My sharp copier that uses the AL1000 toner ctg was working fine then suddenly developed straight, evenly spaced lines over the copies. changed both drum and td ctg and paper and the lines are still there. the best way I can describe the lines is they look like cordoroy The lines are vertical,evenly spaced about a millimeter apart covering the whole page

Re: my sharp copier that uses the\r\nAL1000 toner ctg
The inner roller of the copier is faulty.also called pressure roller.its actually not rotating fluently like it should but its actually jumping so its making the lines on the paper .where you insert the drum unit.remove that unit.that unit is connected to the printer by a thin wire.a small cord from the drum unit is inserted in the copier portion.if that wire is loose or not connected then also this happens.and the location on pressure roller is that its exactly located behind the drum unit.you will have to remove the drum unit out so it can be easily seen.
thanks.this will help.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

This triangle means that the toner supply is needed. It comes first as a steady triangle meaning toner is running low and eventually flashing triangle which means toner is completely empty and copy cannot run. There are two methods of replacing toner ; Refilling and cartridge replacing.
You can refill by opening the waste container and then removing the lid on the unit. Use a sprout provided in Sharp Al1000 toner bottle or improvise by folding a paper into a funnel shape.
For cartridge , pullout the old cartridge and replace with a Sharp Al100td cartridge.
Hi, this triangle means that the toner is empty. This can also be caused by a defective developer unit drive gears. Check that it is okay if not replace the gears. Replace the toner cartridge or refill the toner in its unit. Make sure you empty the waste on its side as it may cause some noise or toner spills. Use cartridge Sharp Al100td or refill with Sharp Al1000 toner bottle. All the best.
With that machine the toner cartridge also contains developer. Without getting too in depth, it sounds like maybe your toner cartridge is leaking a bit of developer which takes with it a bit of toner. Developer is made up of tiny metal particles which are supposed to stay inside the developer unit. As the seals wear in the developer unit (which is part of the cartridge) it allows a little to leak out causing the problems you are seeing. When you take the toner cart. out, at the rear side (part that goes the furthest into the machine) you'll see a white foam seal. If you notice some excess toner (and probably developer) sticking straight out from that, it could be that the seal has a jagged edge which is dragging developer off of the magnetic roller and depositing it on the drum making the line you speak of on the left hand side. Also check to make sure the copier is sitting level, if it's not then the concentration of toner at one end of the developer unit is too great and some can be allowed to spill out.
So in short, it's probably not the drum that's at fault, it's more likely the toner cartridge.
Is it worth replacing? There's no easy way to answer that. If the machine is used in a fairly high volume workplace, it's probably worth replacing. If you could get by with a smaller cheaper machine (brother, HP, lexmark etc.) that does printing, scanning, faxing and copying you may be better off.
If you buy a new toner cartridge the developer is already in it.
Are you mixing ink and toner to rebuild cartridges? If your just a user, once you replace the toner cartridge you have added new ink with the developer in it.
If you are not mixing and rebuilding the toner cartridge, and installing a new one, You do not need developer.
first you press the exposure key and select the manual exposure mode then press and hold exposure key for 5 seconds when it blinks select the position to dark and press exposure key again,try to make the copy if no defrence ,select the photo mode and press and hold the exposure key again select the dark position by dark exposure key and press exposure key again.check the copy if again no difference change the DEVELOPER
