    I have the same problem with my C510 printer. Prints great in B&W. Even in the printer self test it won't print in color either which rules out driver issue. Checked all toner cartridges and they are ok. I hope there is a simple solution to this.

Seriously, buy a new printer. Companies sell toner, not printers! The printer is basically a "freebie" and is a marketing vehicle to sell toner. I tossed my C510 into the dumpster. It had four new toner cartridges. System diagnostics said that everything was at 95% or better. The printer had about 1600 prints on it. The first set of toner cartridges (full at purchase!) printed great. Then, I got dotted lines on clean prints. Or, I would get washed out, yellow tinted print and often, there was no black print. I called a printer repair shop and they laughed and told me to chuck the printer - they were suprised it lasted through the first set of cartridges. Lexmark literally "ignored me to death."

I will NEVER buy another Lexmark. The Brother and HP color lazers are probably the best bet. I have two HP B&W's that are paper pumps - an old 4V and a 6MP. The sad part is that I paid a bit more for the Lexmark than the competing HP. You live and then you learn!

In your printer's menu there is an option to go to strictly black and white under the color menu. Make sure that is set to color.

Hi i cannot print any documents ive typed with words or school information it keeps saying STATUS:TONER LOW ??


Based upon your question, which is a bit vague, you must have a laser printer. What the printer is telling you is it has insufficient toner (some incorrectly mis-state "toner" with "ink". Laser printer = Toner. Inkjet printer = ink) for the print job to occur. If you have a laser printer which prints in only black (black and white), then you can try this:
Black only: Open the toner access panel on your printer, remove the toner cartridge (it will easily pull out), and GENTLY shake the toner cartridge from side-to-side . What you're doing is allowing toner (ink?? It's more of a powder-like substance which consists of ground-up plastic) to shake evenly to the bottom of the cartridge. Then, put it back in. IMPORTANT: This will not work for long. You need to get a new toner cartridge soon!
Color: If you have a laser printer which can print in color (based upon your description, it sounds like this is NOT the case. If you have a color laser printer, it would display to you that a particular color is out of toner), then do the same thing as described above... but for EACH toner cartridge.
It still doesn't work: If this does not work, then you're out of toner (Ink... sigh). You MUST replace your toner cartridge which is out of toner. If there was another way to do it, I would tell you. When you're out, you're out.
Please let me know if you have any further questions by doing a REPLY to this answer. I'll be happy to help!

The printer marks an error with the color cartridge, i open it check it and still has ink, but still doesnt wanna print, what can i do? Its a lexmark x 2695


It could be that the color cartridge has gone bad now. Try to re-seat the color cartridge in the printer. And if that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working color cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue.

HP color laserjet 1600 wonte printe new toner color.


The supply status report is based on what the kill chip is reporting to the printer. If that particular color is not printing then it is likely that current is not flowing though a particular component in the cartridge. I would return the cartridge and get a replacement.

If you have changed the toner cartridge, the printer must complete a calibration cycle (up to 150 seconds). If you open the door before the Ready indicator on the control panel lights up and the Error indicator turns off, the printer stops and repeats the calibration cycle.

1. Open the Status Display (double-click on Status Display icon in the system tray on the lower right-hand portion of the task bar, OR click Start/Programs/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Utilities/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Status), and then check which toner color is empty.
2. From the Print menu choose Toner Replace...
3. In the Color list box, select the color of the toner cartridge to be replaced (CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW, or BLACK).
4. Select the capacity of the new toner cartridge (1500 or 4500).
5. Click OK.
6. When the toner indicator on the control panel starts flashing, open the printer's front door. The carousel is automatically repositioned so that the appropriate toner cartridge can be removed.

2300-1.gif8. Support the middle of the cartridge with your left hand, and then pull out the cartridge.
2300-2.gif9. Remove the new toner cartridge from its shipping carton.
10. Remove the protective cover clearly marked 'Remove'.
Each toner cartridge has a colored end that corresponds to a color inside the cartridge slots. Always install the toner cartridge in the slot of the same color.
