Question about Sharp AR-C240P Printer

2 Answers

My ar-c240p sharp printer prints very nice sharp prints both color and black sometimes. Most of the time it prints light gray and washed out colors. This may happen from on print to another within minutes of each other. I have replaced the black toner and drum. Any help?

    Thanks for the message. We replaced the belt and the toner/drum pack with a known working replacement from another machine. It was printing all color pictures cyan, now they are all magenta. After putting old supplies back in and restarting it. It gives the error message SRAM error, missing E.

    I have a Sharp AR C240P printer. It started printing black in a washed out appearance. It would do this for a print batch, then on the very next batch, just minutes later, it would print fine. Next, when sent a color picture, it would print in all cyan and still bleached out. Then it went to all magenta with dark color and dark black print. I replaced the belt and toner/drum cartridge with a known good unit from another machine. It didn't fix the problem. I rebooted the machine and now it gives the error message SRAM error, missing E.

I have reviewed your problem and have the fallowing for you to aces.
First, remove the toner drum and look at the base, where the drum sits.
If you see powder on the bate, please blow the area out with high pressure.
When you install the drum, their is a plastic lever that brings a cover over the transfer unit. This will sometime drop powder on and around the base, which is then transferred to your copies.
You can pickup a can at Radio Shack for about $4.00 US.
Hope this has answered your problem and the fix is cheap.
Thanks, Please rate.

Hello.. Generally when this happens the developer rollers are worn out and need to be replaced. This is a job best left to a trained tech. Thanks for choosing fixya! Regards, Joe

I use my Sharp AR-BC320 as a network printer, how do I set the print mode to default black & white. It is currently set to always print color. I have searched the manual and is says nothing about print...

On the Print Window.
1. Click on the Properties button.
2. Click the Color Tab and Choose the "Print in Grayscale" option and Select "Black ink only"
3. Click the Printing Shortcuts Tab. Click the "Save As" button and assign a shortcut name you can remember.
4. Then click "OK". and print.
5. The next time you print a document just look for that in the printing shortcuts.

Cannot scan in color. can only scan in gray.

That is because it is a Black or White copier. It will not scan in color, it is not designed too

Gray scale is the different shades of gray this relates to black and white I am not familiar with this model but is does not sound like it is color

Open the toner supply dor and see if there are any color toner cartridges also google this model you will know more

Copies and prints in color are black procesed, but in black are ok

Using CMY Color produces a Processed Black.
Using only K will produce a Black.
In the print driver on a PC change your default setting to Black, from the machine you can set it to use only black as well.
That Patch is on the transfer belt. which it will alwyas do, that is what color machines do.

Install the print driver twice and set one driver s Color Mode to color and one to greyscale. This setting can be accessed by right clicking on the print driver and selecting Printing Preferences, click on the Color tab and set the Color Mode appropriately.

Sharp AR BC320 not printing correct colors

sounds a lot like the print heads are clogged. Can you print a test page, and how does that come out?
