Gently push the paper tray back into the unit.
• After loading paper, to cancel the blinking
without restarting
copying, press the clear (
) key. The
in the display will go out
and the start (
) indicator will light up.
• Be sure that paper is free of rips, dust, wrinkles, and curled or bent edges.
• Make sure all the paper in the stack is the same size and type.
• When loading paper, ensure there is no space between the paper and
the guide, and check if the guide is not set too narrow causing the
paper to bend. Loading paper in these ways will result in document
skew or a paper jam.
• When not using the unit for an extended period, remove all paper from
the paper tray and store it in a dry place. If paper is left in the unit for
an extended period, the paper will absorb moisture from the air,
resulting in paper jams.
• When adding new paper to the paper tray, remove the old paper already
contained in the tray. Placing new paper on top of the paper already
contained in the tray may result in feeding two sheets at one time.
• If output paper curls, it may help to turn the paper over when loading it in
the tray.

BYPASS FEED (including special paper)
The multi-bypass tray can be used to feed standard paper, transparency film, labels,
envelopes, and other special purpose paper. Paper measuring from A6 to A4 and in
the weight range of 56 to 128g/m2 can be used in this tray. (For paper weighing from
105 to 128g/m2, A4 is the maximum size.)
• The multi-bypass tray can hold maximum of 50 sheets of paper.
(Capacity will vary depending on the type of paper loaded.)
• 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.
The multi-bypass tray
1

• Paper must be fed narrow side into the feed slot.
• Transparency film, labels, envelopes, and other special
purpose papers must be fed individually.
• When copying onto transparency film, remove each copy
promptly. Do not let copies stack up. When loading an
envelope, make sure that it is straight and flat.
3
Press the tray select (
) key to select the multi-bypass tray.

Note for loading envelopes
• Envelopes must be fed narrow side into the feed slot one at a time.
• Do not use non-standard envelopes, and envelopes that have metal
clasps, plastic snappers, string closures, windows, linings, self-adhesive,
patches or synthetic materials. Do not use envelopes that are filled with
air or envelopes that have labels or stamps attached.
• Envelopes of which the surface is not flat because of embossing may
cause the copies/prints to become smudged.
• Under high humidity and temperature conditions the glue flaps on some
envelopes may become sticky and be sealed closed when copied/
printed.
• Use only envelopes which are flat and crisply folded. Curled or poorly
formed envelopes may be poorly copied/printed or may cause misfeeds.
• It is recommended that you perform a test copy before performing the
actual copied/printed job.
• Be sure to select either Com 10, DL, C5 or Monarch on the paper size
setting of the printer driver. (For detailed information on printer driver,
refer to the online manual.)
Note for loading thick paper
Copying on thick paper requires higher fusing temperature setting. Set the user
program 29 to "2 (High)" when using thick paper. (See page 43 and 44.)

MAKING COPIES
This chapter explains basic and other copying functions.
The unit is equipped with a one-page memory buffer. This memory allows the unit to
scan an original once only and make up to 99 copies. This feature improves
workflow, reduces operation noise from the copier, and provides higher reliability by
reducing wear and tear on the scanning mechanism.
If the unit does not function properly during use, or if a function cannot
be used, see "TROUBLESHOOTING THE UNIT" (p.50).
COPY FLOW
1 Make sure that paper has been loaded in the paper tray (p.8) or multibypass tray (p.10), and check the paper size (p.7).
If paper is not loaded, see page 8.
2 Turn on the unit (p.13).
3 Place the original.
If you are using the original table, see "Using the original table" (p.15).
If you are using the SPF, see "Using the SPF" (p.16).
When copying onto paper larger than A4, pull out the paper output tray
extension.
4 Select the copy settings.
If you wish to copy using the initial settings (p.14), proceed to the next step.
To set the number of copies, see page 17.
To adjust the resolution and contrast settings, see page 17.
To enlarge or reduce the copy, see page 19.
To change the tray used, see page 19.
5 Start copying.
Press the start (
12
) key.
CONNECTING THE POWER CORD
If you use the unit in a country other than the country where the unit was
purchased, you will need to make sure that your local power supply is
compatible with your model. If you plug the unit into an incompatible
power supply, irreparable damage to the unit will result.
1
Ensure that the power switch of
the unit is in the OFF position.
Insert the attached power cord
into the power cord socket at the
rear of the unit.
2
Plug the other end of the power cord into the nearest outlet.
3
Only insert the power cord into a properly grounded wall socket.
Do not use extension cords or power strips.
Power on
Ensure that the power switch of the unit is
in the OFF position. Plug the other end of
the power cord into the nearest outlet.
Turn the power switch on the left side of
the unit to the "ON" position. The start
( ) indicator will light up and other
indicators which show the initial settings
of the operation panel will also light up to
indicate the ready condition. For the initial
settings, see the "Initial settings of
operation panel" described on the next page.
• The unit will enter a power save mode once the set time has elapsed
without any unit operation. The settings of the power save modes can
be modified. See "USER PROGRAMS" (p.43).
• The unit will return to the initial settings a preset amount of time after
the end of copy or scanning job. The preset amount of time (auto
clear time) can be changed. See "USER PROGRAMS" (p.43).

About the scan head
The scan head lamp remains on constantly when the unit is in the ready condition
(when the start ( ) indicator is illuminated).
The unit 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 unit
trouble.
Initial settings of operation panel

SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
This chapter describes the special functions of this unit. Use these functions as needed.
DESCRIPTION OF SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
Toner save mode (page 42)
Reduces toner consumption by approximately 10%.
Power save modes (page 43)
The unit has two power save modes of operation: preheat mode and auto power
shut-off mode.
Preheat mode
When the unit 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 unit is maintained at a lower heat level, thereby saving power. To copy from
the preheat mode, make desired copier selections and press the start ( ) key
using the normal copying procedure.
Auto power shut-off mode
When the unit enters the auto power shut-off mode, the power save ( ) indicator
will light up and other indicators will go out. The auto power shut-off mode saves

MAINTENANCE
This chapter describes how to replace the toner cartridge and how to clean unit.
Be sure to use only genuine SHARP parts and supplies.
For best copying results, be sure to use only SHARP Genuine
Supplies which are designed, engineered, and tested to maximise the
life and performance of SHARP copiers. Look for the Genuine
Supplies label on the toner package.
TONER CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT
When the toner cartridge replacement required ( ) indicator lights up, replacement
of the toner cartridge will be needed soon. Obtain a new cartridge. When the toner
cartridge replacement required ( ) indicator blinks, the toner cartridge must be
replaced before copying can be resumed. Replace the toner cartridge by following
the procedure below.
During long copy run of a dark original, the start (
) indicator may
blink, the indicator light up, and the unit stop, even though toner is left.
The unit will feed toner up to 2 minutes and then the start (
) indicator
will light up. Press the start (

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.
MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
Chronic Effect
Page : 4/4
Date Issued : Nov. 1, 2007
MSDS No. F-01601
: In a study in rats of chronic inhalation exposure to a typical toner, a mild to moderate degree of
3
lung fibrosis was observed in 92% of the rats in the high concentration (16mg/m ) exposure
group, and a minimal to mild degree of fibrosis was noted in 22% of the animals in the middle
3
3
(4mg/m ) exposure group, but no pulmonary change was reported in the lowest (1mg/m )
exposure group, the most relevant level to potential human exposures.

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.
MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
Chronic Effect
Page : 4/4
Date Issued : Nov.01, 2007
MSDS No. F-31601
: In a study in rats of chronic inhalation exposure to a typical toner, a mild to moderate degree of
3
lung fibrosis was observed in 92% of the rats in the high concentration (16mg/m ) exposure
group, and a minimal to mild degree of fibrosis was noted in 22% of the animals in the middle
3
3
(4mg/m ) exposure group, but no pulmonary change was reported in the lowest (1mg/m )
exposure group, the most relevant level to potential human exposures.
