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.

We have a black line down the center of all copies...


If the problem only happens on copies or sent faxes then no it is not your drum. There is something on your scan glass. My guess is you are getting the line on your copies when you run the original through the document feeder. If you get lines through the document feeder but not on copies made off the glass then it is a dirty scan glass. There is a thin glass strip where the document feeder feeds the original. Usually something like white out that did not dry smears off an original and ends up on this thin strip of glass. Scratch it off with your finger nail and use some glass cleaner to resolve the problem. The scan glass is about 1/2 an inch to an inch wide and will be on the same side of the machine that the copier feeds the originals in on

Blank line down left side of outgoing fax or feeder copy


The most common cause of blank (void) lines on a scanned document is from whiteout on the glass where the page is scanned when using the document feeder.
If there is a clear mylar sheet on the bottom of the document feeder, the whiteout may be there instead.

If there was dirt or a dark smudge on the glass (or mylar), it would show up as a black line, but whiteout is white, and shows up as a void (blank) line.

When faxing does paper face uup or down


You load the originals print side uo on the document feeder tray or print side down on the glass.
To send a single page fax you can either load the original on document feeder tray or on the glass; to send a multi-page fax you must use the document feeder tray.

The position of the paper is the same either you copy, fax or scan.
All this is clearly explained in the user's manual, that you should read and you can download from HP support pages for you printer:

Take a little soap and a little water and clean the gray feed tire that is located in the document feeder. Check for any paper obstructions. If the machine has had a lot of prints I would replace the feed tire.

Black lines on copies when run thru fax feeder


There is a thin strip of glass that you will see when you lift the top feeder. There is most likely white-out on it.

When you use the top feeder, it doesn't use the large glass, it only 'rolls' the original document over this small strip of glass.

Its most likely to be the pickup roller and separation pad which will need replacing. as a short term fix try cleaning them with some isopropyl alcohol
