Question about Lexmark E120n Laser Printer

1 Answer

E120 won't print. Orange toner light is on - but the toner is nearly new ...

... tried rebooting ... tried removing & shaking the cartridge ... resolutely refuses to print from the PC. Lights on are:
Ready/data (green steady) and
Toner Low (orange steady).

It prints the test page perfectly when press the Continue button.

The problem arose after an episode of paper jam. We seem to have cleared out all the jam ... but since we've had the above problem.

Grateful any help, Sachlan

This problem is caused by an imitated toner............ All you need to do is change it to the old cartridge and see if the light will not be stable. Well the solution i guess is simple............. just go to get a new original toner and it should work well. Hope this helps.

How do I know which toner is empty on samsung clp315

  • 1.Log on to your computer and print a test page to the printer. Click on the "Start" button, choose "Control Panel" and then "Printers and Faxes." Right-click on the laser printer, choose "Properties" from the drop-down menu and click the "Print test page" box.

  • 2.Look at the quality of the print on the finished page. If the print is light or faded, the ink cartridge is probably empty or at least empty enough that it should be replaced. You can try to get some extra life out of your toner cartridge by taking it out of the printer, shaking it vigorously and putting it back in. Under normal printing loads, this can give you one to three days of additional printing capacity.

  • 3.Open the printer cover and carefully pull out the toner cartridge. Set the cartridge aside while you open the box containing the new toner. Pull the new toner out but do not yet remove any of the packaging materials. Compare the weight of the new toner with the old one. If the old toner is very light, it is nearly empty and should be replaced.

    I have a problem in my oki b2200 printer.he does not print.when i was print page then one errer show."your toner empty.and other side printer give us beep orange light

    When the toner cartridge is exhausted or empty then theprinter will not be able to print further documents or the prints will be veryfaint. You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer. This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter. A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.

    Does not print. Nothing showing in print queue. Green and orange light on. Have taken toner cartridge out and given it a shake put it back in again. Still won't print.

    Check to make sure that there is not a paper jam. Also, try rebooting the computer. If this still does not work, uninstall the printer from the computer and try re-installing it using the provided cd or download the drivers from their web site.

    The toner may be low or nearly run out. Remove the toner cartridge and give it a shake in a horizontal position, then replace the toner cartridge in the printer. This may give you a few more prints.
    If not you need to replace the toner cartridge with a new Canon toner cartridge, or purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your model laser printer. These re-manufactured laser cartridges are approx. half the cost of a new toner cartridge.

    The orange light is blinking. Above the light is a triange with an exclamation point in it. I have tried deleting and reloading the printer and that doesnt work.

    Do you have a new toner cartridge loaded? The red/orange light will blink when toner is low, even if everything else is working fine. Try printing out a test sheet and see what that tells you about your toner level. (Test sheep prints by holding the orange button down a second or two and releasing.)

    Since I'm mainly printing drafts for my own use, I've just let the light blink while I eke out whatever I can from the remaining toner (occassionally removing the cartridge and shaking it -- being careful of clothes and surroundings -- to re-distribute the toner on the inside.

    Imaging unit

    The Imaging unit may be at end of life.

    This is the drum unit and collects the waste toner.
    Whilst you can just reset the drum counter (see user guide for this E120, it can lead to problems if you don;t replace the drum unit. I've seen E120 drum units packed full of waste toner, to the stage where they won't take any more, and it just spews all over the mechanism. It's a very small waste collector (but its also a very small printer, and relatively low capacity toner cartridges (1k, or 2k).

    Remanufactured drum units for E120 can be found on the usual internet auction sites.

    The green flashing light lets you know that the machine is recieving data. This is completely normal, however, the red (Attention) light can mean several things. There can be a door open, missing toner cartridge, out of paper, or paper jam. In this cause it is probably the toner cartridge. Typically on these machines there is an Orange or Green tab on the side of the toner cartridge that needs to be pulled to fully engage the cartridge. You may want to make sure this has been pulled and the cartridge has been properly seated.

    Hope this helps...let me know if you need any further assistance
