Are you sure it is a genuine toner cartridge? Remanufactured or recycled cartridges not always work as offered. If it is new and original, take it to the store for a replacement. These toners use a chip that validates with the unit, so there is no reset.

Sharp MX-M232D Copier call for service F2-40


Problem with your toner supply .... you're not getting enough toner mixed into your developer tank. Sometimes the cartridge will empty out without the machine giving warning, or the CRUM counter chip on the back of the cartridge wil zap out or wind down to zero. Try replacing your toner cartridge, if that doesn't clear the code your developer mix is out of balance and may need to be changed and reset.

Toner light stays on after I changed cartridge


These are defects of Brother cartridges, even you put a new cartridge the toner empty still not reset. What we are doing is re-positioning the toner end cam on the side of the cartridge. You have to be knowledgeable with the machine to to that.

Brother 9460 reset toner


Like most laser printers, the toner light comes on early. This gives you time to order new toner. I find it best, since it does not stop the printer from printing, just to have a toner on hand and when your toner is empty replace it. Since this is a mesurement inside the toner cartridge its self, there is no way to reset the warning (other than replace the cartridge).

I had new tonner cartridge installed and it still says tonner life ended


The toner cartridge in this machine has a gear assembly that resetting the "toner empty" light, it is build in a way that after resetting the printer it "disabling" the gear, so no second reset is possible. If you install the new cartridge previously and took it out it already run the reset cycle and will not be able to reset the printer even if it full with toner. Some time the gear reset system will not reset even if it is new. If you reset the gear and the light comes back your cartridge is empty.
You can open the gear cover on the toner cartridge and reset the gear to the original position it is not a big deal, but don't hold me liable to your technical ability. The reset gear is the most right gear behind the "window" on the right side of the cover, when you are holding the cartridge with the gear housing in front of you. Good luck.

Samsung sf-5100 fax toner empty


I have a feeling that it is a re-manufactured or compatible cartridge??
There is a fuse that needs to be replaced on this unit. it blows when the cartridge is installed to reset the machine. If the fuse has not been replaced or is defective the machine will not recognize the new unit.

"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.
