Question about Sharp AR-M450N Copier
The problem is related to fuser (the fuser is the black-rectangular box in the upper part of the body. You'll be able to see it when you open the left-hand side of the door). It's possible that there's overheating problem with the fuser roller. On many cases, this error displays when there's something blocking on the fuser unit.
If there's no hardware defect, you can easily fix it. Remove the fuser, check for any foreign objects like pieces of paper, thread, hair, etc.. if so clear them. Clean the unit with brush or whatever you think is good and suitable. Reinstall it. Reboot the machine and check if this helps or not.
If the problem persists, you need to reset the machine.
Let me know when you are done.
Thanks for using FixYa.

The code means the fuser is not heating up. The fuser is used to melt the toner onto the paper to make the image. It applies heat and pressure to the toner once it is transferred to the paperto create a permanent image. It is what makes the paper warm when it gets out of the laser printer. The toner is composed of a hot-roll and a back-up roller. The fuser is not user serviceable and is recommended to be serviced by an authorized and qualified technician to prevent incurring further damage to the machine.

That code signifies that the fuser is not heating up properly. Sometimes this error can be reset by a tech, other times the fuser has to be replaced. Unfortunately there are no service manuals on the web for your unit, so unless you have a reasonable amount of experience in repairing copy machines you'll have to contact your local Sharp tech to diagnose and resolve your issue.
