COPIER INSTALLATION
GETTING STARTED
Improper installation may damage the copier. Please note the following
during initial installation and whenever the copier is moved.
If the copier is moved from a cool place to a warm place, condensation may form inside the
copier. Operation in this condition will cause poor copy quality and malfunctions. Leave the
copier at room temperature for at least 2 hours before use.
Do not install your copier in areas that are:
Copier installation
●
damp, humid, or very dusty
●
exposed to direct sunlight
●
poorly ventilated
●
subject to extreme temperature or humidity changes, e.g., near an
air conditioner or heater.
The copier should be installed near an accessible power outlet
for easy connection.
Be sure to connect the power cord only to a power outlet that
meets the specified voltage and current requirements.
Also make certain the outlet is properly grounded.
Connect the copier to a power outlet which is not used
for other electric appliances. If a lighting fixture is
connected to the same outlet, the light may flicker.
4" (10 cm)
Be sure to allow the required space around the machine for
servicing and proper ventilation.
A small amount of ozone is produced within the copier during operation. The emission level is insufficient
to cause any health hazard.
NOTE:
The present recommended long term exposure limit for ozone is 0.1 ppm (0.2 mg/m3) calculated as an
8 hr. time-weighted average concentration.
However, since the small amount that is emitted may have an objectionable odor, it is advisable to
place the copier in a ventilated area.
8
CAUTIONS ON HANDLING
GETTING STARTED
Be careful in handling the copier as follows to maintain the performance of
this copier.
Do not drop the copier, subject it to shock or strike it against any
object.
Cautions on handling
Do not expose the drum cartridge to direct sunlight.
Doing so will damage the surface (green portion) of the drum cartridge,
causing poor copy quality.
Store spare supplies such as drum cartridges and TD cartridges
in a dark place without removing from the package before use.

BYPASS FEED (special paper)
The bypass tray is used to copy onto transparency film, labels, and other
special purpose papers. Up to 100 sheets of standard copy paper can be set
in the bypass tray.
For special purpose papers, the original image must be
smaller than the paper or media for copying.
If the original image is bigger than the paper or media, this
may cause smudges on the edges of the copies.
Also for standard copy paper, smudges may appear if the
copy paper is not at least as large as the original image.

POWER SAVE MODES
The copier has two power save modes to reduce overall power consumption
thereby reducing 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.
●
User programs
The preheat activation time and the auto power shut-off time have been
preset at the factory to 90 sec. for preheat mode and 30 min. for auto power
shut-off mode. These times can be changed using user programs. It is
suggested that you set appropriate times according to the actual usage of
the copier. (See page 32.)
Preheat mode
) indicator
When the copier enters the preheat mode, the POWER SAVE (
will light up and other indicators will remain on or off as before. In this
condition, the fuser in the copier is maintained at a lower heat level, thereby
saving power. The preheat level is, however, high enough to allow the copier
to come to a ready condition or begin copying within 10 seconds after any key
input or copier operation such as paper tray operation is performed.
Auto power shut-off mode
When the copier enters the auto power shut-off mode, the POWER SAVE
indicator will light up and all other indicators will go out. The auto power
shut-off mode saves more power but requires a longer time to warm up before
copying can begin.

SUPPLIES
Genuine supplies statement
Standard supplies for this copier that are to be replaced by the user are copy
paper, TD cartridge, and drum cartridge.
For best copying results, be sure to use only
SHARP Genuine Supplies which are
designed, engineered and tested to maximize
the life and performance of SHARP copiers.
Look for the Genuine Supplies label on the
TD cartridge and drum cartridge.
GENUINE SUPPLIES
Photoconductive drum
The AL-1600/AL-1610 Copiers have advanced process control technology which
improves copy quality uniformity. This feature stabilizes copy quality throughout the life
of the photoconductive drum by automatically compensating for the changes in drum
characteristics due to wear, operator use patterns, and environmental conditions. The
automatic adjustments are made in response to a sensor that detects the reflectance
characteristics of a special area of the drum.
This feature requires drums containing the special reflectance area
(recommended SHARP genuine photoconductive drum), to prevent
low image density copies from poor process control and possible
damage to the machine. If you use other drums, the process control
system cannot run properly.

Hazardous Identification (Emergency Overview)
Toner is a fine, black powder possessing no immediate hazard. There are no anticipated carcinogenic effects from
exposure based on animal tests performed using toner. When used as intended according to instructions, studies
do not indicate any symptoms of fibrosis will occur.
Section 5.
Health Hazard Data
Route(s) of Entry:
Inhalation?
Skin?
Ingestion?
Yes
No
Possible but very unusual.
Health Hazards: Acute oral toxicity -------- LDL0 of this toner is over 2,000mg/kg.
Mutagenicity -------------- The result of Ames test is negative.
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.
Chronic Effect:: 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.
Signs and Symptoms of Exposure: Minimal irritation to respiratory tract may occur as with exposure to any
non-toxic dust.
Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: None
Emergency and First Aid Procedures:
Inhalation; Remove to fresh air. If effects occur, consult medical personnel.
Eye;
In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with water for 15 minutes.

Use of a dust mask is recommended when handling a large quantity of toner or during long
term exposure, as with any non-toxic dust.
Engineering Control / Ventilation:
Not required.
Work / Hygienic Practice:
Inhalation should be minimized as with any non-toxic dust.
Steps to be taken in case of Spill or Leak: Sweep up or clean up with vacuum cleaner.
