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.
3.
Do not install the machine where it is:
● damp or humid,
● exposed to direct sunlight,
● extremely dusty,
● poorly ventilated,
● subject to extreme temperature or humidity changes (e.g., near
an air conditioner or heater).
4.
Ensure that the area chosen for the machine location is level.

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.

a specified portion of the copy paper. By repositioning the
original, the portion of it which falls within the area to be erased
can be shifted.

POWER SAVE MODES
The copier 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.
●
●
User programs
The preheat activation time and the auto power shut-off time have been
preset at the factory to 15min. for preheat mode and 60 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.
Both of the power save modes can be automatically controlled by the auto
power save control function. When enabled, this function will automatically
establish new set times for the preheat and auto power shut-off modes
based upon copier usage patterns.
6
Preheat mode
POWER SAVE
START

When the copier enters the preheat mode, the POWER SAVE
indicator 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 30 seconds after any key input is
made.
Auto power shut-off mode
Auto power save control
As an ENERGY STAR® Partner, SHARP
has determined that this product meets
the E NERGY S TAR ® guidelines for
energy efficiency.
NOTE:
The preheat mode and the auto power shut-off mode, which are
controlled by the auto power save control function, will meet the
Energy Star guidelines.

Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Power save modes
The auto power save control function automatically controls the
power save modes. If this function is enabled, the copier enters the
preheat mode a certain length of time after any copier operation and
then enters the auto power shut-off mode. The time that elapses
before the copier enters the preheat mode or auto power shut-off
mode is set automatically by the copier, which calculates the proper
time depending on the user’s copying frequency and copy quantity.
If the POWER SAVE indicator is on and some other indicators are
on, the copier is in the preheat mode.
GENERAL INFORMATION
If the auto power shut-off mode is enabled, the copier will automatically turn off the power once a programmed length of time has
elapsed without any copier operation after the last copy of a run is
made or the power is first turned on. The power switch will automatically be turned to the “OFF” position.
To turn the power back on, simply turn the power switch to the “ON”
position.
POWER SAVE MODES
Setting the power save modes
The factory default settings for the power save modes are OFF for the
auto power save control function and ON for the preheat and auto
power shut-off modes.
The auto power save control function can be enabled or disabled as
desired using user program No. 4. If this function is disabled, the time
that elapses before the copier enters a power save mode after any
operation is made can be set manually. This time is set with user
program No. 2 for the preheat mode and user program No. 3 for the
auto power shut-off mode. If the auto power save control function is
enabled, the settings of user programs No. 2 and No. 3 will be ignored.
For these settings, see page 34.
●
The copier will enter first the preheat mode and then the auto power
shut-off mode when no copier operation is made.
If the time set for the preheat mode is not shorter than that for the
auto power shut-off mode, the copier will enter only the auto power
shut-off mode when the time set for the auto power shut-off mode
has elapsed after any copier operation.
●
If the auto power shut-off time is changed using user program
No. 3 when the auto power shut-off mode has been disabled
(program No.9 ), the auto power shut-off mode will be automatically
enabled.

GENUINE SUPPLIES
Photoconductive drum
The SF-2530 Copier has 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 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 the drum.
WARNING
GENERAL INFORMATION
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.

Using the ADF or RADF
●
●
●
Before loading originals into the document feeder
tray, be sure to remove any staples or paper clips
from them. The ADF or RADF can handle a maximum of 50 originals.
Damaged or crumpled originals may misfeed in the
ADF and RADF. It is recommended that these be
copied from the document glass and the copies be
used as original documents.
When feeding originals which have closely spaced
binding holes punched along an edge, place the
originals so that the punched edge is positioned to
the right or along the side guides.
●
●
●
●
Special originals such as transparency film and
tracing paper should not be fed from the ADF and
RADF, but should be placed on the document glass.
Duplex copying will not work when a non-standard
sized paper is used. (Duplex copying can be performed only when an optional duplex module is
installed.)
Different size originals with the same width can be
placed in the document feeder tray and automatically copied onto copy paper of their respective
sizes.
The automatic copy ratio selection will not function
in this case.
Image loss (max. 5/32" (4 mm)) can occur at the
leading and trailing edges of the copies.
Stream feeding mode
The stream feeding mode allows easy operation of continuous
copying from the ADF or RADF. If the stream feeding mode has
been enabled using user program No. 5, the original feed
indicator will continue to blink for approximately 5 seconds after
feeding of all originals is completed. While this indicator is
blinking, any new originals placed in the document feeder tray
will be fed and copied automatically. If the stream feeding mode
has been disabled, the START key must be pressed each time
the originals are set even immediately after completion of a
copy run from the ADF or RADF. The default setting of the
stream feeding mode is “OFF”. See page 34, USER
PROGRAMS.

20-BIN STAPLE SORTER (SF-S56)
There are two sorter modes for different copying jobs:
one sorts copies into sets matching the sequence of the

originals into separate sort bins.
The SF-S54N 10-Bin Staple Sorter and the SF-S56 20Bin Staple Sorter have, in addition to the above two
modes, a STAPLE SORT mode. Sorted copies can be
automatically stapled together.
The maximum allowable number of copies varies with
the selected mode.
The number of copies will be automatically reset to the
maximum number allowable for the selected mode
when copying begins if this maximum is exceeded.
NOTES:
To install the 20-bin staple sorter (SF-S56), an
optional stand/500-sheet paper drawer (SF-D20),

If the specified number of copies is more than the maximum number of copies that can be set, the copy quantity
display will change to the corresponding number in the above table in the SORT, STAPLE SORT, or GROUP
mode after copying starts.
When making single-sided copies from two-sided originals, the maximum number of originals that can be copied
is half the number shown in the above table.
If the sorter bin capacity control is enabled, the copier will stop when the number of originals exceeds the
maximum number in the SORT or STAPLE SORT mode. If the sorter bin capacity control is canceled using user
program No. 6, the copier will continue copying even if the number of originals exceeds the maximum number in
the SORT or STAPLE SORT mode, though copies will not be stapled.
Do not use special paper in the SORT, STAPLE SORT, or GROUP mode.
