Re: Error Code F1 on Copier Sharp AR201
F1 means "shifter Motor Trouble". The motor that driver the shifting mechanism at the paper exit side is not functioning. The motor could be bad or there may be something binding the motor up. Take a real close look at the exit unit (where the paper comes out of the machine) and see if there is anything in the way of the shifter. It could also be a bad board issue - sending the wrong signal to the motor... or possibly a bad home position sensor for the shifter. You could try taking the shifter unit out for a closer inspection - make sure its properly installed. Hope this helps.

A error code F1-09 deals with the finisher of the copier. Have the bins gotten stuck or got something in it's way when moving up & down. I would turn the copier off and unplug the finisher from the copier, 1 screw holds connector in. Then I would turn it back ON and see if the code is gone, if so reconnect the finisher and you should be good to go...
To find out the sub code for the U2 error hold down the Start key. Below is a list of the errors:
U2-04 EEPROM serial communication error
U2-11 Counter check sum error
U2-12 Adjustment value check sum error (EEPROM)
U2-40 CRUM communication error
To clear the U2-40 error try pulling out the toner cartridge and firmly reinstalling it. If that doesn't work you must install a new toner cartridge. There is a CRUM chip on the cartridge that keeps up with how many impressions have been made with that cardridge. You cannot "refill" these cartridges without replacing the CRUM. This problem occurs frequently with remanufactured cartridges.
To clear other U2 errors you must enter simulation mode. Perform the following procedure to enter the simulation mode. Clear key - Interrupt key - "0" key - Interrupt key - 16 - Start key - Start key. The unit should reset.
You can hold down the start key when the F1 is displayed it will show a sub code. The service manual for that model shows only one F1 code which is an F1-06. That is a shifter motor trouble. That is the section after the exit that offsets the copies.
You can reset the code with the instructions below. If the error recurrs then chech the exit section shidter for proper movement. You may require an on site technician to remedy this issue.
To reset the error code:
Hit <clear> <interrupt> <0> <interrupt>
L6 - Polygon Motor Lock: The lock signal (the specified rotation speed signal) is not supplies within the specified time (about 6 seconds) after starting the polygon motor rotation. LSU connector disconnection of harness disconnection in the LSU. Replace LSU.
