Hello there Troubleshooting a copier when it has problems is essential to saving time and money. Many problems are common and easy to fix, while others will require a visit from a repair technician. Learn how to fix the easier issues and when to call a repair person.

  • Remove jammed paper, probably the most common copier problem, by opening the front of the copier and following the instructions which are usually printed inside the unit.
  • Step 2Store paper in a cool, dry place. Jams can be caused by paper that is slightly curled or has been exposed to moisture. Sometimes starting over with a fresh **** of paper solves recurrent paper jamming problems.
  • Step 3Clean the copier of paper dust with a cloth and clean the glass to remove ink and other materials that have transferred from originals. Do this regularly and be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions.

    • Learn how to replace the copier's toner cartridge. This will help you to troubleshoot copier problems such as lighter or darker areas on the page and is an easy thing to try as a possible solution before calling in a technician.

    • Step 5Call a repair person if you've checked for the simpler issues and are still experiencing problems. These might include unexplained noises, spots on the page--which are likely a problem with the developer unit--or if you suspect the problem lies in the drum unit. Drums can rarely be rebuilt, so a new one will need to be installed by a professional.

    Message the toner bottle is full please call the server machine printing rico 4500

    The bottle full message indicates that the waste toner collection bottle is full. The full bottle needs to be removed and the toner disposed of properly. Then a replacement collection bottle needs to be installed and the waste toner counter reset. This site has the toner bottle: . It is possible to reuse the bottles but most people will spill the toner when they try to empty a collection bottle. You do not want loose toner in your environment.

    Turn off the printer (at the power switch) and wait for the lights to stop blinking before attempting the replacement. See page 62 of the network guide for the replacement procedure. See to search for your printer and get the manuals.

    I hope this helps

    Lexmark E260dn toner light is still on after changing the toner cartridge

    Toner light is ON, I would assume that the light is solid and not blinking. You can press and release to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. With the printer turned off, remove the toner cartridge and shake it to extend its life. Check the replacement toner cartridge if it is the one suitable for your region.

    If the blinking light is on Toner Low, press and release the Continue button (green button) to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. If the light is still blinking, the photoconductor is almost full and should be replaced.

    For further assistance, please call Lexmark Technical Support.

    Error code 19

    Indicates that the waste toner case is full.

    Thereafter, if the waste toner case is not replaced after making a total of about 2000 prints
    (A4/LTR), the machine will indicate 'E019' on the control panel; the error code can be reset
    by replacing the waste toner case and then turning off and then on the power switch.
    If the waste toner case is not set, the light-blocking plate will block the light between the
    photosensors, causing the Waste Toner Case Full message to appear.

    Paper light keeps blinking, paper full, won't print

    Paper light blinking could mean a few things on this machine.

    There could be a paper jam in the machine. Open the front cover remove the drum and toner and look in the machine. You can also check in between the drum and toner by removing the toner from the drum. Open the back cover and look for a Jam as well.

    Try putting a piece of paper in the manual feed tray which is right above the paper tray, sometimes on certain documents the margins are too big and asks to go into the manual feed slot.

    Toner showing empty

    first, if you refilled your toner, the printer will always tell you, that you are not using original toner and red light will blink. second, if printer tell you every time to replace different color, then you need to clean a chip reader and chips on toners. take out all toners and pc drum. under toner rack there is a chip reader, clean it with pressure air and reinstall
