I have a C5100n printer that uses the same toner cartridges, etc. I have had this printer for over 5 years and it has held up quite well. Sometimes the LED sensor gets out of alignment and doesn't register the black toner correctly. The sensors are the bars that hang from the top cover. When it happens on my machine, I merely "gently" wobble the sensor back and forth with my finger and then close the lid. Generally that takes care of the problem for me. Hope this helps.

All 3 Error lights are flashing (4 if you count the GO button)!!


When all lights flash it's a service problem. You press and hold the go button and see what lights are on then.error light means main PCB failure, Toner light means fuser failure, drum light means laser failure. Toner and error light means main motor error, drum plus error light means its a fan failure.

Replaced K toner and machine is telling me there is no toner in it.


There are sensors along the inside right wall that tell the unit if there is a K cartridge inserted. Usually what happens is that due to a toner spill, the sensor LED is covered with toner and or is bad . Hence it does not see the K cartridge. This happens mostly with the black or K cartridge. Get some compressed air and lightly shoot some into the hole that corresponds to the K cardtridge. Only in the hole, do not spray the air anywhere else in the printer.
If this does not clear it up, you would need to replaced the sensor board which is held in with 12 springs!
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Toner sensor error on an Oki C3520 Laser


Check the little switch/door on the right hand side of the drums.
This has worked successfully for me.

Symptom:
After replacement of a C3530 Image Drum, the message, "Toner Sensor Error" is displayed.

Cause:
The plastic shutter in the ID is fully or partially covering the toner sensor window.




Resolution:
Move the cover upward to allow for the sensor to become fully exposed prior to reinstalling the drum.

543k toner sensor error


Your indication regarding the 100% does not necessarily indicate a damaged chip (sensor).
Many chips do not work by actually sensing the toner but by usage or other tricks.
We cannot be sure about what happened but replacing the drum and affected items
should solve the problem. Needed parts may be found at
