Copier says replace toner cartridge but cartridge has been replac

We had 3 toner cartridges refilled at a local shop. It took two weeks for them to order some kind of chip. We installed the cartridge tonight and the copier still says we need to replace the toner cartridge. The shop is closed. We have many copies to make before a meeting tomorrow morning. Any ideas?

The "chip" was necessary to "reset" the electronics inside the refilled cartridges, to say that the cartridge has been refilled. Obviously, the chip did not properly do the "reset".

Your only hope: take the document, as a PDF file or a Microsoft Word document, copied to a USB memory-stick, to the local "big box" store, e.g., Staples, or Office Depot, and let them read the file from the stick, and print onto their printer.

Why i get black streaks on paper in laser printer prints?


there are some possibilities for this problem. i will explain it. 1) First of all check out if the toner is full ,half or near to empty. There is no exact procedure to check the powder left in the toner without opening the toner.but in one toner there comes about near to 1500 copies.if you have got about 1200 to 1300 copies.then its quite possible that the power left is near to empty so the streaks comes on the paper due to less powder left.many times in this case removing and shaking the toner then reinserting the toner again and checking the printout helps. 2) But if you are sure that toner is not empty then other possibility is.in the toner cartridge there is a aluminium drum.its easily seen in the cartridge.once you remove the cartridge. if that drum is got very much used then due to that drum the streaks appear.fox example.if the drum is new the print is very dark.if the drum gets old the print gets very light or with streaks or faded print. 3) Now if drum and toner powder both are proper and still the problem then its the fault in the printer.in your printer there is some toner powder got spilled out on the inner parts from where the printing paper passes.so when the paper passes from the part where the powder is fallen or got collected then the streaks comes.in this case the printer needs internal cleaning and servicing. 4) but in some cases it has been noticed that internal powder of the toner becomes moist and very hard to come out from the toner for printing.in this case either toner needs to be refilled or toner needs to be replaced.you can get the toner refilled from local cartridge refilling store or local stationery shops dealing in cartridge refillings.The cartridge refilling shops also have the same printer for checking the cartridge.so at the refilling shop it will be confirmed whether the fault is in cartridge or printer.
This will help. Thanks .

I have replaced toner cartridge in HP laserjet 4 si. Now I have toner smears down the left side, about a 32nd inch in.


I don't normally say "call the manufacturer" but if it's a genuine HP cartridge (not another brand, and not refilled) call 1-800-HP-Invent and they'll walk you through a few steps, and if the cartridge is defective they'll send you a new one.
The toners have an out of the box warranty, so if you took the toner out of the box 3 weeks ago, it's still under warranty.

Are you having your cartridges refilled?
By "replace TD cartridge" message do you mean the little stack of 6 red dots on the control panel?
The sensor for this condition is contained within the toner cartridge. The sensor reads the mixture of developer to toner ratio and tells the machine to add toner when needed. If you are having this problem with 3 different toner cartridges then I would suspect the toner add drive system. If you are having just the 1 cartridge refilled and have had the problem with the last 3 refills then the cartridge itself may be the problem.
I'll let you repond then we will see if further info is required.
Thank You for using Fixya.

How to refill toner or replace drum?


Most of these cartridges come as a refurbished cartridge. They cost about $109 US. Toner would be as much or more (but two fills) if you can find a supplier. A cartridge is about 30,000 pages so it is an EXCELLENT buy. I use laser for this very reason. Bought any 1000 page inkjet refills lately at $75?

My Minolta Magicolor 2500W printer indicates that it is out of black toner. I have never changed the toner cartridge before and cannot find the instruction manual. (bought it almost 3 years ago...) Do I...


Firstly buy a black toner refill and a "CHIP". The chip is a small printed circuit carrying a chip, mounted on the top right hand corner of the toner cartridge held in by a small cross point screw. Remove the cartridge and looking at the right end you will see a round (About 3/4 inch dia) plastic bung. Lift this bung out and carefully refill the cartridge (The refill supplier will probably clarify this I am saying). Replace the bung, clean up all the messy dust and remove the old chip replacing it with the new one. Make sure you dont lose the little screw and insert it fully without over turning it. Thereafter all should be OK.

Magicolor 2400w color low. how to allow printing in black without need to replace the color toner? I mean, i only need to print in black only so at the moment i can ignore the color low warning.


its not possible as whast u required.because all the cartridges should be shown full for printing whether you use the colour or dont use.
but you can get your cartridges refilled at any local stationery shop or at the local refilling center.
and this will not cost u as new cartridges.its exactly less then half cost of new cartridges.

thanks.

HL-4040CN don't show or read new refilled magenta cartridge.


If you have removed and reinstalled the magenta cartridge several times, it is very likely the cartridge is defective out of the box. If you have another magenta cartridge, put that one in and see if the problem resolves. I'm betting it will. If that second cartridge does work, then return the defective cartridge to where you purchased it - they should replace it without a hassle.
