Question about Sharp AL 800 Copier

Sharp AL-800 Paper Feed

The paper no longer will feed into my Sharp AL-800 copier. It appears the wheels are not even turning on the back of the unit. Paper just sits and the "P" light come on. Removal and replacement of paper turns off light. Then same thing. Every 4th or 5th try, paper will feed in about 1/2 of the way and the machine will stop. Every 10th time or son, paper feeds fine.

Why isn't the feed wheel turning and grabbing the paper?

    Thanks....it is a problem that has been gradually getting worse. It is now to the point of not working hardly at all.

    I will try the WD-40.

    I am not sure I have a bypass tray....there is nothing in the owners manual about this either?

Is this something that has been getting worse or just happen at once? If it just appeared it good be something in the paper tray stopping it from liftting or something behind the paper tray or in the paper path of the copier. If it has been slowly happen try to clean the paper pickup rollers with WD-40 and a rag and clean the rubber only. If that works you done, but if it say's to add paper you may have a broken paper present sensor. The jams could also be the paper feed clutch is worn out. Worse case use the bypass tray. Good Luck!!

Sharp AL-1631 bottom paper feed will not pick up paper.


A few things could be the problem.
  1. The paper in tray could be damaged
  2. The drawer separator pawls (metal taps on the right side of tray where paper touches)
  3. Paper backstop not in or in wrong spot (green plastic piece at back of paper)
  4. Feed tires are worn or dirty
Does the copier try and feed from tray 2? If it tries but the paper doesn't leave the try look and see if there is a dark mark on the page (top middle towards the right). If so then most likely the feed tire is worn.

You probably have a paper jam in the auto feed unit. Open the auto feed and check for bunched up paper and if you don't find any open the side doors and check for paper jams there. Let me know what you find.

AL-800 cannot make copies jam light remains on with no jams


First, is the paper being fed at all? If the paper is being fed and jams at the same location then a senor, actuator or switch is bad, out of place or broken. If the device will not clear the jam light, completely power down the device, unplug from wall, let set about 30 sec. to 1 min. and then replug in and see if it reset. If the device did not reset then again a senor, actuator, or switch is out of position ( being held up in the paper path). If the paper does not feed at all then the feed section is the problem. Clean the feed tire (s) the rubber restorer or a high alcohol base cleaner. Listen to hear if the feed tire (s) are even turning. If feed is not turning then it could be clutch, motor or board problem.

AL- 1540 CS PAPER WILL NOT FEED CORRECTLY


This is usually caused by a bad Fuser unit.

Does it happen all the time?

Did you take the Toner/Cartridge out and check if there is some paper debris in side?

Paper Jam Message


Where is it saying the paper jam is located? Do you have a service code? It sounds as if either a paper pass switch is stuck in the down position (meaning it thinks there's a piece of paper there), or you may have a sheet of paper stuck in the fuser or behind a guide plate. Check on these and let me know!
