Question about Sharp AR-407 Copier
On the AR-407:
To remove the developer/toner cartridge, there is a green lever inside the front door/cover. Pull it down like you are going to refill the toner, pull it out, and there is a release lever on the right side bottom, between the cartridge and the copier. This will release the cartridge and allow you to slide the whole mechanism out.
There are 4 screws that hold the toner box onto the developer. (NOT THE TOP MOST COVER SCREWS) 2 on the left side (with the toner hopper on your right), and 1 screw on the right top, and 1 screw on the right side by the handle you use to pull the cartridge out of the machine. Make sure you also disconnect the electrical connector that attaches to the hopper motor.
Be careful not to spill the toner or developer as you are seperating the two.
The developer unit is the bottom unit.
Dump out old developer (make sure you get all of it by turning the gear on the back side). If you don't have a toner/developer vacuum, then just get as much out as you can. A normal vacuum motor will eat itself in a very short time trying to vacuum up toner or developer, because the particles are too small for a regular filter.
When you get all the developer out, then carefully open the new developer packet, and evenly pour it in. Put it back together the same way you took it apart.
