Double image on the first copy only

This isn't actually "my" problem, but I have a friend in the business who has trouble with several (3) Sharp AR-168S machines. Evidently they double image on the 1st copy only. If he runs say 10 copies, the 1st one comes out with the double/residual imaging, and the 2nd through tenth come out fine. He has tried replacing the drum, and it didn't make a difference. The problem still existed. If anyone has seen this problem and has a solution, I would greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks.

    I didn't really ask, but I assume he's eliminated all the common causes (fuser/corona'etc.) other than the drum as suspects for the issue, as he's been in the business for almost as long as I. I'll check back with him, but I think we're probably looking at a more discreet cause based on his statement that he's been "ripping his hair out over these machines" for a little while now. So I think we're still looking for a different solution at this point. Thanks though.

Well, double images are most commonly caused by the drum - but I see you already replaced that. They could also be caused by the fuser or charger. Has he tried cleaning the charger. Instructions for that are on page 89 of the manual - which you can view here: http://www.sharpusa.com/files/cop_man_AR168S_AR168D.pdf Assuming that doesn't work (which it probably won't, but always try the easy fixes first), he probably needs a new fuser, or possibly a new charger roller. You should be able to tell which by measuring the distance between the first image and the double image, and comparing it to the circumference of each roller. Whichever one matches is the culprit.

I have a sharp ar-168s printer/scanner ect combo. We have the printer networked through the manager?s computer. If pushing scan on any of the sc1-6 displays the scan goes directly to the manager?s...

I am not 100% sure, but when you bought the copier how many "Rights" did you buy or recieve when the copier was installed? Most like you only got "Rights" for one user only and you may have to buy another legal or registered copy of the scanning software. Have you tried to have your "IT person" try to go on your network to give you the "Rights" to use the scanner?
