    Hi, sorry but I gave the wrong model. It is a Canon LBP-5000

    I had to guess what colour toners were empty by their weight. Changed Yellow & Cyan & printer now works. Thanks for your info....

You must replace your color toner cartridges in order to print in color even though the lights aren't on to indicate as such. For some reason the printer isn't communicating with the light indicators but the computer thinks it "knows" better and isn't going to let you get around this until you replace the cartidges or decide to use black and white. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

    It's the same thing with the 5000. One thing that you can try to do to "trick" the printer into seeing if the color cartridges are really empty. Take out the color cartridge and turn the printer off. Then put the cartridge back in and turn on the printer. See if it will print in color for you but more than likely it will give you the same results. Good luck and let me know what happens. Thanks, Keith.

Had the same issue. I had to have the drum cartridge replaced - expensive exercise! (Then I bought a Mac and there are no drivers for the printer, so I have an expensive doorstop)

Canon lasershot lbp 2410- when it is colour to be printed nothing is printed, some faint yellow only but if set to monochrome it is OK-this printer has made BW 1100 and colour 890 prints. Please help me...

turn on/off, unplug, plug in2_bing.gif, should reset configs.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.
hope this helps and good luck
