Question about Sharp AR-168D Black and White Copier

3 Answers

Having trouble installing a new toner cartridge in a Sharp 168D.

We installed a new toner cartridge into our sharp 168D copier. The copier is not recognizing that the toner cartridge has been installed. We pulled one seal off but it says to pull a seal off of the shutter????? We can't find it.

    Did you buy the toner cartridge from your local authorized dealer ? Because it has a CRUM chip with a code inside that different depends on the destination country and it must matches with the stored in the machine's EEPROM

AR-270NT is no longer accepted by that copier. You must use AR-310NT. Or, you have a bad chip on the back of your cartridge.

Error code F2-04 and E7-10 on AR-168D

F2-04 is an improper cartridge code and the E7-10 is a shading/lamp brightness issue. I would say the F2-04 is causing both coded, Change the toner cartridge. I have seen those chips on the back of the cartridges cause weird problems. That or the developer unit has failed.
I strongly suspest that once you resolve the F2 issue the E7 will simply go away.

How to refill sharp 168d

First open the right-side door, then depress the upper side tabs of the front door to open it.

The toner bottle has a green, square plastic thumb grip on the top, front part of the bottle. Press down on this part as you pull forward. You should be able to remove the bottle and replace it. Make sure the new toner bottle fully seats before closing the unit up.

Close the front door, then the right-side door and the machine should recognize the new cartridge.

If you're looking to have the bottle re-filled, you will need to contact one of the third-party companies that refills and sells toner bottles. I would advise purchasing a new, authentic bottle of Sharp toner for this unit, as re-filled, non-Sharp toner providers have a history of selling poor quality toner refill kits.

My SHARP AR-168D is not recognizing a new toner cartridge.

Make sure what you've got is Sharp's AR168NT and not AR152NT. Sharp mades changes about a year ago to their toner and the chip on an AR152NT will not work with an AR-168D model.

Crum data read trouble in sharp ar 207

The CRUM chip is what tells the copier that the correct toner is installed. It is specific to the toner cartridge. If it is a new cartridge then it should have a new CRUM chip and there should be no problem. If it is a recharge it's possible that the chip was not changed or the wrong one was used.
