Sharp al 1655 false paper jam message,

Hi, all you fellow techs. I have a sharp al 1655 false paper jam. I went into diagnostic to test the three sensors in the paper path. I have checked to see if the scan is under the white strip(this causes false jams) I think that it may need a new pwb. As soon as it warms up and right before it starts to scan (motor turns over) it goes to paper jam mssg. It clears when I open jam door, until I push start, imediate pjm. help thanx arnie

Re: sharp al 1655 false paper jam message,

Check that the paper feed roller is clean as if the roller slips it causes a late paper pickup jam but nothing will be in there also maybe a small torn piece in the machine some where. and check the fuser make sure that is it not stuck in there if no to all these then is will need a control board.

Thanks J

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

Papaerjam lite stays on, no paper jam

It is possible that there may still be a small piece of paper blocking or lodged in the exit sensor area. It is also possible that when removing the jammed paper that the sensor arm became dislodged and thus creating a false jam code.

False Paper Jam

There could be a paper jam or some other obstruction preventing the printhead holder mechanism from moving back and forth.You must check the entire print path to confirm it..You can easily dismantle all of the covers with just pressing hard at specified points...A clip,popcorn, candy etc.will also obstruct the print head..If you want help rempoing the cover let me know i wil guide you..

Paper Jam Message

Where is it saying the paper jam is located? Do you have a service code? It sounds as if either a paper pass switch is stuck in the down position (meaning it thinks there's a piece of paper there), or you may have a sheet of paper stuck in the fuser or behind a guide plate. Check on these and let me know!
