Make sure the fuser rollers are turning, sometimes the gear either breaks outright or the key on the gear that locks it to the fuser roller shears off and the rollers will not turn proper. Mark the roller with a marking pen run, then see if mark has moved. If not more the likely the gear needs replacement.

Hope this helps...

Sharp Al1655cs copier black smudge down center of page about as wide as a pencil


Hi


Sounds like a fusing error . If your able to wipe the toner off the page its a fuser unit problem (replace fuser unit).

Also clean the copier's paper rollers. Marks on copies will occasionally be the result of a dirty paper-rolling mechanism. Simply access these rollers (your photocopier will likely have a plaque or series of signs indicating the locations of these areas) and wipe them off.

Clean the copier bed's glass plate. One of the most common causes of blemishes in photocopies is a dirty glass plate. In some cases a permanent mark, such as a scratch, will be present on the plate, showing up in every copy as a dark line or spot. However, most problems attributed to the glass plate can be fixed by wiping the plate with a soft towel and common household glass cleaner.

Clear any excess toner that has spilled or overflowed in the toner cartridge chamber. Excess toner will almost always result in blemishes on your copies. The most effective means of cleanup is to remove the toner cartridge and set it aside, thoroughly cleaning up any spilled toner in the compartment before putting the cartridge back in place.

Check for low toner levels. Low toner levels can actually contribute to unsightly lines and blotches on a photocopy. Most photocopiers will automatically indicate the need to replace an empty or low toner cartridge; while the toner is low, these models will permit continued copying. Consult your photocopier's instruction manual or key to warning lights and indicators for how to tell if the toner is low or empty.

Copy to be faxed does not feed in cleanly


Check your users manual...ther is a small re-feed pad made of rubber underneath the doc feeder where your originals feed in...this may be worn or missing...the machine came with a spare when new...if not you'll have to get the pad replaced.

Feeds document too far before it starts copying.


The doc feeder is a little finiky, try letting go of the doc as soon as the feeder detects a doc in place and not force it through the feed slot.

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

There is probably dust under the glass on the mirror...have to remove the glass to wipe the mirror off with a cotton swab, but removing the glass is tricky and very easy to break. Was the first one printed from the fax? I assume that you can receive faxes just fine, but the streaks appear when you copy or send out faxes...

Would be cheaper to replace the fax than repair it.

Fax chews paper when receiving a fax, sends perfectly


Where it is receiving the fax and sending it are 2 different locations.

There must be a piece of paper in the paper path causing it to get "concertinaed ?????

when sending it is NOT going trough the same path.

Here is the manual, there may be some help in the troubleshooting section
