Question about Epson AcuLaser C900 Printer

1 Answer

Toner fitted incorrectly

When I switch my printer on it comes up with the error, toner incorrectly fitted. I reinstall the offending colour and sometimes it starts and other times it comes up with the same error but on another colour. Eventually it starts up and runs ok until the next time I want to print when I go through the procedure again. Sometimes I have to go through all the colours and sometimes only one or two. Can you help please.

Aaaaah

hi jeff, this is a minor repeatable bug yet a great nuisance that will be fully fixed by good house keeping. Simple ABC...

1. Remove All the toners

2. with a spotlight have a look at the far end of the toner cartridge holder drum, i.e peep through the hole left blank after removing the toners.: go through one to the other whilst brushing off dust with a long paint brush. Pay particular attention to the springy looking metal parts deep at the end. (responsible for sensing the toners)

3. On all the toners themselves wipe clean all the metallic parts

this should sought you out 100%

However if you fail or rather you want an overhaul - remove the toners,photoconductor and transferunit. then give your printer a serious blow using the ordinary blower.

Error is non genuine toner


Use genuine toner when refill. If it was refilled by a service, they use incorrect tones.
If message is incorrect and the toner is the correct, your printer has come electronic problem and should be repaired.

Toner error


With very few exceptions, modernprinters need a full set of cartridges to even try and print.

the reasons for this are not quite an sinister as you may think. Many printers use a little colour and them finally apply black to create a very deep shade of black. printers also periodically do small cleans, checks and calibrations to keep the printer running as efficiently as possible. In order for many of these to be performed they need a cartridge of each colour to avoid damage etc.

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.

Printer is coming up with id mismatch after putting new toner cartridge in goes away when old one is put back in?


The toner for the 9035 has a 'chip' to identify the toner is correct for the 9035, ie the toner is the correct manufacturer and model.
If you are getting the "ID Mismatch" error you either;
  1. Have a faulty chip on the new toner cartridge, I guess the best option would be to go back to the supplier.
  2. The toner cartridge is a copy / refill etc and has the wrong chip fitted, again going back to the supplier would be the best option.
  3. Locate the contact for the chip on the new toner cartridge and ensure these are clean from any toner dust etc which may prevent incorrect contact with the printer.

The printer is giving me service error E527 what can be done to overcome this error


Hi Good day!!!

This error message "Service Req E527" means that the toner carousel housing the toner cartridges is obstructed, or is unable to rotate correctly. It can be caused by installing a toner cartridge incorrectly.

Solution 1:Check that the toner cartridge at the front of the printer is installed correctly.

Solution 2: Manually remove all of the toner cartridges.
Close all the covers, and then power the printer off.Open Cover B, and then remove the photo conductor unit (PCU).Turn the toner carousel by hand to line up a toner cartridge with the front of the printer.Open Cover A.If the toner cartridge is not in position to remove it, close Cover A and repeat the steps above.Remove the toner cartridge, and then close Cover A.Repeat all the steps above until you have removed all four toner cartridges.Reinstall the PCU.Close all the covers, and then power on the printer.Open Cover A and Cover B.Check thoroughly for any jammed paper, foreign objects or damaged parts.If you can locate an obstruction, remove it. Then, close all the covers and restart the printer again. If you can identify any damaged parts, there is an obstruction you cannot remove, or there is no change after restarting the printer, then contact Epson for further advice.Reinstall the toner cartridges (Follow the prompts on the LCD display), and then test the printer.

On Initialization the following error appears 10.00.01 Supply Memory Error.


The printer cannot read the memory tag on the black toner catridge. Power the printer off, swop the black toner cartridge for another colour.ie put the cyan, magenta or the yellow in the place that the black should go and fit the black in to space left by the colour. Power the printer on and see if the error remains the same.If it's the same error then it could be the cartridge reader in the black position.If the error changes, then it's possibly down to the black cartridge.

Fatal Error 17H - toner cartridges will not advance


Open the front door and remove the toner bottle.

Look near the colour toner carts and you will see a small round hole. Jam a screwdriver in that hole and the carousel will rotate freely. Move the carousel round and remove each toner one at a time.
