Question about Sharp AL-1641CS Laser Digital Copier
I had a blinking drum replace light and the machine would still not copy anything, it's suppose to copy until the light is on continuously. My drum counter is showing 016018 copies. All of the buttons on the consol are not funtioning. All I can do is turn the machine on and off and it goes through its warm up routine.
I also see a bunch of suggestions to reset the drum counter but like I said above the buttons are not functioning after the warm up period. I also don't see the buttons " * " and " # " on my key pad. Help! I've already purchased a new drum and TD cartridge.
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.
