I am not sure about the 208 but try this procedure I have posted here on Fixya. I beleive it may work for you. It sure won't hurt to try.

To reset the drum light on just about any Sharp AL or AR series copier 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
Some model's use 2 other initial codes, so you may need to use one of these 2 alternate codes to get your display to go blank. The rest of the procedure is the same.
Alternate codes are: #, * , C, * or pound,star,C,star and also
#, Interupt, C, Interupt
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 usually reset this counter at least once to get twice the life out of your drum unit.

Sharp code f2-64


Hi,
The code refers to the black toner supply fault. This is usually caused by the toner compacting in the toner cartridge. There have been a couple of instances where the plastic strip remains when the cartridge is replaced. If this isn't the case then the solution is to remove the black toner cartridge & gently but firmly tapping the toner cartridge to break up the compacted toner. Re-installing the cartridge & turning the machine off & then on should reset the error code. If the code remains it may also indicate a faulty toner cartridge & this can be proven by replacing the black toner cartridge with another one. If, after replacing the toner cartridge with a replacement, the code re-occurs then this could indicate damaged toner supply gears which would require a technician to verify, but the most common cause tends to be the toner cartridge is at fault.
Hope this helps.
Dave.

I've lost my manual. Does the red light that


The red light that looks like an empty cylinder on the Sharp AL 1631 Grayscale Copier panel is the "drum replacement required" indicator. The "cartridge replacement" indicator is represented by 6 dots forming a triangular shape.
The drum replacement indicator lights up when there are about 1000 copies left until its end of life. It is only when the indicator starts blinking that the drum really needs replacement.
The part number for the drum is AL-100DR.
I hope this helps.

Replacing Drum Catridge


Hello, Here are the steps involved in replacing the drum assembly as copied from a users manual:

DRUM CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT
The useful life of the drum cartridge is approximately 18,000 copies. When the internal counter reaches approximately 17,000 copies, the drum replacement required indicator will light up indicating that replacement of the drum cartridge will be needed soon. When the indicator begins to blink, the unit will stop operating until the cartridge is replaced. Replace the drum cartridge at this time.


1 Remove the TD cartridge (Toner Cartridge). Hold the drum cartridge handle and
gently pull the cartridge out. Dispose of the old drum cartridge in accordance with local regulations.
3 Remove the new drum cartridge from the protective bag and remove the protective cover from the cartridge. Then gently install the new drum cartridge.


When closing the covers, be sure to close the front cover securely and then close the side cover. If the covers are closed in the wrong order, the covers may be damaged. Do not remove the protective cover on the drum portion (black paper) of
a new drum cartridge before use. The cover protects the drum against external light.
Do not touch the surface of the drum (green portion) of the cartridge. Doing so may cause smudges on the copies.


4 Gently install the TD cartridge. Close the front cover and then the side cover by pressing the round projections near the side cover open button. The drum
replacement required indicator will go out and the start indicator will light up.

Red cylinder looking error message


That is the drum replacement indicator. Timing on those things can make a person insane at times.
You need to now replace the drum cartridge.
