Sharp AR 200

Need some help pls. We turned off our Sharp AR-200 copier due to the recent Easter 3 day shutdown weekend (office was closed) and before that, the copier worked fine. We come back Monday, fired it up to do copies and it just came out with these all black pages. So I pulled out the cartridge shaked it sideways over a sink and about a spoon of toner falls off. After that, I blew the cartridge with an Air Duster can to clean off anymore toner hanging onto the cartridge then placed it back in the copier. Plus, I turned this orange knob (situated at the bottom right pass the toner cartridge and it's not attach to the toner, instead this orange knob is attached to copier; I turned it clockwise as it won't turn counterclockwise. And I do not know what these orange knob is for but I thought just maybe what the heck, it might do some help. But now the situation got worst because now the copier won't print at all but just a blank copy with a bit of off-white'ness on it.
Pls. kindly help. Thanks so much for any feedback or instructions in advance. Johnny

    Thanks Willy23 for helping me out. Can I ask where the drum is located as I don't have a blueprint or diagram where it's at so I could do what you advise me to. Thanks.

The main cause of that problem is some recedue of the toner are already inside of the drum unit and the main charger.and because of that the main charger are not performing well. so the besting you do if you can pull out the drum unit and look for the metal screen grid try to clean it.or if you cant do it call the sharp technician.

Sharp copier

If there is something wrong with the sensors it can be related to the cover as well.

If you turn the power off and back on again. Does the messsage still appear after that?
