If you have a lexmark disregard this because their printers wont reconigze most refilled ink cartriges even if its done by proffesionals such as wal-mart est. (warranty also does not cover refils you'd need to buy a new one) what you need to do is take it and get it checked to see if they put the coulor ink in right if they did, then gently wipe the sensor on the printer, and the brass part of the ink cartridge above the ink part, put it back in and see if that works. And lastly go to your printers driver and see if you can reset the toner levels from there manually, if you cant try turning off the sensors or tricking it (google various methods) or buying new cartridge

SOURCE: toner sensor problems

On the base of machine after removing drums and transport, there are 4 sets of 3 pins that connect to left hand bottom of each drum, these can get toner on them and not make proper contact, each set of 3 pins just pop out with the help of a flat blade, out of base to be cleaned. in yout case just switch the set under the cyan with another lot from different colour.

I am taking it that you are using genuinne non imported oki drum and toner. If this doesnt fix your problem then you must have fauly drum/toner

SOURCE: toner sensor problems

Hi i have the solucion a error of sensor black oki c3100. For two times i have the problem and a long time study the problem. it´s the solucion. Because i spanish the solution is in spanish languaje.
Desmontar la tapa semitransparente redonda del lateral.
El sensor lleva un iman incorporado que dice a la impresora cuando el toner se a agotado. El polvo de impresion lleva impurezas o las ponen a proposito y hacen que el iman no pueda levantar la leva que hace contanto con el sensor. Con un destornillador limpiar las impurezas que estan pegadas al iman por dentro del toner. Cerrar y listo. YA FUNCIONA JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA.

Toner Sensor Error for Cyan and Toner Out for Black


First, I wouldn't worry about the "K toner out", it might finally disappear once you get rid of the Cyan problem, if indeed you replaced the black toner for a new and healthy one.

Make sure that the cyan toner cartridge is securely fitted in it's drum unit, and the "knob" that opens the toner cartridge is in fully open position. Sometimes when manipulating inside the printer the "knob" might get moved a bit.

Generally, the toner cartridge sensor is connected via the drum unit, so usually the problem is with proper seating of the drum unit and good electrical contact between the metal fields on the sides of the drum unit and contacts protruding inside the printer. Cleaning both of any residue might help.

Once I had a defective toner cartridge, that caused such problem, but it was the contact between the toner cartridge and the drum that was broken. You have to experiment a bit.
I'm pretty sure in this model it is possible to swap two units - if you swap for example cyan with magenta, and observe if the error moves from cyan to magenta or not, you can draw conclusions if the problem is with the toner/drum, or with the printer not seeing the cartridge for some reason (sensor inputs killed by static electricity for example).

Toshiba E-Studio 3511 Check Color Toner Cartridge

Error code c0f30


SOLUTION: Check the amount of toner in the affected unit and if empty, check the alignment of the toner sensor actuator arm. It is possible that the arms may have been jarred out of alignment during shipment and fail to sense the low/empty toner condition. This in turn, causes the IU to drop below the proper toner-to-developer ratio resulting in C-0F3x codes. Once the actuator has been properly positioned, run ATDC toner supply until the T/D ratio comes back into the specified range.
hope that help


or try to reset the machine.........

Konica minolta error


I had the same problem and found that one of the toner cartridges must have not been seated properly. I removed the black toner cartridge and re-fitted it. The printer now works fine again with no errors. 17H is a code relating to a fault in the rotation ......... possibly one or more toner cartridges need checking. Use the menu on the printer to turn it to the appropriate position (i.e. engine menu then select replacement of whichever toner you are checking).
Hope this fixes your as well.
