SOURCE: Toner end life message

i solved the brother mfc8860 toner life end problem
hi guys my name is reedwaan. Im new at this site so please listen up 
my brother toner i refilled with toner and inserted it. It said toner life end then i patched the windows close on the sides and still the same problem, then i removed the toner and loosened the two screws on the left by the gears then removed the cover of the gears. 
Right at the back there is a funny looking gear with a spring behind it. All you have to do is pull the spring a little bit clockwise and push the gear back on hooking the spring into it so that the gear is spring loaded. close it up then test it, It took me a while to figure it out but i got it right. 
NB*  The gear that you push on, is the toner reset gear and when you push it on make sure the teeth dont interlock with the second gear on the left of it. If you have any queries mail me on reedwaan@yahoo.com 
glad to help out

SOURCE: NG: Poor Line Condition / Out Of Memory

This problem could be Phone line problem, or hardware failure or receiver's (the machine of the person whom you are sending the fax) machine problem and so on. First, let's check the line, if you have another Phone line, please dial from the number to your number, also, connect the currently connected line to a receiver and call a Land-line number, if the outgoing or incoming is ok, the proceed forward, otherwise, you telephone operator should check the line.

Sometimes, sending fax to a particular number doesn't work, to make sure, try sending a fax to another number.

If the line which is connected to the machine is extended from another machine such as Receiver, Switch, etc... unplug them and connect the fax machine directly to the Line.

It's also important to adjust the compatibility mode, to do this, follow the steps below:

  • Press Menu.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Fax.
  • Press OK.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Miscellaneous.
  • Press OK.
  • Press the up or down arrow key to select Compatibility.
  • Press the left or right arrow key to select Basic (for VoIP).
  • Press OK.
  • Press Stop/Exit.

If you place the scanning document/file on the auto-sheet feeder, you can help it pulling inside the passage or you can use the glass (flatbed) instead. Sometimes, this small mistakes with the sheet-feeder creates this problem. You can also clean the rollers inside the ADF (auto document feeder) passage.


If all of the above measure don't help, I would suggest you to call brother and seek their help. The rest is with mechanical or we can say hardware or firmware related issue. (use this form to contact Brother)

I wish you good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Pls . help me experts , i have kyocera km3050 copier but the lcd touchscreen is not responding but days past when it still responding its getting hard to respond. please help me with this experts


A hard reset can clear minor error codes. A lot of times you do not really need to call for your support contractor. Sometimes errors stop the function of a machine, but the machine could still function properly with a hard reset. Perhaps there is a better description than hard reset, as "reset disable function" is a little bit confusing and not a phrase you were likely look for.
Contact your service provider before following these instructions.
Use at your own risk. Perhaps there is a possibility of causing damage. Again, contact your provider.
From our copier service company:
This reset is used for two purposes:
1) reset any data that may be "hung up" in the hard drive.
2) reset an error code and attempt to continue use. (If the error recurs, then you should escalate to whomever supports the copier.
Hard Reset Procedure:
Press Status button
Enter 10871087 - You are now in Maintenance Mode
Enter 906 (do not enter any other numbers!)
Press Start
Press Execute
Press Start
Copier tells you to turn it off/on
Turn off power by switch on right side of copier (hard power off)
Turn on power by switch on right
I have seen to use code 163 instead of 906. I don't know what this does. Again, consult experts before using this code or any others.

What you mean by 'toner low' in cannon MF4320-4350 ??


Hi,
Toner Low message appears on the printer display screen when the toner cartridge is exhausted and there is no more toner powder left in the cartridge. At this point, you need to replace the toner cartridge in order to print. It is recommended that you buy an original toner cartridge to replace it because original cartridge will give you better results

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I have e-studio 355, machine is indicate low toner. I replaced new toner cartridge but the machine show "toner not recognize". I try to replace the ic at the back of the old toner cartridge and...


Do not go very far yet, the problem is with the toner so I recommend you do what the machine says before looking somewhere else. replace with correct toner.
If you have a friend with the similar machine which is working properly try and get their toner put in your machine if it works buy similar toner if does not then it is the machine. You can also try your unrecognized tone in another machine see the results. The problem is just toner and the sensors in your machine.

Black lines on copies and on drum


There are a few things you can do to troubleshoot this problem.
  1. Be sure you are using new, clean paper
  2. Clean the copier's paper rollers, the marks may result from a dirty roller mechanism.
  3. Clean the copier bed's glass plate, smudges manifest themselves in the final copies.
  4. Clear any excess toner that has spilled in the toner cartridge chamber. Remove the cartridge, set it aside, then clean the compartment.
  5. Check for low toner levels. Low toner levels can actually contribute to unsightly lines and blotches on a photocopy
If all else fails, try turning down the darkness of the copies in the settings, this can occasionally lead to lines and marks.

Turn off low toner message


This is not possible on this model, as the error is a direct result of a sensor bar in the cartridge reporting an unacceptable level of voltage due to low toner in the cartridge. You must replace the cartridge.

Ricoh CL 7000 error code SC 387


This Code relates to color gamma error in the Yellow development. Possible causes Low toner density in the Y toner,Toner supply Y mechanism problem( not supplying enough toner),Laser exposure problem, image transfer problem. My suggestion would be to ensure you have toner in the cartridge( but by this time it has depleted the developer), and you will need to replace the development unit and possibly the drum Unit. My best guess would be the development Unit.

Not responding


The E000019-0000 error message simply means the waste toner is full. There is an optical beam that passes through the top of the waste toner container and when the beam gets interrupted, you will get this message. If you have the same model printer/copier (Canon IR 3300) series, unplug the machine for your safety and you will need a screw driver to remove the lower left side panel towards the back to pull out the waste toner receptacle. Dump, Clean, and replace. That should clear up the error message. Hope this helps. ~Angela~
