Ive recently repaired an f1 finisher for an IR5000. However, when I rebuilt it, powered up the copier, and ran test copies, the paper jam had been fixed, but it will not staple. The carriage goes to the correct position when telling it which corner to staple to, but does not complete the process. I have switched the carriage for a known good one off of another finisher, and have taken the staple cassette out and removed the sheet of staples that was being currently fed. There is no error code given, the multiple copies are collated together, and there is a pause where the stapling should be, but none is being done.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This was a common problem with these finishers. It has to do with the stapler unit rotation binding up as it moves into the stapler compiler. Even if you don't use the stapler, it still does a diagnostic test at power on. Here is a cheap easy fix that usually works. First you need to open the finisher front door where the staple unit is located. Remove the white inner cover of the finisher that you gain access to the stapler through-about 5 screws. You will see a blue solonoid in the upper right hand corner. There are tick marks etched into the metal frame, take note of the position of the solonoid to these marks. To adjust the solonoid, open the door on the right side the paper exits and look at the back of the frame where the solonoid sits. You should see two small phillips screws about 2 to 3 inches apart. Loosen them and change the position of the solonoid referencing the tick marks. This will change the angle the guide hits the stapler compiler, which is usually the cause of these error codes. I would not recommend spending 700 dollars to try and have this problem fixed, because after some time it will come back. You can also try opening the right finisher door and look down into the finisher. You will see two belts and two plastic fingers about 4 inches long with a point on the end. Take some fine sand paper or a small file and file down the back bottom side of those fingers. It is a tight fit to get back behind them. You want to remove any small nicks in the plastic that have formed by the stapler guide hitting them. Good Luck
Its only because I care about folksthat I answer questions like this since the chances of have my score diminishing is so great when the feedback rolls in.Ok,gut check tells me you have a different(less capable) stapler(finisher).The old standard has been upper left corner. then came the "zoom" stapler that could move to most anywhere to provide stapling on LTRR and legal.I bet you have a NEW and improved copier, but the finisher has less capabillities.Ask for the old finisher back if thats an option.The old finisher SHOULD interface with your new copier. I hope I helped.... ! :-)
Dirty sensor inside finisher, blow whole thing out with air. Sensors look like small black c-shaped with connector with three to four wires. Dust dirt block when not supposed to be blocked. Shutter open sensor does not turn on when the #2 feed motor has been rotated CCW for 1 second.
It is a stapler rotation error. The stapling tray pressure arms become
dull at the tips, so when the stapler attempts to move into position to
make the staple it cannot move the guides out of the way.
First choice) Replace the (4) stapling tray pressure arms
(LSTPP0357FCZZ). After you replace them you'll see that the tips get
worn down, and wedge into place so that the black support plates cannot
move out of the way of the stapler. The black plates look warped, but
they aren't (I should say they always look like that).
They are fairly easy to get to. You do have to remove the finisher from
the copier. Remove the front and rear covers. Open the right door. Pull
the pins that retain the door. From there you'll see the arms. They can
be changed with a little maneuvering.
2nd Choice) Clip overtight wire ties to the stapler rotation home position sensor.
3rd Choice) Shake down the stapler to its bottommost position (wherever
it settles is fine). Adjust the flag that triggers the stapler home
position sensor. If I remember correctly its the narrow **** in the
F1-70 is communication trouble between the machine and the sorter finisher. Check the cables connecting the copier and the finisher and power off and on machine. Should clear the code. If problem persists, may need a new board.
I would also check the ground between the copier and finisher.
