    Sim is short for simulation (this is the diagnostic mode for the copier)

  • John Edwards Dec 01, 2008

    Sorry this is the exact process.

    Type in "p" "*" "C" " *" (that is p button, star button, p button, star button.) the machine will go into sim mode enter 14 then press execute which appears on the lcd and the yes to confirm, then press CA and the machine should turn off then back on again

  • John Edwards Dec 01, 2008

    Did the machine reboot when you put the code in and pressed the ca button?

    The fuser is in the right hand side door it is the very hot section. I would not attempt to fix this yourself.

    Here is the H4-01 error from the sharp manual

    Trouble content The temperature does not reach the specified level

    within the specified time after turning on the power


    Section PCU

    Case 1 Cause Thermistor trouble, heater lamp trouble, PCU PWB

    trouble, thermostat trouble, AC power source

    trouble, interlock switch trouble

    Check and


    1) Use SIM5-2 to check blinking of the heater


    2) If it blinks normally, check the thermistor and

    the harness.

    Check the control PWB thermistor input

    circuit section.

    3) If it is not lighted, check for the heater lamp

    disconnection and the thermostat breakage.

    Check the interlock switch. Check the AC

    PWB and the PCU PWB lamp control circuit.

    4) Use SIM14 to cancel the trouble

    Asking for a new toner cartridge doesn't affect the error code, but might cause a problem once you have fixed the H4-01 code. The main problem is that your copier is not reaching the required temperture in the allocated time, this is "usually" caused by either a blown lamp or a tripped thermostat.

Really depends on the model/maker.
