Question about Sharp Office Equipment & Supplies
Printouts appear with dirty background after installing new toner cartridge. i even changed the drum to eliminate the problem but still the same.
Model: Sharp AL-2040-CS Copier
The most likely problem is not with the drum unit but rather with the developer unit and there is a leakage current within the unit causing the 'ghosting' on the printed images.
I would suggest that you replace the developer unit within the system. It is quite possible that the waste toner blade is contaminated with debris from using non-OEM toner within the unit. Therefore leaving residual toner particles on the surface of the drum.
Try this solution and see if that corrects your problem. This solution can be applied to virtually any laser printer, copier or MFP device in the industry. The problem is nearly 99% of the time related to CHEAP toner cartridges that are refilled or refurbished and the company doing the work does NOT replace the cleaning blades within the units, and they use a generic polyester-resin toner that does not conform to manufacturer standards.
I worked as a Design Engineer for Kyocera-Mita America for nearly 6 years and have seen this problem many times in the industry. The price you save on using recycled cartridges ends up costing you more when you have to replace a developer or drum unit.
Hope this information helps you out.
