Once the key fails. You will need to get a new toner box with a new key. The seller should be able to exchange for a new one.

Ink light on changed ink still wont print

it sounds like the printer has not accepted the changed cartridge.

Try turning the printer off at the mains for 30 seconds then back on again, it sometimes works, or if that fails take out the cartridge's turn off printer for 30 mins then back on re insert inks and see if that works.

If it fails then there could well be a chip set failure on the cartridge you have replaced or maybe another cartridge within the set.

It's well worth saving the cartridge too as compatibles sometimes fail to be read by your printer but rarely the actual cartridges fail, you can put that same cartridge back in later for it to be accepted by the printer.

I changed my black cartridge, which was low. Now I get color bleeds, mostly yellow, in vertical streaks, on the printed paper.

Install the old black tonner back inside, if the yellow vertical marks disappear then the problem is in the new black tonner

Black Lines and Very Harsh noise on a new Tonner. No printing with New tonner

Those printer tonners are very tricky to refill and a bad refill induse on bad printing so you can clean the drum (the round green thing) with isopropilic alchool. If it continues it indicates that the blade ( inside tonner plastic blade that cleans the excess tonner powder) is durty and you can clean it too with the same alchool. If it continues replace the tonner cartridge.
