My Ricoh CL7000 is saying add toner magenta. But there is plenty of magenta in the cartridge. I've added toner and cleaned out everywhere I can get to. Any suggestions?

It could be a clog in the toner tube, but the most likely (and easiest to fix) problem is the magenta DV unit. Replace the magenta DV unit, turn the machine off and back on, and if it still says add magenta toner open and close the toner cover so that it can load toner, then your problem should be gone.

Our Dell 5110cn is producing magenta horizontal bands roughly a half inch wide and about 3/4 inch apart from each other, with less distinct magenta coloration in between. Likely cause?

You should replace the magenta developer M6090.
There is a little bit of disassembly required, but it's not too bad.
Be careful if you are using 3rd party toner, because it's often the cause of this issue.

Copier gets magenta toner on copies. Might get 1

There is probably an electrical fault related to the fuser unit or another high voltage component causing the machine to shut down. Since you have not mentioned the error it would be hard to ascertain exactly. Magenta on copies will be a sign that your machine needs cleaning and servicing by a trained technician - as there will be corona wires, cleaner units etc that need cleaning or replacing. The technician will probably find the cause of the shutting down whilst they are servicing it.

Hi Paul,

I don't mind the direct email at all.

The corkscrew in the tube is actually there to feed toner from the toner cartridges through the tube, to the developer itself.

Unlike some other model printers, where the toner and photodeveloper are all in one housing, the 5100 toners are just that, toner cartridges that feed toner. You will never fix a print quality issue on the 5100 by changing toners unless the toner is empty.

now the question here is whether or not you disconnected the spring from the motor that actually turns it and causes it to churn the toner. If it is not connected, then you will never draw toner down the tube into the developer assembly.

I most cases, the developer will be the cause of the problem when you have tinting, streaking, or even missing colors.

if you disassembled the printer far enough to get to the tubes that plug into the developer frame, you were almost to the point you need to get to to remove the developer frame from the printer.

all you have to do is remove all 4 hoses, the single electical connector at the top of the frame, and then the frame will pull lose from the printer.

If you do remove it, take care to keep the frame upright or you will spill toner from all 4 developers.

This is the unit you should inspect to make sure it can turn freely, after it is removed from the frame.

there are only 2 clips, one on each side of each developer assembly that hold it to the frame. If you remove the Magenta developer, make sure that you can turn the gear. it should be firm, but not tight.

If you do remove the developer frame, make sure you clean the ROS glass. This is actually the printhead, located behind the frame when removed, so be careful.

only wipe with a soft lint free cloth, and only wipe in one direction to prevent smearing. Do this before reinstalling the developer frame.

Once you are reassembled ( if you changed the magenta or not ), make sure you go into Maintenance, and developer cleaning, and then clean each developer. Be careful not to touch the HVPS, but try to do this with the top cover off so you can see if the spring in EACH tube actually churns the toner while cleaning.

Feel Free to write again to comment or just let me know how you did.

Please do take a moment to rate this solution please...

I am going to answer this even though there was no reply to my clarification report.

No, it is not a HVPS problem. This is a magenta developer problem. The magenta developer for some reason has the highest failure rate of all the developers, including black. Perhaps because there are more shades of magenta in color prints.

Since you changed the toner, we can assume you are not out of magenta, but it is possible that you did not run a developer cleaning in the maintenance mode on the magenta developer.

If the magenta toner had been allowed to run out all of the way, a developer cleaning would allow the toner auger to move fresh toner from the toner dispenser, through the feed tube, into the developer.

If you have run the developer cleaning, and you can see that there is magena toner on the magenta developer ( for clarification, the developers are located behind the imaging drum. remove the drum to expose the 4 developers ), then the developer itself is defective.

Good luck.
