Copier won't print after refilling toner cartridge
I refilled the cartridge w/ toner as per directions on toner refill CD.
The machine sounds like it is about to print, then recycles many times and finally the low toner light appears and machine stops.
Is there anyway to let the machine know that the toner is full again?

Re: copier won't print after refilling toner cartridge
As far as I know, filling up with toner is not enough. There is an electronic chip that must also be replaced, so the toner cartridge tells the unit it is a new one. Check with your supplier for such chip.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I would not advise you to refill a toner cartridge becausethe toner powder is very fine and you do not want to breath in this tonerpowder.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 model printer.A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.

You don't. I own and operate a printer cartridge refilling shop and we don't offer refills for new Brother color lasers becuase there is not a quality toner available, even to us! Besides that hindrance, the way Brother cartridges work they need (should) be cleaned of used toner before refilling. These cartridges "recycle" their waste toner which can degrade print quality if not removed. It is possible to vacuum the toner, but keep in mind it can be explosive when aerosolized. If you do choose to vacuum at home be sure your vacuum has HEPA filtration BEFORE THE MOTOR. The spark from the brushes in the motor can ignite the toner.
Shop for the appropriate refill kit. When purchasing a refill kit, double-check to be sure that the toner in the kit is compatible with the toner required for your model of Konica Minolta printer.
Empty the old printer cartridge. Be sure to completely empty the printer cartridge that you plan to refill. A compressed air can is ideal for this purpose and can be purchased online or at most office supply stores.
Remove the plug. The cartridge plug may be covered by a colored end plate, depending upon the model of your Konica Minolta printer. Simply unscrew the end plate, and then remove the plug. If using a screwdriver to remove the plug, be careful not to puncture the plug, as this will cause the toner to leak out of the cartridge and into your printer.
Refill the printer cartridge. Shaking the powder in the refill toner bottle before attempting to pour it into the cartridge will cause it to pour much more easily. Do not squeeze the bottle, but allow the toner to simply pour out. Replug the cartridge, and gently shake or rock it back and forth two or three times to evenly distribute the toner powder inside the cartridge.
Check for leaks. Before returning the cartridge to the printer, check the outside of the cartridge for any powder particles that may have spilled or leaked during the refill process. Wipe the particles off the cartridge, and gently shake it once more to check again for leaks. If no powder particles appear, then it should be safe to return the cartridge to the printer.
Return the cartridge to the printer. Once you have refilled the printer cartridge and have checked for leaks, you may now return it to the printer. Go to your printer properties/settings and select the option to indicate that a new printer cartridge has been installed. Print a sample page to check print quality

The Canon Faxphone L80 takes a Canon FX3 cartridge. To get the highest quality refill I would first see if there is a Cartridge World store in your area. Cartridge World stores refill most cartridges in house with American made parts. Then try Office Depot. Office Depot is the only big box store that actually "remanufactures" toner cartridges. I would not recommend cheap refills or refill kits from the internet. Many use very low quality toner that wears on parts leading to print defects or they reuse parts that already generate print defects. DO NOT buy a "compatible" cartridge, these are not refills. They are new cartridge replicas and have no recycled components.
Yeah you can refill your cartridge. It is really easy and consists of removing the plug on the side of the cartridge, dumping out any old toner and dumping in the new toner. Its very easy. I have purchased refill kits from both of these sites in the past and its worked great:
They also have great customer service. I hope this helps!
dis is quite common problem..don't panic.. did u change / replace the cartridge with original spare or refilled it?? this kind of problem often follows with an unbranded cartridge change and or refilling..!! least chance of the defective cartridge itself causing such problem..!! however always try to use genuine refill packs/toner.. ..contact ur system admin/vendor....
