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.

Needs a fuser hot roll. Once the get worn, they pick up some of the image and reprint it on the page.
They are available form several sources, Kaytin comes to mind. Precision roller. Google the printer model number . I would google is like this. Sharp AR 5316 hot roll.
That should give you several sources, Honestly I would replace the press roll also. Probably you should be able to find them both for less than 100 dollars, I sure wouldnt pay more. Look around. You can find them for a decent price. You may even want to look on E-bay. they often have them there.
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.
