    thanks for the your reply.
    While waiting for an answer I was looking around for the answer and I found 3 post where people say that in this printer I don't need to change the developer since it is included in the drum (someone says in the toner) unit and so when I change the drum I change the developer too...

    ...I'm confused!
    I changed the drum a month ago and I didn't reset any counter.
    Should I just reset the counter? (Which? How???)

You take the drum out, then unscrew the developer (it should be a greenish screw), it should slide out, empty the developer out, take bag of new developer shake it up real good... then pour evenly into developer unit, while turning the mag roller... reinstall..

    This machine, the Developer is apart of the Toner Cartridge... (I apologize; I didn’t realize this model toner came with the developer attached)

    This is a link to the Operator manual, look at the Maintenance section. It gives instructions how to change and reset the maintenance counters..

    ( If this link doesn’t work, go to and search in the Business copiers section)

Installer of sharp AR-5316

Remove the screws marked and all tapes around the copier, open the tray and remove the screw supporting it. Open the front cover and unscrew the green screw holding developer unit and pullout the unit. Open the 3 screws and pour the developer evenly and return it back. Remove the seals on the toner cartridge and insert it. Power on the copier and make a copy.

Developer sign

The developer doesn't need to be reset on AR series machines. Toner and developer are in one cartridge. There is a drum reset. That is service code 24-07.

Did you replace the drum as well?

Add developer in sharp AR-5316

That model uses a TD cartridge so when you replace the toner the developer is included. The crum chip on the TD cartridge will reset the counters and sets the developer.
