We moved our computer and printer to a new house. Everything worked fine prior to the move. After we set up the computer and printer a message came up "left cartridge incorrect." This printer has rarely been used and it only about 6 months old. There was no need to change the cartridge and we have not changed the cartridge.
Are you using Jet Tec ML32 Cartridge re-manufactured cartridges or genuine Lexmark Cartridge?
If it is the Jet Tec cartridge then it is known to be faulty - purchase a Lexmark cardridge and you should be fine.
If it is the Lexmark Cardridge then I would recommend taking all of the cartridges out, turning the printer off (from the power), turning it back on, inserting the cartridges again and checking if it works.
If none of the solutions work, then your cartridge is damaged and should be replaced.

When you moved the original chip to the new cartridge, the chip is saying the cartridge is empty. Try removing the chip and the printer should know the cartridge is not empty, but might give you a message that it is not a genuine Canon cartridge.
Check the little switch/door on the left hand side of the drums. This has worked successfully for me.
After replacement of a C3530 Image Drum, the message, "Toner Sensor Error" is displayed.
The plastic shutter in the ID is fully or partially covering the toner sensor window.
Move the cover upward to allow for the sensor to become fully exposed prior to reinstalling the drum.
Had this error and did the following to solve the problem. Turn the printer off. Open the top cover and move the printer cartridge to the left. On the right you can see a white part. Press it down. Turn the printer on.
Hopefully this will clear up a little confusion I had:
1. Follow instructions for replacing toner cartridge. 2. Remove drum from printer. Take care not to handle the drum surface. Look for a small rectangular window or depression. The window will be completely or partially blocked by a flap. 3. Use a fine pointed instrument to move the flap up, so that the sensor underneath is visible. 4. Replace the drum. The error should clear after the print engine has reset.
This morning I replaced the cartridges in the Dell 942 printer, they jammed to the left which made a loud grinding noise and the cartridge jam error came on.
I solved the problem by turning the printer on with the top up which moved the cartridges to the right a little so I could reach back, push one down a little manually which freed them to move over to the middle.
I don't suggest refilling cartridges as I work on printers every day but seems to me that you have done everything correctly the only thing I think you have done is either filled with incorrect toner thus giving a incorrect reading or when moving gear you have dislodged the pin that activates the reset procedure.
