    thanks, that was helpful. I decided to replace both black & color since quality has been less than good. But I need instructions. I keep getting into loops trying to download user manuals for my samsung clp300.

If black is running out then just replace black.
I will need to know the make and model of the printer to help further.

Unable to remove black cartridge, it is really stuck. Help


I just changed my black toner this past week, and finally figured out why the cartridges get stuck like this.

First, you must eject the toner cartridge on the front-panel menu:
Menu->Replace Toner->Eject Toner->Black(K)

It will say "Rotating to Black Toner(K)" and then say "Black Toner(K) Ready to Eject"

Now, open the front panel and you'll see the black toner cartridge in front. You can also open the top panel if you want more light on your work area.

Lift the lock handle on the old toner cartridge to the "unlock" position, and here's the part that the Dell instructions don't have:

There are two channels for the toner cartridges -- one on each side. Run your finger down the channel on the right, and you'll feel a small, spring-loaded catch. This catch often gets sticky and won't release the cartridge without some help. Don't force it, but gently move it towards the back of the printer and it should release.

Now the old cartrdige should slide right out, and you can finish per the instructions that came with the new cartridge.

How do i install a toner chip on my hp Cp2025


They're called "toner cartridges."

- See the instructions that came with your printer, but here are the basics

The HP Color LaserJet CP2550 has 4 toner cartridges, one black and three color. Only one cartridge can be changed at a time. They are on a rotating carousel. So you first press the Rotate Carousel button until the cartridge you want to change is selected, then turn off the printer, open the top, pull out the old cartridge, put in the new (being sure it's the correct color), then pull off the tab that keeps the toner from leaking.

HP's toner cart installation instructions are at
http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00242813/c00242813.pdf

and the general manual is at
http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00242826/c00242826.pdf

toner cart stuff starts on page 12.

I have followed the instructions exactly for replacing the black toner cartridge on my Magicolor 2300 DL, but i still have the error message "Replace Toner Black." I tried taking out the cartridge and...


If you have changed the toner cartridge, the printer must complete a calibration cycle (up to 150 seconds). If you open the door before the Ready indicator on the control panel lights up and the Error indicator turns off, the printer stops and repeats the calibration cycle.

1. Open the Status Display (double-click on Status Display icon in the system tray on the lower right-hand portion of the task bar, OR click Start/Programs/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Utilities/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Status), and then check which toner color is empty.
2. From the Print menu choose Toner Replace...
3. In the Color list box, select the color of the toner cartridge to be replaced (CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW, or BLACK).
4. Select the capacity of the new toner cartridge (1500 or 4500).
5. Click OK.
6. When the toner indicator on the control panel starts flashing, open the printer's front door. The carousel is automatically repositioned so that the appropriate toner cartridge can be removed.

2300-1.gif8. Support the middle of the cartridge with your left hand, and then pull out the cartridge.
2300-2.gif9. Remove the new toner cartridge from its shipping carton.
10. Remove the protective cover clearly marked 'Remove'.
Each toner cartridge has a colored end that corresponds to a color inside the cartridge slots. Always install the toner cartridge in the slot of the same color.

Konika Minolta 2430 DL won't let me print


Look through the menus on the printer for a setting for "Low Toner" -- the choices of what to do are usually either "continue" or "stop" or something similar (my 2430DL has this option setting) -- set this option to "Continue".
My 15 year old HPs also have a similar setting. However, this will keep it printing when the black runs out, so you will need to check your print production run visually as you go along to make sure the quality is what you need

Hello, I have a Minolta Magicolor 2490 MF, printer/copier. The display shows "low toner". My question is this: Is it possible for the machine to identify the seperate toner levels, so I can replace only...


hi,
if it has a 4 toners which color are separated (the cyan, magenta, yellow and black) then you can replace a low toner one at a time. for example if the black color prompt you that it needs a replacement then you can put off the black toner without changing the other color not until such time it prompt you that it needs replacement. For replacing it I believe it has an instructional manual or if it's still under warranty you can ask assistance from your dealer to help you how.

Error Message/Black toner empty


Most all new color laser printers employ an RFID reader adjacent to each of the 4 tomer cartridges. There is a unique RFID chip inside (under a small blue slide cover) each toner cartridge. Whan a new toner cartridge is installed, the printer "knows" such and begins a "countdown" of the number of prints that are made which utilize the toner in each of the 4 cartridges. Once a toner cartridge has "processed" the predetermined number of copies you will get a warning that the cartridge is almost empty and must be replaced. After an additional predetermined number of copies are processed, the integral computer within the printer will shut down the printer until the cartridge is "replaced". If you simply "refill" the same or original cartridge and re-install it into the printer, the same RFID chip is in the cartridge and the computer will not reset the print "counter", allowing you to start printing. You have to obtain another couple of new or "re-filled" cartridges (of the same color or black) from an outside source. The printers' internal computer does not keep a complete running list of all of the RFID chips that have been installed and used in the printer (maybe 2 or 3) and then then it is "1st in / 1st out" of the limited RFID memory of the printer. I have been unable to obtain a "Service Manual" for the OKI C3400n printer to determine how to do a "hard reset" of the internal computer. I know there is a way which would allow the "refilling" of the toner cartridges without having to buy an additional 2 of each color.
