    Same deal. SET PAPER AGAIN, SET TONER AGAIN error. People at Canon said it must be a hardware problem because they've never heard of this happening before.




  • susan234 Dec 09, 2008

    I have the exact same problem. It reads "set in toner toner is not set" I have set and reset the cartridge and even bought a new one and nothing has changed. I have plugged and unplugged but to no avail. There is nothing in the manual and this machine is not a year old....help....

I had this problems and did everything suggested on here. Installed firmware update (which just changed the error message - didn't get rid of it), removed paper, changed size, replaced paper, tried new cartridge. Nothing worked. Finally found a tiny piece of paper that must have been blocking the sensor. It was on the left side near where the power cable is. It was less than an inch square. Got it out with some tweezers and problem solved.

Thanks, PixelKix. I had the same problem, and after reading your solution, I went back and checked. Sure enough, I found a small piece of paper at the left side after removing the toner. After removing the paper, the problem was fixed.

    Thanks to all, especially crfred, for the help. I just had this problem today and it was driving me crazy. After reading these posts, I removed the cartridge and sure enough, I also found a piece of paper in the left corner. The staff member who removed the paper jam never mentioned it to me that it was ripped out, had I have known that I would have looked more closley. Any ways, problem solved and thanks again.. the internet is a truly amazing resource indeed.

    Ditto-also found a tiny piece wrapped around the end of the toner cartridge, wiped off the silver contact points on toner cartridge, used a vacuum cleaner because I couldn't get to one of the very small pieces-after using magnifying glass...could see it when it was reflected on the metal bar. Took forever....but it finally works...thanks for the advise.

I had the same problem and found the solution on Alex Luigi's blog. The sensors are fooled into thinking that the toner cartridge is not present. The solution is to take all the paper out and reload the paper. I did this and found a single sheet of paper caught up in the paper feed path. I removed that page then turned the printer off and back on. The problem was fixed!

Like most others here, found two very small pieces of paper behind the toner cartridge. The larger one was blocking the sensor allowing for the set paper again/toner again error message. The second smaller one I suspect was the cause of the paper not feeding straight all the way through and causing docs to be printed crooked on the paper as well as lots of paper jams. That had been going on for months. Thanks for helping me find the solution to two frustrating problems!

Hi - I realize these posts are old, but I had to add another tip:All I did was to open the top manual feed thing, and on the left side was a protruding, small white plastic tab. I pushed on it, and now the printer works. Still getting toner message, but paper message has gone bye-bye.

I had to post seeing i spent hours on this fax machine... after installing the new firmware, removing the paper etc i still had the same error message. I smacked the thing a few times... shook it... flipped it in all different ways in the hope the piece of paper would move out of the sensor... no such luck, finally i was just about to order a new machine i asked one of my staff to see if she could find teh stuck piece of paper, she looked and found it straight away... moral of teh story - get other ppl to find the paper because its most likely infront of you (if u remove teh toner, it should be on the left side).

If the paper light is flashing (not steady) please follow the steps bellow:

The Paper LED flashing can be caused by no paper in the manual feed slot, a paper jam, the front cover is open, the back cover is open, dust on the drum, a memory full error, a print overrun error or not having a drum installed.

Note: Be sure that a toner AND drum assembly is installed in the machinebefore continuing. A machine may exhibit a jam message if a drum or toner isn't installed or isn't installed properly. The drum is a separate part from the toner cartridge and the two parts fit together tomake the drum and toner assembly. The problem may also happen from using non-Brother supplies.

To clear the Paper LED flashing, follow the steps listed below:

Brother strongly recommends that customers use only genuine Brother drumunits and/or toner cartridges. Each Brother laser printer is designed to work at pre-set temperatures that are matched exactly to each of our individual toner formulations. Each individual component is designed to work with the other to ensure quality and reliability. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print qualityand machine reliability. The Brother limited warranty does not apply to any problem that is caused by the use of third party drum units, toner cartridges or toner.
Warning: If you just used the machine some parts inside the machine are extremely hot.

1. If the paper source setting of the program you are printing from or the Brother printer driver is set to Manual feed, the Paper LED will flash prompting you to load a sheet of paper, an envelope, or a label inthe manual feed slot of the printer. It can also be caused if the document you are trying to print was created as a letter, mailing, or label.

2. Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides on the front of the printer to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

3. Using both hands, put one piece of paper in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper touches the paper feed roller. When you feel the printer pull in the paper, let go and the printer will print the document. If the Paper LED continues to flash and the printer does not pull in the paper, this issue was not caused by a manual feed command, continue with trouble shooting.

4. Open the front cover by pulling the tabs on the left and right side of the printer towards you.

5. Remove the drum/toner assembly by lifting it up slightly at the center and pulling it out to the front. Place the drum/toner assembly ona piece of disposable paper or cloth to avoid spilling and scattering the toner.

6. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the blue tab on the top from right to left and left to right several times. Return the blue tab and snap it into the home position. If you don't, printed pages may have a vertical stripe.

7. Remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit holding down the lock lever (purple tab) on the left side of the drum unit and lift the toner cartridge out.
*Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your and or clothes, immediately wipe it off wash it with cold water.

8. If there is paper in the drum unit, gently remove it.

9. Examine the inside of the printer where the drum was installed. If there is paper inside the printer carefully remove it.

10. Reset the toner cartridge into the drum unit (be sure it clicks into place).

11. Reinstall the drum/toner assembly into the printer.

12. Close the front cover. If the Paper LED is still flashing, continue with trouble shooting.

13. Turn the Brother printer around with the back of the printer facing you.

14. If the back cover is open, close it securely. If the Paper LED is still flashing, continue with trouble shooting.

15. Open the back cover.

16. Open the black plastic inner chute by pressing on the release tab located on the right side of the chute.
Note: The inner chute has a diagram on it of a piece of paper being removed from the printer.

17. If there is paper inside the printer carefully remove it.
NOTE: If paper is wrapped around the orange roller do not try and removeit. The printer has a one year limited exchange warranty. If the printeris in warranty, call Brother Customer Service at 1-877-BROTHER (1-877-276-8437) for warranty options. If the printer is out of warranty, contact a Brother Authorized Service Center for repair by clicking on the link below:
http://www.brother-usa.com/service/default.aspx

18. Close the back cover. If the Paper LED is still flashing, continue with trouble shooting.
NOTE: The inner chute will close automatically when the back door is closed.

19. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.

20. If there is paper jammed in the paper tray or underneath the printer, gently remove it.

21. Reload the paper in the paper tray. The tray can hold up to 250 sheets of 20 lb paper. Do not over fill the tray. There is a maximum paper mark located on the top of the right and left paper guide. It looks like a V cut out in the plastic.

NOTE: If you are using special paper and the machine has problems feeding it from the paper tray, try loading the paper in the manual feed slot.

22. Put the paper tray firmly back into the printer. If the Paper LED isstill flashing, continue with trouble shooting.

23. To troubleshoot a Memory Full error, press the Go button on the printer to print the data remaining in the printer. Cancel the print jobif you want to delete the data remaining in the printer by pressing theGo button for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. The Ready and Paper LEDs will flash as the job is being cancelled. If this does not clear the error, reduce the print resolution in the Brother printer driver or reduce the complexity of your document. If the Paper LED is still flashing, continue with trouble shooting.

24. To troubleshoot a Print Overrun error, set the page protection in the Brother printer driver to AUTO. Change the following settings in theprinter driver and try again. The best XXXXXXXXXXX XX these settings will vary depending on your document:
Graphics mode
TrueType mode
Use Printer TrueType Fonts
