This machine is about 10 years old. Some parts are still available for this machine, but you might have to do some looking around.
As far as how it would cost to keep it running will depend on the condion of the machine and how well it was maintained.
You can also go to and on the left side click "Sharp", "SF2040", "Show all parts" to get an idea of some of the parts that are available from 1 company.

Hope this helps.
Good luck.

Parts are absolutely still available for this machine. It was introduced in February of 2004. Most manuafacturers supply parts for at least 8 to 10 years minumum. If you have a maintenance contract then you need to make them fix your machine. All manufacturers provide letters to their Authorized Dealers when discontinuing parts support for any particular model. Therefor if they tell you they can not get parts then ask them for the letter from Sharp saying there are no parts available. Most of the time this is just a ploy to try and get you to buy a new machine.
If you do not have an agreement then look for another repair company/person as they are not looking out for your best interests.
If you want a site that sells parts then check out
Just put AR168D in the search box at the upper right, they have something like 50+ parts listed and they are not even a Sharp Dealer.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

My copier is a Sharp SF Model 2215. I replaced

It is the drum.
Reasonable cost? That's up to you.
Call a few service depots and ask. Then decide if you want to invest the cash.

SHARP AL1642CS prints but very faint

Found that fuser wire had broken.  Sharp wanted $140 + packing +shipping to look at it.  Found that Staples had newer model on sale for $499 minus $250 rebate.  Stripped toner & drum from old machine and bought new one.

Sharp AR-M208N copier with 124,387 copies made

I buy and sell used copiers in southern California. That machine is pretty well aged and getting to the point where parts are not available. I would consider myself lucky to receive $400 for it.

Sharp FO5700

I have never seen this error code on a sharp FO 5700 are you sure that is the right model # or error code. I even did a search in the FO5700 service manual(no luck). I believe I have seen this code before on a sharp copier.
