SOURCE: 543:K toner sensor error
we had the same problem and tried the above method, it didn't do the trick for us, but we went a bit further.
The place described with the little white plastic (under the blue lever) we took the little plastic plate of and cleaned the whole inside (the sensor is in there a, little hole). Put the plastic plate back and that was it. Hope if the above doesn't work, this will.

SOURCE: Check toner cartridge
Yes to non OEM's and those of you who are using them they cause heap em troubles.
It can be the drum they sit on, or toner dust on contacts of drums, machine base, and toner cart sides , also machine has eyes that get dusty, on machine frame at every toner/drum.
Pull out a tonerlook at side of handle there is a rectangle cut out silver/or black inside this lines up with "eyes" in side of printer frame, clean em.
I have also found a lot of import oki toners going around causing grief too, but fix is always sucessfull by A new gen non import toner and drum and ensuring contacts are free from toner dust.
Another thing I find customers doing is not replacing toners when machine requests them ie at REPLACE TONER, instead they find that just openning and closing lid keeps them going, but these machines hold a complete toner in the drum unit too, so all they are doing is depleting that and when they do finally provide a toner it goes straight into filling up the drum and therefore shortly will display repalce toner again.
Signgirl - your using OEM's so I suspect drum/contacts/eyes what % are t drums at and are they oem too?
Wendy - dont recommend aftermarket/refills all the money you save will be paid to someone like me to come and fix the problems they end up causing.
OKiproblem - ever use aftermarket carts/drum, and what are % of consumables?
