Sharp AR-C240P Printer Prints Everything with red cast

My Sharp AR-C240P printer got 4 new drums and 4 new toner cartridges within the last month. Since the changes, it now prints everthing color in heavy burgundy and reads that the yellow toner cartridge is low. My Sharp dealer has worked on it and found nothing wrong, just manually adjusted the color saturation down and replaced the yellow toner and sensor. Nothing has changed. Can you offer any help?

My Sharp Ar-M155 is displaying d message replace the toner cartridge. I ve tested d cartridge with another machine and it is working perfectly

When the toner cartridge is exhausted or empty then theprinter will not be able to print further documents or the prints will be veryfaint. You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer. This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter. A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.

All new toner but prints everything blue

I kinda don't doubt it at all. It could be a bad lot of toner, or another problem with a mechanism within it...regardless, you're cartridge is defective -return it.

Sharp copier ar-bc320 error code??

the DK message means it is time to replace the black drum unit. the drum unit is called an ARC26DU. open the front cover. remove the toner cartridge/s by lifting the green lever and pulling the toner out. Open the left side door. look at where you just pulled out the toner and there is one screw (facing you) holding each drum in place - loosen the screw and pull the drum unit out towards you....slide in the new drum unit.
to reset drum counter go into SIM mode by pressing the following keys one after the other "P" "*" "C" "*" then 24 and start/copy key then 7 then select the color drum you are replacing and confirm reset. make sure copier restarts afterwards

DO NOT refill these toner cartridges (even if you can find someone to do it) The toner cartridges for these machines have generally had ongoing problems as far as longevity and quality - refilling them will only make it worse.
