We just replaced the drum and now are getting 'shadow' images of our documents on every copy. The image starts about half way down the page.


After replacing the drum, did you reset the drum counter? Also, it is best to change out the developer at the same time you replace the drum, this is because both the drum and developer need to be calibrated with each other.

It sounds like you didn't manually reset the counter and now the charge on the drum is to high, I would suggest not using the machine until to reset the counter.

Let me know.

Do you know how to reset the drum counter for Sharp Al-1641


Reset the drum count by pressing "Clear" then "Exposure Mode" then "Clear" then "Exposure Mode"
Exposure mode is far left key on panel. You need to do this fairly quickly so that the display goes blank.
Once display goes blank then key in 24 then press print, then key in 7 then press print. You should now be getting flashing 000
Turn machine off then on and light should be gone.
Short version: C,far left,C,far left,24,print,7,print

This works on MOST sharp AL series copiers.
Press these keys in sequence:
Clear → Density select → Clear→ Density select
display should go blank. Then enter:
24 as if you were making 24 copies then press print
then enter 7 as if you were making 7 copies then press print
if successful you should see flashing 000
turn machine off then on again and the drum light should be gone.
Good Luck

Locked up AL-1642CS with blinking Drum Light


Older Sharp AL copiers will go on working with the drum light blinking, but yours will not. Newer models do stop working when the drum reaches its limit. Now keep in mind that just as almost every copier in the market, these units count the copies they make in order to determine toner & drum life. So it is possible to reset the drum counter if you inspect the unit and see no markings or visible wear & tear. Also keep in mind that the toner & drum units have been the same for all AL units through time, so there are plenty of good replacements in the market (not recycled, but re-manufactured or brand-new compatibles).

As for your unit, if the drum is Sharp original or a good quality replacement, you should have to do nothing after installation, for the internal chip in the drum will tell the copier to reset the counter and begin working automatically. However if that is not the case, or should you want to reset the counter on your existing drum, this is the correct sequence to do so.

  1. Identify the buttons used for adjusting exposure (darker or lighter copies), amount of copies, clear copies and start copying.
  2. Now press the following sequence of buttons: [CLR], [EXPOSURE], [CLR], [EXPOSURE]
  3. Your unit should turn off the numbers in the panel.
  4. Now press 24 as if asking for 24 copies and press [START].
  5. Press 07 as if asking for 7 copies and press [START].
  6. Your unit should restart by itself and start working normally.
Be blessed.

Drum and Toner al-1631


If you add the toner, there is a chip on the back of the toner cartridge that has to be relplaced.
With the drum, you take off the front green cover. There is a set of gears in there. One of them has a flag like tab sticking out of a segmented gear. You have to get the gears and flag set so that the the flag is up and to the right. It will then make one swipe pass the drum replacement switch and reset the counter.
