Re: Power Failure message

What is it telling you is that it was unpluged or lost power for a short period of time.
First of all just try pressing the Stop Button.
The try powering it off with the power switch. Remove the power cord for a minute then replace the plug and turn on.
That should clear it.
Anoying message, but just an indication that you lost power unexpectedly.

How do I turn off protocol monitor on sharp fax model fo-235

Had exact same problem on UX 177. You need to clear the memory. On the UX 177 unplug machine, press and hold down the COPY button then press and hold down the STOP button. Keeping these two buttons pressed plug machine in. It should display message "clear memory ?" let go of the COPY and STOP buttons and press the START button. Will then display message "memory cleared". This will also wipe out all other programming but it is the only way to stop protocol report. Then reprogram all your settings.
That stopped protocol report printing after each fax. On some machines it may be the stop and start button the need to be held down on startup. It also seems to make a difference which button you push first even though machine is unplugged.
This problem returns after a power failure so if you have a lot of numbers programmed in you might want to get an inexpensive uninterruptible power supply or plug fax into UPS for computer if you have one.

Why our fax sending and receiving solid black

Its a problem with scaner unit. Reports are being printed out, and do not pass trough scaner, because of thath report is Ok.

If the fax is still under warranty, go to warranty provider service.

Next time dont buy "kids toy" for fax machine. Try laser Canon Fax L140.

The brother fax machine will always print out a transmission report when there is a failure to send a fax.

There is no way to turn this feature off.
The closest option to this is turning transmission reports off, but this will still print out a message when the fax does not go through properly.

Sharp FO-4700 Fax Not Received Even Though OK Fax Confirm Given

It's gone forever, once your machine received a EOT (end of transmission signal), your fax machine thinks it was received OK and clears it from memory.

Lost the Copy and Fax Receive Function

Hi Vic,

I'm sorry to say your fax machine has a bad LASER unit. A laser error code will stop all print functions. The laser units are no longer available.

Q. 1 - When I try to send a fax I get an error message that says: Fax Send Report is set to Off Q. 2 - I have an 1/2 inch black line down one side of any copy I try to make.

1. Usually a "fax send report" just means that you will not receive a "receipt" or "confirmation" that the fax was successfully sent. Changing the setting to off is pretty much just saving you ink & paper. When my fax machine report is set to off, I only receive a receipt if the fax was unsuccessful. However, all fax machines are different and have a mind of their your best bet it to refer to the owner's manual or call the company where it came from.

2. The only thing I can think of is maybe you need to replace the plexi-glass on the copier or do an internal wipe of the underside of the glass. Sometimes the ink can smear from underneath when faxed papers get jammed or printed.

Had a power outage, a day later i noticed fax would not copy or print out internal reports. Faxes received are unreadable. When I try to make 8 or so copies, it scans them but memory stays at 00% and it...

It seems that your fax machine has been damaged by a power "spike" You may or may not be able to get it to work again. You can try to re sequence the machine, by switching off, then removing both the power cord and the telephone cord from the wall. Wait 30 secs or so, then plug in the power cord and switch on. After the machine shows the "ready" mode in the display, then plug in the telephone cord. If this does not work, your machine is toast. Make sure in future to use a line conditioner for both the power and the telephone lines.
