Question about Sharp AR-207 Copier

Toner light continues to flash and copier won't print

I just remanufactured the toner cartridge for the AR207 and replaced the chip. Upon putting it back into the machine the toner light continued to flash. And the LED read Check Display Panel. I removed the toner cartridge and thinking I had a possible bad chip I replaced the chip again.
The situation remained unchanged. I have tried several reset codes and they will not work either. I read on the Forums here that there could be an issue with the Scanner unit that is causing this error to reoccur. Just trying to get confimation on this before I call for service.
Any other ideas what might be going on here, or is that the most likely situation?

Re: Toner light continues to flash and copier won't print

Hi, your problem won't be scanner related, if it were it would a separate error code. I have never bothered with reman cartridges, purely for this problem, the money saved is not enough if you have problems. I would try a genuine toner cart (probably cheaper then calling an engineer out).

Let me know how you get on.

How do I clean the toner

Sounds like a poor quality toner was put in your cartridge. If you are using remanufactured cartridges see your remanufacturer for a replacement. If you are using OEM cartridges contact Brother directly and they can sort out the issues and supply replacement cartridges.

HP Color Laserjet Cp2025n Printer - driver says it's out of toner and won't print. No true. I put in new toner cartridge last week. How do I get it toreceognize the new toner?

Did you purchase a new OEM HP toner or a refilled or remanufactured toner. It is possible that the chip is bad on the cartridge in which case if it is a true HP cartridge have them replace it. If you purchased 3rd party go after the vendor to replace it.

You need to clean the ink cartridge. Check for software on you computer under programs. You could also put some rubbing alcholol on a parer towel and lightly rub the print heads clean.

Do the reset chips really work on the cartridges of HP 2500N laserjet printer

Yes, reset chips really work on laser printer cartridges, if you have a know good source for the chips and if you know what your doing, you can't put a new chip on an old cartridge, the chip is what registeres how may prints you will get out of the cartridge if you put a new chip on an old or 1/2 empty cartridge of course it will say it's full but then try and print.It will register as a full cartridge but it can only print with the amount of toner that is actually left in the cartridge, be careful there are alot of remanufactures out there that don't put new chips on or that do but don't fill the cartridge full, or replace all the wipers and drums, they just dump some toner in and say here you go, Only buy your remanufactured cartridges from a reputable company, do your research on them first or you'll be sorry

Is there a override function to keep printing when toner alerts are on?Wondering since black still shows 30%.

These printers will still print when any or all of the toners are LOW, but if any one of them is EMPTY (according to the chip on the toner cartridge) printing stops.

Standard capacity toners ere 2000 page for the colours, and 3000 page for the black, so they can soon be used up.

Much cheaper per page printed, if you use the high capacity cartridges (6000 page for the colours, and 8000 page black).

There are high quality remanufactured cartridges available now, as good as OEM, and typically you'll get a Hi Capacity Remanufactured cartridge for the same sort of price as a Std Capacity OEM cartridge.

As a short term solution at a lower cost than replacement cartridges, you could just replace the cartridge CHIP. The printer would then think the toner was full (there'll likely to still be some toner in it), so you'll be able to print. Don't run the printer like this for ever though, as the toner has some lubricant properties, and with a TRULY EMPTY cartridge, you'll eventually do some damage to the cartridge, and then possibly the transfer belt (and you don't want to be changing that until it's rated 100,000 page life is up.

Lexmark e250dn printer, toner light is flashing, new cartridge

Could be photoconductor at end of life.

You shoul still be able to do a printer test print (press the arrow button).

Look on the printed pagesfor Toner AND Photoconductor.

These show as OK when new or very low count, and 100% when fully used.

If the toner is showing as 100% when you've just replaced it, either the chip is faulty, the wrong one, or if the cartridge is a remanufactured one possibly nor been replaced.

First and 4th yellow lights stay on

You should still be able to do a printer test page (press the arrow button).

Look at the printed page(s) for the Photoconductor AND the Toner.

They show as OK when new (or very low count), and 100% when fully used.

It IS ossible that the toner cartridge has a faulty (or if a remanufactured cartridge - un replaced) chip.

Some 'after market' chips are not compatible with E250, and it IS possible that your replacement cartridge is for an E350, or E450 (which have different chips, and some of the poorer remanufacturers , and some reselers that don't do these very often don't know).

It could even be a Dell 1720 chip on the cartridge.

I make around150 Dell 1720, 20 E450, 50 E350 cartridges a month and only around 5 E250s, so this gives you an idea of the relative numbers, in the market

Samsung clp-510n printer

1 Could be toner on the contacts (inside the printer) that mate with the contacts on the cartrdige.

2 Are you sure they are 510 toners and not 500 ones ?? 510 toners have a chip that identifies the cartridge (Colour, Capacity) and maintains a count of the pages printed.
500 toners have a reset fuse that resets the toner counter in the printer, and a resitor that identifies the capacity

3 Are they new cartridges, remanufactured, or 'home refiled'.
if either of the later two, were the chips replaced ? - if not the cartridge still thinks it has printed its full life of pages.
