Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier

1 Answer

Red light when you turn the copier on, a red light in the shape of a cylinder lights up. Does that mean the copier needs a new drum? The light is located next to the "three dots that form a triangle" light which I think means you need new toner.

Why it prints grey background


Either the toner cartridge is very close to empty or the drum unit needs to be replaced. Check your warning lights. Yellow = toner, red = drum. If no warning lights, pull out the toner/drum unit and remove the toner cartridge. Have a look at the cylinder in the drum (DR2125) - if it is very black and matt looking you will need to have it cleaned or just replace it.

My Sharp AL 1000 has quit copying!


The triangle or stack of 6 dots is the toner cartridge light. The drum light looks like a cylinder or aa battery.
If you open the right side door, then the front door you will see the 2 cartridges. The toner cartridge is on the left and should have a large green button you push down on to release and slide out. Later or when needed you can slide out the drum cartridge AFTER you remove the toner.
You might have a local source to get your toner cartridge refilled. Or just order a new one and unpack it, then slide it in and your all set.
About $50 for refill or about $100 for new.
Good Luck

I've lost my manual. Does the red light that


The red light that looks like an empty cylinder on the Sharp AL 1631 Grayscale Copier panel is the "drum replacement required" indicator. The "cartridge replacement" indicator is represented by 6 dots forming a triangular shape.
The drum replacement indicator lights up when there are about 1000 copies left until its end of life. It is only when the indicator starts blinking that the drum really needs replacement.
The part number for the drum is AL-100DR.
I hope this helps.

Paper keeps getting jammed and is covered with ink powder. Looks like part of the reel on the left side is broken on the cylindal shaped thing. Can that part be replaced?


That cylindrical thing is the drum; the drum is photosensitive, meaning it is sensitive to light much like film in a camera. If paper is jamming and is covered in toner, that means the drum is possibly losing its effective properties and it is not being cleaned properly. The drum can be replaced; contact a Xerox Rep for service.

When i turn on the copier it is stuck on 10 copies and a light flashes to the left of the copy number. I don't have a manual. I don't know what the flashing light means.


If the light is a red light with a flash shape then the machine probably has a jam. Look for jams and once you have cleared any jams switch the machine off and then on again. It could be the toner light if there are about six red dots - in this case you need to add toner.

Tv won't turn on red lights blinking


You are hearing the spark gap mounted on the lamp ballast board. If you can hear that sound, that means everything in the lamp driver circuit is working except the lamp!

Get a new lamp.

Red cylinder looking error message


That is the drum replacement indicator. Timing on those things can make a person insane at times.
You need to now replace the drum cartridge.
