Usually, the printer must move the cartridge to a suitable location (not parked) before the cartridges can be removed.

Clarify your model, and someone might be able to suggest what button combination or software command needs to be issued.

Konica Minolta 2490mf . Have just put in compatible toner catrdges and printer is telling me YMCK toner incorrect can you help many thanks Steve


Perhaps clean the connections between the toner-chips and the printer.
As the are lokated below the toner cartridges in your printer the tend to get dirty
and cleaning them can make the difference...
If this does not help, try the old cartridges and see what message you get.
If that is a different one your cartridges doesn't match your printer and you should get replace ones.

I have a Brother HL1240 printer. When I print I get toner stains on the left margin. Is this a cartridge problem or is it the printer itself? I guess I'm wondering if I change the toner cartridge...


in most case this kind of issues arise if your drum is not cleaned properly with the wiper. As the printer becomes old, the wiper that cleans the drum might get reduced in size...
so it has to be checked at the first.

16 toner low


A laser printer needs toner to print, when this runs out the printer will print either blank or very faint images.
You need to replace the toner cartridge with a new one or a re-manufactured toner cartridges. Re-manufactured toner cartridges are cheaper than new toner cartridges for your model printer.

You can get a few more prints out of your toner cartridge by removing the toner cartridge from the printer and giving it a few horizontal shakes then place it back into the printer.

How do i change the toner on m my HL 2040 brother printer


How to Change a Toner Cart in a Brother HL 2040

The Brother HL 2040 laser printer has a toner cartridge that supplies toner to the drum assembly so that the printer can print properly. When the LED on the front of the printer indicates you are low on toner, you will need to replace the toner cartridge to maintain good print quality. Fortunately, the toner cartridge can be replaced without any special tools.

Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Replacement toner cartridge (part number TN350 or TN360)
* Paper towel or scrap paper



Grasp the front cover of the printer and pull it toward you to open the toner door. Reach into the printer and grab the combined toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the front of the printer.

Place the cartridge and drum on a paper towel, spare sheet of paper, rag or other surface that can get dirty. Loose toner particles may spill from the cartridge.

Press the blue locking lever on the cartridge/drum unit to unlock the toner cartridge from the drum. Lift the toner cartridge up and away from the drum unit. Dispose of the old toner cartridge in accordance with your local regulations. Seal it in a plastic bag to keep loose toner from spilling.



Gently shake your new toner cartridge back and forth a few times to distribute the toner evenly across the width of the cartridge. Remove the plastic protective cover from the bottom of the cartridge.


Place the new toner cartridge onto the drum unit and press it down gently until it locks into place. The blue locking lever will automatically click into place. Verify that the toner cartridge is securely connected to the drum.


Locate the corona wire cleaner tab at the front of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth several times to improve the print quality of the drum. Set the tab back in the home position when finished.


Slide the combined toner cartridge/drum unit back into the printer and close the front cover.


Hope it helps...

Do you get a new drum with a toner replacement cartidge or is it a separate thing you have to buy


Hello.

The drum and toner cartridge are separate items. Both are replaced by the user.

The toner cartridge holds toner/ink. The drum does the work. You will need to replace the drum for every 4-5 toner cartridges used.

I've seen toner cartridges for your printer at $36 vs $60 for a drum.

Hope this helps.

Unable to remove black cartridge, it is really stuck. Help


I just changed my black toner this past week, and finally figured out why the cartridges get stuck like this.

First, you must eject the toner cartridge on the front-panel menu:
Menu->Replace Toner->Eject Toner->Black(K)

It will say "Rotating to Black Toner(K)" and then say "Black Toner(K) Ready to Eject"

Now, open the front panel and you'll see the black toner cartridge in front. You can also open the top panel if you want more light on your work area.

Lift the lock handle on the old toner cartridge to the "unlock" position, and here's the part that the Dell instructions don't have:

There are two channels for the toner cartridges -- one on each side. Run your finger down the channel on the right, and you'll feel a small, spring-loaded catch. This catch often gets sticky and won't release the cartridge without some help. Don't force it, but gently move it towards the back of the printer and it should release.

Now the old cartrdige should slide right out, and you can finish per the instructions that came with the new cartridge.

How to change toner


hi friend,
How to Change a Toner Cartridge You may need to change a toner cartridge when:
  • Your printer tells you toner is out (low toner usually means you can print a few hundred more pages without a problem)
  • The pages coming out of the printer look faded or washed out
  • The pages have a repeating defect of some kind
Users are able to and expected to be able to change toner in black and white printers. (Color printers are more difficult so if you are unsure of how to change color toner call the helpdesk and we will assist you.)
  1. First thing you will need to know is what model of printer you have.

    This will be written on the printer somewhere, there are 2 names that you will likely find on the printer, one is our name for the printer (i.e. ucrit01) the other is the model name (i.e. HP LaserJet 5m). You will need the model name.
  2. Take the model name to the central stores.

    They will be able to tell you which replacement toner cartridge to use. (If there is a problem identifying which replacement to use call the helpdesk.)
  3. Give them your cost center number and they will let you have the replacement toner cartridge that you need.
  4. Take the new cartridge back to the printer and remove the new toner cartridge from the box.
  5. Power the printer off.
  6. Open the top cover on the printer.
  7. Remove the old toner by pulling up and away from the printer. (It should come out with only a small amount of force)
  8. Remove the new toner from its bag, remove the rip strip from the cartridge. This is a small tab on the side of the cartridge that is attached to a plastic film strip. If you do not remove this strip the printer will only print blank sheets. Take care to avoid getting the toner on you when you rip off the strip. Spilled toner is best cleaned up with a dry cloth. If you spill any toner on yourself you can wash it off with COLD water (no hot water as it can cause the toner to set).
  9. Place the new cartridge into the printer the same way the old unit came out (there may be arrows or other cues to help you align the cartridge correctly.)

    It should slide in with minimal force. If it does not slide in easily, make sure you have the cartridge aligned correctly and that you are using the correct cartridge (i.e. 4000 series cartridge is not compatible with the 4100 series printer, you must use 4100 series cartridge).
  10. Once you have the cartridge seated all they way in place, close the top cover.
  11. Power the printer back on.
  12. Print a few test pages
    • If the printouts look good:
      You are just about done, package the old toner cartridge in the box the new toner came in and give it to the mailroom. We get a credit for the old cartridges. Now you are finished.
    • If there is a problem with the test pages:
      Our cartridges are refurbished and sometimes the cartridges can be defective. If you see streaks, repeated defects, faded out pages or other defects that did not exist before you changed, toner it may be because of a problem with the toner cartridge.

      Try getting another new cartridge, installing that cartridge, and printing some test pages. If the printouts are clean, then the first cartridge is a defect, return it to the mailroom for credit.

      If both new toner cartridges seem to have problems call the computer helpdesk. There is likely something wrong with the printer.
Please Note: Toner cartridges are light sensitive if you are going to leave them out of the box or printer for more than a few minutes please cover them to prevent damage
hope this helps u
please rate me........................
thank u for using fixya
regards

Toner is not out of ink but it lights up, refusing to print


In most cases cartridges have a special chip that remembers the toner cartridge serial number an amount of pages printed from it. This means, that even though there still might be some toner left in the cartridge, the chip's counter reaches it's predefined limit and informs printer, that the toner has run out. Just like that, suddenly.
It may also be the case, that the chip loses contact with the printer's electrical terminals - try reseating the cartridge in the printer. If that doesn't help, it's time to replace it I'm afraid.
Usually the printer will inform "toner low" for some time before it becomes "toner out" and refuses to print. If you get "toner low", then it's time to purchase a new cartridge to have it ready.
