Question about Sharp UX B700 Plain Paper Inkjet Fax

1 Answer

Need to open housing to clean bottom plate

Looks like we had a bad ink cartridge that leaked in machine. We cleaned rollers and area that's accesible from the front of the machine. It looks like some of the ink has found it's way below the rollers/cartridge on the housing floor/plate and mixed with dust which the rollers continually pick up and I'm getting faxes with light/gray lines that can't be read. I need to open the housing to be able to clean the bottom plate and get all the ink residue out. I don't see any screws on the bottom plate that I can loosen to remove upper from lower housing. There are 2 openings with tabs (that may have to be pushed to sides to release?). I only see 6 exterior screws (2 lower front housing; 2 upper housing under key pad and 2 in the back on either side. and 2 small screws accessible from the front that look to connect front housing. Any suggestions. Thanks Hank

    Thanks newtekkie for your prompt response to my problem. I took off all 6 visible screws. The bottom plate now gives a little (@ 1/8 ") in the front when I place a flat screw driver and attempt to pry off. Still not enough to get in there with a towel to clean up. There is still something holding it closed. I'm thinking the 2 small tabs on the bottom/each side. They look like metal tabs in a recessed plastic opening. Although they give a little/move from side to side when I pry them with a small screw driverI, they don't give enough and looks like they are what is keeping the bottom plate attached to the upper housing. Don't want to pry too hard and brake the plastic housing and then I won't be able to close it/secure the bottom plate back up when I'm finished cleaning. Any ideas on these tabs??

Unscrew the housing screws. Take a piece of paper towel saturated with denatured alcohol and twist the towel, blot up ink

    Yeah, I would hate for you to accidently break the equipment trying to open it. Have you ever opened the fax machine before? Are you sure you might have to lift the tabs.

I want to inspect and clean the underside of the print head


Your printer should have a clean cartridges mode. Check the settings. that should help. If not, try to replace your cartridges. if they are old, than you should probably need new ones.

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.

I have just replaced all the toner cartridges in my fax and it did a self clean. The machine was making these noises which sounded like the roller was getting stuck. It would then come up with a paper...


Open control panel on your personal computer where the printer is installed. Click the printer and faxes. Then right click on the icon of your printer and click properties. Then click the maintenance Click the Bottom Plate Cleaning. If the noise is still there after you clean the bottom Plate. Clean the Roller. And look inside your printer if there is something that blocking the roller.

How can I get the fax and copy to print clearly?


Still sounds like a bad ink cartridge, try cleaning the bottom of the cartridge with a Kleenex and soapy water. Dry it off real good.

Look where the cartridge sits and clean the same way.

Ink jets are dead technology.

Ink cartridges, recieving fax


It sound like your machine is receiving but as soon as it tries to prints the fax it has this problem.

Rewind the ink ribbon so it is nice and tight in the housing. Clean the black roller above it with some cleaning alcohol or equivalent (nothing too harsh).

See how that goes if you are still having problems replace the whole cartridge (not the refills) PC-401.

No ink


hi i am a certified Canon repair tech for this fax. the problem that you are having is very common and has to do with two things. the cartridge and the purge/cleaning unit. what you can try is this open the printer and center the carridge unit and remove the cartridge. unplug the machine while it is still centered. on the right hand side you will see the purge unit. in the center of the purge unit is what looks like a retanglar pad. mix a water soap solution and apply to pad just soaking it. let it sit for a few minutes. take the ink cartridge and wipe the bottom of the cartridge with a damp soapy cloth. also if you look at the cartridge there is a little breating hole you can hold a cloth on the bottom and gently blow in that hole it will purge ink through the bottom of the cartridge. install the cartridge in the machine close the front door and replug in the power cord. you might still have to run a few cleaning cycles. hope this helps.
