Replaced toner and maintenance kit -keep getting yellow lights on exclamation and toner


If the toner and the exclamation lights are blinking yellow after replacing the toner and maintenance kit, then you will need to reset the photoconductor counter. But if the exclamation and the toner lights are steady on yellow, then that means there is something wrong with the toner.

How can you reset a brother HL-5170DN with out the password either with it connected via USB or ethernet i cannot remember my password


You'll need to reset your printer to factory settings. BE SURE TO PRINT A CONFIGURATION PAGE FIRST.

VIA THE PRINTER CONTROL PANEL
  1. Switch the printer off.
  2. Make sure that the front cover is closed and the power cord is plugged in
  3. Hold down the Go button as you switch the printer on. All the LEDs light up. Keep the button pressed down until the Toner LED lights. When the Toner LED lights, release the Go button.
  4. Hold down the Go button until the Yellow Status LED lights. When the status LED lights, release the Go button.
  5. When all the LED's light, the printer will start warming up. The print server has now been reset to its factory defaults.

Xerox phaser 7300 toner cartridge problems


Hi,
Sometimes on this machine as there is a lot of loose toner around it can cover over the sensors in the machine, what I would advise is to remove all the toner cartridges and check for the copper contacts on both the machine and under the imagining unit (which the toner is placed in). Once you have cleaned that away slowly close the lid and reboot the machine and it should return to normal. Its just toner getting caught up in the sensors. Follow the instructions below, when you remove the unit, lift it over your head to find the copper contacts and clean them, be careful not to spill toner everywhere. Good luck!

Reseating the imaging unit
    Remove the toner cartridge:
  1. Open the top cover.
    openthetop196x185.gif
    caution_image88x30.gif The imaging units are sensitive to light. Do not expose the imaging units to light any longer than necessary to remove it and cover it. Failure to follow these instructions may damage the imaging units.
  2. Identify the color of the toner cartridge to be replaced (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow or Black).

  3. Move the orange lever on the toner cartridge to the right so that it unlocks.

  4. Lift on the back side of the toner cartridge first, then guide the cartridge out of the printer.

  5. Set the toner cartridge on paper to avoid any toner spilling.

    Reseat the imaging unit:
  6. Lift the imaging unit straight up out of the printer.

  7. Line up the guide pins with the printer's frame and lower the imaging unit back into the printer.

    Reinstall the toner cartridge:
  8. Install the toner cartridge by guiding the front onto the new imaging unit first then lowering the back.

  9. Move the orange lever on the toner cartridge to the left so it locks.

  10. Clean the LEDs with the supplied wipe.
