If it is the there is a gear that can be reset on the toner cartridge2_bing.gif to tell the machine its a new toner cartridge. This is normally done by an engineer, but is quite easy to do if you know how. And I do :0

SOURCE: refilled ink cartridges on pixma mp490 ...will not print

I know this is frustrating. I am all for recycling and using refilled ink and laser toner cartridges. However, the manufacturers make most of their money from ink and toner sales. So, from time to time, they will encode or datecode cartridge chips. The only times I've been ale to get around this is by using at least one genuine OEM cartridge to trick the printer. If that does not work, try another et of refills, or you will have to use only OEMs.

A new black toner cartridge on my hp2840 has printed 22 pages and estimated pages remaining is 2. The supplies status page says 'based on page coverage with this supply of 100%'. ...


This is just a issued reading of the cartridge counter..or you used a refilled cartridge ..you should reset the printer and aim for resetting the counter ..and will get rid of the issue ..The thing is Im not sure if this supports the refilled one if this is the case..if it is not a refilled one ..but you just forgot to confirm new cartridge ..than the reset will take care of the issue for sure..
http://www.ehow.com/how_6326020_reset-hp-laserjet-2840.html
you can also try a power reset ..just unplug while the printer is on ..and then after a few minutes (leave it time to get rid of the power left ..and forget the settings ) than power it back ..and hold he power button down for 10 to 15 seconds..It might work too ..
If this will not ..than you will have to repeat the reset ..until will work ...or if it has a maintenance mode..look for counter reset ..

I have just replaced my toner on my HP M2727 nf printer, how do I reset the page count only?


There is no resettable page count on this printer. If you are referring to the counter for the toner level, that is reset by a chip on the cartridge. That chip only works once and if you are using a refilled cartrige that chip should have been replaced. If you refilled it yourself you will need to check on Ebay to find a replacement chip. If you bought a refilled from someone else, take it back and get them to change it. If you bought an OEM HP cartridge and it does not reset the count then call HP as the guarantee their cartridges.

Hp laserjet 1100 toner catridge refill?


Hi follow these steps..

1.Purchase a refill kit for your model of printer. It is important to purchase a refill kit designed for your specific model, since generic refill kits do not work well with HP printers. There are a number of places to buy these kits, but you must make sure you get the right kit for your printer model

2.Take the toner out of the printer and clean it carefully. Over time toner cartridges will accumulate paper dust, dried toner and other debris, and all of this must be cleaned away before the cartridge is refilled.

3.Flip the cover out of the way to expose the developer roller, then use a soft clean cloth to clean the roller. It is important to clean this roller before refilling the cartridge.

4.Make a small hole in the toner cartridge, using the instructions provided in the refill kit. It is important to follow the refill kit instructions carefully, since the toner refill process will vary from model to model.

5.Place the replacement toner in the hopper, then carefully pour it into the HP cartridge. Be careful not to spill any of the toner, and if you do spill the toner be sure to clean it up promptly. Reseal the hole you made after the cartridge has been refilled.

6.Sit the refilled HP cartridge on a clean flat surface and let it remain there for 20-30 minutes. Pick up the cartridge and make sure no toner has leaked out. If you do see any leaks you will need to reseal the hole you made again.

7.Pick up the cartridge and make sure no toner has leaked out. If you do see any leaks you will need to reseal the hole you made again.

Good Luck & cheers:-)

Refilled cartridges


the pixma range need to have the chips reset or refilled before they become empty.

Put in a genuine cartridge and it should work. Buy a set of cartridges with dummy chips that allow the printer to use refilled cartridges.

Printer catridge


If you just want to REPLACE the toner cartridge, open the front door and jiggle the combined toner & drum units out. push down on a blue tab on the side to release the TN-350 toner cartridge and lift it out of the DR-350 drum cartridge. If you have the toner cartridge out and want to refill it you7rself, DON'T. You can buy toner with about the right size grains, but Brother uses toner with grains that are much smoother and rounder than that aftermarket stuff. The toner is constantly stirred during the print process, and the rough-grained aftermarket toner puts up so much resistance that it often breaks a gear in the body of your MFC. Brother usually doesn't cover that one in their warranty.

I think I know what the problem is...

For instructions on how to do this follw this link:

It has pictures and explains how to reset the cartridge
Good luck,
