This tip is proven in our machines could it be AR, ARM or AL series.

Just estimate the level of toner by checking your page count from previous refill. Failure to do so will require you to replace the crum chips or the entire toner cartridge.

hello,
problem is your toner cartridge. inside of the toner cartridge have a toner roller it's didn't circling.or you are using duplicate toner powder.it's doesn't match with sharp ar 5520 developer. or your developer was expired.

The toner cartridge comes with on-chip sensor that counts the toner life. If you allow it to go empty completely that is it gives red triangle which is steady to warn that toner is near empty. You should replenish toner at this time but if you allow it to blink red triangle, that means its completely over and can't be refilled. REPLACE A NEW TONER CARTRIDGE.

I have a SHARP al-1661cs copier/printer. i keep getting a "replace TD cartridge" message. I have replaced the cartridge and it still come on every couple of days. i take the cartridge out, shake it and the error will go away for a couple of days. this has been an on-going problem for the last 3 cartridges. is there a sensor i can clean or bypass? Thank you


Are you having your cartridges refilled?
By "replace TD cartridge" message do you mean the little stack of 6 red dots on the control panel?
The sensor for this condition is contained within the toner cartridge. The sensor reads the mixture of developer to toner ratio and tells the machine to add toner when needed. If you are having this problem with 3 different toner cartridges then I would suspect the toner add drive system. If you are having just the 1 cartridge refilled and have had the problem with the last 3 refills then the cartridge itself may be the problem.
I'll let you repond then we will see if further info is required.
Thank You for using Fixya.
