    Turn on Copier. warms up. hear noise like gear slipping, power reduces and indicator switches between L and 1. No buttons function. Open side door and fromt door remove toner cartridge and drum. Replace and close doors

    Same thing, flashes between L and 1.

The "L" light indicates that the "scan head locking system" is in the lock position. It is located under the document glass (where the copies are dispensed) just turn it from the lock to the unlock position and it should reset the light

Mx2300 write code f2-70 after replacing the black cartridge

F2-70 is indicating an improper toner cartridge K.
If you have just changed the black toner cartridge & the error appeared then the new toner is at fault.
Replace the toner cartridge with another cartridge, turn the machine off & back on & the machine should reset.
Hope this helps.

How to Use Cosmetic Dentistry to Create a More Youthful Appearance

These days there's an increasing emphasis on retaining a youthful appearance which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it can require a bit of work and in some cases a little extra help. It's impossible to stop the aging process but there are lots of different things you can do to create a more pleasing appearance.

One good place to start is your smile and the reason why is because people will often judge others on the look of their teeth. If your teeth are heavily discolored or stained, crooked or even missing then it could make you look much older than you really are. In contrast, a nice white healthy smile with evenly aligned teeth is associated with youthfulness and additionally, it shows you care about your appearance.

This can help you in your professional and personal life, especially as people often make up their minds about others within just a few seconds of meeting them. Another thing to consider is that good dental care will also help to protect your teeth and potentially your general health. Your oral health and your overall health are closely linked so investing in the appearance of your teeth could be more beneficial than you imagine.

Where to Start?
If you are interested in rejuvenating the appearance of your teeth, then set a little time aside to consider how you'd like to change your smile. You might even want to write down a few things that particularly irritate you. Next, armed with this information you can book your appointment with your cosmetic dentist as they will want to discuss your aims and desires for your new smile.

They will also closely assess your dental health to make sure any treatment suggested is appropriate and safe. Some people like to cut out photographs showing people with teeth that appeal to them. While this is okay if you want to give your dentist a rough idea of what you'd like to achieve, it's worth considering that what's right for someone else may not suit your facial features or skin tone.

A good cosmetic dentist will make sure whichever treatments are recommended will be customized just for you, uniquely suiting your facial features and enhancing your appearance. Once your dentist has assessed your dental health then they can devise a treatment plan based on their findings, your budget, and your aims and desires. They should take the time to sit down with you to discuss this treatment plan and to explain exactly how any proposed treatments will improve your smile and potentially your dental health.

Treatments that may be suggested include teeth whitening, dental bonding and recontouring, porcelain veneers, crowns and bridges, and dental implants and orthodontics. Before you go to see your cosmetic dentist, it can be a good idea to read a brief overview about each of these treatments as this will help you ask the correct questions while in your dental clinic and will help you come to the right decision about which treatments will be best for you.

One of the main complaints that people have about the appearance of their teeth is that they are discolored which is where teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and dental bonding can help. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments but is best done professionally either in your dental office or using a custom-made home whitening kit. The reason why a professional whitening treatment is so much better is that it's safer for your teeth.

Your dentist will only prescribe tooth whitening after examining your teeth because it cannot be safely done on an unhealthy mouth that has signs of tooth decay or gum disease. A tooth whitening treatment in your local dental practice can take as little as an hour whereas a customized home whitening kit needs to be used for a couple of weeks to gain optimum results.

Porcelain veneers are another option and can be used to correct the color of teeth, their shape, size and even their alignment. This treatment may help you if you have just one or two teeth slightly out of line or unsightly gaps in between them.

With dental veneers, it's necessary for your dentist to prepare the teeth to be veneered, removing a tiny amount of the front surface as this will help create a more natural appearance that doesn't feel at all bulky. Your porcelain veneers will be custom-made to fit your teeth, covering up minor flaws to create a more cosmetically appealing smile. They will be bonded firmly onto your teeth and should last 10 years or more.

Dental bonding uses the same tooth-colored composite resin used to fill your teeth and is ideal if you have minor chips or cracks in one or two teeth, or if a tooth has become slightly worn or is discolored. The composite resin is applied directly to the front surfaces of your teeth before being shaped, smoothed and polished.

Once finished the resin will have a natural luster and should last for several years. This treatment can work well in conjunction with another process called recontouring, where your dentist will remove minimal amounts of your tooth enamel to shape your tooth, so it looks more appealing.

Crowns and bridges can be made from all-ceramic materials and are ideal for protecting badly damaged teeth or for replacing teeth that are missing. The materials used to create modern crowns and bridges are extremely sophisticated so if you have any older restorations, replacing these could enhance your smile while protecting your dental health.

Orthodontics is a treatment that may be suggested to you if you have teeth that are significantly out of place. Advanced orthodontic systems include Invisalign that uses nearly invisible aligners to reposition your teeth. Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean which can help improve your dental health.

Dental implants are the ultimate way to replace missing teeth, consisting of titanium alloy posts inserted directly into your jawbone to artificially replace your natural tooth roots. This treatment has already helped many people worldwide using tried and tested techniques. With the proper care, dental implants are a long-term solution for tooth loss.

Once you have your beautiful new smile, don't forget to look after it with regular professional dental care. This will help it look its best at all times.

Canon error code E000066-0002


You should look at the 4 sensors behind the grey front plate, behind the front door, toner fall from hopper assembly on it and cause these codes ( each color cause a different code ), you should order a modified cable guide that protect sensors from toner and replace it after cleaning these sensors.

If the error code still appear you should change the toner supply motor ( each color have a different code ) or the PCB relay Kit (if i remember well you should also verify somme connectors on this PCB that can cause this problem)

We replaced the toner and it is still saying "toner life end replace toner cartridge." and we can't get it to print or fax or copy

I have a brother mfc 7840w

I first used the electrical tape trick and that worked for a while. Then got the toner low message again. I then tried the *00 trick, which works as follows:

1. lift lid and open front cover
2. press clear/back. "Replace Drum?" will appear on the screen.
3. Press "*00" it will then read accepted and the toner low error (End of Toner Life) should go away.
4. close it all up and your done.

Konica minolta error

I had the same problem and found that one of the toner cartridges must have not been seated properly. I removed the black toner cartridge and re-fitted it. The printer now works fine again with no errors. 17H is a code relating to a fault in the rotation ......... possibly one or more toner cartridges need checking. Use the menu on the printer to turn it to the appropriate position (i.e. engine menu then select replacement of whichever toner you are checking).
Hope this fixes your as well.
