Be very careful here. If you are replacing this with another leased machine, get the Tech to remove the HDD from the old machine and request that you keep it. Other wise look over his shoulder as he re formats the HDD and get him to show you the empty file directory. BTW there are programs available to hackers to read so called erased files, that's why it's best to request you keep the HDD, they are cheap now anyways.

Have a weird problem on a Sharp AR m455n the screen stuck on the sharp logo any ideas?

Sometimes this would happen when a bad print job got sent to the machine. I'd make sure to delete all of the print jobs in everyone's print queue on their computer then reboot the machine to see if it comes back up.

Scan processing slow

Try making sure there is no power filter on the network line, and that the network line has a straight shot to the router without going through any other 5 port switches or anything. normally when the scans are slow, and the prints are slow, it's a cabling issue.

when you're ready to replace that old thing request a quote from Skelton!

How do I remove the hard drive on a AR-M455N before shipping?

If you have a finisher installed on your machine or any other accessory it needs to be removed. Then on that right side the panel comes off with 2 shouldered screws. Next you have to remove the HDD cover which is located right at the top almost centered on that right side. Its 2 screws and you remove the HDD connectors and then unscrew the the HDD from the frame.

We have a sharp model AR-M455N with an error code of L4-02. The copier repeatedly jams. We clear the jam get another 20-50 copies and it will jam again. Any help? Thank you

Hi, please do not attempt to do what i will advice if you are not an experienced technician as more harm may be done if you attempt. This is a problem to do with main motor overload or a jammed and dry drive unit.
  • Open the back cover while the machine is out of mains power.
  • Open the main drive unit carefully and clean the gears with alcohol and all the shafts and bearings. Allow them to dry and check for any worn out and replace.
  • Return every piece where it was carefully and oil them well. Try to rotate the gears with your hand before you screw it to the machine and make sure they are moving freely.
  • Check the main motor for any notable defect and screw it well in its position.
  • Check the rest of driven units like developer unit and make sure it is smoothly running. Check also the fuser unit for the jammed parts and oil if necessary.
  • Test run the machine and make several copies like 100 and if okay, return all covers and proceed.
Good luck.
