Sharp MX 2615N MX 3115N F2-25.
This blog post will show how to find the cause of the Sharp MX 2615N MX 3115N F2-25 error code.
The F2-25 error code will prevent the machine from working. First try to clear the code by turning the machine off. Turn off with the power switch on the control panel. Then turn off the main power switch. The main power switch is inside the front cover. Open the front cover and the main power switch is on the bottom left. Then turn the machine back on. If after turning on the machine the error reoccurs, call a service tech.
The repair info below is for trained service techs. A basic knowledge of working on MFPs is needed to perform the steps below. An untrained person doing repairs may cause more harm to the machine.
Also applies to machine models:
- Sharp MX 2615N.
- Sharp MX 3115N.
- Sharp MX 2616N.
- Sharp MX3616N.
Also applies to service codes:
- F2-22 Discharge lamp trouble Black (K).
- F2-23 Discharge lamp trouble Cyan (C).
- F2-24 Discharge lamp trouble Magenta (M).
- F2-25 Discharge lamp trouble Yellow (Y).
The error code means:
The lamp is kept open for 1 second from turning on the discharge lamp. The lamp doesn't come on.
- Contact trouble between the discharge lamp PWB and the PCU PWB. (Bad connection)
- Discharge lamp PWB trouble. (Bad discharge LED, which is mounted on a small PWB)
- PCU PWB trouble. (Bad PCU board)
The discharge lamp is a small LED. The DL LED is mounted on a small board.
The discharge LEDs can be found on the frame behind the main drive section. And they are hard to get at. Swapping the LED with one from a different color would help you find out if the LED is bad or not. When you swap the LEDs, if the error code changed to the color that you moved it too, it would mean the LED is at fault. But it is not easy to get to the LED. It is faster to check the drive signal from the PCU PWB.
Check the signal:
Remove the back cover from the machine. Find the PCU PWB. Find connector 14. Set your multi meter to read 5VDC. Place the black or negative lead to ground on the machine frame. Place the red or positive lead to the correct pin as listed below on connector 14.
|DL_K||Discharge lamp black||Discharge the drum||OFF||ON||CN14||8||PCU|
|DL_C||Discharge lamp cyan||Discharge the drum||OFF||ON||CN14||4||PCU|
|DL_M||Discharge lamp magenta||Discharge the drum||OFF||ON||CN14||7||PCU|
|DL_Y||Discharge lamp yellow||Discharge the drum||OFF||ON||CN14||3||PCU|
On connector 14 the pins are numbered like this chart. Check your board to be sure.
Enter the service mode and turn on the discharge lamp.
Used to check the discharge lamp and control circuit. The discharge lamp is turned on for 30 seconds.
|DL_K||Discharge lamp K|
|DL_C||Discharge lamp C|
|DL_M||Discharge lamp M|
|DL_Y||Discharge lamp Y|
Press the execute key, the lamp signal will go high about 2.9VDC. If the signal does not change from low to a high state, the PCU PWB may be at fault.
