How do I monitor toner levels in my Sharp copier or MFP?
You can monitor the toner levels in your Sharp copier or MFP by pressing and holding down the COPY function key . Two pieces of information will then be displayed.
The Total Copy count on the device
The remaining toner levels. This will be shown in 25% increments. When you get down to 25% capacity check to see if you have spare toner on hand. If not, give us a call and we will promptly deliver.
to check the toner level just press the button and wait the second light(orange) to turn On and then release the button. The printer will print two pages one with configuration and one with the supply status of the toner cartridge
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.
Remove the toner cartridge and print cartridge
assembly. Slightly shake it from side to side to redistribute toner properly. Also, please check the supply level of your toner cartridge. You might want to consider replacing the toner cartridge since you have already replace the PC unit. Also, check the transfer roll for signs of toner buildup and contamination. Inspect the HVPS contact (transfer roll) for contamination. Verify the high voltage cable is plugged into the LVPS/HVPS.
If all the steps mentioned above were done. I would suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance.
Cartridge comes along with memory, the information of estimated ink/toner levels will stored in this memory(Depends upon the cartridge model yield will varies). When printer performs the printing, memory count will comes down, when its reaches the minimum count printer will display the message of "low ink/toner/remain pages" levels, once its reaches to '0', display will changes like "replace the cartridge"...But there is no electronic component or mechanism to measure the ink/toner levels in the cartridges.Only estimated levels only printer can recognizes.. Take usage page through menu, you will get the information that usage % & printed pages info,you can judge how much remain it can print...

Do you have a new toner cartridge loaded? The red/orange light will blink when toner is low, even if everything else is working fine. Try printing out a test sheet and see what that tells you about your toner level. (Test sheep prints by holding the orange button down a second or two and releasing.)
Since I'm mainly printing drafts for my own use, I've just let the light blink while I eke out whatever I can from the remaining toner (occassionally removing the cartridge and shaking it -- being careful of clothes and surroundings -- to re-distribute the toner on the inside.
