Question about Sharp Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Sharp AL-1655 CS copier - machine is 4 years old and has new TD cartridge. It was dumping excessive toner which I cleaned up. Also, made grinding noise. When machine opened and TD cartridge removed, I found a very thin strip of metal approximately 10 inches long and 7/16th inches wide which has wire mesh screening running its length and two thing wires running the length of the screening. After removing it, the grinding stopped, but the pages stopped getting any toner. In other words, no printing on the page when it goes through. No error codes are shown. Can I replace the metal strip and will this solve the problem? Is it part of the fuser?

The part that you are talking about is not from the fuser unit. It is from the drum unit, it is most likely the primary charge grid. It is part of the drum that charges the drum..... You may just want to replace the drum unit..... If the grid fell off the plastic holder may be broken... Good Luck

How do I prevent excess toner from spilling out of cartridge and affecting copies?


If you 'replaced' or refitted the original cartridge, then I would suggest that the toner cartridge has failed. If this is the case, please try a new one.
If the original has not done a fair (check manufacturers specification) number of prints, you may be able to ask for a replacement.
If this was a new cartridge, and printer uses separate drums and toner cartridges. Then it could be a faulty drum. Above replacement path could be tried.

The printer says to replace the td cartridge and we just replaced it with a remanufactured one from Staples. The copier is a Sharp AL1655 CS


You may have just answered your own question.. Did you follow the instruction and take off all the tape.. Also, need you shake the cartridge side to side to looosen up the toner... If that does not work.... You know what to do

I have a SHARP al-1661cs copier/printer. i keep getting a "replace TD cartridge" message. I have replaced the cartridge and it still come on every couple of days. i take the cartridge out, shake it and the...


Are you having your cartridges refilled?
By "replace TD cartridge" message do you mean the little stack of 6 red dots on the control panel?
The sensor for this condition is contained within the toner cartridge. The sensor reads the mixture of developer to toner ratio and tells the machine to add toner when needed. If you are having this problem with 3 different toner cartridges then I would suspect the toner add drive system. If you are having just the 1 cartridge refilled and have had the problem with the last 3 refills then the cartridge itself may be the problem.
I'll let you repond then we will see if further info is required.
Thank You for using Fixya.

I replaced the Sharp AL-1642CS TD toner cartridges twice. Still flashes the toner symbol. Someone mentioned cleaning the toner sensor. Where is the toner senor located? drjanisch


Where the toner bottle inserts into the holder, make sure the OLD bottles nipple is not stuck in there, this issue will not allow the new toner to flow into the system and the machine thinks it has an empty bottle

Black line on side of copies


You should replace the drum and toner cartridge if you haven't in the 5 years, that should take care of the lines. The only problem is the cartridges can cost more then the machines is worth... Hope that helps
