Question about Sharp AL-1655CS Copier

1 Answer

Grinding noise at startup and printing, AL-1655CS

I just bought a used AL-1655CS scanner/copier and when it starts up it makes a horrible grinding noise. It does try to print out a copy but parts of it are unreadable, compressed together. From the sound of it I would guess I have a stripped gear somewhere in there. I am going to take it apart and could use some advice on what to do and any shortcuts there may be. I took the cover off the back and see a few motors in there, that's where i'm going to start. I bought a new toner cartridge and tried that hoping for the best but that was not it. Is there a common problem with a gear in these units, I swore I saw something a few days ago, can't find it again. Thanks in advance if you can help!

    no paper stuck in there, it does print, but not well.

  • Greg Koons Feb 05, 2009

    No, nothing like that, it still puts paper out but quality is very bad.

    I have the same problem of having terrible noise. Didn't force it to print to further damage it. Anyone has any idea on how to fix it? Or is it worth fixing?

HI. My Sharp AL-1655CS Laser Printer is making an extremely loud noise when printing and when the paper comes out its all jammed like an acordion. Can u please help me?


It's going to be the fusing unit that needs to be replaced. It's also a good idea to replace the gear in the machine that drives the fuser at the same time. Both are available here: http://olsonbros.com/sharp/specs/al1655cs.html

LOUD GRINDING NOISE


The black dust is toner. Be carful as it is carcenagenic (dont get it on your skin) you will need to dispose of the leaking toner cartridge and get a new one. also you will need to clean the printer very carfully to get rid of the spilt toner. A combination of spray duster and a toner hoover are the best way. do not use a normal hoover as you will kill it.

It is always possible that you have done serious damage to the printer using a non standard toner cartridge. I would recomend getting a qualified person to give the printer a good service.

Sharo al 1631 makes clicing noise and does not


Sounds like your scanner is jammed or the scanner motor has failed.

If you are so inclined, turn the power off, you can remove the glass and try to move the scanner by hand, if you can't move it then it is jammed, if you can move it to the middle and turn the machine back on, does it return it to its home position? if so, the motor may be OK, but the control board may have a problem, if not, the motor have likely failed.

Hope this is of some help.

Canon PIXMA 530 grinds away


I had a persistant grinding noise about 30 seconds after the printer finished printing. It's been going on about 2 months. I did one thing which seemed to work. So try opening the cover on the back of the machine by lifting upward on the gray lever in the middle of the back of the machine. Leave this cover open during and after printing. The grinding noise went away.

Lexmark C510 Laser Printer- Grinding Sound on startup and while printing


Thank you Krissy! I had the same problem with the horrible grinding noise.

I took out all of the toners and the photo developer and noticed that my Blue toner was leaking all over. After reading your post, I tried replacing the toner. It worked!!! No more noise - and no more mess!

Very common problem with this model, the gear that drives the fuser (the hot part) breaks. If you are not a tech I would bring it into a shop. Also ask them if they can replace just the gear and not the whole fuser. (much cheaper)
