We have an old Sharp Copier AR-5132 and no longer have the manual. A message comes up "call for service" and "F1". Is there any way of fixing this on our own because the warranty has been up for years. Even if we cannot fix it on our own, just knowing what is wrong with it will be extremely helpful. Maybe we just need to clean the inside of it and reset it somehow.
Generally F codes have to do with the finisher(used to be called a sorter). with the machine off, diconnect the finisher cord from the copier and power back on. This should allow you to test the copier. I'm not sure on this model how exactly the finisher cord comes out. but it should be self explanitory when you see it.

Ploy for the AR-5316 copier is RMOTN0022QSPZ
AR-5132 I think I still have the parts guide at work will look next week. I may also have a pulled working laser unit. I can check with my office for a price if you want and if I can find it.
okay start by loading a piece of paper on the glass and choosing maual feed and placing a sheet of paper in the manual feed tray and press the start key and see what happens. also on some of the sharp copiers there has been a problem with the print button itself, so i don't know if that may be the case.
You can hold down the start key when the F1 is displayed it will show a sub code. The service manual for that model shows only one F1 code which is an F1-06. That is a shifter motor trouble. That is the section after the exit that offsets the copies.
You can reset the code with the instructions below. If the error recurrs then chech the exit section shidter for proper movement. You may require an on site technician to remedy this issue.
To reset the error code:
Hit <clear> <interrupt> <0> <interrupt>
