U2 can have several indications.
The most likely one is that the chip that is on the back of the toner cartridge is not seated properly or has failed.
Try with the machine off, removing and inserting the toner cartridge several times to clean the contacts, next step is to try a new toner cartridge.
There is also a connector on the back frame of the machine that may be dirty or going bad.

In the code "pound star clear star sim 14" what key is sim?

To enter service mode on the AR-M205 you need to press the keys: # key, interrupt key, C key, interrupt key.
then enter 14 & press start.
I assume you are trying to reset an error code.
If you have an error code U2 then enter 16 & press start.
Hope this helps.

I want sulving this problem call for service. code : u2-40

Here is a list you can find a copy of all the error codes

Seems like a board error. The machines are almost 12 years old now and parts are very hard to come by. You may be able to pick up a used Sharp AR-M205 off ebay or you may want to consider upgrading to a newer machine.

Printer displaying an error message: 2U

There is a long list here for the U2 code so if you let me know I will tell you what it means..
Again what is the Last part of the Code?
If it is U2-40 code, it is a Crum Chip, Take the toner out clean the end of the toner cartridge, there is a chip, a small plastic connection piece with bronze/silver wire on it.
Or replace the toner cartridge.
You will also need to clear the code with simulation 16.
Turning the machine off might work but, not usually.
