the SPF is ready for use.
TURNING THE POWER ON AND OFF
The power switch is located on the left side of the machine.
POWER ON
POWER OFF
Turn the power switch to the "ON" position
Make sure that the machine is not in operation
and then turn the power switch to the "OFF"
position.
• It will take about 45 seconds
for the machine to warm up.
• When the power switch is
turned to the "ON" position,
the message "System check."
will appear in the message
display and warm-up will start.
Once the copier has finished warming up, the
message display will change to "Ready to copy." and
the START indicator will light up to indicate that
copying is possible. Copy settings can be selected
during warm-up.
• If auditing mode has been enabled (see the "Key
operator's guide"), the message "Enter your account
number." will appear after warming up. Once a valid
account number has been entered, the message
display will change to "Ready to copy." and copying
will be possible.
Note
If the power switch is turned off
while the machine is in
operation, a misfeed may occur
and the job that was in progress
will be canceled.
• If the fax option is installed, be sure to keep the power turned on.
Faxes cannot be received when the power is turned off.
• The machine is set at the factory to return all settings to the default settings one minute after a copy job is
finished (auto clear function). When the settings return to the default settings, any functions that were selected
are canceled. The auto clear time can be changed in the key operator programs. (See the "Key operator's
guide".)
Power save modes
The machine has two power save modes to reduce power consumption, thereby helping to reduce environmental
pollution and conserve resources.
Preheat mode
This function automatically switches the machine to a low power consumption state if the duration of time set in the
key operator programs elapses without the machine being used when the power is on. In preheat mode the display
turns off. Normal operation automatically resumes when a key on the operation panel is pressed, an original is
placed, or a print job or fax is received.
Auto power shut-off mode
This function automatically switches the machine to a state that consumes even less power than preheat mode if the
duration of time set in the key operator programs elapses without the machine being used when the power is on.
During auto power shut-off, only the mode key indicators are lit. To restore the machine to normal operation, press
any one of the mode keys. Normal operation also resumes automatically when a print job or fax is received or
scanning is begun from a computer. While auto power shut-off is in effect, pressing a key other than a mode key will
have no effect.
Note
The preheat mode activation time and the "Auto power shut-off timer" can be changed in the key operator
programs. (See the "Key operator's guide".)

Follow these guidelines when using special paper.
• Use SHARP recommended transparency film and label sheets. Using other than SHARP recommended paper
may result in misfeeds or smudges on the output.
• There are many varieties of special paper available on the market, and some cannot be used with this machine.
Before using special paper, contact a SHARP service center.
• Before using other than SHARP recommended paper, make a test copy to see if the paper is suitable.
LOADING PAPER

Make sure that the machine is not copying or printing, and then follow these steps to load paper.
Loading paper in a tray
1
Gently lift and pull out the paper tray.
4
Fan the paper.
If you are adding the same size
of paper, go to step 3. If you are
loading a different size of paper,
go to the next step.
2
Adjust the plates in the tray to the
length and width of the paper.
Plate B
Plate A
3
Fan the paper well before
loading it. If the paper is not
fanned, double-feeds or
misfeeds may occur.
5
• The plate A is a slide-type
guide. Grasp the locking knob
on the guide and slide the
guide to the indicator line of
the paper to be loaded.
• The plate B is an insert-type
guide. Remove it and then
insert it at the indicator line of
the paper to be loaded.
• When using 11" x 17" sized
paper store the plate B in the
slot at the left front of the
paper tray.
Push the pressure plate down.
Place the paper in the tray.
Note
6
• Do not load paper higher than the line on
the tray (up to 250 sheets).
• Make sure that the paper fits under the
tab on the right side of the tray.
• Make sure the stack of paper is straight
before loading it. When adding paper,
take the remaining paper out and combine
it into a single stack with the new paper.
Push the paper tray back in.
Push the upper paper tray in
completely.
Push the center of the pressure
plate down until it locks into
place.
Note
If the size of the loaded paper is different
from the size shown in the display, be sure

PAPER SIZE SETTING OF A TRAY" (page
21) to change the paper size setting of the
tray.
19
BEFORE USING THE PRODUCT
Loading paper in the bypass tray
1
Open the bypass tray.
Important points when inserting
paper in the bypass tray
• Up to 100 sheets of standard copy paper can be set
in the bypass tray.
• Be sure to place 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (A6 and B6) size
paper and envelopes horizontally as shown in the
following diagram.
Pull out the bypass tray
extension to load 8-1/2" x 14"
and 11" x 17" (B4 and A3) size
paper.

Set the bypass tray guides to the
paper width.
3
Insert the copy paper (print side
down) all the way into the bypass tray.
Make sure that the print side of
the paper is face down.
To prevent a misfeed, verify
once more that the bypass tray
guides are adjusted to the width
of the paper.
Note
20
If you loaded paper in the bypass tray, press
the [PAPER] key to select the bypass tray.
• When loading envelopes, make sure that they are
straight and flat and do not have loosely glued
construction flaps (not the closure flap).
• Special papers except SHARP recommended
transparency film, labels, and envelopes must be fed
one sheet at a time through the bypass tray.
• When adding paper, first remove any paper
remaining in the tray, combine it with the paper to be
added and then reload as a single stack. The paper
to be added must be the same size and type as the
paper already in the tray.
• Do not use paper that is smaller than the original.
This may cause smudges or unclean images.
• Do not use paper that has already been printed on
by a laser printer or plain paper fax machine. This
may cause smudges or unclean images.
Envelopes
Do not use the following envelopes, as misfeeds will
occur.
• Envelopes with metal tabs, clasps, strings, holes, or
windows.
• Envelopes with rough fibers, carbon paper, or glossy
surfaces.
• Envelopes with two or more flaps.
• Envelopes with tape, film, or paper attached to the
flap.
• Envelopes with a fold in the flap.
• Envelopes with glue on the flap to be moistened for
sealing.
• Envelopes with labels or stamps.
• Envelopes that are slightly inflated with air.
• Envelopes with glue protruding from the seal area.
• Envelopes with part of the seal area peeled off.

Note
• The center tray can hold a maximum of
250 sheets (150 sheets when the job
separator tray kit is installed).
• About one minute after copying ends,
"Auto clear" (page 18) activates and
restores the copy settings to the initial
settings. The duration of time after which
"Auto clear" clears the copy settings can
be changed in the key operator programs.
(See the "Key operator's guide".)
• To stop copying in the middle of a run,
press the [C] key. If you find it difficult to
remove the original from the document
feeder tray, open the feeding roller cover
before removing the original. If you pull
out the original without opening the
feeding roller cover, the original may
become dirty.
Stream feeding mode
If stream feeding mode has been enabled in the key
operator programs (see the "Key operator's guide"),
the message "Set originals for stream feeding." will
appear in the display for 5 seconds after all originals
have been fed from the SPF. Any new originals placed
in the SPF while this message appears will be fed and
copied automatically.
COPY FUNCTIONS
Auto paper select mode
When auto paper select mode is enabled, "AUTO" appears in the paper size display. This function automatically
selects paper that is the same size as the original (5-1/2" x 8-1/2", 8-1/2" x 11", 8-1/2" x 11"R, 8-1/2" x 13", 8-1/2"
x 14", 11" x 17", A5, B5, B5R, A4, A4R, B4, A3 paper).
• If a zoom setting is selected after placing the original, the paper size that is appropriate for the zoom setting will
be automatically selected.
• Auto paper select mode is canceled if the auto zoom select function (page 52) is enabled or if a paper tray is selected
with the [PAPER] key. Auto paper select resumes operation when the [CA] key is pressed or when "Auto clear"
activates. Auto paper select mode can be disabled in the key operator programs. (See the "Key operator's guide".)
Removing the document cover
Originals that can be used in the SPF
To copy large originals like newspapers, remove the
document cover. To remove the cover, lift it straight
up as shown. To replace the cover, do the reverse.
The SPF cannot be removed.
Originals from 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" to 11" x 17" (A5 to A3) in
size and 15 lbs. to 24 lbs. (56 g/m2 to 90 g/m2) in weight
can be used. A maximum of 40 pages can be placed at
once. For originals that are 8-1/2" x 14" or larger (B4 or
larger), a maximum of 30 pages can be placed at once.
Note
Copying books or originals with folds or
creases
Press down on the SPF (or document cover) while
copying as shown. If the SPF (or document cover) is
not completely closed, shadows may appear on the
copy or it may be fuzzy. Straighten originals with
folds or creases well before placing.
• Make sure that there are no paper
clips or staples on the original.
• Straighten curled originals before placing
them in the document feeder tray. Curled
originals may cause misfeeds.
• If the margin shift function is being
used, the margin shift settings may
need to be changed. (Page 68)
Originals that cannot be used in the SPF
The following originals cannot be used: These may
cause misfeeds or smudging and unclear images.
• Transparencies, tracing paper, other transparent
or translucent paper, and photographs.
• Carbon paper, thermal paper.
• Originals that are creased, folded, or torn.
• Glued originals, cut-out originals.
• Originals with binder holes.
• Originals printed using an ink ribbon (thermal transfer
printing), originals on thermal transfer paper.
Points concerning the position of the printed copy image
Even if the same original is copied onto the same type of paper, differences in the original size, scanning location
(document glass or document feeder tray), selected paper tray, enlargement/reduction ratio, and other conditions
may cause the position of the printed copy image on the paper to vary.
As shown in the following example, when an original smaller than the paper size (for example, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
original and 11" x 17" paper) is copied from the document glass, the position of the printed copy image on the
paper is different when paper from tray 1 is used (1) and paper from the bypass tray is used (2).

• The set number of copies appears in the display. A maximum of 999 copies (factory default setting) can be set.
• A single copy can be made even if "0" is displayed.
Note
• If you enter the wrong number, press the [C] key and enter the correct number.
• The limit for the number of copies can be changed in the key operator programs. (See the "Key operator's
guide".)
Important note when making a large number of copies
If the number of sheets output to the center tray exceed its maximum capacity (250 sheets when a job separator tray
kit is not installed, 150 sheets when a job separator tray kit is installed) during a copy job, the copy job will stop
temporarily. If this happens, promptly remove the copies and press the [OK] key to resume copying. The copy job
will step each time the number of sheets in the center tray reach its maximum capacity.
Before starting a long copy run, remove any sheets that remain in the center tray. During output of the copy job,
exercise care as the job may stop frequently due to the center tray becoming full.

ROTATING THE IMAGE 90 DEGREES
(Rotation copy)
When "Auto paper select mode" or "automatic ratio selection" are in operation and the original is placed in a different
orientation (vertical or horizontal) from the paper, the original image will be automatically rotated 90 degrees to
enable correct copying onto the paper.
This function is convenient for copying 8-1/2" x 14" or 11" x 17" (B4 or A3) originals, which can only be placed
horizontally, onto paper that is loaded vertically.
The rotation copy function is initially enabled. It can be disabled in the key operator programs. (See the "Key
operator's guide".)
Note
• The rotation copy function cannot be used in combination with the margin shift function.
• Rotation copy will not operate when a copy is enlarged to a paper size greater than 8-1/2" x 11" (A4). In this
case, place the original in the same orientation as the paper.
• Even if rotation copy is disabled in the key operator programs, rotation copy will function when the 2 in 1 or 4 in

: Negative (Ames Test)
: In 1996 the IARC reevaluated carbon black as a Group 2B carcinogen (possible human
carcinogen). This classification is given to chemicals for which there is inadequate human
evidence, but sufficient animal evidence on which to base an opinion of carcinogenicity. The
classification is based upon the development of lung tumors in rats receiving chronic inhalation
exposures to free carbon black at levels that induce particle overload of the lung. Studies
performed in animal models other than rats did not show any association between carbon black
and lung tumors. Moreover, a two-year cancer bioassay using a typical toner preparation
containing carbon black demonstrated no association between toner exposure and tumor
development in rats.

Mutagenicity
Carcinogenicity
: LD50 > 2500mg/kg (Rats)
: No data
: No data
: Not an irritant (Rabbits)
: No sensitization
: Negative (Ames Test)
: In 1996 the IARC reevaluated carbon black as a Group 2B carcinogen (possible human
carcinogen). This classification is given to chemicals for which there is inadequate human
evidence, but sufficient animal evidence on which to base an opinion of carcinogenicity. The
classification is based upon the development of lung tumors in rats receiving chronic inhalation
exposures to free carbon black at levels that induce particle overload of the lung. Studies
performed in animal models other than rats did not show any association between carbon black
and lung tumors. Moreover, a two-year cancer bioassay using a typical toner preparation
containing carbon black demonstrated no association between toner exposure and tumor
development in rats.

Note
When the job separator tray is
installed
The output tray can be selected when
selecting print settings at the time of
printing. To change the tray selection, select
the desired tray in "Output" in the [Paper]
tab of the printer driver setup screen.
The print job is delivered to the output tray, with
the position of the paper offset slightly from the
previous job (offset function).
IF THE TRAY RUNS OUT OF PAPER DURING PRINTING
Add paper to the tray that ran out or to the bypass tray. If you add paper to the bypass tray, press the [PRINT] key on
the machine to switch to printer mode and select "BYPASS-TRAY". Printing will resume. Note that if the "AUTO
TRAY SWITCHING" setting is selected in the "PAPER SIZE SET" (accessed by pressing the [SPECIAL
FUNCTION] key) and there is the same size of paper in another tray, the machine will automatically switch to the
other tray and continue printing.
PAUSING A PRINT JOB
To pause a print job, press the [PRINT] key on the machine to switch to printer mode and then select "OFFLINE"
with the [ ] key. The machine pauses the print job and then goes offline.
• To cancel a print job, press the [C] key ( ).
• To resume printing, select "ONLINE" with the [ ] key.
WHEN "PAPER SOURCE" IS SET TO [AUTO SELECT]
If "Paper Source" is set to [Auto Select] in the [Paper] tab of the printer driver setup screen and the correct size of
paper for a print job is not loaded in the machine, the printing procedure will vary depending on the "FORCED
OUTPUT OF PRINT" setting (page 26) in the key operator programs.
When "FORCED OUTPUT OF PRINT" is disabled
Add paper to the bypass tray, press the [PRINT] key on the machine to switch to printer mode, and select
"BYPASS-TRAY". Printing will resume.
When "FORCED OUTPUT OF PRINT" is enabled
The closest size of paper in a tray other than the bypass tray will be used for printing.
Note
When the dual function board is installed
• If the print image is in a different orientation than the paper, the print image will be automatically rotated 90
degrees to enable correct printing on the paper. (Other than the bypass tray)
When the dual function board is not installed
• Be sure to set each tray's paper size in "Set Tray Status" in the "Configuration" tab of the printer driver setup
screen. See "CONFIGURING THE PRINTER DRIVER" in "3. TROUBLESHOOTING AND USEFUL
INFORMATION" in the "Software setup guide".
When printing, be sure to specify a tray other than "Auto Select" in "Paper Source" in the "Paper" tab of the
printer driver setup screen.
HOW [BYPASS TRAY] AND [BYPASS MANUAL] DIFFER
IN THE "PAPER SOURCE" SETTINGS
There are two bypass tray settings in "Paper Source" in the [Paper] tab of the printer driver setup screen:
• When [Bypass Tray] is selected, the print job is automatically printed on the paper in the bypass tray.
• When [Bypass Manual] is selected, the print job is not printed until paper is inserted into the bypass tray. If paper
is already in the bypass tray, remove the paper and then re-insert it to begin printing.

TROUBLESHOOTING
A notice page is printed
If you find that a notice page has been printed at the end of a print job, the print data received from the computer has
not been printed as specified. Fix the problem as explained below and then try printing again.
What to do when a notice page is printed
****************************************************
Notice Page
****************************************************
Note
The IMC memory full error had occurred,
a normal output was not able to be executed.
• The Notice Page can be set to not print
out in "NOTICE PAGE" (page 26) of the
key operator programs.
When the dual function board is installed
Please refer to the operation manual for
the solution method.
The above notice page is printed when a print job
containing more data than can be held in the memory
of the dual function board is sent. Deactivate the
ROPM function by removing the checkmark from
[ROPM] in the [Configuration] tab of the printer driver
setup screen. If you need to use the ROPM function,
set the "Print quality" in the printer driver to [Draft], or
increase the amount of memory in the machine.
• The memory of the dual function board is used
to temporarily hold print data when the ROPM
function is used. This memory is also used to
temporarily store the image of the original during
copying. The proportion of memory allocated to
the printer function can be changed in the key
operator programs. See the "Key operator's
guide". The memory can also be increased by
adding the optional memory modules. For
details, contact your SHARP dealer.
When the dual function board is not
installed
• A notice page such as "The incorrect driver
is chosen, a normal output was not able to
be executed....." will be printed if you
attempt to print using the print driver for the
dual function board. Install the standard print
driver as explained in "1. INSTALLING THE
SOFTWARE (THAT ACCOMPANIES THE
MACHINE)" in the "Software setup guide"
and select the standard driver when printing.
SCANNING PROBLEMS
Problem
Cause and solution
The document glass or the underside of the document
cover/SPF is dirty.
→ Clean regularly.
The original is smudged or blotchy.
→ Use a clean original.

You have not specified a suitable resolution.
→ Make sure that the resolution setting in the scanner driver is
appropriate for the original.
18
You are scanning a large area (for example an entire 11" x
17" or A3 document) at high resolution.
Poor scanning
quality.
→ If you attempt to scan a large area at high resolution and there is insufficient
memory in the machine to hold the scanned data, scanning will take place at
a lower resolution and the scanner driver will enhance the data to make up
for the lower resolution. However, the quality of the enhanced image will not
be as high as if scanning took place at the higher resolution. To scan a
ledger or A3 original in full color at 600 dpi without using enhancement, the
dual function board and 256 MB memory option are required.
17
You have not specified a suitable value for the "B/W
Threshold" setting.
→ If you are using a TWAIN-compliant application and are using
[White], [Red], [Green], or [Blue] for "Light Source" in the TWAIN
driver, make sure that the "B/W Threshold" setting is appropriate. A
larger threshold value makes your output darker, while a small
threshold value makes it lighter. To adjust the threshold
automatically, click the [Auto Threshold] button on the [Image] tab of
the "Custom Settings (or Professional)" screen.

The brightness and contrast settings are not suitable.
→ If you are scanning with a TWAIN-compliant application and the
resulting image has unsuitable brightness or contrast (for example it
is too bright), click the [Auto Brightness/Contrast Adjustment] button
on the [Color] tab of the "Custom Settings (or Professional)" screen.
You can also click the [Brightness/Contrast] button to adjust the
brightness and the contrast while viewing the scanned output image
on the screen. If you are scanning with a WIA-compliant application
or the "Scanner and Camera Wizard", click [Adjust the quality of the
scanned picture] or the [Custom settings] button and adjust the
brightness and contrast.
–
[Quick Scan] has been selected. (With the dual function
board installed)
Poor scanning
quality.
→ If scanning is performed when [Quick Scan] has been selected in the
[Preference] tab of the "Custom Settings (or Professional)" of the
TWAIN driver, image quality may be degraded. This is because the
scanned data is transferred using JPEG compression. If image
quality is poor, then perform scanning again without selecting the
[Quick Scan] option. (By default [Quick Scan] is not selected.)
The original is not placed face up in the SPF or face down
on the document glass.
→ Place the original face up in the SPF or face down on the document
glass.
The original was not placed in the correct position.
→ Place the original correctly.
If scanning is not possible, shut down your computer,
turn off the machine's power switch, and unplug the
machine's power cord. Next, start your computer, restore
power to the machine, and try scanning again. If scanning
is still not possible, check the following items.

BEFORE USING THE FAX
FUNCTION
This chapter contains basic information about using the fax function of the machine. Please read this chapter before
using the fax function.
POINTS TO CHECK AND PROGRAM
AFTER INSTALLATION
After installing the machine and before using it as a fax machine, check the following points and program the
required information.
Set the date and time
The machine has an internal clock. It is important to set the correct date and time because they are used for such
features as Timer Transmission (page 34).
The date and time are set in the key operator programs. (Page 99)
The date and time appear in the display. Make sure the correct date and time appear. If the date and time are wrong,
please correct them.
Program the sender's name and sender's number
The name and fax number of the user of the machine is programmed in "OWN PASSCODE SET" (page 96) in the
key operator programs. (Only one name and number can be programmed.)
The programmed name and number are printed at the top of each transmitted fax page. The sender's number is also
used as an identification number when you use the Polling function to request transmission from another fax
machine (see "USING THE POLLING FUNCTION" on page 37).
Note
You can check your programmed name and number by printing out the "Key Operator List" in the key operator
programs. (See "LIST PRINT" on page 95.)
Paper sizes that can be used for fax mode
The machine can use A3, B4, A4, A4R, B5, B5R, A5, 11" x 17", 8-1/2" x 14", 8-1/2" x 11", 8-1/2" x 11"R, and 5-1/2"
x 8-1/2"* size paper; however, 11" x 17", 8-1/2" x 14" and 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" size paper cannot be used in fax mode.
(Among INCH sizes, only 8-1/2" x 11" and 8-1/2" x 11"R can be used.) (If your machine uses inch-based paper
sizes, A3, B4, B5, B5R, and A5 size paper cannot be used in fax mode. (Among AB sizes, only A4 and A4R can be
used.)) For this reason, if only paper sizes that can be used in other modes but not in fax mode are loaded in the
machine, received faxes cannot be printed. (For other points regarding fax reception, see "RECEIVING FAXES"
page 28.)
* A5 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") size paper can only be loaded in tray 1, regardless of the mode. A5 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") paper cannot be
loaded in tray 2 or in the optional 250-sheet paper feed unit or 2 x 250-sheet paper feed unit.
Note
For the procedures for loading paper in the trays, see the "Operation manual (for general information and
copier)".

PLACING THE ORIGINAL
An original can be placed in the SPF or on the document glass. Use the SPF when faxing a large number of sheet
originals. Use the document glass to fax originals that cannot be scanned using the SPF such as thick or thin sheet
originals, or books or other bound originals.
USING THE SPF
1 Open the SPF, make sure that an
original has not been left on the
document glass, and then gently
close the SPF.
2
Adjust the original guides on the
document feeder tray to the width of
the document.
3
Align the edges of the document pages
and then insert the stack in the document
feeder tray so that the first page is face up.
• Insert the originals all the way
into the document feeder tray.
• Make sure the stack does not
exceed the indicator line
(maximum of 40 sheets, or 30
sheets of 90 g/m2 (24 lbs.)
paper, thickness 4 mm (5/32")
or less).
• Do not load originals that are different
sizes even if the widths are the same.
This may cause misfeeds.
• Use the SPF for long originals. The
document glass cannot be used.
• When inserting a long original, the original
should be in contact with the surface of
the document feeder tray. If the original is
not in contact with the surface of the
document feeder tray, an incorrect original
size may be detected.
Note
USING THE DOCUMENT GLASS
1
Open the SPF, place the original face
down on the document glass, and
then gently close the SPF.
• If auto power shut-off has
activated, press the [FAX] key,
wait until the machine has
returned to normal operation,
and then place the original.
• When transmitting a small
original such as a postcard, be
sure to press the [ORIGINAL
SIZE] key and set the original
size. (Page 14)
Regardless of the size of the original, place the original
in the far left corner of the document glass. (Align the
upper left-hand corner of the original with the tip of
the mark.) Place the original in the appropriate
position for its size as shown below.

CONVENIENT DIALLING METHODS (AUTO-DIALLING)
The fax function includes a convenient auto dial feature (Rapid dialling, speed dialling and group dialling). By
programming frequently dialled numbers, you can call and send faxes to these locations by means of a simple
dialling operation (page 20). There are three types of auto-dialling: Rapid dialling, speed dialling, and group dialling.
To program auto-dial numbers, see page 62.
• Rapid dialling
A stored destination can be dialled by simply pressing
a Rapid key ([01] to [50]). A name up to 36 characters
in length can be programmed for the location (a
maximum of 12 characters are displayed).
When using F-code transmission, a sub-address and
passcode (page 48) can also be programmed .
• Speed dialling (300 stations)
A stored destination can be dialled by pressing the
[SPEED] key, entering a 3-digit number (000 to 299),
and pressing the [START] key ( ). A name
(maximum 36 characters) can be stored for each
destination.
When using F-code transmission, a sub-address and
passcode (page 48) can also be programmed.
• Group dialling
Multiple Rapid dial and/or Speed dial destinations can
be stored in a Rapid key for Group dialling.
Destinations can also be stored for Group dialling by
entering fax numbers with the numeric keys. This is
convenient for communicating with a group of other
fax machines.
• REDIALLING
The machine retains the last fax or phone number
dialled. This number can be redialled by simply
pressing the [REDIAL] key and then the [START] key
( ).
• If you pressed a numeric key during the previous call,
the [REDIAL] key may not dial the correct number.
• Redialling is not possible to broadcast transmission
(page 32), serial polling (page 38), timer
transmission (page 34), group dialling (page 20), or
F-code transmission (page 55) destinations.
• ON-HOOK DIALLING
This feature allows you to dial without lifting an
extension phone connected to the machine. Press the
[SPEAKER] key, listen for the dial tone through the
speaker, and then dial.
• If a person answers, lift the extension phone to
answer. (You can only speak to the other party if an
extension phone is connected to the machine.)
• Faxes must be sent manually when using on-hook
dialling. (Page 24)
• On-hook dialling is not possible using a Rapid key
that includes a sub-address and passcode, or a
group dial key.

BASIC OPERATIONS
This chapter explains the basic procedures for sending and receiving faxes.
There are three basic methods for fax transmission: memory transmission, direct transmission, and manual
transmission. When memory transmission is used, the document is temporarily stored in memory before being
transmitted. When direct transmission or manual transmission is used, the document is transmitted without being
stored in memory, The default transmission setting can be set to "MEMORY TX" or "DIRECT TX" using "SEND
MODE" (page 101) in the key operator programs. To manually switch between "MEMORY TX" and "DIRECT TX",
use the [COMM. SETTING] key. (See "Faxing by direct transmission" on page 23.)
The following explanations generally assume that memory transmission is being used.

BASIC OPERATIONS
Transmission settings (memory transmission mode and direct
transmission mode)
Transmission modes include memory transmission, where the original is temporarily scanned into memory before
transmission, and direct transmission, where the original is transmitted directly without being scanned into memory.
There are two types of memory transmission: "Storing a transmission" (page 24), where all pages of the original are
scanned into memory before transmission begins, and "Quick online transmission" (page 25), where the destination
is dialled after the first page is scanned and the remaining pages are transmitted as they are scanned.
During a memory transmission, it may happen that the memory becomes full while the originals are being scanned.
(See "If the memory becomes full during transmission of a stored transmission job" on page 24 and "If the memory
becomes full during a quick online transmission" on page 25.) The number of pages that can be stored in memory
varies depending on the content of the pages, the transmission settings, and whether memory has been added.
If there are too many pages and memory transmission is not possible, you can press the [COMM. SETTING] key to
switch from memory transmission to direct transmission. When direct transmission is used, transmission begins after
the current job is completed, allowing you to give priority to a transmission job. As such, direct transmission is a
convenient means of performing an interrupt transmission when there are a large number of stored transmission jobs.
To switch between memory transmission and direct transmission, see the following "Faxing by direct transmission".
When transmission is performed manually using an extension phone connected to the machine or using on-hook
dialling, direct transmission is automatically selected. (Memory transmission is not possible.)

• To cancel dialling using the [SPEAKER]
key when you need to redial the number
or because transmission was interrupted,
press the [SPEAKER] key once again.
• As the original is not stored in memory
when direct transmission and manual
transmission are used, the following
functions cannot be used.
Broadcast transmission (page 32), timer
transmission (page 34), F-code relay
broadcast transmission (page 59), redial
(page 102), image rotation (page 100),
duplex scanning, dual pages, and others.
• When a fax is sent by direct transmission
or manual transmission, the fax is sent
after the connection with the receiving
machine is established.
Storing transmission jobs (memory transmission)
When the line is in use, the transmission job is temporarily stored in memory. When the current job and any
previously stored jobs are completed, transmission begins automatically. (This is called memory transmission.) This
means that transmission jobs can be stored in memory by performing a transmission operation while the machine is
occupied with another transmission/reception operation. Up to 50 jobs can be stored in memory at once. After
transmission, the scanned document data is cleared from memory. You can check transmission jobs stored in
memory in the fax job status screen. (Page 27) Note that depending on the number of pages stored in memory and
the transmission settings, it may not be possible to store 50 jobs in memory.
• The procedure for storing a transmission job is the same as the procedure in "BASIC PROCEDURE FOR
SENDING FAXES" on page 18.
• If you have not yet pressed the [START] key ( ), you can cancel a transmission job by pressing the [C] key.
• If you have already pressed the [START] key ( ), see "Cancelling a stored transmission job" (page 27). If the
original is still being scanned after the [START] key ( ) is pressed, you can press the [C] key to cancel the
transmission.
• If you store a transmission job in direct transmission mode, you will not be able to store any further transmission jobs.
After transmission, the scanned document data is cleared from memory. You can check transmission jobs stored in
memory in the fax job status screen. (Page 27)
If the memory becomes full during transmission of a stored transmission job
If the memory becomes full while scanning the first page of a document, the transmission job is automatically cancelled.
If the memory becomes full while scanning the second page or a following page, scanning stops. In this case, you
can either press the [C] key to cancel the transmission, or press the [OK] key to transmit only those pages which
were completely scanned.
24
BASIC OPERATIONS
Quick On-line
When you use the SPF to send a multi-page document and there are no previously stored jobs waiting or in
progress (and the line is not being used), the machine dials the destination after the first page is scanned and begins
transmitting scanned pages while the remaining pages are being scanned. This transmission method is called Quick
On-line. When a quick online transmission is being performed, the message display shows "READING" "DIALLING" - "COMM." - "SENDING" in that order until scanning of the remaining pages is completed. When all
pages have been scanned, "READ END" appears before the above messages appear.
If the receiving party is busy, the quick online transmission will change into a stored transmission job (memory
transmission). (See "Storing transmission jobs (memory transmission)" on page 24.)
If the memory becomes full during a quick online transmission
If the memory becomes full while scanning the first page of a document, the transmission job is automatically
cancelled. If the memory becomes full while scanning the second page or a following page, those pages which were
completely scanned will be transmitted.
Note
The machine is initially set (factory setting) to perform Quick On-line transmission. If desired, you can disable this
function in the key operator programs. (See "QUICK ON LINE TX" on page 101.) When an original is transmitted
using the following methods, the job will be stored in memory. (Quick On-line transmission will not be performed.)
• Sending a fax from the document glass.
• Broadcast transmission (page 32)
• Timer transmission (page 34)
• F-code transmission (page 48 in Chapter 4)
If the receiving party is busy
If the receiving party is busy, the transmission is temporarily cancelled and then automatically re-attempted after a
brief interval. (Two attempts are made at an interval of 3 minutes.*1)
If you do not want the machine to re-attempt the transmission, press the [FAX STATUS] key and cancel the job.
(Page 27)
*1 The settings can be changed in the key operator programs. (See "RECALL SETTING (BUSY)" on page 102.)
If a transmission error occurs
If an error occurs that prevents transmission or the receiving machine does not answer the call within 45 seconds*2,
the transmission is stopped and then automatically re-attempted later. One attempt is made at an interval of 1
minute.*2) If you do not want the machine to re-attempt the transmission, press the [FAX STATUS] key and cancel
the job. (Page 27) This machine also supports error correction mode (ECM) and is set to automatically resend any
part of a fax that is distorted due to noise on the line.
*2 The settings can be changed in the key operator programs. (See "RING TIMEOUT IN AUTO TX" (page 103) and
"RECALL SET (ERR)" (page 102).)
Image rotation
The machine is initially set to rotate a vertically-placed ( ) document 90° so that it is oriented horizontally ( )
before transmission (A4 (8-1/2" x 11") originals are rotated to A4R (8-1/2" x 11"R) and A5R originals are rotated to
A5). A4R (8-1/2" x 11"R) originals and A5 originals are not rotated. If desired, you can disable the rotation function in
the key operator programs as explained on "ROTATE TX" (page 100).
Note
Place A5 size originals so that they are oriented vertically ( ). If oriented horizontally, ( A5R orientation), press
the [ORIGINAL SIZE] key and specify the correct original size (select "A5R") (See "MANUALLY SETTING THE
SCANNING SIZE" on page 14.)

RECEIVING FAXES
When another fax machine sends a fax to your machine, your machine will ring*, automatically receive the fax, and
begin printing. (This is called automatic reception.)
If you do not wish to have received faxes printed immediately, use the print hold function to hold received faxes in
memory for printing at your convenience (all received faxes will be printed at once). To enable this function and print
received faxes, see "FAX PRINT HOLD FUNCTION" on page 30.
Note
• You can store a transmission job while fax reception is in progress. (See "Storing transmission jobs (memory
transmission)" on page 24.)
• To print received fax pages on both sides of the paper, enable "DUPLEX RECEPTION" (page 105) in the key
operator programs.
• If a extension phone is not connected to the machine, use automatic reception.
• In order to receive faxes, paper must be loaded in the paper tray. See "LOADING PAPER" in the "Operation
manual (for general information and copier)" to load appropriate paper. Incoming faxes will be automatically
adjusted to the orientation of the printing paper, so there is no need to load both horizontally ( ) and vertically
( ) oriented paper. However, when a fax smaller than A4 (8-1/2" x 11") is received, the size of paper used to
print the fax will differ depending on the orientation (horizontal or vertical) of the original in the sending
machine.
RECEIVING A FAX
1
The machine will ring* and reception
will automatically begin.
2
Reception ends.
The LINE indicator lights up.
• When reception ends, the
machine sounds a beep.
• When the optional job
separator tray kit is installed,
received faxes are output to
the job separator.
*Number of rings
The machine has been set to ring twice before
beginning automatic reception. You can change the
number of rings to any number from 0 to 9 in the key
operator programs. (See "#OF RINGS AT. RX" on
page 104.)
If the number of rings is set to 0, the machine will
receive faxes without ringing.
Note
The job separator has a sensor that detects
when a tray is full. When approximately 100
sheets accumulate in a tray, a message
appears in the display and fax printing
stops. If this happens, remove the sheets.
Printing will resume momentarily.
Earlier output of received data
If a fax cannot be printed because the machine is out of the appropriate paper and another fax is subsequently
received that can be printed, the subsequently received fax will be printed before the fax that cannot be printed.
This also happens when there are several faxes in memory that cannot be printed.
This function can be disabled in the key operator programs. (See "EARLIER OUTPUT" on page 106.)
LINE STATUS indicator
After a received fax is printed, the LINE STATUS indicator will blink while the printed fax
remains on the job separator tray. When the fax is removed from the tray, the indicator
stops blinking. If the job separator tray kit is not installed, the LINE STATUS indicator will
turn off when printing of the received fax is finished. The conditions under which the
indicator blinks and stops blinking vary depending on the settings in the key operator
programs. (See "FAX RECEPTION LIGHT" on page 103.)
Note
28
If a removed fax is returned to the job separator tray, the LINE STATUS indicator
will not resume blinking.

BASIC OPERATIONS
F-code confidential fax reception
When a fax has been received by F-code confidential fax reception, an icon ( ) will appear in the base screen of
fax mode (message display (1) on page 10). The icon also appears in front of the box in the F-code confidential box
name screen in the display. (Step 6 on page 57) Print the received fax as explained in "PRINTING A DOCUMENT
RECEIVED TO AN F-CODE CONFIDENTIAL MEMORY BOX" (page 57).
If received data cannot be printed
If the machine runs out of paper or toner, or a paper misfeed occurs, or if the machine is printing a print or copy job,
received faxes will be held in memory until printing becomes possible. The received faxes are automatically printed
when printing is possible. When received faxes are held in memory, the DATA indicator at the upper right of the
[FAX] key blinks. You can also use the forwarding function to have another fax machine print the received faxes.
(See "FORWARDING FUNCTION" on page 46.)
Note
In order to receive faxes, paper must be loaded in the paper tray. Load appropriate paper as explained in
"LOADING PAPER" in the "Operation manual (for general information and copier)". The difference between
vertically and horizontally oriented A4 and A4R paper (8-1/2" x 11" and 8-1/2" x 11"R paper), is automatically
adjusted at the time of reception, so there is no need to load paper in both orientations. However, when a fax
smaller than A4 (8-1/2" x 11") is received, the size of paper used to print the fax will differ depending on the
orientation (horizontal or vertical) of the original in the sending machine.
• If you wish to use A5 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") paper to receive faxes, load A5 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") paper in tray 1 of the
machine and set the paper size to A5 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2"). Only tray 1 can be set to A5 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") size.
• If you receive a fax that is larger than the loaded paper, the fax will be automatically reduced before printing, or
it will be divided and printed on two sheets of paper. (See "RECEIVED DATA PRINT CONDITION" on page
104.) Note that if the loaded paper is B5 or smaller, the width and length of the image may not allow the fax to
be printed.
• In fax mode, printing is not possible on 11" x 17", 8-1/2" x 14", 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" sizes. (Among INCH sizes, only
8-1/2" x 11" and 8-1/2" x 11"R can be used for printing.) (If your machine uses inch-based paper sizes, A3, B4,
B5, B5R, and A5 size paper cannot be used in fax mode. (Among AB sizes, only A4 and A4R can be used for
printing.))
• If the paper runs out while a fax is being printed, printing will automatically continue using the closest size of
paper in another tray.
• If you change the size of paper loaded in a tray, change the tray's paper size setting.
• Faxes cannot be printed correctly if the actual paper size is different from the paper size setting. Be sure to set
the tray's paper size setting to the same paper size as the paper loaded in the tray. For example, if you receive
an A3 (11" x 17") size fax when B4 (8-1/2" x 14") paper is loaded in the tray and the tray's paper size setting is
A3 (11" x 17"), the fax will be printed on B4 (8-1/2" x 14") paper and part of the image may be cut off If the
paper loaded in the tray is larger than the paper size setting, paper larger than the recognized fax size will be
used. (A message prompting you to check the tray's paper size setting will appear.)
• Received faxes cannot be printed on paper inserted in the bypass tray.

BASIC OPERATIONS
FAX PRINT HOLD FUNCTION
Faxes are normally printed as soon as they are received.
This function is used to hold received faxes in memory rather than printing them as they are received. Faxes held in
memory are printed manually all at once.
Settings required for fax print hold
If a fax is received when auto power shut-off mode has activated ("TURNING THE POWER ON AND OFF" in the
"Operation manual (for general information and copier)"), the machine returns to normal operation in order to print
the fax. For this reason, if faxes are received at regular intervals, auto power shut-off will repeatedly activate and
deactivate and less power will be conserved.
If you wish to maximize the benefit of auto power shut-off at night and other times when printing of received faxes is
not immediately necessary, enable fax print hold. When fax print hold is enabled, receiving faxes when auto power
shut-off has activated will not cause auto power shut-off to deactivate.
It is recommended that you enable and disable fax print hold as needed for your conditions of use; for example,
enable fax print hold during the night and disable it during the day.
Note
• When fax print hold is enabled and received faxes are held in memory, the DATA indicator above the [FAX]
key on the operation panel blinks and a message appears in the display. (When the received faxes are printed,
the indicator stops blinking and the message no longer appears.)
• If the remaining free memory reaches 0%, fax reception will no longer be possible. For this reason, it is
important to constantly make sure that sufficient free memory remains and frequently print received faxes.
The percentage of free memory remaining appears in the base screen of fax mode. (Page 10)

ADVANCED TRANSMISSION
METHODS
This chapter explains advanced features that are designed for specific purposes and circumstances. Please read
those sections that are of interest to you.
SENDING THE SAME DOCUMENT TO
MULTIPLE DESTINATIONS IN A SINGLE
OPERATION
(BROADCAST TRANSMISSION)
This feature is used to send a fax to multiple destinations in a single operation. The original to be transmitted is
scanned into memory and then successively transmitted to the selected destinations. This feature is convenient for
such purposes as distributing a report to company branches. Up to 200 destinations can be selected. When
transmission to all destinations has been completed, the document is automatically cleared from memory.
Note
• If you frequently use broadcasting to send faxes to the same group of destinations, it is convenient to program
those destinations into a group key. Group key dialling is an automatic dialling function whereby multiple
destinations (Rapid keys, Speed Dial numbers, and full fax numbers entered with the numeric keys) are
programmed into a Rapid key. The procedure for programming group keys is explained on page 62.
• When a group key is used to send a fax, the fax is broadcast (transmitted) to the destinations programmed in
the group key. For example, if five destinations are programmed in a group key and the key is pressed for a
broadcast transmission, the broadcast transmission will have five destinations.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION AT A
SPECIFIED TIME
(TIMER TRANSMISSION)
This feature enables you to set up a transmission or polling operation to be performed automatically at a specified
time up to a week in advance. This is convenient when you will be out of the office or for transmission at off-peak
nighttime rates. A combined total of 50 timer transmission and memory transmission jobs can be stored.
Note
• After a timer transmission is performed, the information (image, destination, etc.) is automatically cleared from
memory.
• To perform a timer transmission, the original must be scanned into memory. It is not possible to leave the
original in the SPF or on the document glass and have it scanned at the specified time of transmission.
• The date and time is set in the machine using the key operator programs. (See "DATE & TIME SET" on page 99.)
• Only one polling timer operation can be set up at a time. If you wish to set up multiple timer polling operations,
combine the machines to be polled into one serial polling operation with a timer setting (see "Serial polling" on

TRANSMISSION AND RECEPTION USING THE POLLING FUNCTION
The polling function allows your machine to call a fax machine that has a document ready for transmission and
initiate reception of the document. You can also perform the reverse operation: scan a document into the memory of
your machine so that another machine can call your machine and initiate reception of the document.
Calling the sending machine and asking the sending machine to fax a document is called "polling". Scanning a document into
memory and automatically sending it when the receiving machine calls and "polls" your machine is called "polling memory".
This function can only be used if the other machine is a Super G3 or G3 machine and supports the polling function.
For information on polling and polling memory using F-codes, see "HOW F-CODE POLLING MEMORY
WORKS" (page 50). Normal polling and memory polling are explained in this chapter.
Note
Polling
This function allows your machine to call another fax machine and initiate reception of a document in that machine. A timer setting can
also be specified to have the operation take place at night or at another specified time. (See "TIMER TRANSMISSION" on page 34.)

Group keys and the broadcast transmission function (page 32) can be used to successively poll multiple fax
machines in a single operation (this is called "serial polling"). Up to 200 machines can be polled.
In this case, the sequence of operations in the above diagram is successively repeated for each sending machine selected.

USING POLLING MEMORY
This function sends a document previously scanned into memory to a receiving machine when the receiving
machine calls and polls your machine. (If desired, you can restrict polling to fax machines whose fax number you
have programmed in your machine. See "Restricting polling access (polling security)" on page 41.) The machine has
"memory boxes", which are memory used for the regular polling memory function, F-code polling memory, F-code
confidential transmission, and F-code relay transmission (see "BOXES AND SUB-ADDRESSES/PASSCODES
REQUIRED FOR F-CODE TRANSMISSION" on page 48) The polling memory function explained here uses a
memory box called the "PUBLIC BOX".
Note
When using the polling memory function, do not set the reception mode to MANUAL. (See "SETTING THE
RECEPTION MODE" on page 61.)
Scanning a document into polling memory (the Public Box)
This section explains how to scan a document into the Public Box. If other documents have already been stored in

Restricting polling access (polling security)
If you wish to prevent unauthorised fax machines from polling your machine, enable the polling security function.
When this function is enabled, polling permission will only be granted if the fax number of the polling machine
(programmed in that machine as the sender's number) matches one of the fax numbers you have programmed in
your machine as passcode numbers. Up to 10 fax numbers can be programmed as passcode numbers.
To enable the polling security function and program passcode numbers, see "POLLING PASSCODE # MODE"
(page 107) in the key operator programs.
Note
• If you do not use the polling security function, the document will be sent to any fax machine that polls you.
• To use polling memory with polling security enabled, the sender's number of the polling machine must be
programmed in that machine and in your machine.

USING SETTINGS STORED AS A PROGRAM
This function allows you to store the steps of an operation, including the destination and scanning settings, into a

destination. Up to nine programs can be stored.
When storing a program, a name (maximum 36 letters) can be assigned to the program.
For information on storing, editing, and deleting programs, see "STORING, EDITING AND DELETING PROGRAMS" on page 72.
The following settings can be stored in a program:
(1) Transmission method
Normal transmission (page 18), broadcast transmission (page 32), polling (page 36), serial polling (page 38),
F-code transmission (page 55), F-code polling (page 53)
(2) Cover sheet / message (page 44)
(3) Resolution and exposure (page 15)
(4) Dual page scan (page 43)
(5) Transmission settings (page 23)
When storing a broadcast transmission or serial polling operation in a program, up to 200 destination fax numbers can be stored.
Note
• A program differs from a timer transmission (page 34) in that it is not cleared from memory after transmission
takes place. A program thus allows you to repeatedly perform the same type of transmission. Note, however,
that programs do not allow you to establish a timer setting for transmission.
• A setting that can be stored in a program cannot be changed at the time that a program is used for a
transmission even if the setting is not stored in the program.
• The only settings that can be selected when using a program are the original size, duplex scanning, and a timer setting.

TRANSMISSION USING
F-CODES
This chapter explains F-code transmission, which gives you a convenient means of performing advanced operations
such as relay broadcast transmission and confidential transmission. Please read those sections that are of interest
to you.
COMMUNICATION BETWEEN MACHINES
SUPPORTING F-CODES
This machine supports the "F-code" standard as established by the ITU-T*.
Operations such as relay broadcast transmission and confidential transmission previously could only be performed
with another Sharp fax machine; however, F-Code communication makes it possible to perform these operations
with fax machines of other manufacturers that support F-Code communication.
Before using the functions explained in this chapter, make sure that the other fax machine supports F-Code
communication and has the same functions as your machine. (Note that the other machine may use different names
for some functions.)
* The ITU-T is a United Nations organization that establishes communications standards. It is a department of the International
Telecommunication Union (ITU), which coordinates global telecommunications networks and services.
BOXES AND SUB-ADDRESSES/PASSCODES
REQUIRED FOR F-CODE TRANSMISSION
"Boxes" can be created in the memory of fax machines that support F-Code communication. These boxes are used
to store faxes received from other machines and documents to be transmitted when a polling request is received. Up
to 30 boxes can be created for a variety of purposes, and a name can be assigned to each box. A "sub-address"
that indicates the box's location in memory must be programmed, and if desired, a passcode can also be
programmed to control access to the box. (A sub-address must be programmed, however, a passcode can be
omitted.)

TRANSMISSION USING F-CODES
When communication occurs involving a box, the communication will only take place if the sub-address and
passcode that the other machine sends match the sub-address and passcode programmed in your machine for that
box. Therefore, to allow communication, you must inform the other party of the sub-address and passcode of the
box. Likewise, to send a fax to a box in another machine or use polling to retrieve a document from a box, you must
know the sub-address and passcode of that box. (Note that assigning names simply makes it easier to manage
boxes; you do not need to inform the other party of a box name.) However, you must inform the other party of the
sub-address and passcode for a box.
This machine uses the term "sub-address" for the location of the memory box and the term "passcode" for the
password that allows communication; however, other fax machines of other manufacturers may use different terms.
When asking the other party for a sub-address and passcode, you may find it useful to refer to the 3-character
alphabetical terminology used by the ITU-T.

CREATING A BOX FOR F-CODE TRANSMISSION
F-code operations that use boxes include F-code polling memory (page 50), F-code confidential transmission (page
55), and F-code relay broadcast transmission (page 58).
A box is created by programming a name for the box, and up to 10 boxes for each operation type can be created.
The information programmed in each box varies slightly depending on the type of operation. For
information on programming, editing, and deleting boxes, see "PROGRAMMING, EDITING, AND DELETING
F-CODE MEMORY BOXES" on page 74.
After you have programmed a box, inform the other party of the box's sub-address and passcode.
Note
If you attempt to create a box when 10 boxes have already been created for that operation type, a
message will appear and you will not be able to create the box. Delete any unused boxes and then
create the new box. (See "PROGRAMMING, EDITING, AND DELETING F-CODE MEMORY BOXES" on
page 74.)

F-CODE POLLING MEMORY
F-code polling memory allows one fax machine to call another fax machine and initiate reception of a document that
has been scanned into the other machine's F-code polling memory box. Calling another machine and initiating
reception is called F-code polling, and scanning a document into a memory box for another machine to retrieve by
polling is called F-code polling memory. This function is approximately the same as regular polling (page 36);
however, it uses an F-code polling memory box and is always protected by means of the sub-address and
passcode.

Note

• To perform polling or polling memory transmission without using an F-code, see page 36.
• To create an F-code polling memory box, see "PROGRAMMING F-CODE PUBLIC (POLLING MEMORY)
BOXES" (page 77) and "Scanning a document into polling memory (the Public Box)" (page 39).
• Unlike regular polling, the other machine's fax number is not used as a passcode for F-code polling memory.
The sub-address and passcode of the polling memory box are always used for polling security.
• The receiving machine bears the expense (phone charges) of the transmission.
TRANSMISSION USING F-CODES
USING F-CODE POLLING MEMORY
In order for another machine to retrieve a document from your machine, you must first scan the document into the
F-code polling memory box.
You can check the document in the memory polling box by printing it out.
(See "Checking and clearing document data in a box" on page 52.)
Note
When using F-code polling memory, do not set the reception mode to manual reception.
Scanning a document into an F-code polling memory box
The procedure for scanning a document into an F-code polling memory box (page 77) is in general the same as

F-CODE RELAY BROADCAST
TRANSMISSION
The F-Code relay broadcast function allows the machine to act as a relay machine for a broadcast transmission. The
end receiving machines are stored in the machine's F-Code relay memory box, and when the machine receives a
relay request from another F-Code machine, it will relay the fax to all of the stored end receiving machines.
The relay machine and the originating machine that requests the relay transmission must both support F-codes; however,
the end receiving machines programmed in the F-code relay broadcast memory box do not need to support F-codes.

Receiving machine A
Receiving machine B
Receiving machine C
The machine that originally sends the document is called the relay request machine, and the machine that has a
memory box containing the end receiving machines and which relays the received document to those machines is
called the relay machine.
The relay machine also prints the document sent by the relay request machine.
For example, corporate headquarters in Seattle wants to send the same document to branch offices in San Francisco,
Oakland, Berkeley, and San Jose. If the San Francisco office creates a relay broadcast memory box and programs the
Oakland, Berkeley, and San Jose offices as end receiving destinations, the overall phone charges will be lower than if
the Seattle office uses the regular broadcast transmission function (page 32). If used together with a timer setting
(page 34) to take advantage of off-peak rates, the cost of transmission can be further reduced.
Transmission by the relay machine is called "F-code relay broadcast transmission", and transmission from the relay
request machine to the relay machine is called "relay request transmission".
Note
58
• This machine does not support Sharp's previous relay broadcast function, which uses the programmed
sender's number and relay ID code.
• Up to 10 F-code relay groups (boxes) can be programmed. A name (up to 36 characters long) and the end
receiving machines are programmed in each box. A combined total of 120 end receiving machines can be
programmed in all F-code relay groups (boxes). (If 120 end receiving machines are programmed in one
F-code relay group, no end receiving machines can be programmed in other F-code relay groups.)
• End receiving machines can be stored using the numeric keys, Rapid keys, Speed Dial numbers, and group
keys. Auto-dial destinations that already have a sub-address and passcode programmed cannot be used.
• Only one relay group can be specified when making a relay request. Multiple relay groups cannot be
simultaneously selected.
• To create an F-code relay group (box) and store, edit, and delete end receiving machines, see pages 74, 76
and 79. When creating a box, a passcode (SID) can be omitted.
• The relay request machine only bears the expense of sending the document to the relay machine. The relay
machine bears the expense of sending the document to each of the end receiving machines.
TRANSMISSION USING F-CODES
USING THE F-CODE RELAY BROADCAST FUNCTION
(your machine is the relay machine)
When a document is received from a relay request machine, the F-code relay broadcast function transmits the
document to the end receiving machines using a memory box only if the sub-address and passcode sent by the
relay request machine are correct.
To create, edit, or delete an F-code relay group (box), see pages 74, 76 and 79.
A document received from a relay request machine is initially stored in the box of your machine. Your machine (the
relay machine) also prints the document, thus the document is first stored as a print job and then as transmission
jobs to each of the programmed end receiving machines. The document data is automatically cleared after
transmission to all end receiving machines is completed.
Transmission to the end receiving machines cannot be stopped or cancelled.
USING THE F-CODE RELAY REQUEST FUNCTION
(your machine requests a relay broadcast)
Ask the operator of the other F-code machine (the relay machine) to create an F-code relay group (box) that
contains the end receiving machines to which you wish to send a fax, and ask for the sub-address (SUB) and
passcode (SID) of that box.
When you dial the relay machine to send the fax, enter the sub-address and passcode after the fax number. The fax
will be stored in the relay machine's memory box, and the relay machine will call each of the programmed end
receiving machines and relay the fax to those machines. (If a passcode (SID) is not programmed in the box , enter
only the sub-address when dialling.)
To dial the relay machine, use the same procedure as in "F-CODE TRANSMISSION (F-CODE CONFIDENTIAL
TRANSMISSION)" (page 55).

CONVENIENT METHODS OF
USE
This chapter explains convenient functions that can be used when sending a fax, connecting an extension phone,
and other features that expand the scope of use of the fax machine. Please read those sections that are of interest
to you.
CONNECTING AN EXTENSION PHONE
You can connect a telephone to the machine and use it as an extension phone to make and receive calls like any
normal phone. Fax reception can also be activated from an extension phone connected to the machine. (Remote
operation)
Note
If you connect a combination telephone/answering machine to the machine, you will not be able to use the
answering machine function.
USING AN EXTENSION PHONE
Using an extension phone for voice calls
An extension phone connected to the machine can be used to place and receive voice calls just like a normal phone.
Note
• If the fax reception mode is set to auto reception, you must lift the phone to answer a call before the machine
automatically begins reception. The machine is initially set to answer calls on two rings. The number of rings
can be changed to any number from 0 to 9 in the key operator programs. (See "#OF RINGS AT. RX" on page
104.)
• If you cannot hear a dial tone when you pick up the extension phone, the machine is sending or receiving a fax.
Replace the phone.
Activating fax transmission
Place the original on document glass or in the SPF, adjust the original size, resolution, and exposure settings as
needed, and then follow the steps below.

CONVENIENT METHODS OF USE
SETTING THE RECEPTION MODE
The machine normally receives faxes automatically after ringing; however, when an extension phone is connected,
you can set the reception mode to MANUAL. This will allow you to talk to the other party first and then receive a fax.
This is convenient when you only have one telephone line and receive more voice calls than faxes. You must
answer all calls on the extension phone, and activate fax reception after you verify that a call is a fax transmission.

This chapter explains the procedures for programming auto dial keys (Rapid keys, Speed Dial numbers, and group
keys), programs, and F-code operations, and how to print out lists of programmed information.
PROGRAMMING
Auto dial numbers (Rapid keys, Speed Dial numbers, and group keys), programs, and F-code operations are stored
and edited at the operation panel of the machine. This chapter explains how to use the operation panel for these
procedures.
STORING, EDITING, AND DELETING
AUTO DIAL NUMBERS AND PROGRAMS
This section explains the procedures for storing, editing, and deleting auto-dial numbers (Rapid keys, Speed Dial
numbers, and group keys) and programs, which simplify the transmission procedure. To use Rapid keys, Speed Dial
numbers, and group keys, see "TRANSMISSION BY AUTO-DIALLING (RAPID DIALLING AND GROUP
DIALLING)" on page 20. To use a program, see "USING A PROGRAM" on page 45.
A combined total of 50 Rapid keys and group keys can be stored, 300 Speed Dial numbers, and 9 programs can be
stored. If you attempt to store more than this, a warning message will appear. In this case, delete any auto-dial
numbers or programs that are no longer needed (see page 69 to delete Rapid keys and Speed Dial numbers, page
71 to delete group keys, and page 73 to delete programs), and then store the new auto-dial number or program.

TROUBLESHOOTING
This chapter contains information to help you make efficient use of the fax features of the machine, including
solutions to common problems.
WHEN A TRANSACTION REPORT IS PRINTED
The machine has been set to automatically print a transaction report to notify you of the result when a transmission
is not successful or when the Broadcast transmission function is used.
When transmission is not successful and a transaction report similar to the following is printed,
"FOLLOWING DATA CANNOT BE SENT. PLEASE HAND THIS REPORT TO XXX.", read the report and take
appropriate action.
The transaction report is set at the factory to print at the times indicated in grey
below, however, the times at which
the report is printed can be changed in the key operator programs. (See "LIST SETTING - PRINT SELECTION" on page 95.)
• Normal transmission: ALWAYS PRINTS / ERROR ONLY /NEVER PRINTS
• Broadcast transmission: ALWAYS PRINTS /ERROR ONLY/NEVER PRINTS
• Original image print setting*: ALWAYS PRINTS / ERROR ONLY /NEVER PRINTS
• Reception: ALWAYS PRINTS /ERROR ONLY/ NEVER PRINTS
• Confidential reception: ALWAYS PRINTS /NEVER PRINTS
The Transaction Report shows the date of transmission, the time transmission began, the other party's name, the
duration of the operation, the number of pages, the type of transmission, the result, the department, and other
information.
* You can select whether or not part of the transmitted original is printed with transaction reports that are printed for normal

VIEWING THE COMMUNICATION ACTIVITY
REPORT AT REGULAR INTERVALS
(Communication activity report)
Your machine keeps a record of the most recent 50 transactions (both transmissions and receptions) that were
performed. The record includes the date of the transaction, the other party's name, the duration, and result. You can
have the report automatically printed when the number of transactions exceeds 50, or at a specified time. This
allows you to check the machine's activity at regular intervals.
The machine is initially set (factory default setting) to not print the report. To have the report printed, change the
setting in the key operator programs. (See "LIST SETTING - AUTO LISTING" on page 95.)
Note
• Refer to the table on "WHEN A TRANSACTION REPORT IS PRINTED" (page 86) for the notes that appear in
the TYPE/NOTE column.
• The activity report can also be printed out on demand. (See "PRINTING LISTS OF PROGRAMMED
INFORMATION, SETTINGS, AND COMMUNICATION ACTIVITY" on page 81.)

KEY OPERATOR PROGRAMS
The key operator programs are used by the key operator (administrator of the machine) to customize certain
features of the machine to better meet the needs of users.
This section explains key operator programs for the fax features of the machine. For key operator programs that are
for the copy function, print function, and network scanner function, see the respective manuals for those functions.
For key operator programs for general use of the machine, see the "Key operator's guide" in the "Operation manual
(for general information and copier)".
To use the key operator programs, the key operator code must be entered.
For the initial key operator code set at the factory, see "KEY OPERATOR CODE NUMBER: FACTORY SETTING"
in the "Operation manual (for general information and copier)."

fax reception ends and another begins.
• Enable this function before receiving faxes. The
function remains enabled until you disable it.
• When this function is used, less space is available

BEFORE USING THE NETWORK
SCANNER FUNCTION
ABOUT THE NETWORK SCANNER
FUNCTION
When the network expansion kit is installed in the machine, a document or photo can be scanned into an image file
and sent over a network or the Internet to a file server, e-mail destination, or your own computer.
You can select from the following transmission methods as the destination where you wish to send the scanned
image, depending on where you wish to send the scanned image data.
1. The scanned image can be sent to a memory
storage device on a network (a designated
directory on an FTP server). (This is called
"Scan to FTP" in this manual.)
When sending a scanned image to an FTP
server, an e-mail message can also be sent to
a preset e-mail address to inform the recipient
of the location of the scanned image data. (This
is called "Scan to FTP (Hyperlink)" in this
manual.)
2. A scanned image can be sent to a computer
connected to the same network as the
machine. (This is called "Scan to Desktop" in
this manual.)
*Before Scan to Desktop can be performed, the
software in the CD-ROM that accompanies the
network expansion kit (AR-NB3) must be
installed. For the procedure for installing the
software, see the "Sharpdesk installation
guide".
3. The scanned image can be sent to an e-mail
recipient. (This is called "Scan to E-mail" in
this manual.)

Storing destinations for Scan to Desktop
The destination for Scan to Desktop is stored by the Sharp Network Scanner Tool Setup Wizard when "Network
Scanner Tool" is installed in your computer. For this reason, there is no need to store the Scan to Desktop
destination in the Web page. (The Network Scanner Tool is on the "Sharpdesk" CD-ROM that accompanies the
Network Expansion Kit.)
For information on Scan to Desktop system requirements, installing the Network Scanner Tool, and storing
the destination, see the "Sharpdesk installation guide" that accompanies the network expansion kit.
Normally your computer is stored as the destination by the method indicated above.
The following page for storing Scan to Desktop destination information appears when [Destination] is selected in the
menu frame, followed by [Desktop]. This page is used mainly by the system administrator in the following circumstance.

HOW TO USE THE NETWORK
SCANNER FUNCTION
This chapter explains how to use the network scanner function at the operation panel of the machine after the
settings have been configured in the Web page. The network scanner function is used to convert paper-based
information such as a photo or document into image data for transmission over a corporate network (intranet) or the
Internet to an FTP server or computer. When transmitting an image using the network scanner function, the
destination is specified by selecting a previously stored destination at the operation panel.
There are three methods for transmitting images:
1.The scanned image can be sent to a designated directory on an FTP server. (Scan to FTP)
2.The scanned image can be sent to a computer desktop on the network. (Scan to Desktop)
3.The scanned image can be sent to an e-mail recipient. (Scan to E-mail)
Note
Before Scan to Desktop can be performed, the software in the CD-ROM that accompanied the network
expansion kit (AR-NB3) must be installed. (For the procedure for installing the software, see the "Sharpdesk
installation guide".)

• Canceling transmission
To cancel the transmission while "Reading" appears or before the
key is pressed, press the [C] or [CA] key.
• If the power is turned off or a power failure occurs while a document is being scanned in the SPF, the machine
will stop and a document misfeed will occur. After the power is restored, remove the misfed original as
explained in "REMOVING MISFEEDS" in "2. TROUBLESHOOTING AND MAINTENANCE" in the "Operation
manual (for general information and copier)".
• When performing a Scan to E-mail transmission, note the following points:
Be careful not to send image data files that are too large. Your mail server's system administrator may have placed a limit
on the amount of data that can be sent in one e-mail transmission. If this limit is exceeded, the e-mail will not be delivered
to the recipient. Even if there is no limit and your e-mail is successfully delivered, a large data file may take a long time to
be received and place a heavy burden on the recipient's network, depending on the recipient's network (Internet)
environment. If large image data files are repeatedly sent, the resulting burden on the network may slow down the speed of
other, unrelated data transmissions and in some cases, may even cause the mail server or network to go down. In cases
where you need to send a large file or multiple images, try lowering the resolution or reducing the scanned original size.

Resolution
• The default resolution setting is 150 dpi.
For typical text documents, a resolution of
200 dpi or 300 dpi produces sufficiently
legible image data. (A resolution of 200
dpi corresponds to the generally used
"FINE" in fax mode.
For this reason, the 600 dpi setting should
only be used in cases where high-clarity
image reproduction is required, such as
an original that includes photographs or
illustrations.
• When an original is scanned at the maximum
resolution (600 dpi), the amount of memory
available, the original size, the color mode,
and other setting conditions may cause the
resolution to change. For information on the
setting conditions, see "MAXIMUM
RESOLUTION" (page 35).
SELECTING THE FILE FORMAT
After selecting scan mode and placing the original (steps 1 to 3 on page 20), perform the procedure below.

TROUBLESHOOTING
TROUBLESHOOTING
If a problem or question arises, try to solve the situation using the following information before contacting your
authorized SHARP dealer.
Image transmission problems are explained here.
For image scanning problems, see the "Operation manual (for general information and copier)".
Problem
Cause and solution
The scanned image is clipped.
The original scan size setting is smaller than the actual original
size.
→ Set the actual original size (page 26).
If you have intentionally set a smaller size than the actual original size,
place the original taking into account the guides for the set original
size. For example, if the actual size is 8-1/2" x 11" (A4) and you
selected 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (B5) for the size setting, place the original so
that the part that you wish to scan is within the 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (B5) area
indicated by the guides at the far left corner of the document glass.
The received image
cannot be opened.
The viewer program used by the recipient does not support the
format of the received image data.
→ Try selecting a different file type (TIFF, JPEG, or PDF) and/or a different
compression format (None, G3, or G4) for the image data.
Otherwise, have the recipient use Sharpdesk or a viewer program that
supports the above combinations of file types and compression formats.
data
When the same file name is
used for two successive Scan
to FTP transmissions, the
second file is not sent.
The recipient does not receive
a transmitted data.
The first file may still remain in the cache of the file server client. Disable
use of the cache in the client software.
There is a mistake in the stored destination information or the
wrong destination was selected.
→ Make sure that the correct destination information is stored. If there is a
mistake, correct it. (Page 10)
* If delivery by e-mail (Scan to E-mail) is unsuccessful, an error
message such as "Undelivered Message" may be sent to the
designated administrator's e-mail address. This information may help
you determine the cause of the problem.
Check the Web page to see if a limit has been set for the size of image
files sent using Scan to E-mail (the factory default setting is "Unlimited").
A limit can be set from 1 MB to 10 MB. Consult the administrator of the
Web page to select a suitable limit. (Page 12)
The recipient does not receive
data sent by e-mail (Scan to
E-mail).
The amount of data that can be sent in one e-mail transmission is
sometimes limited by the administrator of the mail server. Even if the file
size is within the limit explained above, if it exceeds the limit set by the
administrator of the mail server, the file will not be delivered to the
recipient.
Decrease the amount of data sent in the e-mail transmission (reduce the
number of pages scanned). (Ask your mail server administrator what the
data limit is for one e-mail transmission.)

When there is a large amount of image information, the data file is also

MAXIMUM RESOLUTION
When scanning takes place with the resolution set to the maximum resolution (600 dpi), the resolution may change
depending on the amount of memory available, the original size, the color mode, and other scanning conditions. The
table below shows the relation between the possible scanning area and the scanning conditions. (Note that the following
examples are for standard memory in the machine and 128 MB or more of memory in the network expansion kit.)

The scanned image was not sent because a connection to the server could not be
established. Make sure that the SMTP server settings or Scan to FTP destination
settings in the Web page are correct.
The procedure for configuring the SMTP server is explained in "VARIOUS SERVER
SETTINGS", and the procedure for editing Scan to FTP destination information is
explained in "Editing and deleting programmed transmission destinations". For
information on the settings to be entered, see Help in the Web page.
CE-03
The scanned image was not sent because the server was busy or there was too much
traffic on line. Wait briefly and then try again.

TROUBLESHOOTING
IMPORTANT POINTS WHEN USING SCAN TO E-MAIL
Be careful not to send image data files that are too large.
Your mail server's system administrator may have placed a limit on the amount of data that can be sent in one e-mail
transmission. If this limit is exceeded, the e-mail will not be delivered to the recipient. Even if there is no limit and
your e-mail is successfully delivered, a large data file may take a long time to be received and place a heavy burden
on the recipient's network, depending on the recipient's network (Internet) connection environment.
If large image data files are repeatedly sent, the resulting burden on the network may slow down the speed of other,
unrelated data transmissions and in some cases, may even cause the mail server or network to go down.
The following table shows the approximate file sizes when the 8-1/2" x 11" (A4) size originals (one page each)
shown below are scanned.

Approx. 1440 KB (approx. 1.44 MB)
* All sizes are for image files created in TIFF G4 format.
If multiple images are scanned, the file size will be approximately (Size of each image as indicated above) x (Number of images
scanned).
Caution
The scan resolution will vary depending on the scanning area and how much memory in the machine is free.
During network scanning, the resolution may change automatically because enhancement is not performed. To
scan an A3 original in color at 600 dpi without enhancement, the 256 MB optional memory on the dual function
board and the 128 MB additional memory on the network expansion kit are required as a minimum.
Although the actual limitation depends on your network environment, a general guideline for the maximum file size
for Scan to E-mail is 2000 KB (2 MB). In cases where you need to send multiple images in one transmission, try
such measures as lowering the resolution mode.
Original image samples
The original images shown below are samples to help you understand the above explanations. Note that these
images are smaller than the actual originals (the actual originals are 8-1/2" x 11" or A4).

The print job is delivered to the output tray, with
the position of the paper offset slightly from the
previous job (offset function).
Note
When the job separator tray is
installed
The output tray can be selected when
selecting print settings at the time of
printing. To change the tray selection, select
the desired tray in "Output" in the [Paper]
tab of the printer driver setup screen.
IF THE TRAY RUNS OUT OF PAPER DURING PRINTING
Add paper to the tray that ran out or to the bypass tray. If you add paper to the bypass tray, press the [PRINT] key on
the machine to switch to printer mode and select "BYPASS-TRAY". Printing will resume. Note that if the "AUTO
TRAY SWITCHING" setting is selected in the "PAPER SIZE SET" (accessed by pressing the [SPECIAL
FUNCTION] key) and there is the same size of paper in another tray, the machine will automatically switch to the
other tray and continue printing.
PAUSING A PRINT JOB
To pause a print job, press the [PRINT] key on the machine to switch to printer mode and then select "OFFLINE"
with the [ ] key. The machine pauses the print job and then goes offline.
• To cancel a print job, press the [C] key ( ).
• To resume printing, select "ONLINE" with the [ ] key.
WHEN "PAPER SOURCE" IS SET TO [AUTO SELECT]
If "Paper Source" is set to [Auto Select] in the [Paper] tab of the printer driver setup screen and the correct size of
paper for a print job is not loaded in the machine, the printing procedure will vary depending on the "FORCED
OUTPUT OF PRINT" setting (page 31) in the key operator programs.
When "FORCED OUTPUT OF PRINT" is disabled
Add paper to the bypass tray, press the [PRINT] key on the machine to switch to printer mode, and select
"BYPASS-TRAY". Printing will resume.
When "FORCED OUTPUT OF PRINT" is enabled
The closest size of paper in a tray other than the bypass tray will be used for printing.
Note
If the print image is in a different orientation than the paper, the print image will be automatically rotated 90
degrees to enable correct printing on the paper. (Other than the bypass tray)
HOW [BYPASS TRAY] AND [BYPASS MANUAL]
DIFFER IN THE "PAPER SOURCE" SETTINGS
There are two bypass tray settings in "Paper Source" in the [Paper] tab of the printer driver setup screen:
• When [Bypass Tray] is selected, the print job is automatically printed on the paper in the bypass tray.
• When [Bypass Manual] is selected, the print job is not printed until paper is inserted into the bypass tray. If paper
is already in the bypass tray, remove the paper and then re-insert it to begin printing.
4
PRINTING FROM WINDOWS
AUDITING MODE
When "AUDITING MODE" is enabled in the key operator programs, a 5-digit account number must be entered in the
printer driver setup screen in order to print. Account numbers are stored in the key operator programs. (See the "Key
operator's guide".)
To open the account number entry screen, click the [Job Control] button in the [Main] tab of the printer driver setup
screen.
1
Click the checkbox on the left side of "Account Number" so that a checkmark appears, enter your 5-digit account
number, and click the [OK] button.
Note
Caution
When the [Auto Job Control review] checkbox is clicked, the account number confirmation screen always
appears before printing starts.
• If "CANCEL JOBS OF INVALID ACCOUNTS" is enabled in the key operator programs and printing is
attempted without entering an account number or an invalid account number is entered, printing will not take
place. To allow printing without the entry of a valid account number, disable "CANCEL JOBS OF INVALID
ACCOUNTS". In this case, the number of pages printed is added to the "OTHERS" count.
• When the PPD file* is used in Windows, auditing mode cannot be used in the printer function. For this reason,
do not enable "CANCEL JOBS OF INVALID ACCOUNTS" in the key operator programs as this will prevent
printing. Printed pages will be added to the "OTHERS" count. (See the "Key operator's guide".)
* The PPD file enables the machine to print using the standard PS driver of the operating system.

PRINTER UTILITIES (WINDOWS)
This chapter explains printer utilities that are used to manage and monitor the network printer.
PRINTER UTILITIES
The "Software CD-ROM (1)" included in the network expansion kit contains the following two printer utilities.
Printer Status Monitor
(for general users)
Printer Administration Utility (for
the administrator)
This allows the user to check on the computer screen
whether or not the machine is able to print.
It provides information on error states such as paper
misfeeds and shows the configuration of the machine
(number of trays, etc.) by means of illustrations.
Available paper sizes and paper remaining are also
indicated.
This allows the administrator to check information on
supplies and error states of the machine and other
SHARP printers (compatible with the Printer
Administration Utility) that are connected to the
network. Settings can also be changed via the utility.
Note
• In order to use the Printer Status Monitor and Printer Administration Utility, the machine must be connected to
a network.
• To install the Printer Status Monitor and Printer Administration Utility, see "2. INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE

A notice page is printed
If you find that a notice page has been printed at the end of a print job, the print data received from the computer has
not been printed as specified. Fix the problem as explained below and then try printing again.
What to do when a notice page is printed
****************************************************
Notice Page
****************************************************
The IMC memory full error had occurred,
a normal output was not able to be executed.
Please refer to the operation manual for
the solution method.
The above notice page is printed when a print job
containing more data than can be held in the memory
of the dual function board memory is sent. If you
printed using the printer driver, remove the checkmark
from [ROPM] in the [Configuration] tab of the printer
driver setup screen to disable the ROPM function. If
you need to use the ROPM function, select a lower
resolution setting in the printer driver or increase the
amount of memory.
Note
• The Notice Page can be set to not print
out in "NOTICE PAGE" (page 31) of the
key operator programs.
When the dual function board is
installed
• The dual function board memory is used
to temporarily hold print data when the
ROPM function is used. This memory is
also used to temporarily store original
image data during a copy job. The
proportion of memory allocated to the
printer function can be changed in the key
operator programs. (See the "Key
operator's guide".) The memory can be
increased by adding the optional memory
modules. For details, contact your SHARP
dealer.
When the dual function board is not
installed
• A notice page such as "The incorrect
driver is chosen, a normal output was not
able to be executed....." will be printed if
you attempt to print using the print driver
for the dual function board. Install the
standard print driver as explained in "1.
INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE (THAT
ACCOMPANIES THE MACHINE)" in the
"Software setup guide" and select the
standard driver when printing.
