Check the following to make sure the machine is not in operation:
• The ready indicator is lit. (Initial state)
• The power save indicator is lit. (preheat mode or auto shut-off mode)
Power save modes
The machine has two power save modes to reduce overall power consumption and
thereby reduce the cost of operation. In addition, these modes conserve natural
resources and help reduce environmental pollution. The two power save modes are
preheat mode and auto power shut-off mode.
Preheat mode
This function automatically switches the machine to a low power consumption state if
the set duration of time elapses without the machine being used when the power is
on. In this mode, the power save indicator lights up. Normal operation automatically
resumes when a key on the operation panel is pressed, an original is placed, a print
job is received.
Auto power shut-off mode
This function automatically switches the machine to a state that consumes even less
power than preheat mode if the set duration of time elapses without the machine being
used when the power is on. The power save indicator lights up, the display shows a
message indicating that the machine is in auto power shut-off mode. To resume normal
operation, press the [START] key (
). Normal operation also resumes automatically
when a print job is received or scanning is begun from a computer. While in auto power
shut-off mode, no keys (except the [START] key (
)) can be used.
Note
The preheat activation time and the auto power shut-off time can be
changed with "PREHEAT MODE" and "AUTO SHUT-OFF TIME" in the
user programs. It is suggested that you set times that are appropriate
for your usage of the machine. (p.62 and p.63)
Check RSPF open function
When enabled, this function may help prevent wasteful use of toner that occurs
when the RSPF cover is not completely closed.
If the start (
) key is pressed when the RSPF cover is not completely closed,
"CLOSE THE SPF/RSPF COVER." will appear in the display and copying may not take
place. If copying does not take place, copying can be performed by pressing the start
(
) key again, however, the scan size set in "CHANGING A TRAY'S PAPER SIZE
SETTING" (p.23) or "VALID COPY WIDTH" (program number 25) (p.65) will be used.
If the RSPF cover is completely closed after "CLOSE THE SPF/RSPF COVER."
appears, copying will take place at the normal size.

Special papers
Follow these guidelines when using special papers.
● Use SHARP recommended transparency film and label sheets. Using other
than SHARP recommended paper may result in misfeeds or smudges on
the output. If other than SHARP recommended media must be used, feed
each sheet one at a time using the bypass tray (do not attempt continuous
copying or printing).
● There are many varieties of special paper available on the market, and
some cannot be used with this machine. Before using special paper,
contact a SHARP service center.
● Before using other than SHARP recommended paper, make a test copy to
see if the paper is suitable.

• Do not load paper above the maximum height line (
).
Exceeding the line will cause a paper misfeed.
• If the paper is not fanned, double-feeds or misfeeds may occur.
• Make sure the stack of paper is straight before loading it. When
adding paper, take the remaining paper out and combine it into a
single stack with the new paper.
• Make sure that all the paper in the stack is the same size and type.
• When loading paper, ensure that there is no space between the
paper and the guide, and make sure that the guide is not set too
narrow and causes the paper to bend. Incorrect loading will cause the
paper to skew or misfeed.
• If you loaded a different size of paper than was loaded previously in
the tray, go to "CHANGING A TRAY'S PAPER SIZE SETTING" (p.23)
• When not using the machine for an extended period, remove all
paper from the paper tray and store it in a dry place. If paper is left in
the machine for an extended period, the paper will absorb moisture
from the air, resulting in paper jams.
BYPASS FEED (including special paper)
The bypass tray can be used to feed standard paper, transparency film, labels,
envelopes, and other special purpose paper.
Important points when inserting paper in the bypass tray
Up to 50 sheets of standard copy paper can be inserted in the bypass tray. (Capacity
will vary depending on the type of paper loaded.)
Be sure to place envelopes horizontally as shown in the following diagram.
2
Available
Not
Available
• When loading envelopes, make sure that they are straight and flat and do not have
loosely glued construction flaps (not the closure flap).
• Special papers except SHARP recommended transparency film, labels, and
envelopes must be fed one sheet at a time through the bypass tray.
• When adding paper, first remove any paper remaining in the tray, combine it with
the paper to be added and then reload as a single stack. The paper to be added
must be the same size and type as the paper already in the tray.
• Do not use paper that is smaller than the original. This may cause smudges or
unclean images.
• Do not use paper that has already been printed on by a laser printer or plain paper
fax machine. This may cause smudges or unclean images.
Envelopes
Do not use the following envelopes, as misfeeds will occur.
• Envelopes with metal tabs, clasps, strings, holes, or windows.
• Envelopes with rough fibers, carbon paper, or glossy surfaces.
• Envelopes with two or more flaps.
• Envelopes with tape, film, or paper attached to the flap.
• Envelopes with a fold in the flap.
• Envelopes with glue on the flap to be moistened for sealing.
• Envelopes with labels or stamps.
• Envelopes that are slightly inflated with air.
• Envelopes with glue protruding from the seal area.
• Envelopes with part of the seal area peeled off.
• Be sure to select com9, com10 or Monarch in the paper size setting of the printer
driver. (For detailed information on the printer driver, refer to the online manual.)

PRINTER/SCANNER
FUNCTIONS
The machine includes a USB connector and a LAN connector as standard equipment.
When the USB connector is used, the printer and scanner functions can be used.
When the LAN connector is used, the printer function can be used.
The machine has the following features:
• High-speed data transfer (when connected to a USB 2.0 connector)
• ROPM* function
* ROPM is an acronym for "Rip Once Print Many" processing. The ROPM function stores
multiple pages of print data in memory before printing. When printing multiple copies,
this eliminates the need for the computer to repeatedly transmit the print data.
To use the machine as a printer or scanner, the printer driver or scanner driver must
first be installed as explained in the "SET UP THE SOFTWARE".
Note
• If a problem occurs in printer or scanner mode, see the Online
Manual.
• When using USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed mode), be sure to read "System
requirements for USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed mode)" (below) to verify that
your system and the machine settings are configured appropriately.
System requirements for USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed mode)
The following system is required to use USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed mode):
• Your computer must be running Windows 2000 Professional / XP / Vista and the
Microsoft USB 2.0 driver must be installed.
• The "USB 2.0 MODE SWITCH" setting in the machine's user programs must be
set to "Hi-Speed". To change the setting, see "USB 2.0 MODE SWITCH" in the
user programs. (p.66).
* Even when the Microsoft USB 2.0 driver is installed, some USB 2.0 expansion cards
are not capable of attaining the speed stipulated by the Hi-Speed standard. This
problem can often be fixed by installing a more recent driver for the card. To obtain
the most recent driver for your card, contact the card's manufacturer.

Carcinogenicity : In 1996 the IARC reevaluated carbon black as a Group 2B carcinogen (possible human
carcinogen). This classification is given to chemicals for which there is inadequate human
evidence, but sufficient animal evidence on which to base an opinion of carcinogenicity. The
classification is based upon the development of lung tumors in rats receiving chronic inhalation
exposures to free carbon black at levels that induce particle overload of the lung. Studies
performed in animal models other than rats did not show any association between carbon black

and lung tumors. Moreover, a two-year cancer bioassay using a typical toner preparation
containing carbon black demonstrated no association between toner exposure and tumor
development in rats.
: In a study in rats of chronic inhalation exposure to a typical toner, a mild to moderate degree of
lung fibrosis was observed in 92% of the rats in the high concentration (16mg/m3) exposure
group, and a minimal to mild degree of fibrosis was noted in 22% of the animals in the middle
(4mg/m3) exposure group, but no pulmonary change was reported in the lowest (1mg/m3)
exposure group, the most relevant level to potential human exposures.

MAINS PLUG WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
The mains lead of this equipment is already fitted with a mains plug which is either a non-rewireable
(moulded) or a rewireable type. Should the fuse need to be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved fuse
to BS1362 marked
or
and of the same rating as the one removed from the plug must
be used.
Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse on the moulded plug. Never use the plug without
the fuse cover fitted.
In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being compatible with the plug supplied
either cut-off the moulded plug (if this type is fitted) or remove by undoing the screws if a rewireable
plug is fitted and fit an appropriate type observing the wiring code below.
DANGER: The fuse should be removed from the cut-off plug and the plug destroyed immediately
and disposed of in a safe manner. Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted
elsewhere into a 13A socket outlet as a serious electric shock may occur.
To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:
IMPORTANT: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
GREEN-AND-YELLOW: Earth
BLUE:
Neutral
BROWN:
Live
As the colours of the wires in this mains lead may not correspond with coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured GREEN-AND YELLOW must be connected to the terminal in the plug
which is marked with the letter E, or by the safety earth symbol Å@, or coloured green or greenand-yellow.
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter
N or coloured black.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter L or coloured red.
If you have any doubt, consult a qualified electrician.
