    Thanks, would you know the part number for the cable and if there is a place to purchase it?

Take some scotch tape to the cable and secure it.  If the cable is too messed up and you still get the error code, you may need a new cable.
There is no reset code for an L1.

    I don't know the part number for that cable for that particular model.   Check with precision roller.  They have the part for you.

Sharp 157e H4 blinking,where is the fuse and or thermostat to check. This Church copier is 6 years old and paying a technician several hundred dollars to come out to fix it is crazy. Do you have any...

Push the 'clear' button and then the 'auto' button then the 'clear' button and then the 'auto' button again.This should be done as quickly as you can and the console will go blank.Next,select 14,which is the low temp clearing code, and then push 'start' and then turn the machine off and back on again.

L-1 error code.

Turn the copier off and remove the scanner glass. Sometimes the ribbon cable underneath the scanner gets bound up on the scanner. Flatten it out and secure it with scotch tape. make sure that the loop has enough slack on it for the scanner to travel freely.

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...

Check the scanner lock located under the scanner section on the left side. Change the position of it.

If it sitll locks the scanner could be jammed up by the cable. The scanner glass has to be removed to fix that.
