Double image on the first copy only

This isn't actually "my" problem, but I have a friend in the business who has trouble with several (3) Sharp AR-168S machines. Evidently they double image on the 1st copy only. If he runs say 10 copies, the 1st one comes out with the double/residual imaging, and the 2nd through tenth come out fine. He has tried replacing the drum, and it didn't make a difference. The problem still existed. If anyone has seen this problem and has a solution, I would greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks.

    I didn't really ask, but I assume he's eliminated all the common causes (fuser/corona'etc.) other than the drum as suspects for the issue, as he's been in the business for almost as long as I. I'll check back with him, but I think we're probably looking at a more discreet cause based on his statement that he's been "ripping his hair out over these machines" for a little while now. So I think we're still looking for a different solution at this point. Thanks though.

Well, double images are most commonly caused by the drum - but I see you already replaced that. They could also be caused by the fuser or charger. Has he tried cleaning the charger. Instructions for that are on page 89 of the manual - which you can view here: http://www.sharpusa.com/files/cop_man_AR168S_AR168D.pdf Assuming that doesn't work (which it probably won't, but always try the easy fixes first), he probably needs a new fuser, or possibly a new charger roller. You should be able to tell which by measuring the distance between the first image and the double image, and comparing it to the circumference of each roller. Whichever one matches is the culprit.

Getting double images on copies, how can I fix?


It's one of two of these solutions. The fixing rollers more so the upper fixing roller which is the hot rollers at the exit end of the copier is dirty or need replacing. Or the drum has a cleaning blade on it that needs replacing. If you look at the drum and see if toner is still on the drum if so then your cleaning blade needs replacing. Also if that copier uses a blanking lamp then it might not be turning on so you can get double images.
