On the AR-407:

To remove the developer/toner cartridge, there is a green lever inside the front door/cover. Pull it down like you are going to refill the toner, pull it out, and there is a release lever on the right side bottom, between the cartridge and the copier. This will release the cartridge and allow you to slide the whole mechanism out.

There are 4 screws that hold the toner box onto the developer. (NOT THE TOP MOST COVER SCREWS) 2 on the left side (with the toner hopper on your right), and 1 screw on the right top, and 1 screw on the right side by the handle you use to pull the cartridge out of the machine. Make sure you also disconnect the electrical connector that attaches to the hopper motor.

Be careful not to spill the toner or developer as you are seperating the two.

The developer unit is the bottom unit.

Dump out old developer (make sure you get all of it by turning the gear on the back side). If you don't have a toner/developer vacuum, then just get as much out as you can. A normal vacuum motor will eat itself in a very short time trying to vacuum up toner or developer, because the particles are too small for a regular filter.

When you get all the developer out, then carefully open the new developer packet, and evenly pour it in. Put it back together the same way you took it apart.

Imaging Unit calibration failure. This code means the machine is seeing a toner concentration in the Imaging Unit that is either to high or too low. This problem can only be resolved by a service technician. Salvaging the existing developer mixture is often not possible. The Imaging Unit will need the the developer replaced and calibrated via the service mode.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Minolta EP2010 CSPro copier: Where does the develper bottle go??? I see the Toner MT 102a bottle but where does the Develper bottle install. Or does the toner bottle already have the develper filings?


When the developer is added during normal replacement, the developer bottle is installed in place of the toner bottle. Then when the F8 mode is initiated from the service mode the developer is added into the developer unit and automatically calibrated. This is only done after the old developer has been cleaned from the DV unit.
The toner bottle contains no developer. The developer is replaced separately and only needs to be changed about every 80,000 pages.
Good Luck and Thnak You for using Fixya.

What is the difference between the toner and developer on this printer? The manuals we have don't give any info on installing developer, but you can purchase both toner and developer for this...


Toner provides the color, Developer consists of magnetic particles that carry the color on the outside of the developer drum, which is magnetic. Some developer is lost on each copy, although most stays in the developer unit. When you run low on developer, your image gets lighter and lighter, until the machine reports an error because it can no longer self calibrate. One change of developer suffices for many changes of toner. There is a procedure involving various actions and codes to flush the developer material out and load new developer in. This is not difficult, but there are a couple of reasons you might not want to do it if you are unsure why or if you should. First, developer for these estudio copiers, is very expensive. Second, unless you know how many copies have been made on the existing developer, you might change the developer, and fail to correct the problem. There are related service items, involving the cleaning blades, and seals, servicing charging grids, corona wire, and general cleaning of the 4 developer units and opc drums. Including dusting with zinc sterate, etc., etc. Its hard to know where to begin or where to stop. If you really want to know all about it, order a manual from any of a variety of on-line sources. Good luck

Sharp ar5320 developer reset code


The developer doesn't have a reset code.  It uses a calibration program instead with the reset integrated into it.
Even though the copy quality is fine for now, it can change in the next few days.  You should order some developer.

Hello MR dricha


If the developer has been changed.  You need to go into service mode to calibrate it before you print.  If you don't run the program and you make copies, copy quality will change and you may have to replace the developer again.
Once it is replaced go into service mode and issue the service code to calibrate the developer.
If you haven't replaced the developer yet, you should.
