Keeps showing J1 error, toner light is flashing

We just installed a new toner cartridge so I can't work why the toner light is flashing. The toner shouldn't tbe the problem because it's brand new. I don't have a manual so I don't know what this J1 error is. I've pulled out the drum and toner cartridge and put it back in again. But its not helping. Also, there's a lot of carbon dust sprinkled around inside so I don't know if that's causing the problem. Any suggestions would be great.

Re: Keeps showing J1 error, toner light is flashing

The J1 error means the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. Since you just replaced the cartridge, you should remove the cartridge and repeat the following steps.. Shake the new toner cartridge horizontally four or five times and then remove the cover. Slide the new toner cartridge in until it locks in place. It sounds like the cover may still be on the cartridge.

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 ;-)

Maybe the toner is low... According to the manual, a blinking red light:

• A minor error is occurring and
the printer is waiting for the error
to be cleared. When the problem
is cleared, the printer resumes
• The toner cartridge is low. Order
a new toner cartridge. You can
temporarily improve print quality
by redistributing the toner. See
page 8.3.
• The toner is totally exhausted.
Remove the old toner cartridge
and install a new one. See page
• The toner cartridge reached the
end of its life.

Hi I have just reconnected my Konica Minolta Page Pro 1400 and installed the new cartridge - when I switch it on I can hear it start running and then it stops and the fan keeps going but the error light is...

In the user guide, a blinking error and ready light may indicate a communication failure and to make sure the printer cable is seated properly. Otherwise a blinking error light only indicates a media jam or no toner cartridge installed. For the media issue, make sure no paper is caught anywhere inside the printer. If the toner is the problem, try another cartridge. One of those should solve your problem.

J1 Error, Changed a brand new factory-sealed toner, still getting J1 Error

Make sure you have the right code: J1 or J2.
one is for the drum and the other is for the ink.
Make sure the toner unit is for this model and not for a different model.
If the old modual is still available, check the connectors at the back and see if they are the same.
If anything else Call Xerox for repair. If the cartridge was bought through Xerox have your reciete available for warrenty.
If repairs still need to be made, A Xerox service call may be needed in order to fully repair the copier and warrenty the cartridge.

Xerox workcentre Xl2130f copier printer error j1

that is the message for low or out of toner. What you are doing by tapping it is just lostening the reemaining ink in the cartridge. If the cartridge is new, have it replaced where ever you purchased it because most likely its defective.

J1 error code

J1 is detecting either a low or out of toner condition.
Maybe just need to have the cartridge shook, replaced or it could lastly need the toner sensor replaced.
