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 multi-bypass tray can be used to feed standard paper, transparency film, labels,
envelopes and other special purpose paper. Paper measuring from 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" to
8-1/2" x 14" and in the weight range of 14 lbs. to 34.5 lbs. can be used in this tray.
(For paper weighing from 28 lbs. to 34.5 lbs., 8-1/2" x 11" 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.

• 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.30).
COPY FLOW
1 Make sure that paper has been loaded in the paper tray (p.8)
or multi-bypass 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.14).
If you are using the RSPF/SPF, see "Using the RSPF/SPF" (p.15).
When copying onto paper larger than 8-1/2" x 11" 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 16.
To adjust the resolution and contrast settings, see page 16.
To enlarge or reduce the copy, see page 18.
To change the tray, see page 19.
To print on both sides of paper, see page 20. (AR-157E)

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.22) 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.

Using the RSPF/SPF
The RSPF/SPF is designed to hold up to 30 originals measuring from 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
to 8-1/2" x 14" and weighting from 14 lbs. to 23.9 lbs.
• Before feeding originals in the original feeder tray, be sure to remove
any staples or paper clips from them.
• Before placing curled or wavy originals into the original feeder tray, be
sure to flatten them. If not, original misfeeds may result.
• The RSPF/SPF (
) indicator on the operation panel will light up. If
this indicator does not light up, the originals are not properly set or the
RSPF/SPF is not properly closed.
• Badly damaged originals may misfeed in the RSPF/SPF. It is
recommended that such originals be copied from the original table.
• Special originals such as transparency film should not be fed through
the RSPF/SPF, but should be placed directly on the original table.
• Image loss (max. 5/32") can occur at the leading and trailing edges of
the copies. Also image loss (max. 11/64" in total) can occur along the
other edges of the copies. It can be 15/64" (max.) at the trailing edge
of the second copy of two-sided copying.
• To stop continuous copying using the RSPF/SPF, press the clear
(
) key.
• Copying using one-sided to one-sided mode (AR-157E):
Ensure that no indicator is lit among the original to copy indicators.

Stream feeding mode
The stream feeding mode allows easy operation of continuous copying from the
RSPF/SPF. If the stream feeding mode has been enabled using user program No.4,
the RSPF/SPF (
) indicator will blink approximately 5 seconds after the last
original has been fed by the RSPF/SPF. While this indicator is blinking, any new
originals placed in the original 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
RSPF/SPF. The default setting of the stream feeding mode is "ON". See "USER

needed.
ABOUT THE SPECIAL FUNCTIONS OF AR-157E
Two sided copying
When copying from the RSPF, two-side originals can be copied automatically
without having to manually turn them over. Automatic two-sided copying can also be
performed without using the RSPF. When copying from one-sided originals to twosided copies, copying orientation can be selected between Turn on Long Edge and
Turn on Short Edge.
• When making two-sided copies from the original table, the paper size
must be letter. When making two-sided copies from the RSPF, letter,
legal, and invoice sizes can be used. Non-standard size paper cannot
be used.
• When making two-sided copies, the multi-bypass tray cannot be used.
• When using two-sided invoice size originals from the RSPF, be sure
to place them in the landscape orientation. Otherwise, an original
misfeed will occur.

DESCRIPTION OF SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
Toner save mode (page 22)
Reduces toner consumption by approximately 10%.
Power save modes (page 23)
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 except the ONLINE indicator will go out. The auto
power shut-off mode saves more power than the preheat mode but requires a
longer time before starting copying. To copy from the auto power shut-off mode,
press the start ( ) key. Then make desired copier selections and press the start
( ) key using the normal copying procedure.
Auto clear (page 23)
The unit returns to the initial settings a preset amount of time after the end of copy, or
scanner job. This preset amount of time (auto clear time) can be changed.
Stream feeding mode (page 23)
For description of the stream feeding mode, see "Stream feeding mode" (p.15).

All About The Windows Event Manager and scanner events in
Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
Windows Platforms provide a mechanism for software to handle external events for
a scanner device like the SHARP AR-xxxx (where xxxx is the model name of your
unit) series products. This mechanism is controlled by the device manager on a
device basis. Applications that can handle events from a scanner/camera device
register with the Windows Event Manager and shown as available in the registered
applications. The path an event takes to get to the user's selected application
depends upon the event settings for the device.

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.
Section 5.
Health Hazard Data
Route(s) of Entry:
Inhalation?
Skin?
Ingestion?
Yes
No
Possible but very unusual.
Health Hazards: Acute oral toxicity ------------- LDLo 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.

during long term exposure, as with any non-toxic dust.
Engineering Control / Ventilation:
Not required.
Work / Hygienic Practice:
Inhalation should be minimized as with any non-toxic
dust.
Steps to be taken in case of Spill or Leak: Sweep up or clean up with vacuum cleaner.

Reference: Scanning an Image from a TWAINCompliant Application
CHECK3 Have you specified all scanning preferences
appropriately?
Setting a large area with full color together with a high
resolution setting, makes the data size large, resulting in
extended scanning times. It is recommended to set the
scanning preferences depending on the type of original
to be scanned, i.e., Text, Text/Graphics, Photograph,
Color, Black & White.
CHECK4 Is there enough computer memory?
Your computer may not have enough available memory
to hold the document you want to scan. Lower the scan
resolution.
CHECK5 Has the specified period of program timeout
already elapsed?
Neither printing nor scanning jobs can be sent to the
unit from your computer during the specified period of
program timeout after copying.
To send a scanning job immediately, press the clear
( ) key twice, ONLINE key or SCANNER key on the
unit.
Reference: For more detail, refer to "USER
PROGRAMS" in the Operation Manual.
RSPF/SPF at once?
When multiple originals are loaded in the RSPF/SPF, it
depends on your application whether only one original
can be scanned in a single operation, or whether
multiple originals can be scanned. Check which is
possible in your application. (Sharpdesk allows multiple
originals to be scanned in a single operation.)
CHECK7 Does your computer's operating system
support the scanner driver?
The operating systems that support the unit's scanner
driver are Windows 98/Me/2000/XP.
CHECK8 Are you using an appropriate interface?
Only the USB interface can be used for the unit's scanning
function. Make sure the unit is connected to your computer
with a USB cable. If the unit was connected to your
computer with a parallel cable when you installed the
SHARP Personal MFP series software, uninstall the
SHARP Personal MFP series software. Refer to
"INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE" in the Operation Manual
for the order of installation of the SHARP Personal MFP
series software and connection of the USB cable, and
reinstall the SHARP Personal MFP series software.

CHECK9 Have the scanner driver and Button Manager
been installed properly?
If normal scanning still cannot be performed even after
confirming the items on the above check list, delete SHARP
Personal MFP series software and then reinstall it.
