When copies are made through the auto feeder, only a portion of the page is being copied. I tried contacting Sharp copiers and technical support told me that the timer for the auto feeder is off and needs to be aigned.
Does anyone know how to adjust the timer for the auto feeder?

Most copier has an APS (Auto Paper Selection) as default, 8.5 x8.5 is a square original, I would suggest you manually select the paper tray (e.g. Letter) first (this will temporary disable the APS for this session), then lay it down on the original glass, or ADF (Auto Document Feeder).
If you do not disable APS, you will have paper jamming problem, you do not have 8.5 x8.5 is th paper tray, of course, you may try it feed from the by-pass tray, set the the paper size to 8.5 x8.5 or special size ....... Each manufacturer has a different name for the same function (terminology).
Try cleaning the rollers inside the scanner including the glass inside and out with a soft damped cloth. Look also for a piece of paper, staple wires, paper clips or pencil lead jammed inside the rollers or somewhere in the corner.
Also, look for a foreign object or substance on the cold cathode tube light and clean it. Try also cleaning the mirror.
Please provide model number......however, if it's a "copier style" if you open the auto feeder, there should be a large contact glass and then a small "****" glass on the side that is used when using the auto feeder -clean this glass thoroughly (clean both while you're at it). If it's just a regular style fax machine, there will just be a small glass under the cover that needs to be cleaned.
Not familiar with this particular machine, but it sounds like one which uses a seperate scanner when drawing originals from the sheet feeder.
Have a look to see if there's a glass strip to the side of the main copier face. If so, give that a careful clean.
