Question about Sharp AR-161 Laser Printer
I had a paper jam and had to remove the paper tray in order to extract a sheet of paper. Now the control panel is flashing "F" and won't print. What does this mean and how to I fix it?
It may be some pending job showing, please reboot your pc, power off printer and then resume back and check if everything goes straight.
Let me know the operating system and other detail so help you further..

Tips for a great answer:
Carefully remove the jammed photo paper. Gently pull the paper up and out of the paper feeder tray.
Reload the paper into the tray. Stack the paper on a flat surface and then carefully slide the paper stack straight into the paper feeder tray---along and aligned with the right side of the tray. Secure the stack in place by sliding the left "edge guide" against the paper stack.
Press the "OK" button to resume printing. If you had a "Paper is jammed in the printer..." error message displayed on the control panel LCD, pressing "OK" should also clear the message.
Pull the paper from the printer, if the status message reappears and/or the printer doesn't print, and check the paper for folds, buckling and curled edges or corners. Also check the sheets for sticking. If any of your sheets stick or have damage, remove them from your photo paper stack and replace with new sheets. Reload the paper and press "OK" to try again.

1 Switch off the printer and disconnect the power
supply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands or
metal tools inside the chassis.
Step 2 Pin down the exact location of the jam. The
three hot spots for a jam are the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray
and the print carriage, or between the print carriage and the output tray.
Step 3 Take off the front paper tray if the sheet got
stuck while it was still in the front area of the printer. If the sheet jammed
here, you should be able to see most of the paper.
Step 4 Pull on the sheet with both hands and steady
pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeper
in the machine.
Step 5 Open the back panel to reach paper jammed
between the feed tray area and the print carriage of the all-in-one printer.
Carefully remove the jammed paper from the machine.
Step 6 Use the carriage access door to reach a jam
further inside the all-in-one printer. You may need to move the print carriage
out of your way to clear the jam.
Step 7 Return any access panels to their closed and
locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.
