Question about Sharp AL-1217 Copier

1 Answer

Scanner Position Error

Greetings!

My sharp AL-1217 greets me with a flashing "L1" error - should be scanner position error. The scanner is not locked, the unit moves from right to left when I put it manually in a different position on startup - so it seems to know that the unit is not in starting position. It runs back to the left, moves for four to five centimeters - and shows the error.
Any idea what it could be exactly?

Your copy lamp is faulty or scanner drive is not moving. Check the lamp and replace if not lighting.
If its the scanner, unlock the scanner lock above the paper exit tray.

Scanner bar won't move


According to another source, the L1 error means "Scanner position error". Hope you find a solution, and not an expensive one.
