ADD TONER BLACK

Hello,
I have 3 AP3800C printers - all of them say add toner black, even when i replace with a brand new original black cartridge.

I have tried blowing the pipes through and executed forced toner but have had no success.

Hope you can help

    thanks, but we've tried all that - the closest we've come to getting them going is replacing the PCU but the problem soon arises again after twenty or so prints. we've stripped the thing and blown the pipes through (which had worked in the past) but nothing!! it seems strange that it happens to so many of our printers. 3 out of seven of them have done it.

If the toner is an original you should not have a problem unless the Developer unit is faulty. The developer unit mixes the toner with the dev. If the dev unit TD (Toner Density) sensor is not working then it will not add toner. Try the following.

  • Remove black drum unit
  • Remove Black Developer unit
  • Tap the develop unit and shake side to side 5-6 times
  • Reinstall both units close covers and open toner cover
  • wait 15 seconds then close the cover
Hopefully then you will add toner if not the likely thing is that the developer unit will need replacing.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

My cartridge is full of toner but the printer says it needs to be replaced, how do i reset the cartridge?


You can't. The toner levels are calculated and approximated. Make sure you use genuine Kyocera toner and replace it.

Open the front door and close it and check if the display reads loading toner. Try this for 3 times.
If Add toner indicator is still there, check that you had removed the black cap of the toner, before you replaced the toner bottle.
Remove the bottle from the holder and check inside the neck of the holder if there is something blocking the toner supply. (sometimes the inner plastic cap of the previous toner is stucked in the neck).
Check and clean the toner bottle holder unit.
Another problem can be worn gears in the lower development unit and within the dev. bias roller.
Good luck and please rate me, thanks.
