Question about Sharp AL 1215 Black and White Copier

2 Answers

I have a Sharp al 1010 that is always indicating the toner is out, even though I replaced the cartridge with a new one (twice..thought there was an issue with the toner cartridge). Also recently replaced the drum as well. Machine turns on ok, then runs & runs & finals stops indicating no toner. Help! Can this be repaired or is it time to get a new copier?

I fixed This! On ours it was a secondary motor that turns the toner gears that was siezed up. It is the one with the blue leads. We were lucky enough to have an AL 1631 for parts and it has the same motor.

This is your out of toner indicator. I describe them as a stack of 6 dots. In any case you will need to buy a new toner cartridge or have your current cartridge refilled.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I replaced the Sharp AL-1642CS TD toner cartridges twice. Still flashes the toner symbol. Someone mentioned cleaning the toner sensor. Where is the toner senor located? drjanisch

Where the toner bottle inserts into the holder, make sure the OLD bottles nipple is not stuck in there, this issue will not allow the new toner to flow into the system and the machine thinks it has an empty bottle

Toner error message on copy machine

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.

Replace toner

Dear sir,

Commonly the sharp and toshiba toners are normally sealed units, therefore no toner refill avaibable.
