Got error message "used toner overflow" - A generous fellow going by the name of Black Cat told me what to do at another forum that I can't find now. I did it and the error disappeared.
However, the copies now are:
1 almost totally black 2 the left half of an 8+1/2'' page copied: the image copied is barely visible under the darkness of too much toner, which at the far left is only a dark gray which progressively turns to black as it goes to the right so that the total (more of less) right half of the page is completely black. 3 vertically streaked varying width "bands" to "lines of black", gray and white
This copier is about ten years old, but only has about 6000 copies on it. In fact I am only on the third toner cartridge since I bought it.
Any help or guidance that anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.

I suggest removing the toner, and visually inspecting it, make sure the sealing tab has been removed, give it a really good shake, as the toner may have settled in storage. re-insert the cartridge making sure it goes in the right way.
If you can hear a slight 'clicking' noise it's adding toner and pumping it into the developer unit, some machines take 2 minutes, some take 6..
Failing that, lift the platen cover and do a few black copies, so you force the machine to add toner.
remove the toner bottle, open the back cover and look for the small DIP Switch turn on and off, by doing this you are forcing the machine to come out from add toner condition. Then you do 20 sky shoot.
