Question about Sharp AR-M162 All-In-One Laser Printer

"maintenance needed" after so many copies

I own a Sharp AR-M162 All-In-One Laser Printer ... Is there a way to by-pass the 50,000 copy maintenance? It locks up the machine and won't let you print anymore ... it is an expensive service to have done every 50,000 copies ($329.00) ...

To reset/unlock the machine, follow these steps :

1. Press : # *C * 20 START 1 START/OK

It's not only meant that the machine needs maintenance but it also needs a replacement of the consumable parts ( drum, cleaning blade and developer ) but the factory setting usually set this function to disable stop function when machine reaches 50K copies.

If this solved your problem, don't forget to change the consumable parts to keep your copy/print quality to it's best.

Good luck

    lets see 329 divided by 50,000 thats .00658 cents per copy, a little over 1/2 cent you are being cheap

    a little more that 1/2 cent a copy , you are being cheap.

    do you change your oil in your car when it stops running?

    It called preventative maintenace. Go to chijna and buy another machine!

I hate this machine. Right now I can't print. It tells me to change the tray when I try to print.
