Minolta did 620 Eror c032

Automatic Toner Density Sensor code, have you had the developer replaced recently? If so was the counter cleared before running the F8 procedure, If not buy new developer and clear the counter first the remove the old developer, DO NOT USE A VACUUM Cleaner the VACUUM Cleaner can create static electricity and destroy the Automatic Toner Density sensor located underneath image unit (See Ribbon Cable). The machine use several counters to determine certain voltage that are applied to certain assy. during the copy and or print process. It is also the only way the copier knows it got a new drum, cleaning blade, and developer, so try the web site below and see if they have the developer. If the cleaning blade is yellow replace it. When was the last the drum was replaced if over 250,000 replace also.

How do i set the counter papaer. I want to set the conter so I know how much paper and ink I am using

There is No way to set the copier to tell you the amount of toner & paper counter. Unless you make a copy of the same exact copy ever time you press the start button. The toner yield is figured out by 5% coverage of toner on a Letter size paper

My printer drum light is lit and will not copy. I have put in a new drum and the is still lit and will not copy

Please follow the bellow instruction…
Open the front panel.
Remove the toner and the drum.
Remove the toner from the drum.
On each side of the toner, there should be a little glass. Put the piece of duck tape on one of them.
Put everything as it was.
Turn on your printer.
Now, the low toner light should be gone and the green light should be on.
Now, you can empty your cartridge.
If the Drum light is still lit after replacing the drum unit, the Drum counter may not be reset.
Reset the Drum counter as follows:

Open the front cover.
Locate the control panel button under the LED lights on the left side.
Pres the control panel button until all lights are lit, and then release it.

The Drum counter is now reset.

Savin 9940DP ''Set Key Counter''

Key counters are used when a copy machine is set up for public use where copies are charged on a per copy basis. Key counters look like small boxes that plug into the side of the machine and they have a counter on them that looks like a cars odometer. A user plugs in the key counter, makes copies and then takes the counter to a register to pay for the copies they made. Sounds like that is what you have going 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.

CC and drum Icon will not go out after changing toner cartridge

This Machine needs a copy cartridge. Replacing the toner will not clear it. The copy cartridge is the drum unit which is why the drum light is on. With the new copy cartridge a chip on the cartridge will reset the counter and clear the "CC" and the drum light. If you cant find this I can send you one. I believe on this model it is user replaceable.
