Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier

1 Answer

Compatibility with a Mac.

I bought the Sharp AL 1631CS on Sept. 18, 2008 and used it on  my PC. Then I did something I had not planned. I bought a Apple  Imac 2600 Pro to replace the PC.  Now I find out this printer/copier will not work with the Mac.  Do you know of any way to make it compatible?

You can use it as a printer if you have a USB port or an ethernet connection if you have your copier connected to the network.
Scanning probably isn't available.
You can get printer drivers at sharpusa.com

Is there a driver for mac for the sharp al-1642cs? Or something close that can get it working.


Sorry, but it appears that your printer is a Window-only supported machine & cannot be used with a Mac.

I need to install a sharp al 1655cs driver's to mac


Hi There,

Here's the download site for your printer. None of the drivers available for download are for MAC OS of any kind. You might try contacting Sharp from this site to ask about an alternative download page for MAC. It may be that, 1. Sharp does not support MAC for this machine at all or 2. The driver is embedded in some MAC OSs but not others.

Take a look and good luck.You might also try Googling some MAC forums and see if someone has had any success finding a MAC driver for this machine.

I want to install my AL-1530CS with my new HP Laptop 64-bit running Windows 7. Where do I get the correct driver?


There are NO Win 7 drivers, and I suspect there never will be. Sharp are NOT writing a Win 7 driver, for this "Old", according to Win 7, hardware. You may be able to install a, XP SP2 or Vista 64 bit driver, and setup in Compatibility Mode, however if you do,do this EVERY-TIME you Bootup you MUST press F8, and select to Disable "Digital Signature Checking" at bottom of list. You need to do that at install time too.

Cant set up printer with my Macbook Pro and missing CD


You need the Post Script expansion if available for your copier. Most Sharp copiers will need this option to work with Macs.

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

Printer drivers for Mac.


Goggle download program for Sharp AL-1540CS. This should take you to a site that will download the program for you. I recently got a new Vista computer and did this to hook up my old printer on it. It worked fine.
Good Luck
