Re: Pagepro printer toner empty problem

I agree with boyrevel. shaking the toner hard will settle the toner, may be the cartridge is not used for long or it is quite old. the sensor has think ink on it, only hard shaking can slove it...or get a new one.

Don't waste money on Printer Ink. Save up to 65% on toner cartridges, ink cartridges and printer supplies.

Re: Pagepro printer toner empty problem

1. It tries to pump toner into a reservoir. If it doesn't activate a full sensor for the reservoir, it shows toner low. 2. Take the toner out and shake it hard about 10 times, this will make any settled toner loose, and should solve this. The problem is normally caused by old toner (your supplier might have had it on their shelf for a year or two).

Why my printer says "incorrect catridge"when i replaced new same catridge?

Clean the contacts with 90% Isopropyl Alcohol and a Q-Tip until they are clean, most likely they are very dirty, maybe even covered in INK from the last cartridge.

Out of Toner / Change Toner - Canon image CLASS MF4370dn

The percentage-of-available-toner is based on calculations made by the printer's internal software -- quite different from putting a measuring-stick into an above-ground oil-tank to determine the ACTUAL level.

So, while the calculations say "zero percent left", there still is some toner inside the toner-cartridge, and so it still prints.

Buy a replacement cartridge. When you finally do run-out of toner, install the new cartridge.

Compare it to buying a new quart of milk, and then using the last 1/8 of the quart of the milk currently inside your refrigerator -- use the "old" milk until it is 100% gone, and then switch to the "new" milk.

Sounds like a fusing error . If your able to wipe the toner off the page its a fuser unit problem (replace fuser unit).

Also clean the copier's paper rollers. Marks on copies will occasionally be the result of a dirty paper-rolling mechanism. Simply access these rollers (your photocopier will likely have a plaque or series of signs indicating the locations of these areas) and wipe them off.

Clean the copier bed's glass plate. One of the most common causes of blemishes in photocopies is a dirty glass plate. In some cases a permanent mark, such as a scratch, will be present on the plate, showing up in every copy as a dark line or spot. However, most problems attributed to the glass plate can be fixed by wiping the plate with a soft towel and common household glass cleaner.

Clear any excess toner that has spilled or overflowed in the toner cartridge chamber. Excess toner will almost always result in blemishes on your copies. The most effective means of cleanup is to remove the toner cartridge and set it aside, thoroughly cleaning up any spilled toner in the compartment before putting the cartridge back in place.

Check for low toner levels. Low toner levels can actually contribute to unsightly lines and blotches on a photocopy. Most photocopiers will automatically indicate the need to replace an empty or low toner cartridge; while the toner is low, these models will permit continued copying. Consult your photocopier's instruction manual or key to warning lights and indicators for how to tell if the toner is low or empty.

"toner empty" problem

The samsung sf 5100 toner cartridge has a .05 Amps fuse in it. This gets blowed when you switch on the machine.This is used to reset the page counter and also to inform the machine that you have inserted a new toner. Now this recycled cartriges will not have this fuse and this is the reason why your machine shows TONER EMTY message! If you dont get the same rating fuse, put any fuse of the same size, insert the toner, close the door and just switch on the power and switch off immediately. Then take out the Toner cartridge and remove the fuse. Now your cartridge is ready for use.

The way that cartridge works is by a fuse. When you first install it the printer calibrates itself to the new cartridge and blows the fuse. look for a blown fuse in your fax. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Anyway, if the printer senses an improper toner/developer balance it will default to XXXX copies and give you the message. You can to reset the machine - this might help. Good luck!
