Re: empty toner

Some people have had problems with the toner-count not resetting when installing a new cartridge because they did not turn the printer OFF while installing the cartridge. Re-install the cartridge with the printer OFF and see if that helps.

Re: empty toner

Usually new toners come sealed, you need to pull off this plastic seal. once installed shake it a little in case toner is clomped together

The printer samsung scx-452f cannot print out fax in,it shown on screen as memory receive

you have received faxes, but they can't be print until you replace toner because probably you have TONER EMPTY message also on the display.
You can buy only fuse for toner cartridge (25mm, 250V/ 0,063A or 0,1A and maximum 0,125A)
When you pull out toner cartridge you will see the glass fuse on the front left side of the cartridge.
The new fuse will reset toner empty condition

Are you sure it was a full NEW toner cartridge?? Not an old one you had lying around.
If it was a new one the next question line goes as follows.... the machine will say in the display to "Rplace toner soon"...that dosn't mean its empty and to replace it..that means itsLOW and you should have a new toner cartridge "on-hand" because it will soon stop printing and say "REPLACE TONER". At that time the toner cartridge should be replaced, when it is installed a "fuse" on the cartridge blows and resets the toner light on the display. If you installed the toner cartridge when the display was saying "replace toner soon" you have blown the fuse in the new cartridge, now the machine has run about another 100 copies and says "replace toner"....but you now can't reset the light because the fuse is already blown because you may have replaced the cartridge too early!!! WHAT CAN YOU DO if that is the can replace the fuse on the cartridge..its pretty easy to see, just replace it with another mini-fuse of the same rating written on the existing fuse..then put the cartridge in again..the fuse will blow, reset the light and away you will go. When all else fails read the operators manual.

Toshiba E-Studio 202L cartridge does not match manufacture

Did you replace the waste (used) toner cartridge or the empty toner cartridge? These copiers have 2 "cartridges" .... one is waste (used) toner, the other is "new" toner for copying / printing etc. Some newer copiers have All in One units....Drum, New Toner, Waste (used) Toner. If you replaced the Waste Toner container (or dumped it) that should reset the code or error message.

Emptying waste tone cartridge

You need to replace the waste toner bottle (packaged with a new toner cartridge) you can't just empty it. There is a photo sensor that "reads" through a window of the waste bottle. The sensor could be dirty. Clean the slits with a q-tip.
