SOURCE: Check toner cartridge
Yes to non OEM's and those of you who are using them they cause heap em troubles.
It can be the drum they sit on, or toner dust on contacts of drums, machine base, and toner cart sides , also machine has eyes that get dusty, on machine frame at every toner/drum.
Pull out a tonerlook at side of handle there is a rectangle cut out silver/or black inside this lines up with "eyes" in side of printer frame, clean em.
I have also found a lot of import oki toners going around causing grief too, but fix is always sucessfull by A new gen non import toner and drum and ensuring contacts are free from toner dust.
Another thing I find customers doing is not replacing toners when machine requests them ie at REPLACE TONER, instead they find that just openning and closing lid keeps them going, but these machines hold a complete toner in the drum unit too, so all they are doing is depleting that and when they do finally provide a toner it goes straight into filling up the drum and therefore shortly will display repalce toner again.
Signgirl - your using OEM's so I suspect drum/contacts/eyes what % are t drums at and are they oem too?
Wendy - dont recommend aftermarket/refills all the money you save will be paid to someone like me to come and fix the problems they end up causing.
OKiproblem - ever use aftermarket carts/drum, and what are % of consumables?

SOURCE: Sensor Error
About the croaking noise:
The drum unit, underneat the toner cartridge, at the left side (seeing the machine from the front) has a kind of a pump device, made with an internal small belt (you can't disassembly it), its function is to move the old used toner, that exit the cartridge from the left hole, into the springed plunger, the toner moves into that chamber and is pumped back into the cartridge. In time that chamber receives so much old toner that the small transporter belt inside can't move anymore, it makes a very high load to the pulleys and they jump tooth, so the noise. You may want to disassembly the drum unit, (as reference the yellow p/n is 42126601), and get isolated just that chamber, there is only one small plastic geat that moves the pump inside. The gear must rotate somehow free, if not, try to such old toner using a vacuum cleaner, but you will need to keep rotating the gear by hand to pull out all the bad toner. It may exit from the bottom hole or from the spring loaded plunger on top (when pulling the spring). If you are lucky you may have it working back again, if not, prepare your dollars bills to replace the unit. The croaking you are listening may be cause by this or it may be a wrong drum unit you installed into the machine. Check the gears between the old and new units. Good luck. Wagner.

Check the little switch/door on the right hand side of the drums.
This has worked successfully for me.
After replacement of a C3530 Image Drum, the message, "Toner Sensor Error" is displayed.
The plastic shutter in the ID is fully or partially covering the toner sensor window.
Move the cover upward to allow for the sensor to become fully exposed prior to reinstalling the drum.

SOURCE: 540 : y toner sensor error
Here is your problem.
When setting up a brand new C5100n or C5300n out of box, a toner sensor error is encountered.
The printer can display any one of the following errors:
543K: TONER SENSOR ERROR
540Y: TONER SENSOR ERROR
541M: TONER SENSOR ERROR
542C: TONER SENSOR ERROR
This generally can be caused by two things.
1. The toner cartridge lock lever is not in the correct position.
2. The Transfer Belt lock levers are not in the correct position.
Check the appropriate toner cartridge lock lever (Shown below) and make sure that it is in the correct position.
CORRECT POSTITION INCORRECT POSITION
Check both transfer belt lock levers (Shown below) to ensure that they are in the correct position.
Hopes this helps
