There are sensors along the inside right wall that tell the unit if there is a K cartridge inserted. Usually what happens is that due to a toner spill, the sensor LED is covered with toner and or is bad . Hence it does not see the K cartridge. This happens mostly with the black or K cartridge. Get some compressed air and lightly shoot some into the hole that corresponds to the K cardtridge. Only in the hole, do not spray the air anywhere else in the printer.
If this does not clear it up, you would need to replaced the sensor board which is held in with 12 springs!
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

On your printer front, press Enter key 3 times. A Menu Map will print. Under USAGE MENU check the K Drum. It shows the life left on the drum. You can also verify the amount of toner left in your cartridges. Hope this helps. If not, call Oki Support 1-800 654-3282.. They are very helpful at no charge.

If shakingthe toner doesn't work and moving the blue “handle thing” back to the unlocked and then locked position Try the following:
Try switching slots cartridge with drum with another cartridge and drum in the printer once and print a test page. Then switch them back. This actually worked for me. Information given to me by a OKI tech. It forces the printer to reset the ink amt. setting.

Once you get the error message 353: Black Drum Life, Open the cover and close it immediately. Then you'll get a second error message 502: Reprint. Press Online bottom and this should start printing.

Minolta 8650 problem c-2a01

loo like you replaced the cyan toner cart.. (with the machine powered off and unplugged) take a look inside the machine with the cyan toner cart out.. make sure that nothing is blocking the metal contacts or if there are dirty contacts. perhaps there is a piece of debris that is blocking the connection of the new toner cart to the printer. another thing to check is the contacts on the toner cart its self.

I have a Brother MFC-7440N machine. On 7/22/10

The toner cartridges have a small port on the side that the printer uses to check the toner level. Our 7440N tells us it will soon need a new toner cartridge and will then print another 400 copies. Search YouTube for Brother Toner Cartridge and it will show you how to modify the cartridge by covering up the portholes with tape. Since there is obviously some kind of sensor, you might need to get a can of air and clean out any extra toner. Lastly, the Brother cartridges have "reset gears" which are replaced when the cartridges are refilled. You might have a cartridge which the gears were not replaced on.

Toner for fax machine 2920

If your machine is a Brother Intellifax 2920, it does take a TN-350 toner cartridge. Maybe you were wanting to replace the Drum Unit instead, DR-350. I'll bet this info is useful, yes?

Hi, My Dell 3100CN printer is displaying "Change Black Toner." I have replaced the toner cartridge. The printer begins to calibrate for a very long time. When it finally finished calibrating, it return to...

There is a chip in each toner cartridge which tells the main machine something about how full it is. It may be that it tells it how full it is, or it may be that it tells it how many pages it has done. It sounds as if the new black cartridge has a duff chip, and is telling the main machine that it is empty. To test this, you can overide the message. 1. press on the menu button;
2. select configure;
3. select maintenance;
4. select non-dell toner;
5. set the value to on.
If that does't work, get back to me.

Waste toner box

The waste toner box did you happen maybe break the a small black piece off the waste toner box there is slot for the clear section on the back of the old toner box and you can tell by looking at the machine where the sensor is for that in middle. there should be to the right lower of the machine inside where the toner box goes two slots one handles sensor that tell the copier the box is installed and another for half full box. Have NEW one install it. make sure your toner box has those parts that stick out to accurate those sensors.

Waste ink tank full on a Ricoh Africio MP C1500 sp

The book doesn't really tell you where it is in the machine but if you open the door in front of the copier, look for a white plastic bottle with toner in. Remove the toner bottle from the machine and dispose of the toner bottle and replace it with a new one or dispose of the waste toner. Clean the bottle and replace it back into the machine.

Brother 9440cn replace toner message override

well you could shake the toner cartridge, to make sure that the remaining toner has uniform coverage to the developer roller, which is the black magentic roller in the toner, which applies the toner onto the drum.

Only way to fix, if the printer uses a electronic sensor, is to actually change the toner, it can not be overridden.

Copier won't print after refilling toner cartridge

As far as I know, filling up with toner is not enough. There is an electronic chip that must also be replaced, so the toner cartridge tells the unit it is a new one. Check with your supplier for such chip.

Ricoh SP C410DN

Unfortunately the newer ricoh equipment may include a chip like the HP toner. This allows the printer to track the usage so the printer can "intelligently" determine how much toner remains in the bottle. The chip overides all other factors on the remaining toner. Hence, if the chip "thinks" that the toner bottle has little or no toner left, it will give you a false toner low message. Presently, you can only replace the toner with a new bottle.

Gestetner 3222 toner

I take it that you removed the black cap on the toner bottle OK thats out of the way open the door remove the toner as you would to replace. Remove the toner bottle look inside the bell behind the green handle and check that you can see a claw type thing if you cannot remove obstruction. Refit the toner close door and wait until machine stops and see if toner light goes out. If not open door wait 15 seconds close door and machine will start loading toner again. You may have to do this 5-6 times if it doesn't work after this then likely thing is the toner motor faulty and will need replacing

Thanks J
