L4 is the main code it should be flashing a second also but I am will ing to bet that there is a scanner lock on the bottom left where your paper comes out that is turned and locking the scanner in place or the scanner itself is gone bad and is around 175 for the part alone\. I work on sharp MFP everyday and these most likely your problem

After Warming up....The error message is E000020-0460..what is the problem

Hello Rama,
I will answer your question however you will determine the solution.This error code means that when your device went through it's "self diagnostics"in an effort to provide you with the optimum image quality a failure occurred.The target for image quality for BLACK could not be reached.The black drum has reached and went beyond it's ability function.Replace the black drum.The part number is 0258B001AA.It is easy to replace and there are many sources on the web.The cost is around 175 $US. . The estimated life of the black drum is 78K.Keep in mind that virtually every image you generate has a black component.The E000020 means one of your 4 drums have failed.The 0460 says 2 things.The 04 means black drum.The 60 that follows means which component of the black drum(the developer)has failed.I am glad to help you and save you a service call.Please let FIXYA know I helped you, and have a blessed life. SPINAL

Our old Toshiba 3560 copier starts up for about 1 or 2 seconds when turned on, but then the screen flashes blank, and I hear 4 beeps, and that's it. I can't figure out what to do with it, as there are no error messages. Anyone?
I just had the same thing happen to me. Is there a fix for this?

Olivetti JP 192 suddenly lost power and will not power up again. Checked miains fuse ok.Tried all equipment off/on. Computer says "Printer not responding" ,of course. Any ideas?

sounds like the power supply has gone.
It sounds like it may be beyond economical repair as it usually is if the PSU goes (usually more effort and / or money) than the printer is worth.

check how much another Olivetti JP 192 is, then decide if its worth repairing the PSU.

There should be another set of numbers after the e4 flashes. E4 indicates a problem with the transfer belt assembly,main drive assy or the drum thermistor. I'm afraid you will need a tech to figure this one out.

Our Standard SD650 Duplicator has error code SC07-30. The paper tray is jammed in the down position. Need the reset code to clear the error

Through my own efforts & online research. Your service team never responded. I paid for live chat assistance which was not provided, and was then directed to email assistance which has been a complete joke. Please fully refund all fees charged to my credit card. I will look for other solutions to tech problems in the future.
