Showing toner error after installing NON Canon toner cartridge. Will not clear.

Yes...Duct tape works wonders. Most of these printer cartridge
have built in chips that match to the printers they were designed for. This is the manufactures way of saying "Hey, we practically gave away our printers, so now you have to pay outrageous prices for the ink"!!! Place the tape on the light and enjoy the savings ;-)

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Sir, if you have installed Color Cartridge but if you are getting the message about not finding the color cartridge then its means Color Cartridge in not installed properly.
Please follow the following steps to install the cartridge again.

1. First of all Confirm that the printer is powered on.

2. Open the card slot cover and then the front cover. The cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

3. Remove the cartridges.

Note: Handle the cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.
4. Insert the cartridge into the cartridge holder.
Note: Push up the cartridge until it clicks into place.
6. Close the front cover. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.

Now check the printer again. If you still get this error message then it means the Cartridge you installed is not exactly proper, or if you think that u got this cartridge from the reliable source and it is proper and exactly fine cartridge then the problem is in the Print Head. You need to check it again.

I hope you have a clear picture in your mind.

Don't hesitate to let me know if you have some confusion.

Sir, Your Rating for this solution as Maximum Stars and words of appreciation will be esteemed.

Thank you for taking my service.

Lexmark c534dn unsupported cartrige

This error message appears on the printer screen when the printer thinks the wrong toner cartridge is installed. To clear it or identify a service requirement, follow the steps below. NOTE: If you succeed in resolving the problem at any stage during the procedure, you not need to perform the remaining steps.
  1. Open the top front cover of the printer. If the display DOES NOT read Close cover or Insert cartridge, the 32 error is not caused by the toner cartridge and printer service will be required to fix the problem.

  2. Make sure the correct toner cartridge is installed for this printer model.
    1. Check Lexmark for a list of compatible cartridges for your printer.
    2. If the wrong toner cartridge is installed, remove it and install the correct one.
  3. If the correct toner cartridge is installed, it may not be seated correctly. To ensure that this is not the cause of the error, do the following:
    1. Turn off the printer.
    2. Reseat the toner cartridge.
    3. Close the lid.
    4. Power the printer back on and check the display.
  4. If reseating the toner cartridge does not clear the error message and the error started as soon as you installed this particular toner cartridge, the cartridge may be broken. You can check this as follows:
    1. Power off the printer and then reinstall the old cartridge. (You can also try a different new cartridge to see if that clears the error.)
    2. If the error does disappear, the problem may lie with this cartridge. Please contact the point of purchase, especially if the cartridge is brand new out of the box.
  5. If the error cannot be cleared by putting in a new toner cartridge or one that is known to be working, the printer may require service to fix the problem.

I refilled my black cartridge of Pixma iP 1600. I have done it 3 times before and it worked perfectly until yesterday. Now when I refilled it the 4th time, the yellow LED blinks 5 times and then the green...

The manual for the PIXMA iP1600 says the following concerning the 5 blinks:

The ink cartridges are not properly installed, or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed (the ink cartridge EEPROM data is abnormal). Install the ink cartridges properly. Or, confirm that the supported ink cartridges are installed.

If you haven't already I would take a look at the electrical contacts on the cartridge to make sure they are clean (free of dust and ink) and then reinstall them in the printer. If the printer gives the same error, it's time to buy a new cartridge. 3 refills from a cartridge is not bad at all.

Hope this helps,

Phaser 4510 replace toner message won't print until new toner installed - new toner installed and still has the replace toner message

  • This product can be configured to use a metered or non-metered Toner / Print Cartridge. A non-metered machine requires a non-metered cartridge be installed to operate, while a metered machine can accept both a metered or non-metered cartridge to operate.
  • Make sure the correct cartridge is used for the machine. If you are receiving metered print cartridges but the machine will not accept them, contact your reseller or supplier to ensure that your machine is properly set up as a metered machine, and that the metered PIN has been entered

  • Make sure you don´t have any stickers on the toner box.
  • If you sure all paper and stickers are out then reset the nvm values from the device in order to reset the printer information.

The yield of the TN starter toner cartridge is approx. 1,000 pages.
The yield of the TN330 toner cartridge is approx. 1,500 pages.
The yield of the TN360 toner cartridge is approx. 2,600 pages.
Approximate cartridge yield is declared in accordance with ISO/IEC 19752(Letter/A4).

Brother strongly recommends that customers use only genuine Brother drum units 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 quality and 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.

1. Verify you installed a NEW, out of the box, genuine Brother toner cartridge (TN360/TN330).

If a toner cartridge from another machine was installed (even if there?s still toner left in the used cartridge) or a starter toner cartridge (included with the purchase of a machine) was installed, the Toner LED will stay on and the message "Toner Life End" would continue to appear on the display.

2. Verify the toner cartridge is installed correctly by following the steps listed below:

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

b. Lift the drum unit slightly and pull it out. Place the drum unit on a piece of disposable paper or cloth to avoid spilling and scattering the toner.

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

d. Gently rock the toner cartridge from side to side five or six times to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.

e. Place the toner cartridge into the drum (be sure it clicks into place).

f. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the blue tab on the top of the cartridge from right to left several times. Return the blue tab to the home position before reinstalling the drum unit assembly.

g. Reseat the drum unit into the printer pressing it in securely.

h. Close the front cover making sure it latches on both sides.

If the Toner LED is still on or the status monitor continues to display the message "Toner Life End" the printer will need service.

The printer has a one year limited exchange warranty. If the printer is 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:

I am changing the ink cartridge i put the new one in and it keeps saying End of life and it has a new cartridge what do i do

Here is the solution that will reset the count and allow your fully functional toner cartridge (the one the printer tells you is empty) to continue to work.

Open the front cover.
Press options button.
Press the start button.
Press + or up arrow button 10 times.
Press set button.

You have to do this with a long pause or the system will reset and you will have to start over.

Good luck.
