helps.

Why I sent one page but the recipient received many pages?

Try making a local copy, if the same thing happens then your auto document feeder is not registering the edge of the document. Check the document end sensors for dirt or sticking 'on'.

I cannot scan a document to a single email

file type is probably set to single page. to set the file type to multi page do the following: the scan button on the op panel scan setting file type multi page multi page to have the entire scan job sent as a single file.
if you are scanning jpeg as file type they will only scan as single page docs only pdf and tiff can be sent as multi page files

When the recied it alway prined two pages event they send only one

If I'm understanding your statement correctly, you are sending a single print and receiving two pages?
Look at the document software setting first. Do a "print preview" to see if the document is planning to send two pages.
Sometimes the way the page is actually set-up (be it margins outside printer range etc.) will cause a second page. This would be my first investigation to try to solve your problem. I hope it helps. Good luck!

If no to these, unplug the machine for several minutes and restart.

Hope this is of some help
