This code indicates that the Cyan Drum has reached 100k and needs replacing. It could also be the black developer and primary transfer belt are at 100k.

DC = Drum Cyan
DM = Drum Magenta
DY = D
rum Yellow
DK = Drum blacK


Even if it is reset you will still need the drum unit or drum/mc kit replaced very soon. These units do not last much longer than specified. After this the print quality deteriorates rapidly. Eventually the drum edges wear away so much that they can force developer out of the dev tank. You can usually get away with not replacing the K dev. If you reset the K dev at the same time as replacing the K drum unit, the machine adjusts itself can function normally. A dev normally lasts 200-300K. The primary belt unit lasts longer than the 100K spec and often beyond 200K out of them before replacement or refurbishment.

Finally, make sure that the Firmware is up to date.

Try first disconnecting power cord for few minutes and see if this can reset the code. DC is the code for the cyan drum. The cyan drum must be replaced. You can call Sharp at the phone number listed on the owner manual, they will confirm that you have a drum error, and cen tell you price of replacement.

Printing from a mac OSX.5.8 to a Sharp copier AR BC320?


You will need to purchase the Post Script Driver for that model. Sharp Copiers require a product key code to enable post script on their copiers. A sharp dealership will have to sell it to you as well as to get the product key code for the postscript driver.

I am trying to find bulk toner for a sharp ar-bc320 I have been only able to find universal toner for other ar sharp models are they compatable?


The AR-C26TxU toner cartridges are only made for the AR-C260, AR-BC260, and AR-BC320. The cartridges are unique for these models in that they are the only ones in Sharp's entire color cartridge line that contain both toner and developer. I'm afraid you're going to be stuck with OEM in this instance, sorry.

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.

SOLID BLACK LINE FROM LEAD EDGE TO TRAIL EDGE


"dk" means the the life black drum is over. You need to replaced the drum and blade. Or you can replaced the whole drum cartridge. The line that you are getting from one of the blades, more likely from the black drum. Pull out all the drum check if there is toner on the drums.
