    Lightbulb Sharp Odd pages being printed

    A friend of mine showed me this image and I have never seen this before. They said that there are no errors, but only prints this output.
    It is a sharp BP-70C31 printer. I have checked out this printer today and it does not display an error code at all. It only prints out this pattern no matter how I try to print. I have gone through the user manual and it does not mention anything like this in the troubleshooting section. I have not found a service manual for this yet. Sorry I am only a beginner. I have looked over most of the connections in and around the printer. Everything looks good. I have not found the drum ground yet though. Has anyone seen this image printed before?

    I would completely remove the print driver and reinstall the current version. If it still occurs, I'd investigate different applications, different emulations, difference driver settings ... =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    I have seen similar on Ricoh when they lose drum ground.

    I have not tried this yet, but found some time today to check it out. No errors, functions work fine. Just doesn't print what it should be printing. That same image everytime. Everything looks good on the PCB's.
    Might be a software issue.

    Alright a few things.

    Does it only happen when printing internal, copying, printing from network, USB, or any combination of those?

    If it happens no matter what method you do, there's something wrong with the charge roller, MC PWB, or the LSU.

    We had an MC pwb in the field crack, causing yellow toner to cover the entire page. Pulled it in to the office for that and thankfully it wasn't too difficult to troubleshoot.


    One thing you can try, is put the waste box lock on, and pull out the BK charge roller so it's disengaged from the drum, and see what it looks like.
