This can be caused by several things. The first is the door has been hit so it not aligning properly, second is that he platen roller could be worn and the third is that the spring that holds down tension on the head is sprung. 90% of the time its the door damaged because they hang out of the c-arms and people strike them against objects. I have been working on Sony medical products since 1993

SOURCE: Printing only bottom half of picture.

I had the exact same issue with mine! I didn't manage to fix it, but I know exactly what the issue is. If you open the printer, you'll find a black rectangular box above where the film fits inside the printer. This black box is connected to the board above it, and is supposed to press down against the film, and then against the paper for it to print properly. There is a little bar above the rectangular box, and there should be two plastic pieces on both ends of this bar. The bar is also connected to the gears, and when the gears move the bar, the two plastic pieces coming off of the bar push the black box down. When I looked at mine, only one of the plastic pieces was doing its job; the other one was broken, and was sliding on the bar. Tried some super glue, wouldn't work. I suggest tossing it out like I did, unless it's still under warranty or you want to try fixing the plastic piece so the printer head gets pressed down all the way.

SOURCE: my sony dpp-fp55 leave 2/3 of the paper white while printing

They are thinking the cartridges are dirty or the heads. I am thinking it is a setting for the printer or an actual glitch in the printing program. If you have successfully printed on this printer before, then very carefully go through the settings, looking for print margins settings specifically. This sounds simple but you might want to make sure your paper trays are adjusted correctly.

SOURCE: UPDR150 Thermal Photo Printer: My Sony UPD-150 is printing on only 3/4 of the 5X7...

One of the pins is bent. Its not closing completely so when it prints the heads are not touching the media evenly causing this effect. We have four of these printers and have seen this before. You need to take some pliers and straighten the bent pin in the door to match the one on the opposite side. These pins are located near the top edges of the printer door.

Print film out


Check to see if your print film is literally out.

Make sure the film roll is installed correctly. The machine senses a micro chip on the roll (RFID), to determine - Type, Amount left and Presence.

Does my SHARP UX-266 take ink? if so WHAT TYPE?


In a sense, it does use ink.
In the form of a film, like carbon paper. you can get replacement rolls here, or just type in your model number and film in to a search engine.

Paper rolling up with the thermal film


The best thing you can do, short of launching the thing into inter-galactic travel, is to clean all of the plastic parts of the machine with an anti-static cleaner. Particularly, the roller that feeds the paper and the carbon roll. Remove all paper and carbon film and unplug the machine. Clean inside the paper housing and the feed rollers before turning it back on. It sounds like a build up of static electricity, a common problem on such thermal based fax machines. Remember, the paper has the propensity to curl because it is on a roll, so any extra help it gets will send it curling like mad. Good Luck.

Film Loading Error


This also happens to Yashicas often. (though instead of stirpping the film, it will rewind it back into the roll. Something's wrong with either the firmware or the drive system. It'll need to be taken to a camera repair shop, or you'll have to send it back to Canon for warranty service, if it's still within warranty.

The film cartridge can be purchased at almost any office supply store like Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, online and even Ebay.

IF there is film still left, make sure that the tension of the film is tight where there isn't any slack. If there is too much slack, or you are at the end of the roll, then you will get that message on your machine. One thing you can try is to roll the film backwards. There is a supply roll, and a take up roll. Just take the cartridge out and spin the roll the opposite way for about 5 feet or so. Then place the cartridge back in and see if it works. If it works then all you need to do is buy a new cartridge.
Hope this helps.
Good luck

You are going to have to go back to the imaging film and use that for all the stuff because your fax has got used to the imaging film!
