We have a Sharp AL-1631. It goes into powersaver mode (I think) and when we attempt to use it, it sounds like it's powering up but it takes several minutes and lots of pushes on the copy button to get it to actually work.
Anyone else experiencing this? What have you done?
With the AL-1631 the machine has a long preheat mode. You can extend the amount of time required before it goes into the mode by consulting the user manual for power save. As for the long time. Yes, it is normal Specs for the model state it can take up to 3 minutes for initial heating of the fusing section.

You can reset this indicator by pressing these keys in sequence: Press "C" then press "Exposure Mode" then "C" again then "Exposure Mode" again. Note that the Exposure Mode key is the far left key on the panel. One you press these 4 keys in sequence the display should go blank. Then key in 24 as if to make 24 copies. Then press Print (Green Button) Then key in 7 as if to make 7 copies. Press print again. You should now get flashing 000. Turn machine off then back on and the light should be gone. Here it is in a short version: C, far left, C, far left, 24, print, 7, print, then power off and back on.
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.

Your lamp carriage is most likely hung up on something. Unplug the machine , remove the glass and see if the lamp and mirror carriage are moving freely. If not, find out what it is binding on. It may not be lining up with the home position sensor on in the optics .
