Open the front cover and leave open while completing the following steps: Turn the printer off. Hold the 'go' button while turning the printer on. All panel lights should be on. Release the 'go' button. Press the 'go' button 2 times. Pause. Press the 'go' button 5 times. The toner light should be off. The paper light should be on. Close cover. The ready light should be the only light on.

Having a clicking noise problem when installing a new toner cartridge into the fax machine. Reusing the old cartridge makes the noise go away. There is nothing wrong with the new toner (we have 2 and both...


You state that you have 2 new toners and both make a noise, but the old one does not. If both the two new toners came from the same source then it is possible that the vendor has a quality control problem and manufactured several defective cartridges. It does happen. If these are not genuine Muratec toners, that makes it all the more likely because often they are remanufactured and attention was not paid to details. Is the old cartridge from the same vendor and does it bear the same brand name if it is not a genuine Muratec item? 15 years in this business tells me that if the old one is quiet and the new ones are noisy, something is wrong with the cartridges, not your machine.

Have put in three HP factory new cartridges - same thing happens each time - first 3 pages are GREAT - PERFECT - and then subsequent pages are light, looks exactly like I need a new toner


Hi there !

Have you shake your new toner cartridge before your put it is because maybe you purchase old stock that makes them stick together. If not do it to distribute evenly the toner.

I already replace a new toner but there an error msg AP


Hi 
The AP message indicates thet the dev is so low in toner that the machine has to go into a full cycle mode to get the toner levels up.
The error code is telling you that one cycle is not enough. you will have to turn the copier off/on and cycle it at least one more time....more if neccessary

Oki C3200n Says Order K Toner after install


Two possible problems:
1. You actually got a partially empty new toner. This has happened to me once.
2. The sensor on the printer is dirty and not seeing the toner. With the toner there is a little wipe that says it is for cleaning the LED. There is an LED sensor that "reads" the presence of the toner. If this is dirty it will think there is no toner cartridge.

BROTHER Hl 2040 PRINTER WON'T PRING


I got exactly the same problem and the "reset" didn't do anything. I fixed it by putting a piece of duck tape on magic eye on the cartridge.
Fallow those step to do the same thing as me:
  1. Open the front panel.
  2. Remove the toner and the drum
  3. Remove the toner FROM the drum
  4. On each side of the toner, there should be a little glass. Put the piece of duck tape on one of them. I put mine on the right side.
  5. Put everything back in.
  6. Turn on your printer if it's not already.
  7. Now, the low toner light should be gone and the green light should be on.
Now, you can really empty your cartridge.

Toner light doesnt go away in our printer and the printer doesnt print. We changed the cartridge please help us


The HL-2070N gets jammed in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear (I have 120 in the field so I know it works!):

With paper loaded, new toner in,

  1. Open front door
  2. Turn off printer
  3. While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
  4. When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
  5. Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
  6. Press the GO button 5 times
  7. Paper light will be blinking
  8. At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.

How to reset Black Toner Empty Message on 2430Dl


There are many problems like that and its not recommended to change toner from one printer to another.
but you should try: put the old toner (emty) in again, then turn off the printer, change toner and turn on printer again.
if thats not helping, then maybe you have a old FW so you can try to update the firmware.

Stopped printing after I installed new Toner!


If the new toner is original, your unit just burned the fuser. If it is under warranty, any Samsung Authorized Service Center will gladly replace it for free.
