Sharp AR-168D / AR-168S Toner Cartridge (AR151 Copier) - 6,500 Pages

Price:  $38.89
Product Description
Sharp AR-168D / AR-168S Toner Cartridge (AR151 Copier) - 6,500 Pages

This toner cartridge prints 6500 pages with average 5% coverage (Nearly all Printer manufacturers base their ink/toner cartridge yields on 5% page coverage).

This product comes with a 6 month Warranty against any defects (including free replacement). We stand behind our products 100%, as these are not manufactured by Sharp.

Why toner? Why not call it ink? Regular ink dries quickly, which is why cartridges for inkjet printers do not last long. Laser Printers use toner, which is ink in the form of powder. A sealed toner cartridge can be stored for 2+ years prior to usage.

Product Manuals
Sharp AR-168D / AR-168S - Replacement of a Toner Cartridge

There are two distinct messages that the Sharp AR-168D / AR-168S will display when it detects that toner is either low or has run out. At around 25% capacity, the TONER CARTRIDGE IS LOW message will appear and copying can continue for a while longer. When REPLACE THE TONER CARTRIDGE appears on screen, the copy machine can no longer operate without toner replacement because it has completely run out.

To access the toner compartment, first the bypass tray must be opened, followed by the side cover. The side cover can only be opened by pressing the release button located on the left side of the door. Lastly, the front cover must be opened by pressing in on both sides of it at the same time.

The now visible toner cartridge can be released from its locked position by pressing on its lock lever with your thumb. Once unlocked, it can be SLOWLY pulled out of the machine while supporting it with both hands. Keep the cartridge level after removal or remaining toner could possibly still spill from the unit. If toner gets on clothes, immediately wash them with plain COLD water, as hot water will set the toner.

Unwrap the new toner cartridge from its bag and shake it around vigorously while keeping it horizontally oriented. After shaking, remove the toner seal from the cartridge by peeling its pull tab off. DO NOT remove the shutter tab until the cartridge is safely fitted into the machine.

Once fitted into the machine, the shutter can be pulled away and discarded. The covers must be closed with the front one shutting FIRST and the side cover second or damage may occur. If the ready indicator does not light up at first, open and close the side cover A SECOND TIME to trigger a second toner feed which will complete in about 2 minutes, allowing the copy machine to operate.

Sharp AR-168D / AR-168S - Creating Copy Margins

The margin shift function can be used to create a half inch shift in text or input material when making a copy to produce a better balanced result. Unfortunately the margin shift function can not be used in combination with the 2 in 1 feature. The width of the margin itself can be adjusted in the MARGIN WIDTH option in the user programs.

Images can be shifted by their long edge or short edge. To do this, place the originals in the copy machine and press the E-SORT/SP.FUN hard key. Cycle through options until MARGIN SHIFT appears on screen, then press ENTER.

Press the dedicated LEFT button to position the check mark over the ON position under the MARGIN SHIFT text. Then press ENTER. Use the arrow keys again to choose either LONG EDGE or SHORT EDGE and then press enter. Choose the number of copies to be made with the numerical pad and then press the START button.

To cancel the margin shift copy in progress, press the CLEAR button and to cancel the margin shift function, press the CLEAR ALL button. When using margin shift, it is possible to shift images too far and thus cut parts of them out of the copy. If this is the case, adjust the margin levels in the user programs.

Sharp AR-168D / AR-168S Review


The Sharp AR-168D / AR-168S models utilize PCL6 emulation and a versatile arrangement of hardware to ensure that copies, prints, and optional fax jobs are completed quickly and efficiently. This extensive document processing setup is perfect for those who require stand alone copy capabilities right on their own desktop.


Optional hardware additions to the already fairly extensive Sharp AR-168D / AR-168S include a Super G3 fax modem that can execute 33.6 Kbps transmission speeds that result in fax speeds of about 3 seconds per page or faster. Those who wish to save a little coin on their purchase can go with a fax free model.

Other hardware options include a built in duplexor that is included in the Sharp AR-168D package but not the Sharp AR-168S. With built in duplexing, users can print automatically to both sides of a piece of paper without user intervention. This results in reduction of paper costs by as much as half, plus more accurate reproductions of two sided material.

The duplxed ready Sharp AR-168D also includes an incredibly handy feature that is called reversing. With a built in reversing automatic document feeder, incoming scans can be processed on both sides of the page, making this model capable of producing two sided copies from two sided material with no additional user interactions. The Sharp AR-168S only comes with a standard automatic document feeder, though both ADFs have a 30 page capacity. (Output tray capacity is 200 sheets.)

PC scanning is operational with any of the Sharp AR-168D / AR-168S hardware options and printing can also be done right out of the box at a maximum resolution of 600 dots per inch. While printing, as well as copying, is restricted to black and white, scans can be done in color.

Paper storage consists of a standard 250 sheet tray that is expandable with one and only one additional 250 sheet tray. A 50 sheet manual bypass tray is also included in box and allows the device to not only make use of special media types such as custom stationary and card stock, but to do so without unloading the device’s standard paper supply of Letter or Legal sized paper.

32 MBs of shared memory keeps copy and print processes moving along at respectable speeds and provides room for page storage if the fax hardware is included in the device. Other features that become active with a modem installed include speed dial and phone number storage. The fax package also includes an additional 2 MBs of memory so the initial 32 is not infracted upon.


While refurbished Sharp AR-168D / AR-168S units can be found for around a thousand dollars or less, this is still much too high a price for a machine that can only produce 16 pages per minute at top speed. When shelling out four figures for a multifunctional unit, it is much wiser to go with a brand new unit due to recent advances in laser copy technology that has brought down prices significantly, especially if dealing with color printing/copying.
