Toner cartridge shows 70% toner but print is light

This is the 2nd cart where the % decline is very slow and both have run out of toner at about 70%. When I install a new cartridge it shows 100% and prints fine.

Hello,

On most laser printers the toner in the cartridges is distributed by a rotating feed mechanism. This method works ok but is not the best for even distribution. Many times the toner will build up in the ends of the cartridge where the feeder can't move it around like it should. Try takeing the cartridge out of your printer and shaking the cartridge from side to side not up and down(that would only pack it tighter in the ends) After this reinsert the cartridge in your printer and try printing again.

I've replaced the toner cartridge and waste toner bottle, but the display still says 'toner low' and 'waste toner near full'. It refuses to print, even with the old cartridges.


Then you mite want to clean the sensor that monitor the waster toner box pull out the waste toner box and look for the area that show clear plastic then look for those area of the machine and blow the old toner from those areas waste toner mite have gotten on the sensor saw they can not see the clear plastic and think that the waste toner cart is still full.

Just purchased a used HP LaserJet 4 Plus -- when turned on and installed it is showing 14 no EP CART -- we do not use cartridges so need to reset to default settings. Tried Power On and holding online but...


Ensure that the Toner Cartridge is installed correctly (fully
seated into the printer). Try a new Toner Cartridge. If the
problem continues, try this

14 NO EP CART Message

The printer detects the presence of the Toner Cartridge and the
level of toner present in the cartridge through the condition of the
ANTIN signal. The ANTIN signal becomes part of the serial data
stream used to communicate with the DC Controller (see Figure
7-5 for cartridge components). Troubleshoot the 14 NO EP CART
(or INSTALL TONER CARTRIDGE) message as follows:
1 Reseat the Toner Cartridge. Try a new or known good Toner
Cartridge.
2 Check the High Voltage Contacts for damage. If the contacts
are dirty or damaged, clean the contacts after the repair.
3 Replace the High Voltage Power Supply.
4 Check and reseat the HVPS cable.
5 Replace the DC Controller.

HP LASERJET 1020 JUST STOPPED PRINTING. THE IMAGE DIDN'T FADE WITH USE LIKE THE TONER CART WAS GOING. IT GOES THRU ALL THE MOTIONS BUT THERE IS NO IMAGE. CAN THE TONER JUST RUN OUT. REALLY DONT WANT TO...


Hi there !

You don't mention clearly the problem. If your cartridge is new, there will be no problem in it. The problem it the document, you are printing. Check the printing file document.

If you it stops printing, runs out of paper and red light is blinking. all you have to do is to open the cartridge door and closed it to resume on printing.

The usual sign of toner end is print out is getting faded until nothings printing.

If still the print does not print, just refresh your printer by turning it off and then turn it on again.

I hope it help you find the problem and Good Luck. Thank you for using FixYa !

Brother HL-2040, The drum light keeps coming on and the left side of the printed page is all black?


Sounds like the toner cart. has toner packed at one end and possibly the drum cartridge is dirty. Remove both from the printer, separate the 2 and vacuum the drum cart. - them blow it clean. Run the drum wire cleaner (purple/blue tab on front edge of drum cart.) back & forth a number of times. Blow out the inside of the printer to get out toner dust. Reinstall toner back into drum cart, then hold GO/Control button down until all lights are on, let go, reinstall toner&drum back into printer, close door. Power down - then back on. That should do it. Worst case, you'll have to replace the drum unit.

At times i get a message 14 no toner cart and then i am unable to make prints


No Toner then it prints again..
This could be lower toner, a generic toner cartridge will sometimes produce this, or dirty contacts where the cartridge lays in machine.
Look at the toner cartridge, where you see shiny silver or bronze, clean excess toner off, also in machine where toner cartridge lays, clean all excess toner out.

Toner light on, will not print


These printers rely on a manual lever on the side of the cartridge to tell the printer there is a new toner cart. The lever has two arms for the 550 (low yield) and one lever for the high yield cart. It sounds like the gears were not reset on the cart. Is the cartridge brand new, or remanufactured? I can give you more info on how to reset the cartridge.....

If it is the there is a gear that can be reset on the toner cartridge2_bing.gif to tell the machine its a new toner cartridge. This is normally done by an engineer, but is quite easy to do if you know how. And I do :0
