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.

SOURCE: Reset drum counter on Sharp AL-1644

This works on MOST sharp AL series copiers.
Press these keys in sequence:
Clear → Density select → Clear→ Density select
display should go blank. Then enter:
24 as if you were making 24 copies then press print
then enter 7 as if you were making 7 copies then press print
if successful you should see flashing 000
turn machine off then on again and the drum light should be gone.
Good Luck

Sharp MX-M232D Copier call for service F2-40


Problem with your toner supply .... you're not getting enough toner mixed into your developer tank. Sometimes the cartridge will empty out without the machine giving warning, or the CRUM counter chip on the back of the cartridge wil zap out or wind down to zero. Try replacing your toner cartridge, if that doesn't clear the code your developer mix is out of balance and may need to be changed and reset.

Our sharp MX-3100n printer is "offline" and shows code "VC" - how do I get it back online?


Apparently your machine is set to stop when the supply counters trigger a maintenance code. You can type # * C * and go into Sim 26-38 and bypass this.

VC means your cyan developer has reached its' rated life of 60,000 copies and needs to be changed. Your yellow and magenta developer which are usually changed at the same time as the cyan have also reached their end of life (VM, VY) and so all 3 will need to be changed (not black, your VK code will come up at 100,000).

You will need the color developer kit and the seals and filter. Sim 24 resets the counters and sim 25 resets the toner-developer mix ratio (this is MANDATORY or your new developer will be ruined, you must run the copier with a door open and only close it when you are ready to set the mix).

There's also various color calibrations after this you can get from a service manual. DO NOT run old developer through your machine, it will eventually lose its' magnetic properties and be carried through the copier sandblasting everything in its' path.

Sharp mx-2300N printer error maintenance required code vk


VK means black developer has reached end of life. You can safly carry on using the copier with this message displayed but over time the copy quality may slowly degrade. You will need to call a Sharp authorized dealer to replace the developer in the developer unit.

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

Sharp-MX2700N Maintenance Code VK


VK = 100,000 pages printed on the developer counter or 715,000 revolutions of the developer unit (as mixing can occur even when pages are not being printed). Developer can break down over time and or the seals can be damaged - so service by a technician is indicated. If maintenance was recently performed and the developer replaced then the counter needs to be reset.
