Between the LED rasterizers (four of them, one for each of CMY & K), there are rockers with a small but powerful magnet. When the lid is closed, the magnet will touch the top of the toner cartridge, which in turn, has a magnet on a rod that goes up and down with the rollers when the toner is churned in the cartridge. If the toner magnet is not in the position it is supposed to be (you can check it's position with a hand held magnet), the sensor will falsely interpret that no cartridge is present. You may need to replace the toner cartridge, or if you have more time than money, empty the toner cartridge into a clean vessel, disassemble the cartridge, fix the magnet-on-a-wire assembly, reassemble the cartridge, and replace the toner from the holding vessel. Or, just buy a new cartridge.
On the other hand, I've noticed the rocker switches get sticky in lower temperatures (I keep my 2135 in the garage). Maybe a shot of WD40 on the rocker would help, but to do that, you'll need to remove the lid. It's not too hard, there's only about 9 screws, after removing the back panel (another 4 or 5 screws), After a few more screws around the toner sensor panel (a PCB), you disconnect some quick-disconnect switches, and then you can see the rockers (the actual switches are opto-electrical components on the PCB, you might clean them with alcohol, but they are discrete packages that can't be repaired).
This is a major flaw in the Xerox 2135 (probably persists in the 7300 series as well) and the OKI 9200/9300 series upon which the 2135 is based. There's way too much that can go wrong, but the killer is that nothing except the sensor is failing. Very frustrating!

We have a Xerox Phaser 6350 and I was printing some copies today, when I looked over and it stopped printing magenta. So, I replaced the toner cartridge and opened the printer to make sure that everything...


Make sure you turn the printer off and back on a couple times. The fuser is not "hot-swappable"meaning you need to cycle the power for the machine to recognize it. If after doing this and you are confident that the fuser is seated correctly the next step would be to replace the fuser (part# - 115R00035). ItemInc.com has these in stock and ships same day. Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa!

I have a Xerox phaser 7300 that keeps telling me to install or reseat the black cartridge


It is slightly unusual for it to be the black toner cartridge (usually cyan or magenta) but this issue is quite common on the 7300. You can find a lot of information about this here.

Keeps asking for ink and it has ink


Try removing, and then reseating the MAGENTA cartridge.

If you replace the MAGENTA toner-cartridge, does the problem go away?

I have a xerox phaser 8500. At startup it states


The magenta toner (powder) in the cartridge is "piled up" to one side.

1. Remove the magenta cartridge.
2. Holding the cartridge ends with your hands, "rock" it side to side a few times, then "roll" it forward/backwards a few times.
3. Put back in printer.... it should work ok.
4. If not, then power OFF the printer and unplug the power cord from the wall or power strip.
5. Turn ON the printer with the power cord disconnected.
6. Plug power cord back in and turn on printer.
7. It should work ok now.

Hope this helps!

Phaser 6350 flooded with magenta toner


Problem developers start leaking toner. The problem is that some times the toner spuills into developers below it and damaging them. The problem may appear as a grinding noise that may indicate a developer gear/motor problem, when in fact its a bad developer that is not running smoothly. It may be expensive, and you may have to replace ALL the Developers.

Xerox phaser 6120 "magenta toner missing"


This problem may happen randomly with any toner.
Open the printer, the "missing toner" should be the one you see.
No need to uninstall it.
On the right side of the toner, above and to the right of the label, you will see a small green board with three contacts on it.
Just clean these contacts with a moderate cleaning solution (nail polish remover will do).

Problem with phaser


Phaser 2135 Printer: Resolving dirty looking background or gray haze

Description: Tiny speckles of toner scattered all over the page, even in areas of the page that should be blank.
  1. Make sure the media being used is supported by the Phaser 2135 printer.
  2. Inspect imaging drums for any signs of leakage or excess toner that could be falling onto the print as it travels though the printer. Any leaking imaging drums should be replaced.
  3. Verify environmental conditions. See article Dealing with humidity, humidifiers. If the environmental conditions are not within the specified range, the printer should be moved before trying to troubleshoot the cause to the background toner.
  4. Determine if any of the imaging drums were exposed to light for an extended period of time (more than 10 minutes). If so, then Replace the imaging drum. (Xerox is not responsible for any imaging drums that have been damaged by over exposure to light.)
Additional Recommendations:
Background toner may increase, if printing occurs at temperatures towards the higher end of the specified operating temperature range. For this reason, it is recommended that the printer be moved to another area if at all possible.
In addition, very smooth media types such as glossy; allow toner to more easily scatter about the page prior to becoming fused. Try using a less smooth media if at all possible.
