Just recd a new copier. It came with a toner cartridge and developer. The manual does not mention where to put the developer. Does it go in the toner cartridge? I am printing blank pages now.

Inside this machine has 3 sections. Toner cartridge, developing unit and drum unit. First pull out the toner cartridge then you will see a blue anodized screw, loosen this screw then pull this section ( developing unit ), if there's already toner inside the chamber, clean it and pour the all the developer into the chamber then put back the developing section, tighten the blue screw and install the toner cartridge.

I replaced the cartridge and now it wont copy anything

If you mean blank copies then you either have installed a bad cartridge or perhaps you did not pull out the toner seal tape from the new cartridge before you installed it. If not then just remove the new cartridge and check one of the 2 ends of the cartridge for a small tape sticking out. Pull that out of the cartridge which will release the toner supply to the developer roller. Then re-install.
If you did this already then test for a bad cartridge by shaking the old toner cartridge back and forth a few times and put it back into the machine. It should work well enough to at least test for blank copies.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Void copy

Have replaced the developer? I don't remember if the copier toner is the developer unit. Did you just put a new toner in. If so, you may have a defective cartridge.

How do I put developer in a ar208s sharp copier

The developer comes in a bag and is poured into the developer unit which is the unit that the toner unit slides into. You should have a screw to loosen to slide the developer unit out. It has a silver magnetic roller that will be visible. There will be an open slot on top of this unit to carefully pour the developer contents into keeping it level. Reinstall and secure the holding screw. install your toner and test. I hope that this helps. Usually a service tech will set this up for you before you see it.

Sharp AR-208D copier needs developer - how to add?

Set-up for this copier sure isn't well-documented. We just got ours working today, found out how to add the toner by following the instructions here: (yes, it lists a different model number, but the instructions worked, and were linked from the ar-208d product page from the supplier)

The Unit where you've put the toner cartridge could be to far from the drum. Make sure your developer unit (unit where you've put the cartridge in) is locked in place.

Add developer in sharp AR-5316

That model uses a TD cartridge so when you replace the toner the developer is included. The crum chip on the TD cartridge will reset the counters and sets the developer.
