Question about Sharp AL-1655CS Copier

Strange part fell out!

Hi, Our copier has been making this weird quiet clicking sound for a while now, but has always worked just fine, so we didn't really think much of it. The following is a picture of a part that fell out today while I was removing the toner cartridge to shake it, and I was wondering if anyone knows where in the world it goes. Thanks in advance for any help! :-) -Tim

Re: Strange part fell out!

That thing that fell out of the machine is called a corona grid and is part of the charge device that puts a charge on the drum that is the first step in the copy process. It is help in place by the 2 yellow end piecesof the charge unit. You can see it when you open the from door of the machine. It will be toward the top of the machine and about in the center. It will slide out and you will see a very thin wire that is running through the the channel between the two yellow end pieces. You may not be able to reattach the grid without the help of qualified technician, but it's worth a try. Let me know if this helps.

How do I disable the sound on my canon mx870 printer? It makes loud tones at start-up and at shut-down. My roommate is VERY bothered by it and I wouldn't mind the printer not announcing that I have turned...

I was having the same problem. This is how to fix it. Go to the actual printer, press the setup button, scroll and click on device settings, scroll down and select device user settings, select volume settings, then you can turn off all of the sounds of the printer. I also put it on quiet mode just in case. Hope that helps!

My copier is not working. It makes a click sound when starting

Does that click sound is like that copiers turning and turning, and when stops flashes red light?

If yes, replace toner!

Weird problem - printer works fine but noisy; sounds like gears are slipping. Afraid that it won't last much longer.

Noise is not good. The gears are plastic so they are self lubricating and quiet.

Open it up and check for any obstructions or excess dirt. That may be causeing the gears to bind a bit.

Unforuntetly the gears will eventually break if they are binding and making noise. At that point you should just replace the printer (if not before) as it will not be cost effective to fix it.

Was working fine until it fell over whilst on, it then started making a strange sound and now dosent work. a red light has appeared. Can this be fixed without losing the info store.

The hard drive sounds like it is physically damaged inside. Sometimes data can be recovered from the hard drive, but it does cost $

If the data on the drive isn't absolutely necessary to recover, I would get a new hard drive and reload the software.

Printer won't feed and makes a strange grinding sound

Its probably just old and worn out. They dont even make bubble jet printers anymore. Printers are cheap now anyway. Go to and you can get a printer for around 50 dollars.

Strange as it may seem, I tried my printer again and it works perfectly now, weird for sure.

Paper feed drags the paper to one side

This seems to be a design fault as the same thing always happens to me whenI used a Lexmark. You could try putting something next to the paper to level it up. (i.e strip of cardboard perhaps)
