Re: Sharp AR-162 Laser Unit

Hi, the laser unit is situated under panel where the copies come out. Replacing the unit requires removing the front op's panel and sliding the panel out. the unit is held in with four screws, rear ones can be tricky, unplug and replace.

According our service manual 'L6" sub code 10 is laser drive, motor, problem, replace laser unit . the laser unit item# is DUNTK0013QSZZ, it located at left hand side of the toner cartridge inside the machine. or it may be mostly due to Polygon mirror motor not up to speed... You may be able to air it out and fix the problem.

The L6 code is flashing on my copier

No you can't, it is the polygon motor not rotating. It is inside of the Laser unit. You should replace the polygon motor. The part code is RMOTN0028QSZZ. It will cost you about US$ 80

Hi Gunawan,
The error 'L6' is usually an indication of problems with the Laser Unit in the copier.
Unfortunately the unit will have to be replaced and can only be done by trained personnel.
Contact your closest Sharp Dealer for assistance.

Sharp AR-M280U

L6-10 will be a polygon mirror motor error, (a multi-sided mirror that rotates in a similar way as a hard drive spins. writes laser data to the drum) .When this code comes up it usually indicates that the motor is locked. You will need a new polygon motor , most techs would change the entire laser unit.
Sorry but It will have to be serviced professionally.

The L6 code means trouble with the laser unit ( polygon motor), it has to be replaced. The laser unit is under the exit tray. Hope this helps.
