COPIER INSTALLATION
GETTING STARTED
Improper installation may damage the copier. Please note the following
during initial installation and whenever the copier is moved.
If the copier is moved from a cool place to a warm place, condensation may form inside the copier.
Operation in this condition will cause poor copy quality and malfunctions. Leave the copier at room
temperature for at least 2 hours before use.
Copier installation
Do not install your copier in areas that are:
●
damp, humid, or very dusty
●
exposed to direct sunlight
●
poorly ventilated
●
subject to extreme temperature or humidity changes, e.g., near an
air conditioner or heater.
The copier should be installed near an accessible power outlet
for easy connection.
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.
Connect the copier to a power outlet which is not used
for other electric appliances. If a lighting fixture is
connected to the same outlet, the light may flicker.
Be sure to allow the required space around the machine for
servicing and proper ventilation.
4" (10 cm)
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.
8
CAUTIONS ON HANDLING
GETTING STARTED
GETTING STARTED
Be careful in handling the copier as follows to maintain the performance of
this copier.
Do not drop the copier, subject it to shock or strike it against any
object.
Cautions on handling
Store spare toner cartridges in a cool dry place without removing
from the package before use.
If they are exposed to direct sunlight or excessive heat, poor copies
may result.
Do not touch the photoconductive drum (green portion).
Scratches or smudges on the drum will cause dirty copies.
9

POWER SAVE MODES
The copier has two power save modes to reduce overall power consumption
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 90 sec. for preheat mode and 30 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. See page 35.
Preheat mode
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 10 seconds after any key
input or copier operation such as paper tray operation is performed.
Auto power shut-off 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.

As an ENERGY STAR® Partner, SHARP
has determined that this product meets
the ENERGY STAR® guidelines for
energy efficiency.

POWER SAVE MODES
Setting the power save modes
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. For these settings, see page 36.
●
The copier will enter the preheat mode first and then the auto power shutoff mode after a preset time has elapsed when no copier operation has been
made.
●
If conflicting settings are made with user programs No. 3 and No.5, the last
program set will have priority.
Copying from the preheat mode

●
When any key input is made or any other copier operation is made, the

SINGLE PASS FEEDER (AR-SP2)
Using the SPF
●
●
●
Be sure to remove any staples or paper clips from the
originals.
Damaged or crumpled originals may misfeed in the SPF.
It is recommended that these originals be copied from the
original table.
Before placing curled or wavy originals into the document
feeder tray, be sure to flatten them. If not, original misfeeds
may result.
●
●
For best feeding of originals which have binding holes
punched into them, insert them so that the holes are
positioned to the right or along the side guides.
Special originals such as transparency film and tracing
paper should not be fed through the SPF but should be
copied from the original table.
Stream feeding mode
If the stream feeding mode has been enabled using user program
No. 4, the SPF 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 SPF will be
fed and copied automatically. See page 35, USER PROGRAMS.

Hazardous Identification (Emergency Overview)
Toner is a fine, black powder possessing no immediate hazard. There are no anticipated carcinogenic effects from
exposure based on animal tests performed using toner. When used as intended according to instructions, studies
do not indicate any symptoms of fibrosis will occur.

Health Hazard Data
Route(s) of Entry:
Inhalation?
Skin?
Ingestion?
Yes
No
Possible but very unusual.
Health Hazards: Acute oral toxicity ------- LDL0 of this toner is over 2,000mg/kg.
Mutagenicity ------------- The result of Ames test is negative.
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.
Chronic Effect: In a study in rats of chronic inhalation exposure to a typical toner, a mild to moderate degree of
lung fibrosis was observed in 92% of the rats in the high concentration (16mg/m3) exposure
group, and a minimal to mild degree of fibrosis was noted in 22% of the animals in the middle
(4mg/m3) exposure group, but no pulmonary change was reported in the lowest (1mg/m3)
exposure group, the most relevant level to potential human exposures.
Signs and Symptoms of Exposure: Minimal irritation to respiratory tract may occur as with exposure to any
non-toxic dust.
Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: None
Emergency and First Aid Procedures:
Inhalation; Remove to fresh air. If effects occur, consult medical personnel.
Eye;
In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with water for 15 minutes.
