Canon Imagerunner C2050 changing toner

Hi I couldn't install new toners into the machine because it can't get pushed all the way in and be locked. Is there some sort of lever or button I have to push?

Thank you in advance.

    Hi Cogz. Yup every package removed, colors correct, etc. I concur it should be easy to install, but for some reason, it does not push all the way in. It does seem like the bottom part of the toner is stuck midway. The same goes for all 4 color of toner.

I'm a Canon service person,There is a ring inside the frunt of the toner housing of the IR2050 that is not moving back into place when the old toner cart. is removed.It needs to be pushed back up (I beleave counter colck wise) before the new unit is able to slide back in.Its a bit of a trick because it can slide back down before you get the new toner in.This will work I've done it many times.

Did remove all of the packing off the cartridge before installing the cartridge. Also, is it the right type of cartridge for that you need and or the right color... It should be easy to install if you are installing the right cartridge... Good Luck

    Come to think about it.... take out all 4 cartridge and see if the trans port unit is installed correctly( look for 2 little blue levers) make sure it is locked in correctly. Then try to close the trans port unint then the front door? dose it close with easy or dose in get hung up. I believe there is aengaging arm that open the covers on all of the toner unit. It may have gotten knocked out of place. Also try to reinstall the old cartridge and if it works??? Then it is the wrong cartridge. The printer is a HP printer on it's own. It may be conpatable??

Trying to find documentation for the Canon Imagerunner 400S. Need to know how to add toner?

Did you look on the box the toner comes in? Also, when the copier needs toner, the display panel will walk you through the steps of how to install a new toner. The hardest part is getting the toner cartridge OFF. You need to press the front of the developing unit right under the blue cover on the front. The Black piece will push in to release the toner cartridge. Good Luck...

I need to change the toner to my canon super g-3 copier, How do I remove the old one?

Have you adde the new toner in to the copier and can noy get the spent toner bottle OFF, right? Once you have locked the toner bottle in, you have to pull the Blue lever on the right bottom side of the toner bottle. That is pulled to the right to allow the toner to feed into the hopper. Once the toner is empited from the bottle, you have to push the Blue lever back to the left and push a little harder when it stops. This will release the two claws that hold the bottle locked in. You should be able to tilt the toner bottle up and to the left and then slide the toner bottle to the right and remove the toner bottle. If you can not get the toner bottle off, leave it till a service person comes or somebody else, don't force it, IT WILL MAKE A VERY, VERY, VERY BIG MESS...... The copier will work with it attached. Good Luck... I wouldn't ware white.....

Can't get toner out of machine to install new one...

To change the toner on this machine you do not need to take the toner unit out of the machine completly. Toner is meant to be fed with that unit slided out of the machine. Be the case you need to take out that unit. Look below the unit and you should see a white plastic with one screw. remove screw and plastic. And the unit could be taken out easily after that.

Canon IR210s copier

Are you sure you have the right toner??? It says it is for the IR-200-210 or dose it say IR-330 & IR- 400? If you look on the inside front door cover there are pictures showing how to install the toner, also there are pictures on the box the toner came in and also the display sceen will walk you through on how to replace the toner.. It slips in only one way and push down on it till it locks in then pull the blue tab till it displays "STOP" then push it back in and the push on the black part on the front of the developer unit to release the toner bottle and close the copier back up and lok the blue lever to the left and you are done. Good Luck
