The silver bar that the scanner rides on needs to be lubricated. be careful when moving the scanner or you can damage the lamps.

Sharp 1642, erro L1


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.

My copier is not working and I have an ( L ) flashing in the lcd display.


L what? Should be like L1, or L6?
If it is L1 then do a search here. I have a tip posted for solving L1 on Sharp AL series copiers.
In fact here is the link just in case you have an L-1 problem.

Sharp AL 1631 is flashing 1 L. What does that


Hi:

This might refer to your scanner assy being locked. The scanner assy is the unit under the glass that scans your document prior to copying it. Look inside the cavity where you pick up your completed copies. Look at the upper left corner and see if there is a knob there. If there is, make sure it is in the completely unlocked position.

SHARP AL 1631 copier is flashing L1 and will not print


Ensure the carriage lock is off, if you have cycled the lock and restarted and still have the problem you may have a fault with the scan carriage.

Flashing "L1" error


Hello,
A letter "L"  and a number "1"  appear alternately = The scan head locking switch is locked. Unlock the scan head locking switch.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

Getting an error L flashing then 1


Background:
The L1 is indicating a scanner lock.

Easy way to fix it:
1. Turn machine off.
2. Turn scan locking switch to unlock. 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 of it around page 9 or so).
3. Turn machine back on.
4. Try a copy.
5. If you still get an L1 then it might need service because the scanning bar is jammed. They will ask you to try some service codes first to verify that it is indeed jammed. Call 1800 237-4277 for further support.

Followup:
This also is a fix if you are getting blank copies.
