Laser head and paper rolers need cleaning geting speckles. Have drum out but how do i get it them and what is best to clean them with

Spots on the laser glass would show up as white vertical stripes in your print.

The drum unit has a soft plastic blade inside it to constantly clean the drum as it turns. Sometimes a clump of toner gets caught under the blade, but that usually shows up as a narrow band of spotty or gray stuff down the page. The clump may carve a groove in the drum, too. The cure is to replace the drum unit, unless it's new, in which case the cure is to make the store replace the drum unit.

In the back of the printer is the fuser, which runs the paper between hot rollers to bake the powder into the paper. The rollers are coated with Teflon or similar stuff, to prevent picking up toner and laying it back down further down the page. With age & use, the coating fails, and spots appear. Look for a pattern that repeats every 3 inches or so as the roller comes around.

Brothers are also prone to spot due to a bad toner cartridge. Take the toner cartridge out of the drum cartridge, hold it over a sheet of paper or two, and try to shake toner out of it. A little toner spill is normal, but if you get a pile under one end, a seal has gone bad in the cartridge. You need a new toner ctg.

Every manufacturer wants you to spend your money on their own supplies, of course, but in the case of Brother laser printers & faxes, refilled toner cartridges can sometimes break your machine. At the end of the cartridge is a wheel that stirs the toner inside; it's engaged by a thing in the machine that comes out as you close the toner door. Brother uses toner with smooth, round particles in their cartridges. Some refillers use toner that's just as fine, but ground to rough shapes. It resists stirring enough to sometimes break the gear inside the machine, making for an expensive repair. That's not your problem here, but you should consider that if you're headed to the store for new toner.

A thick black line of toner accumulates on the right edge of the paper

This is most likely caused by the drum unit. This unit is located just to the right of your toner cartridge. Just remove the toner cartridge first. Now remove the drum unit. Turn it over and look at the blue/green colored cylinder which is the drum. It should be clean. If you see a band of toner on one edge of the drum then this is where your toner on the copy is coming from. You will need the drum unit rebuilt or replaced. While it is out also check the front side of your toner cartridge. Just visually inspect the toner "brush" that runs all along the front side and make sure there are no piles of toner on it. Do not touch the brush or turn the roller.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Changing a drum cartridge

Open the right side door, open the front door, remove the toner cartridge and look inside. There should be a blue screw above the hole where the cartridge goes, loosen it and then remove the developer unit. At this point you can grab the black cover just to the right where the toner cartridge fits and pull out the drum unit.

Sharp copier ar-bc320 error code??

the DK message means it is time to replace the black drum unit. the drum unit is called an ARC26DU. open the front cover. remove the toner cartridge/s by lifting the green lever and pulling the toner out. Open the left side door. look at where you just pulled out the toner and there is one screw (facing you) holding each drum in place - loosen the screw and pull the drum unit out towards you....slide in the new drum unit.
to reset drum counter go into SIM mode by pressing the following keys one after the other "P" "*" "C" "*" then 24 and start/copy key then 7 then select the color drum you are replacing and confirm reset. make sure copier restarts afterwards

DO NOT refill these toner cartridges (even if you can find someone to do it) The toner cartridges for these machines have generally had ongoing problems as far as longevity and quality - refilling them will only make it worse.

Black Lines

Do the black lines only show up when useing the adf???? Or do they show up on both the adf and the copyboard glass??? If it is only when using the adf...... The fix is easy.... you have to clean the smaller piece of glass that is to the left of the copyboard glass with windex or rubbing alchola. If it is with both you may need a new drum and blade or a new ufr... Good Luck

Leaking toner

Make absolutely sure you are using new OEM Sharp supplies for this machine. I sell OEM and generic, and I always have trouble with generics leaking in Sharp copiers. Also if the drum unit has toner backed up in the waste channel, it will leak out.
