Question about Sharp Office Equipment & Supplies

My Sharp AL1530CS Copier is sick. I have a Sharp AL1530CS Copier. It has been great but has gotten sick. I replaced the AL110TD cartridge recently with a generic cartridge and toner leaked from it

I have a Sharp AL1530CS Copier. It has been great but has gotten sick. I replaced the AL110TD cartridge recently with a generic cartridge and toner leaked from it so we cleaned it up and went back with Sharp brand. It will print 1 or 2 copies and then makes a fairly loud sound that it should not be making and starts flashing P even though there is paper in the machine. At this point if I single feed from the end it will print but seems to have a little difficulty accepting the paper, but the P goes off until I try to print multiple copies again. Is there anything that I can do? It's like an old friend that never gets sick. Help.

Your machine is jamming (flashing p) because the toner that spilled has made the rollers slippery and they cant pull the paper out of the paper tray.

You could have one of several problems. Seeing as how you just replaced the toner, it could be a defective toner. Did you have the trouble prior to cartridge replacement? Did you replace it with OEM or after-market/refurbed stuff? You could also have a broken corotron wire. On the right side door is an assembly that has a very fine tungsten wire strung across it. This wire places a charge on the paper to "pull" the image off the drum. if it's broken, you will get blank (or almost blank) images). A 3rd possibility I have seen is that your scanner lock is on. Usually this will cause L1 codes, but I have seen cases where it didn't, and your scanner never moves from "home" position to scan your originals, again, resulting in no image being processed, and therefore blank copies. The scanner lock is under the scanner assembly (above the area where your copies come out) on the left side of the machine. It is a dial mechanism that can be turned to either the locked or unlocked position. It's hard to see, and you almost have to stand on your head to get a good view of it. It is not uncommon that in the process of removing copies from the "catch tray" area to accidentally brush it with one's hand, or watch, or ring, and spin it to the locked position. Certainly a bad drum can effect copy quality as well, but before spending the money, I'd check/re-check the other 3 first.

Issue An 'Out of paper' error message displays on the computer and the product does not pick up or feed paper from the main paper tray. Solution Complete the following steps in the order provided to solve this problem. Step one: Reset the product

  1. While the printer is on, remove the power cord from the back of the printer, wait 30 seconds, and then plug the power cord into the back of the printer.
  2. If the printer is not already on, turn it on by pushing the power button.
  3. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next section.
Step two: Check the condition of the paper and reload it
  1. Replace any ripped, dusty, wrinkled, or bent paper. If the paper is curled, uncurl it by gently bending it in the opposite direction of the curl or replace the paper. NOTE: Use plain paper in the printer until the issue is resolved.
  2. Make sure that all the paper is the same size and type.
  3. Tap the stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges.
  4. Load 10 to 25 sheets of paper in the paper tray. NOTE: Do not load too much paper in the printer.
  5. Insert the stack of paper in the paper tray, and then gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper.
  6. Make sure that the paper is pushed all the way into the printer. Use the rear paper guide or your finger to push the paper in until you feel a firm resistance. If the paper is not pushed all the way in, the printer will not be able to pick up the paper. If it is pushed in too far, the printer will pick up multiple sheets of paper, which can result in a paper jam.
  7. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next section.
Step three: Adjust the paper settings in the print driver
  1. Adjust the paper settings in the print driver. The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.
    1. Open a document in the application in which it was created.
    2. Click File .
    3. Click Print .
    4. Click Properties . The Print Properties dialog box appears.
    5. Click the Paper/Quality tab.
    6. In the Size Is drop-down menu, select the paper size that is loaded in the printer.
    7. In the Type Is drop-down menu, select the type of paper loaded in the printer.
    8. Click OK . NOTE: These changes do not change the default print settings in the application. The print setting will revert to the default print settings the next time you open the application.
  2. On the Print dialog box, click OK to print the document.
  3. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to next step.
NOTE: If the issue is resolved and you want to print on another type of paper, change the paper in the printer and repeat Step 2 and Step 3 . Step four: Clean the rollers
  1. Turn off the printer and unplug the power cord.
  2. Open the access door to gain access to the rollers. Depending on the model, this is usually the rear access door. Refer to the product User Guide for information on locating the rollers.
  3. Clean the rubber rollers with a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water. NOTE: Purified or distilled water is recommended for cleaning the rollers.
  4. Close the access door and plug the power cord in.
  5. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.
Step five: Service the product If you have completed all of the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product. Cause Any of the following problems may cause the error message to appear:
  • The paper trays are empty or overloaded.
  • The paper is curled.
  • The paper-width guide is pressed against the paper stack too tightly.
  • The paper tray is not completely inserted into the printer.
  • The paper settings in the print driver do not match the paper loaded in the paper tray.
  • The rear rubber paper feed rollers are coated with dust.

SOURCE: AL-1631 TONER LEAKING

I had same problem for 6 months. Water didn't run on desk, so my unit WAS level. So, I just pulled out toner & drum and vacuumed up & sprayed air everywhere to clean up, then I made sure everything was tight (including side door where the little wire thing you have to clean occasionally with little green plastic square (supplied w\copier). That piece on door needed to be up and as far back as it can go (It does move slightly in and out - make sure it is IN). I then changed the drum (put same cartridge back) - only this time I made sure everything was really in place tightly. Not sure which fix did the trick, but it stopped leaking, and I've since copied over 400 pages since then and also had to change the cartridge after about 100 pages.
PS I also vacuumed underside the copier unit with tray out, and inside the paper tray as well. I've unsuccessfully cleaned everything up like this before, but 1st time I've changed drum, and 1st time I made sure EVERYTHING was tightly in it's place. Let you know if it starts to leak again. Hope this is helpful to someone out there.
Shari.
PPS. I am NOT using OEM drums or cartridges, but clearly THAT was NOT MY problem

SOURCE: Sharp AL1642 CS Copier Grinding noise and Paper Jams

Loud clacking sound, jamming in fuser ? sounds like the gear that turns the fuser are bad and not meshing together,
accordion jam is the fingers or claws that ride on the fuser roller are probably worn out ( these can be replaced usually 3-5 ).

You can buy the parts and replace them yourself if a handy person, not that difficult.

2 things:
1. Fusing Unit has to be replaced- worn or broken gear
and/or
2. Main Drive clutch has to be replaced.

Either way it has to be done by a trained technician.

I have a great copier it is a Sharp Z-52II but recently it started to give me a gray strip down one side of the page. I looked at the drum and it is showing a great deal of toner on one side but the other...


if you are seeing toner on the transfer drum, it is possible that the blade within the cartridge that cleans excess toner off the drum has failed. I am not particularly familiar with this model, but generally this occurs when using re manufactured or refilled toner cartridges and/or drums, as the people doing the refills do not always replace the blade. Though sometimes they simply fail without specific reason.

My best advice would be to try installing a new drum to see if the problem goes away.

Sharp AL Series Copier L1 L-1 Error Code Cause and Solution


L1 or L1-00 indicates 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.
Just power off then on the copier to reset.
This works in the following models:
Sharp AL1000, Sharp AL1010, Sharp AL1020, Sharp AL1041, Sharp AL1200, Sharp AL1215, Sharp AL1220, Sharp AL1250, Sharp AL1251, Sharp AL1340, Sharp AL1451, Sharp AL1520, Sharp AL1521, Sharp AL1530CS, Sharp AL1540CS, Sharp AL1551, Sharp AL1551CS, Sharp AL1631, Sharp AL1641CS, Sharp AL1651, Sharp AL1651CS, Sharp AL1655CS, Sharp AL1661, Sharp AL1661CS

Sharp AL Series Copier Drum Light Cartridge Counter Reset


To reset the drum light 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.
Then key in 24 as if you were going to make 24 copies.
Now press the "print" button
Now key in 7 as if you were making 7 copies
Now press the print button again.
You should now be getting flashing zero's on the display.
Turn the machine off then on again and your drum light should be gone!
You can usually reset this counter at least once to get twice the life out of your drum unit.
This works in the following models:
Sharp AL1000, Sharp AL1010, Sharp AL1020, Sharp AL1041, Sharp AL1200, Sharp AL1215, Sharp AL1220, Sharp AL1250, Sharp AL1251, Sharp AL1340, Sharp AL1451, Sharp AL1520, Sharp AL1521, Sharp AL1530CS, Sharp AL1540CS, Sharp AL1551, Sharp AL1551CS, Sharp AL1631, Sharp AL1641CS, Sharp AL1651, Sharp AL1651CS, Sharp AL1655CS, Sharp AL1661, Sharp AL1661CS
