Toner Not Installed

I have recently refilled the cartridges with replacement toner but now the printer status window states that each toner is not installed. I have cleaned the inside of the printer thinking that it is a sensor problem. What is the issue and how do you solve? Thanks.

How do you reset counter on Toner for TN-360

No, If you use a refill in your recent toner cartridge you need to reset the toner, if you use a new toner cartridge, no need to reset.

Cartridges error on a lexmark

Error: "Invalid Toner Cartridge"; Error: "Invalid Refill"; Message: "Change Cartridge"
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.


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.

Kyocera FS-2020D adding toner screen will not shut off

It is normal to do this "adding toner" operation aprox. 20 minutes. You have to wait until the printer enters in "ready" status. Take a little brake and relax, your printer needs to refill the developer unit with toner dust from the cartridge.

Hello sir i want to know the details of cartridge if it shows the status " The Toner is exhausted replace the toner" is there any chance to refill that one or replace it please give reply.

It depends on the Model of the printer and cartridge number. You can't refill all the cartridges. If you let me know the model of your printer and the cartridge number, I think I can help you how to refill it and how to open it apart.

HP color laserjet 1600 wonte printe new toner color.

The supply status report is based on what the kill chip is reporting to the printer. If that particular color is not printing then it is likely that current is not flowing though a particular component in the cartridge. I would return the cartridge and get a replacement.

OKI B4400 toner - is the chip reusable? I get toner not installed

The chip is not reusable and needs to be replaced every time. You should be able to find a chip on the internet somewhere. I own a Cartridge World printer cartridge refilling store and I do not recommend refilling your own toner cartridges or buying super cheap ones off the internet. The toner is generally such a low grade that it degrades your drum cartridge causing you to replace a $219 drum unit before you should have to.
