Question about Panasonic KX-FL511 Plain Paper Laser Fax
I replaced my drum with an ebay unit, it worked for a while, I have replaced the toner several times, and keep getting the message.
There is a magnetic sensor under the drum unit maybe it is misplaced . You can put a small piece of magnets on it so the error will go on.

SOURCE: low toner message
sounds like you have a bent toner sensor. turn the machine off and take the toner out and place on the side
what you could try to do is grab a piece of paper fold it in 4 like so
|__|__| then rip one piece like so |__|
then rip one piece off and fold that 5 times over it self.
look into where the toner goes in the middle you will see a silver bracket with a black round piece of plastic on the top left conner you need to put that piece of paper under that coner where the black circle is and turn the machine back on then put the toner in.
if this does not work you need a tech to look at it

The "drum" referred to is the imaging drum which is replaced separately from the toner cartridge. The drum life is rated for a certain number of copies, and the printer is telling you it's time. Replacement drums are available at big-box office places and from many online sources. Just do a Google search for "kx-fl511 drum". The new drum just slides in much like the toner cartridge, so replacing it isn't difficult.

Sometimes a peice of the cartridge comes or breaks off and jams in the way, it can be a real headache trying to remove. If you search around the lower part you may find a peice hanging down and blocking it. A lot of time you'll need a tech to keep from damaging the printer.
Hope that helps...
