Gavinsx is correct, Frcs68 is definetly wrong.. if it is the chip which sometimes it is.. you can replace it. that is the only thing you can relpace on the toner cartridge. another thing that you can possibly try is clean the contacts of the chip both inside the machine as well as the toner cartridge. a real quick gentle blast of air and a wipe with a lint free cloth helps sometimes.

Hi Marc-c,
There is unfortunately no way of repairing the chip.
I assume that the cartridge has been re-filled and was run until empty.
The only possible solution is for you to purchase a new cartridge and then monitor the toner supply (press and hold in the light exposure key for 5 to 10 seconds, the copy quantity display will change to "--"and the red lights on the panel will flash. then press and hold in the zoom % key again for about 5-10 seconds the display will then show the approximate toner percentage remaining. When this display then shows "LO" remove that cartridge, and detach the chip at the back of the container (2 screws) replace this chip onto the cartridge that you are now struggling with and continue copying.
NB. to get out of the toner % display just press the light exposure key again.This programme that I have explained is known as the "User Settings" programme and you can change the default settings of the machine including the auditing mode in this section.

No you can't repair the toner cartiridge or any of the toner cartridge (I have try, believe me, it don't work). the new toner cartridge is around $40 to $70.

My konica minolta 130 f is asking me to replace toner. I have opened it, refilled but is still asking me to replace toner

what you need to do is to change the toner cartridge. Refilling will not reset the toner IC inside the cartridge so by so doing, no notable change is witnessed.

Having a problem with new toner in a HP6L laser printer

If the problem was not there before you replaced the cartridge then I suggest that the toner cartridge is at fault. If you touch the blue drum in the toner cartridge ( under the flap ) with your fingers then that can also cause a smear.

Need Override for Low Toner Message Minolta QMS 2300

It depends on the model. The 2300 series using a mechanical mirror on the cartridge itself. A tab needs to be moved the mirror slid back to home. The 2400 series & newer uses an IC that you need to replace. when you buy your toner to refill the cartridge make sure you get the IC with it. Russell
