Sharp MX B402SC Maintenance Codes

Maintenance codes are displayed on the operation panel. The maintenance codes alert the user of a consumable item nearing it's normal maintenance or replacement interval, or the interval has been reached.

When a "the supplies will be needed soon toner cartridge" message is displayed a letter will also be displayed indicating which color will need to be replaced soon.

BK Black (or K)

It is not necessary to replace the toner at the time a "toner supply is low" message is displayed, but it is advisable to make sure you have another toner cartridge on hand.  If you continue to use the machine without replacing the cartridge the following message is displayed  "change the supplies toner cartridge" and the machine will stop printing.

Keep the used toner cartridge in a plastic bag (do not discard it). Your service technician will collect the used toner cartridge.

To view the approximate amount of toner remaining, continually touch the [COPY] key during printing or when the machine is idle. The percentage of toner remaining will appear in the display while the key is touched. When the percentage falls to "25-0%", obtain a new toner cartridge and keep it ready for replacement.
