Question about Sharp AR-153E Copier

1 Answer

No power When I turn-on the power, there's nothing on the control panel, I dont hear mechanical parts moving, but on the top where you place the documents, I can see a white light. Now I tried pressing the Scanner button, the lights, number zero came ON, but I cant change the number of copies up/down button. I hope it's now the mainboard problem.

Printer error 3515

Kodak ESP-5 error message 3515....tried Kodak way but didn't work....could hear the print head attempt to move but couldn't...unplugged unit from power....opened to expose the print cartridges...removed small screws on sides and back of printer...gently pry open top....turn gears on right side with finger toward front several turns.....check and see if print head will now move to center....(I removed cartridges and print head so I could see the blotter under print head move to back position. Re-installed print head and cartridges.) plugged power cord back in and turned on...unit cycled and then screen showed normal....replaced screws in top panel.....printed test page...back in operation......Don't be heavy handed....plastic will break very easy I think when opening panel if not careful...

The cartridges do not move when I open the top

Wait a few more seconds.

Do you hear any noise (spinning motors) when you open the lid?
If not, then either the motors are dead, or the sensor that reports "lid-open" is not working.
If you do hear noise, but nothing moves, then the cable that pulls the print-mechanism across has broken. It's impossible to replace that cable -- buy a new printer.

Canon mx300 states error 5100 check printer. when you open top cartridge does not move to the left to acess to replace ink. Help

Hi You can Try 2 things.

ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there

Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

When the plotter is turned on the lights on the control panel blink once, go out and then there is nothing. What is the problem, what is needed to repair it and where do I get the parts?

There is a circuit in the power supply that shuts it down if there is an over current condition. Over current is generally caused by a motor being jammed or a short. Open the plotter and manually move the mechanisms driven by the motors. Look for binds or broken parts. If the printer has had service recently, look for pinched cables. It is possible the power supply is bad, also.

Tally 6100 missing lines

horizontal or vertical characters missing???
if your missing horizontal lines, look at where the print is missing if you see imprints... u have bad ribbons.
if your missing vertical characters down the page
Power off the printer & unplug from wall
Remove with phillips the top right cover. u will see that the control panel has a plastic clip needs to be pressed in for the control panel to come loose from the top right cover.
Then you will see P703 Hammerbank Ribbon Cable and
P704 Hammerbank Ribbon Cable swap these 2 cables on the Engine Controller Board part# 083368.
IF your missing characters move to another place on the printout then u will need to replace part# 083368.
IF your missing characters are still in the same place, then you will need to replace hammer module part# 081152, their is qty 11 of the individual 081152 about 1 inch wide. this will save $$$ ordering and replace 081152 if you have some at your work semi technical.
Be very careful with hands when powering the printer with the top right cover off
Electrically and mechanically.
Need more help you may call Toby at x311

I Don't Have The Key

Darryl - lift up the top part of the scanner body (the silver part should separate from the black base) and let the kick-stand support the top part. Then look underneath the top part; there'll be a green tab sticking down from the top. If you look closely, you'll see little icons next to it that look like padlocks, one in an unlocked position and one in a locked position. Push the green tab away from you so that it lines up with the unlocked padlock, and that should do the trick.
