Toner drive won't turn new toner cartridge

I have tried two new high capacity toner cartridges and the drive won't turn them. It clicks and I believe it is designed to slip and click instead of burning out the motor. The gears don' t appear to be stripped. Are the high capacity cartridges harder to turn than the lower capacity ones with less ink? The machine cycles thru without a problem without a cartridge installed. I had no problem with the OEM low capacity cartridge. Thank you.

I was able to find and repair the problem. A shaft with shoulders fits into a thimble which engages and drives the cartridge. The shoulders wore away or were defective. The clicking I heard was the shoulders trying to engage the thimble. I had to purchase a frame L drive unit which is expensive and deep in the machine. It was beyond my expertise but I can only say I was lucky and everything went back together without too many left over screws and it works well. I was able to get the service manual but even with that the repair was sketchy. I had to buy quite a large part in order to replace that small defective part. Compared with the cost of a comparable replacement machine the repair was worth it though.

The TN-570's work equally well as the 540's so that's not the problem.  The ink is incredibly fluid in its dry powder form and wouldn't make turning with the torque ratio in the machine even notice a difference. Double check that you have the right number replacements and if refilled from an outside source I'd bet its either wrong ones or bad copies.  Best to you.

2300dl toner problems


Unfortunalely printers and there drivers estimate toner life buy counting the amount of dots draws on the pages. Say a cartridge is rated for 3000000 dots when new, the printer will know after printing 1500000 dots that the cartridge is about half full. If you replace a cartridge the printer will assume it's new as the ID tag will be different from the last cartridge. There really isn't any way of modifying or specifying the age of a cartridge. You will just have to keep using it until you start seeing drop outs on the page, then you will know it is almost empty. Shaking it a few times will usualy help stretch the life of a cartridge.

2. From the Print menu choose Toner Replace...
3. In the Color list box, select the color of the toner cartridge to be replaced (CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW, or BLACK).
4. Select the capacity of the new toner cartridge (1500 or 4500).
5. Click OK.
6. When the toner indicator on the control panel starts flashing, open the printer's front door. The carousel is automatically repositioned so that the appropriate toner cartridge can be removed.

Is there a override function to keep printing when toner alerts are on?Wondering since black still shows 30%.


These printers will still print when any or all of the toners are LOW, but if any one of them is EMPTY (according to the chip on the toner cartridge) printing stops.

Standard capacity toners ere 2000 page for the colours, and 3000 page for the black, so they can soon be used up.

Much cheaper per page printed, if you use the high capacity cartridges (6000 page for the colours, and 8000 page black).

There are high quality remanufactured cartridges available now, as good as OEM, and typically you'll get a Hi Capacity Remanufactured cartridge for the same sort of price as a Std Capacity OEM cartridge.

As a short term solution at a lower cost than replacement cartridges, you could just replace the cartridge CHIP. The printer would then think the toner was full (there'll likely to still be some toner in it), so you'll be able to print. Don't run the printer like this for ever though, as the toner has some lubricant properties, and with a TRULY EMPTY cartridge, you'll eventually do some damage to the cartridge, and then possibly the transfer belt (and you don't want to be changing that until it's rated 100,000 page life is up.
