Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier

1 Answer

We have a sharp AL1631 copier and the misfeed paper light will not go out even though we have removed all the paper that was jammed. We have read that perhaps a sensor flag has been disturbed, but we do not know what we are looking for in order to make sure the sensor flags are "moving freely". Please can you help us.

I have a Sharp Al-2040cs when I turn it on the misfeed indicator is blinking. I checked it there no misfeed paper or piece of paper inside. How can I fix this problem?


The MISFEED Indicator blinks when a MISFEED has occurred. Remove the misfed paper referring to the the description of MISFEED REMOVAL beginning on page 65 of the pdf Manual at:

http://files.sharpusa.com/Downloads/ForHome/HomeOffice/PrintersFaxMachines/Manuals/cop_man_AL2030_AL2040CS.pdf

When the MISFEED Indicator is blinking you should look closer at the paper feed area (see page 66 of the PDF). You may need to remove the paper tray to find any remnants of paper. If after closing the side cover the light does not stop blinking you will need to follow through as per the illustrated instructions.

Remember after removing jammed paper, you need to press the clear key to clear the MISFEED error.

If after doing all this the error signal has not cleared, power down the printer; unplug from the power supply; let rest 5 - 10 minutes; plug back i to power supply; turn printer on and see if this resolves issue.

My sharp 2300-n notified me of a paper misfeed. After clearing all misfed paper, the copier is still telling me there is a misfeed, and is not allowing me to print or copy. Suggestions?


Make sure that all of the paper jams are removed. Check every available cavity, including your paper trays. Pull each tray out and make sure there are no jams right out of the paper trays. Sometimes a piece of paper can become lodged where you cannot see it.

If you are positive there is no paper stuck in the machine, then you have a paper-path sensor that is either dirty or faulty.

Red blinking light


Hi, this is not a cartridge related problem. As you have written, it is related to the paper misfeed. When removing any future paper misfeeds, always take extra caution as not to destroy the paper sensor. If it jammed near the paper tray area, first open the right cover to see the paper, the try to pull it slowly till it comes out. Never try to force it out as you may tear a small piece which will show you that a misfeed is still on. If it does tear, carefully remove it until its out. If it jams on the fusing unit, release the side levers on the copier or turn the green rotating lever on the front which appears when front cover is open until it ejects it out.

If you are sure there is no jammed paper, make sure the spring on right side of fusing unit, where there is a sensor is retracted to its position. Good luck pal.

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

Paper misfeed indicator light continues to blink even after paper


some machines will want all covers to be opened, then closed, for good reset. if you are having jams in the adf, then open all adf covers, and lift the adf upward, if it allows. also, try turning unit off, then back on. some jams only clear that way.

Misfeed Indicator light is on - there are no jamed copies present. Other solutions recommended. Thank you


Make sure that there isn't any little piece of paper caught near a sensor. Often when a jam is removed, the operator rips the paper, leaving some if it there inside. If it's near a sensor, you'll get a constant jam indication. Use a flashlight to check for it.

if it looks like an m or w it means there is a paper jam somewhere, most likely the fuser.
Open right side and look inside the copier, where it gets hot.
do you see a crumpled pice of paper there?
you may have to remove four screws to get the paper out

Misfeed indicator light stays on-printer not working


When ever there is a jam be sure to try and remove the jam without tearing the paper. If you do rip the paper piece it back together to assure you removed all of the jam. If there is one tiny scrap left and it lies across a sensor the jam will remain. Easier to happen than you may think.
