Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Konica 1015 "Add Paper" prompt appears when feeding from any tray including the bypass or manual feed. It may be an indicator of a failing main motor - can't find one to purchase or even get a quote. Thanks. Tom

    No, I have not. What is the procedure?


  • Tom Schneider Feb 11, 2008

    Looking ahead, if the drum cleaning blade is "flipped" and toner recycling coil is clogged, what is the correction procedure. Answering this ahead of time will save me a trip to my customer's office.

    Thanks very much.

    That's a possibility.

    Have you tested the main motor?

Power on the machine while holding the 4 & 7 keys

hit the P then 40 then P again

Hit the print key

You should hear the main motor turning.

To exit the service mode, turn machine off.

FYI - this model (as well as the 1120) was notorious for the drum cleaning blades "flipping", and the toner recycling coil getting clogged, therefore binding up the drive mechanisms.

I personally have never had to replace a main motor on these.

If you need more help, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Actually, depending on the firmware version, you may not have to hit the "P" key.

    Just turn it on while holding the 4&7, enter "40" on the keypad, and hit print. Then press stop / clear to stop the motor.

    IF you can't hear the motor running, we can troubleshoot this further.

    All you will really need is the toner vacuum to give it a through cleaning.

    You will need to pull the drum carriage out (obviously).

    If the blade isn't damaged, you may be able to reuse it.

    I would bring a blade just in case - and a drum if you have one.

    Be sure to apply setting powder (or whatever method you use when replacing a drum / blade). Personally, I use a little bit of CRC silicone spray lubricant on a cloth, and buff the drum with it. I've heard of tech's using WD-40 - but in VERY small amounts. It will take 40-50 copies for the drum to "recover" from the buffing, but you can be sure the blade wont hang up on it.

    To narrow down the problem even more, use that test procedure with the drum carriage removed. Close the clam-shell as if the unit was in, and close the front door.

    If the motor turns without the drum carriage installed, then that's what is binding.

    NOTE: Do NOT try to run the machine in any other mode besides the 47 service mode mentioned! But i'm sure you already know that.

How do i print 6 3/4 return size envelopes on a sharp 2600n

You have to select the Manual Feed Tray by touching the picture of the copy machine on the LCD screen. That will then show you the paper trays. Touch the paper type soft key for the Bypass/Manual Feed Tray and then select envelope. then press ok a couple of times till you are back to the main screen. Put your envelopes face down on the Bypass/Manual Feed Tray. If you are printing from a computer do the same thing after you go to printing preference/properties.

Hi the machine could be defaulted to print from the main trays if you have the same type paper being fed from the manual feed same size paper then it will automatically take it from the default trays
IF you take the paper out of the trays and put it only in the manual feed will it print and take it from the manual feed also you have to tell the machine when you use the manual feed what size and type of paper is in the manual feed once you tell it what paper and type of paper like card stock you then need to make sure when you go to print that it is set on your computer with manual feed and type of paper must match what is set on machine

Sharp AL-800 Paper Feed

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!!

Can't print onto thick card

Have you tried specifying the paper type and weight INSTEAD of the tray. Set the tray properties first, then print. If you leave it on auto tray it will use the tray that matches your paper type and weight.
