F1-00 lost communication with the finisher, check the connection between the copier and the finisher. Shut the machine off, reset the connector then restart the machine.

Error code F1-15

You have a problem with tray movement in the finisher/sorter area. Sometimes those trays get slightly bnt if somebody leans on them and they dont strike the sensor in the center properly. If not then maybe the upper and lower limit sensors need to be cleaned or replaced

I have a Sharp AR 407 copy machine and when I turn it on it displays an F1-11 error code. Please help me. I work for a nonprofit and we really can't afford to pay someone to fix it. Thank you!

The problem is in your finisher and the quickest solution to get your copier running is to unplug the finisher and move it away from the copier. Take a tray off the finisher and put it on the copier where the paper comes out. (If the paper comes out too slow and causes a misfeed the tension springs need to be put back on over the exit rollers in the left door, write if you still have trouble)

The Engrish service manual sayeth:
F1-11: Finisher 1 pusher motor trouble/Finisher 2 boomerang rotation abnormality.

What this doublespeak means is that something is blocking your motor's ability to function when it goes through its' power on self test. First thing you should never do is put anything near, around, or under the finisher. I went on a lot of calls for F1 errors and either unjammed a finisher from the wall or unstuck a toner or paper box from under the tray. Next thing is to open the front door, move the plate from side to side, and look for bits of paper wedged in anywhere. Spray any photoelectric sensor you see with a can of air. And check those squishy orange rollers and see if they're swollen. Could be you have a dead motor, which would be at the rear of the finisher or inside one of the trays. Good luck!!

Error Code F1-87 Finisher Trouble on Sharp AR-M350U+

It is a stapler rotation error. The stapling tray pressure arms become dull at the tips, so when the stapler attempts to move into position to make the staple it cannot move the guides out of the way.

First choice) Replace the (4) stapling tray pressure arms (LSTPP0357FCZZ). After you replace them you'll see that the tips get worn down, and wedge into place so that the black support plates cannot move out of the way of the stapler. The black plates look warped, but they aren't (I should say they always look like that).

They are fairly easy to get to. You do have to remove the finisher from the copier. Remove the front and rear covers. Open the right door. Pull the pins that retain the door. From there you'll see the arms. They can be changed with a little maneuvering.

2nd Choice) Clip overtight wire ties to the stapler rotation home position sensor.

3rd Choice) Shake down the stapler to its bottommost position (wherever it settles is fine). Adjust the flag that triggers the stapler home position sensor. If I remember correctly its the narrow **** in the flag.

Generally F codes have to do with the finisher(used to be called a sorter). with the machine off, diconnect the finisher cord from the copier and power back on. This should allow you to test the copier. I'm not sure on this model how exactly the finisher cord comes out. but it should be self explanitory when you see it.

Copier problem - service code F1-70

F1-70 is communication trouble between the machine and the sorter finisher. Check the cables connecting the copier and the finisher and power off and on machine. Should clear the code. If problem persists, may need a new board.

I would also check the ground between the copier and finisher.
