Hi again,

Sorry but not the wire, I was referring to where the wire is attached, both ends. This would either be a clip-on or sandwiched between 2 small plates held together by a screw. It is not uncommon for this clips or plates to be tarnished or have burns. They have to be cleaned, if not current will not flow freely to the corona wire. The purpose of the wire is to draw the toner from the drum onto the paper, it uses static electricity to coat both the photoreceptive drum and the paper with a layer of positively charged ions. If the corona wire is not getting full charge or no charge at all, this is the primary reason the warming up is taking too long.

Additionally, try to enter service mode; try #, *, CA, #.
To reset the developer counter press 24, Start, 5, Start.
To exit press reset 3 to 4 times or turn main power off/on.

Would appreciate further updates.

SOURCE: 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.

It could also be the sponge roller in the toner hopper. The old ones started to deteriorate after a while so sharp modified them.

I have a problem with sharp AR 6020 photocopier machine that is displaying triangle and minus symbols how can i solve it


The Triangle may be the toner low light. On the older models it would look like a Triangle of stacked up cannon balls. I am not specifically familiar with your exact model.

Have you tried this site for drivers? If the copier function doesn't work, then neither will the print function.

Does the machine display an error code? It is difficult to give a guestimate on repairs without some idea of nature of failure.

H4 indicates a heating problem in the fuser. The roller never reached a specific temp. Make sure the fuser is free of any left over paper pieces (maybe from a paper jam). Check to make sure its clean.

To reset maintenance codes requires going into service mode. This should only be done by an authorized trained technician as changing or adjusting something in this mode could create all sorts of problems you dont want to deal with.

check in the exit part of the machine, front edge there is a holding pin that may not be removed. it should just unscrew to release the scaner. (it should be blue or green).
