MAIN FEATURES
High-speed laser copying
First-copy time*1 is only 8.0*2 seconds.
Copying speed is 20 copies per minute. This is ideal for business use and provides a
big boost to workplace productivity.
*1 The first-copy time is measured after the power save indicator turns off following
power on, using the document glass with the polygon rotating in the copy ready state
and "LSU SETTING" set to ON in the user programs (A4, paper fed from paper tray).
*2 When user program 24 is set to OFF.
High-quality digital image
• High-quality copying at 600 dpi is performed.
• In addition to automatic exposure adjustment, two original modes can be selected:
"TEXT" for text-only originals, and "PHOTO" for photographs. The exposure can be
adjusted to five levels in each mode.
• The photo mode copying function allows clear copying of delicate halftone original
images such as monochrome photos and color photos.
Enhanced copying features
• Zoom copies can be made from 25% to 400% in increments of 1%. (When the
RSPF is being used, the zoom copy ratio range is 50% to 200%.)
• Continuous copying of up to 99 copies is possible.

PREPARATIONS
Power off
Make sure that the machine is not in operation and then turn the power
switch to the "OFF" position.
If the power switch is turned off while the machine is
in operation, a misfeed may occur and the job that
was in progress will be canceled.
In cases where the machine will not be used for a
long time, turn off the power switch and remove the
power cord from the outlet.
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.
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.131 and p.132)
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.21) or "VALID COPY WIDTH" (program number 25) (p.134) 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.

snappers, strings, windows, linings, self-adhesive strips, patches or synthetic materials.
Do not use envelopes that are filled with air or envelopes that have labels or stamps
attached. These will damage the machine.
*3 When using paper heavier than 104 g/m2, use paper that is A4 or smaller.
16
LOADING PAPER
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.
LOADING THE PAPER TRAY
Make sure that the paper is not torn, is free of dust, and has no wrinkles
or curled edges.
1
Raise the handle of the paper tray
and pull the paper tray out until it
stops.
2
Remove the pressure plate lock. Rotate the pressure plate lock
in the direction of the arrow to remove it while pressing down
on the pressure plate of the paper tray.
17
LOADING PAPER
3
Store the pressure plate lock which has been removed in step
2. To store the pressure plate lock, rotate the lock to secure it
as shown below.
Pressure plate lock
4
Fan the paper and insert it into the tray. Make sure that the
edges go under the corner hooks.
• 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.
5
Gently push the paper tray back into the machine.
• 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.21)
• 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.
18
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.
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.
19
LOADING PAPER
Loading paper in the bypass tray
• Paper must be fed narrow side first into the feed slot.
• Special papers such as transparency film, labels, and envelopes
must be fed one sheet at a time through the bypass tray.
• When copying onto transparency film, remove each copy promptly.
Do not let copies stack up.

PRINTER FUNCTIONS
PRINTER/SCANNER FUNCTIONS
The machine includes a USB connector and a LAN connector as standard equipment.
The printer and scanner functions can be used through the USB connector and the
LAN connector. (Scan using TWAIN and Button Manager can only be used through
USB connector.)
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".
• If a problem occurs in printer or scanner mode, see page 147.
• 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/7 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.135).
* 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.
58
USING THE PRINTER MODE
The procedure for loading paper for printing is the same as for loading copy paper.
See "LOADING PAPER" (p.16).
• Print jobs received while the machine is copying will be stored in
memory. When the copy job is finished, the print jobs will begin
printing.
• Printing is not possible when the front or side cover is opened for
machine maintenance, or when a misfeed occurs or the machine
runs out of paper or toner, or when the drum cartridge reaches its
replacement time.

SCANNER FUNCTION
With this machine a document or photo can be scanned into an image file and sent
over a network or the Internet to a file server, e-mail destination, your own computer
or USB memory installed on the machine. You can select from the following
transmission methods as the destination where you wish to send the scanned
image, depending on where you wish to send the scanned image data.
1 The scanned image can be sent to a
memory storage device on a network
(a designated directory on an FTP
server). (This is called "Scan to FTP"
in this manual.)
When sending a scanned image to an
FTP server, an e-mail message can
also be sent to a preset e-mail
address to inform the recipient of the
location of the scanned image data.
(This is called "Scan to FTP
(Hyperlink)" in this manual.)
2 A scanned image can be sent to a
computer connected to the same
network as the machine. (This is
called "Scan to Desktop" in this
manual.)
* Before Scan to Desktop can be
performed, the software in the CDROM that accompanies the
machine must be installed. For the
procedure for installing the
software, see the Sharpdesk
Information Guide.
4 The scanned image can be
sent to a USB memory
installed on the machine. (This
is called "Scan to USB" in
this manual.)
92
3 The scanned image can be sent to an
e-mail recipient. (This is called "Scan
to E-mail" in this manual.)

cases where high-clarity image reproduction is required, such as a
photograph or an illustration. Note that a high resolution setting will
result in a larger file size, and transmission may not be successful if
there is insufficient memory or disk capacity in the server to which the
image is sent (or if the administrator of the server has restricted the
file size). If transmission is not successful, you can try such measures
as reducing the number of scanned pages in the file or reducing the
scan size setting for the original.
• To open the scanned image without using the software program in the
CD-ROM that accompanies the machine, the recipient must have a
viewer program that can open the image format (file type) that was
selected as explained above.

TROUBLESHOOTING AND MAINTENANCE
If your E-mail is returned
If a Scan to E-mail is not successfully transmitted, an e-mail informing you of this fact
is sent to the return address configured in the SMTP server. If this happens, read the
e-mail and determine the cause of the error, and then repeat the transmission.
Important points when using scan to E-mail
Be very careful not to send image data files that are too large.
Your mail server's system administrator may have placed a limit on the amount of
data that can be sent in one e-mail transmission. If this limit is exceeded, the e-mail
will not be delivered to the recipient. Even if there is no limit and your e-mail is
successfully delivered, a large data file may take a long time to be received and
place a heavy burden on the recipient's network, depending on the recipient's
network (Internet) connection environment.
If large image data files are repeatedly sent, the resulting burden on the network may
slow down the speed of other, unrelated data transmissions and in some cases, may
even cause the mail server or network to go down.
The images on the following page will produce the following file sizes when scanned
as A4 size or 8-1/2" x 11" size originals:

If multiple images are scanned, the file size will be approximately (Size of each
image as indicated above) x (Number of images scanned).
Although the actual limitation depends on your network environment, a general
guideline for the maximum file size for Scan to E-mail is 2000 KB (2 MB). In cases
where you need to send multiple documents, try such measures as lowering the
resolution mode.

Troubleshooting for image transmission
Problem
Cause and solution
The scanned image is
clipped.
The selected "Scan Size" setting is smaller than
the actual original size.
→ Set the scan size to the actual original size (p.115)
and make sure that the original is placed in the
correct orientation (p.120). If you intentionally
selected a size setting smaller than the actual
original size, take into consideration the part of the
original that you wish to scan when placing the
original. For example, if the actual size is A4 (8-1/
2" x 11") and you selected B5 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") for
the size setting, place the original so that the part
that you wish to scan is within the B5 (5-1/2" x 8-1/
2") area at the left, center of the glass.
The received image data
cannot be opened.
The viewer program used by the recipient does
not support the format of the received image data.
→ Try selecting a different file type (TIFF / PDF /
JPEG) and/or a different compression format
(None, MH (G3), MMR (G4)) when sending the
image data.
Otherwise, have the recipient use Sharpdesk or a
viewer program that supports the above
combinations of file types and compression
formats.

TROUBLESHOOTING AND MAINTENANCE
Problem
Cause and solution
Check the Web page to see if a limit has been set for
the size of image files sent using Scan to E-mail (the
factory default setting is "Unlimited"). A limit can be
set from 1 MB to 10 MB. Consult the administrator of
the Web page to select a suitable limit (p.110).
The recipient does not
receive data sent by email (Scan to E-mail).
Transmission takes a
long time.
The amount of data that can be sent in one e-mail
transmission is sometimes limited by the administrator
of the mail server. Even if the amount of data sent is
within the limit setting explained above, if it exceeds
the limit set by the administrator of the mail server, the
data will not be delivered to the recipient. Decrease
the amount of data sent in the e-mail transmission
(reduce the number of pages scanned). (Ask your
mail server administrator what the data limit is for one
e-mail transmission.)
When there is a large amount of image information,
the data file is also large and transmission takes a
long time.
Pay attention to the following points when selecting scan settings
to ensure that an image file is created that suits the purpose of
transmission in terms of image quality and file size.
Scan settings are configured in the Web page.
• Color mode
Select a color mode that is appropriate for the use of the document to
be scanned so that the file size will not be larger than necessary.
Scanning a document with the color mode set to gray scale or black
and white will yield a smaller file size than scanning in color.
• Resolution
For normal text originals, a sufficiently legible image is produced
when the color mode is set to "Mono 2 gradation" and the resolution
is 200 dpi or 300 dpi.
The 600 dpi setting should only be used in cases where high-clarity
image reproduction is required, such as an original that includes
photographs or illustrations. Note that a high-resolution setting will
result in a larger file size and transmission may not be successful if
there is insufficient disk capacity in the server to which the image is
sent (or if the administrator of the server has restricted the file size). If
transmission is not successful, you can try such measures as
reducing the number of scanned pages in the file or reducing the
scan size setting for the original.
