Sharp AL-1000 / Xerox XD-100 Toner Cartridges
Sharp Cart. # AL-100TD, Xerox Cart. # 6R914
OEM Stated Yield: 6,000
The standard AL-100TD, and 6R914 cartridges are not interchangeable. They have Oblong tabs on the backside of the cartridges that are in different locations. These tabs block the use of one brand in the others machine. They can be made to be interchangeable by cutting off the tabs, and sealing up the hole. See our cartridge recycling instructions for detailed information. These cartridges also do not have any type of reset. There is a sensor inside the cartridge that measures the mixture of toner to developer. As long as there is enough toner for a good mixture level, the toner lamp will stay off. There are no page counters or "Killer Chips" for these cartridges.
There are other versions of these cartridges however that do have "Killer Chips". The following are the current Sharp AL-1000 Engine based cartridges that also have the chips in them.
Sharp AL-1000 / Xerox XD-100 OPC Cartridges
Sharp Cart. # AL-100DR, Xerox cart. # 13R551
OEM Stated Yield: 18,000
Both of the above cartridges are different, and not interchangeable but the reset procedures are the same. (These procedures are the same for the XC-800/Z-835 copier OPC cartridges). These cartridges are the most popular. There are also other cartridges that use the same supplies, but are physically different. There are tabs on the top of the cartridge that block installation into another brand copier. These tabs are different for each cartridge type.
If the cartridge is not a "Starter cartridge", there are two white gears inside the green end cap. On the large white gear, remove the clip ring and turn the gear back to the start position. (This is so the actuator (or flag) is next to the small gear). On some cartridges the "flag gear" is now black. It is located to the bottom right of the white gear. Make sure that when you snap the green end cap back on, the notch on the small gear lines up with the tab on the large single gear that is on the cartridge. Once everything lines up, snap the end cap in place. This is tricky, take your time!
To reset the starter cartridge, or any cartridge through the menu, do the following:
Enter the diagnostics menu by turning the machine on, and within 4 seconds, press "CLEAR", "EXPOSURE MODE", "CLEAR", "EXPOSURE MODE". (EXPOSURE MODE is the button on the far left). All of the display will go blank. Using the 10 and 1 buttons (copy quantity), enter "24" press "PRINT", enter "7" press "PRINT" again. The counter is now set to Zero!
