MY AL-1641CS LEAVES A THICK LINE ON THE PAPER. I


If the drum is rotated in the proper direction, it should be clean. If the line on your copy is in about the same location from to back as the line on the drum then your only option is going to be to replace the drum unit. The drum unit contains a drum cleaning blade that is supposed to clean the drum as it is being rotated. This is apparently not working in your case. These cleaner blades can be replaced if you have someone locally that can do it. The cost of a cleaner blade is about $20.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

My Sharp AL-1641cs won't print. Just keeps flashing red drum.


SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE TONER CARTRIDGE, THEY GO THRU LONGER WARM-UP PERIODS WHEN THE TONER GETS LOW AND IF YOU LET IT RUN YOU WILL SEE RED LIGHTS LIKE STACKED CANNON BALLS, WHICH MEANS ITS OUT OF TONER

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.

Sharp al1340 copier won't copy


those dots mean toner, when they blink it's empty. replace the toner cartridge. open the front door and pull it out. pull the seal on the new toner and slide it in. shut the door. that was easy! Good Luck!

Check a service manual on resetting the drum counter. You have to reset this counter to tell the machine it has a new drum
