The toner is not getting treated or hot by the drum, if its under warranty call Tech Support if not then you will likely have to replace the drum.

It says Rendering in the spool section of Job Status

I know this is from months ago but I'll post this reply so people in the future can see it:

You probably need to do an image memory clear on the machine to clear out the corrupted print job, delete it from the queue on your computer, then reboot the machine.

To do an image memory clear on a Sharp MX-4111N:
1. double tap the home button
2. touch the firmware version in the bottom right corner(it doesn't look like a button but it is)
3. a number pad will pop up, hit P * C *
4. you should now be in the simulation menu, hit 66, Mono, 10, mono, execute, yes.

Give the machine a minute to process, then it should reboot automatically. If at this point you cannot print, you need to clear the print queue on each computer and do another image memory clear.

Our Data light keeps flashing and the printer won't print. How do we get the data light to stop flashing so we can use our copier again with our computers?

Sounds like a bad print job stuck in a print spooler.
Turn off copier. Go around to all computers that print to it and open the print queue. delete all print jobs. reboot each PC. Power up copier and see if it clears

CE40:Image quality control test pattern abnormality: The test pattern.

Switch off at the right hand side of the machine, wait 10 seconds, then turn it on back again. I should clear.

I think it is caused by condensation, it can also be transfer belt failure, or paper rubbing against the transfer belt

Error code f120

Your HDD is having issues. First try to rebuild the databases by holding 0 and 8 while turning on the copier, when the machine comes ready key in 684 then reboot the machine. If this doesn't work you can try formatting the HDD (make sure you backup templates and address book if you use them.) To format HDD hold 0 and 8 while turning on the copier, when the machine comes ready key in 690 and hit start. It will then display "2 2", hit start again. Wait for it to say please reboot the machine, turn it off and back on. Hopefully this will work but if not, your HDD will need replacing.

MFC 210c Unable to Print Use Troubleshouting and routine maintenance chapter in Users Manual

My color has not worked well in the past few months. Now I get the message Unable to Print, Use Troubleshooting and rountine maintenance chapter in user's manual. I've tried everything it told me. I've removed all ink cartridges and left them upright (they are ALL brand new) and cleaned all the ink ports. I've cleaned the machine several times. It's told me there's no ink cartrige, I've replaced them, turned the machine off and on, unlplugged, etc. Then go to print and I get the same message again and it won't print. The machine is almost 2 years old and has worked fine until about 6 months ago when the magenta stopped working all together. Now this. Any help? Thanks.
