Re: Sharp copier AL-1642CS

Here is what worked for me.
You need to alternate pressing the clear button then one of the auto buttons until the display lights turn off.

First press the clear button (red letter “C” on the unit) then the auto button. (below the word auto there are 3 buttons. Press the one on the far left that has no other markings on it. This will only take 2 or 3 times back and forth.

When the display is blank enter the number 14 (like you were making 14 copies of something) then press the Green (start?) button. Let the copier warm up about 30 seconds and try making a copy.

It worked for me. Still having trouble call Sharp USA 630-378-3590 or Canada 905-568-7140. They were quick and helpful

Re: Sharp copier AL-1642CS

H4-00 is a fuser code. Check to make sure no paper is jammed in fuser (the hot section, on top inside the right side door). Code means low temprature in fusing unit. You can try resetting the code by entering the simulations and using code 14 to reset. If this does not fix it you need to replace the fusing unit.

This is a fuser problem. Replace the fuser and clear the H4 code and life should be good!

We have a Sharp AL-1642CS Copier machine. That currently isn't working. What does a CH code mean?

CH code = Toner Cartridge is missing or not installed properly. In rare cases it is a defective toner cartridge. Also double check the right side and front doors proper closure.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Sharp AL-1642CS Copier, the scanner is jammed

Not familiar with that model but what I would try is to turn off the copier remove the glass and try moving it by hand, then turn it on and see what happens it may have a bad motor

Sharp copier al-1642cs

This error is caused when the scanner glass is in the locked position. Make sure it is unlocked underneath the scanner on the left side.

If you look into the scanner is the ribbon cable tangled up or frayed?
