Are you sure that you removed the plastic strip that is used to ship the toner? If so unseat and re-seat the cartridge, and make sure that your installing a compatible cartridge.

Hi moneybaggz52:
Here is your problem.

When setting up a brand new C5100n or C5300n out of box, a toner sensor error is encountered.

The printer can display any one of the following errors:

543K: TONER SENSOR ERROR

540Y: TONER SENSOR ERROR

541M: TONER SENSOR ERROR

542C: TONER SENSOR ERROR
Cause:
This generally can be caused by two things.

Sharp MX-M232D: F2-40 error. I was able to scan without issues. When I inserted a Sharp Genuine Toner cartridge into the machine, I receive an F2-40 error.


Hi,
If you have reset the machine as described & then re--inserted the same toner cartridge giving you the same error code then I would suspect the CRUM chip that is installed on the toner cartridge is faulty.
If your machine is under a maintenance contract which includes the provision of toner then contact your service provider & they should replace it F.O.C. If you have purchased it yourself then contact the supplier advising them of a faulty cartridge. If you replace the toner with a new one, you must reset the machine as above before you insert the new toner.
Hope this helps.

Cartridges error on a lexmark


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

OR

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.

Hello thanks for using Fixya

A 929 Service Toner Sensor error indicates a problem with the toner sensor, the front harness cable, or the developer drive. It could also mean that the toner cartridge is defective.

The most likely cause of this error is the toner cartridge itself. This is especially true if it is a new cartridge and the error started after you installed it.
To solve it try this:

Take the cartridge out of the printer and locate the encoder wheel on the right-hand side of the cartridge. The encoder wheel can be found on the right side of the cartridge (usually over a bar code sticker). It is a thin, black, plastic wheel with small rectangular notches cut into it. This wheel will sometimes get stuck, but you can free it by turning it by hand.
Try moving the wheel forwards and backwards a little. If it does not turn correctly, you will receive a 929 Toner Sensor error on the printer when you try to use the cartridge it is attached to
Note: The encoder wheel moves only a little bit each way. It should not make a complete revolution. If it does, the wheel is probably broken.
Try to move it a little bit each way a couple of times to see if you can free it up. Caution! DO NOT force the wheel as you could break it.
If the wheel on the toner cartridge is stuck, try another new toner cartridge. ( If you do not have another new toner cartridge available, an old toner cartridge or another cartridge from a working printer of the same model will also suffice for this test.)
Power the printer off and install the second toner cartridge. Then power the printer back on. If another toner cartridge clears up the 929 error, the printer is fine and the problem is with the toner cartridge.
If the error does not clear, there may be a problem with the printer.
If you narrow down the problem to the toner cartridge, call the point of purchase and explain the situation to them. They may have a replacement policy.
If you receive this error with a second toner cartridge, you may want to check if the Front Harness Cable is plugged into the Toner Sensor then Do the following:

Turn off the printer and remove the toner cartridge.
Look inside the printer at the place where the cartridge goes (on the right). You should see the Toner Sensor. On the back of the sensor assembly, you should be able to see a white cable connector.
Push this white cable connector into the toner sensor assembly by pushing the connector towards the front of the printer.
If you continue to receive the 929 error the final option is your printer will probably need service.

HP Laserjet M1522nf - displaying an "install black cartridge"


this error can be caused by a paper jam, or a little piece of paper in the toner area, Take the cartridge out and use a flashlight to check in the sides looking for paper. Other reason is that sometimes the sensor that detect the toner is out of place and in that case you can try to power cycle with the toner out before you install it again. Good luck

Toner sensor error


Hi


This error comes up when the printer detects that the toner of particular color is missing. This indicated that the indicated color toner is missing from the printer(eg-- C = Cyan, Y = Yellow, M = Magenta, K = Black).

C5150 may face a toner sensor error after installing used sets of toner cartridges and sometimes even after installing new toner cartridges as well. This error can be bypassed. This can be disabled by following these steps---

1. Turn machine on while pushing and holding the (+/-), menu buttons at same time.
2. Menu window will show OKI USER.
3. Scroll to Engine Dialog Mode is indicated Push Enter button.
4. Diagnostic Mode xx xx xx S Mode is indicated.
5. ( = 2 ) . Press (- or +) button until “ENGINE - PARAMETER SET =2” is displayed.
6. Push Enter button.
7. TONER SENSOR - ENABLE is displayed.
8. Push Enter button.
9. Press (- / +) TONER SENSOR = DISABLE is displayed.
10. Press ON LINE CANCEL buttons at same time.
11. (*) is displayed.
12. Restart the Printer.
