Re: Toner Low Light

Make sure you pulled the seal out before you replaced toner,if you did not,do so.if you did i need to know if you purchased oem or generic replacement cartridge. check package instrutions on how to remove seal,or to see if cartridge even has seal.

Sharp Al1655cs copier black smudge down center of page about as wide as a pencil


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.

Replaced toner alarm light is still on saying replace toner

The toner has a fuse in it. When you replace the toner the fuse blows and resets the toner counter/light. Sometimes it blows and fails to reset. If you can solider you can replace the fuse and try again. Otherwise you will have to exchange the toner cartridge for a new one.

"Toner Low" keeps showing

Hi Meridy!
There could be a few reasons for the Toner Low msg you're getting.
  1. The toner wasn't evenly distributed when the cartridge was changed (shake gently from side to side before installing)
  2. The cartridge wasn't properly installed (ensure that the lock lever "clicked" into place
  3. The corona wire wasn't cleaned when changing the cartridge or the the blue tab wasn't put back in place (this is less likely the issue but still a possibility)
  4. The new toner cartridge was old and is now defective
I hope this helps with your problem. All the best!

Toner alarm stays on with new cartridge

Printhead is dried up and may need to be replaced. The printhead usually has a life kinda like the inks. You should be able to find a printhead from your local fax repair shop and installation should be simple. Once replaced you may install inks and run several cleaning cycles. Please let me know if this helped.

PanaFax UF-780 toner error.

If you mean a 788, there are moveable tabs on the front top of the cartridge that trip switches. Move them around.

Several companies have their own brand names on Panafax's. Their toner won't work. Kyocera must be kyocera Toner, Canon must be Canon toner, etc.

Make sure you have not installed a Toner Cartridge made for the Panafax 585/595 or one for a Kyocera-Mita KM-F650.or Pitney Bowes

It should be UG-5510

The all look identical.

No what u have is that you need to also replace the Drum. That is why the light is reading low toner still.
