    ugh, the first part of the question is not mine. I'm not sure what happened there.

    I just have the "out of paper" text. The top paper intake tray seem to be working properly will send faxes no problem. However, I am unable to print anything. Any faxes recievced go straight into memory. Also when I press the "copy" button it just beeps twice real fast and nothing happens. It reads out of paper after that. The "red light" indicater highlighting the lower paper infeed tray is constantly on, which is full of paper.



    Thanks for responding.

Make sure you have a receiving tray. You can live without your sending tray. If you have the receiving tray and it says TRAY OFF thats because its not seated properly onto the frame. Make sure the tray engages the black sensor next to the speaker, also make sure you have paper in both trays to get rid of the OUT OF PAPER error. If the OUT OF PAPER error continues then you have a broken sensor in the upper tray.

    Sounds like you have more than one problem. I need you to do a full memory clear(keep in mind you will lose every phone # that has been stored.)Turn your fax on while holding down the stop and start key don't let go until the screen says 1=yes,2=no. Press 1 for memory clear. Make sure you have paper in your upper tray(don't over fill your tray-just below red line)and 500 sheet lower tray. Next press function, 2,05. or make a copy. I am running out of writing space please respond back and let me know if you can at least receive something.

Hi, I have a Sharp fax FO-781, and it keeps giving me a COM.E-2 or COM.E-4 error when I try to fax to a number. What is the problem, please?


Plug a regular phone into the wall jack to check for a dial tone.

Make sure the phone cord is plugged into the LINE port of the fax machine.

Call the fax number from a regular phone and listen for fax tones.

Go underneath the machine and make sure that a black piece of plastic is secured in there. Sometimes they get pulled out when the tray gets removed.

Print from Memory


Check and see if your fax has a power save button next to your LCD screen. Pressing it will store everything into memory or you could do a flash memory clear however you will lose everything that is stored in memory(RX and TX only). Press FUNCTION , 9,*,8,#,7 then press start, next press your # key to scroll to flash memory. Press start. This should fix it.
