20 Most Recent Sharp UX-B20 Plain Paper Inkjet Fax Questions & Answers


Will the machine run a paper path test?
This sounds like it could be a sensor indicating a paper jam, if this is the case, it won't run anything through the paper path (not even a blank page).

The sad aspect of an inkjet printing mechanism, is that it must be used on regular intervals, else the ink dryes in the jets.

Hello
This the method to clear paper jam, follow these steps:-
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
Turn off the printer.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the ink cartridge. 5 If necessary, remove the ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though.
Replace the ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
Good Luck

Don't worry about the memory being full, the problem is the ink, and once the machine is able to print the FAX will empty memory by printing the faxes out. This might sound bad but I have seen this happen, when you unpacked the new ink cartridge, did you pull off the little plastic protector? And is the paper loaded?

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

It is most often print side down,to make sure just make a copy first.If its blank then turn the original over and try again.

Is it jamming at the document feeder, or in the blank paper tray? You may need to clean the feed rollers. Use a lint-free cloth (not paper) and some alcohol.

well, one of two things have happened, 1. you haven't removed all of the jammed paper, maybe you left a small piece of a piece of paper or you may bent or broken your paper jam sensor. go through the paper path very carefully and check both things.

Hello,

I'm not familiar with this unit. Make sure you are using the original cartridges and not "compatibles." They claim to be the same but they are not. There are some that are fine but their consistency changes all the time. If you are using the right cartridges then it may be the head that's clogged. The head in your unit may or may not be replaceable. If it's a bad clog, the cleaning process will not help. Manually cleaning these nozzles is not recommended because they can be damaged easily.

Check the line for a dial tone on the machine. Either the handset, onhook or speaker phone button. This will test if any comunictions boards have failed in the machine. If you have a dial tone the fax is ok

Next try a manual transmission. Basically make a normal phone call with for example using the handset but have your original in the fax ready to go, ring the fax number when you hear the other fax pick up you press the start button.

Don't forget the other fax may have a problem.
