Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier
If your copies are fine just reset the drum unit counter. To reset the drum light, press the following key's in sequence and as quickly as possible (with 4 seconds for the first 4 keys)
Press "C" then the far left key (exposure mode) then the "C" key then the far left again.
So in other words C, far left, C, far left
If done correctly the display should go blank.
Then key in 24 as if you were going to make 24 copies.
Now press the "print" button
Now key in 7 as if you were making 7 copies
Now press the print button again.
You should now be getting flashing zero's on the display.
Turn the machine off then on again and your drum light should be gone!
You can reset this counter at least once to get twice the life out of your drum unit.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

SOURCE: xerox 5305 copier excess toner
sounds like faulty drum cleaning blade,which is usually contained in the replacement drum module.I would be inclined to take the drum unit back where you got it (unless you replaced it with a second-hand one) 99% certain the problem is contained in that module

With "J2" flashing, press:
1. "CLEAR" button
2. "AUTO" button, then again
3. "CLEAR" button
4. "AUTO" button
Do it fairly quickly. If it's done quickly enough the display goes off. When it does:
5. enter "2" and "4" (see "24" on display)
6. Press "START/COPY"
7. Press "7"
8. Press "START/COPY"
If display doesn't go off repeat steps 1 to 4 but faster, until display is off.

check the contacts inside of copier cavity where they line up with drum unit and make sure they are in correct position.
