Pull out your paper tray (instructions below) and make sure there's not paper behind the tray blocking the motors from operating.

Else, worn rollers or broken lift motor.

First go to the service sim mode with the key combo # * C *

Type 22 - Start 9 - Start

If your tray 1 counter is above 100,000 your 3 rollers need to be changed. This is easily done by taking out the tray (you must tilt to the left and lift up at the end), unclipping and removing the paper guide, and unclipping and removing the 3 paper tires.

If your counter is under 100K try washing your rollers with soap and water, rubber cleaner and alcohol if you have it, but not Windex or 409. Your matched set of feed/sep tires should have some rough tread on them, if they are baby **** smooth its' replacement time.

If it pulls paper from a fresh stack and then stops pulling after a few sheets, the motor that continunally lifts the paper stack to meet the rollers has broken down, and can be replaced from the back of the machine.

What would cause tray 1 to misfeed every 12 to 15 sheets? The misfed sheet ends up laying on the edge of the paper tray advanced about 3/8" from the paper stack?


check your paper thickness setting in your drivers
2. clean separation pad at the bottom of the paper tray
3. clean rollers located after the pick up area(registration rollers)
4. check actuators for the sensors to see if they are sticking

I have a Sharp Al-2040cs when I turn it on the misfeed indicator is blinking. I checked it there no misfeed paper or piece of paper inside. How can I fix this problem?


The MISFEED Indicator blinks when a MISFEED has occurred. Remove the misfed paper referring to the the description of MISFEED REMOVAL beginning on page 65 of the pdf Manual at:

http://files.sharpusa.com/Downloads/ForHome/HomeOffice/PrintersFaxMachines/Manuals/cop_man_AL2030_AL2040CS.pdf

When the MISFEED Indicator is blinking you should look closer at the paper feed area (see page 66 of the PDF). You may need to remove the paper tray to find any remnants of paper. If after closing the side cover the light does not stop blinking you will need to follow through as per the illustrated instructions.

Remember after removing jammed paper, you need to press the clear key to clear the MISFEED error.

If after doing all this the error signal has not cleared, power down the printer; unplug from the power supply; let rest 5 - 10 minutes; plug back i to power supply; turn printer on and see if this resolves issue.

Trust this is helpful. Please vote. :)

My sharp 2300-n notified me of a paper misfeed. After clearing all misfed paper, the copier is still telling me there is a misfeed, and is not allowing me to print or copy. Suggestions?


Make sure that all of the paper jams are removed. Check every available cavity, including your paper trays. Pull each tray out and make sure there are no jams right out of the paper trays. Sometimes a piece of paper can become lodged where you cannot see it.

If you are positive there is no paper stuck in the machine, then you have a paper-path sensor that is either dirty or faulty.
