    Hi, thanks again for taking the time to reply me and keep the interest on it, I'm trying to turn on the screen with not success at all, the only signs that turns on is the erros ico with the wrench on red light when I turn the switch on, so I'm just be wondering where I'm should start the search in order to make the screen turns on, Do you think that have somthing to do with the IOB, or burned fuses on panel source, because I'm bearly noticing that the screen turn a tiny litle light on, but I can't see any letter on it and when I turn it off I can see a little black dots than quickly disappear. Thanks in advance.

    You probably need a new drum and developer.  Do you have a source where you can get that?

That could be a power supply issue, a cable or a bad board. There should be an SC code with it as well.

As a dealer of those machines. It's cheaper to get a new one in most cases than to get parts for it.

You can find a refurb with 150,000 copies or less for about $500.00.

Aficio 350e

To get those parts needed to fix it nowadays, it's cheaper to get a new one.
You can find a refurbished 350e online for $500-$800 in American dollars with probably 150,000 copy count or less.
In our shop we don't even work on them with that high of a copy count because of the labor costs and time on it alone.  Their happier getting a new one.

This blinking wrench red light means that your copier needs to be serviced. How old is your copier or how many copy have you done with it ?
Otherwise, you may need to call a service man for it.

Sharp -AL1644 flashing L6 error

L6 is a Polygon Motor Lock

You could try to reset the machine with a simulation code 14, which to perform it:
1. Push Clear, Auto, Clear, Auto in a steady rythmic fashion. If done correctly the screen will go blank and all the lights will turn off. If done incorrectly wait 15 seconds then try again. Clear is the red "C" and auto is on the left hand side, the word auto directly above the button.

2. Once you're into this mode enter the number 14 as if you were doing 14 copies then push the green copy key.

If the L6 returns after the reset then you will need service on the machine, Sharp will fix it for a flat rate charge of $140.00 for parts and labor out of warranty. Give them a call 1800 237 4277 in this case.

Problem solved! The main power thingy (the thing with the big red wire coming out of it) was all black and dusty. There was 'soot' all over the whole insides of the monitor. I concluded that this monitor should be laid to rest, and a new flat-screen monitor erected in its place.
