PREPARATIONS
About the scan head
The scan head lamp remains on constantly when the machine is in the ready
condition (when the ready indicator is illuminated).
The machine adjusts the scan head lamp periodically to maintain copying quality. At
this time, the scan head moves automatically. This is normal and does not indicate
machine trouble.
Power off
Make sure that the machine is not in operation and then turn the power
switch to the "OFF" position.
1
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.
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)

greater than 28 lbs. (105 g/m2 ).
14
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.
2
LOADING THE PAPER TRAY
Note
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
Fan the paper and insert it into the tray. Make sure that the
edges go under the corner hooks.
Note
• 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.
15
LOADING PAPER
3
Gently push the paper tray back into the machine.
Note
16
• 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.19)
• 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

PRINTER/SCANNER
FUNCTIONS
The machine includes a USB connector and a parallel connector as standard
equipment.
When the USB connector is used, the printer and scanner functions can be used.
When the parallel 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.
• The scanning feature is only available when Windows 98/Me/2000/
XP and a USB connection are used. The scanning feature is not
available when Windows 95/NT 4.0 or a parallel connection is used.
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 XP / Windows 2000 and the Microsoft
USB 2.0 driver must be pre-installed, or the USB 2.0 driver for Windows XP /
Windows 2000 must be installed using Microsoft's Windows Update service.
• 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).
6
* 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.

: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.
