The "Paper Jam" light on my Sharp AL-1631 copier stays on

I have repeatedly tried to clear all paper debris and fragments.
The "Paper Jam" lights stays on and I am unable to copy anything.

I have opened every conceivable door, turned the machine on its sides, it back, peered in with a flashlight, ut CANNOT find anything causing the jam.

    I cannot clear the paper jam on my Sharp AL 1631 and there IS NO paper jam. Yes, I have opened EVERY door, taken toner out, taken drum out, etc. Is this thing just a hunk of junk? It would figure...I just bought new toner for it!!!

The paper detector on the fixing units have a history of going bad. The fixing unit is the hot roller above the drum inside the right door on the top. As the copy comes thru the rollers the paper hits a plastic lever that is spring loaded and located in the middle of the fixing unit. The sensor is all the way to the right side of the fixing assembly. If you move the lever in the middle you'll see a piece of plastic moving on the right, that piece comes out of the sensor and if can't reset the jam, that piece may not be resetting itself back inside the sensor. This is difficult to try to explain.
Good luck

I have a Sharp AL-1631 Copier. The 'P' Light comes on indicating a paper jam, however when I open the machine there is no paper jammed. Any suggestions?


Check the dash and see if the lower tray is selected or the by-pass tray on the side. If the side tray is selected change to the bottom tray.

NEW COPIER AND THERE IS A LIGHT ON AND I AM NOT ABLE TO COPY WITH IT,. TWO CIRCLES W/A ZIG ZAG LINE. AND I DON'T HAVE A MANUAL. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT.


I believe that is the Paper Jam light you're referring to.

Those two circles are supposed to be rollers and the zig zag is the jammed paper.

Be sure to check EVERYWHERE for a jam and move the rollers if they will let you.

Sharp al-1631 misfeed light will not go out


This usually happens when a sensor that detected a paper jam has not reset itself after removing the paper. Make sure that when the jam was removed - all the paper came out and there is/was not a small piece missing that could have been left behind in the copier and is hiding somewhere. If you are sure the paper has all been removed then what could have happened is when the jam was being removed it could have caught on one of the paper sensors. This could pull the little flag that activates the sensor out of place - giving a false paper jam message. there are only a handfull of sensors in the paper path. remove the paper tray and make sure there is no paper stuck behind the tray or in the cavity where the tray goes. look and follow very closely the path the paper takes - look for any sensors/flags the paper would avtivate and make sure the flag moves freely and is not lopsided.
Make sure you also try unplugging and replugging the copier from the wall.
Hope this helps

MISFED INDICATOR LIGHT FLASHING


There is no code to run.
Did the paper come out as an entire sheet? Or was it torn? There is either a small piece of paper that remains in the machine, or you dislodged a paper switch in removing the jam.

Paper jam


IS IT THE PAPER JAM LIGHT? LOOK IN THE PART WHERE THE PAPER COMES OUT OF THE MACHINE IN THE CAVITY ON THE LEFT SIDE FIND THE EXIT ROLLERS IS THERE ANY PAPER THERE? PULL OUT YOUR PAPER CASSETTE ALL THE WAY LOOK IN THAT CAVITY. OPEN THE RIGHT HAND DOOR THERE IS A GREEN ARROW THAT MOVES THE GATE LOOKIN THAT AREA. HOPE THIS HELPS IF THESE DO NOT FIX YOUR PROBLEM YOU NEED A TECH TO LOOK AT IT.
