"machine gun clicking" sound - fuser drive/motor gear area

Sharp AR-M205 is refusing to copy - machine gun clicking noise
at lower right corner near where fuser drive gear and motor gear
train are. Fuser was replaced with new fuser and noise still
persists. Service tech removed and replaced gear train with a
new one. Now we have a click-click noise. Any ideas on
a solution since both fuser and gear train and now new.

Sometimes the clicking noise can come for the developer cartridge or the drum. you can carefully take them out and see if they turn freely.

Where is the fuser located on MXC 311

The fuser unit is located in the right hand side of the machine. If you open the right door, inside the upperpart of the machine you will see 2 grey handles, 1 towards the front of the machine, the other towards the rear. If you pull these handles out you can then remove the fuser unit. There are 3 known faults for loud fuser noises,1 is the fuser drive gear inside the machine strips the teeth on it, second, the main drive gear in the rear of the machine strips the teeth(usually caused by the 1st problem getting broken teeth stuck in the remaining teeth causing the drive motor to strip the main drive gear) & thirdly, the pressure release mechanism breaks on the fuser unit itself. If it is any or these then unfortunately you will need the assistance of a dealer to replace the damaged parts.
Hope this helps.

What do i do if i make photo copy and the gears sounds

The fuser gears brake alot on these because of the heat. Open the flip down cover on the fuser when it is cooled off and try rotating the roller by hand look into the right side to see that the gear is rotating with the roler if not your sharp dealers should be able to get you the part for around $22 and they could put it in for an hour of labor.

Sharp AR- m205 error code h2


Should probably read H2-00, which is your thermistor in the fuser. Open door on right, three screws hold the fuser in (hot bit), release fuser slightly, being careful as it is still connected, the thermistor is sat in the top, you should be able to reset it by pressing the little button and you should here it click. re-fit fuser and secure.

To reset the code, press these buttons:
Hash, interrupt, clear, interrupt., enter 14, then the print button.

Power went out now my Sharp AR-M205 is coming up with code H2 how can i fixit

This code relates to temperature problem in the heating area or fuser unit . During copier warm up, a certain temperature must be sensed for it to work and it is not sensing that thus the code H2. Sort it out by keying the following codes in this sequence; Press #-*-C-* and display will go blank, enter key 14 on the panel display and press copy key. It will restart itself in a normal way. Good luck and happy new year.

Hi, My machine is sayin error H4, how can i Fix it. its a sharp ar-m205.

H4 code means your fuser did not come up to the preset temp in the predetermined time-frame. Try resetting the copier by pushing the # key, the * key, the C Key, then the * key, in rapid succession which will bring you into simulation mode. once there type 14 with your number pad, and press the start key. It may ask you to verify, select yes. once it is finished, push the CA (clear all) key and the machine will reboot.

If this doesn't correct the issue, call a service technician in your area to come and look at your fuser. a bulb may be burnt out, or the thermistor may be broken,

Hope this helps!
