Scanning is not possible thru the parallel port. You must use the USB1.1 port in order to use the scanning feature.
The parallel port is only used for printing.
If you hook up the machine with a USB cable you can print and scan using USB. This includes color scanning.
Thank You for using Fixya.

Is there an interface to make this a printer


You will need to use a Parallel Cable to connect this copier to a computer. Many newer computers do not have parallel connections - so you may have to purchase a USB to parallel cable to get the job done for you.

I found a link to the manual for this copier here: http://www.manualowl.com/m/Sharp/AL-800/Manual/212853

Hope that helps!

Makes a grinding noise near the drum. Copier works, but makes a "gear-grinding" noise near the drum area. Can't tell what's doing it.


Un load the drum unit, check the drum/s gear, is it wear off, if so change it along with the drum's drive gear at machine base, check also the gears of developing unit

Scanner problem


Try uninstalling and reinstalling the scannner. Scanner's can be tough. Try disconnecting USB cable and reconnecting too. How recently did the scanner work? Try reinstalling the scanner software/driver. Also see if you can trouble shoot by right clicking on scanner icon from control panel, scanner.
repost if none of these work. thanks.

Goggle download program for Sharp AL-1540CS. This should take you to a site that will download the program for you. I recently got a new Vista computer and did this to hook up my old printer on it. It worked fine.
Good Luck
