Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier
I looked it up in the manual and it says that the copier is locked. Actually its a 1645CS. I unlocked it, turned it off and back on again but I still get the same error. The copier barely starts up and quickly locks up.
"I've had this trouble recently. The lock switch is not so a lock switch but a circle object to the left of the printer and under the scanning part. I had to turn all the way to the unlock side and restart the copier.
What Bad place to put an lock/unlock switch"
This lock switch is for Transport,
It locks the Scanner, so as to not damage while in transport.
When installing/setting up the machine this should be removed?
If not sometimes people accidently bump it to lock position.
It can be easily removed with a Flat Screw driver. It will pop out easily..

There is a locking dial under the left side of the machine that maybey holding the scanner in home position.... be sure its unlocked.

It's possible the rail for the scanner has become gummed up. Remove the glass and use light oil, (tri-flow, 3-in-1, etc) on rail.

The copier is printing a dark black line vertically on the paper. I have cleaned the transfer charger and ckecked the toner cartridge. How can I get rid of these lines?

If unlocking and lubing the scanner rail does not work it will be the main pcb

First run a copy from the glass and one from the document feeder. If the line is only visible when running copies from the document feeder the problem is a dirty scanner glass. Clean the small piece of glass on the right hand side next to the larger original glass. Old style lighter fluid works best like Ronsonal or Zippo.(wick type - not butane) 2. If the problem shows in both copies you will most likely need a new drum unit, but you may be able to solve the problem by removing the drum from the holder by expanding the rear frame slightly until you can lift the drum out and then blowing out the charger unit above the drum with compressed can air. Reinstall the drum in the holder and check copy. ALWAYS HANDLE THE DRUM WITH A SOFT PAPER TOWEL - DO NOT TOUCH THE DRUM SURFACE or allow it to bump against hard surfaces.
