I would say that the drum corona is dirty causing an arc that pulls the toner and dv from the cartridge. I would say a good cleaning from a trained tech will solve the problem. That or a faulty cartridge is it making any noise?

Sharp AL 1540 cs Code CH What is the code and how can I fix it. A new toner cartridge was installed last night.


Check the new unit is correctly seated and open and close all covers on the printer until it clears.
The CH Code is for an open cover but maybe to do with the cartridge not being seated correctly.

I have a red triangle flashing and the copier sounds like it is trying to warm up and then does nothing. what is going on?


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.

We have a Sharp 1641CS copier will not feed or copy


Well one reason the Cartirdge is spilling is due to the cartridge backing up with toner everytime it tries to print, it misfeeds cause the paper feed tires need to be replaced,

Toner error message on copy machine


Is "CH" steady or flashing? If it's steady, the door is not shut properly.
If it's flashing, the machine doesn't detect the presence of the toner cartridge (defective toner cartridge). Try another toner cartridge (an empty cartridge will do).

To get the blue handle to stay locked sometimes takes fiddling with it when the cartridge is in.

Average useful life of Sharp AL-1661CS


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.

Printing line on the right side of paper


I am unsure of one thing in this post, Is the new toner cartridge still spilling out ink and developer?
Now, from there, you need to get a vacuum with a crevice tool and vacuum the inside of the machine very well. There are ridges and stablizer brackets formed into the frame that the toner and developer fall into and sift out onto the paper.
If your cartridge is still dumping the developer and ink from the same end, I highly suspect the machine is not level from front to back and as the machine runs the toner and developer are moving to that end of the cartridge. Once that happens that cartridge will spill the contents out into the machine.
A thorough cleaning is needed, and even at that, it may take some time for all of the contamination to run itself out. It is difficult to remove all of it.
