Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies
So maybe you have replaced your drum but the light did not reset. Or your copies are fine and you would like to get more copies out of the drum unit rather than just replace it. Here is the procedure.
Press the following key's in sequence and as quickly as possible (with 4 seconds for the first 4 keys)
Press "C" key then the "Auto" key, then the "C" key then the "Auto" key again.
So in other words C, Auto, C, Auto
If done correctly the display should go blank.
Then key in 24 as if you were going to make 24 copies.
Now press the "print" button
Now key in 7 as if you were making 7 copies
Now press the print button again.
You should now be getting flashing zero's or "Drum Reset" on the display.
Turn the machine off then on again and your drum light should be gone!
You can usually reset this counter at least once to get twice the life out of your drum unit.
Works on the Sharp 2020 2040 2060 as well as others.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
