Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier

2 Answers

Sharp AL-1631 - would not copy.

My AL-1631 copier suddenly stopped working. When I press the copy button, nothing moves. I had checked the scanner lock and it is in unlock position. I see a red drum icon flashing in the panel. Does this mean that I need to replace the drum? The copier is about 2 years old making 30 copies/day. I do not want to spend $120 on the drum and then come to know that drum is not the issue. Can some one help me with this issue? Thanks a bunch!

Your unit definetly needs a new drum. The usual yield for this consumable is upt ot 15,000 pages, so at the stated rate, the unit yielded more than average. AL-1000 series share the same toner and drum, so finding remanufactured (or recycled) drum units should be no problem. In Puerto Rico, they are sold for about $79.00.

Error code on display, L1 or 1L flashing. What is


L1 or L1-00 indicates Scanner movement failure. The scanner is the part under the glass that lights up and moves back and forth. So if you lift up the feeder so you can see the glass, turn the machine off for a few seconds then back on. Watch the movement of the scanner. It should move right and inch or two then back to the left. If all goes well the copier should come to ready. Lay a piece of paper on the glass and press the print button to watch the scanner movement. If it binds up or does not scan correctly there are 2 possibilities.
1) your scanner lock is engaged and is preventing the scanner from moving. Check the clear plastic dial located under the far left upper side of the copier, near where the paper exits the machine. Make sure it is in the unlocked position.
2) Your scanner rail is dirty and dry. This rail can be seen under the glass towards the back of the copier. The scanner rides on this rail. It is very common for these to get dirty and for the grease to dry up causing the scanner to freeze up on the rail. The glass must be removed and the rail cleaned and lubricated.
Just power off then on the copier to reset.

The lock/unlock button prevent the slider to start


Yes it needs to be unlocked, that lock is a travelling position to be only used to stop movement of the scanner during transport. the switch is often bumped, it's undernear the scanner part.

Sharp AL 1631 is flashing 1 L. What does that


Hi:

This might refer to your scanner assy being locked. The scanner assy is the unit under the glass that scans your document prior to copying it. Look inside the cavity where you pick up your completed copies. Look at the upper left corner and see if there is a knob there. If there is, make sure it is in the completely unlocked position.

SHARP AL 1631 copier is flashing L1 and will not print


Ensure the carriage lock is off, if you have cycled the lock and restarted and still have the problem you may have a fault with the scan carriage.

Scanner bar will not move to scan the paper to be copied.


a piece of plastic locks your scanner in place, it is under the scanner up above where the copies come out. It turns 90 degrees.
Maybe some one turned and locked it.
Good luck
