Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier
I have a similar problem as "LOUD woodpecker noise" with a Sharp AL-1631 but with some variations that I think are important to list it separately.
I opened up the drawer to place more paper when still making a copy. After this, I got the LOUD Woodpecker noise and cant use the multi-bypass tray. I still get copies using paper from the drawer, but the noise is still there. I looks like a gear is rotating and hitting a plastic part. The noise comes from the multi-bypass tray and side cover.
I tried the following but the noise is still there and cant get copies from paper loaded in the multi-bypass tray:
1. Turn off/on.
2. Copy without the paper tray.
3. Copy without the TD cartridge.
Is there any solution for this?
Really Guys, Thank you so much , This was really helpfull, It fixed my printer, Thank you so much

Open the rear door above the bypass feed area. Find a small phillips screw on the bottom near the left side. It is located near the door interlock switch. Remove the screw and gently lift the cover starting on the left side. This will allow view of the paper pickup roller. There is a plastic piece over the pickup roller that was jammed in the down position. When it was allowed to move freely it returned to the up postion. Replace the cover and the small phillips screw. Close the door. Try the printer again. When I did this, the woodpecker noise disappeared and the copier returned to normal operation.
