Sharp AL-1661CS Toner Cartridge -6000Pages (Sharp AL1661CS Toner
  OVER 100

Price:  $43.89
Product Description
Sharp AL-1661CS Toner Cartridge -6000Pages (Sharp AL1661CS Toner
This Toner is designed for Use in any of the Following Printers:

AL-1661, AL-1661CS

This Toner Cartridge prints 6000 pages with an average 5% page coverage. The amount of pages can vary depending upon the amount of ink printed onto each page. (5% page coverage is a standard Sharp specification)

This product comes with a 6 month Warranty against any defects (including free replacement). We stand behind our products 100%, as these are not manufactured by Sharp.

Why toner? Why not call it ink? Regular ink dries quickly, which is why cartridges for inkjet printers do not last long. Laser Printers use toner, which is ink in the form of powder. A sealed toner cartridge can be stored for 2+ years prior to usage.

Product Manuals
Sharp AL-1661CS TD (Toner/Developer) Cartridge Replacement

When a TONER IS LOW message appears on the Sharp AL-1661CS’s LCD screen, the time to change the cartridge is drawing near. Copies made with the machine will grow lighter and eventually a REPLACE THE TONER CARTRIDGE message will appear, at which point the cartridge will have to be replaced with a new one.

The order of opening the machine is as follows: bypass tray, side cover, front cover. If this order is altered the machine will not be able to open properly and damage may occur. The side cover can be opened via a small release button.

To remove the old toner cartridge, locate the lock release button on the end of the unit and press it. This will allow it to be pulled free of the machine and recycled. The used cartridge, though mostly empty, should never be tilted or jolted because it may still have a small amount of toner in it.

NOTE: Upon initial setup of the copy machine, a new toner cartridge must be installed.

Installing a new toner cartridge can only be done after the cartridge has been properly prepared for use. Unwrap the new cartridge from its bag and give it several good shakes from side to side to distribute the internal toner, then remove the protective cover found on the side of the cartridge.

Inserting the cartridge can be done by aligning it with the grooves in the machine and sliding it in as far as it will go, then pressing the lock release button and securing it inside the machine. With the cartridge in place, close the front cover, side cover, and bypass tray if necessary IN THAT ORDER. If the machine is off, flip the on switch and any warning messages should be gone.

Sharp AL-1661CS - Sending a Fax

To send a basic, original fax, be sure that there is not a current original on the document glass or a copy project in process. Adjust the guides on the automatic document feeder to match the width of the originals you will be faxing. Place the material FACE UP in the feeder with the top edge of the originals entering FIRST.

At this point, outgoing material can be scanned into the device’s memory and then sent, or it can simply be sent directly without committing to memory by pressing the MEMORY key.

Originals can also be sent one at a time by using the device’s document glass. First, make sure that there is no material in the document feeder. Place the original material on the document glass FACE DOWN and line up the center of the page with the arrow mark. Close the cover carefully.

NOTE: When faxing, document on the glass DO NOT get pushed to the upper right corner of the glass but instead are centered. It is possible to fax a copy of a three dimensional object by using the glass, but be careful to not force the cover down onto it.

Make adjustments as necessary to the size, resolution, and contrast settings, then dial the outgoing fax number. Press the START button. If you wish to send more than one page of material, rifle in the next page and press START again. When all pages have been scanned, press the # key to begin transmission.

When do I Replace a Toner Cartridge in the Sharp AL-1661CS Digital Laser Printer?
The Sharp AL-1661CS Digital Laser Printer is equipped with a built-in system, which is constantly monitoring the toner levels of the toner cartridge. When the toner level becomes too low, the following message ``TONER IS LOW`` will appear on the AL-1661CS` display and the error indicator will light up. You must replace the exhausted toner cartridge, because the printing quality will be gradually reduced. Once the toner cartridge is completely out of toner, you will see the following message ``REPLACE THE TONER CARTRIDGE`` on the display and the error indicator will be blinking. Please note, that all printing operations will be disabled/blocked in this situation.

Sharp AL-1661CS Review


Originally priced at $799, the Sharp AL-1661CS has fallen significantly from its status as a top of the line copy machine since its 2005 release date. The unit, though now available in refurbished form for bargain basement prices, is still too flimsy and sluggish to be worth considering for anything other than as a large paper weight.


While the Sharp AL-1661CS is capable of printing, copying, scanning, and faxing, it does all of its functions at a sub par level. The only of these functions that is operational at an acceptable level is the unit’s scan features, which can be done is notably good quality as well as full color.

The Sharp AL-1661CS is equipped with a built in automatic document feeder that is pretty much the crown jewel of this piece of hardware. It is especially unique in that it can not only load 30 pages of copy or scan material automatically but is capable of reversing as well. With a RADF, both sides of input material can be scanned by the machine without user intervention and, with the aid of the built in duplex print capabilities, double sided output can be fully automated as well. Utilizing the RADF in unison with the duplex print feature can make double sided paper handling truly practical, and thus reduce paper usage and costs by virtually half.

Other paper handling comes in the form of a 250 sheet Letter and Legal sized paper tray and a 50 sheet bypass tray that is suited to handle envelopes, card stock, and other special media types. The unit’s print resolution tops out at 600 x 600 dots per inch, which is, theoretically, an acceptable resolution for black and white text, though the Sharp AL-1661CS has proven to underperform other devices on quality performance lab tests.


Even upon the Sharp AL-1661CS’s release, its incredibly slow print speed of 11.8 pages per minute was already the slowest on the market, and by a full 3 pages per minute. Graphic printing was also the slowest in the multifunctional printer category and was tested at 5.2 pages per minute. This, remember, was in 2005. If the printer was already well behind the curve back then, you can imagine how it compares to the high powered, affordable laser printers seen today.

The Sharp AL-1661CS offers ridiculous specifications, such as its 18 number storage space for speed dials. In a market where self respecting fax machines hold thousands of fax numbers, 18 is laughable. Its text quality was and is low in comparison to other units as well, both when it was released and now.

As if poor specifications weren’t enough, this clunker is loud. The unit operates at a higher decibel rate than is normally seen in a laser printer; effectively eliminating one of the major perks of owning a laser device instead of an inkjet. Its only respectable function, scanning, is as slow as one would expect on this ill performing model, scanning 4 x 5 photographs in a full minute.
