The percentage-of-available-toner is based on calculations made by the printer's internal software -- quite different from putting a measuring-stick into an above-ground oil-tank to determine the ACTUAL level.
So, while the calculations say "zero percent left", there still is some toner inside the toner-cartridge, and so it still prints.
Buy a replacement cartridge. When you finally do run-out of toner, install the new cartridge.
Compare it to buying a new quart of milk, and then using the last 1/8 of the quart of the milk currently inside your refrigerator -- use the "old" milk until it is 100% gone, and then switch to the "new" milk.
Replace empty toner with new one or with refill cartridge toner. Before installing it, clean the inside with a vacuum cleaner so that dust and toner particle spread inside will gone. Thanks for asking.
Hi, Thanks for writing to Fixya.com. Please try to remove toner cartridge first . Next shake it properly to have the ink distributed evenly . Next plug in and make give a self test print. If it still gives you the error lights with half page printouts then for sure you need to change new toner cartridge to make sure that the problem is not with printer itself. . Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.
Ignoring the Toner Empty Message
When the toner cartridge is empty, the machine shows a “Toner Empty”
message and stops printing.
You can set the machine to ignore the message when it displays and to
continue printing the pages.
1 Press Menu until “Machine Setup” appears on the display.
2 Press the scroll button ( or ) until “Ignore Toner” appears on the
bottom line and press Enter.
3 Press the Scroll button ( or ) to select “On” or “Off.”
Select “On” to ignore the Toner Empty message.
Select “Off” to stop printing when the message appears. This is the
4 Press Enter to save the selection.
The way that cartridge works is by a fuse. When you first install it the printer calibrates itself to the new cartridge and blows the fuse.
look for a blown fuse in your fax. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace.
Anyway, if the printer senses an improper toner/developer balance it will default to XXXX copies and give you the message. You can to reset the machine - this might help.
