Sharp AR-M205 Toner Cartridge (ARM205 Copier) - 15,000 Pages
  OVER 50

Price:  $40.89
Product Description
Sharp AR-M205 Toner Cartridge (ARM205 Copier) - 15,000 Pages

This toner cartridge prints 15000 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-M205 - Making a Regular Copy

Single copies can be made by using the Sharp AR-M205’s document glass or the automatic document feeder. When using the glass, open the cover and place the original so that it is snug against the top left corner of the glass. Originals up to 11 x 17 inches in size can be places comfortably on the glass and still allow the cover to close fully.

Once the cover is closed, press the ORIGINAL SIZE ENTER key to cycle through paper sizes. The Sharp AR-M205 will automatically select the correct paper tray to match the input material if paper of the same size is loaded and the machine is properly configured.

Select the number of copies by using the numerical key pad, then press the start button to begin copying. If making more than 250 copies, be sure to unload the output tray periodically so as to avoid an overflow.

Sharp AR-M205 - Making a Copy with the SPF/RSPF

When using the Sharp AR-M205’s automatic feeder, you must first check to make sure that there is not an original on the copy glass. Adjust the guides on the sides of the SPF so that they match the width of the input material, then insert the original(s) face side UP into the tray. Make the sure paper is in the tray as far as it can go, but do not force pages into the machine. When paper of the same size is available from one of the trays, a PAPER SIZE indicator will be lit.

Set the number of copies to be made by using the number pad, then press the start key. Also remember to make sure that the output tray does not overflow.

Sharp AR-M205 - Changing Toner Cartridges

A small indicator light will become active when the Sharp AR-M205’s cartridge either requires immediate replacement or will need replacing soon. When the light comes on in a solid state, there is still a low amount of toner left and copying can continue for a short amount of time, but once the light begins to blink, the machine will cease to function until a new cartridge is installed.

To access the old cartridge, both hands must be placed on the front cover and its sides pressed in, allowing it to open. With the old cartridge in sight, press its release lever and slowly pull the cartridge straight out of the machine. Be careful to avoid tipping or shaking the cartridge, as any remaining toner could potentially spill out.

Unwrap the new toner cartridge and shake it from side to side several times. This will ensure that the toner inside is loosened and well distributed. Pull the tab on the tape on the side of the cartridge and peel it off of the cartridge, but DO NOT pull out the shutter tab at this time.

Insert the new cartridge into the machine, keeping it horizontal while doing so. Press down the lock lever to lock the cartridge in the machine, then pull out the shutter by its tab. Close the front cover and the toner indicator light should turn off. If the light DOES NOT go off, simply open and close the front cover again. This will trigger an additional toner feed that should last about 2 minutes, after which the machine should be ready to copy.

Sharp AR-M205 Review


With plenty of optional hardware upgrades and a solid base set of features, the Sharp AR-M205 is an all around performer when it comes to desktop copy machines. Its slow overall speed prevents it from being a top of the line unit, but a versatile arrangement of print, copy, and other optional features make it a worthwhile addition to the small office.


32 MBs of memory are included in the Sharp AR-M205 base unit, but its 304 MB maximum memory capacity shows how upgradable this unit was designed to be. Paper storage can also be expanded from its already solid 600 sheets of space to 1,100 sheets.

Up to two additional 250 sheet paper trays can be added to the two that are already included with the package. A 100 sheet manual bypass tray is also present in the machine and is the perfect way to load and print to special media types, such as transparencies and card stock, without unloading the standard Letter or Legal sized paper supply.

Print resolution tops out at only 600 x 600 dots per inch, and the Sharp AR-M205 is only capable of printing in black and white, but while photo quality color imagery is obviously not an option when it comes to this device, respectable quality text documents can be processed effectively with the unit, regardless of it is via printing, copying, or otherwise.

Scanning is made possible by a flat head full color scanning system that utilizes either a platen document glass or document feeder to gather information from input material. The included cold cathode lamp is built to last the lifetime of the unit and its basic optical scan resolution tops out at a semi respectable 600 x 1200 dot per inch quality. Up to 9600 dots per inch are attainable when using interpolated scanning. “Scan to” features, such as scan to e mail, can be activated by 6 dedicated, individual dedicated destination buttons.

While an automatic document feeder is included in the initial setup of the Sharp AR-M205, one of the multiple hardware additional options is a reversing automatic feeder. With a reversing feeder, the unit can scan or copy both sides of pieces of input material without them having to be manually flipped. The reversing unit also scans both sides at once, allowing for single pass duplex scanning. Another optional addition is a 100 page electronic paper sorter that makes managing multiple jobs at once easy. 


The Sharp AR-M205’s 20 page per minute print and copy speed is slow by today’s standards, and yet refurbished M205s are still on the market for what seems like top dollar. If raw performance speed is a priority, there is no question that you should look at the current lineup of newer models that deliver a better speed to price ratio, both from Samsung and other brands.

Other copy speeds include 12 copies per minute when dealing with legal sized paper, a considerable drop in performance, and 10 copies per minute for 11 x 17 inch Ledger sized paper, which is actually more or less acceptable.
