Re: very old sharp z55 copier won't copy
It is most like a fuser error code. Do you see the heating lamp turn "On", If yes, it could be the thirmister. If dose not turn "On" it could be the thermal fuse or the fuser heating lamp.. The code will not reset till the problem is repaired.

Hi, noise means there is a problem with the copier mechanical parts however, yours appears to be a problem with copying area. This is caused by waste toner being full in its container and mostly machines also display triangle sign while making this noise. Solution
Open front cover and pull-out the toner cartridge.
Carefully push open a notch with a spring on the side marked with green color and empty waste toner. If its hard to come out, use a flat screwdriver to scratch inside of waste toner compartment to loosen its grains then empty to the last dust. You can tilt the container upside down while holding the opening open and hitting gently on its side.
If not able, you can open the 6 screws supporting this holder and empty it. Note how it locks while replacing to avoid damaging the unit.
This triangle means that the toner supply is needed. It comes first as a steady triangle meaning toner is running low and eventually flashing triangle which means toner is completely empty and copy cannot run. There are two methods of replacing toner ; Refilling and cartridge replacing.
You can refill by opening the waste container and then removing the lid on the unit. Use a sprout provided in Sharp Al1000 toner bottle or improvise by folding a paper into a funnel shape.
For cartridge , pullout the old cartridge and replace with a Sharp Al100td cartridge.
Hi, this triangle means that the toner is empty. This can also be caused by a defective developer unit drive gears. Check that it is okay if not replace the gears. Replace the toner cartridge or refill the toner in its unit. Make sure you empty the waste on its side as it may cause some noise or toner spills. Use cartridge Sharp Al100td or refill with Sharp Al1000 toner bottle. All the best.
Where the toner bottle inserts into the holder, make sure the OLD bottles nipple is not stuck in there, this issue will not allow the new toner to flow into the system and the machine thinks it has an empty bottle
If the signs that is blinking red which is shape like triangle , it is the toner cartridge indicator. The toner cartridge is empty.Try to pullout and check the toner cartridge, if it is light in weight it is already empty.
the problem in your machine is on the drum unit there is a arching on the mc unit.located in the upper portion of the drum unit.if you have an old drum unit try to install it again just for testing.and check if ther is a dumping toner again.
those dots mean toner, when they blink it's empty. replace the toner cartridge. open the front door and pull it out. pull the seal on the new toner and slide it in. shut the door. that was easy! Good Luck!
