Hi ESP597,
We haven't had this particular model in South Africa but the "L1" error code on a SHARP machine normally means that there is a problem with the scanning unit (where the exposure lamp is under the glass) on the top of the machine.
The unit does not return fully to the "home" position within the required time interval.
Various things could cause this.
The most common one is that there is an obstruction of some kind preventing the unit from reaching the right position.
Some models have a clear plastic transport stopper that sometimes gets turned by accident when the user tries to clean the machine. If your model has such a stopper to locate it look in the cavity where the paper comes out of the machine,towards the left front of the upper part of the machine the stopper is normally sircular in shape and rotates through 90 to 180 degrees.(its function is to lock the scanner unit during transportation so as to protect the lamp from damage)
If your model has this stopper then rotate it in the opposit direction to where it currently is and the problem should be solved.
If however there is no stopper then there is very little that you can do yourself other than to contact the closest SHARP service centre for assistance.
Hope this has been of assistance to you

Tengo una asus y no puedo escribir la letra enie.

para que pueda meter caracteres con la combinacion alt - (numero) tiene que utilizar el key pad numerico,

en un laptop para poder utilizar el keypad numerico (letras: u, i, o ; j, k, l; m, <, >) necesita utilizar la tecla "fn" y la tecla funcion que activa el key pad numerico (en mi caso es la tecla f11), en su caso puede ser diferente, mire los symbolos en las teclas de funcion, hay un simbolo que asemeja en teclado numerico diminuto.

por ejemplo para meter la letra "ñ" presione lo sigue

1. active el keypad numerico tecleando una vez y simultaneamente "fn" y f11 (o la tecla que active esta funcion en su teclado).
2. ahora si teclee alt y manteniendo presionado alt, teclee uno a uno las teclas j, o, u las cuales ya deben estar activas como numeros 1, 6, 4 respectivamente.
