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

Does this also fix the "change drum" message even after the drum is replaced?

SOURCE: Error Message Drum Life Over, Replace Drum

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.

SOURCE: can't dislodge toner cartridge from the drum unit

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...

Continue to get a message to change drum soon. Changed drum already. Print quality is still not good.


hi

This message would continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum counter, follow the instructions listed below.

  1. Open the front cover.
  2. Press the Options key on the control panel.
    The display will show "REPLACE DRUM - 1.YES 2.NO".
  3. Press 1 to reset the drum count.
  4. Close the front cover.

I have a samsuns SF515 fax machine after changing the toner cartridge the message still appears "toner Empty" I have tried several new cartridges with the same issue.


if you have changed the drum/toner unit then the machine should have a fuse on top of the drum unit.I have come across some cartridges that don't have them on the unit.The fuse resets the fax so that it knows there is a new unit installed.If that does work then clear the machines memory using the control panel

Can't receive fax but can send fax


I have a feeling that it is a re-manufactured or compatible cartridge??
There is a fuse that needs to be replaced on this unit. it blows when the cartridge is installed to reset the machine. If the fuse has not been replaced or is defective the machine will not recognize the new unit.

Not recieving only in memory


My good friend:

The only reason why your unit stops printin faxes is because the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Th e unit will then try to conserve the remaining toner for printing and copying. Follow this steps to program the unit to print all faxes, even with toner low:

When the toner cartridge is nearly empty, the machine shows
the “[Toner Empty]” message and continues printing except
incoming faxes. In this case, incoming faxes are saved in
memory.
However, you can set the machine to print incoming faxes, even
though print quality is not optimal.
1 Press Menu until “Machine Setup” appears on the display.
2 Press the scroll button ( or ) until “Ignore Toner”
appears on the bottom line and press Enter.
3 Press the Scroll button ( or ) to select “On” or “Off”.
Select “On” to ignore the [Toner Empty] message.
Select “Off” to stop printing incoming faxes when the
message appears. This is the default setting.
4 Press Enter to save the selection.
5 To return to Standby mode, press Stop/Clear.

Be blessed

IntelliFAX 4750 Toner Empty


Hi, have you changed the drum anytime soon? If so did you clear the message before installing the new drum? The only other option would be to try a diffrent toner. There is not toner reset counter like there is for the drum! So I would reset the drum counter and see what happens. Good Luck
