It goes in with the toner. The developer and toner mix in the cartridge. Empty the old out and put it in with the toner.
Good luck.

Take out the toner cartridge and shake it vigorously. When they sit for a long time the powder tends to clump.

Xerox Phaser 7750 The printer's black fades print after print and totally vanishes. I tried replacing Imaging Unit, Toner, cleaning by wand, etc.

If it is only happening in black then it has to be something prior to the toner reaching the transfer belt; such as toner, developer, imaging unit, or laser. It sounds like you've already cleaned the laser window, replaced the toner, and image unit, so I would inspect the developer. Remove the black image unit and use a flashlight to inspect how well toner is covering the magnetic roller on the developer. You may want to compare it to a developer of a working color to see if they look similar. Also, make sure there are no foreign objects near where the image units go. If an object came loose in there, the arm will not close correctly which could cause the image unit to not make contact with the developer. Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya.

Ricoh afficio 1045 & ricoh 450 toner is mixed in ricoh fw 780 now background and negative image is coming what can i do plz give some idea

firstly you need to remove the developer and vacume the developer unit and magnetic developer roller.
Put in new developer and correct toner in toner unit.
Call service...
After replacement there is a sequence wich needs to be done, for developer initialization.

I would like to know the difference between a starter and developer.How does a starter help?

Starter and Developer are eccentially the same thing or perform the same function. Starter is just a term typically used by Minolta and machines manufactured by Minolta. Starter/Developer is simply a component that acts as the carrier for the toner. Toner has no real magnetic properties so in some machines you need a way of getting the toner up to the drum surface. These machines use a magnetic roller and developer to perform this function. The Developer is like a metal powder that the toner mixes with. As it flows around the magnetic roller it carries the toner with it. Then an electrostatic charge on the surface of the drum "attracts" the toner away from the developer roller and onto the drum. That is a simplified answer to your question.
Thank You for using Fixya.

The error states that the 8825 is over-toned, too dark. The toner dispense and developing systems what the error is pointing to. Make sure your machine is on level floor.
First, Make sure the toner cartridge isn't damaged. Check for a toner. If the cartridge isn't spilling but there is a toner mess around the developer, then your developer may be old, and losing magnetism.
Second, clean the Pressure Equalizing tubes with a vaccuum cleaner, plus the Augers and Magnetic Roll.
You can also check that the sensor wires are connected and that there is not any gear damage, or incorrectly installed parts.
You may need to buy a Developer 005R00310, Main Board 160K75321, or Low Volt Power Supply 105K15863. You might be able to add the developer your self, but everything on this unit is expensive, so you may be better off getting an experienced technician to do the repair.

Dear Sir, We have canon xerox machine and our deler ask high cost for spares Ex. OPC - 6000, Tonar - 2350 also he told if you fefile your tonar it damege your machine due to this magnetic rod ,OPC can...

Please let me know the model of your machine. In general, if you are having print quality issues, such as lines dots or black patches, these are usually due to toner cartridge. Genuine Replacement of Toner cartridge is advisable.
However, you may get your toner cartridge re-filled, if its parts are working properly. Cartridge parts like OPC, PCR and magnetic roller can be replaced. Re-filling the toner is always cheaper and costs around 1/4th of the new toner price. So, check for the price of new toner and compare.

I have refilled/ refurbished toners myself and had no issues. Properly re-filled/ refurbished cartridge would NOT cause any damage to the printer. So, you may get your toner refilled by some good professional and it would work fine.

Hope it helps. Let me know if any clarifications are required!

Xerox phaser 6360 is ghosting. replaced transfer roller but no help thanks Bruce

Most common cause of this is the use of 3rd party toner. This isnt true for all printers but some of the newer Xerox are notorious for it as the 3rd party toners are not produced to the exact specs as xerox. If your not using genuin Xerox toner you have your cause.
If your mechanicaly savy you can completely dissasemble most of the printer in order to clean out the toner. Then start over with new Xerox toner cartridges. I have had to service 2 of these printers in this way, and both were like new when done.

How do you clean dried toner from colour developer units

Kyocera toner for the FS-C5015N is dry. If you have excess toner outside the developer use the cleaning cloth that comes with the toner kit.

Do not wipe the magnetic roller at the bottom of the developer. Along with the toner, the agent is on the roller. If the agent is removed the toner will fall out of the developer. There is agent in the toner container but not enough to replenish all of it if it has been wiped away.

Printing fault

What usually causes that problem is a bad roller in the developer housing. It builds up ink and will not set up correctly.
The second problem in that area is a bad toner dispenser.
I mostly suspect the developer housing donor roll is bad.

Problem with xerox Doc Centre 470ST

uwasbisi... It is not un-common for the Xerographic modules for these models to be defective right out of the box. I myself experience about a 50% DOA rate. You may want to try another one.

Before you do that though, try this...

Remove the xero-module and the toner cartridge. Look into the now empty compartment area's (you may need a flashlight), and directly above and center to the magnetic developer roll/housing (under where the toner cart was, and directly left of where the xero-mod was), there is a photo-sensor mounted to the toner/developer housing that faces the (now removed) xero-module. It is rectangular in shape. About 3/4" tall and 4" long. Clean it off with a dry lint-free rag thoroughly. Do not remove toner/developer from the face of the magnetic roller that faces the xero-module. Only clean this sensor above it.

This is the sensor that "reads" the toner density produced on the module during set-up, and if it's dirty (and it DOES get dirty considering it's location), it can cause the type of problem you are experiencing.


All that being said, there are many other issues that may be the culprit as well (from a bad stapler safety gate on a sorter, to power supply board problems). Are you getting any service/error codes (you should be) in conjunction with the service message? You can look under the "error history" under "machine status" to the right of the touch screen.

Let me know.
