Check the wast toner case, if is not full, clean the mirrors and the lens if the problem persist change the cleanining blade, its possible that the blade that cleans the drum is worn out.

    These cartridges will eventually need to be emptied of waste toner before being refilled. Your computer will send out a prompt when the cartridges need to be emptied and refilled. You can empty the cartridge yourself with the proper safety precautions.

    1. Remove the cartridge from the printer. Open the access door and lift the plastic clip that holds the cartridge down inside the printer. Lift the cartridge straight up out of its seat on the bar.
    2. Unclip the plate on the side of the cartridge. Pull out the plastic pegs that hold the toner container to the cartridge case and separate the case and container.
    3. Unscrew the two screws holding the plate onto the toner container. Hold the cartridge with two hands inside the plastic bag. Turn the cartridge over and carefully empty the waste toner into the bag. Try not to shake the cartridge around to avoid making a cloud of toner.
    4. Refill the cartridge according to the manufacturer's instructions and reassemble it inside the case. Put the cartridge back into the printer and snap it into place.


    Good luck.

We can not find the manual on our Sharp AL-1631 copier. At first the light (shaped like a Z) came on to the left of the green button and we turned off the machine and now that light is off but a flashing...


The flashing red triangle which should look like a stack of dots is your toner cartridge empty indicator. You will need to replace the toner cartridge with a full one or have your existing one refilled. A manual for this discontinued machine will be difficult to find.

I replaced a new drum cartridge for Sharp AL-1631 Copier, but the warning indicator light is still on and the copier is not working.


To reset the drum light on just about any Sharp AL 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
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!
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have a Sharp AL 1631 copier. The drum replacement indicator came on. I purchased a replacement drum. The indicator continues to blink and the copier will not operate.


You can reset this indicator by pressing these keys in sequence:
Press "C" then press "Exposure Mode" then "C" again then "Exposure Mode" again.
Note that the Exposure Mode key is the far left key on the panel.
One you press these 4 keys in sequence the display should go blank. Then key in 24 as if to make 24 copies. Then press Print (Green Button)
Then key in 7 as if to make 7 copies.
Press print again. You should now get flashing 000.
Turn machine off then back on and the light should be gone.
Here it is in a short version:
C, far left, C, far left, 24, print, 7, print,
then power off and back on.

The green tab is a corona wire cleaner. there is a spot for it on the base of the unit when you open the right door.

This device will not impact printing on the copier whether it is installed or not. It serves as a holder.
