Invalid Toner Error

I have replaced the black toner CLT-K409S twice, but I'm still getting an invalid toner error. I have cleared system sttings and cleaned the contacts, but still the message appears. Is there a setting to clear toner memory, as I cannot find it. Thanks in advance!

Andy, all answer are valid,
Do,, uninstall the the software and re install it. If that does not work you will have to clear it from registry. That will wipe out all traces of your printer but please be careful.

Dear Andy
the genuine cart. can solve the problem. also you can replace the toner chip with a fresh chip. as this chip kept the toner use and paper counts etc. so try it.
thanks.

Cartridges error on a lexmark


Error: "Invalid Toner Cartridge"; Error: "Invalid Refill"; Message: "Change Cartridge"
Solution
One of these error messages may appear on the printer display immediately after or shortly after a new toner cartridge is installed into the printer. Note: This may not be specifically a toner cartridge problem; the error may be due to a stuck cover open switch on the printer.

To see if the cover open switch is the cause of this problem, open the top front cover and observe the message on the printer's display panel. The display should read Close Door or Insert Cartridge.


If this message is not displayed, the top cover open sensor and switch will need to be replaced. In addition, the printer may have damaged the new toner cartridge. If the cover open sensor is not operating properly, a new cartridge can be incorrectly flagged as a refilled cartridge by the printer. If this happens, the new cartridge will continue to cause an Invalid Refill or Invalid Cartridge error even if you try reinstalling it or installing it into another printer. If this should occur, please contact the point of purchase of the cartridge to find out how to get the cartridge replaced.

Caution: If the cover open sensor is not operating, do not install another new toner cartridge until you have completed the directions below. Inserting another new cartridge can cause that cartridge to stop working as well. Should this situation arise, please take the following actions:


Place the original working cartridge (the empty or near-empty one) back into the printer. This should clear the error message.

Turn the printer off. Doing this will disengage the cover open sensor.

With the printer switched off, open the top lid and remove the old toner cartridge.

Now replace the old cartridge with another new Lexmark toner cartridge.

Power the printer back on. The printer should now read this cartridge as a newly installed toner cartridge and the error should be cleared. The printer and toner cartridge should function properly now, but the top cover sensor on the printer will still need to be replaced.

If your printer is still under warranty or covered under a service contract, please contact Lexmark Technical Support or your service provider for further recommendations and instructions. Until you can get the cover open switch replaced, remember to have the printer powered off whenever you replace the toner cartridge.

If the top cover switch appears to be working fine, or if you have followed the above steps and your printer continues to post an Invalid Toner Cartridge or Invalid Refill error, make sure you are using a new original Lexmark toner cartridge. A toner cartridge remanufactured or refilled by a third party can cause this error.

To help identify a refilled cartridge, look for the yellow label attached to the toner drum and the body of the toner cartridge. If this is damaged or removed, the cartridge may have been refilled.

If you are using a third-party refilled or remanufactured toner cartridge, it is recommended that you install a new Lexmark brand toner cartridge. Lexmark cannot guarantee the compatibility of any third-party toner cartridges with our printers.

OR

1 Switch on the Lexmark X83 printer.

2 Lift open the cartridge door at the front of the device, below the scanner unit. The printer automatically moves the cartridge carrier to the correct position.

3 Pull each ink cartridge toward you to unclasp it from the carrier. Lift the cartridge out of the cartridge carrier.

4 Clean the copper contacts on the bottom of each cartridge with a clean, dry lint-free cloth. Use a gentle, circular motion to clean the contacts.

5 Insert the ink cartridges back into the cartridge carrier. Push back firmly on each cartridge until it snaps into place.

6 Repeat each step in this procedure again. Close the cartridge door.

Can not find the imaging unit for samsung CLX 3170. Do not know how to fix it. Printer says to to replace it soon.


Please have a look at the links below; each includes a short video to help explain the process. You should order an imaging unit to have on hand for replacement. At the end are included the product number for your consumables. Suggest you find a local supplier or seacrh on-line for a competive price or you can opt to puchase directly from Samsung.

I could not find information specific to your model on the proper relacements for the imaging unit and toner cartridges; however, I was able to find a statement that the CLX-3170FN and CLX-3175FN are the same printer the main difference is just the colour of the unit. They should therefore use the same imaging unit and toner cartridges which I have listed below:

CLT-M409S Magenta
CLT-C409S Cyan
CLT-K409S Black
CLT-R409 Imaging Unit
CLT-W409 Waste Toner Collector
CLT-Y409S Yellow

Lexmark optra t610 invalid refill error change cartridge......how do i reset the printer to disable the error


The error may not be specifically a toner cartridge problem but may be due to a stuck cover open switch on the printer. Perhaps this article on Error: "Invalid Toner Cartridge" or "Invalid Refill" will be able to determine the root cause of the problem. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/dupj2m. Just make sure you are using a genuine Lexmark toner in the printer. If you need further assistance, you can also contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.

Hello,

The problem is that the MICR Toner Wire was placed into the wrong jumper position on the TROY Font Card. By moving it to the other jumper, this should clear your 'Invalid Toner Sense State' Error. If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact me at 800-633-2266 x 218 or vial email to bmcmillen@troygroup.com.

Error message: invalid toner yellow


If the toner is empty it will display this message and the only way I know of getting rid of it is to replace the cartridge. They do make refill kits with extra chips so you can cut the old one out and sticky tape another on. As for a clearing code I am unaware of one for this unit as the information is store in the toner cartridge.

Sorry
