POWER ON AND OFF
The power switch is located on the left side of the machine.
POWER ON
POWER OFF
Turn the power switch to the "ON"
position.
Make sure that the machine is not in
operation and then turn the power switch
to the "OFF" position.
It will take about 45
seconds for the machine
to warm up. While the
machine is warming up,
the POWER SAVE
indicator ( ) will blink.
(The POWER SAVE
indicator ( ) will go off
when the machine is
ready to copy.)
However, you can make desired settings and press
the [START] key ( ) during warm-up. Copying will
start after warm-up.
Note
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
cancelled.
Check the following to make sure the machine is not in
operation:
• The START indicator is lit. (Initial state)
• The POWER SAVE indicator ( ) is lit. ("Preheat
mode" or "Auto power shut-off" mode)
• The machine reverts to the initial settings when it is first turned on, when the [CLEAR ALL] key (
) is pressed,
or when no keys are pressed for the preset "Auto clear" time following the end of a copy job. When the machine
reverts to the initial settings, all settings and functions selected to that point are cancelled. The "Auto clear" time
can be changed in the user settings. (p.36)
• The machine is initially set to automatically enter power save mode if not used for copying or printing, for a
preset period of time. This setting can be changed in the system settings. (p.36)
Power save modes
The machine 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".
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. The POWER SAVE indicator ( ) lights up,
however, the keys on the operation panel can be used. Normal operation automatically resumes when a key on the
operation panel is pressed, an original is placed, or 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. All lights except the POWER
SAVE indicator ( ) and ON LINE indicator go off. To resume normal operation, press the [START] key ( ).
Normal operation also resumes automatically when a print job is received. 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 timer" can be changed using system settings. It is
suggested that you set times that are appropriate for your usage of the machine. (p.36)
Initial settings
The machine assumes the initial settings when it is first turned on, when the [CLEAR ALL] key (
) is pressed,
and approximately one minute after the last copy is made in any mode.
Copy ratio: 100%, Exposure: Automatic
Copy quantity: 0, All special copier modes: Off
Auto paper selection: On, Paper feed station: The tray selected in the "Default tray setting" in the system settings. (p.37)

about 100 pages have been printed. The output may not stack correctly if more than 100 pages are allowed to accumulate.
*3 The number of sheets of the paper which can be set changes with the weight of a 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 your authorised service representative.
● Before using other than SHARP recommended paper, make a test copy to see if the paper is suitable.

USER SETTINGS
This chapter explains how to set the automatic exposure level and the system settings, which are custom settings
that control fine points of the machine's operation.
ADJUSTING THE AUTOMATIC
EXPOSURE LEVEL
The exposure level used in automatic exposure adjustment, which automatically adjusts the copy exposure
according to the original, can be adjusted. If copies tend to be too dark or too light when automatic exposure
adjustment is used, follow the steps below to adjust the automatic exposure level.
The automatic exposure level can be adjusted separately for the document glass and the SPF.
Note

The copy and printer functions cannot be used while the automatic exposure level is being adjusted.
To adjust the automatic exposure
level in the SPF, place the original in
the SPF. (p.16)

Press the [Light] key (
) or [Dark]
key (
) to lighten or darken the
automatic exposure level as desired.
5
Press the [AUTO/TEXT/PHOTO] key
( AUTO /
/
) to complete the
setting.
Make sure that the SPF indicator is lit.
Note

To adjust the automatic exposure level for
copies made from originals placed on the
document glass, proceed to step 2.
Press the [AUTO/TEXT/PHOTO] key
( AUTO /
/
) to select "PHOTO"
(
).
Hold down the [AUTO/TEXT/PHOTO]
key ( AUTO /

Explanation
• "Auto clear time" automatically returns the
copy settings to the initial settings (p.8) when a
certain period of time elapses after a copy is
made. This program is used to select the
period of time. "Auto clear time" can also be
disabled.
• 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.
The POWER SAVE indicator ( ) lights up,
however, the keys on the operation panel can
be used. Normal operation automatically
resumes when a key on the operation panel is
pressed, a print job is received or an original is
placed.
• 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. All lights except the
POWER SAVE indicator ( ) and ON LINE
indicator go off. To resume normal operation,
press the [START] key ( ).
Normal operation also resumes automatically
when a print job is received. While in auto
power shut-off mode, no keys (except the
[START] key ( )) can be used.
• When copying using the SPF, during the
period of time that the SPF indicator blinks
after an original has been scanned
(about 5 seconds), a subsequent original can
be placed and automatically fed into the
machine.
• Use this setting to enable or disable auto
power shut-off.
• This function automatically selects paper that
is the same size as the original placed in the
SPF, or the same size as that selected with the
[ORIGINAL] key (
). The function can be
disabled.
• If the paper runs out during printing and there
is paper of the same size and orientation in
another tray, this function automatically
switches to that tray (excluding the bypass
tray). The function can be disabled.
See "AUDITING MODE SETTINGS" (p.39).

Explanation
• This setting is used to change the copy
resolution in AUTO and TEXT mode from 600
x 300 dpi to 600 x 600 dpi (high-quality mode).
Scanning is slower when high-quality mode is
used.
• Use this setting to select whether or not
holding down a key causes repeated input of
the key. For keys that normally cause a set
value to increase when held down (for
example, holding down the [ZOOM] key (
,
)), this program can be used to have the
set value not change when the key is held
down.
• Use this setting to select how long a key must
be pressed for the input to be accepted. By
selecting a longer time, you can prevent
settings from being changed by the accidental
pressing of a key.
• This sets the volume of beep signals. (p.38)
• Use this to sound a beep when a base setting
is selected. (p.38)
• Use this setting to select 99 or 999 for the
maximum number of copies.
• When this function is enabled, printing in
printer mode will automatically continue using
a different size of paper if the specified size of
paper runs out in all trays. This feature does
not function in copy mode.
• Use this program to select a default tray. This
tray is automatically selected each time the
power is turned on or each time the machine
reverts to the initial settings.
• Use this program to set "AUTO", "TEXT", or
"PHOTO" as the default exposure mode.
• This sets the USB 2.0 data transfer speed. If
your computer is not compatible with USB 2.0
(Hi-Speed), use this program to change the
USB 2.0 mode to "Full-Speed".

CLEANING THE DOCUMENT GLASS AND
SPF/DOCUMENT COVER
If the document glass, underside of the document cover/SPF, or the scanner for originals coming from the SPF (the
long narrow glass surface on the right side of the document glass) become dirty, the dirt may appear on copies.
Always keep these parts clean.
Stains or dirt on the document glass/SPF will also be copied. Wipe the document glass, underside of the document
cover/SPF and the scanning window on the document glass with a soft, clean cloth.
If necessary, dampen the cloth with water. Do not use thinner, benzene, or similar volatile cleaning agents.
Do not spray flammable cleaner gas. Gas from the spray may come in contact with the internal
Warning electrical components or high-temperature parts of the fusing unit, creating a risk of fire or
electrical shock.
CLEANING THE ORIGINAL SCANNING GLASS (ONLY
