Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a Sharp AR-287 copier/printer/fax/scanner that has jsut come out of storage into a new office. The copier works fine but I don't know how to reset the destinations for the scanner and add the device as a printer to our network. I don't have any CD's for printer drivers and only have the copier operators guide and manual. Can anyone help?

Input ar-287 for the downloads available.

You should be able to download anything found on the cd-rom and possibly more up to date 'drivers' and software for your copier/printer/fax/scanner including the manuals, etc.

I wish you luck on this one.

Sharp is a pretty good product.

Actually, to answer your question more directly, I think that once you install the device on your computer, the scanner function should show up in the control panel as a device.

You can also add the device as a printer to your network, but in Windows 7 you have to logon as an administrator or have administrator rights on the logon (not guest) name.

In windows 7 it's easy to share printers than in previous versions of windows, but it's all in the help section as to how to do this for printers and faxes.

You should be able to access and print to any printer online, as long as you approve of it in your permissions and allow it to be 'shared' with the 'share' option in the printer's control panel.

I hope this helps.

    Thanks Duane



    unfortunelty in trying to install the prineter (via the Add-Printer wizard) it does not see the printer on the network. The printer is plugged in and the "green" light by the network plug is on and steady.



    I'm guesssing I need to do something on the printer control pad but the operators manual only has details on the copy functions.



    I found a service manual on-line but that looks too detailed, and does not cover install instructions for printing/scanning.

We own a Sharp AR-M277 copier, scanner, fax machine that we use on our network. The scanner feature worked great, however, after 500 scans it stopped working. Someone told us that it was just a trial &...


The machine was put in a demo mode for scanning. What you will need to do, is contact an authorized Sharp dealer and purchase an MX-NSX2 kit and that will enable scanning and also purchase you a copy of a program called Sharpdesk.

Sharp AR-287 Copier Paper Jam


most copiers that have lcd screens, should you show you where the paper is. sometimes it may take getting down to look under a couple of guide plates. or just roll some of the rollers to get the paper to come out. all it takes a minute piece of paper to be sitting on a sensor for it to throw the paper jam message.

H4 for an error code on all Sharps indicates that the fusing temperature isn't correct. It needs to have a new thermistor installed or the heating lamps need to be replaced.
