Sharp ar-m205 copier

Aside from the fact that the multi sheet feeder on my copier doesn't work with out jamming (brand new) i can't seem to copy anything but a blank sheet of paper. (which it does well, by the way) i have followed the stupid pictures on the toner to the letter, but it refuses to so much as leave a mark on a peice of paper. i am in a Marine helicopter squadron in Iraq, and this is the only copier we have, and we are considering it for target practice. please help save the poor (brand new) copier. is my personal email address

    i even tried to copy a black peice of paper laid on the glass... the fact is, no toner is comming out of the cartridge. i don't have another cartridge to test, so i can't isolate whether the copier is just a peice of ****, or i just got a bad toner with it. i am guessing.... both.

All that i can suggest is that the machine has not been set up properly, is the tape removed from the toner cartridge?. Has the document feeder been set up properly in diagnostics, you have to turn it on with that model i think. Has the main charge or transfer corona become covered in toner during transit to your site.

Try flipping the paper over, you could be copying on the wrong side of scanner, where the image is upside down.

How to see paper count of Sharp AR-M205

Hi, i suppose you mean the copier meter reading. There are two ways one is for the copies made and the other for prints made. Press and hold # for reading prints made and press and hold 0 for copies made. Read the six digits that appears and record on a sheet of paper as they start and thats the reading. To know daily readings, subtract the figure for evening from the one for morning and the difference is your reading.
