The new toner cartridge I placed in the Sharp AL 800 copier is not working. I am getting a CL message code and I cannot determine why I am getting this message. I've tried manuerving the cartridge and wonder what else I can do.
Is "CH" steady or flashing? If it's steady, the door is not shut properly. If it's flashing, the machine doesn't detect the presence of the toner cartridge (defective toner cartridge). Try another toner cartridge (an empty cartridge will do).
To get the blue handle to stay locked sometimes takes fiddling with it when the cartridge is in.

Check the machine for a **** or dust glass above the drum.
Check and clean coronas, the wires and shells may be dirty reducing charge.
Run a few white copies, to check of the toner / carrier ratio is low.
the problem in your machine is on the drum unit there is a arching on the mc unit.located in the upper portion of the drum unit.if you have an old drum unit try to install it again just for testing.and check if ther is a dumping toner again.
You should replace the drum and toner cartridge if you haven't in the 5 years, that should take care of the lines. The only problem is the cartridges can cost more then the machines is worth... Hope that helps
one problem with this machine, a small pin comes out on the paper release handle in the back, which lets on side of the paper lift tray to come up higher than the other. might look in that area. good luck
