Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier

Woodpecker noise II

Hi and thank you very much for your response. I would like to answer your questions about possible codes or the status of side door as follows.

Side cover. The side cover closes without any indication of misadjustment. We tested again applying pressure to the closed cover but the sound continues.

Codes. There are no codes shown on the screen. This machine is working great as always except for two things:
1. Multi-bypass tray. The feeding mechanism of the multi-bypass tray is not working when requested using the operation panel. This is the only section of the machine that is not working.
2. Woodpecker noise. This noise has a frequency that is similar to the pass/gap between gear teeth. It comes from an area that includes the side cover and the rear part of the machine close to the side cover. This frequency makes me think that probably a gear might be hitting a mispositioned plastic part of the feeding mechanism in the multi-bypass tray.

Depending on your recommendations, I am planning to open up the section located between the paper tray and the multi-bypass tray beneath the copier.

Please let me know your comments about this.

Regards,

Charliegreen

    Thanks again!



    Can you believe this: my assistant hit the side of the machine with a girly blow and the noise disappeared!!!

ComDear all, Please help to solve thia problem: print revoew does not match print out (the margin of the paper)


Hi

The default margin settings are not the same for the right and left hand side of the page.

The left margin is always wider to allow for punch holes in file paper.

It is not the printer settings you need to adjust, it is the page layout of your word processing software.

Adjust the margin settings manually. In MS Office 2007, for example:

Page Layout > Margins > Mirrored Margins.



I hope this helps.

My HP Laserjet 1200 is screeching constantly


Probably the laser-mirror motor. It will screech until the load gives a error and the printer shows error/ is dead.
However, the motor can be lubed. Remove sides, remove screws found, remove top cover. Remove and open the black box containing laser. Remove motor board and lube the motor, dont get the mirror dirty. Asseble. Total time 15min...

Woodpecker noise II


A technician should look at this. There could be a gear going bad on it. Ive see a fee cases where the drum gets bad and cant turn any more.

Are there error codes on the screen?

Make sure the right door where the bypass tray is closed all the way.
