If you look at your toner cartridge you should be able to see a clear plastic circle. That's part of the toner level mechanism. I've gotten a few more prints out of my cartridges by putting a piece of tape over the clear plastic and coloring it black with a sharpie. However, there are other mechanisms used to gauge toner levels, and this will not be a permanent fix.
I've also gotten a little more life out of it by simply shaking the toner cartridge for about 15 minutes. It helps coat the inside and might break up chunks inside the cartridge itself.
Brother printers are known for this problem. They tell you that toner is empty based on sensors and not based on actual toner left. A way around this is to take out the toner and look on the sides of it. There should be a hole on each side (one that has clear plastic over it). These holes are used for the sensors. Take some electrical tape (or any dark tape) and tape over those holes. Once they are tapped over the sensors think there is toner. Put the toner back in and enjoy.
I am not familiar with this model but usually Canon waste bottle has:
1. Check if the waste toner botlle has some clear portion near the neck, (as in IRC3200) or other part of the bottle ,even the waste toner was removed but if this portion is still clouded by toner the sensor will still detect the waste is full
2. If the situation is not like this some Canon Ir machine needs to reset waste toner counter in the service program mode even the waste toner bottle was emptied
If you losen the lower right cover of your machine you will find the bottel there.
This lower right cover you will find on the right side of the machine,it is the lower small cover.There is only one skrew to losen,remove the cover and then the bottle.Empty the bottle and put it back.
I just got done replacing my toner. You'll need to change toner and most likely all of them. There is no other solution. I refill mine by buying the bottle toners. It can be messy and you'll need to take some parts off the cartridge to get to the opening plug and reset the lever so that the printer knows the cartridge is full. It is cheaper than buying a toner. The cartridge has a life of about three refills. Anyway hope this answers your problem.
hey, the problem is that toner cartridge reading chip is dirty. take out Pc drum and remove all toners, clean toner chips with alcohol. then locate a 3 pin reading chip under the toner rack left side and use pressure air to clean it. reinstall everything. if its not helping, replace the chip, its not expencive
Too few manufacturers will allow their units to print in grayscale when a color toner is low or empty. The only way to get your unit working is by installing the required toner. By the way, start a budget to buy the transfer belt, drum unit, waste toner bottle and fuser unit. These are also consumables with a lifecycle.
