Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a Sharp AR-M450 copier/printer/scanner. For both prints and copies, the paper stops right at the final roller stage, the rollers being driven by a stepper motor. The copier/printer gives me an error code of H5-01. This is a final stage output error code. There is also I believe an optical switch at this point that senses the presence or lack of the paper. I've disassembled the output stage of the machine, cleaned the parts with compressed air and reassembled, lubing areas that seemed like it might need it, but no luck. Having removed the stepper motor and spinning the rotor, it seemed a bit tight, cogging at the small steps. Any ideas on what might be causing the error code and what might be the primary culprit?
H5-01 indicates that you have 5 continous paper jam in a row. It's generated when one of the paper feed sensors did not detect the paper, in your case the sensor might be the one that located in the exit section ( POD1 ). This photo sensor might be just covered with paper dust in between the gap housing, the gap is only 1 mm wide. You can check the functioning of this sensor by entering the sim mode 30( main code), 1(sub mode). After entering this mode try activate the sensor by moving the plastic actuator, if the POD1 display highlighted on and off it means OK. To enter the simulation mode go to the copy mode and perform the following procedures.
[P] [*] [C] [*] [Main code] [START] [Sub code] [START]
But first reset the error H5-01 by entering 14(main code) then 1(sub code), you might be already fix the problem.
