Always asking replace toner


my wife and I have a hp printer and I was purchasing ink cartridges from off ebay and I was getting that same thing all the time, even with new ink. I suspected since they refill the ink from empty ones that something was haywire. so I started buying brand new ones from like walmart or office depot and don't have that problem anymore. hope it helps!

Epson 1400 not recognizing an epson ink cartridge


not necessarily faulty cartridge - had same problem went thru various cartridges some worked some didn't - in fact they weren't epson - so bought epson from office depot and that would not work, so not an issue of ink dried up - if yr printer is fairly old may be easier just to replace rather than waste time and money on trying to figure out problem

There is a faint background shadow covering the


remove toner/drum unit from the printer. remove toner from drum unit and shake toner cart. side-side to loosen toner inside. On top front of the drum unit there is a purple/blue button that will slide right-left. Do this a few times to clean the wire. If there's a lot of loose toner, take a vacuum and clean carefully. Put everything back inside. With front door still open, hold GO/Control button down until all lights have lit, then let go, close front cover.

If you still have the shadow over the page, it's most likely the toner cart and you need to buy a new one (or recond.-refill) at someplace like Office Depot or Staples.

The printed pages have a black lines that block out words or images printed under the black lines. I am using a friends Brother HL-5270 lazor printer, she has lost the manual. Six months ago, I took the...


The inside could be dirty, blowing it out could help, but first try taking out the toner and drum and cleaning the corona by running the blue tab near the front back and forth about 20 times and then blow out that area with a can of air. If you can see the lines on the drum, you may need a new drum.

Display an error OUt of Drum


Hello,

The drum unit in your printer needs to be replaced. The drum is the pars that the toner fits into. You can take your old drum into Office Depot and they can get the right number for you if you can't find it printed on the top of the drum. The drum has a page print life and when the page count hits that number you have to replace it to continue printing.

I hope this helps,

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.

Brother 1440 Printer Black streak - is it Drum or Toner?


perform a halfway test by printing something with a full page of letters or graphics and try and stop the printer before the print actually gets to the fuser but has the toner on it from the toner cartridge, remove carefully as the toner won't be melted into the paper and see if the defect is showing up on there. If it is then its your toner and if not then it's your fuser...hope this helps please leave feedback...
