OPERATION MANUALS
The following operation manuals are provided for the machine. Please read the appropriate manuals as needed for
the features you wish to learn about.
● Operation manual (for general information and copier operation) (this manual):
The first half of this manual provides general information about the machine, including safety information, loading
paper, removing misfeeds, and regular maintenance.
The second half of the manual explains how to use the copy and document filing functions.
● Key operator's guide:
This primarily explains key operator programs for machine management and copier related functions. Key
operator programs for the printer and network scanner functions are explained in the manuals for those functions.
Key operator programs are used by key operators to configure function settings to meet the needs of the
customer.
● Operation manual (for facsimile)
This manual explains the procedures for using the machine as a facsimile. To use the fax function, the facsimile
expansion kit must be installed.
● Software setup guide (for printer)
This explains how to connect the machine to your computer, install the printer driver for Windows, and configure
the printer driver settings.
● Operation manual (for printer)*
This manual explains the procedures for using the machine as a printer.
● Operation manual (for network scanner)*
This manual explains the procedures for using the machine as a network scanner when connected to a computer.
To use the network scanner function, the machine must be configured for use as a network printer and the AR-
NS3 network scanner expansion kit must be installed.
* The Operation manual (for printer) and the Operation manual (for network scanner) are provided as PDF files
in the CD-ROM.
These manuals are not provided as printed manuals.
NOTES
● Considerable care has been taken in preparing this manual. If you have any comments or concerns about the

Improper installation may damage this product. Please note the following during initial installation and whenever the
machine is moved.
1.The machine should be installed near an
accessible power outlet for easy connection.
2.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.
● For the power supply requirements, see the
name plate on the back of the main unit.
3.Do not install your machine 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.
4.Be sure to allow the required space around the
machine for servicing and proper ventilation.
A small amount of ozone is produced within the printer 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/m
3
) 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.

CAUTIONS
1. Do not touch the photoconductive drum. Scratches or smudges on the
drum will cause dirty prints.
2. The fusing unit is extremely hot.  Exercise care in this area. 
3. Do not look directly at the light source. Doing so may damage your
eyes.
4. Four adjusters are provided on all optional stand/paper drawer units.
These adjusters should be lowered until they contact the floor. 
When moving the machine with the optional stand/paper drawer, be
sure to raise the adjusters. Also, unlock the two casters at the front of
the optional stand/paper drawer. After moving the machine, lower the
four adjusters until they reach the floor and lock the two casters.
5. Do not make any modifications to this machine. Doing so may result in
personal injury or damage to the machine.
6. Since this machine is heavy, it is recommended that it be moved by
more than one person to prevent injury.
7. When connecting this machine to a computer, be sure to first turn both
the computer and the machine off.
8. Do not make copies of anything which is prohibited from copying by
law. The following items are normally prohibited from printing by
national law. Other items may be prohibited by local law.
 Money  
 Stamps

Caution:
This connector (A) is only intended for service purposes.
Any connection to this terminal may cause malfunctions of the machine.
Instruction for service technician:
The cable length for the service terminal has to be less than 3m (118").
The machine includes the document filing function, which stores document image data on the machine's hard disk.
Stored documents can be called up and printed or transmitted as needed. If a hard disk failure occurs, it will no
longer be possible to call up the stored document data. To prevent the loss of important documents in the unlikely
event of a hard disk failure, keep the originals of important documents or store the original data elsewhere. 
With the exception of instances provided for by law, Sharp Corporation bears no responsibility for any damages
or loss due to the loss of stored document data.
