H3-XX codes involve the fusing unit temperature being too low or too high.

Try resetting the error.

Type in 1 4
Turn power off then on if it doesn't do it automatically.
If error doesn't reset then you have other trouble
I hope you ran the developer setup and reset all of the parts counters for the items you replaced. Not setting the developer reference can cause a host of problems.

SOURCE: sharp ar5320 developer reset code

The developer doesn't have a reset code.  It uses a calibration program instead with the reset integrated into it.
Even though the copy quality is fine for now, it can change in the next few days.  You should order some developer.

You need to either replace the toner cartridge or empty the sump on the front of the cartridge. The waste sump is in the front of the toner cartridge, It has filled up and has nowhere else to go but out of the sump and where ever it lands. Sometimes they fill up before the toner cartridge is empty. It happens

How to remove waste toner from Sharp AR 5316 is my question - The Procedure, since our office has misplaced the user manual and CDs that which came with the Copier. Now the machine is 15 months old. Now...

The waste toner for this is a cartridge and can be access through the front cover but this cart. is sealed and should not over flow. It sounds like this machine may be dropping developer you can check this with a magnet if the powder you think is toner sticks to it it is DV. If this is the case you need a maintenance and also tell the tech to check the developer toner seal. If they get foled under they will pull dv out of the box.

Since developer material is spilling, so the developer material is less, thus blur print will occur. The fastest way to solve this issue is to replace a whole new developer unit with new developer material, but this might be quite costly. Otherwise, u need to ask technician to check your machine. Then only can confirm the defects.

Sharp SF-2014 developer

Hello Gus,
IF the Toner/developer is spilling out towards the rear of the machine then the developer unit is going bad. A common problem with this model was the rear bushings in the developer unit would wear out and start to leak. If you take the developer unit out of the machine, put down some newspaper, and tip the developer unit (OVER THE PAPER) about 15-20 degrees towards the back and see if the Developer/toner leaks out any. If it does then you found the problem.
If it doesn't then you might just have an over toning problem. To check to see if you have an over toning problem, please the developer unit ON THE PAPER, get a philips screw driver, and put it in the rear White gear. You will see a series of gears but there is only 1 that is the located on the END of the Roller with the toner/developer on it. TURN IT CLOCKWISE about 1 turn and see if you see toner spilling out.
If you do, then your machine needs a Developer change.

Hope this helps.
Let me know if you have more questions.
If you need parts for this machine, I have a couple contacts that I can give you and you can see if they have the parts in stock.
Good Luck.

Printing line on the right side of paper

I am unsure of one thing in this post, Is the new toner cartridge still spilling out ink and developer?
Now, from there, you need to get a vacuum with a crevice tool and vacuum the inside of the machine very well. There are ridges and stablizer brackets formed into the frame that the toner and developer fall into and sift out onto the paper.
If your cartridge is still dumping the developer and ink from the same end, I highly suspect the machine is not level from front to back and as the machine runs the toner and developer are moving to that end of the cartridge. Once that happens that cartridge will spill the contents out into the machine.
A thorough cleaning is needed, and even at that, it may take some time for all of the contamination to run itself out. It is difficult to remove all of it.
