Question about Sharp AR-5316 Advanced Digital Imager Copier

DRUM REPLACEMENT AFTER FINALLY REMOVING THE OLD DRUM TO REPLACE IT WITH A NEW ONE, WE NOTICED THAT THERE WAS A LONG STRIP (12" LONG AND 1/2" WIDE) OF WHAT LOOKS LIKE A SCREEN THAT FELL OUT DURING THE REMOVAL. CAN YOU TELL ME WHERE IT GOES -- HOW TO RE-ATTACH IT? WILL IT HURT OUR MACHINE TO RUN IT WITHOUT THIS SCREEN? THANKS FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE US.

That is the charge screen. It is on the metal channel above the drum, Its is held on by a spring clip on the end. Yes it has to be on for the machine to work corectly, what it does is smoothes out the charge voatage so that the print is even.
It really is not hard to replace, just look on the charge assembly there will be a metal tab, and run it across either the charge wire or sawtooth. Just be sure that it is even across the assembly.
If it is installed on an angle the copy quality will not be even across the page.

Ep 1030/1031F gets black strip down side of paper about an inch wide


Odds are you need a new drum cleaning blade. The only problem is trying to find parts for the copier. Good Luck

What does a belt life ends soon mean, on a brother MFC 9440ch color laser printer?


Are you sure of the error message? The Brother printers that I have used have Drum Ends Soon and Change Belt messages.

The Brother MFC-9440CN has a belt that can be replaced. The Belt unit has an life expectancy of ~50000 pages. The belt unit is part BU100CL and costs a bit over $150 at office supply stores. Amazon.com and some other stores have the unit for under $100. http://www.amazon.com/Brother-BU-100CL-HL-4040CN-HL-4070CDW-Series/dp/B000SC245E is one source.

When the unit says Change Belt Unit, follow the directions from the manual's maintenance section to replace the belt unit. See page 178 (page 189 of the PDF) http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc002252/mfc9440_usa_usr_b.pdf . You have to remove the Drum and then the Belt Unit. Then slide in the new Belt Unit and replace the Drum unit. Then close the printer and turn it on. Finally reset the counter from the Machine Info sub menu (press Menu 8 4 and select the Belt Unit and press OK. Then press 1 followed by Stop/Exit).

If you mean the Drum Unit, that is part DR-110CL and costs over $175 at the office supply stores. Order this part when the Drum End Soon message appears and replace it if the print quality deteriorates (or when you have the new drum). The Drum Life is ~17000 pages. The steps start on page 166 (182 of the PDF). You need to remove the old Drum unit. Then remove the toner cartridges from the drum. Prepare the new Drum Unit, including putting the cartridges in the new Drum. Then replace the Drum unit and reset the counter.

I hope this helps.

Sharp AL-1655 CS copier - machine is 4 years old and has new TD cartridge. It was dumping excessive toner which I cleaned up. Also, made grinding noise. When machine opened and TD cartridge removed, I...


The part that you are talking about is not from the fuser unit. It is from the drum unit, it is most likely the primary charge grid. It is part of the drum that charges the drum..... You may just want to replace the drum unit..... If the grid fell off the plastic holder may be broken... Good Luck

Print out has white strips


Hi, white strips can vary depending on how you place your paper ie can be horizontal or vertical on the printed copy. Please check the following possibilities;
  1. Check that there is enough developer on the developer unit and that it is uniformly distributed on the magnet roller. If less, add a little or replace a new on, if there is some lines on the magnet roller, pour out and sieve the particle.
  2. If the steps above do not work, check the drum drive gear on the drive unit and replace if teeth are worn out.
  3. Replace a new drum and also the side seal which comes with the drum cleaner blade as they are the ones that removes the drum coating.
Please be cautious.

The copies are coming out smeared and with lines. I wiped the (drum?) off?


What did you wipe the drum off with???? That is why you have this problem. You may want to try recleaning the opc with a dry soft rag, also you may want to clean the drum blade... If that dose not solve your problem, you may need to replace the opc & blade... Have you tried to stop the copy before it gets to the fuser unit.. If so, are the marks there???

Need to replace the drum cleaning brush how do I get it out????


The drum cleaning blade removal is pretty straight forward.
1. Remove the charge unit above the drum.
2. Remove the cover that sits above the cleaning blade.
3. Release the pressure spring at front of drum unit.
4. Remove 1 screw (front side of blade at top) holding blade in place.

I noticed that you had also had a E3-40 code previously. If toner is dropping on to your copies, the toner support blade will also have to be replaced.
