Use SIM 3-3 to check lift motor. To enter SIM mode press P * C * Is the tray installed so it hits the sensor on the right side? If the tray doesnt hit the sensor it can cause error. To reset machine use SIM 14.

F1-00 lost communication with the finisher, check the connection between the copier and the finisher. Shut the machine off, reset the connector then restart the machine.

SOURCE: Error Code F1-87 Finisher Trouble on Sharp AR-M350U+

It is a stapler rotation error. The stapling tray pressure arms become dull at the tips, so when the stapler attempts to move into position to make the staple it cannot move the guides out of the way.

First choice) Replace the (4) stapling tray pressure arms (LSTPP0357FCZZ). After you replace them you'll see that the tips get worn down, and wedge into place so that the black support plates cannot move out of the way of the stapler. The black plates look warped, but they aren't (I should say they always look like that).

They are fairly easy to get to. You do have to remove the finisher from the copier. Remove the front and rear covers. Open the right door. Pull the pins that retain the door. From there you'll see the arms. They can be changed with a little maneuvering.

2nd Choice) Clip overtight wire ties to the stapler rotation home position sensor.

3rd Choice) Shake down the stapler to its bottommost position (wherever it settles is fine). Adjust the flag that triggers the stapler home position sensor. If I remember correctly its the narrow **** in the flag.

How to change settings to tell Sharp MX2300 that it no longer has a finisher/stapler unit.

Does it show the finisher onscreen? or are we just talking about when printing to it.

once you unplug the wire harness for the finished and power cycle the machine using the main power switch it should no longer display a finisher on the screen.

You need to change the configuration of the print drivers on your computer to remove finishing options when printing. right click on the copier in your devices and printers and go to printer properties. Go to the configuration tab, and click the button for auto configure. some little fingers will pop up and tell you what to select click ok and then apply.

Let me know if you are still having problems

Why do i get a error code c1105 on my bizhub c554e and how do i fix it

Sorry your having trouble. Your code suggest you have an optional KM FS-534-535 finisher attached to your copier. The code is triggered by an internal part within the finisher and should be thoroughly inspected only by a certified factory trained service technician. I would suggest you contact your local repair company.
Attempting to resolve this issue on your own could produce negative results.

I am assuming you have a finisher attached to the left side of the machine as this code deals with the finisher. Specifically the C1183 code means there is a problem with the elevator lift motor. Check the trays on the finisher and make sure they are fully inserted in the finisher. Turn the machine off then back on again. If the code returns you will need to contact a service company as there is a drive problem in the finisher.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have a Sharp AR 407 copy machine and when I turn it on it displays an F1-11 error code. Please help me. I work for a nonprofit and we really can't afford to pay someone to fix it. Thank you!

The problem is in your finisher and the quickest solution to get your copier running is to unplug the finisher and move it away from the copier. Take a tray off the finisher and put it on the copier where the paper comes out. (If the paper comes out too slow and causes a misfeed the tension springs need to be put back on over the exit rollers in the left door, write if you still have trouble)

The Engrish service manual sayeth:
F1-11: Finisher 1 pusher motor trouble/Finisher 2 boomerang rotation abnormality.

What this doublespeak means is that something is blocking your motor's ability to function when it goes through its' power on self test. First thing you should never do is put anything near, around, or under the finisher. I went on a lot of calls for F1 errors and either unjammed a finisher from the wall or unstuck a toner or paper box from under the tray. Next thing is to open the front door, move the plate from side to side, and look for bits of paper wedged in anywhere. Spray any photoelectric sensor you see with a can of air. And check those squishy orange rollers and see if they're swollen. Could be you have a dead motor, which would be at the rear of the finisher or inside one of the trays. Good luck!!

Copier problem - service code F1-70

F1-70 is communication trouble between the machine and the sorter finisher. Check the cables connecting the copier and the finisher and power off and on machine. Should clear the code. If problem persists, may need a new board.

I would also check the ground between the copier and finisher.
