Sharp AL 1631 ---- Getting blank copies

Sharp AL 1631
Blank copies with no error message.
I’m not familiar with this model. I haven’t seen the machine yet but I’m hoping it’s the corona wire. Any other advice would be helpful.
Thank You
Jack

Its a Sharp AL-1631. It'll copy from the auto feed


Check under the scanner, there is a scanner lock that you may have hit removing copies. Its most likely in the locked position and stopping scan.

Tip

All sharp 1631 and 1642 models have scan unit problem.


When scan unit doesn`t move you have (L1-from left to right)and (L3-from right to left)code or blank copy (white).first must check scan uniy lock under the scan unit-then service 2 plates that scan moves on it.

My al-1631 gives blank copies. just replaced toner. no warning lights of any kind. no message lights. it just prints out blank paper. could it be the drum? can't find instruction manual. purchased...


Was the copier working fine before you changed the cartridge? If so I think your cartridge is the problem. If it started making blank copies right after you changed it. If this is not the case the first thing I would say is it is not the drum. Try opening and closing the right side door. There are contacts in the door that will cause blank copies. I have had several customers do this and it fixed the problem. You can also try pulling out the toner and then pull the drum unit partially out and re-seat it. Then re-install the toner.
Good Luck

Sharp al-1631 copier. drum error code


You can reset this indicator by pressing these keys in sequence:
Press "C" then press "Exposure Mode" then "C" again then "Exposure Mode" again.
Note that the Exposure Mode key is the far left key on the panel.
One you press these 4 keys in sequence the display should go blank. Then key in 24 as if to make 24 copies. Then press Print (Green Button)
Then key in 7 as if to make 7 copies.
Press print again. You should now get flashing 000.
Turn machine off then back on and the light should be gone.
Here it is in a short version:
C, far left, C, far left, 24, print, 7, print,
then power off and back on.

Top load copies are blank


I tried changing the the size to a reduction. It took the sheet from the top and copied it at a reduced size with no problem. Then I switched back to normal size and it worked just fine. I would have never thought to try a different size without your suggestion. Thanks for the help

Sharp Al 1631 prints half a page


Sometimes the originals hesitate using the document feeder, which can cause the problem you are describing. Do you get the same rsults if you lay the original on the glass?

Poor quality copies


Hi, this is most likely caused by a worn or faulty drum.
