Sir/Mam, turn the machine off. Remove the toner bottle. Then turn the machine on with no bottle inside let it do its thing when the machine indicates install the toner bottle correctly. Have you had the developer change recently which is located in the drum unit? If so was the counters cleared and F8 run in service mode? You Also sensor which monitors the toner in the drum unit may be bad.

Toner add system is clogged. These machines take toner from the bottle and dumps it into a chamber. This chamber has a level sensor that tells the machine to rotate the bottle in oder to add toner. This is why you can see a spiral "flute" going around the toner bottle. Toner is added to the Imaging Unit from the toner chamber when needed by an auger running from the chamber thru 2 90 degree turns. If the machine runs trying to add toner you normally can hear the small motor and auger spinning. It makes sort of like a reer reer noise. When the bottle rotates it will make a thump thump noise. I know this all sounds funny but this is what is happening when the machine is adding toner. Now if you are hearing the reer reer noise at least that means it is trying to add toner. Don't put a lot of emphasis on it, just letting you know what is suppose to happen. If you hear both noises together and the machine runs for a few minutes before shutting down then it is not getting toner out of the bottle.
The long and short of it is that if you have the correct toner in the machine, and the seal was removed properly from the bottle then it should get toner unless there is a clog somewhere.

Why is it indicating black toner is empty?


[Cause]
This may be caused by the Toner ID switch, that contacts the ID PWB on the Toner Bottle. The Toner ID switch has 4 wire contacts, if one of the contacts become crossed over this error may occur.

[Action]
Uncross and straighten the contacts.
If issue remains replace ID Chip Connector Harness [Part Number: G102 1120].

What is the reason for giving me a error called AP?


Toner is being replenished inside the copier. Wait a few minutes. * Although the lamp under the platen may remain lit while "AP" is displayed, it is not a problem.
also try taking out toner cartridge and shaking it a few times,
it may be clumped up or empty.

Lanier 6720 U14 error on screen


U14 is a user code for waste toner full.
Open front cover and you will see a clear plastic bottle at the bottom of the machine; lift this out and dispose carefully of waste toner (do not reuse). When fitting back into machine, make sure that inside of bottle is clean as the detection sensor looks through the bottle to see if it is empty and if toner is covering inside of bottle, the message will remain.

Put in new toner now the toner light wount go off


Some copiers have a waste toner bottle, that needs to be emptied from time to time. They some times look the same as the add toner. I don't know what kind of copier you have. You also may have run the toner so low that it can not replenish it fast enough to catch up. You may need to have the developer replaced

Canon Copier Model C122F - error light flashing


A common mistake is that people think that the waste toner needs to be emptied and instead the toner needs to be replaced --- and vice versa. Check to make sure that the toner bottle is not empty. Also, if you made copies that took ( used ) more toner then the machine was able to replenish, the machine has not had a chance to catch up. Place a white sheet of paper on the platen glass and make blank white copies. You may only be able to get 1-2 copies at first but as the device catches up with the toner replenish you should be able to make more. The blank copies you make -- do NOT put that paper right back into the machine. Lay it flat and let it cool, this will help prevent unwanted jamming due to heat build up in the paper. IF you have good amount of new toner in the machine, gently tap the front line ( or rear line) that feeds the used toner into the waste bottle. Sometimes the waste toner will clog and back up into the machine giving false 'waste toner full' message.

Panasonic DP-1810P Laser Copier


The copier has an "eye" that detects when the waste toner bottle is full. If you dump it and reuse it, the residue can build up and cause the machine to "think" the bottle is still full. I experienced the same problem. If you re-use an old bottle, after emptying, rinse our any remaining residue and dry the bottle out. Your copier should then notice the bottle being empty.

Waste motor error


The wate motor transfers (you guess it) waste toner to the waste toner bottle. If the bottle fills up, the motor cannot transfer more waste to it. This is rare, for the printer should ask for a new waste toner bottle when the previous one fills. However,it happens frequently when users try to empty and clean the bottle instead of replacing it.

If a new waste toner bottle is in place, then the printer needs a new motor, which can only be purchased through an Authorized Service Center.
