I purchased a used fax L80, when I inserted the toner cartridge the machine reved up and the LCD came back with a "insert cartridge" message. I thought perhaps the cartridge was damaged, brought a new one and came back with the same results.
The cartridge isn't the problem normally when you close the front door there are switchs under the cover that control things like sensing the toner cartridge. most likly one of those switch levers are out of place. to check them your will have to remove the top cover to do this you will have to take the screws out in the back of the machine as well as the ones in the front covers when you have the door open. then the top cover will lift off and the lever and switchs are on the right side facing the front of the machine. with the top cover off you can close the door and see if the switch is being activated or if there is parts floating in the top of the machine. hope this helps.

Look at where you install the toner cartridge. There should be a little tab or button or lever that the cartridge pushes once inserted. In fact, there is likely to be several, not counting the doors you opened to get where you are. Often, one of these tabs breaks, or lever bends, or button is misaligned. Just look around where you put the toner in, and ask yourself, "what is this supposed to do?" and as you go, also ask "what is expected that is not happening?"
The Canon Faxphone L80 takes a Canon FX3 cartridge. To get the highest quality refill I would first see if there is a Cartridge World store in your area. Cartridge World stores refill most cartridges in house with American made parts. Then try Office Depot. Office Depot is the only big box store that actually "remanufactures" toner cartridges. I would not recommend cheap refills or refill kits from the internet. Many use very low quality toner that wears on parts leading to print defects or they reuse parts that already generate print defects. DO NOT buy a "compatible" cartridge, these are not refills. They are new cartridge replicas and have no recycled components.
The printer cover is the cover that you open to remove the cartridge. Open it and check that the cartridge is inserted correctly. Remove and reinsert cartridge then close the cover. Check all around the m/c to make sure all doors are closed.
The L80 printer guts are very similar to the HP 5L and HP 6L printer (Not well known, but the printing engines on many HP printers are made by Canon). In fact it is almost possible to use a 5L/6L toner cartridge in the L80, but as I recall there was a plastic nub that prevented it from fitting properly. This is probably meant to force the user to buy more expensive Canon toner carts instead of using cheaper generics for the 5L/6L. Try HP PartSurfer and you may be able to locate the part that you need.
Pull toner and drum cartridge out by folding front door down and seperate the toner from the drum by pressing the blue lever. re-insert the toner into the new drum. After installing the cartridge back into the printer, leave door open and press the clear button and on the LCD screen you will see for new drum press 1 for yes and 2 for no. Press the 1 button and close front door. Finished. Please rate my help if this fixed your issue. Thanks!
If you pull the cartridge out and look inside the are to Metal pins to the right hand side make sure niether are stuck. Also if you are using refilled or refurbished cartridge they may not have been filled with the proper type of toner and the magnets in the cartrisge may not be regonizing the toner.
The samsung sf 5100 toner cartridge has a .05 Amps fuse in it. This gets blowed when you switch on the machine.This is used to reset the page counter and also to inform the machine that you have inserted a new toner. Now this recycled cartriges will not have this fuse and this is the reason why your machine shows TONER EMTY message! If you dont get the same rating fuse, put any fuse of the same size, insert the toner, close the door and just switch on the power and switch off immediately. Then take out the Toner cartridge and remove the fuse. Now your cartridge is ready for use.
The spring is probably from the toner cartidge. This machine takes a FX3 cartridge. There is guard on the cartridge that shield the drum from damage as you insert and remove the cartridge from the machine.Look on the top right hand side of the machine and you should see a hairpin style spring. If it isn't there, then thats probably it. Now this guard piece relies on the spring for proper operation of the cartridge as it uncovers the connections that mate with the ones in the machine. Also as you insert the cartridge, an actuator lever is depressed that tells the machine there is a cartridge present. You will have to replace the cartridge to make the machine work if you can't relocate this spring properly.
