We can not clear the paper jam error. We have cleared the paper jam, turned the unit on and off, unplugged the unit, moved all the rollers, can not see any pieces of paper that are still in the misfeed but...

This copier has 4 sensor
1. paper sensor
It is called paper sensor its installed paper tray
2.Drawer sensor
3. Drive sensor its installed middle position
4. Exit sensor it is in fuser unite.
May be any sensor displace or broken.So you should check it.
Good luck.

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:

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.

Trust this is helpful. Please vote. :)

There is a red arrow light flashing at the upper feeder area. What does that mean?

There is a paper misfeed so check for a jammed paper inside the copier.

We have a Sharp 1641CS copier will not feed or copy

Well one reason the Cartirdge is spilling is due to the cartridge backing up with toner everytime it tries to print, it misfeeds cause the paper feed tires need to be replaced,

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

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.

there is most likely a small piece of paper on a sensor/

remove paper tray and look inside, is there paper behind the tray? look at the tires are they bald and sniny? replace. Look at the tires and see if there is any scrap of paper there.
open right door and look down towards the paper tray, do you see any pieces of paper? there is a small black lever there, it's the sensor is it stuck?
look into the fuser (where it gets hot) ,you may have to remove it the paper sometimes gets crumbled like an accordion there, htere is also a small black lever there see any paper is it stuck?

Paper Misfeed Problem

When you close the doors does the message disappear? If so then the paper pickup roller is worn. Open the cassette remove all paper apart from one sheet. Spray a alcohol based cleaned on the leading edge of the paper. Try and do a copy this will issue a jam and also clean the pickup roller. repeat a few times then clean out the cassette and dry off place new paper in the cassette and try. Also there maybe a piece of paper behind the cassette. Remove cassette and reach in and remove paper lodged at back.

Thanks Jason
