Sharp AL-1631 Copies has begun to print verticle lines on page.
Sharp Tech Support said clean drum surface with wadded-up paper. (The drum initially appeared a little dirty, but wiped clean with dry cloth) Using paper left fine-line scratches along the surface of the drum and the lines continued to print on the page.

You can reset this indicator by pressing these keys in sequence: Press "C" then press "Exposure Mode" then "C" again then "Exposure Mode" again. Note that the Exposure Mode key is the far left key on the panel. One you press these 4 keys in sequence the display should go blank. Then key in 24 as if to make 24 copies. Then press Print (Green Button) Then key in 7 as if to make 7 copies. Press print again. You should now get flashing 000. Turn machine off then back on and the light should be gone. Here it is in a short version: C, far left, C, far left, 24, print, 7, print, then power off and back on.
If the line is only when you feed the original from the top feeder (not when you place the paper on the glass)....clean the narrow glass (called the **** glass) under the feeder on the right hand side
If that is not it new drum and/or blade is called for
If the toner is low that would cause a problem. If the drum is damaged that would cause a problem too. If you have recently (past month) printed successfully than you might have issues with copy surface. Does the line come when using the auto feeder? Replace/ remove/reinstall the toner cartridge and clean the copy surface. Repost if this does not solve problem.
Several things can cause this problem;
The drum cartridge is not being cleaned properly or there is a problem with the toner cartridge .
Take out the drum cartridge and inspect it for any signs of the defective image.
If that doesnot solve the problem, then Call a tech.
