• The machine reverts to the initial settings when it is first turned on, when the [CA] 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 system settings. (p.118)
• 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.120)
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 duration of time set in the
system settings elapses without the machine being used when the power is on. In preheat mode the display turns
off. Normal operation automatically resumes when a key on the operation panel is pressed, an original is placed, or
a print job or fax 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
duration of time set in the system settings elapses without the machine being used when the power is on. During
auto power shut-off, only the START indicator blinks. To restore the machine to normal operation, press the
[START] key. Normal operation also resumes automatically when a print job or fax is received or scanning is begun
from a computer. While auto power shut-off is in effect, pressing a key other than the [START] key will have no
effect.
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.120)
Default settings
The machine is set at the factory to return all settings to the default settings one minute after a copy job is finished
(auto clear function) or when the [CA] key is pressed. When the settings return to the default settings, any functions
that were selected are cancelled.
The auto clear time can be changed in the system settings. (p.118)
In the default state the display shown below appears. The default state of the display may vary depending on
settings in the system settings.

(When using the printer: Same as the direction for the A4 size paper, etc)
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.
25
BEFORE USING THE MACHINE
Envelopes
Do not use the following envelopes, as misfeeds will occur.
• Envelopes with metal tabs, clasps, strings, holes, or windows.
• Envelopes with rough fibres, 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.
CHANGING THE PAPER SIZE SETTING OF A TRAY
If the size of the loaded paper is different from the size shown in the display, follow the steps below to change the paper size setting of the tray.
The paper size setting cannot be changed during copying, printing, fax printing (when the fax option is installed), or interrupt copying, or when a
misfeed has occurred. However, if the machine is out of paper or out of toner, the paper size setting can be changed during copying, printing, and
fax printing.

COPY FUNCTIONS
Auto paper select mode (when there are two or more paper trays)
When auto paper select mode is enabled, "AUTO" appears in the paper size display. This function automatically
selects paper that is the same size as the original (A5, B5, B5R, A4, A4R, B4, A3, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", 8-1/2" x 11",
8-1/2" x 11"R, 8-1/2" x 13", 8-1/2" x 14", 11" x 17" paper).

• "Auto paper select mode" can be disabled in the system settings. (p.123)
Removing the document cover
Originals that can be used in the SPF/RSPF
To copy large originals like newspapers, remove the
document cover. To remove it, open the document
cover and lift it at a slightly backward angle. To
replace the cover, do the reverse.
The SPF/RSPF cannot be removed.
Originals that are A5 to A3 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" to
11" x 17") and 56 g/m2 to 90 g/m2 (15 lbs. to 24 lbs.)
can be used. A maximum of 40 pages can be
placed at once.
For originals that are B4 (8-1/2" x 14") or larger (B4,
A3 (8-1/2" x 14", 11" x 17")), a maximum of 30
pages can be placed at once.
Note
Copying books or originals with folds or
creases
Press down on the document cover/SPF/RSPF
while copying as shown. If the document
cover/SPF/RSPF is not completely closed, shadows
may appear on the copy or it may be fuzzy.
Straighten originals with folds or creases well before
placing.
• Make sure that there are no paper clips or
staples on the original.
• Straighten curled originals before placing
them in the document feeder tray. Curled
original may cause misfeeds.
• When you set multiple sheets of thick
original, if the original is not fed, reduce
the number of the set originals.
Originals that cannot be used in the
SPF/RSPF
The following originals cannot be used. These may
cause misfeeds or smudging and unclear images.
• Transparencies, tracing paper, other transparent or
translucent paper, and photographs.
• Carbon paper, thermal paper.
• Originals that are creased, folded, or torn.
• Glued originals, cut-out originals.
• Originals with binder holes.
• Originals printed using an ink ribbon (thermal
transfer printing), originals on thermal transfer
paper.
Stream feeding mode
If "Stream feeding mode" is enabled in the system
settings (p.122), the SPF/RSPF indicator will blink
for about 5 seconds after all originals are fed. If a
new original is placed in the SPF/RSPF during this
time, the original will be automatically fed in and
copying will begin.

COPY FUNCTIONS
Points concerning the position of the printed copy image
Even if the same original is copied onto the same type of paper, differences in the original size, scanning location
(document glass or document feeder tray), selected paper tray, enlargement/reduction ratio, and other conditions
may cause the position of the printed copy image on the paper to vary.
As shown in the following example, when an original smaller than the paper size (for example, A5 original and A3
paper) is copied from the document glass, the position of the printed copy image on the paper is different when
paper from tray 1 is used (1) and paper from the bypass tray is used (2).

selected.
Auto tray switching (when there are two or more paper trays)
If the tray runs out of paper during copying and there is another tray with the same size of paper and the same
feeding orientation (horizontal or vertical), the other tray is automatically selected and copying continues. "Auto tray
switching" can be disabled in the system settings (p.123).
SETTING THE NUMBER OF COPIES
Press the numeric keys to set the number of copies.

• The set number of copies appears in the display. A maximum of 999 copies (factory default setting) can be set.
• A single copy can be made even if "0" is displayed.
Note
• If you enter the wrong number, press the [C] key and enter the correct number.
• The limit for the number of copies can be changed in the system settings. (p.123)
Important note when making a large number of copies
If the number of sheets output to the centre tray exceed its maximum capacity (250 sheets when a job separator tray
kit is not installed, 150 sheets when a job separator tray kit is installed) during a copy job, the copy job will stop
temporarily. If this happens, promptly remove the copies and press the [OK] key to resume copying. The copy job
will step each time the number of sheets in the centre tray reach its maximum capacity.
Before starting a long copy run, remove any sheets that remain in the centre tray. During output of the copy job,
exercise care as the job may stop frequently due to the centre tray becoming full.

ROTATING THE IMAGE 90 DEGREES (Rotation Copy)
When "Auto paper select mode" or "automatic ratio selection" are in operation and the original is placed in a different
orientation (vertical or horizontal) than the paper, the original image will be automatically rotated 90 degrees to
enable correct copying onto the paper.
This function is convenient for copying B4 or A3 (8-1/2" x 14" or 11" x 17") originals, which can only be placed
horizontally, onto paper that is loaded vertically.
The rotation copy function is initially enabled. It can be disabled in the system settings. (p.122)
Note
• Rotation copy will not operate when a copy is enlarged to a paper size greater than A4 (8-1/2" x 11"). In this
case, place the original in the same orientation as the paper.
• When 2 IN 1 / 4 IN 1 copy is used (p.51), rotation copy will operate even if disabled in the system settings.

→ If you attempt to scan a large area at high resolution and there is
insufficient memory in the machine to hold the scanned data,
scanning will take place at a lower resolution and the scanner
driver will enhance the data to make up for the lower resolution.
However, the quality of the enhanced image will not be as high as
if scanning took place at the higher resolution. Use a lower
resolution setting, or scan a smaller area.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
CLEANING THE DOCUMENT GLASS AND
SPF/RSPF/DOCUMENT COVER
If the document glass, underside of the document cover/SPF/RSPF, or the scanner for originals coming from the
SPF/RSPF (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/RSPF will also be copied. Wipe the document glass, underside of the
document cover/SPF/RSPF 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
WHEN AN SPF/RSPF IS INSTALLED)
If white or black lines appear in copies made with using the SPF/RSPF,
use the provided glass cleaner to clean the original scanning glass. (If
white or black lines appear in copies or printed pages when the
SPF/RSPF is not used, see "CLEANING THE TRANSFER CHARGER"

● Store the supplies in a location that is:
clean and dry,
at a stable temperature,
not exposed to direct sunlight.
● Store paper in the wrapper and lying flat.
Paper stored out of the wrapper or in packages
standing on end may curl or get damp, resulting in
paper misfeeds.
Supply of spare parts and consumables
The supply of spare parts for repair of the machine is guaranteed for at least 7 years following the termination of
production. Spare parts are those parts of the machine which may break down within the scope of the ordinary

SYSTEM SETTINGS GUIDE
PURPOSE OF THE SYSTEM SETTINGS
The system settings are used by the administrator of the machine to enable or disable functions to suit the needs of
your workplace.
This manual explains only the system settings that are common to all the functions of the machine, (copy and printer
functions), as well as system settings that are specifically for the copy function.
• To use the system settings, the administrator password must be entered.
PROGRAMS RELATED TO ALL FUNCTIONS OF THE
MACHINE (COPY AND PRINTER FUNCTIONS)
These programs are used to enable auditing mode, adjust power consumption, and manage peripheral devices.
Auditing mode can be enabled separately for the copy. When auditing mode is enabled for a function, a valid
account number must be entered in order to use the function. (If a valid account number is not entered, the function
cannot be used.)
When auditing mode is enabled for the printer function, an account number must be entered at the user's computer
when the print command is selected. (Depending on the system settings, a job may be printed even if an incorrect
account number is entered, and thus care must be taken when managing printer page counts.) If "CANCEL JOBS
OF INVALID ACCOUNTS" is enabled in the system settings, printing will be prohibited if an invalid account number
is entered.)
PROGRAMS FOR COPY MODE
These programs are used to change the factory default copy settings to settings that better suit the needs of your
workplace.
When auditing mode is enabled for the copy function,
• A valid account number must be entered to make copies.
(Copying is not possible unless a valid account number is entered.)
• A count is kept of the number of copies made by each account. This allows you to monitor copier usage by
account. (The counts can be totaled.)
* The account number is a five-digit number.
• A limit can be set for the number of copies that can be made by each account.
PROGRAMMING AN ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD
The administrator password is a 5-digit number that must be entered in order to access the system settings. The
administrator (administrator of the machine) should change the default administrator password that was set at the
factory to a new 5-digit number. Be sure to remember the new administrator password, as it must be entered each
time the system settings are subsequently used. (Only one administrator password can be programmed.)
Refer to the Start Guide for the factory default administrator password.
To change the administrator password, see "PROGRAMMING AN ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD" (p.111).

System requirements for USB 2.0
(Hi-Speed mode)
The USB port on the machine supports USB 2.0
Hi-Speed mode.
The following system is required to use USB 2.0
(Hi-Speed mode):
The computer is running Windows Vista/XP/2000
and the Microsoft USB 2.0 driver is pre-installed, or
the USB 2.0 driver for Windows Vista/XP/2000 that
Microsoft provides through Windows Update is
installed.
* Even when the Microsoft USB 2.0 driver is installed,
some USB 2.0 expansion cards are not capable of
