SOURCE: Toner problems

I've had this problem several time. Usually I fix it with a q-tip!

Open the top of the printer and locate the correct toner cartridge. Pull the (blue) lever on the right side of the cartridge toward you to disengage it from the drum. Gently life the toner cartridge out of the printer.

On the right end (the end with the blue lever) there's a small slot. You should see some white plastic in there. Use the qtip to clean off any dirt or toner.

Now replace your toner cartridge and slide the blue lever back to the original position. Close the top.

This USUALLY fixes the problem. (I must stress "usually" because I'm having the problem right now and this procedure won't fix it, but I've fixed it with this method a dozen times before.)

SOURCE: Error message after installing new tonner

Check the little switch/door on the left 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.

SOURCE: 541: M toner sensor error

As the toner cartridge sits in the drum unit, the toner sensor outputs signal to drum unit which in turn conveys it to the printer via electrical contacts.
Try cleaning the contacts that are located on both sides of the corresponding drum unit, and also the contacts protruding from the sides of the drum socket inside the printer. Also reseat the toner in the drum.
If this doesn't solve the problem, try swapping two drum units - if the error now moves to the other color, than there's something wrong with the toner cartridge or the drum, and you have to find out if it's a contact problem between the toner and the drum, or perhaps the toner cartridge is defective - happened to me once.
If the error doesn't move to the other color, it means that something's wrong with the printer contacts - either they are dirty or dead, because of static electricity or something, and the printer needs servicing.

In most cases you need to use a can of air and blow out all around your toner and drum area. Then used it inside the printer to clean out the toner inside of the machine. If this doesnt work take out all 4 anc clean everything very well.

Cartridges error on a lexmark


Error: "Invalid Toner Cartridge"; Error: "Invalid Refill"; Message: "Change Cartridge"
Solution
One of these error messages may appear on the printer display immediately after or shortly after a new toner cartridge is installed into the printer. Note: This may not be specifically a toner cartridge problem; the error may be due to a stuck cover open switch on the printer.

To see if the cover open switch is the cause of this problem, open the top front cover and observe the message on the printer's display panel. The display should read Close Door or Insert Cartridge.


If this message is not displayed, the top cover open sensor and switch will need to be replaced. In addition, the printer may have damaged the new toner cartridge. If the cover open sensor is not operating properly, a new cartridge can be incorrectly flagged as a refilled cartridge by the printer. If this happens, the new cartridge will continue to cause an Invalid Refill or Invalid Cartridge error even if you try reinstalling it or installing it into another printer. If this should occur, please contact the point of purchase of the cartridge to find out how to get the cartridge replaced.

Caution: If the cover open sensor is not operating, do not install another new toner cartridge until you have completed the directions below. Inserting another new cartridge can cause that cartridge to stop working as well. Should this situation arise, please take the following actions:


Place the original working cartridge (the empty or near-empty one) back into the printer. This should clear the error message.

Turn the printer off. Doing this will disengage the cover open sensor.

With the printer switched off, open the top lid and remove the old toner cartridge.

Now replace the old cartridge with another new Lexmark toner cartridge.

Power the printer back on. The printer should now read this cartridge as a newly installed toner cartridge and the error should be cleared. The printer and toner cartridge should function properly now, but the top cover sensor on the printer will still need to be replaced.

If your printer is still under warranty or covered under a service contract, please contact Lexmark Technical Support or your service provider for further recommendations and instructions. Until you can get the cover open switch replaced, remember to have the printer powered off whenever you replace the toner cartridge.

If the top cover switch appears to be working fine, or if you have followed the above steps and your printer continues to post an Invalid Toner Cartridge or Invalid Refill error, make sure you are using a new original Lexmark toner cartridge. A toner cartridge remanufactured or refilled by a third party can cause this error.

To help identify a refilled cartridge, look for the yellow label attached to the toner drum and the body of the toner cartridge. If this is damaged or removed, the cartridge may have been refilled.

If you are using a third-party refilled or remanufactured toner cartridge, it is recommended that you install a new Lexmark brand toner cartridge. Lexmark cannot guarantee the compatibility of any third-party toner cartridges with our printers.

OR

1 Switch on the Lexmark X83 printer.

2 Lift open the cartridge door at the front of the device, below the scanner unit. The printer automatically moves the cartridge carrier to the correct position.

3 Pull each ink cartridge toward you to unclasp it from the carrier. Lift the cartridge out of the cartridge carrier.

4 Clean the copper contacts on the bottom of each cartridge with a clean, dry lint-free cloth. Use a gentle, circular motion to clean the contacts.

5 Insert the ink cartridges back into the cartridge carrier. Push back firmly on each cartridge until it snaps into place.

6 Repeat each step in this procedure again. Close the cartridge door.

I have a SHARP al-1661cs copier/printer. i keep getting a "replace TD cartridge" message. I have replaced the cartridge and it still come on every couple of days. i take the cartridge out, shake it and the...


Are you having your cartridges refilled?
By "replace TD cartridge" message do you mean the little stack of 6 red dots on the control panel?
The sensor for this condition is contained within the toner cartridge. The sensor reads the mixture of developer to toner ratio and tells the machine to add toner when needed. If you are having this problem with 3 different toner cartridges then I would suspect the toner add drive system. If you are having just the 1 cartridge refilled and have had the problem with the last 3 refills then the cartridge itself may be the problem.
I'll let you repond then we will see if further info is required.
Thank You for using Fixya.

I'm trying to install a new toner cartridge into my printer (yes, it's a Samsung cartridge, not an imitation) and the printer won't recognize the cartridge - it keeps giving me an error message saying,...


most toners have a wing or *** or? that contacts a sensor in some way when the lid closes to tell the machine a toner is present. ive had these pieces broken off on new toner or the toner sensor may be disloged from its seat. check around the perimiter of the lid to find the sensor then see if anything is present to trip the sensor. if its broken off stick a q-tip in the sensor that will get you printing til you can replace the part

Error message Sharp FO-4450 Fax machine


Press life "2" start for toner.

And life "3" start for drum.

These will reset the counters.

If you are having a "check drum error" then you have broken the sensor arm that is attached to your lid.

Call a technician in your area.
