Is the new one a compatible or a sharpe original if compat fit a new original as this maybe the cause if an original check and clean all the contacts or you just might simply have a faulty drum unit.

Thanks J

My bizhub 350 still says please wait even the fuser unit & lamp is ok. how do i reflash firmware?

Have you had the developer and drum replaced recently, or does the screen say Replace PC Drum? There are certain house chores the copier does before "Ready to Copy" it is waiting for them to get done, so that equals "Please Wait". One big item is making sure the developer and toner are properly mixed inside the image unit underneath the drum or next to it depending on the series. Might want to have the developer replaced and drum/cleaning blade normally done all together, then run the F8 procedure/Developer Charge, and make sure the counters where cleared. Did you recently replace the drum and the developer if so did you clear the counters for the drum and developer, FIRST? IF not then the copier thinks the new drum and new developer are old. The copier works on the counters that is how it knows it got a new drum and developer. Get new developer and a new drum and have it installed correctly. Counters are clear before the unit is yanked out of the machine, then you remove the image unit/drum unit replace the developer/drum and cleaning blade. (DO NOT USE A VACUUM CLEANER WHEN REPLACING THE DEVELOPER static electricity can destroy the sensor located below the developer unit. Then reinstall and RUN F8/Developer Charge. Make sure the fax line and Ethernet cable is removed can't print anything until the F8 is run. Or you will start all over again with new developer and a new drum.

I ordered anew drum only thinking that i could replace it in the cartridge for my existing unit. do i have to order a complete new cartridge or can i somehow takw out the old drum?

You can buy the complete drum assembly, but it would cost bucks! The drum replacement is designed such that a technician normally replaces it as the machine requires regular maintenance.,

You can put the new drum in, BUT you have to be painfully careful, if you have not done this before. If you already have the drum and want to install it, I will help you. If you haven't, please consider having a service call. These machines get really dirty after 30,000 copies. You are asking for trouble if you don't do it.

Yes, I know it's expensive, so shop 3 or 4 companies, even independents are usually competent. It could be a lot more expensive if you don't.

Thogh if you already have the drum I can help you.

What about the starter/developer last time its been changed? Upper fuser/fixing roller (Hot rollers) don't forget to clear counters once those parts are installed.

Error Code showing E000020-0160. Help soon.

Your error code relates to your yellow drum unit. It probably need replacing. Enter service mode by pressing - the additional functions key (key with star in it) then 2 and 8 together - then the additional functions key again. This will bring you into service mode. Now select 'COPIER' and then 'MISC' this will then list the drum life in percent for each colour drum unit - you'll probably find that it is well over 100%. Maybe even 200 or more. In any case this is just an indication because the drums can even last 300% at times. You'll probably need a new drum unit.

Drum replacement but not printing

Your almost there. Now you need to replace the 'Transfer Roller'. The transfer roller transfers the image from the drum onto the paper. If this roller is worn out all you'll get is blank pages printing out. Ray CompuGuy44
