It could be the Mirror Home Position Sensor malfunction, it's located at the upper left section of the upper frame, if the copy lamp is in its home position, there's a lever/part of the copy lamp that actuated this photo sensor. Try clean that tiny gap with a hand blower, if L3 still occur then you should change it.

You can try taking the glass off and cleaning the white strip under the **** glass, the mirrors and the lamp. If that doesn't work it could be the flat cable coming loose of the scanner or the CCD going bad.

Is there a reset code for a Sharp AR-507 copier, error H2-00?

enter simulation: pound, interrupt, clear, interrupt, then enter 14, press start,press execute on touch screen, press ca until copier restarts, this is a general clear code, if problem returns you will have a heat problem in the fuser.

Error CE while scanning though N/W in Sharp AR M-205

If subcode is 00 then network connection is problem, if 02, then its not talking to the network scanner tool on the computer. Might be an IP address problem, where the address in the webpage of copier is wrong for the PC.

L1 is flashing and the photocopier is not working


This is a scanner problem - didn't leave or come back to home, scan overload or cable off or drive problem. Try to unlock the scanner from it position ( Remove platen glass and move the scanner unit from it position)

Need for help.

C1-00 means MC unit malfunction. Try turning the copier off. Wait 30 seconds and turn it back on again and see if goes away.

If it comes back you should contact a technician in your area.
