Question about Epson AcuLaser C900 Printer

1 Answer

Toner Capacity Can anybody tell me how to adjust the capacity of a new toner cartridge when inserted into an Epson c900 printer. I have been using the low capacity (1500 pages) cartridges, and have just inserted a high capacity cyan toner, and I want the print driver to recognise that it is a high capacity cartridge.

This does not need to be done. there is a chip/fuse built into the toner that basically tells the printer how many paes that toner has printed in its life time. no adjustment is needed it is all automatic

Black toner empty!!!! After refilling all of the dell 3110cn toners myself, I have re-sealed the toner input with some duct tape (fairly small, similar size to original seal) and inserted all the toners,...


This cartridge has a chip which stores the pagecount (for that cartridge).

You can re-fill these as much as you like, but unless you change the chip (it's NOT resettable) the cartridge will still think it is fully used.

Chips are available (different ones for each colour, and different again for the standard capacity and high capacity). You'll find them on a certain internet auction website.

I want to change the colour toner cartridge but it isn't empty - I can't move it round to release it


Assuming you are using Windows:

Method 1: Using Software.
=====================
Go to Start Menu
Open 'Control Panel'
Open 'Printers & Faxes'
Right-click on 'Epson AL C900'
Select 'Properties'
Select 'Optional Settings' tab
Select 'Printer Settings'
The option at the bottom lets you select which toner you wish to change.


Method 2: Mechanical Solution.
=========================
Switch the printer off
Open the front door
Just inside the door, on the left, just above half-way down (to the left of the toner-changing aperture), look for the following:
A horizontal rectangular hole with four raised plastic posts (2 above / 2 below). Behind the hole is the end of a hollow plastic rod.
Use a broad-bladed screwdriver to push this spring-loaded rod about a centimetre into the machine. That releaces the ratchet and the cartridge carousel can be rotated anti-clockwise by hand.

Magenta (yellow) unit is PAST end of life... (I have changed cartridges I still have this message. I tried to read instruction, and I got following message: Install P/N 108R00649 following the instalation)


Hi armaskopljak:
You have replaced the toner cartridge but you still have to replace the imaging unit which is the drom that the toner cartridge attaches to.
Toner Cartridge OK, Low, Empty When 15,000
(high-capacity cartridge) or
7,500 (standard-capacity
cartridge) pages are
printed (5% print density).
Imaging Units At/Near end-of-life When 30,000 pages are
printed out or when the
pixel counts are
exceeded.
A fuse in the new
imaging unit will blow
upon installation,
resetting the counter.
Verify color calibration. Clean lenses.

Is there a override function to keep printing when toner alerts are on?Wondering since black still shows 30%.


These printers will still print when any or all of the toners are LOW, but if any one of them is EMPTY (according to the chip on the toner cartridge) printing stops.

Standard capacity toners ere 2000 page for the colours, and 3000 page for the black, so they can soon be used up.

Much cheaper per page printed, if you use the high capacity cartridges (6000 page for the colours, and 8000 page black).

There are high quality remanufactured cartridges available now, as good as OEM, and typically you'll get a Hi Capacity Remanufactured cartridge for the same sort of price as a Std Capacity OEM cartridge.

As a short term solution at a lower cost than replacement cartridges, you could just replace the cartridge CHIP. The printer would then think the toner was full (there'll likely to still be some toner in it), so you'll be able to print. Don't run the printer like this for ever though, as the toner has some lubricant properties, and with a TRULY EMPTY cartridge, you'll eventually do some damage to the cartridge, and then possibly the transfer belt (and you don't want to be changing that until it's rated 100,000 page life is up.

The magenta & blue rollers on our Epson Aculaser C900 are printing in stripes.


quick check

1. are you running out of toner magenta and blue??

2. remove magenta and blue, shake them gently HORIZONTALY to evenly distribute the toner inside (the toner container internally has a spade that feeds the toner dust to a spongy roller then to the roller u see on the outside :) )). DON'T HANDLE THE TONER CARTRIDGE VERTICALLY ---ESPECIALLY WHEN U ARE LOW ON INK---

3. on photo conductor read my article
