    Thanx for the reply,

    The printout is not light, it is ok but there are several black horizontal lines.

    This copier had a tough life so I presume there could be scratches on some cilinders. I want to know what causes this problem so i can fix it, i`m afraid if i change the developer it won`t fix the black lines.

    Does anyone has a manual with problems and solutions (components that sould be changed and when)?

    Thank you very much, any reply would help

It's the drum thats causing the lines to happen. Youre going to have to get that replaced before you can reset the counters.

If you get light copies, then the developer should be replaced.

    I believe the cycle life on the drum is 50,000 copies.

    It should be the green round drum.

Coming with message on display maintenace required call for service

What is the error code that is being displayed? Is it displaying "Time for maintenance"? If there is no error code and the copier still works, it means the internal count has got to a factory set meter to have the drum & developer and possibly other part replaced at that time.

I have just aquired a sharp AR- M165 and when you turn it one the man icon appears with a flower type icon ( I guess this mean toner) Sharp engineers are few and far between in west wales, is there any way...

You need to change the developer and reset the code, you could just reset the code but copy quality may begin to deteriorate, have you any experience with copiers?

Sharp AR-M160 Maintenance light and developer replacement light have come on together. Where do I get developer from?

It's not developer light.
It is drum unit light and maintenance.
You have to replace the Drum, Blade and Developer.
After changing them you have to reset the maintenance, drum,developer counter.
This procedure must be made by a copier tech.

But if you still want only the developer the code is AR-202D

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.
