SOURCE: leaking toner

Make absolutely sure you are using new OEM Sharp supplies for this machine. I sell OEM and generic, and I always have trouble with generics leaking in Sharp copiers. Also if the drum unit has toner backed up in the waste channel, it will leak out.

SOURCE: Dirty Background on Printouts

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.

SOURCE: sharp copier ar-bc320 error code??

the DK message means it is time to replace the black drum unit. the drum unit is called an ARC26DU. open the front cover. remove the toner cartridge/s by lifting the green lever and pulling the toner out. Open the left side door. look at where you just pulled out the toner and there is one screw (facing you) holding each drum in place - loosen the screw and pull the drum unit out towards you....slide in the new drum unit.
to reset drum counter go into SIM mode by pressing the following keys one after the other "P" "*" "C" "*" then 24 and start/copy key then 7 then select the color drum you are replacing and confirm reset. make sure copier restarts afterwards

DO NOT refill these toner cartridges (even if you can find someone to do it) The toner cartridges for these machines have generally had ongoing problems as far as longevity and quality - refilling them will only make it worse.

SOURCE: Changing toner cartridge on copier

Open up the large front door, it will swing downwards. At the top section you'll see four boxes with front handles. Each of the boxes is a slide-out container of toner.

Follow the instructions on the new toner box to prepare it for the copier.

You'll note each toner box has a color designation (on a plastic label just above where you grab). Simply grab the handle on the one you need to replace, pull it out and then slide in a new one.

Also note there are four colors: Yellow, Magenta, Cyan and Black. The LCD screen should indicate which toner bottle(s) to replace.

Can I print on my hp 6122 deskjet with only a black ink cartridge? I have no color ink.

Yes, all HP Deskjet printer models feature a 'single cartridge print mode'. Just remove the cartridge you don't wish to print with; the printer will automatically revert into either greyscale printing (if color cartridge remains installed) or black only printing (if the black cartridge remains installed). However, if the installed ink cartridge is electrically damaged/defective the printer will display an alert message; it will need to be replaced with a new cartridge.

F2-65 shows on my sharp mx4501n copier what will i do

Your machine is starved for cyan toner. Either the toner supply pipe is blocked or the CRUM counting chip on the back of the cyan toner cartridge has zapped out or wound down to zero. Try replacing your toner cartridge. If still no go you'll have to take out the drums, developer tanks and transfer belt, hold a piece of paper under the cyan supply pipe spout and tap the pipe to break up the toner.

What does an error code H4-01 mean on a Sharp MX4501N copier? The machine no longer copies, simply displays: Call for service Code H4-01.

Fuser Heater failure. The fuser is the part of your machine that heats up and "fuses" the toner onto the paper. It is located right near where the paper exits the copier. This error code means that the fusing unit is not heating up as it should. The most common failures in order of ocurance are thermal fuse, thermister and heater lamp. In any case you are going to need a service person to come out and diagnoe which part has failed, replace the part and reset the code for you. Should not be more than say $200 to repair.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I recently replaced the black ink cartridge and do not wish to use the colour cartridge. However, the printer still keeps flashing the critically low level of my colour cartridge and does not print.How can...

Many printers always use a small amount of each color even if you are only printing black, to prevent the color nozzles from drying out and getting clogged (and, it forces you to buy more ink, which is a profit center for printer manufacturers)

For this reason, some printers will not work if ANY of the cartridges are empty.

It should work again if you replace the color cartridge. Make sure to select "black ink only" or the option to print in black and white or grayscale to minimize color ink usage. It may still use a little, but that's OK.
