    I appreciate your help, I just don't know where the heating lamp is, or the thermal fuse . Maybe you could give me an idea where to look. Thanks again, Graceland2

    Thanks again,I found the fuser/fixing unit and gigled it around

    a little and the flashing H went away.and the copier will copy.

    Now there is another problem, when it copies, there are big black blotches and it looks like it copies twice. I can see the top part of copy 2x on top and in the middle.. copies are not useable. does this in anyway relate to the fuser, it didn't do that before. You see I moved it.I took in the car to my brothers.Thanks a million for your help. Graceland2

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.

    Basicly the fuser/ fixing unit is the last section that the paper comes out of and it should get hot to the touch. Everthing is in the top half of that unit. Use a ohm meter to test the heating lamp and fuse. Good Luck...

    The problem with the fixing unit is that the heating lamp contacts are most likely coroded a bit. With the other problem try to run a few blank page though the copy and dose it clean up any? Has the copier been seatting for a while? You may need a new drum blade or a upper fixing roller. Try to stop the copy copy before it gets to the fixing unit. If is there then it is most likely something to do with the drum unit or the developer unit... Good Luck

    What kind of mouse is it? Did you try to clean the roller ball on the bottom with windex so it rolls easier? Also, did you try to reload the soft ware that drives the mouse and also, go into your control pannel and click on the mouse icon and set your of your mouse to your liking. Good Luck... If that is not the cure try the bounce test......

Sharp AR 5320 Xerox machine is noisy now when am making copies more than 10.


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.

The red tringle light is on. What is wrong?


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.
Nice time.

I have a red triangle flashing and the copier sounds like it is trying to warm up and then does nothing. what is going on?


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.

I replaced the Sharp AL-1642CS TD toner cartridges twice. Still flashes the toner symbol. Someone mentioned cleaning the toner sensor. Where is the toner senor located? drjanisch


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
