Question about Sharp AL-1540CS All-In-One Laser Printer

Scanner bar won't move

My printer is not hooked up to the computer. It flashes L1. Called Sharp and they said to send in for repairs or exchange after he had me do somethings to it. The error code that was flashing after he had me do somethings was 004 611. I know that L1 means it is locked- but it is not locked. When the tech from sharp had me do some things the bar did move. Can I fix it myself. Thank you.

    I have the same problem where my scanner bar won't move. I called sharp and they had me go through a series of steps to reset the machine, but it still would not move and the lock switch is not in the locked position. Is there something I can do to fix it? I can't afford to send it to Illinois from California, the whole shipping and repair would cost me an estimated $300.

    I have the same problem with my Sharp 1540cs. Scanner bar starts to move and then errors out with L-1. I have turned off the machine, checked the Lock Button, cable, cleaned and lightly oiled the scanner rod and it still gives me L-1. I can move the scanner to the opposite end and the machine will return the scanner to the starting end. I also got an L-5 and once an E-7. I don't know what the problem is but sure would like to try to fix it.

I fixed this problem (after exhausting the usual) by removing the actual scan locking plug. It is a design fault. I do not think there is any other solution. By the way it is not difficult to do.

According to another source, the L1 error means "Scanner position error". Hope you find a solution, and not an expensive one.

What does L 1 mean on my Sharp AL-1540CS Also E 7. Help.


The L1 is for a scanner movement failure. The scanner bar that maoves back and forth under the glass is not moving as it should. The E7 is for a scanner lamp reference failure which CAN be caused by the scanner movement failure so I would try and resolve the L1 first. I have a tip posted here at Fixya that resolves the L1 so try that first and it may fix both problems. If not just comment on this and I will try and help you resolve any remaining issues.
Here is the link to the L1 solution:

L 1 flash. everyhting checked, lock lever / c auto and 14 start. /Nothing gets rid of it. cleaned lubed track rod. On phone with sharp tech support. they say send it in.


Tell us what happens when you reset the L1 with the C, Exp. Mode(Far left key), C, Exp. Mode, 14, then Print clearing method. Do this reset procedure then lift up the ADF and watch with scanner move back and forth. It should bump out and in a few times with the lamp lit. Then park back into home position.

Error code "L" & "1"


L1 indicates a scanner feed problem. Make sure the scanner isn't locked in the shipping position. It is underneath the scanner where the paper exits the machine. Look for a plastic dial and turn it one way or the other.

L1 IS USUALLY TO DO WITH THE SCANNER POSITION CHECK THAT THE SCANNER LOCK SWITCH HAS NOT ACCIDENTLY MOVED CAUSING A LOCK YOU CAN CHECK THIS BY LIFTING THE LID AND TURN THE MACHINE ON AND OFF IF THE SCANNER IS FREE YOUN WILL SEE IT MOVE TO THE HOME POSITION.

WHAT DOES A L1 MEAN


The L1 is indicating a scanner lock.

1. Turn machine off.
2. Make sure the scanner lock is unlocked. This is a clear plastic knob. (it is located on the left hand side of the machine under the document glass in the copy exit area - check your manual for a picture.)
3. Turn machine back on, watch scanner to see if it moves.
4. Try a copy.
5. If you still get an L1 then it might need service because the scanning bar is jammed.

This also is a fix if you are getting blank copies.
Hope that helps...

System Error [L1-00]


Error code L1-00 indicates that the scanner is locked down for transport. There is a dial under the scanner by the paper output tray. Rotate the dial, and the error message may be cleared. The dial controls the scanner lockdown mechanism.
