Sharp AL1642 CS Copier Grinding noise and Paper Jams

When trying to make a copy, this machine makes a loud clacking noise and the paper jams up before the toner is fused onto it. The paper seems to start jamming up once the first part of it has passed over the drum, then it bunches up accordian style and the machine stops and the paper jam light comes on. I have to pull the jammed paper out and this ends up making a mess of toner inside the machine. Is this easy to repair myself? Help please. Thanks!

    Well, we took it apart to see what you were talking about and put it back together and the clacking sound and jammed copy problem is now gone! Maybe they were just out of alignment a bit or something? Not sure, but at least it is working because I couldn't find anywhere online where I could order parts. Thank you for your help. Hopefully it won't act up again.

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.

My sharp 2300-n notified me of a paper misfeed. After clearing all misfed paper, the copier is still telling me there is a misfeed, and is not allowing me to print or copy. Suggestions?


Make sure that all of the paper jams are removed. Check every available cavity, including your paper trays. Pull each tray out and make sure there are no jams right out of the paper trays. Sometimes a piece of paper can become lodged where you cannot see it.

If you are positive there is no paper stuck in the machine, then you have a paper-path sensor that is either dirty or faulty.

Paper jams at the fusing unit on my Sharp AR 275


Very common problem in that copier. The fuser unit has little pawls which seperate the paper from the rollers, they can become dislodged when customers remove jams. Another very common problem is the gear that turns those rollers wears down internallly, to check this make a mark on the orange fuser roller with a sharpie. See if the mark moves from it's previous spot after trying to make a copy. These rollers turn every time the machine is used or is turned on.

Copier jams after making one copy


Is the jam Physical? (Damaged lead edge where it may have caught some thing)
Is the jam Timing (paper if perfect, it just stopped.)
If it is Physical then you need to look for the obstruction, paper clip, staple, or small piece of paper. Check very carefully, remove any foreign matter and retry.

If it is a timing jam, the start by removing the paper, check inside the the paper feed area for foreign material, fan the paper and carefully reinstall it, making sure it is the right size paper for the paper cassette. if it has movable guides in the tray, be sure they are firmly against the paper on all sides.

Close up the machine and try again.

Hope this helps.

EP4000 Back to back copying paper jams


THE INK MAY NOT BE TOTAL DRY WHEN MAKING BACK TO BACK COPIES, SOMETIME YOU NEED TO LET THE PAPER TONER DRY, LET THE PAPER COOL OFF BEFORE PUTING IT THREW THE MACHINE AGAIN, AND I KNOW ITS A PAIN IN THE BACK SIDE.

TRY IT

Canon PC920 paper feed "clacking" & not working.


check the tray and make sure the guides are set correctly, clacking sound is usually because the tray is set for Legal and has Letter, the paper is towards the bac of the tray and the pick up assembly is making the noise,
otherwise the tray is either not going up (broken gear, )
