Did you replace the drum with a Sharp brand drum? I recently replaced a drum in my Sharp AL-1642CS, the replacement drum fits ok, and the lights you describe are gone now, but it does make an annoying noise that is new. I wish I would have spent the money to get a Sharp drum, then you can call them directly for support. When I have called them they have been very helpful.

I CHANGED THE TONER AND DRUM, WHERE ARE THE MIRRORS AND GLASS ON SHARP 1551-CS


Does this happen when you print!! Not copy. If it does when you print might check the transfer roller and or transfer & sep assemble across from the drum. If printing is OK then clean the glass on/inside the doc feeder you will see it follow the paper thur the doc feeder

The photocopier keeps flashing a red light and have no manual


If light is blinking it can mean a few things like the toner/developer (TD Cartridge) needs to be changed soon or the drum needs to be changed or there is a paper jam or misfeed of paper.

I have a Sharp Al-2040cs when I turn it on the misfeed indicator is blinking. I checked it there no misfeed paper or piece of paper inside. How can I fix this problem?


The MISFEED Indicator blinks when a MISFEED has occurred. Remove the misfed paper referring to the the description of MISFEED REMOVAL beginning on page 65 of the pdf Manual at:

http://files.sharpusa.com/Downloads/ForHome/HomeOffice/PrintersFaxMachines/Manuals/cop_man_AL2030_AL2040CS.pdf

When the MISFEED Indicator is blinking you should look closer at the paper feed area (see page 66 of the PDF). You may need to remove the paper tray to find any remnants of paper. If after closing the side cover the light does not stop blinking you will need to follow through as per the illustrated instructions.

Remember after removing jammed paper, you need to press the clear key to clear the MISFEED error.

If after doing all this the error signal has not cleared, power down the printer; unplug from the power supply; let rest 5 - 10 minutes; plug back i to power supply; turn printer on and see if this resolves issue.

Trust this is helpful. Please vote. :)

I've lost my manual. Does the red light that


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.

Misfeed indicator


It could be comming from the paper feed mechanism above the paper tray. Make sure its installed properly. It could be as simple as cleaning the feed tires.

Red cylinder looking error message


That is the drum replacement indicator. Timing on those things can make a person insane at times.
You need to now replace the drum cartridge.
