ENERGY SAVE FUNCTIONS
This product has the following two energy save functions that conform to the Energy Star guidelines to help conserve
natural resources and reduce environmental pollution.
Preheat Mode (low power mode)
Preheat mode automatically lowers the temperature of the fusing unit and thereby reduces power consumption if the
machine remains in the standby state for the interval of time set in "Preheat Mode Setting" in the system settings
(administrator). This keeps the fusing unit at a lower temperature and reduces power consumption while the machine is
on standby.
The machine automatically wakes up and returns to normal operation when a print job is received, a key is pressed on the
operation panel, or an original is placed.
Auto power shut-off mode (Sleep mode)
Auto power shut-off mode automatically shuts off power to the display and the fusing unit if the machine remains in the
standby state for the interval of time set in "Auto Power Shut-Off Timer" in the system settings (administrator). This
mode provides the lowest level of power consumption. Considerably more power is saved than in preheat mode,
however, the wakeup time is longer. This mode can be disabled in the system settings (administrator).
The machine automatically wakes up and resumes normal operation when a print job is received or when the blinking

printer or copier.
• Perforated paper
• Various types of plain paper and special media are sold. Some types cannot be used with the machine. Contact your
dealer or nearest SHARP Service Department for advice on using these types of paper.
• The image quality and toner fusibility of paper may change due to ambient conditions, operating conditions, and paper
characteristics, resulting in image quality inferior to that of SHARP standard paper. Contact your dealer or nearest SHARP
Service Department for advice on using these types of paper.
• The use of non-recommended or prohibited paper may result in skewed feeding, misfeeds, poor toner fusing (the toner
does not adhere to the paper well and can be rubbed off), or machine failure.
• The use of non-recommended paper may result in misfeeds or poor image quality. Before using non-recommended paper,
check if printing can be performed properly.
Tray during paper feeding
Do not pull out a tray while paper is being fed from the tray. This will cause a paper misfeed.
Tray 1 and tray 2 are joined together, so do not pull out the trays while paper is feeding from either tray.
Identifying the tray that is being used to feed paper
(1) While paper is feeding, the job status display of the system bar on the touch panel screen will show the number of
the tray that is being used to feed paper. However, this will not appear when the base screen of image send mode
appears. To show the tray number in this case, change to the base screen of a different mode, or change to the job
status screen (page 16) and select the [Print Job] tab in the mode select tabs.
(2) During output in copy mode, the tray being used to feed paper also appears in green in the paper size display in the
base screen of copy mode on the touch panel.

IMPORTANT POINTS WHEN USING THE BYPASS TRAY
• When using plain paper other than SHARP standard paper or special media other than SHARP-recommended
transparency film, or when printing on the reverse side of previously used paper, the paper must be loaded one sheet
at a time. Loading more than one sheet at a time will cause misfeeds.
• Before loading paper, straighten any curling in the paper.
• When adding paper, remove any paper remaining in the bypass tray, combine it with the paper to be added, and
reload as a single stack. If paper is added without removing the remaining paper, a misfeed may result.
Inserting paper
Place paper that is 7-1/4" x 10-1/2" (A5) or smaller in the horizontal orientation.
Inserting tab paper
To print on tab paper, load tab paper in the bypass tray with the print side face up.
On the MX-MFX2 bypass tray, the special guide is attached to the bottom edge bypass guide. The special guide is stored
under the front cover of the large capacity trays. After using the guide, remove it and replace it in its storage location.

• Use only tab paper that is made of paper. Tab paper made of a material other than paper (film, etc.) cannot be used.
• To print on the tabs of tab paper...
In copy mode, use "Tab Copy" in the special modes. In print mode, use the tab print function. For more information on
these functions, see the Copier Guide and the Printer Guide.
Inserting transparency film
Horizontally
Vertically
• Use SHARP-recommended transparency film. When inserting transparency film
in the bypass tray, the rounded corner should be at the far left when the film is
oriented horizontally, or at the far right when the film is oriented vertically. Place
the film face up.
• When loading multiple sheets of transparency film in the bypass tray, be sure to
fan the sheets several times before loading.
• When printing on transparency film, be sure to remove each sheet as it exits the
machine. Allowing sheets to stack in the output tray may result in curling.

• Originals of different sizes can be placed together in the automatic document feeder. In this case, select "Mixed Size
Original" in the special modes of the mode you are using. For the procedures for inserting mixed size originals and the
sizes that can be inserted, see the Copier Guide and the Image Send Guide.
• Before inserting originals into the document feeder tray, be sure to remove any staples or paper clips.
• If originals have damp spots due to correction fluid, ink or pasteup glue, wait until the originals are dry before making
copies. Otherwise the interior of the document feeder or the document glass may be soiled.
• Do not use the following originals. Incorrect original size detection, original misfeeds, and smudges may result.
Transparency film, tracing paper, carbon paper, thermal paper or originals printed with thermal transfer ink ribbon should
not be fed through the document feeder. Originals to be fed through the feeder should not be damaged, crumpled, folded,
loosely pasted together, or have cut-out holes. Originals with multiple punched holes other than two-hole or three-hole
punched paper may not feed correctly.
• When using originals with two or three holes, place them so that
the punched edge is at a position away from the feed slot of the
document feeder tray.

Loading paper
Follow the steps below to load paper in the inserter.
Adjust the guide to the size of the paper
you are loading.
1
Squeeze the guide lock lever to adjust the guide. When you
have finished moving the guide, release the lever.
When loading paper larger than 8-1/2" x 11"R or A4, be sure to
pull the tray extension all the way out. If the extension is not
pulled all the way out, the size of the loaded paper will not be
detected correctly.
Insert the paper along the guide as far as
it will go into the feeder.
2
Up to 200 sheets each can be loaded on the upper tray and the
lower tray.
The paper size is automatically detected. If the paper size is not
detected or you are using a special paper size, or if you need to
change the paper type, change the paper settings in "PAPER
TRAY SETTINGS" (page 80) in the system settings.
When loading paper, make sure that the guide is correctly adjusted to the width of the paper.
If there is a gap between the paper and the guide, or if the paper is bowed because the guide is adjusted to a narrower
width than the paper, a misfeed, skewed paper feeding, or creases in the paper may result.
63
Paper loading orientation
When loading paper in the inserter, the front side of the paper should face up
When inserting covers or inserts in a copy job, load the paper in the same orientation as the originals.

SHARP OSA
Sharp OSA (Open Systems Architecture) is an architecture that enables external applications to be directly connected to
a digital multifunction machine over a network.
When a digital multifunction machine that supports Sharp OSA is used, the operation panel controls and functions of the
machine such as scan send can be linked to an external application.
There are two types of external applications: "standard application" and "external account application". An "external
account application" is used for centralized account management of a multifunction machine on a network. A "standard
application" refers to all other applications.
APPLICATION COMMUNICATION MODULE (MX-AMX2)
The application communication module is required to use a "standard application" on the machine.
When a previously registered standard application is selected in the Web pages of the machine, the machine retrieves
the operation screen from the registered URL. Control of the operation screen is performed by the standard application,
and Scan to FTP can be executed.
Standard application setup
To enable a general application in the Web pages of the machine, click [Application Settings] in the administrator menu
frame, and then [External Applications Settings] and [Standard Applications]. Configure settings for the standard
application in the screen that appears.
Selecting a standard application
The procedure for selecting a general application that has been enabled in the Web pages of the machine is explained
below.

The mode select key cannot be used during a Scan to FTP transmission.
EXTERNAL ACCOUNT MODULE (MX-AMX3)
The external account module is required to use a "external account application" on the machine.
An external account application can be used in "external authentication mode" or "external count mode". When external
authentication mode is used, the login screen is retrieved from the application when the machine is started. When a job
ends, a job notification screen is sent to the application to enable counts to be kept for each authenticated user.
When "external count mode" is used, the login screen is not displayed when the machine is started. Only a job result
notification is sent to the application. User authentication by the external account application cannot be used, however,
the external account application can be used in combination with the internal account function.
External account application setup
To enable an external account application in the Web pages of the machine, click [Application Settings] in the
administrator menu frame, and then [External Applications Settings] and [External Accounting]. Configure settings for
the external account application in the screen that appears. To make the settings in the Web page take effect, restart the
machine.
Operation in external account mode
The two modes for using an external account application operate as explained below.
External authentication mode
When the [Enable Authentication by External Server] checkbox is selected in "External Account Setting" of "Sharp OSA
Settings" in the system settings (administrator), the machine enters external authentication mode. When the machine is
powered on in external authentication mode, the machine accesses the external account application and displays the
login screen. The login screen also appears when the [Call] key is touched to run a job in the job status complete screen.
(The login screen does not appear if the user has already logged in by the normal method.)
The [JOB STATUS] key can be pressed while the login screen appears to show the job status screen. To return to the
previous state, press the mode select key.
• The user control function of the machine cannot be used in external authentication mode.
However, "User Registration", "User Count Display", "User Count Reset", "User Information Print", and "The Number of
User Name Displayed Setting" can be used.
• The mode select key cannot be used while the login screen appears.
72
If login fails
If the login screen fails to appear or the application does not operate correctly, the machine may also stop operating
correctly. In this event, it is recommended that you quit external account mode from the Web pages of the machine. For
more information, see [Help] in the Web pages.
If it is necessary to forcibly terminate external account mode using the operation panel of the machine, follow the steps
below.
Press the [SYSTEM SETTINGS] key and change "External Account Setting" in the system settings (administrator). After
changing the setting, restart the machine.
External count mode
When only the [External Account Control] setting is enabled in "External Account Setting" of "Sharp OSA Settings" in the
system settings (administrator), the machine enters external count mode.
Unlike external authentication mode, when the machine is started in "external count mode", the login screen of the
external account application is not displayed. Only the job result is sent to the external account application. External
count mode can be used together with the user control function of the machine. (External count mode can also be used
when the user control function is disabled.)
