    one other thing which is we have a problem with is that i am currently in very remote part of the desert and there is no way of getting a sharp engineer to carry out the adjustments to the machine

The toner cartridge comes in a box and fits into the developer unit. The developer unit is held in the machine by one 'phillips head' screw (usually blue in colour). The silver bag that came with the machine is not toner but actually called a carrier. The developer unit needs to be removed from the machine and the carrier poured into it. Thereafter you replace it in the machine, secure the screw and re-insert the toner cartridge.
However certain settings have to be made on the machine to set the basic parameters for the optimal useage of the machine and this is only done by authorised trained personnel.
I suggest you contact your closest Sharp dealer and ask them to do the necessary.
Regards
Gavin.

    I can't really do any more troubleshooting without physically see the machine.

    if you can shoot some pictures of the machine opening where the toner goes, and the toner itslf will be helpful.

    Since there is no error code or any other indication of error, the best suggestion I have is to try another toner cartridge.





    good luck and let me know if that helps.

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.

Installer of sharp AR-5316


Remove the screws marked and all tapes around the copier, open the tray and remove the screw supporting it. Open the front cover and unscrew the green screw holding developer unit and pullout the unit. Open the 3 screws and pour the developer evenly and return it back. Remove the seals on the toner cartridge and insert it. Power on the copier and make a copy.

Add toner still blinking of sharp AR-5316


the best you can do is to replace the toner cartridge itself. It won't work if you just refill it.
