Product Description
Sharp AL-2050CS Toner Cartridge -6000Pages (Sharp AL2050CS Toner

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-2050CS Replacing a TD (Toner/Developer) Cartridge

The TD cartridge required to operate the Sharp AL-2050CS will need replacement every so often. The machine will recognize when the cartridge is running low on toner and alert the use with a TD CARTRIDGE IS NEAR EMPTY message. After this message appears, the cartridge will produce dimmer and dimmer material and eventually the machine will display a REPLACE THE TD CARTRIDGE message. It is sometimes possible to coax a small amount of additional life out of a cartridge by removing it from the machine and shaking it from side to side, but if this method is unsuccessful, a new cartridge will need to be installed.

Begin installation by opening the bypass tray to allow access to the side panel. A small button on this panel can be pushed to unlock it and allow it to be opened. Once open, the front panel must be opened as well by pushing in on its sides.

Behind the front panel, the old toner cartridge will be seen. To remove it, press the lock release button on top of the cartridge and pull it free of the machine. It is still possible for the cartridge to leak toner in this condition so it must be handled carefully and, preferably, recycled properly.

New TD cartridges must be shaken horizontally a few times before installation and have their protective covers removed. Never touch the area underneath the protective cover. Install the new cartridge by sliding it along the guides into the machine and lock it in place by pressing the release button.

Once the cartridge is in place, the front cover can be closed, followed by the side cover and the bypass tray if necessary. Any warning messages on the LCD should automatically disappear and the machine will then become operable.

Sharp AL-2050CS Review


Equipped with not one but two 250 sheet paper storage trays as well as a 50 sheet bypass tray, the Sharp AL-2050CS is a desktop copy machine that is well equipped in the area of paper handling. Its jumbo sized 50 page automatic document feeder furthers the high volume trend, but its low print and copy speeds reduce the unit’s overall effectiveness in a business setting.


With 550 sheets worth of paper storage space, the Sharp AL-2050CS is at the high end of the paper handling spectrum. Another one of the this printers welcome surprises is its built in Ethernet capabilities. While its sluggish print speeds prevent the device from being a truly effective shared printer in an office setting, the network connectivity is perfect for a home setting. A high speed USB port is also a welcome inclusion considering that the previous models in the AL line were equipped with USB 1.1 ports.

The device is equipped with 30 MBs of RAM memory that is, unfortunately, non expandable, though it does do the trick for this particular model. On board memory also allows functions such as continuous copy to be active and, in this case, up to 99 copies can be made from one scan of an original.

Additional improvements found on the Sharp AL-2050CS over its predecessors in the Sharp AL series can be seen in the unit’s control panel. There are now more preset function buttons and the unit is programmable in more ways. Its LCD screen is also alpha numeric, allowing the machine to communicate better with users.


While it is expected that a unit with dual paper trays will be a little on the heftier side, 51 pounds is pushing it for a desktop machine. Its solid footprint of 20.4 x 17.6 inches is also a little overbearing for a personal workspace, placing the Sharp AL-2050CS in a strange area between a floor standing copy machine and a personal printer.

As an older model, the Sharp AL-2050CS operates on a 10BaseT network speed. It can, therefore, not be connected to any hub that is not capable of downshifting to this slower setting. Sharp also forces the printer to rely on its own SPLC emulation instead of the more common PCL or PostScript types. This can result in performance problems when dealing with printing PDFs and some other types of complex imagery.

The copy and print speeds found at the Sharp AL-2050CS’s maximum settings are 20 copies per minute and only 16 pages per minute for prints. This places the unit well in the washed up category when it comes to raw performance. While the device is obviously well equipped to handle a variety of tasks, it unfortunately is reduced to executing them as sub standard speeds. Its first page out speeds rest at a 8 seconds when the machine is warmed up (an acceptable rate) and up to 25 seconds when the machine needs to be heated. Unless this unit is intended to be left on constantly, users will be frustrated by the long warm up times.
