Sharp AR-5330 Blinking "CH"

We recently received new toner for our AR-5320. The toner cartrigde is a AR-016TD. It has difficulty fitting into the machine. I can get it to fit sometimes but not always. I even turned the white gears on the ends in hope that the teeth in the gear not lining up was our problem. I was able to get the blinking CH to stop when doing this. We recently had a power surge and the blinking CH is back. I've tried everything I did before to make it go away but it is still blinking. I don't think these new cartidges fit very well as they are shaped slightly different. I am able to get the cartridge to insert all the least it appears so. I've opened and closed all the doors on numberous occations with no luck. I am in a remote area of Afghanistan so no hope in getting a repairman out our way anytime soon. Please help.

    I realize the Blinking CH means the DV is not installed correctly but ours there any other troubleshooting for this error. These new AR-016Td toner cartidges aren't helping matters.

    Only advice I can give is to have both cartridges side by side and see what the differences are. If it's the gears un the back of the toner cartridges can you swap them ? protruding piece of plastic, break it ? Otherwise call the supplier and see what they say, a lot of times they already know the problem and can help.

    Good Luck.

My sharp ar-5316e error code CH please help me

Hope you are fine, ch are in two forms steady one and the blinking ch.
Steady CH
This is associated with door switch for either front cover or side cover. Check that the front cover of the copier and the right side is well closed.
Blinking CH
This is associated with the toner cartridge or the developer unit not being sensed by the machine. Make sure that the developer unit is well locked in the machine. Pull out the toner cartridge and insert back with some force into the machine, it should clear this sign. If it does not, replace a new cartridge Sharp Ar016ft and you are done. Good luck.

CH steady means cover is open. Close either front or right cover well.
CH blinking means developer unit or toner cartridge not installed. Remove and return well and firmly.
