Re: Xerox XD 100 has L 6 appearing Nothing in the book...
L6 indicates a problem with the laser. Ususlly the problem is a worn out motor that rotates the mirrors in the laser.
I have seen a couple of times, the ribbon cable that connects to the main board from the laser just have poor connection. You can take the back off the machine and reset the connectors on the main board. But more than likely the laser will need to be replaced.I looked it up, and there are 2 different lasers for that machine. The prices are between $300 and $400. Wish I had better news for you. It is also not an easy replacement.

I have seen this more times than I can count. The problem you have is definately a broken fuser drive gear. The fuser unit is the black unit you refer to that gets hot. It has 2 fuser rollers that heat up and fix the toner onto the paper. One of the rollers has a drive gear on it that goes bad and breaks after a time. You just need to have someone replace the gear. I have included a link to the part that has a picture of the part. Also keep in mind that your machine is made by Sharp and is nearly identicle to a Sharp AL1000 model which may make it easier to find a local person that can install the part. http://www.precisionroller.com/search.php?q=al1000+fuser+gear
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
It' also listed at Microsoft as incompatable with vista. Best you can do is get a cheap old used machine that runs XP and set it up as a print server for your network, (set it up with printer sharing) send all of your documents thru it for printing. Sorry it's probably not the answer you were looking for but it is the only solution I've found for mine. I bought an old P3 machine running XP for $5.00 at a garage sale and it's working great as a print server.
I would first try opening the right side cover and inspecting the corotron. There is a small opening where there is a very small wire. Check for a small piece of paper in there. It would block the transfer corotron voltage and cause that line.
Then remove the toner and drum. Look at the toner cartridge and see if you can determine if its out of ink in that area. Then look inthe machine with the drum and toner out. Locate the laser and see if it the glass **** is dirty in that ares or blocked.
By the way. if there is no paper in the transfer wire, take some alcohol and clean it with a q tip to remove contamination.
You have to pop the top cover off the cartridge and empty the new ink into it.
I doubt though that the metering blade that dispences the ink onto the roller will last another toner cartridge cycle. But good luck.
