The cleaning blade is in the drum cartridge.
There is no developrer change in that product.
There are 2 cartridges.
The toner and drum.
Toner contains all you need as far as ink. And also the waste sump is on the toner cartridge.
The Drum is a self containted unit that has the cleaning blade and auger built in.

The developer unit is inside the cartridge where the toner sits in. usually if you remove the toner hopper out of the copier and remove the top cover off you will see one compartment with toner and one with developer in it. The carrier is the the type of developer to use. All old developer needs to be removed from the machine as well as the mag roller in order to replace it.

Once it is removed the developer is placed evenly into the comparment. The hopper is reinstalled. Then a service mode is performed to calibrate the developed to make sure that the mixture is equal with the toner.

It should be done by a technician because if it isn't done properly, it will result in light copies being produced. The developer may get contaminated and have to be replace if it isn't done in the proper order.

Developer sign

The developer doesn't need to be reset on AR series machines. Toner and developer are in one cartridge. There is a drum reset. That is service code 24-07.

Did you replace the drum as well?

Sharp copier ar-5316

That unit uses an AR-016TD Toner/Developer Cartridge. The developer is changed each time you replace the toner. To remove the drum unit open the right side cover, then the front cover, remove the TD cartridge, loosen the green screw on the front of the developer unit housing just above the TD slot. carefully remove the DV unit without tipping or you will spill out the existing DV. Then you can pull out the drum unit. There may be a green screw on the drum that must be loosened but I don't think so on that particular model. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Add developer in sharp AR-5316

That model uses a TD cartridge so when you replace the toner the developer is included. The crum chip on the TD cartridge will reset the counters and sets the developer.
