The simple fix is to clean the reference strip under the glass. There is a white strip under the left edge of the glass that the scanner reflects off of in order to set up the scanner bulb intensity. When this strip gets dirty the the machine just keeps trying. I would remove the cover on the left side glass area with the 4 screws. On the bottom side you will see the white strip. Clean this with glass cleaner. While your in there I would go ahead and remove the large glass. Turn off the main power and pull out the scanner bar and clean 3 mirrors. One is the "slot" in the main scanner bar and then the 2 in the assembly to the left that trails the main scanner bar. Once cleaned put it all back together and this scanner bar "referencing" issue wil go away. If it does not (which is rare) then there is a problem with the scanner/ccd unit and the machine is really not worth repairing at this point.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

My Sharp AL-1551CS copier is flashing L 3. What


Scanner movement failure. The scanner is the part under the glass that lights up and moves back and forth. So if you lift up the feeder so you can see the glass, turn the machine off for a few seconds then back on. Watch the movement of the scanner. It should move right and inch or two then back to the left. If all goes well the copier should come to ready. Lay a piece of paper on the glass and press the print button to watch the scanner movement. If it binds up or does not scan correctly there are 2 possibilities.
1) your scanner lock is engaged and is preventing the scanner from moving. Check the clear plastic dial located under the far left upper side of the copier, near where the paper exits the machine. Make sure it is in the unlocked position.
2) Your scanner rail is dirty and dry. This rail can be seen under the glass towards the back of the copier. The scanner rides on this rail. It is very common for these to get dirty and for the grease to dry up causing the scanner to freeze up on the rail. The glass must be removed and the rail cleaned and lubricated.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Repairs of sharp AL 1000 flashaing E and 7


The scanner is not reading the white reference strip under the glass properly. You will need to clean or have cleaned the scanner optics and at least the white strip under the original glass. This strip is located under the left edge of the glass...under the scale that has the original sizing on it. The machine uses this strip on start up to reference the scanner. Simple fix.

Sounds like the scanner is locked. Look under the scanner where the paper comes out, there is a clear wheel, turn it all the way one way or the other and that will unlock the scanner.

The scanner rails will dry out. Try a drop of oil on the rod the scanner travels on. There are two bushings that slide along the rod/rail. Good luck.

Error on sharp copier


That has to do with the laser unit and/or the white shading plate.

First remove the platen glass and clean the white strip on the bottom side. BE CAREFUL FOR THE GRAY OR BLACK LINE ON THE STRIPE IF YOU WIPE IT WITH A SOLVENT AND REMOVE THE LINE YOU ARE DONE.
If the unit is making a whining noise it is probably the laser unit polygon motor.
If the scanner mirror system is hanging or not returning to home position check to see that the scanner lock on the underside of the scanner where the paper comes out is unlocked.
