Question about Panasonic DP-150FX Laser Printer

Having toner issues...

I received a used unit without any sort of manual and the online manuals do not give instructions for toner refill.  I opend the little square slot and tried to pour toner into the unit (mostly made a mess) and did get quite a bit in there.  Now, the machine is still telling me it needs toner.  Did I refill it incorrectly or do I need to reset something?

Re: Having toner issues...

Are you sure this supports a simple refill? some printers might complain about "toner" while problem is on its "drum" unit. I would buy a compatible toner and try it out.

Laser printer refills Cause damage over time.

Hello my fellow fixya users.

I got a huge tip for your and the reason why I post this tip is to save you on huge repair cost or ultimately the replacement of you laser printer.

My church recently fell victim of there Dell laser printers giving out. I was asked as a tech why?

I asked them well are you using original toner from the manufacture our are you paying some dude $50 bucks to refill that toner?

Low and behold they where using re manufactured refilled toner cartridge from a company that did not pass inspection.

So I had to replace there DRUM after only 3 months of use of this printer. Dell did not want anything to do with warranty because they decided to save a few extra bucks.

the issue is:

1. Lubercation of the movable parts
2. Corrosive toner (ever heard of that?)
3. The sensor mimics a FULL message to the on-board circuit in the printer thinking its full so it will just print. (This causes paper jams and all other sorts of malfunction.)

Now I respect other reviews on and visited the refilled idea myself in the past until i discovered my failures as well.

Do not be fooled by people trying to bait you into ink programs or toner programs your life of your printer depends on it.

I wear badges on fixya for a REASON, It's because our community of aker's feel I have what it takes to support them in those areas. Make no mistake about this folks refilled/remanufactured is for the birds!! Yes you save money and yes it does work fine, but not for long!!!

Do not let me catch you at Best Buy or any store with a brand new printer in your hand just because you wanted cheap printing.

You get what you pay for! Buy cheap ink get cheap results. Buy re manufactured toner and get a re manufactured printer back from your manufacture!!!

Trust me I done plenty of homework on this. My church put me on there technical advisory committee for a reason!!! They feel I know what the heck I am saying and you will too.

Just give it time!!

Do not trust me click this!!

My Minolta Magicolor 2500W printer indicates that it is out of black toner. I have never changed the toner cartridge before and cannot find the instruction manual. (bought it almost 3 years ago...) Do I...

Firstly buy a black toner refill and a "CHIP". The chip is a small printed circuit carrying a chip, mounted on the top right hand corner of the toner cartridge held in by a small cross point screw. Remove the cartridge and looking at the right end you will see a round (About 3/4 inch dia) plastic bung. Lift this bung out and carefully refill the cartridge (The refill supplier will probably clarify this I am saying). Replace the bung, clean up all the messy dust and remove the old chip replacing it with the new one. Make sure you dont lose the little screw and insert it fully without over turning it. Thereafter all should be OK.

Problem with Sharp AR 337

are you refilling the toner cart? if yes..

An easier way is to take out the whole developer unit. Pull down green handle as if you were replacing the toner, there is to the lower right of the developer unit a white handle that if you move to the right will allow you to remove the DV unit. Then there are 5 or 6 screws around the top edge that will allow you to remove the top and manually refill it there instead of trying to refill the cart and making a bigger mess.

Hope that helps...

Resetting Toner count onprint settings PRINT SETTINGS report

I don't suggest refilling cartridges as I work on printers every day but seems to me that you have done everything correctly the only thing I think you have done is either filled with incorrect toner thus giving a incorrect reading or when moving gear you have dislodged the pin that activates the reset procedure.

Thanks J
