Hi moneybaggz52:
Here is your problem.
Symptom:
When setting up a brand new C5100n or C5300n out of box, a toner sensor error is encountered.

The printer can display any one of the following errors:

543K: TONER SENSOR ERROR

540Y: TONER SENSOR ERROR

541M: TONER SENSOR ERROR

542C: TONER SENSOR ERROR
Cause:
This generally can be caused by two things.

1. The toner cartridge lock lever is not in the correct position.

2. The Transfer Belt lock levers are not in the correct position.
Resolution:

Check the appropriate toner cartridge lock lever (Shown below) and make sure that it is in the correct position.

CORRECT POSTITION INCORRECT POSITION


Check both transfer belt lock levers (Shown below) to ensure that they are in the correct position.

This error is an "Incompatible toner" error for using non-original Oki toner. The problem is the chip sensor cannot read the chip on the toner. So either the sensor is not working or the toner is defective.
Regards Abhilash How do u rate the service?

take out the magenta cartridge. and make sure the edges are clean. There are little metal pieces on the sides where the sensor reads the cartridge. Also, make sure the "lock" on the cartridge is locked.

Toner sensor error on an Oki C3520 Laser


Check the little switch/door on the right hand side of the drums.
This has worked successfully for me.

Symptom:
After replacement of a C3530 Image Drum, the message, "Toner Sensor Error" is displayed.

Cause:
The plastic shutter in the ID is fully or partially covering the toner sensor window.




Resolution:
Move the cover upward to allow for the sensor to become fully exposed prior to reinstalling the drum.

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
