Re: AK-1631 Copier

"H" indicates a fuser heating error. There's not much you can do about it other than take it to a professional for service, as this is a complex repair and deals with the heating section of the copier. It actually heats up to around 180 degrees to melt the toner and press it into the paper. These machines are very touchy on this, because if anything will catch on fire in your copier, it is more than likely the fuser,. Therefore they monitor the temperature very closely to ensure no problems will occur.

We can not find the manual on our Sharp AL-1631 copier. At first the light (shaped like a Z) came on to the left of the green button and we turned off the machine and now that light is off but a flashing...

The flashing red triangle which should look like a stack of dots is your toner cartridge empty indicator. You will need to replace the toner cartridge with a full one or have your existing one refilled. A manual for this discontinued machine will be difficult to find.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Sharp AL 1631 is flashing 1 L. What does that


This might refer to your scanner assy being locked. The scanner assy is the unit under the glass that scans your document prior to copying it. Look inside the cavity where you pick up your completed copies. Look at the upper left corner and see if there is a knob there. If there is, make sure it is in the completely unlocked position.

Fuser is not heating up. Normally a broken bulb.

Unless you can get hold of spares, call the engineer.

Sharp AL-1631 - would not copy.

Your unit definetly needs a new drum. The usual yield for this consumable is upt ot 15,000 pages, so at the stated rate, the unit yielded more than average. AL-1000 series share the same toner and drum, so finding remanufactured (or recycled) drum units should be no problem. In Puerto Rico, they are sold for about $79.00.
