Your machine is in TONER Lock out. You ran your machine out of toner and it needs to be replaced.
Purchase a new cartridge and you should have your copier working again.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

I have a Sharp SF-2020 pedestal copier. The red triangle dots appeared above the yellow digital copy #. Prior to this, it took over a minute for the copier to "boot up". I added factory toner...

Hi r_finch424,

The blink red triangle means that the toner is completely over and can't be refilled. The toner cartridge comes with on-chip sensor that counts the toner life. To resolve this issue, you need to replace a new toner cartridge.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Can not power off printer using power button.

This indicates you have low toner. Take toner cartridge out and shake it a few times horizontally and replace toner cartridge back in. This will fix the problem temporarily until you get a replacement toner. You will get about 100 copies of so by shaking cartridge.
