Question about Canon Printers & Copiers

4 Answers

Hello I have a canon lbp2900 which has been functioning well. When I try to print i get a message asking me to insert a toner cartridge, however there is a toner cartridge in the machine and I am sure that it has not yet emptied. I have switched off, taken the cartridge out and re-inserted but ther error warning still occurs. Do I need to replace the toner cartidge? The warning does not say that the toner is empty, it simply says insert a cartridge.

I just posted the similar problem recently. After talking to canon printer service tech, this is what solved my problem:

1. open the top cover and remove the cartridge
2. Inside the printer, these is black roller (with sponge&soft material). Press this gently couple of times
3. below this roller, there is a gray roller. press this roller upward couple to times gently
4. insert the cartridge and try to get print out

hope that helps.

Alarm button flashing says install cartridge. I put new toner cartridge in but after reset, unplugging etc the alarm light and message still come on? Thanks


Hello,
first of all, check if the triangle on toner tube and toner insert is alligned. Eaven the smallest gap can cause the problem's because the nose on toner tube presses the sensor flapper and signals that toner is inserted.
Also the problem can be in broken sensor flap, or hardened toner in toner station.
If the toner station is faulty you can try to dismantlle the toner station and vacume it.

Hope that helps!

How to refill toner in canon lbp2900 printer


I would not advise you to refill a toner cartridge becausethe toner powder is very fine and you do not want to breath in this tonerpowder. When the toner cartridge is exhausted or empty then theprinter will not be able to print further documents or the prints will be veryfaint. You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer. This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter. A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.

Display fax gives a warning "received in memory" we also have a warning "prepare black toner" We can not print the fax! What can we do?


Generally the "received in memory" message is a result of the machines inability to print. I.E. It received a fax, attempted to print it, failed, and then stored it in memory to print once the issue has been corrected.

The Prepare Black Toner error is likely directly related. If the toner cartridge is empty, inserted incorrectly, or damaged it could be causing this error. Try reseating the cartridge by removing and reinserting. If that doesn't clear the error try replacing it with a new Canon branded cartridge.

As soon as you correct the printing issue the stored faxes will print.

My toner was low, so I replaced it...it printed one page and now won't copy or print (cannon multipass mp730)


Hello,

If you changed the toner cartridge before the previous one was completely empty, it is possible the machine simply did not reset.

Turn the power off and take the new toner cartridge out. Turn the power back on and wait for a message telling you there is no toner.
When you get the no toner message re-insert the new toner cartridge.

If this does not clear the message, you will need to find the button to press to manually reset the toner cartridge from Canon.

Thanks,

Pat
