Re: Sharp Copier Model #SF2040
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 www.precisionroller.com 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.

But the model is old enough that there may not be any phone help available.
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 precisionroller.com
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.
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.
sounds like a short, possibly in the fuser. fusers use high AC voltage to heat to over 400 degrees Fahrenheit, but I have seen sensors that use 3 volts short machines also. where are you from as I could recommend Sharp dealers in FL, TN, and IN.
