Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier

Copier won't print while knob spins

There is a little green knob above the ink cartridge that spins non-stop when I turn on the machine; it won't copy while that wheel is spinning, and I can't get it to stop. This has been a problem from the start. Any help is appreciated.

Unfortunately it sounds like your drum ctg. has a bad cleaning blade. Get it checked out or get a new or remanufactured one. Hope this helps

I found if I took out the toner cartridge and reinserted it this problem corrected, but I had to do it almost all the time and now I am getting black lines.

My Hoover UltraCare 1500 washing machine keeps repeating the spin cycle, even when I turn the programme control knob to stop

Sounds like the timer control switch is messed up. I had the same thing happen to my washer because my roommate was impatient and tried to spin the timer like the big wheel on the Price is Right. The plastic tabs broke and the timer died.

Kenmore washing machine doesn't always spin.

I guess when it spins OK. When it doesn't spin, can you just turn the knob a little to put into spin cycle, or can you wiggle the knob up down side to side and possibly engage spin cycle? If so the switch is not making proper contact. You can continue to operate in the above manner or you can have the switch replaced. The switch could cost quite a bit along with labor and the machine may not be worth it. Your choice of which way you want to go. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Just replaced toner cartidge and after only 200 copies the red triangle in on and the green knob in the cartridge area won't stop spinning and it will not make anymore copies.

Are you sure you have all the tape and seals removed from the cartridge?
If so it sounds like you have received a defective cartridge.
The other thing to try is to remove the cartridge. Hold it level and shake side to side. Sometimes if those cartridges have been setting on end the ink will pack into the front or back of the cartridge.
Check for tape, shake it front to back , then if those 2 things dont work , replace it. It will have a warranty on it.

Xerox XD130df empties toner back into cartridge overflow

that really sounds like a defective toner cartridge. Either there was no developer in the cartridge or the metering blade that limits the ammount that gets onto the roller is bad.
Has to be the toner cartridge. Unfortunatly that may have also ruined the drum and cleaner within the drum cartridge. Return them for an exchange.
The reason it is running and running is that it is trying to read a patch that is developed on the drum and add toner to make a dark enough copy. And that definatly is not happening.
If the laser was not turning on, the machine would come up with a L something code. Besides if the laser was not comming on, the paged would be blank.
You can pretty much eliminate everything but the toner cartridge.

7431-900 brushes don't spin/cover removal

Hey, I just fixed mine!! check out this fix posted previously. The filter mentioned is a wire mesh filter & I used a flathead screw driver to scrape out the dog hair.

"Turned out to be so simple. Look down at the machine. On the right is the green spiral to indicate the wheels are turning. Right above that is a cover that can be popped off to allow access to a small filter. If the filter is blocked, air intake is blocked, and the brushes will not turn. Mine was clogged. Took the 2 seconds to remove the material and the machine was fixed!"
