You could have one of several problems. Seeing as how you just replaced the toner, it could be a defective toner. Did you have the trouble prior to cartridge replacement? Did you replace it with OEM or after-market/refurbed stuff? You could also have a broken corotron wire. On the right side door is an assembly that has a very fine tungsten wire strung across it. This wire places a charge on the paper to "pull" the image off the drum. if it's broken, you will get blank (or almost blank) images). A 3rd possibility I have seen is that your scanner lock is on. Usually this will cause L1 codes, but I have seen cases where it didn't, and your scanner never moves from "home" position to scan your originals, again, resulting in no image being processed, and therefore blank copies. The scanner lock is under the scanner assembly (above the area where your copies come out) on the left side of the machine. It is a dial mechanism that can be turned to either the locked or unlocked position. It's hard to see, and you almost have to stand on your head to get a good view of it. It is not uncommon that in the process of removing copies from the "catch tray" area to accidentally brush it with one's hand, or watch, or ring, and spin it to the locked position. Certainly a bad drum can effect copy quality as well, but before spending the money, I'd check/re-check the other 3 first.

SOURCE: AL-1631 TONER LEAKING
I had same problem for 6 months. Water didn't run on desk, so my unit WAS level. So, I just pulled out
toner & drum and vacuumed up & sprayed air everywhere to clean
up, then I made sure everything was tight (including side door where
the little wire thing you have to clean occasionally with little green
plastic square (supplied w\copier). That piece on door needed to be up
and as far back as it can go (It does move slightly in and out - make
sure it is IN). I then changed the drum (put same cartridge back) -
only this time I made sure everything was really in place tightly. Not
sure which fix did the trick, but it stopped leaking, and I've since
copied over 400 pages since then and also had to change the cartridge
after about 100 pages.
PS I also vacuumed underside the copier unit with tray out, and inside the paper tray as well. I've unsuccessfully cleaned everything up like this before, but 1st time I've changed drum, and 1st time I made sure EVERYTHING was tightly in it's place. Let you know if it starts to leak again. Hope this is helpful to someone out there.
PPS. I am NOT using OEM drums or cartridges, but clearly THAT was NOT MY problem

You have a door on the right side of the machine. in that door is a thin piece of wire mounted inside a bracket. The bracket is white and is at an angle in the door. Do you see that now?

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.
