* Do not use non-standard envelopes, and envelopes that have metal clasps, plastic
snappers, string closures, windows, linings, self-adhesive, patches or synthetic
materials. Do not use envelopes that are filled with air or envelopes that have
labels or stamps attached. These will cause physical damage to the unit.
** For paper weighing from 104g/m2 to 128g/m2 (28 lbs. to 34.5 lbs.), A4 (8-1/2" x
11") is the maximum size that can be fed through the single bypass or the multibypass tray.
• Special papers such as transparency film and labels envelope must be fed one
sheet at a time through the single bypass or the multi-bypass tray.

and the start (
) indicator will light up.
• Be sure that paper is free of rips, dust, wrinkles, and curled or bent edges.
• Make sure all the paper in the stack is the same size and type.
• When loading paper, ensure there is no space between the paper and
the guide, and check if the guide is not set too narrow causing the
paper to bend. Loading paper in these ways will result in document
skew or a paper jam.
• When not using the unit for an extended period, remove all paper from
the paper tray and store it in a dry place. If paper is left in the unit for
an extended period, the paper will absorb moisture from the air,
resulting in paper jams.
• When adding new paper to the paper tray, remove the old paper already
contained in the tray. Placing new paper on top of the paper already
contained in the tray may result in feeding two sheets at one time.
16
BYPASS FEED (including special paper)
The multi-bypass tray (AL-1225) or the single bypass (AL-1216) can be used to feed
standard paper, transparencyA6
film, labels, envelopes, and other special purpose
paper. Paper measuring from A5 to A4 (148mm x 210mm to 210mm x 297 mm) (5-1/
2" x 8-1/2" to 8-1/2" x 14") and in the weight range of 52g/m2 to 128g/m2 (14 lbs. to

Note for loading envelopes
• Envelopes must be fed narrow side into the feed.
• Do not use non-standard envelopes, and envelopes that have metal clasps, plastic
snappers, string closures, windows, linings, self-adhesive, patches or synthetic
materials. Do not use envelopes that are filled with air or envelopes that have labels
or stamps attached.
• Envelopes of which the surface is not flat because of embossing may cause the
copies/prints to become smudged.
• Under high humidity and temperature conditions the glue flaps on some envelopes
may become sticky and be sealed closed when copied/printed.
• Use only envelopes which are flat and crisply folded. Curled or poorly formed
envelopes may be poorly copied/printed or may cause misfeeds.
• It is recommended that you perform a test copy before performing the actual copy/
printed job.
• Be sure to select either Com 10, DL, C5 or Monarch on the paper size setting of the
printer driver. (For detailed information on printer driver, refer to the online manual.)

MAKING COPIES
This chapter explains basic and other copying functions.
The unit is equipped with a one-page memory buffer. This memory allows the unit to
scan an original once only and make up to 99 copies. This feature improves
workflow, reduces operation noise from the copier, and provides higher reliability by
reducing wear and tear on the scanning mechanism.
COPY FLOW
1 Make sure that paper has been loaded in the paper tray (p.15)
or multi-bypass tray (p.17), and check the paper size (p.14).
If paper is not loaded, see page 15. If you are using the single bypass, check
the paper size and then proceed to the next step without loading paper.
2 Place the original.
If you are using the original table, see "Using the original table" (p.20).
If you are using the SPF, see "Using the SPF" (p.21).
When copying onto A4 (8-1/2" x 11") paper or a large size, pull out the
paper output tray extension.
4
3 Select the copy settings.
If you wish to copy using the initial settings (p.13), proceed to the next step.
To set the number of copies, see page 22.
To adjust the resolution and contrast settings, see page 22.
To enlarge or reduce the copy, see page 24.
AL-1225 model
To change the tray used, see page 25.
4 Start copying.
Press the start (
) key.
If you are using the single bypass
Do not press the start (
) key. Insert a
sheet of paper into the single bypass.
(Page 18)
Multiple copies are not possible
using the single bypass.
19
Do not insert paper in the single bypass when a copy job from the paper
tray is in progress. This will cause a misfeed.
ORIGINAL PLACEMENT
Using the original table
• The original table can read up to A4 (8-1/2" x 14") original.
• Image loss 3mm (3/33") can occur at the leading and trailing edges of
the copies. Also image loss 4.5mm (11/64") in total can occur along
the other edges of the copies.
• When copying a book or an original which has been folded or a
crumpled original, press down the original cover lightly. If the original
cover is not securely closed, the copies may be striped or blurred.

The SPF is designed to hold up to 30 originals measuring from A5 to A4 (148mm x
210mm to 210mm x 297 mm) (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" to 8-1/2" x 14") and weighting from
52g/m2 to 90g/m2 (14 lbs. to 23.9 lbs.).
• Before feeding originals in the original feeder tray, be sure to remove
any staples or paper clips from them.
• Before placing curled or wavy originals into the original feeder tray, be
sure to flatten them. If not, original misfeeds may result.
• The SPF (
) indicator on the operation panel will light up. If this
indicator does not light up, the originals are not properly set or the
SPF is not properly closed.
• Badly damaged originals may misfeed in the SPF. It is recommended
that such originals be copied from the original table.
• Special originals such as transparency film should not be fed through
the SPF, but should be placed directly on the original table.
• Image loss (max. 4 mm (5/32")) can occur at the leading and trailing
edges of the copies. Also image loss (max. 4.5mm (11/64") in total)
can occur along the other edges of the copies.

automatically draw in the paper and begin printing.
• If copying is being performed when printing is started, copying will
continue. After copying is complete, printing will be executed when the
clear (
) key is pressed twice, the ON LINE key is pressed to switch
the unit to the online state or approximately 60 seconds (auto clear
time)* elapse.
* The auto clear time varies with a user program setting. See "USER
PROGRAMS" (p.27).
• Preheat mode and auto power shut-off mode will be cancelled when
printing is started.
• If the paper size specified from the software application is larger than the
paper size in the printer, the image may be printed onto two sheets of paper.
• If the paper size specified from the software application is larger than
the paper size in the printer, part of the image that is not transferred to
the paper may remain on the surface of the drum. In this case, the
backside of the paper may become dirty. If this occurs, change to the
correct size paper and print two or three pages to clean the image.
• If you start a print job while a scan job or copy job is in progress, the
print data will be stored in the unit's memory. When the scan job or
copy job is completed, printing will begin.
About interrupt copying
If you press the start (
) key to begin a copy job while a print job using the paper
tray or multi-bypass tray is in progress, the copy job will begin automatically after the
print data in the unit's memory is printed (interrupt copying). When this is done, the
print data remaining in the computer is not sent to the unit. When the copy job ends,
press the clear (
) key twice, or press the ON LINE key once to change the unit to
the online state (p.53), or wait until the set auto clear time (p.26) elapses. The
remaining print data will be sent to the unit and printing will resume. Interrupt copying

All About The Windows Event Manager and scanner events in
Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
Windows Platforms provide a mechanism for software to handle external events for
a scanner device like the SHARP AL-xxxx (where xxxx is the model name of your
unit) series products. This mechanism is controlled by the device manager on a
device basis. Applications that can handle events from a scanner/camera device
register with the Windows Event Manager and shown as available in the registered
applications. The path an event takes to get to the user's selected application
depends upon the event settings for the device.
