Hmmm..that toner empty issue is built into most printers, and it's not something that you can fake out, in most cases. Oki is telling you the straight stuff, here.

Se puede resetear el contador de los tambores de la oki c3400n


Trata esto:
When installing the C3400n printer, or when replacing the toner cartridge, be sure to fully insert the toner cartridge into the image drum, and make sure the blue lever is pushed ALL THE WAY toward the back of the printer (fully locked position). If it is not fully closed (locked), a "toner sensor" or "toner empty" message may result. Note: (Picture at bottom shows incorrect position of locked toner cartridge that may result in either of these messages).

Installation Procedure of Image Drum and Toner Cartridge:

          0.408?openelement&fieldelemformat=gif
    >> Insure the toner is fully locked, see photo below showing the correct and incorrect positions of the locked toner cartridge.

CORRECT (Fully rotated to lock position)
    91.28a2?openelement&fieldelemformat=gif


INCORRECT (Not fully rotated to lock position)

OKI B4400 toner - is the chip reusable? I get toner not installed


The chip is not reusable and needs to be replaced every time. You should be able to find a chip on the internet somewhere. I own a Cartridge World printer cartridge refilling store and I do not recommend refilling your own toner cartridges or buying super cheap ones off the internet. The toner is generally such a low grade that it degrades your drum cartridge causing you to replace a $219 drum unit before you should have to.

My laser printer used to click when starting up on the yellow toner now yellow does not print at all.


Replace Y toner cartridge (use oki ones or risk it not working for you, but I have warned you now) it was low (sensor clicking) now it is empty(stop operations)

Chances are that you will then need the other colours too, they all go about same time, but depends on what colours you print, normally black goes first then 3 colours, lights and software should indicate but once it is empty totally all will stop...

You can check visually by removing suspect drum and toner, putting on desk, remove toner cart. from top of drum, inside drum running the width of top surface is a 2 x 15cm wide slot, it needs to have the toner to the brim of this slot (foam edged), there also needs to be toner left in the toner unit itself thats sits on top of this slot.

Cheers

When installing the C3300 printer, or when replacing the toner cartridge, be sure to fully insert the toner cartridge into the image drum, and make sure the blue lever is pushed ALL THE WAY toward the back of the printer (fully locked position). If it is not fully closed (locked), a "toner sensor" or "toner empty" message may result.

I get a message of toner empty on my Okipage 10ex.


You need to reset the toner count using the support software that comes with your printer (2 cds come with printer -1 driver cd and one with supplementery software)
Hope this helps
