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.

BYPASS FEED (including special paper)
The single bypass 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 52g/m2 to 128g/m2 can be used in this tray. (For paper weighing
from 104g/m2 to 128g/m2, A4 is the maximum size.)
• The single bypass can hold one sheet of paper.
• 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.
• If you insert a sheet of paper into the single bypass when multiple
copies have been set with the copy quantity setting (p.15), the copy
quantity setting will change to "0" and only one copy will be made.
• When copying onto transparency film, remove each copy promptly.
Do not let copies stack up.
1
Select copy settings before you begin the copy job.
For information on the copy settings, see "MAKING COPIES" (p.11)".
2
Set the paper guides to the paper width. Insert a single sheet of
copy (print face down) into the feed slot of the single bypass.
When you insert the paper,
the unit will automatically
draw in the paper and begin
copying.
Print face
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.)

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.26).
COPY FLOW
1 Make sure that paper has been loaded in the paper tray (p.8),
and check the paper size (p.7).
3
If paper is not loaded, see page 8. If you are using the single bypass, check
the paper size and then proceed to the next step without loading paper.
2 Turn on the unit (p.12).
3 Place the original.
If you are using the original table, see "ORIGINAL PLACEMENT" (p.14).
When copying onto A4 paper or a large size, pull out the paper output tray
extension.
4 Select the copy settings.
If you wish to copy using the initial settings (p.13), proceed to the next
step.
To set the number of copies, see page 15.
To adjust the resolution and contrast settings, see page 15.
To enlarge or reduce the copy, see page 17.
5 Start copying.
Press the start (
) key.
If you are using the single bypass
Do not press the start (
) key. Insert a
sheet of paper into the single bypass.
(Page 10)
Multiple copies are not possible
using the single bypass.
11
Do not insert paper in the single bypass when a copy job from the paper
tray is in progress. This will cause a misfeed.
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.

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.19).
• 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.19).
12
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
When the unit power is on, the operation panel will revert to the initial settings when
the time set with the "Auto clear time" setting (p.18) elapses after a copy or scanner
job is finished, or when the clear (
) key is pressed twice.
The initial settings of the operation panel are shown below.

SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
This chapter describes the special functions of this unit. Use these functions as
needed.
DESCRIPTION OF SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
Toner save mode (page 18)
Reduces toner consumption by approximately 10%.
Power save modes (page 19)
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

receipt. SHARP will have no responsibility to replace a disk damaged by accident, abuse or
misapplication.
ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ON THE DISKS, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED IN
