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??

I cant get the toner cartridges in my canon c ir 2050 to go back into the copier

Try these steps.
  • Pull out of the front cover of the Canon 2200 so that it flips down and exposes the inside of the machine.
  • Remove any toner cartridge already in the machine by pressing down on the blue lever located near the bottom right of the inside of the machine. Then grasp the toner box right above the handle and slide it out until it stops.
  • Hold the new toner cartridge in both hands and shake it from side to side a few times to loosen up the toner.
  • Orient the toner cartridge so that the flat surface is facing downward and the small handle at the end of the surface is pointing toward you.
  • Place the toner cartridge on top of the toner box. Push it back in as far as it will go and then press down on the cartridge until you feel it click into place.
  • Pull back on the small handle on the top of the cartridge. A thin separator sheet between the cartridge and the toner box will come out. Continue to pull until you see a stop sign on the separator sheet.
  • Tap on the toner cartridge to cause the toner to vacate the cartridge and fall into the toner box. After you have tapped it a few times, push the cartridge handle back in. When the handle goes all the way back in, you will feel the cartridge unlock from the toner box.
  • Remove the empty toner cartridge and push the toner box back into the machine. Pull up on the blue lever once the box is all the way in. Close the front cover to the Canon 2200.
Hope this helps.

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...

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
