Re: printer not recognizing toner

Take some fine emery paper to the contact pins inside the printer (the ones that touch against the copper stripo on the side of the toner cartridges … i also emery the copper contact strip … worked fine after that (and after weeks of wasted time on trying all sorts of other solutions)

Re: printer not recognizing toner

Too much people confuse CLP-500 cartridges with CLP-510. Although they look the same and even fit inside the printer, the internal chip is not the same.

After I have installed a new toner cartridge and printer is still asking me to install toner. What am I doing now?

if it is an oem cartridge you got a bad one. if it is a generic one the chip inside the toner cart is not the right one. in either case you need to return it and get a new one.

Just replaced toner K and now says empty

You replaced the Cartridge with a OEM product or third party or a refill. if the last the electronic chip on the toner cart is still telling the machine the cartridge is old so refilling will never work replace the cart with OEM cart,

Just changed the cartridge in our HP1320 Laserjet (genuine HP cart) but the print quality is now much fainter than normal. Still on ProRes1200 setting as before. Any ideas?

If your toner cartridge is not OEM (HP), this is the most common reason. I have personally seen 2 out of 3 remanufactured HP toner cartridges fail right out of their sealed boxes. Don't be fooled by lower costs, test prove most remanu'ed cart's don't give you page yield to justify their lower cost.

Hp 2605dn Black cartridge is printing 1/8" LEFT of other colors.

That problem is frequently on HP 2600 series.
You must try to change all remanufactured toner cartridges with HP OEM with no exception, the best alignment it is when you change the black cartridge and the printer make a cleaning page process. Cartridge HP OEM should be almoust empty. It Is not necesarry to be a new one. After the alignment process, you can put the remanufacturated cartridges back on.
This was work for me. 100%

Yellow toner not being recognized with new toner installed

Probably dirty contacts on side of cart. Also if you take out drum and cart unit together, clean copper contacts with alcohol and cotton bud, also make sure in machine where they contact is clean

Ricoh CL7100 - Toner Cartridge Error

Not one answer for this problem. It could be the tube going from toner cart to developer unit is clogged or kinked. It could be the dev unit. Get a toner vac and remove toner and black cap and spring and using the round hose end create seal and vac the tube. The part that goes into the toner cart has hole on the very end, it might have broke off (look at another color to verify). The worst case is the toner attraction pump has failed. One fix is shake the toner and reinstall.

Hi my brother MFC 7420 will not recognize the new toner i just added...........i hve done this multiple times before........not sure now why not working.........are the printer gods against me today??

all brother printers and mfc products. if you are using generic tonere or refills, brother products will not recognize the toner cartridge as the refillers do not know how to reset the toner cart. this is priority info. therefor u must use brother oem service rep

Brother 5240 laser printer changed toner still wont work.

This works on several different Brother Printers to get rid of toner/drum empty errors:

1. Open the front cover and leave open while completing the following steps.
2. Turn the printer off.
3. Hold the 'go' button while turning the printer on. All panel lights should be on.
4. Release the 'go' button.
5. Press the 'go' button 2 times.
6. Pause.
7. Press the 'go' button 5 times.
8. The toner light should be off.
9. The paper light should be on or flashing [doesn't happen on all].
10. Close cover. The ready light should be the only light on.
