Question about Sharp AL-1655CS Laser Printer

Tractor sounding noise when I turn printer on

I purchase my Sharp in May of 2006. I've always had problems with it and while it was under warranty, I was able to switch out to a different printer. My warranty expired in May of last year. Although this system out lasted the others, I am reading possible solutions could be the fuser or the fuser gear drive.

Can I fix this myself under your directions or do I need to get this done by a technician?

It was working fine, then I decided to print an envelope which I had not done with this printer. then it started making that noise.

This has to be fixed by a technician. The feed gears probably need replacing or another gear could be suspect in your copier.

PLEASE HELP!!! Sharp AR-BC320 printer! We purchased this printer and do not have the installation cd that came with it :( Can anyone please please please help?!

If you manage to locate an Sharp AR-BC320 printer driver CD it may not have a Vista driver but it definitely would not have a Wndows 7 version and Sharp would not create one for this old printer.

I have found a lot of people are having problems with printer drivers for old printers with Windows Vista and Windows 7.
I suggest you purchase a new printer that support Vista and Windows 7.

Download a PCL5e driver from here

This printer should work with any PCL5e compatible driver, you may not be able to address all of the trays etc, but you can overcome this by changing tray at print time on the printer control panel.

Canon printer

It shouldn't dry up in such short a time, not unless you've done a lot of printing and the cartridge has run out. The seller is taking the mickey.

If you've replaced with canon cartridges and it still fails, insist on replacement or repair under warranty.

If repaired, check that it works properly before accepting it.

I have two HP Color Laserjet CP3525n printers for my home office. I've owned many HP laser printers and color laser printers (Konica) and none of them have ever made load squeeking noises while...

These are not the quietist printer I have dealt with. Most of the squeeking noises we have encountered in servicing are related to the drums in the cartridges. Are these original cartridges or refills? If original and units are still under warranty, I would go after HP to deal with the noise. If you are using refilled or remanufactured cartridges, some noise is just part of the money saving tradeoff you make.

Error 41 means there is a major problem with the printhead, usually
requires a print head replacement. My advice is to take it to a
Brother service centre while it is under warranty. If it's out of
warranty then it is cheaper to purchase a new, non Brother model. If you have been using non-Brother cartridges or refills, they can have too much water in them and it erodes the print head after a while. Usually just after warranty has expired!

Tally T2250 Matrix Printer does not pull up paper to be printed

I would guess you are getting error messages on the diplay to tell you what the bleeping noise is about....Please read this message.....

I would guess the message is something like LOAD SINGLE, and you are using tractor feed paper. If this is the case the paper path on the pritner has changed and needs to be changed to Tractor 1 again.

To do this;

  • Stop any prin jobs gong to the pritner
  • If the printer has data in its buffer, power the printer off and back on again to clear this data
  • Ensure the printer is OFFLINE
  • Press the SETUP button
  • Press the button under ADJUST
  • Press the button under PAPER WAY
  • Use button 2 or 3 to change this to TRACTOR 1
  • Press SET
  • Place the pritner ONLINE
You should be back in action, if not post the message you see on the printers LCD display.
