  1. Any idea how to turn this function off, as I manage the copiers at my workand staff are now doing this and it’s not being charge to there department.

    • 1. Open the web interface
      2. Login as administrator
      3. Click User Control on the left menu, then click Default Settings under User Control on the left menu
      4. There’s a checkbox that says “Disabling of printing from invalid users,” make sure this is checked. This setting will tell the machine to refuse any prints without a code attached to them.

  2. I’ve recently reveied a ar235. Im unable to locate a printer expansion and was hoping that this copier might be able to print as well. Is there anyway to make this work with the Ar235?

  3. What could have happened to my sharp MX-4141, it suddenly stopped printing when i connect it with the port cable to my Computer
