Sharp AR-M160 Maintenance light and developer replacement light have come on together. Where do I get developer from?

It's not developer light.
It is drum unit light and maintenance.
You have to replace the Drum, Blade and Developer.
After changing them you have to reset the maintenance, drum,developer counter.
This procedure must be made by a copier tech.

But if you still want only the developer the code is AR-202D

How do I change the developer on a Sharp AR-156?

The developer sits in a small, black casing that houses the toner bottle. When you pull out the toner, look for a small, blue or green screw that holds the developer box in.

Once you pull the developer out, you'll notice three screws on the outer casing (two on top as you look down on the unit, plus one looking down into the opening where the toner bottle sits). Removed these screws and set them aside. You should now be able to pull the cover off the unit and expose the developer assembly.

Dump out the old toner in a plastic bag. Be careful, as it can spill out quite easily and it's a pain to clean up out of carpets. You'll want to invert the developer unit and use the plastic gear on the backside of the unit to spin the magnetic rod until all of the developer has been removed (be careful not to scratch the surface of this rod, as it's what holds the developer in place during copy processes).

Place the new developer into the open auger area of the unit. Put the cover back on and install the three screws you removed earlier. Place the developer assembly back into the body of the copier and screw the blue or green retaining screw back into place. Now you can re-install the toner bottle and start the copier back up.

How do I change the developer for a Sharp AR-156?

It's part of a kit. You'll need to consult their support site or a tech to get the part number and pricing. It's all disposable these days...

Developer sign

The developer doesn't need to be reset on AR series machines. Toner and developer are in one cartridge. There is a drum reset. That is service code 24-07.

Did you replace the drum as well?

One or several of the consumables (drum, developer, etc) in your copier have gone beyond Sharp's recommended life rating. To print a report, go to copy mode and type P * C * ; then call 22-6. If you have no copy problems, you can clear your drum and maint. counter, shut off your copier and turn it back on, and that should clear your "maint required" message. To clear counters, type the custom settings button to go back to the top level of your service mode and call 24. DO NOT clear your developer counter.
