Sharp Printer Manufacture Date


I have a Sharp MX-2610N printer and I have heard that you can tell what the manufacture date is of the machine by certain digits in the serial number. Does anyone know which digits?

Kind regards

The first digit is the year.  I.E. A  0 would be 2010, 1 would be 2011 etc. The last digit is the month. I.E. 1 is jan, 2 is feb etc , 0 is oct X is nov and Y is dec. I hope that makes sense.
Don't thin k that you can easily with Sharp, but the MX2610n is a fairly recent model.
released in  the last 12-18 months in the UK

I have been told previously by a Sharp engineer that its something like the last 3 digits which tells you the month and year in. But unfortunately, it isn't, as the last 3 digits of my printer is 000. I cannot get in contact with him any more as I don't know where he is.

I think that has changed. we are sharp dealers.
We have several that have been installed in the last 12 months (some on the same day), and the serial numbers seem to bear no relationship.
Often there is an offset or a letter that tells you when to start counting from.
I'll ask our Sharp Tech later.

also, where are you looking at the serial number?
it is actually on the left hand side looking from the front, in a small recess near the copier base towards the rear.
If you have a finisher, it will hide it.
Paper stands have serial numbers on the back.
it seems to be a code based on the first 4 digits and the last.
