Maybe you didnt lock it completely

There is a cheap under the toner... it is probably corrupted... with a screw driver you should take it out and replace it with the old cartdrige toner.

I have a LexMark C752L. when i go to print first thing in the morning i get a 3/4" verticle stripe on the right hand side of the page. With each page i print this stripe gets less noticable until it...

Based on your description I would assume this has something to do with the Transfer belt, where in the cleaning blade of the belt is already worn or defective.
You may need to replace the printers transfer belt unit.
For further diagnosis and assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.

Yellow toner senser not responding

Toner sensor is located in the seat of the toner cartridge, and signal from it is transferred via the drum unit to the contacts on the sides of the drum unit and through them to the printer.
It sometimes happens, that these contacts, either the ones on the sides of the drum unit, or the ones inside the printer, get dirty and have poor electrical contact, giving this kind of message.
Try to reseat the toner cartridge in the drum, clean the contacts and re-insert the drum.

Konika Minolta 2430 DL won't let me print

Look through the menus on the printer for a setting for "Low Toner" -- the choices of what to do are usually either "continue" or "stop" or something similar (my 2430DL has this option setting) -- set this option to "Continue".
My 15 year old HPs also have a similar setting. However, this will keep it printing when the black runs out, so you will need to check your print production run visually as you go along to make sure the quality is what you need

Dell 5110 cn

Your problem is not fully explained above as to which color you are having difficulty with, however, the explanation below will more then likely apply to your issue as well. Simply substitute "yellow" for the color you are having an issue with. This is the explanation I gave to another user who was having problems with "yellow prints lite".

If you let the yellow ( or any other color ) toner get to the point where the toner cartridge was totally empty, there is one thing you can try which may help. From the "menu", select "maintenance", then go to "clean developer" and choose the ( which ever color ran low ). The machine will then churn for a few minutes. What happens is there is a tube that moves the toner from the toner cartridge down to the developer unit ( which is behind the imaging drum). If the toner was allowed to totally run out, there is an area of the tube which may have little or no toner in it. Each time you print, there is a spring auger within the tube that draws the toner to the developer. By running the "clean Developer" it turns the auger and re primes the tube.

If this does not fix the issue, and you have replaced the imaging unit, then the (insert color ) developer is defective and would need to be replaced.

This involves quite a bit of work and is not considered user replaceable.

I have installed a new yellow cartrige(original) but the printer does not recognise the cartrige and does not want to do anything.(Error message 150). What can I do?

if this is an Ilumina, try lifting out the whole yellow Image Drum. and make sure all the contacts(both ends) are clean from toner dust etc.(on the drum ends as well as the machine contacts) and re insert and re start....could be the trick..

Toner showing empty

first, if you refilled your toner, the printer will always tell you, that you are not using original toner and red light will blink. second, if printer tell you every time to replace different color, then you need to clean a chip reader and chips on toners. take out all toners and pc drum. under toner rack there is a chip reader, clean it with pressure air and reinstall
