Try these steps to cancel the error, press the buttons continously

STEP1. Press CLEAR key then EXPOSURE key then CLEAR key then EXPOSURE key

STEP2. Then you are inside the simulation if the display turns OFF if not, do again step 1 until the display turns off.

STEP3.press 14 then press print button

There is a crystal lock under the scanner and on the top of the exit tray. just rotate the lock, makes sure that the front of the lock is on the direction of the scanner(to the right).

Hope it helps...

SOURCE: My Sharp AL-1551CS copier is flashing L 3. What

Scanner movement failure. The scanner is the part under the glass that lights up and moves back and forth. So if you lift up the feeder so you can see the glass, turn the machine off for a few seconds then back on. Watch the movement of the scanner. It should move right and inch or two then back to the left. If all goes well the copier should come to ready. Lay a piece of paper on the glass and press the print button to watch the scanner movement. If it binds up or does not scan correctly there are 2 possibilities.
1) your scanner lock is engaged and is preventing the scanner from moving. Check the clear plastic dial located under the far left upper side of the copier, near where the paper exits the machine. Make sure it is in the unlocked position.
2) Your scanner rail is dirty and dry. This rail can be seen under the glass towards the back of the copier. The scanner rides on this rail. It is very common for these to get dirty and for the grease to dry up causing the scanner to freeze up on the rail. The glass must be removed and the rail cleaned and lubricated.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

SOURCE: Sharp AL 1551CS copier flashing

To reset the H4 condition on just about any Sharp AL series copier press the following key's in sequence and as quickly as possible (with 4 seconds for the first 4 keys)
Press "C" then the far left key (exposure mode) then the "C" key then the far left again.
So in other words C, far left, C, far left
Some model's use 2 other initial codes, so you may need to use one of these 2 alternate codes to get your display to go blank. The rest of the procedure is the same.
Alternate codes are: #, * , C, * or pound,star,C,star and also
#, Interupt, C, Interupt
If done correctly the display should go blank.
Now key in 14 as if you were going to make 14 copies.
Now press the print button.
The machine should reset and the code should be gone.
9 times out of 10 this is a false code that pops up due to power surges or noise.
If the code comes back this means you have a heater lamp or thermal fuse (more common) failure in the fusing area and will need service.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

instead of a screw, some models have a dial to lock the scanner for moving machine. look above where the paper exits machine twords the left side under the scanner assembly for a dial switch and turn it.

Sharp AL 1551cs reading L


I also have an AL-1551CS copier...normally the "L" has something to do with the scanner lock device underneath the left side of the top part (ie; the scanner) It's clear colored and round with protrusion to turn it from locked to unlocked...this is for moving the copier so the scanner (lamp and mirror assm) won't be disturbed. Use a flashlight or such to inspect the position of said device (ie; locked or unlocked) insure it is unlocked.....power back on and tell me if there is a number following the "L" Tim

H 4 error


If the Reset does not work, then you have a fuser error and your machine will need service.
H4 is a fuser heating error code.
Meaning the machine is not warming up because of a bad lamp, thermal fuse, thermostat, and or thermister.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

H4 error code


H4 is a Fuser Unit heating problem.
This reset is for another model sharp, see if it will work for you.

Press "Clear", "Auto Exposuer", "Clear", "Auto Exposure", the display will go dead... then press "14" (Like your going to make 14 copies), then press "Start".

Hope this works.
Good luck,
Mac

Al-1551cs / L!


Sharp Error Codes
Sharp ram clear (most models with LCD displays)
Press function 9 * 8 # 7 then # or * until display reads memory clear, then press start. Note the other maintenance mode options displayed on the screen when pressing # or *.
Sharp UX-170 maintenance mode: Turn power on, set the line selector at "T" (tone), turn the program switch ON, then press 9 * 8 # 7. Select the next entry from this list: 01 all black copy, 02 ROM/RAM check, 03 auto feeder mode, 04 aging mode, 05 panel check mode, 06 G3 transmission, 07 check pattern, 08 product check (includes diags, 06, 03, 09), 09 signal send mode, 10 memory clear, 11 led array on mode (lamp), 12 product program sw mode, 13 telephone number list printing mode, * soft switch mode, # transmission level. This same procedure works on similar, older models that do not have an LCD display.
Sharp UX-2100 often has power supply problems which cause the unit to lock up.
UX-3200/FO-3250: FO32TD toner/developer costs less than UX30TD and will work in the UX model if 2 fins are broken off so that the unit can be installed in the UX model. Similar duplicity exists with many Sharp laser supplies.
Sharp FO-4800: fuzzy print often results from a bad Motor PWB (polygon mirror) #RMOTN0020GCZZ located in the optical unit.
