Take the new cart. out and reinstall the old cart. Does the noise disappear? I would tap and shake the toner cart. BUT BE CAREFULL, the cart is ready to spill toner. On the box and in the instructions it tells you, or should, that you must shake and tap the outside of the cart. This is due to settling and the toner maybe packed. By tapping and shaking it will feel the toner. If the toner is packed it will put undue pressure on the augers inside the toner cart. and cause a grinding noise. If after tapping and shaking, reinstall the new cart. and check. If everything is ok -- great. If the noise remains contact the company your purchased the cart. from and ask for a replacement. These cart. are mass produced and mostly reused ( refurbed). Parts wear now and they do not replace the inside parts, they just repack with toner and seal.

We have a Sharp Model AL-1631 unit that keeps running but doesn?t make copies. Any idea what is wrong and how to fix it? Thanks.


When these Sharp AL series machine just run and run it means they are low or out of toner. This is especially true if you are hearing a light thump thump noise while it is running. Just let it run and after 5 minutes or so it should shut down and then replace toner light should come on. This is the small red light that looks like a stack of 6 dots.
Either replace the toner or have your existing toner refilled.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

If it sounds like gears grinding it may be the fuser unit. The bushings and gears need replaced or new fuser unit.

LOUD GRINDING NOISE


The black dust is toner. Be carful as it is carcenagenic (dont get it on your skin) you will need to dispose of the leaking toner cartridge and get a new one. also you will need to clean the printer very carfully to get rid of the spilt toner. A combination of spray duster and a toner hoover are the best way. do not use a normal hoover as you will kill it.

It is always possible that you have done serious damage to the printer using a non standard toner cartridge. I would recomend getting a qualified person to give the printer a good service.
