Question about Sharp AL 800 Copier

1 Answer

Misfeed indicator I've removed the TD cartridge and the Drum cartridge but don't see anything inside that might be causing a misfeed. The copier was copying fine, feeding paper normally and then all of a sudden it stopped and the misfeed indicator was blinking. I've shut it off and on several times, messed around with the paper tray, all to no avail. I've tried pushing the other buttons to see if anything would work, but again, nothing. Thank you in advance for any insights into this problem. Halle

    My problem is very similar in that the misfeed indicator keeps flashing. I've checked to see if there is any paper stuck anywhere in the machine and there is not. I've also replaced the TD cartridge (since this indicator was flashing too). I've also checked the paper-tray to see if it's installed correctly. The strange thing is that I can occasionally get the misfeed indicator to stop (by switching off power, playing with the paper tray-although this doesn't always work) and then I can get one copy where things are working just fine but then the misfeed indicator flashes again and the copier locks.

    Any ideas ??

    Thanks

    Misfeed indicator blinks; was working fine; no misfeed or paper in machine. Rebooted several times, misfeed light always on. Unpluged and then rebooted and still comes on. Went through all procedures in manual involving removing and replacing drum etc.

It could be comming from the paper feed mechanism above the paper tray. Make sure its installed properly. It could be as simple as cleaning the feed tires.

The photocopier keeps flashing a red light and have no manual


If light is blinking it can mean a few things like the toner/developer (TD Cartridge) needs to be changed soon or the drum needs to be changed or there is a paper jam or misfeed of paper.

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 copier continues to misfeed even though I have cleared the jam


there are little plastic fingers on the drum and heating rollers (hot), one of those is raised up from the surfaces of either component, causing your paper to catch. both move back and forth on tiny springs. on the fuser you can actually remove several of these fingers if they are the problem and still use. on the drum they must be repositioned or replaced

Misfeed Indicator light is on - there are no jamed copies present. Other solutions recommended. Thank you


Make sure that there isn't any little piece of paper caught near a sensor. Often when a jam is removed, the operator rips the paper, leaving some if it there inside. If it's near a sensor, you'll get a constant jam indication. Use a flashlight to check for it.

The Message "misfeed detected" means that a paper is bee jammed inside of the copier so you should open some door and remove the paper which has been jammed inside of the copier.
Because of that i need the brand and model of the copier for i to be able to help you and tell you what to do
