SOURCE: Add Black Toner Msg.

Thanks Ricohman for the suggestion. Toner was original Ricoh cartridge and reinstalling it didn't help. I decided to tear the machine apart and discovered the auger for the black toner was stuck. I removed the auger, cleaned everything up and put the machine back together. Works great now.

You may have to replace the transfer belt or the drum. I would start with the drum first

How do i override an empty color cartridge so that I can atleast print in black?


There is an error in the control logic of the printer that you can exploit like this:

  1. Start printing your document, you will receive the error message "missing toner"
  2. open the front door and close it again, this will reinitialize the test cycle
  3. the printer will now print one page before verifying the toner content again
  4. after one page you get the"toner empty" message again. Reopen the door and close it again to print another page.

This is only an emergency workaround if you really need to print something black urgently, in the long run you still have to buy a new toner.

Select true black and white. Any other setting uses the colour cartridge to sharpen the printing.

I have a Lexmark x1100 Series printer and cannot print anything now. This printer has been working but it stopped printing. Do not have the CD.


Need more info. Any error messages? Did it just stop pumping ink on paper. Are you trying to print black text or color picture? If no error, your cartridges may be empty. If black text does not work, try color picture. Usually one cartridge goes empty and the other still has ink. If color pic prints replace black cartridge. If neither black or color prints at all, it may be a toasted printhead

If you need to reinstall the software, uninstall it, then go to lexmark.com and get new drivers from their site. RESTART COMPUTER! Reinstall from the downloaded file.

If all the above fail to make it work, it is hosed, shop for new printer.

Hi tfonts,

This is normal behavior for proprietary print devices if you have not provided them with a new print cartridge and have instead filled them yourself.

Ricoh Aficio Color Registration Error


One of our Ricoh CL3500N printers- less than a year old- gave us a "color regist error" after changing the transfer belt.

Ran the "adjust color regist" without results. It would just finish and pop back up with the same error.

Color test page printed no color, just BW

I reseated everything, and even replaced the PCU without positive results.

A couple hours later I went back, took everything out (be sure to keep the pcus out of the light!), and vaccuumed the heck outta that printer.

For whatever reason- maybe there was a chunk of toner hanging out, maybe I knocked something loose or back in place, whatever- but when I put all the parts in and turned it on, the error was gone and color printed great!
