Question about Sharp AR-407 Copier

1 Answer

Copy to 11x17

I'm trying to copy 11x17 - only scans 81/2x11 size unless I use bypass tray - tried to adjust settings in key operator for size setting for extra and selected extra for both trays but still only copies 1/2 the page. How do I adjust the settings for the trays to match the paper size - message says to check paper size indicator for tray, thought that's what size setting was. Could someone provide some insight on this?

Bypass tray has correct paper size but gives error message to add correct paper size. Won't print


Once you have the message, try removing the paper from the bypass tray, then introducing it again. Alternatively, leave the tray empty then send the data, when it asks for paper, introduce your 11 x 7, and it should work.

How do I get the printer to print automatically using the bypass tray


you can set the bypass tray the size you want then set paper size setting in the printer driver at your PC.

Hold down the [PAPER SIZE ENTER] key more than 5 seconds to
set the selected paper size.
The currently selected paper feed location indicator will blink and the
corresponding paper size (which is currently set) indicator will light
steadily.

All other indicators will go out.
If the machine has two paper trays, use the [TRAY SELECT] key to
select the paper tray for which you wish to change the paper size
setting.

Each time the [TRAY SELECT] key is pressed, a paper tray will be
indicated with a blinking paper feed location indicator.
Use the [ORIGINAL SIZE ENTER] key to select the paper size you want to set.
The indicator of the selected paper size lights up.

Press the [START] key and then the [PAPER SIZE ENTER] key.
To change the paper size setting of another tray, repeat steps
after pressing the [START] key

Make sure that the tray's paper size setting is the same as the tray's
paper size setting in the printer driver. For example, if the tray's paper
size setting is A4R (LT-R), set "Setting Paper Size" to "A4-R".

How do i set it to print 11x17. It jams everytime and will not print to that size


Hello :-)
Please open the paper supply tray you wish to use. At the very front of the tray, to the right, you will see a blue dial. This dial is used to tell the copier what size paper it can expect to be fed. You can put many sizes of paper in the tray, but the blue dial MUST match the size that truly is in the tray. If ,for example, the blue dial is set at "LETTER" but the paper in the tray is 11x17, the copier will look at the dial setting and expect the paper to have passed its paper path sensors in a certain amount of time. So if the dial says 8.5x11 and the actual sheet of paper fed just keeps on moving by the sensors (11x17) the copier freaks and treats it as a paper jam assuming it has fed multiple sheets. Happy New Year to you and yours! :-)

minumum size for the bypass is 3.5x5.5 and max is 11x17
minimum, for the paper trays is 5.75x8.25 and the max is11.5x16.5
so it should run 5.5x14 in the bypass tray
1 load the paper in the bypass tray
2 in the basics screen touch paper
3 select the button for the bypass tray
4 touch change setting
5 select custom size and program the size

Paper Error


The paper lift housing is cracked. The clicking noise is made by the lift gears skipping teeth.
It needs to be serviced...in the mean time, you might try feeding 11 x 17 paper through the manual feeder (bypass tray). Or if you need many 11 x 17 copies, it is possible to set another paper drawer to 11 x 17 size...just set the plastic tag in the front of cassette to LD so the machine knows what size of paper to expect (if tag is set incorrectly, machine will jam EVERY TIME)

Cannot change paper size in drawers


Few things check, first if the paper trays have manual adjustable levers that tell the printer what type of paper is in the tray. The other option is to go to your printer menu from your operating system and check paper assginment on settings.

Cannot reduce size from 11x17 to letter


The NP6551 is an analogue copier, using only mirrors and lenses. It has no way of rotating the image. If you want to reduce a 11x17 to a 8.5x11 both peices of paper need to be fed in the same direction, ie short edge first. Change one of your trays to LTR-R ('R' for Reduction) or feed the LTR paper in thru the bypass in the long direction. If you use te bypass you must specify the paper size as LTR-R, you cannot use FREE.
