Re: problem

L1:SCANNER UNIT FORWARD MOVEMENT PROBLEMS,POSSIBLY BAD SENSOR, SCANNER MOTOR, OR BOARD I would check that the transit screw that holds the scanner in place hasn't reconnected. The second thing is to lift up the glass and check that you can drag the scanning bit (the mirrored bit that moves) across. That should sort it.

What does L 1 mean on my Sharp AL-1540CS Also E 7. Help.

The L1 is for a scanner movement failure. The scanner bar that maoves back and forth under the glass is not moving as it should. The E7 is for a scanner lamp reference failure which CAN be caused by the scanner movement failure so I would try and resolve the L1 first. I have a tip posted here at Fixya that resolves the L1 so try that first and it may fix both problems. If not just comment on this and I will try and help you resolve any remaining issues.
Here is the link to the L1 solution:

Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Showing Catridge Empty signal with a new catridge


Please try to turn off the printer for a couple of minutes and then turn it back on again.

If problem still persists, please try to install the cartridge again. This time, make sure to follow the steps carefully on how you can replace the cartridge.

Provide feedback so that I can assist you further.

L1-18 code

I don't see a reference to a L1-18. A L1 code is a scanner feed problem. I only show a L1-00 code. Sorry.

An L1 generally means the lamp carage is not moving. Remove the glass and see if that lamp assembly moves back and forth freely or if it is hitting something in it's path.
