On my Sharp AlL 1631 copier there is a replace drum light that will not go off. The unit will not work until I can get this light to go off. I have replaced the drum with a new one that I tried in another unit and it is good.I have replace the toner cartridge and the copier lid assembly. I have cleaned everything in the copier and the drum light will not go out. At power up the unit acts like it is going to work but then the drum light will come on solid and nothing will work. Can someone please help me with this issue? My email is email@example.com

The red light that looks like an empty cylinder on the Sharp AL 1631 Grayscale Copier panel is the "drum replacement required" indicator. The "cartridge replacement" indicator is represented by 6 dots forming a triangular shape.
The drum replacement indicator lights up when there are about 1000 copies left until its end of life. It is only when the indicator starts blinking that the drum really needs replacement.
The part number for the drum is AL-100DR.
I hope this helps.

the problem in your machine is on the drum unit there is a arching on the mc unit.located in the upper portion of the drum unit.if you have an old drum unit try to install it again just for testing.and check if ther is a dumping toner again.
Your unit definetly needs a new drum. The usual yield for this consumable is upt ot 15,000 pages, so at the stated rate, the unit yielded more than average. AL-1000 series share the same toner and drum, so finding remanufactured (or recycled) drum units should be no problem. In Puerto Rico, they are sold for about $79.00.
