Re: my printer is not printing

My printer at work kept saying it was low on black toner. I finally replaced when I got the message Black toner supply error. I gave it a minute or two to adjust itself and when that didn't work, I turned off for about ten seconds and then restarted it. I've only had two problems with this printer and I have had to turn it off both times before it would work perfectly, if that helps anyone.

Unpluged the CLX-3160FN and repluged. the cyan toner supply error went away and the printer now works fine. Thanks for your help.

Re: my printer is not printing

I had the same problem with my cyan on the 3160, it turned out to be a bad imaging unit and I had to return the printer through Staples because I couldn't get support from Samsung. Good luck.

I have a Lexmark C522 Color Laser printer, all cartridges are showing as ok, no error messages but printed pages have specks of magenta toner on them

It sounds as though you have a leaking toner cartridge. If you aren't using Lexmark brand toner, that is VERY likely.. nobody seems to be able to make a good compatible cartridge. Test by replacing it.

Ricoh CL4000DN. I recharged the magenta toner using the OEM cartridge. I replaced the chip as instructed and all elements snapped together without difficulty. However, now there is a "check toner...

Hi, the chip on those toner bottles stores information about how much toner is left, so once that chip registers an empty toner bottle, it won't work even if you attach it to a new toner bottle. You'll need the chip from a new toner bottle, or one that hasn't registered no toner.

That is a magenta toner empty message, either the magenta cartridge is empty or there is an issue with the magenta toner dispensing.

It means that there is Magenta toner density sensor error.Try to reset or replace Magenta development unit and then turn the printer off and back on.It should fix the problem,providing that the Magenta toner supply channel is not clogged up and functioning properly.

Magenta cartridge empty

When you take the toner cartridge off the imaging unit, is there magenta toner in the open slot of the IU? Assuming that there is nothing wrong with the toner cartridge, you are possibly looking at a bad engine control board.
