    Same Problem. I just change the toner and then I get an error that it is not the manufacturer toner installed and says it is low. Makes no sense to me

    Konica-Minolta (now Sony for Service) advised the replacement was a "compatable" and as it was not OEM, not guaranteed to work. They suggested the CHIP did not reset. Contact with found them sending replacement and RMA lable for return of original. Awaiting replacement.

There are silver wire contacts on the left and right that are spring-loaded and touch on copper tabs on the cartridge. They may not be making proper contact. Wiping with some contact cleaner ona cloth may help, or failing that try brightening the surfaces with some fine Scotchbrite pad to help them make proper contact.

I am changing the ink cartridge i put the new one in and it keeps saying End of life and it has a new cartridge what do i do

Here is the solution that will reset the count and allow your fully functional toner cartridge (the one the printer tells you is empty) to continue to work.

Open the front cover.
Press options button.
Press the start button.
Press + or up arrow button 10 times.
Press set button.

You have to do this with a long pause or the system will reset and you will have to start over.

Good luck.

It says toner life end and it prints just fine

The toner life end message means the toner is getting low. It will continue to print without any problem. Eventually you will see the print starting to get light in spots. If it is a new cartridge, the toner level sensors are probably dirty.

Toner life end

There is no reset code the likely thing is that you have a faulty toner cartridge. Put another new one in and check the machine then.

Before you try the above shake the toner cartridge and tap it some more as it may also be the toner inside have become solid and needs breaking up.

Hope one of the above works for you
Thanks J
