    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.

    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.

    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.

    Only insert the power cord into a properly grounded wall socket.

    Do not use extension cords or power strips.

    • 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.55).

    • The unit will return to the initial settings a preset amount of time after

    the end of copy or scanner job. The preset amount of time (auto clear

    time) can be changed. See "USER PROGRAMS" (p.55).

    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.55) 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.

    When copying is begun in this state, the settings in the following table are used.

    Power off methods

    If not used for a certain period of time, the unit will automatically enter auto power

    and pull the paper tray out until it

    stops.

    2

    Remove the pressure plate lock. Rotate the pressure plate lock

    in the direction of the arrow to remove it while pressing down

    the pressure plate of the paper tray.

    3

    Store the pressure plate lock which has been removed in step

    2. To store the pressure plate lock, rotate the lock to fix it on the

    relevant location.

    4

    Adjust the paper guides on the paper tray to the copy paper

    Fan the paper and insert it into the tray. Make sure the edges go

    under the corner hooks.

    6

    Gently push the paper tray back into the unit.

    Do not load paper above the maximum height line ( ). Exceeding

    the line will cause a paper misfeed.

    • 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 multi-bypass tray (AL-1551CS) or the single bypass (AL-1215/AL-1530CS/AL-

    1540CS) 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. (52g/m

    2

    to 128g/m

    2

    ) can be used in

    this tray. (For paper weighing from 28 lbs. to 34.5 lbs. (105g/m

    2

    to 128g/m

    2

    ),

    8-1/2" x 11" is the maximum size.)

    The multi-bypass tray (AL-1551CS)

    1

    Open the multi-bypass tray and extend the tray.

    2

    Set the paper guides to the paper width. Insert the paper (print

    face down) all the way into the multi-bypass tray.

    • The multi-bypass tray (AL-1551CS) can hold maximum of 50 sheets

    of paper. (Capacity will vary depending on the type of paper loaded.)

    The single bypass (AL-1215/AL-1530CS/AL-1540CS) 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.

    To close the multi-

    bypass tray,

    perform step 1

    and then step 2 in

    the illustration and

    push the round

    • Paper must be fed narrow side into the feed slot.

    Special papers such as transparency film, labels, and envelopes

    must be fed one sheet at a time through the multi-bypass tray.

    • When copying onto transparency film, remove each copy

    promptly. Do not let copies stack up.

    • If you insert a sheet of paper into the single bypass when multiple

    copies have been set with the copy quantity setting (p.49), 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.

    Note for loading envelopes

    • Envelopes must be fed narrow side into the feed slot 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 printed or may cause misfeeds.

    • Be sure to select either Com10, DL, C5 or Monarch on the paper size setting of the

    printer driver. (For detailed information on printer driver, refer to the online manual.)

    • It is recommended that you perform a test print before performing the actual copied/

    printed job.

    Flow of the Button Manager setting

    The Button Manager can directly handle a AL-xxxx (where xxxx is the model name of

    your unit) series device event and start your selected application according to the

    scan setting made on the AL-xxxx (where xxxx is the model name of your unit)

    operation panel (SC1, SC2, SC3, SC4, SC5, SC6).

    This will scan directly into your application from the device.

    The settings for the Windows Event Manager for

    the SHARP AL-xxxx (where xxxx is the model

    name of your unit) device allow the user to take

    advantage of the Sharp Button Manager to take

    control of events from Windows and send

    scanned images to any application that can be

    selected in Button Manager.

    This can be done with the Windows OS showing

    the Event Manager selection dialog or directly

    into a selected application if the Button Manager

    is the only allowed handler for device events

    from the SHARP AL-xxxx (where xxxx is the

    model name of your unit).

    This is done by changing the Windows device

    settings for the AL-xxxx (where xxxx is the model

    name of your unit) in the Scanner and Camera

    device settings in the Control Panel.

    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 AL-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.

    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.

    COPY FLOW

    1 Make sure that paper has been loaded in the paper tray (p.15)

    or multi-bypass tray (p.17), and check the paper size (p.14).

    If paper is not loaded, see page 15. If you are using the single bypass,

    check the paper size and then proceed to the next step without loading

    paper.

    2 Place the original.

    If you are using the original table, see "Using the original table" (p.47).

    If you are using the SPF/RSPF, see "Using the SPF/RSPF" (p.48).

    When copying onto paper larger than 8-1/2" x 11" size, pull out the paper

    output tray extension.

    4 Start copying.

    Press the start ( ) key.

    3 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 49.

    To adjust the resolution and contrast settings, see page 49.

    To enlarge or reduce the copy, see page 51.

    About interrupt copying

    If you press the start ( ) key to begin a copy job while a print job using the paper

    tray or multi-bypass tray is in progress, the copy job will begin automatically after the

    print data in the unit's memory is printed (interrupt copying). When this is done, the

    print data remaining in the computer is not sent to the unit. When the copy job ends,

    press the clear ( ) key twice, or press the ON LINE key once to change the unit to

    the online state (p.31), or wait until the set auto clear time (p.55) elapses. The

    remaining print data will be sent to the unit and printing will resume. Interrupt copying

    is not possible during a print job using the single bypass.

    ORIGINAL PLACEMENT

    Using the original table

    1

    Open the original cover/SPF/RSPF, and place the original.

    2

    Place an original face down on the original table. Align it with

    the original scale and the centering ( ) mark. Gently close the

    original cover/SPF/RSPF.

    Do not insert paper in the single bypass when a copy job from the paper

    tray is in progress. This will cause a misfeed.

    • If you start a print job while a copy job is in progress, the print job will

    begin when the copy job is completed.

    • The scanning function cannot be used while a copy job is in progress.

    • The original table can read up to 8-1/2" x 14" original.

    • Image loss 5/32" (4mm) can occur at the leading and trailing edges of

    the copies. Also image loss 11/64" (4.5mm) in total can occur along

    the other edges of the copies.

    • When copying a book or an original which has been folded or a

    crumpled original, press down the original cover lightly. If the original

    cover is not securely closed, the copies may be striped or blurred.

    Using the SPF/RSPF

    The SPF/RSPF 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. (52g/m

    2

    to 90g/m

    2

    ).

    1

    Make sure that no original is left on the original table.

    2

    Adjust the original guides to the size

    of originals.

    3

    Set the originals face up in the

    original feeder tray.

    Stream feeding mode

    The stream feeding mode allows easy operation of continuous copying from the

    SPF/RSPF. If the stream feeding mode has been enabled using user program No.4,

    the SPF/RSPF ( ) indicator will blink approximately 5 seconds after the last

    original has been fed by the SPF/RSPF. 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

    SPF/RSPF. The default setting of the stream feeding mode is "ON". See "USER

    PROGRAMS" (p.55).

    • 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 SPF/RSPF ( ) indicator on the operation panel will light up. If

    this indicator does not light up, the originals are not properly set or the

    SPF/RSPF is not properly closed.

    • Badly damaged originals may misfeed in the SPF/RSPF. It is

    recommended that such originals be copied from the original table.

    • Special originals such as transparency film should not be fed through

    the SPF/RSPF, but should be placed directly on the original table.

    • Image loss (max. 5/32" (4mm)) can occur at the leading and trailing

    edges of the copies. Also image loss (max. 11/64" (4.5mm) in total)

    can occur along the other edges of the copies. It can be 15/64" (6mm)

    (max.) at the trailing edge of the second copy of two-sided copying.

    • To stop continuous copying using the SPF/RSPF, press the clear

    ()

    key.

    • Copying using one-sided to one-sided mode (AL-1551CS):

    Ensure that no indicator is lit among the original to copy indicators.

    This chapter describes how to replace the TD cartridge and drum cartridge and how

    to clean the unit.

    TD CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT

    The TD cartridge replacement required ( ) indicator will light up when toner is

    needed. For more information on purchasing the TD cartridge, see "ABOUT

    SUPPLIES AND OPTIONS" (p.70). If copying is continued while the indicator is lit,

    copies will gradually become lighter until the unit stops and the indicator begins

    blinking. Replace the old TD cartridge by following the procedure below.

    1

    Open the multi-bypass tray (AL-1551CS), side cover, and front

    cover, in that order.

    To open the multi-bypass tray, see "The multi-bypass tray (AL-1551CS)"

    (p.17). To open the side cover and front cover, see "INSTALLING THE TD

    CARTRIDGE" (p.10).

    2

    Gently pull the TD cartridge out

    while pressing the lock release

    button.

    3

    Install a new TD cartridge. To install the new cartridge, see

    "INSTALLING THE TD CARTRIDGE" (p.10).

    Be sure to use only genuine SHARP parts and supplies.

    • After the unit stops, it may be possible to make a few more copies by

    taking the TD cartridge out of the unit, shaking it horizontally, then

    reinstalling it. If copying is not possible after this operation, replace the

    TD cartridge.

    • 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 ( ) key to restart copying.

    In order to help preserve the global environment, we recycle used TD

    cartridges. Please read "COPIER TONER CARTRIDGE RECYCLING",

    which is enclosed in the new toner cartridge package.

    internal counter reaches approximately 17,000 copies, the drum replacement

    required ( ) indicator will light up indicating that replacement of the drum cartridge

    will be needed soon. For more information on purchasing the drum cartridge, see

    "ABOUT SUPPLIES AND OPTIONS" (p.70). When the indicator begins to blink, the

    unit will stop operating until the cartridge is replaced. Replace the drum cartridge at

    this time.

    1

    Remove the TD cartridge (see "TD CARTRIDGE

    REPLACEMENT" (p.57)).

    2

    Hold the drum cartridge handle and

    gently pull the cartridge out. Dispose

    of the old drum cartridge in

    accordance with local regulations.

    3

    Remove the new drum cartridge from the protective bag and

    remove the protective cover from the cartridge. Then gently

    install the new drum cartridge.

    When closing the covers, be sure to close the front cover securely and

    then close the side cover. If the covers are closed in the wrong order,

    the covers may be damaged.

    Do not remove the protective cover on the drum portion (black paper) of

    a new drum cartridge before use. The cover protects the drum against

    external light.

    Do not touch the surface of the drum (green portion) of the

    cartridge. Doing so may cause smudges on the copies.

    MOVING AND STORING THE UNIT

    Moving instructions

    When moving the unit, follow the procedure below.

    1

    Turn the power switch off and remove the power cord from the

    outlet.

    2

    Open the side cover and front cover, in that order. Remove the

    TD cartridge and close the front cover and side cover, in that

    order.

    cartridge, see "TD CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT" (p.57).

    3

    Raise the handle of the paper tray and pull the paper tray out

    until it stops.

    4

    Push the center of the pressure plate down until it locks in

    place and lock the plate using the pressure plate lock which

    has been stored in the front of the paper tray.

    5

    Push the paper tray back into the unit.

    6

    Lock the scan head locking switch (p.9).

    7

    Close the multi-bypass tray and the paper output tray

    extension, and attach the packing materials and tape which

    were removed during installation of the unit. See "PREPARING

    THE UNIT FOR INSTALLATION" (p.8).

    8

    Pack the unit into the carton. See "CHECKING PACKED

    COMPONENTS AND ACCESSORIES" (p.8).

    Proper storage

    Store the supplies in a location that is:

    • clean and dry,

    • at a stable temperature,

    • not exposed to direct sunlight

    Store paper in the wrapper and lying flat.

    • Paper stored out of the wrapper or in packages standing on end may curl or get

    damp, resulting in paper misfeeds.

    When moving this unit, be sure to remove the TD cartridge in advance.

    When shipping the unit, the scan head locking switch must be locked to

    prevent shipping damage.

    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.
