Sounds like a job that sent which requires differnt size paper or just froze up the machine.
What you will most likely have to do is, search your menus and setups, and find memory clear. And run a memory clear process.
There some corruption in the fax machines software that needs reset, That will do it.
You will have to then reset date and time, etc. But that should do it.

    Unplug the machine, hold the start and stop buttons while plugging it in. Should reset.

SHARP UX-A1000 - sends all BLACK page (to all

Noisy line? is all that strikes true when you ensure me it makes great photocopys, but then you receive OK, very strange, All the mechanisms for doing a local copy is the same as sending a fax the difference is the conversion to phone noise so it has to be electronic, I;d guess lightning/power surge, cant think of much else....sorry

You can't make it just receive.

Unplug the power cord for 10 seconds.

Sharp Inkjet UX A 1000

I had the same problem and, like you, went to the internet to find a solution. One answer I found was to unplug the vax, wait one minute and then replug it. This didn't solve the problem for me. Out of desperation, I printed the fax "Help" pagea nd, lo and behold, after it printed my Sharp 510 Fax was back to normal.

Memory tx

It means you have a fax in memory that cannot be sent.

Do you have DSL or any kind of digital phone line? Do you have a dial-tone?

Unplug the power cord and re-plug.

Printer problem

It sounds like a bad encoder strip (ribbon cable). Uneconomical to repair.

Sharp uxb700 document jammed appears in the message window blinking-cant clear it. no sign of any paper jammed already tried unplugging and clearing memory

If you lift up the panel and look underneath there are two black plastic "levers" one to the right and one to the bottom of the black roller. The larger one on the right was stuck. When I pushed on it and it popped up the "document jammed" message disappeared.

Can't receive fax but can send

Call your cell phone from the fax machine and check the caller ID to make sure that it is the correct number for your fax machine. Next, call the fax machine from you cell phone, and make sure the fax machine rings. Problems like these are almost always a phone line issue, not the machine.
