    My AL1631 Shar keeps blinking showing code H4

  • mitch stein Dec 16, 2008

    I have the exact same problem, it is a jam flashing on the panel, i replaced the fuser already and checked the entire paper path for rouge paper bits. I also can only find one paper sensor right before the fuser, it seems there should be at least one more due to the long amount of space till it would exite the machine.

    Does anyone know if there is a second one and where it is located?

If it looks like an m or w it means there is a paper jam somewhere, most likely the fuser.
Open right side and look inside the copier, where it gets hot.
do you see a crumpled pice of paper there?
you may have to remove four screws to get the paper out

What does the red flashing triangle mean?

If the triangle you are seeing is like a stack of 6 dots then this means your toner cartridge is due to be changed. You are out or nearly out of toner. If you have a local toner cartridge recharging shop they can usually refill these for around $50.00. I do about 10 of these every month.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Replace crum-light does not go out-will not reset sharp al1631 copier

Press # * C *.. the machine will go into diagnostics. then enter 24, then press start, then enter 06 and start. If it isnt 06, then press 07. I would do them both since the developer is just going to pop up with a message soon.

I've lost my manual. Does the red light that

The red light that looks like an empty cylinder on the Sharp AL 1631 Grayscale Copier panel is the "drum replacement required" indicator. The "cartridge replacement" indicator is represented by 6 dots forming a triangular shape.
The drum replacement indicator lights up when there are about 1000 copies left until its end of life. It is only when the indicator starts blinking that the drum really needs replacement.
The part number for the drum is AL-100DR.
I hope this helps.
