Question about Sharp AR-507 Copier

Having weird trouble with copies.When using doc feeder,paper comes out fine but top quarter of copy is blank and rest of page is fine.When I scan from the glass,a full copy is printed but paper comes out slow and curles into a tube on the exit tray.Paper does not curl when I use the doc feeder.Is the fuser too hot?Fuser rollers seem to be okay.Is there a simulation I should try? perplexed, thanks for your help.

Why is my photocopier only printing half a page?

Sounds like one of the sensors in the doc feeder that detects the size of the paper has gone bad.

Also, make sure you always close the document feeder when making copies. Sometimes it helps to put a blank sheet of paper over the back of a small object if you're copying something small.

I am having a strip dark line when i do my photocopy

If this problem is happening only when you are copying and not printing, then you can narrow down the problem to the optics area. If you are using the doc feeder to copy, then I would check the small **** glass that the copies slide over; often times dirt or debris can get stuck there and cause horizontal or vertical banding (depending on the orientation of the original.)

Let me know.

I can't use Print function for ByPass or Document Feeder?

The document feeder is used for copying and scanning ,it is a unit in a copier where you can placed your documents or originals for copying and scanning. The bypass tray is used for copying and printing, the bypass tray is used for types of paper like plain paper, acetates etc and customized papers. If you want to used the bypass tray for printing you should go to printer properties or configuration and select the tray you want to used like bypass tray .

F-5 error

Manual says F5 as copy lamp lightning abnormality.
Never had on AR series Sharp machines this trouble,but remember on old Canon NP 6016 when lamp was bad -no dark ends and low intensity of lightning but intensity too high.This machine was equiped with doc feeder and customer performed a lot of copies from glass only and I think he was damaged lamp when close the doc feeder.
the fluorescent type lamp was used on this Canon-Sharp uses Xenon lamp (I think),but they could be very common in construction (tube with electrodes on ends and gass inside)
This fault is very difficult to troubleshoot-try another lamp first,next sensor from good working machine.

Dark edges

It depends... never use a Reman cart in these machines... only use sharp...especially if the machine is under warranty.

Does this happen when,
Using the Doc Feeder
When making copies from the Glass
Or when you print from a computer (assuming you print from a PC)

If you print something and this happens then it is inside the machine
Probably toner or developer dumping...

Take a few pieces of large white paper and cover the entire glass surface... make a copy is the line there? If so see the answer above... if not then close the top and make a copy with no paper on the glass... is that black line there.. If so then your top needs adjustment...

One more test
If you make a copy using the doc feeder, this black line only occurs when making copies with the doc feed, clean the **** glass, and try again...

Jams but only w/sheet feeder

Theres is a spring clutch in the adf that goes out. Once that is fixed it should work just fine.

Sharp ar-5316 E Problem

Make sure that the side door is secured. There is a corona wire in a brakced on the door and if it does touch the rest of the machine correctly, blank pages will spit out.
