Question about Sharp AR-C240P Printer

1 Answer

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. Help!

A drop-on-demand ink jet printing system includes a print head having at least one mixing chamber with a nozzle opening. A plurality of sources of color liquid ink and a source of bleach communicate with the mixing chamber. A flow controller adapted to selectably meter ink from the sources to the mixing chamber, whereby ink droplets of selectable color are prepared in the least one mixing chamber for delivery from the nozzle. The flow controller is further adapted to meter bleach into the mixing chamber after a droplet is delivered from the nozzle opening to thereby neutralize color ink remaining in the mixing chamber sufficiently such that a next desired color can be attained by adding ink of appropriate color to the mixing chamber. The bleach is universal as to the liquid ink colors, wherein all colors are neutralized thereby. There may be a bleach source associated with each liquid ink color. The bleach in each bleach source is color specific to its associated liquid ink color, wherein only selected colors are neutralized thereby.

For the error message SRAM error:-
however most likely the Print Engine Control Board has failed.
Message SRAM Error Mising E. It is Engine Board defect. Just replace the Engine Board.

Have a weird problem on a Sharp AR m455n the screen stuck on the sharp logo any ideas?

Sometimes this would happen when a bad print job got sent to the machine. I'd make sure to delete all of the print jobs in everyone's print queue on their computer then reboot the machine to see if it comes back up.

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.

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...

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
