Re: copies

I can't remember but there should be a button with the name above it No. of Copies press this then you will be able to enter 1-99 copies. The energy saver you can adjust within the menu to longer or not come on at all. This will be in your manual.

Thanks J

I have a Sharp AL-1655CS and when i make copies, the copies are really dark. For example, the white areas come out gray and dark. How can I fix this problem?

I would try a different toner cartridge or possibly a drum cartridge. Have you had the machine serviced at all? When?

Toner save mode
Reduces toner consumption by approximately 10%.
Power save modes
The unit has two power save modes of operation: preheat mode and auto power
shut-off mode.
Preheat mode
When the unit enters the preheat mode, the power save indicator will light up
and other indicators will remain on or off as before. In this condition, the fuser in
the unit is maintained at a lower heat level, thereby saving power. To copy from
the preheat mode, make desired copier selections and press the start key
using the normal copying procedure.
Auto power shut-off mode
When the unit enters the auto power shut-off mode, the power save ( ) indicator
will light up and other indicators except the ONLINE indicator will go out. The auto
power shut-off mode saves more power than the preheat mode but requires a
longer time before starting copying. To copy from the auto power shut-off mode,
press the start key. Then make desired copier selections and press the star key using the normal copying procedure.
Auto clear
The unit returns to the initial settings a preset amount of time after the end of copy, or
scanner job. This preset amount of time (auto clear time) can be changed.
Stream feeding mode
For description of the stream feeding mode, see "Stream feeding mode".
Resolution of AUTO & MANUAL mode
You can set the copy resolution used for AUTO and MANUAL ( ) exposure

I own a Sharp Al-1655CS about 2 yrs old, I have a problem, the balck toner powder is exiting the back of the machine and copies are very light. The copy count shows 12,000 copies made. I have repalced the...

These are very good machines so I would see no reason to replace it. Do you have the operators manual? If so look up the setting for "toner save mode" and make sure it is NOT turned on.
The drum unit is good for at least 18,000 pages so I would not suspect the drum. I even reset the counters on the drum units and can get up to 36,000 pages on them. Do you have the machine hooked to a PC for printing? If so is there any difference between printer density and copy density? If so then the issue is with the scanner density setting. If the copy and prints are both light then it is a print engine problem. If several toner cartridges are doing the same light print then I would suspect that your laser scanner optics are dirty. There is a narrow strip or slot just above the drum unit that the laser beam goes thru to write the image onto the drum. This should be cleaned and then the machine re-tested. If no improvement is see then the machine will have to be dis-assembled and cleaned which would require a compentant service technician.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Makes noise and will not copy

Check the scan head lock. It can easily be locked or unlocked. It is used to protect the moving parts inside the machine when it is moved/transported. Someone in our office was just making copies and ttapping their fingers on it and they locked it without even realizing it. it is under the top of the machine where the paper comes out. sometimes they are a slide or turn knob.
