What's the difference between a drum and a toner cartridge? A toner cartridge is just that: a cartridge that contains toner. The drum does all the work.


Product Manuals
Sharp AL-1641CS - Installing a Drum Cartridge

Upon setup of the Sharp AL-1641CS copy machine, a drum cartridge will have to be installed. This cartridge must be replaced regularly on an 18,000 copy cycle. The unit will warn users when the cartridge is about 1,000 copies away from needing to be replaced by lighting a drum indicator light. At this point, it is a good idea to order a new cartridge and replace the drum once the indicator light starts to blink.


In order to replace the drum unit for this machine, the toner cartridge must be removed first. To remove the toner cartridge, begin by opening the multi purpose bypass tray if it is not already open. Open the side cover by pressing the OPEN button, then drop the front cover open by pressing in on its sides.

Behind the front cover, the toner cartridge and drum unit will be seen. To remove the toner cartridge, press the button on the end of it to release it from the copy machine and pull it straight out of the unit. Keep it out of sunlight while the drum unit is being replaced.


Once the toner cartridge has been safely removed, the drum unit can be pulled out of the machine by its handle. Old drum cartridges can and should be recycled properly. To install a new drum cartridge, the protective cover on the cartridge must first be removed, then the cartridge can be slid into the machine where the old one sat before.

Reinstall the toner cartridge by sliding it into place next to the drum and pressing the release button until it is pushed all the way in. With both toner and drum securely in place, close the front cover first. Close the side cover by pressing on the finger pad next to the OPEN latch, making sure that it closes entirely. Any indicator lights should now go off and the machine should become operational again.

Sharp AL-1641CS Review


Overview:

The Sharp AL-1641CS’s extremely conservative specifications make it a fairly undesirable multifunctional device, though users will not be disappointed with its overall capabilities outside of its sluggish speed.


Pros:

A 30 page automatic document feeder sits atop the Sharp AL-1641CS and makes multiple page copy and scan projects manageable. The ADF, as well as the unit’s paper storage trays and document glass, can handle paper up to 14” in length and 8.5” wide.

The unit’s copy speed exceeds that of its print speed, but is still fairly disappointing at 16 copies per minute. Continuous copies can be made in quantities of up to 99 at once and the device’s first copy and print out time slides just under the 10 second mark at 9.6 seconds. It will take a full 16 seconds when making a copy from warm up mode and from complete shut off mode it will take 23 seconds before the first reproduction appears.

Basic copy functions, such as reduction and enlargement, are present in the Sharp AL-1641CS. Zooming can be down to degrees from 50% - 200% in 1% increments or in one of six preset sizes (50%, 64%, 78%, 100%, 129%, and 200%). Both scanning and copying are made possible by a moving optics/stationary top system with built in automatic exposure. This system can output 256 levels of grey at 600 x 600 dots per inch.

Surprisingly, the otherwise fairly minimalistic Sharp AL-1641CS is equipped with a built in duplexor. When utilizing automatic duplexing, paper usage, and therefore cost, can be reduced by as much as half. Automatic duplexing also adds a special touch of professionalism to certain types of material that simply is suited better for two sided printing.

The unit’s optical scan resolution of 600 x 1200 dots per inch is fairly standard for a unit of this magnitude, but the optimized scanning for the device can reach only 2400 x 2400 dots per inch; a much lower maximum quality than almost any other multifunctional device.

With dimensions of 19.6 x 18.2 x 11.7 inches (W x D x H) and a solid weight of 43 pounds, the Sharp AL-1641CS is certainly not the smallest unit out there, but is still suitable for someone’s desktop.


Cons:

With a print speed of only 12 pages per minute, the Sharp AL-1641CS is considerably slower than pretty much anything still operating today. A print speed this slow could effectively contribute to considerable wait times that could easily be considered unacceptable by today’s standards.

A similar printer, the Xerox XD100, came out at around the same time as the Sharp AL-1641CS with a similar price point but superior specifications in almost every area. This means that the device is not only dated and obsolete in today’s market, but that it was an inferior product right from the start.

A maximum monthly duty cycle of only 5,000 copies or prints means that the Sharp AL-1641CS is not suitable for high volume usage, and is really best for an individual user alone with light print and copy demands.
