There is a small white gear that drives the fuser module. It wears out at 30 to 40 thousand pages.
If the sound is a jumping to gringing noise that would be the problem.
That gear jumping will cause the machine to say out of paper,, jam,, give all kinds of problems from things bouncing around.

I have a Sharp AL-1631 Copier. The 'P' Light comes on indicating a paper jam, however when I open the machine there is no paper jammed. Any suggestions?

Check the dash and see if the lower tray is selected or the by-pass tray on the side. If the side tray is selected change to the bottom tray.

I had a paper jam.I cleared the jam. the misfed light is still blinking. doese this model have areset botton?

There is no reset button or switch. The reset is performed by opening and closing the right side door. Make sure there is not a sheet of paper just starting out of the tray. Also check the fuser gate. Sometimes these break. The rear side of the gate has a small tab that blocks a sensor. If the gate is out of position it will show a jam all the time. Just make sure the rear side tab is "in" the sensor housing. The gate looks like this:

Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Paper misfeed indicator light continues to blink even after paper

some machines will want all covers to be opened, then closed, for good reset. if you are having jams in the adf, then open all adf covers, and lift the adf upward, if it allows. also, try turning unit off, then back on. some jams only clear that way.

No Copies

It could possibly be your main charge assembly. If there is no charge on your drum, it can lead to blank copies.

Sharp AL-1641CS printer/copier

Most likely you had a toner cartridge failuer leaving some of the ink and developer in the crevices above the paper feeder and its just trickling onto the paper.
It pretty much needs to have the cartrides taken out and thouroghly vaccumed.
Just takes patience and time to get it all removed.
Dont vacuum the cartridges, but the inside of the machine.
Pull your paper tray out and see if there is toner and developer trickling into it.

Sharp AL-800 copier

If you check in the unit where the paper first leaves the paper tray, there is a small black lever called a sensor flag that should move freely in and out of a sensor led.Also one or two more inside the machine and where the paper exits the unit.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at
