Change toner


Step 1 Check the top of your Canon fax/copy machine to see if your specific model has a protruding extension piece from the plastic delivery tray. Push the extension piece down if one is present on your model.
Step 2
Grip the bottom edge of the paper delivery tray at the front of the machine. Lift the tray upward to reveal the rectangular, plastic toner cartridge inside the machine.

Step 3
Grab the handle at the top of the current toner cartridge and lift the cartridge upward. Pull the toner out of the machine and set it aside.
Step 4
Set your replacement toner cartridge over the empty space in the fax/copy machine. Ensure that the arrow near the bottom of the cartridge is facing down, and line up the protruding guide piece on the left side of the cartridge with the groove inside the machine. Push the toner downward until it snaps into position.
Step 5
Push the paper delivery tray back down, and lift up the extension piece if your model uses one.

How do I open the machine to change the toner cartridge?


You just pull down the front cover that is just below where the copies come out of the machine. You will see the toner cartridge. It has a small "handle" on it. It just pulls out the front of the machine. Then just unpack the new one making sure to remove the seal tape if it is installed on your new toner. Then re-install the new cartridge and close the door. If you have your users manual for the machine, the instructions are in the manual. If you are using a OEM Canon toner cartridge I believe the instructions are included in the box.

The pages are coming out blank in the middle


Remove the toner cartridge and shake it side to side a few times then re-install. This is the most common solution and also may mean your toner cartridge is getting low on toner. The other possible cause is dirty laser optics but that tends to come on very slowly and over time. If this appeared fairly sudden then it is the toner.

Cannon b840,ink cartridege seems half full ,but fax comes through ist page perfect 2nd fuzzy,blank on all following pages


Sounds like the cartridge is empty. Your cartridge has a waste toner hopper that collects excess toner from being deposited on the page. The half full feeling might just be the weight of the waste toner.

Had toner life end message. Replaced toner and drum with oem,machine reset but now just making blank copies. Tried to print internal report that's blank too


To reset the sensor after installing a new toner cartridge follow these steps.
1. With unit powered On, open the front cover.
2. Press the "Options" key. Display will show "Replace Drum?"
3. Press "Start" key.
4. Press 1,0 .
5. Display will show "Accepted" for approximately 2 seconds. Then display will change to "Cover Open".
6. Close cover and see if Toner Life End error message has gone.
Please note that this must be done with a new cartridge so the unit will see that there is toner in the cartridge.

No print on rec'd or sent faxes


Surely you don't have blank copies rec'd and sent as these are two different parts of the machine entirely. I'll assume you mean rec'd and copied. Sounds like you've left a packaging seal on the cartridge to me - or it's a faulty cartridge. Remove the cartridge and check that all packaging has been removed - especially plastic strip that prevents toner from dropping into the cartridge.

SENDING FAX COMING BACK BLANK PAGES .NOT PRINTING ATALL.


If you attempt to print any kind of report from your unit and the pages are still blank there are two posibilities.
#1 The toner cartridge tape was never pulled out correctly/ the toner cartridge might be defective.
#2 A more serious cause fo the same symtom might be a defective hi voltage section in the unit. On a newer product this is not very likely

Light copies


If you were stretching the toner cartridge, you may have depleted the toner in the machine, if your machine has a toner button on the control panel, press it and let it run its course, if it doesn't try running a few blank copies and see if this helps. The machine only adds a little each copy, if it is depleted, it will take some time to catch up as there is toner being used on each copy, but blank copies don't use toner but the machine will add at its preset level.

Failing this it may very well need a spring clean up.

Hope this is of some help.

Blank Streaks


streaks are caused either by the toner, drum, lamp or fuser.

If you make a copy and it does not show a streak then it was done by the person sending the fax. BUT, check this,

open door and take out toner cartridge. look for a thin glass that is on the bottom of the machine and wipe it. Toner spills will cause a black streak.
