I purchase my Sharp in May of 2006. I've always had problems with it and while it was under warranty, I was able to switch out to a different printer. My warranty expired in May of last year. Although this system out lasted the others, I am reading possible solutions could be the fuser or the fuser gear drive.
Can I fix this myself under your directions or do I need to get this done by a technician?
It was working fine, then I decided to print an envelope which I had not done with this printer. then it started making that noise.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

wow -- if your powertrain warranty expires in June then I would be kinda concerned about this problem and maybe take the vehicle down to a different Toyota dealer and have them look at it.
by your description it almost sounds like a valve might need to be adjusted(?),, but it could be something different and more serious.
if you are not happy with the report from the dealer - you can always call Scion direct at (866) -70-Scion,, or (866)-707-2466.
here is also some of the Scion information about a complaint and or warranty problems: http://www.scion.com/assets/pdf/tc_warranty/tC_Owners_Warranty_2006.pdf
If the extended warranty was bought solely through that company and was not officially through Sharp,you may be screwed as far as the extended warranty since they are out of business.If the warranty was officially through Sharp,it should not be a problem as there should be other authorized Sharp repair centers locally where you are.I take it you're in Canada?I would at least contact Sharp to find out about the warranty issue.I am providing the global link for you so when you call,have your warranty information on hand(obviously).If the warranty is not confirmed/approved or whatever by them,ask to speak to a supervisor about it.They will have better ability about possibly honoring it out of good faith or discounted service or anything.Be as persistent as possible if it gets to this point.Also,there may be an easy fix to your problem,if so they will know(doesn't sound like it though).Seeing how you probably have to open the menu button,scroll to tint,color or contrast,it's not likely to be just a stuck button.That's all I have for now.Hope all goes well eh.Good luck!

This sound is could mean that the life of the gear has been used up.
This is a common problem. It is easily fixed for $10 + Shipping. The gear needs to be replaced. Try this link to have someone call you. email@example.com Remove the gear and turn on the unit to see if the noise still exists.
If noise stops, the gear and coupling needs to be replaced
Please be aware that this a big problem on this unit. The insulator material used by sharp to between the IC's on the AV board both on top of the boards and underneath the the AV pcb is failing. This insulator is mounted to the IC and under the metal heat sinc. Remove the back and pull the AV Board out of the unit. Use zylene or alcohol and clean all of the grey insulator from between the pins on the ic and order the replacement insulators from Sharp. Most times this will correct the no sound problem. Sometimes this has also damaged the AV pcb and it will have to be replaced. The parts that should be replaced come in a kit with sharp part # PSPKIT663WHZZ. If the kit is not available the 2 parts needed are PSPAZA663WJKZ AND PRDARA216WJFW.
