    I bought this copier at a yard sale and I dont have the sorter. Is there any way I can use it without the sorter or can I find this part cheap?

The error code F1-00 means the machine has lost communication with the sorter (paper sorter). You need to check the sorter and verify it's not overloaded or installed properly. Restart the machine after you've reseated the sorter or have checked the sorter. If there's no internal issue like physically damaged or etc..etc.. then this will definitely clear the error and you'll be able to continue with your work.

If this doesn't fix, then you need to call a Sharp Qualified technician or a Copier technician, to check inspect it personally. Otherwise it'll not be able to find out the culprit.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

    I wish I could show you the picture of the sorter, but I couldn't find one. Anyway, it's the Unit of the Machine which collects the printed paper before they are send to the stapler for stapling. You can refer to the user manual (click here to download), Open the link and click "Agree" download will automatically start once you click "Agree". The Sorter Unit is on Page No.52 (20 pins sorter). If you have any problem downloading the file, (click here) open the link, click "Download" in the middle of the page, just above the Monitor and then "Agree".




    If you need further help, let me know.




    Once again Good luck.

    Yes, actually it's optional and you can run the machine without the staples or without the sorter. But since you are getting an error message related to Sorter, there must be internal problem (as the sorter is absent). You can try re-seating the trays, cartridges, drum and the fuser unit.


    I am not sure how you'll be able to find a spare or a Sorter, but it's available at almost all Sharp Stores. Since we are in different countries,(I guess you are in the u.s.) I can't tell anything about that.


    But if this is the first time you are using the machine, then i would recommend the seller from whom you bought it. Maybe he know the condition of the machine and might still have the sorter as well.




    This is all what I know about copier and I have no more knowledge to proceed further since I can't inspect the machine personally. But if you still prefer to get more help/assistances, you can still invite another expert.




    Good luck.

Our nonprofit got a sharp sf-2040 donated. It prints a too light of a copy. I tried to replace toner it was full. No keys or directions light up - does it need a new drum or something.....??


There are several solutions to this problem:
1. Adjust the exposure
2. The drum may be out.
3. The developer may be out.
4. Finally, You may need a PM for the copier. (replace the drum, developer, drum blade)

It's hard to be sure because our model numbers are different but drum reset should be 24-7 and dev reset should be 24-6. Good luck
