Do you have the inner finisher where everything is contained inside of the belly of the machine, or do you have the finisher that stands up next to the machine? If you have the stand up finisher does it have saddle stitch option and are those the staple we are talking about? There is normally a model number on the tag in back ex. FNX1, FNX2, or FXX1 . FNX1 isthe inner finisher and is easy to change the staples on. The front cover flips down right under the screen and then you grab the green lever and pull it to the left side of the machine. If you look inside the gap that is formed you will see a green lever pull this one down and then slide that unit down and into the gap. Save the white plastic piece with the green lever but pop off the clear plastic box by squeezing the two arrows that are printed on it and pulling up. then new staple unit will drop in. and then do everything in reverse to put it back together. Let me know if you have one of the other finishers and I can help with those too.
Definately CMYK so you can see which colors are out of gamut. If copies are lousy too, then you might have old supplies in the machine. In service sim mode (type # * C *) go to 64-5 and print the test charts directly from the print engine. You should get one greyscale and one color page. If those look bad, then you need a supply change (drum, developer, or belts). In the driver under Printing preferences you have the option to set color schemes until you find one that works. If you still have trouble, get a new driver from www.sharpusa.com, past that a firmware flash may be necessary.
When you installed the button manager you should be able to go in and change the SC descriptions ex. SC1, SC2 - SC6. When you use the sharp desk to scan you are operating in a pull scan but when you use the SC programs you are using the push scan mode. You can change the SC mode when you put the copier into scan mode.
Hi, The M-450 uses two different methods of scanning, 1 for the front and a second for the back. these can be cleaned and adjusted individually.
Make sure both glasses are clean and free from paper dust. If you open the doc feeder and find the two small **** glasses one is attached to the underside of the doc feeder.
Also the machine may need a good servicing with the supplies (Drum, Drum Blade, Developer...) being changed and calibrated.
I know this is a lot of info but there is a lot going on with this machine.
Hope that helps. Lbcoaster
The error code and clicking are both fuser related. The clicking is caused by the fuser bearings. Sharp has made several changes to the design of the fuser roller and added then subtracted some extra washers. It has been a problem for some time. Changing out the bearings may get rid of the noise for a while but ideally you would want to change out the rollers(new style) and bearings in one go. H4-02 indicates a heating problem in the fuser. operating temperature is not reached in a specified time. You could pull out the fuser unit and take it apart to make sure the thermistors that are touching the rollers are clean and also check the thermostats. clean any debris. It could also possibly be a board or heater lamp issue (maybe..). Clear the code in SIM mode by pressing the following keys one after the other "P" "*" "C" "*" and then enter 14 and and "start" key and execute. if copier does not reboot automatically then press the CA key couple of times.
