What probably happened is that when you removed the paper jam, some piece of the printer became unaligned. This piece is blocking the path to put the toner cart back in. In most HPs there levers inside the printer that are green, and that indicates that they are paper jam problem areas. You can move the green lever to open up a place where you may see paper stuck. Make sure all these green lever items are in the correct position.
Sometimes the toner carts are just a little tricky to put in. So if you haven't done it before, just ensure you are doing it correctly. I've also had people try to put it in upside down. I doubt that either of these are your problem, though.
Whatever you do, don't try to force the cartridge back in.

T652n 202.03 paperjam


1Open the upper-front cover and remove the toner cartridge.2
Look into the printer. Remove any jammed sheets of paper that you find there.

  • If the print job only consisted of this one page, reinstall the toner cartridge and close the front cover. Press the pattlnk_10162008_2247-select_button.jpg button to clear the error, and then try printing again.

  • If the print job consisted of more than one page, confirm the entire paper path is clear before printing again. Do the following:


    1. Remove the top paper tray ('Tray 1').
    2. Remove any jammed or partially-fed sheets of paper you find here, then reinstall the tray.
    3. Go around to the back of the machine and open the upper-rear cover. Remove any jammed sheets of paper you find, then close the cover.
    4. Once you have confirmed that the entire paper path is clear, reinstall the toner cartridge and close the front cover.
    5. Press the pattlnk_10162008_2247-select_button.jpg button to clear the error, and then try printing again.


  • If you cannot locate any jammed paper under the toner cartridge, then check the rest of the printer for any jammed paper. Do the following:

    • Remove the top paper tray ('Tray 1') and look for any jammed or partially-fed sheets of paper.
    • If you do not find any jammed pages there, reinstall the tray and go around to the back of the machine. Open the upper-rear cover and look there.
    • If the entire paper path appears to be clear, close the rear cover and power off the printer. Reinstall the toner cartridge and close the front cover. Power the printer back on. If a 200 error continues on power up, a sensor in the printer may be malfunctioning. This will require a service call to correct the issue. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional information (see Contacting Lexmark Technical Supportbelow for details).

Our Brother HL4040CN is saying "drum error slide the green tab on drum unit in each color" How do you do this


The green tab referred to on the drum unit slides a thin wire across the drum to scrape off any built-up toner that has accumulated.

To do this, first open the door to access the toner/drum cartridges (it's the same door you'd open to replace a spent cartridge). Remove one of the cartridges; the inside of the door will have a sticker illustrating the exact steps to do this. Once you've removed a cartridge, look to the end that is inserted first when installing it (the end opposite the one grasped to remove the cartridge). You should see a small green tab here. Slide it left and right several times to clear away any blockage. For good measure, vigorously shake the cartridge side to side to evenly redistribute the remaining toner evenly inside the cartridge. Replace the cartridge and repeat these steps for each one remaining.

If you still get an error after following these steps, remove each cartridge and shake it extra vigorously for at least 10 seconds. Sometimes the toner can clump inside the cartridge, causing the printer to interpret it as a blockage. This is especially likely to occur if you live in an area with a humid environment.

How do you change the toner cartridge on the xerox workcentre pro 423?


You can always find your solution to a Xerox problem at the Xerox Knowledgebase. Here is the direct link to this solution with pictures! http://www.support.xerox.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE?St=467,E=0000000002703228701,K=8434,Sxi=4,Case=obj(862)
Solution : Replace the Drum / Toner (Dry Ink) Cartridge
CAUTION: Do not use warm water or cleaning solvents to remove Toner (Dry Ink) from your skin or clothing. This will set the Toner and make it difficult to remove. If any Toner gets on your skin or clothing, use a brush to remove the Toner, blow it off, or wash it off with cold water and mild soap. If not, launder your clothes with detergent and cold water. If the fabric label says to dry clean, inform a commercial dry cleaner that the spot is Toner so that they will not use a solvent that will set the stain.

NOTE: Make sure the Cartridge part number corresponds to the machine model. If an incorrect Cartridge is installed the message 'Check Drum / Toner (Dry Ink) Cartridge Message' will continue to appear on the machine display.
  1. While lifting the upper, right-hand cover release lever of the machine, pull the upper right hand cover towards the right until it stops.
  2. Open the Front Cover on the machine.
  3. Grasp the Cartridge by the handle on the front, and slide it toward you until the top handle is completely clear of the machine.
  4. Lift up on the top handle and slide the cartridge out of the machine.

  5. CAUTION: Do not shake the cartridge and this could cause the Toner to spill.

  6. Before you remove the new cartridge from the bag, shake it vigorously from side to side several times to loosen the contents.
  7. Holding the new cartridge by the top handle, begin sliding it into the machine as indicated in the picture above. Do not push on the handle on the front of the cartridge as the cartridge will jam.
  8. Hold the cartridge in place and pull the Toner seal tape until the cartridge is completely in place.
  9. Close the Front Cover.
  10. Close the upper right-hand cover.
  11. If necessary, press [C] on the Control Panel to clear any messages. The system will initiate a Copy Quality adjustment cycle after you press the [Start] button.

Paper comes out black when printing and copying.


A. The drum is not being charged. The charger corona wire is probably broken or not making good electrical contact. The charger corona wire may be part of the toner cartridge. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the toner cartridge. If that doesn’t work, try another toner cartridge.

I have a paperjam on my colour laser printer CLX 3170 and I dont know how to get to the paperjam inside the machine


Step 1
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
Step 2
Turn off the printer.
Step 3
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Step 4
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
Step 5
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
Step 6
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
Step 7
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though.
Step 8
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
Step 9
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Inspect the paper path once again.

If you have changed the toner cartridge, the printer must complete a calibration cycle (up to 150 seconds). If you open the door before the Ready indicator on the control panel lights up and the Error indicator turns off, the printer stops and repeats the calibration cycle.

1. Open the Status Display (double-click on Status Display icon in the system tray on the lower right-hand portion of the task bar, OR click Start/Programs/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Utilities/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Status), and then check which toner color is empty.

5. Click OK.
6. When the toner indicator on the control panel starts flashing, open the printer's front door. The carousel is automatically repositioned so that the appropriate toner cartridge can be removed.

2300-2.gif9. Remove the new toner cartridge from its shipping carton.

Each toner cartridge has a colored end that corresponds to a color inside the cartridge slots. Always install the toner cartridge in the slot of the same color.

Toner cartridge wont come out.


Try removing the corresponding drum unit below it first. If you remove the waste toner bottle you will then be able to pull down the plastic handle and drop the small door that covers the four drum units. Try and remove only the same colour as the problem toner first. Now try and push the toner back in and then remove it. After, slide the drum unit back in. Good luck
