When the Toner Life End LED flips on, requires you to replace the cartridge,
even when there's still toner left in the cartridge. The machine
detects end of life by shining a light through from one side to the
To circumvent the detection mechanism, remove the cartridge and put a piece of masking tape over or jam a little bit of paper into the clear opening/circle on the right side of the toner cartridge, and then pop the cartridge back in. Eventually, you'll start seeing streaks, and then you'll know that the cartridge is truly empty.

Usually there is more than one cartridge empty when you receive this kind of problem. Try opening the top cover and check if the display changes - it should change to specify one (or more) of the color cartridges as empty. That one(s) should be changed too.

If your cartridge has a lever on the left side near the rear, it needs to be reset, and there's a lever inside on the left that can stick and cause that error. You need to wiggle and pull that lever until it moves freely again.

Ink may be new, but their nozzles may be blocked; depending
on manner of storage. To be sure apply a folded tissue paper to the ink nuzzle
and press firmly. If the tissue comes off well blotted with ink it means you
still have a good amount of ink in it and the nozzle is not blocked. If not
blotted or scantily blotted, it means ink is really low or nozzle is blocked.
To be very sure of this, place nuzzle in a plate/saucer with a bit water so
that the nozzle is soaked. Leave for about 10 minutes. Then apply the tissue
again. If still not well blotted it means ink is really low or empty. If new
you should return it for a replacement. In the case of blocked nozzles, the
procedure may be repeated over to get results.
