Why does my Canon faxphone L75 won't print and says needs new cartridge when cartridge is still good.

Some possibilities: Perhaps your cartridge isn't seated properly in the printer? Try taking it out again and restarting printer. Or, you could have a defective cartridge. Test with another cartridge.

Out of Toner / Change Toner - Canon image CLASS MF4370dn

The percentage-of-available-toner is based on calculations made by the printer's internal software -- quite different from putting a measuring-stick into an above-ground oil-tank to determine the ACTUAL level.

So, while the calculations say "zero percent left", there still is some toner inside the toner-cartridge, and so it still prints.

Buy a replacement cartridge. When you finally do run-out of toner, install the new cartridge.

Compare it to buying a new quart of milk, and then using the last 1/8 of the quart of the milk currently inside your refrigerator -- use the "old" milk until it is 100% gone, and then switch to the "new" milk.

Canon PC-1080F says replace cartridge. i replaced

Make sure the electrical contacts where the cartridge fits into the machine aren't bent or dirty. If necessary gently pry them out a bit to make sure they have good contact.

Putting in the ink cartridge

It is a little hard for words to be easier to follow than pictures, but I will try to help. The connection is not as "concrete" as you might be accustomed to with other equipment, a there is not a box-like holder to place the cartridge in. Below, the "head" of the cartridge is the end with the ink openings.

When you lift the printer cover and it locks into place, the cartridge holder will move to the far left side of the printer. The cartridge fits into the right side of the cartridge holder, and what you probably see in the diagram as a holder is actually a depiction of where the cartridge will end up when it is properly positioned. It actually attaches at the back - along the back side (the head) for the ink nozzles, and at the top of the back to a small piece that juts out and has a V-like projection downward that snaps onto the cartridge and holds it in place.

When you have taken the tape off, hold the cartridge with the head tilted slightlty upward, at about a 20 degree angle. (Be careful NOT to put the cartridge in with the head downward.) Using your left hand, your thumb would be just under the front outer edge (facing you), and your index finger on top. Slide it in slowly on the right side of the holder until the head comes in contact with the strip for the nozzles. At this point, the top should also be contacting the top piece referred to above, just behind the V-like downward projection.

Move your index finger to the top of the machine just above the back of the cartridge area, and use your thumb to lift the front (the side facing you) up until it clicks. You should feel/hear it snap into place. Then you can proceed to close the cover and go on with your use/setup of the machine. Hopefully this explanation will help you enough to be able to understand how to get the cartridge in, especially with the pictures to supplement.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Flashing alarm and 'put in cartridge' Canon woe's

Hi, I tried hitting the stop button (well I pressed it, even though I felt like hitting it)
Nothing happened.
Using genuine cartridges, haven't tried a re-fill, tape is removed
Canon say the cartridge holder may be at fault but printer has barely had any use (do they die of old age?)
It just keeps flashing at me and message is 'put in cartridge'
