    specialists in tunisia told me that is fault of developper but i'm not convinced.
    my toner is new and my ink is full.
    thanks again.

Did you mean the account control code ( 3 digits code ) ? If you forget this code, either you disable the account control mode or change the old user accounts. Here's how :

1. Enter the USER MODE PROGRAM by pressing and holding the Light key indicator ( the white half circle ) at the bottom left of the machine.

2. After the all the lights at the panel goes off ( except the quantity copy display, it will show 3 lines ). press 10 with the 10 key and START, change the value from 1 to 0 and press START again to save the value. THIS IS DONE TO DISABLE THE ACCOUNT CONTROL MODE.

3. If you want to show the user account and cange it to a new account, repeat the above step but enter 12 instead of 10 and press START. It will shows you your current user accounts ( up to 20 accounts ). If you still want the old user account, remember that code and press the light exposure key 1 more time withou holding it.

4. If you want to change the old user accounts, after the machine shows you the user acccount press START and input the new 3 digits code and START again.

    You're wlcome Dalix.

    It seems that you are running low on memory ( RAM ) so when you print pictures it will not printed properly. Try increasing your PC's RAM and close all other applications before you hit print or you can upgrade the printer memory with the optional SHARP AR SM5 256 Mb RAM

    If i not mistaken, the standard memory for AR 5316E is only 64 Mb, it is shared by copier and printer by 50-50, so the printer only has 32 Mb. While the copier has the other 32 Mb but during a copy process, if you only copy 1 original to 20 copies you won't have any trouble but try copy from 40 originals to let say 200 copies each, you will sure have trouble with the memory.

    In my country ( Indonesia ) AR SM 5 256 Mb RAM costs about US$ 300.

    A little advice for you, convert the JPEG file and use TIFF format instead, this format gives you same quality in smaller size.

    Good luck and you're welcome Dalix.

Installing AR-Sharp 5316E on Vista OS

According to sharp information the 5316e is not supported by Vista, the 5316n version is ( N for networking). They would require different drivers because they are different in the way they print. However, here is a link for a vista driver for the "E" version. This is for 32bit vista and not 64bit.
You are more than likely going to be connecting to the copier with a USB cable. Install the software first and plug in the USB cable.
Hope this helps.
