    What model are you using?

F5 and e7 errors will occur on a sharp machine mainly due to dust on the optics. however, it will be easier for you to get better help if you give the model no. of the macine and the sub code for the error which you get by pressing the copy/start button while the error is displayed.

both deal with the scanner located under the big glass. F-5 is bright light that comes on when you make a copy or the reader located under the glass that see the original, the E7 deals with shading of the original again under the glass get a tech to check out.

Sharp MX-6201n get e7-06 error when scanning to thumb drive


Error E7-06 means Image data decode error. This appears due to Image expansion error. It has been caused due to MCU PWB abnormality or USB cable trouble
Try using a different USB cable. If this doesn't help then try the reset procedure---

Sharp ram clear -- Press function 9 * 8 # 7 then # or * until display reads memory clear, then press start. Note the other maintenance mode options displayed on the screen when pressing # or *.

Hope this helps...

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.

Brother mfc 8220 gives error message check original but no paper jam exists.

I assume you're getting this error when sending a fax?
Check original is not a paper jam error. This can happen in the winter due to bad noise on the phone lines. When you send a fax, you can get this result from the receiving machine due to noise. The receiving unit will transmit the error back to the sending unit.
The unit is basically asking you to check the quality of the original document. 90% of the time, there is no problem and the receiving unit actually got a good copy. However, sometimes due to noise on the line the receiving unit will get a poor copy of the fax. In this case the fax should be resent. Of course, since there is no way for you to determine how good the copy is at the receiving unit, in most instances you will have to resend the fax to make sure it goes though.
If, however, you are getting this message while copying (very unlikely) you can do a simple test of the document scanner that should reassure you that there is no serious fault, or pinpoint the actual fault.
Press the following key sequence within 2 seconds: MENU, *, 2, 8, 6, 4. If your unit has a FUNCTION key, use it in place of the MENU key. This should take you to maintenance mode. The display should say MAINTENANCE and all the lights should be flashing. If not, try unplugging the unit, press and hold either the MENU key or the FUNCTION key (depending on which your unit has) and plug the machine back in. This will also take you to maintenance mode.
Now, just press 5 5. This is the scanner area setting command, and if there is any problem with your scanner it will show up here as an error. If there is no fault with the scanner, the unit should return to maintenance mode in a moment. Once done, press 9 9 to exit maintemance mode.
If you are constantly having this error, get a phone repairman in to test your fax line.
