You need to remove the left side panel. there is a hole in which you can find a button. press and hold this button as you plug in the power chord and turn on the printer. if all is well, the printer will print one or more pages with nothing but horizontal lines. this is the engine test. if this works, you need to turn it off and back on again. if the problem returns, it means that your formatter PCB is broken (this is the printed board behind the left side panel you removed) and needs to be replaced.

Here's the troubleshooting steps I'd recommend for this:
1. Replace toner cartridge
2. Check the paper path for small scraps of paper. When someone gets a paper jam, sometimes they yank on the paper and tear it to clear the jam. It only takes a scrap of paper smaller than a dime to create a jam error. Remove the toner cartridge and pull up the registration assembly flap (it should have a small green handle to lift it up for this reason); use a flashlight to see in. What you're looking for is usually near the edges of the rollers or gear assemblies.
3. Check the fuser.

It's too difficult to explain how to do that here, but the instructions of how to do all of this is in the Service Manual. That you can download for free in a multi-part RAR file at the following link:

I use WinRAR to open these files.

Faded printing


Clean the toner roller blades

You Tube Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ipw1RjwzUDg

Shows you the problem & how to fix it. There's a metal blade on the edge of each toner roller which can get clogged with small bits of toner & prevent even distribution. Clean the blade with a lolly stick & put it back together.

I tried this with CLP 320 cartridge - same principle but can be messy because the cartridge is full of toner powder.

Why i get black streaks on paper in laser printer prints?


there are some possibilities for this problem. i will explain it. 1) First of all check out if the toner is full ,half or near to empty. There is no exact procedure to check the powder left in the toner without opening the toner.but in one toner there comes about near to 1500 copies.if you have got about 1200 to 1300 copies.then its quite possible that the power left is near to empty so the streaks comes on the paper due to less powder left.many times in this case removing and shaking the toner then reinserting the toner again and checking the printout helps. 2) But if you are sure that toner is not empty then other possibility is.in the toner cartridge there is a aluminium drum.its easily seen in the cartridge.once you remove the cartridge. if that drum is got very much used then due to that drum the streaks appear.fox example.if the drum is new the print is very dark.if the drum gets old the print gets very light or with streaks or faded print. 3) Now if drum and toner powder both are proper and still the problem then its the fault in the printer.in your printer there is some toner powder got spilled out on the inner parts from where the printing paper passes.so when the paper passes from the part where the powder is fallen or got collected then the streaks comes.in this case the printer needs internal cleaning and servicing. 4) but in some cases it has been noticed that internal powder of the toner becomes moist and very hard to come out from the toner for printing.in this case either toner needs to be refilled or toner needs to be replaced.you can get the toner refilled from local cartridge refilling store or local stationery shops dealing in cartridge refillings.The cartridge refilling shops also have the same printer for checking the cartridge.so at the refilling shop it will be confirmed whether the fault is in cartridge or printer.
This will help. Thanks .

My Ricoh SP 232sf wont print at all because the K toner is out of toner but it has plenty of color. Can I force it to print somehow?


Unfortunately, no, the printer won't print even in color if the black toner is empty. The black drum rotates whether the copier is printing in black & white or color, so if black is empty you can't print at all.

Hi! I am getting a "replace toner yellow" error message. The orange lightning bolt error light is on too. Do I need to replace the yellow toner to print in black and white or is there a different error...


Specifically on the Magicolor 5430DL you can print when a cartridge is empty, but this is disabled by default. To enable printing even with a toner cartridge empty.Press the Menu Button, then press the right button until the ENGINE menu appears and press the select button.Next press the right button until TONER appears and press SelectOnce in the Toner Menu the first option should be "EMPTY" if not press the right button until you see "EMPTY" and press Select.There are two options, the default is "STOP" pressing the right button once should change from STOP to CONTINUE.While the display reads "CONTINUE" press Select.You should see the message "CONTINUE is selected"You can now print even when one or more cartridges are empty. However, the lack of the cartridge's color will be noticed in any print jobs calling for that color... (Obviously)

Brother Printer 2150N - toner light has come on & toner is OK


Bought a 2150 in 2007. In 2008 toner light came on. Bought a new toner cartridge and installed. Light would not go off. Called Brother. They had us do the following:
1) Turn power off
2) Open front cover
3) Press white button (left side) 2 times and hold
4) Turn power on
5) Press white button 6 times and hold. All 3 lights should come on.
6) Close cover
7) Press blue button 3 times. Should print demo page.

We took the new cartridge out and saved it. The original is still working fine.

The problem may be the toner cartridge itself. You may need to get a new toner and clean the printer, again. Once the printer is clean re-place the new toner cartridge.
