L6 is a Polygon Motor Lock

You could try to reset the machine with a simulation code 14, which to perform it:
1. Push Clear, Auto, Clear, Auto in a steady rythmic fashion. If done correctly the screen will go blank and all the lights will turn off. If done incorrectly wait 15 seconds then try again. Clear is the red "C" and auto is on the left hand side, the word auto directly above the button.

2. Once you're into this mode enter the number 14 as if you were doing 14 copies then push the green copy key.

If the L6 returns after the reset then you will need service on the machine, Sharp will fix it for a flat rate charge of $140.00 for parts and labor out of warranty. Give them a call 1800 237 4277 in this case.
