Maintenance TA is indicating the machine has reached its 100K scheduled service interval. It requires Transfer Belt Unit, Usually Black Drum & Developer, any feed rollers wornout replaced, any old firmware updated to latest version, and a general clean & check. It is reset in service mode once these parts are replaced.

If these parts are serviceable and working fine you can reset the counters by entering the service mode. once in enter 24
then 4. This will enable to to select maint all and col all. once these are cleared however it is likely you will encounter maintenace cose Vk Vc Vm Vy DK DC DM DY if this happens go back into 24 and select drum clear on the choosen colour, and 24 again for dev counter clear.

Msg on my Sharp MX2300N

The TA code refers to the maintenance cycle of the copier. Its the copiers way of saying ''come and see if im ok''. I would recommend resetting the maintenance counters for your drums, developer, fuser and transfer belts. This can be done in the engineers menus.

What does Maintenance needed, Code TA mean?

Most of the time it means nothing. Do this.
On the consol, press # * C *,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, or P * C *.
Then enter the number 24,, press start. Then press 4, reset that counter. then 24 ,,, 5 reset that. 24,,,, 7 reset that .
The machine should run fine. Those are just numbers that are entered in the memory to make money most of the time.
If there is a problem , let me know the symptom

Maintanance required code TA

Ok so the TA code means that the all maintenance counter has reached its limit
To clear this you need to clear this easy you want
# , * , c , *
To enter service mode
Type in code 24 press start
Then you want sub code 04
Then you can select what you want to clear so the maintenance count all
Execute this yes then press the CA key the machine will restart and away you go
I also do advise that you service representative comes along at some point to check the machine it could need parts because if you stretch the life of parts your machine could become unreliable... But that is up to you

Sharp mx-2300N printer error maintenance required code vk

VK means black developer has reached end of life. You can safly carry on using the copier with this message displayed but over time the copy quality may slowly degrade. You will need to call a Sharp authorized dealer to replace the developer in the developer unit.
