Toner light flashing, won't copy

First i replaced the toner cartridge. i also changed the toner sensor in the developer unit. another technician, familiar with sharps said that it could possibly be the main motor which drives that section. i put it into maintenance mode, did the main motor test and it would not run. all other motors did. i ordered a new motor and replaced it: same problem. could it be the board that controls the motor(the main pcb, i believe).what do you think?

Definately check and see if you are getting the motor current from the motor driver board and main pcb, before buying it. That should do the trick

F2 40 error in Sharp AR=5520 copier

F2 code means a problem with toner cartridge error. Sometimes F2 is caused by loss or broken harness in the scanning section, in this case, it sometimes displays an E7 code. When f2 flashes on display just press the Start key you will receive a subcode. If the subcode is F2-02 this is a toner supply problem. If the F2-04 toner chip is damaged, replace the chip. If the F2-40 developer is damaged, change the developer
  • Clean toner cartridge CRUM chip contacts and check if cartridge destination is proper for your area.
  • This code you may have to clean out the developing unit and start with a fresh developer. Make sure the developer unit is not leaking from one of the bearings. You may need a tech for this one.
  • Replace the toner cartridge.
  • Change the developer.

If you find your parts, then replace the parts and error still remains, after automatically reset the error code. If the error is still showing even after the above solutions, then you have no choice other than calling Sharp service technician.

Hi, I have Ricoh Aficio MP c2800, Machine say toner undetectable all four when i check system status and yellow, cyan is not show up on copies at all

If your Ricoh Aficio MP C2800 is showing "toner undetectable" messages for all four toner cartridges and the yellow and cyan colors are not showing up in copies, there may be several potential causes for this issue. Here are some troubleshooting steps to help you resolve the problem:
  1. Check Toner Cartridges: Ensure that all four toner cartridges are correctly installed and securely seated in their respective slots. Make sure there are no protective seals or tapes left on the cartridges.
  2. Shake Toner Cartridges: Sometimes, toner inside the cartridges can settle or clump, leading to detection issues. Gently shake each toner cartridge side to side to redistribute the toner evenly.
  3. Replace Toner Cartridges: If the toner cartridges are old, empty, or expired, replace them with new, genuine Ricoh toner cartridges.
  4. Clean Contacts: Dust or debris on the toner cartridge contacts can interfere with communication. Use a soft, lint-free cloth to clean the electrical contacts on both the toner cartridges and inside the printer.
  5. Check Developer Unit: The developer unit in the printer plays a crucial role in toner development and transfer. Ensure that the developer unit is clean and free from any obstructions.
  6. Perform a Firmware Update: Check if there are any firmware updates available for your Ricoh MP C2800 printer. Updating the firmware might address known issues and improve printer performance.
  7. Reset the Printer: Power off the printer, unplug it from the power source, wait for a few minutes, and then plug it back in. Power the printer on to see if the issue resolves.
  8. Check Toner Detection Sensors: The printer uses sensors to detect the presence of toner cartridges. Verify that these sensors are functioning correctly and not blocked by any debris.
  9. Perform a Factory Reset: As a last resort, you can try performing a factory reset on the printer. However, be aware that this will reset all settings to their defaults, and any custom configurations will be lost

Sharp Copier AR-M355N developer change is after 100,000 copies. We were at 95,000 copies and copies were becoming light and the developer done to 1/4. We were told somebody dump the developer because it...

The developer stays in the machine in the developer unit. It is SUPPOSE to stay in the unit and the level doesn't go up or down. It just looses some of its magnetic property therefore needs to be changed. I have NO idea about dumping developer, if so...SOMEONE doesn't know what they are doing.

COPIERS - AR-5316

The developer unit is inside the cartridge where the toner sits in. usually if you remove the toner hopper out of the copier and remove the top cover off you will see one compartment with toner and one with developer in it. The carrier is the the type of developer to use. All old developer needs to be removed from the machine as well as the mag roller in order to replace it.

Once it is removed the developer is placed evenly into the comparment. The hopper is reinstalled. Then a service mode is performed to calibrate the developed to make sure that the mixture is equal with the toner.

It should be done by a technician because if it isn't done properly, it will result in light copies being produced. The developer may get contaminated and have to be replace if it isn't done in the proper order.

Blank Copies

The Unit where you've put the toner cartridge could be to far from the drum. Make sure your developer unit (unit where you've put the cartridge in) is locked in place.

Adding developer to sharp sf-2025

Hi, it means the developer requires changing. it has a life of 30k (i think). I would suggest that if your quality is not effected, then keep using the machine, or spend the money on an engineer to come out and replace it.

Cyan Toner always prints faded.

It is the developer. All colours should be changed at the same time. This can be accessed via the right hand side of the machine, when you remove the cover. (where the output tray is)
