The machine was fine one moment, then - puff - the gremlins took control ! It does copy - but has a fairly loud rythmic clicking sound (almost a "thump" ) and, although the paper comes out straight , the copy print comes out skewed/crooked on the page with a periodic black line that seems to coincide with the timing of the clicking sound. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks in advance. FYI - the toner and drum cartridges are reasonably new/young.

Re: Sharp Al-800 Skewed Copies
One problem with this machine, a small pin comes out on the paper release handle in the back, which lets on side of the paper lift tray to come up higher than the other. might look in that area. good luck

I tried changing the the size to a reduction. It took the sheet from the top and copied it at a reduced size with no problem. Then I switched back to normal size and it worked just fine. I would have never thought to try a different size without your suggestion. Thanks for the help
Check the machine for a **** or dust glass above the drum.
Check and clean coronas, the wires and shells may be dirty reducing charge.
Run a few white copies, to check of the toner / carrier ratio is low.
Do the copies come out totally black or just dark???? Does the copiers scanning lamp turn "ON" when you go to make a copy? If you smell something burning, you may have paper wrapped around the upper fixing roller...
Hello sir; that's a simple problem whayever you mention all the parts you replace are not necessary, if you can't reset H4,or H3 then you need to replace "THERMISTOR" that is the device to control the temperature, the parts #RDTCT0128FCZZ.
First, is the paper being fed at all? If the paper is being fed and jams at the same location then a senor, actuator or switch is bad, out of place or broken. If the device will not clear the jam light, completely power down the device, unplug from wall, let set about 30 sec. to 1 min. and then replug in and see if it reset. If the device did not reset then again a senor, actuator, or switch is out of position ( being held up in the paper path). If the paper does not feed at all then the feed section is the problem. Clean the feed tire (s) the rubber restorer or a high alcohol base cleaner. Listen to hear if the feed tire (s) are even turning. If feed is not turning then it could be clutch, motor or board problem.
You should replace the drum and toner cartridge if you haven't in the 5 years, that should take care of the lines. The only problem is the cartridges can cost more then the machines is worth... Hope that helps
