Let the machine run they will cycle a long period of time trying to add toner, if you let it run you'll probably get the toner lite to come on.

All the lights are flashing. I have put in a new cartridge, unplugged and turned off the machine, I cleaned it with the air duster. It will not work


Try the following tricks:
Disconnect any USB cables attached to the printer and remove any memory cards from drive bay. Restart the computer. Unlock the ink cartridge locking clips. Remove all ink cartridges. Lock down the ink cartridge locking clips. Close the main printer door Turn the printer off with the Power button and wait for the printer to shut down. Unplug the printer AC adapter from the printer and the wall outlet or surge protector. Wait approximately fifteen to forty-five seconds to allow all current to dissipate from printer. Re-plug only the AC adapter into the wall outlet then into the printer, but do not plug in the USB cable. Wait for the appropriate missing ink cartridge error to verify that printer can recognize this error. Re-insert one ink cartridge only, to minimize confusion in case one of the cartridges is defective, and print an internal test page. If no errors are found, insert the other ink cartridge(s) and ensure that they are functioning by performing internal test pages or calibration pages. If an error occurs due to a defective cartridge, perform the appropriate steps for Resolving Ink Cartridge Rejections. After returning to the main Windows screen, reconnect the USB cable to the computer then to the printer. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Locked up AL-1642CS with blinking Drum Light


the clear key may be stuck which seems to lock up your machine. The procedure to reset the drum lite is clear, auto (exposure setting), clear, auto when hit in a timely manner the display will go blank. Enter 24 then press the start key, then enter 07 and press the start key again. If you can't get the keys to work the circuit board may have cold solder joints.
Good luck

I have 2 model al-1540cs copiers that are producing blank copies. The scanner doesn't seem to be moving and is in the unlocked position. I am getting no error messages, the paper is facing in the right...


When [L1-00] appears, the scan head
locking switch is locked. Turn off the
power, release the scan head locking
switch, WAIT 10 SECONDS and turn the power back on.

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.

Replacing Drum Catridge


Hello, Here are the steps involved in replacing the drum assembly as copied from a users manual:

DRUM CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT
The useful life of the drum cartridge is approximately 18,000 copies. When the internal counter reaches approximately 17,000 copies, the drum replacement required indicator will light up indicating that replacement of the drum cartridge will be needed soon. When the indicator begins to blink, the unit will stop operating until the cartridge is replaced. Replace the drum cartridge at this time.


1 Remove the TD cartridge (Toner Cartridge). Hold the drum cartridge handle and
gently pull the cartridge out. Dispose of the old drum cartridge in accordance with local regulations.
3 Remove the new drum cartridge from the protective bag and remove the protective cover from the cartridge. Then gently install the new drum cartridge.


When closing the covers, be sure to close the front cover securely and then close the side cover. If the covers are closed in the wrong order, the covers may be damaged. Do not remove the protective cover on the drum portion (black paper) of
a new drum cartridge before use. The cover protects the drum against external light.
Do not touch the surface of the drum (green portion) of the cartridge. Doing so may cause smudges on the copies.


4 Gently install the TD cartridge. Close the front cover and then the side cover by pressing the round projections near the side cover open button. The drum
replacement required indicator will go out and the start indicator will light up.
