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

Dear sir;I suggest you go to simulation mode 30 & 40 to find out which sensor got problem procedure as follow;
1, press "program", "interupt" "clear", "interupt"
2, enter 30, press "start", enter 01, pres start again,then all the sensor light in the paper path are on the abnormal one blinking.
3, repeat same step for 30 sub 02 that's for paper path in the feed section.
4, repeat same step for simulation 40 sub code 01,that's for by-pass paper path sensor.
After you done those procedure you will find out which sensor block out or defect, good luck.

SHARP AL-841 Paper Misfeed Error? The little paper mis-feed symbol is flashing - though there does not seem to be a jam ANYWHERE. The copier will not re-set.  Can someone help? Thanks, Ron...

open right door and look on top there should be a littl lever there check carefully to see if there is a paper crumbled inside.
remove tray and look where paper feeds out.
