My printer is not hooked up to the computer. It flashes L1. Called Sharp and they said to send in for repairs or exchange after he had me do somethings to it. The error code that was flashing after he had me do somethings was 004 611. I know that L1 means it is locked- but it is not locked. When the tech from sharp had me do some things the bar did move. Can I fix it myself. Thank you.

The L1 is for a scanner movement failure. The scanner bar that maoves back and forth under the glass is not moving as it should. The E7 is for a scanner lamp reference failure which CAN be caused by the scanner movement failure so I would try and resolve the L1 first. I have a tip posted here at Fixya that resolves the L1 so try that first and it may fix both problems. If not just comment on this and I will try and help you resolve any remaining issues.

Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
Tell us what happens when you reset the L1 with the C, Exp. Mode(Far left key), C, Exp. Mode, 14, then Print clearing method. Do this reset procedure then lift up the ADF and watch with scanner move back and forth. It should bump out and in a few times with the lamp lit. Then park back into home position.
L1 indicates a scanner feed problem. Make sure the scanner isn't locked in the shipping position. It is underneath the scanner where the paper exits the machine. Look for a plastic dial and turn it one way or the other.
L1 IS USUALLY TO DO WITH THE SCANNER POSITION CHECK THAT THE SCANNER LOCK SWITCH HAS NOT ACCIDENTLY MOVED CAUSING A LOCK YOU CAN CHECK THIS BY LIFTING THE LID AND TURN THE MACHINE ON AND OFF IF THE SCANNER IS FREE YOUN WILL SEE IT MOVE TO THE HOME POSITION.
1. Turn machine off. 2. Make sure the scanner lock is unlocked. This is a clear plastic knob. (it is located on the left hand side of the machine under the document glass in the copy exit area - check your manual for a picture.) 3. Turn machine back on, watch scanner to see if it moves. 4. Try a copy. 5. If you still get an L1 then it might need service because the scanning bar is jammed.
This also is a fix if you are getting blank copies.
Hope that helps...
Error code L1-00 indicates that the scanner is locked down for transport. There is a dial under the scanner by the paper output tray. Rotate the dial, and the error message may be cleared. The dial controls the scanner lockdown mechanism.
