Sharp AL-1457 - L1 - Error Code

Hi,

I read one of the threads where you participate and it seems that you know a lot about this kind of things so maybe you could give me some help on that. I got this printer from a company which simply bought a new one. The printer seems perfectly ok - just for some reason it shows the L1 error.

I opened and lubricated the printer, I can move the lamp carriage and it also moves by it's own when powering up the machine (coming a bit forward and going back quickly). Also the black sensor in form of a "u" fits perfectly together with the metal located where the home-position is. This printer has never been serviced or opened up and worked fin until it started with this L1 error.

Considering what I read it seems to me that the L1 error get's triggered wrongly by the printer.

Is there anything else I can do without spending money on it (I think it's not worse spending money on this machine any more however my grandpa would like to use it).

thanks and best regards,

Markus Pandur

hi i am a certified Canon repair tech for this printer. this machine has a service bulliten for this problem and i have preformed the repair of this problem. the carridge lift cams are rotating faster then they should due to the wrong grease being applied to the part at the factory. this will require a Canon service center to repair because they is a special grease that needs to be used to slow down the cams. the best way is to contact Canon at 1-800-OK-CANON to locate a service center near you and they will repair the machine under the warrenty. hope this helps.

If you mixed up where the sensors plug into the board then the printer will not be able to sense where the carriage is. Make sure the sensors are all plugged into there proper jacks.

No. There is no reset as there is with some units. This unit actually knows via a smart chip in the drum unit if it has reached EOL ( end of life ).

My sharp AL 1551 CS is getting a L1 error code before that it was getting a E7 code. The scanner will light up and shut right back down, then it shuts itself down again.

How to remove L1 fault


Sharp AL 1457 Flashes code L 1. I have read about the scan lock on here and have turned it to the unlock position but it still does not work. It is definitely turned to "unlock" and continues to flash L 1
I have switched it off and on again. I have unplugged it and then replugged in. No joy.
Any ideas please?

Scanner bar won't move


According to another source, the L1 error means "Scanner position error". Hope you find a solution, and not an expensive one.
