Tractor feet worn

I have two ar-150n sharp machines in home use. How easy is it to obtain and change the tractor feet that pick up the paper? I am wasting too much paper because the feet are worn. i have cleaned them with alcohol but it is not a longterm solution.

My sharp ar122en copier cannot load paper, please

Does loading mean picking papers? If so remove the paper tray and rotate the semi-circular rubbers . Clean them with a clean damp cloth and return the tray loaded with papers.

My copier AR-M208 won't pick up paper from tray 2 It starts too then nope it says its jamed but not really, we open side door and tray close both then it will copy one or two pages the stop again

It may be that either the feed rollers in that drawer are dirty or worn out and need replacement. You might also want to ensure that there is no dogeared paper in that drawer. Meaning that the edges of the stack are all nice and even, no corners bent over.

Wrinkled paper

Many possibilities can cause this....

The Pick Up Rollers could be worn out and not picking the paper up correctly.

Something blocking, or catching in the paper path

The Fuser unit rollers could be sticking, going bad..

The Exit Delivery could be warped, cracked.
After these machines get old, the heat from Fuser unit causes the delivery Exit to melt, warp, and become extremely brittle.

The simple things you can check your self:
Entirely remove the paper tray, look in the copier where the paper tray slides in, look in side the machine where the paper tray goes, make certain there is nothing in the trays path.

Take the paper out of the paper tray, go through the paper make certain there is no crumbled paper in the tray, it should lay flat and even in the tray...

My favorite, check the paper it self.

I once was at a customer whom recently changed their paper supplier; every 10th piece of paper was creased from the new **** of paper. I found that the entire Box of paper had creases in every ****. It was the paper not the machine. It was pre-wrinkled.

Error Code F1-87 Finisher Trouble on Sharp AR-M350U+

It is a stapler rotation error. The stapling tray pressure arms become dull at the tips, so when the stapler attempts to move into position to make the staple it cannot move the guides out of the way.

First choice) Replace the (4) stapling tray pressure arms (LSTPP0357FCZZ). After you replace them you'll see that the tips get worn down, and wedge into place so that the black support plates cannot move out of the way of the stapler. The black plates look warped, but they aren't (I should say they always look like that).

They are fairly easy to get to. You do have to remove the finisher from the copier. Remove the front and rear covers. Open the right door. Pull the pins that retain the door. From there you'll see the arms. They can be changed with a little maneuvering.

2nd Choice) Clip overtight wire ties to the stapler rotation home position sensor.

3rd Choice) Shake down the stapler to its bottommost position (wherever it settles is fine). Adjust the flag that triggers the stapler home position sensor. If I remember correctly its the narrow **** in the flag.

Sharp AR-150N error code E7

The E7-02 is a laser unit problem. I do not know the part number for the laser sync motor but you and just replace that instead of the whole laser unit ( alot cheaper). If I can find that part number I will get it to you. Remember , if you do replace the motor, replace in as clean and still air area as possible. If something gets into the area of the laser/motor, it could scratch one of the lens on the laser head and it would be trashed.

Usually, it flashes "P" in the display for Paper.
Either the paper tray is empty or the feed rollers tried to pull the paper out of the tray and it failed.
If there is paper in the tray, then the feed rollers might be dirty or worn.
Try cleaning the roller with something like Fantastic, or a multi purpose cleaner.
And see if that helps. IF the rollers are worn, then they would need to be replaced in order to get your machine back to normal.

Hope this helps.
Good luck.
Mac =)
