L6 is a Polygon Motor Lock You could try to reset the machine with a simulation code 14, which to perform it: 1. Push Clear, Auto, Clear, Auto in a steady rythmic fashion. If done correctly the screen will go blank and all the lights will turn off. If done incorrectly wait 15 seconds then try again. Clear is the red "C" and auto is on the left hand side, the word auto directly above the button.
2. Once you're into this mode enter the number 14 as if you were doing 14 copies then push the green copy key.
If the L6 returns after the reset then you will need service on the machine, Sharp will fix it for a flat rate charge of $140.00 for parts and labor out of warranty. Give them a call 1800 237 4277 in this case.

L6 code means the motor is not working. You need to replace that, which means replacing the entire laser module. They can be gotten cheaper used from your local sharp dealer. I know this because I work on these things every day, being a certified sharp tech. L6 code means motor lock or motor sense dead, not necessarily laser dead.

The error code happens because the fusing temperature isn't getting to the right setting in time. No reset code is available for the fuser unit. It could be the thermistor that has gone bad with it but usually on this machine it's better to get the whole fuser assembly replaced.
