It appears that there is a memory problem that appears to be corrupted. It should be repaired by a technician.

    Before you place a service call. Unplug the power cord. Wait 30 seconds and turn it back on. Resetting the power can make the corruption go away.

    If you still get the error code after that, then place a service call.

F2-04 error on sharp machine AR-M205

The code you have indicates there is a problem with the communication chip within the toner cartridge. The only solution I can think of is to replace the toner cartridge with a new one. Make sure you turn off the machine first, then swap out the toner cartridge then power back on.
Hope this helps.

Printer displaying an error message: 2U

There is a long list here for the U2 code so if you let me know I will tell you what it means..
Again what is the Last part of the Code?
If it is U2-40 code, it is a Crum Chip, Take the toner out clean the end of the toner cartridge, there is a chip, a small plastic connection piece with bronze/silver wire on it.
Or replace the toner cartridge.
You will also need to clear the code with simulation 16.
Turning the machine off might work but, not usually.

Solution for copier

Your copier does not like your toner cartridge. Make absolutely sure you have the proper cartridge AR-202MT. Or, the countdown chip in your cartridge has reached zero or is malfunctioning. In any case, try a new toner cartridge.
