Question about Lexmark C500n Laser Printer
How can we reset the toner level for this printer cartridges.
As i'm sure you already know the error means -
Laser power is lower than the output limit.
It's probably due to a bad contact on the engine board. If you would like the service manual it can be downloaded from the following link free of charge http://www.eserviceinfo.com/equipment_mfg/Lexmark_22.html any problems come back to me.

I found a fix for this! Take the cartridge out. On each side of it there is a hole (I believe that this is a sensor...) place a small piece of electrical tape over these holes. Place cartridge back in.... no more error! But I would go out and get some toner soon though!

If you open your printer front and pull out all the toner cartridges, on the left, you will see 4 LED lights vertically in a column that match up with 4 matching red light receptor sensors on the right side. Each toner cartridge has a tiny window on each side. When the toner powder level drops below the window level, a light passes all the way through the cartridge from the LED light to the light receptor and trips the printer to display the low toner warning.
The goal is to BLOCK THE LIGHT. The easiest way is to put electrical tape over the window on the right side of each cartridge window. To ensure you have the proper hole, just shine a flashlight in the hole and you will see the reflection from the tiny plastic window.
