Do you have any flashing codes on the machine? I have seen empty toner cartridges with flakey chips on them cause that problem. Seems they run out of ink and the chip doesnt know what message to send and they just never come to ready.

Rom error in canon ir-1600 copier

Try this as a temporary work around, power on the iR while holding down the STOP key.
This may boot the iR to a ready state and copies can be made.

HI iM HAVING AN ISSUE WITH MY PRINTER AND I SEEM TO HAVE MISPLACED MY MANUAL. There is a ligh tnext to the green print button with a right side up check mark and an upside down check mark. What does it...

This is your pre-heat or energy save mode light. It means that the machine is in the energy save mode. This light goes off when you press the print button which will "wake up" the copier and bring it to a ready to copy state. It will remain ready for a minute or 2 after making your last copy then it will return to sleep mode. Sharp had to do this in order for the machine to qualify for the Energy Star rating.

How do i check copy count?

Hold down the "C" key for a few seconds. The page count will be displayed in 2 sets of numbers. Such as 026 then 003. This would indicate 26,003 copies. The machine must be in the ready to copy state.

Keep copier ready; disable powersave option

This is going to be a user program:
1) press and hold both light and dark keys
a) the 2 buttons to lighten and darken copies
b) hold both for 5 sec until indicators light up
2) use the left copy quantity key show 2
3) press your copy key
4) use the right quantity key to change to 2 (max 90 sec)
5) press the copy key

repeat step 2 but change to 3 with left quantity key
press the copy key
change right number to (4 = 60 min, 1 is default at 5 min) then press your copy key.
Once done press both light and dark key again to exit

Note*** changing shut off timer and preheat will effect copy lamp ready state. Every 60 sec or so the scanner will move and reset. Some people do not like the noise is makes all the time. If you don't you can always change it back to the defaults. 2=0 and 3=1.
