    Are your originals clear, but copies gray & less sharp? When I bought the machine, all was great, but copy quality is now degraded.

There are 3 reason if the copy gray & less sharp:
1) the toner you are using is not compatible very well with the cartridge unit if you changed other compatible toner.
2) the cartridge going near the life-cycle, (also cause print blurred)
3) the photo drum going near the life-cycle
you may try to change the quality toner (original factory). or
change the cartridge if it is out of the life-cycle

Our Sharp AR-160 copy machine is 5 yrs old. We have had to have continued maintenance, most recently the "developer" was replaced and our copies still come out faded. How long should we expect...


Hi,
Did they clean the laser unit?

You can play with bias to raise the copy darkness.

For start you can open the front door and right side way door, remove drum unit, and you will be able to see long glass above drum unit. clean it with the dry wipe or wet one but be sure to dry it.

By my experience it is a good low maintenance copier... if the preventive maintenance is carried out correctly, every 60 000 copies more or less.

Hope that helps!

Blurry bottom 2 inches of copy from IR 1600


Take a Normal,reduction and an enlarged copy(at any ratio) of a Newspaper in different size papers. Then check whether the blurred position is at the same position or not.If it is at the same position, check scanner for its free movement, there may be an obstacle which will not allow the scanner to move freely resulting in blurred copy. or else let me know.

Blurred copy


blurred copies usually come from the optics area,
when turned off and on does the zoom lens go to home position and back?
did you clean the optics and then had this problem, could be a misaligned mirror.
