20 Most Recent Sharp MX-3501N All-In-One Printer Questions & Answers


If you power the machine off and on and it comes back, try replacing the whole transfer belt unit. If it still comes back, sorry dude you're out of luck. Your copier can't swing the hinged portion of the transfer belt on and off your color drums because a badly designed gearshaft for your transfer lift motor has worn out and probably ate up a bearing or bushing as well. This is a known problem and Sharp has published a service bulletin addressing this. It may be motor rebuild time for you, with the new edition gearshaft.

If your machine is displaying "replace waste toner container" then you can empty the waste toner box & reset the machine. If you open the front door you will see a large black box & above this a small rectangular green button. Pressing this button will release the black box. The box will then lift upwards from the machine. At the bottom of the box you will see a round, clear plastic bung, remove the bung & empty the waste toner into a suitable bag or container. Once emptied, the bung can be re-fitted, the waste box can be inserted back into the machine. Locate the waste box into the 2 slots then push the waste box firmly back in place until it latches. Turn the machine off & on using the switch located to the left of the waste box in the bottom left corner of the inside of the front door. This should reset the machine. Be careful when disposing of the waste toner, it is flammable so do not dispose of in a fire. Hope this helps. Dave.

Are you using the correct print driver? Many times, if the print driver is for a similar product, it may not have that option. It would be a good idea to see if you have the specific driver especially the PCL6 version.

try turning the machine off then on. if that doesn't work, from copy mode type # * C * to go into service mode (test: enter a simulation). Clear codes 14, 15, 16, 17. type the number then hit the start key. then CA to reboot, you must try the codes on at a time. Please report what your error code was.

Do you have the inner finisher where everything is contained inside of the belly of the machine, or do you have the finisher that stands up next to the machine? If you have the stand up finisher does it have saddle stitch option and are those the staple we are talking about? There is normally a model number on the tag in back ex. FNX1, FNX2, or FXX1 . FNX1 isthe inner finisher and is easy to change the staples on. The front cover flips down right under the screen and then you grab the green lever and pull it to the left side of the machine. If you look inside the gap that is formed you will see a green lever pull this one down and then slide that unit down and into the gap. Save the white plastic piece with the green lever but pop off the clear plastic box by squeezing the two arrows that are printed on it and pulling up. then new staple unit will drop in. and then do everything in reverse to put it back together. Let me know if you have one of the other finishers and I can help with those too. I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/ethan_e84416e0b13809d2

If your copier has a hole punch unit you should be able to go to output and select hole punch. If you're trying to print with hole punch from your computer and you dont have the option, you need to configure your print driver. Check out the link below for instructions. How To Configure Sharp Print Drivers with Installed Options to print... www.equipmybiz.com

Most Likely the issue is resolved by configuring the driver properly. If you right click the printer under Printers and faxes in your start menu you need to go to properties, then to the configuration tab and then to Auto Configuration. it will then communicate with the printer and find out what options are installed and then enable you to use stapling from your computer. Make sure to select where the hands are pointing also. thanks. you will understand.
