Question about Sharp AR-507 Copier

1 Answer

Can't install Hello, I'm trying to install our Sharp AR-507 printer on the network. I'm able to ping its IP, and I downloaded the PCL 5e drivers from Sharp. What installation settings should I be using? Nothing seems to work. They'll all install OK, but nothing prints. The only relevant information I get from the NIC page it spits out is the TCP/IP port number is 10001, which makes me think I should be installing as LPR and not RAW. Relatively new at printer installation though had success installing IP-networked printers before. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Actually, I just discovered I was wrong about that. The only reason I could ping that IP is because it was assigned to another computer (the NIC stat sheet the printer spat out said "duplicate address" by the IP).

    Now that it has its own IP, I can no longer ping it.

    The AR-507 is a large-scale copier/printer, if that makes a difference. I've installed several networked printers before through the add printer XP function with little difficulty, so this one's frustrating.

    Have checked the cable and it works. The back of the printer had a green light on the ethernet port even with nothing plugged in. Plugging the cable in doesn't change the lights and the second LED does not light up either. The FD/Col light on the router is not lit either, which should just mean it's not a full duplex system.

    OK, I got it. The IP address conflict was causing problems. I assigned a unique IP address to it, and somehow it works now. It seems the key was assigning port 10001 to the Raw setting with the unique IP. I swear I'd done this before. Anyway, it works!

If you can ping its IP, you have that part correct.
What you may be having is a firewall issue.
If your firewall protection is not allowing an exception for that IP address, you can ping the machine, yet the data being sent will be blocked.
I have seen this several times in setting up printers, you have to go into your firewall and set up an exception for the IP address on your firewall.
I suspect that is the issue. Not uncommon.

    Well have you checked the back of the machine where the Ethernet, cat5 or 6 cable that plugs into the machine. Are the green light and data lights on?

    and have you verified that the port you are plugging into are operational?

    And that the cable is good and not a crossover cable?

    Just some general thoughts.

  • Rick Kasper Jan 16, 2008

    Do you have a laptop to plug directly into the printer and see if that works?

    You have a dead connection for some reason.

    A laptop with a crossover cable directly connected would help to eliminate the network.

    Then you could work backwards.

    Yeah, easy to over look. Good for you.

Did you just install a NIC (aka ethernet port) in your copier?
To print Network Multi PDL Printer Kit C1 needs to be installed. This contains the NIC and the N Boot-Rom. The copier then needs to be upgraded with networked firmware using SST.
Go into Service Mode (Additional Functions > 2,8 > Additional Functions). Go to Copier > Display > Version. Check the number for BOOT-ROM. This should have a N at the end. If not you need to replace the C BOOT-ROM with a N BOOT-ROM.
Also under Copier > Display > Version check the number for PS/PCL. If this is blank then you don't have printer drivers installed on the copier. You will need to get a technician to come out and upgrade the firmware on the machine.

Printer is not geting my print commands

What driver are you using on your vista machine? It would be better to load a local printer on your laptop and create a standard TCP/IP port using the address everyone else is using and load the driver locally instead of network printer. Also if you are using a print server to make it networkable you probably need the GDI version of the print driver loaded not the PCL5 or 6. It can be downloaded from PCL driver only works if PCL Print option is installed on the device. This would also give you a nic port on the copier as well, so if you have print server you probably don't have that option. If you need more specific details let me know.

Hope this helps,

Missing graphics

Check the version of print driver. You want a PCL 5e driver, not the PCL6 or PS. Reinstall the print driver from the cd that came with your copier. If that does not fix, check the fonts and set them to downloadable and bitmap in the driver under the advanced tab.

No, but go to and search in the upper right corner search box for print driver. It will come up with a "click here to download drivers for your MFP". Select the AR-BC260, and you windows version and dowload the PCL 5C print driver. Run the downloaded file. You need to know the IP address of the copier first.
