Did you remove the toner protect strip to allow the new cartridge to expose the toner?

Remove the Toner cartridge and reseat it. After reseating it, wait for the printer to recognize the cartridge, then turn the printer off, then back on.

When the printer is turned on, it warms up and then the red status button comes on. I've install new toner cartridges, dumped the waste toner tank, installed a new usb cable, in a different slot, and...


There is a lot of problems that can cause the red light to come on, toner cartridge problems, waste toner tank full, paper jam. The only way to know for sure is to check the smart panel software to see what the printer is reporting as the problem, then you can attempt to fix it.

I PUT A NEW TONER AND IT IS SAYING THERE IS EMPTY


Are you sure it was a full NEW toner cartridge?? Not an old one you had lying around.
If it was a new one the next question line goes as follows.... the machine will say in the display to "Rplace toner soon"...that dosn't mean its empty and to replace it..that means itsLOW and you should have a new toner cartridge "on-hand" because it will soon stop printing and say "REPLACE TONER". At that time the toner cartridge should be replaced, when it is installed a "fuse" on the cartridge blows and resets the toner light on the display. If you installed the toner cartridge when the display was saying "replace toner soon" you have blown the fuse in the new cartridge, now the machine has run about another 100 copies and says "replace toner"....but you now can't reset the light because the fuse is already blown because you may have replaced the cartridge too early!!! WHAT CAN YOU DO if that is the case...you can replace the fuse on the cartridge..its pretty easy to see, just replace it with another mini-fuse of the same rating written on the existing fuse..then put the cartridge in again..the fuse will blow, reset the light and away you will go. When all else fails read the operators manual.

Brother Printer 2150N - toner light has come on & toner is OK


Bought a 2150 in 2007. In 2008 toner light came on. Bought a new toner cartridge and installed. Light would not go off. Called Brother. They had us do the following:
1) Turn power off
2) Open front cover
3) Press white button (left side) 2 times and hold
4) Turn power on
5) Press white button 6 times and hold. All 3 lights should come on.
6) Close cover
7) Press blue button 3 times. Should print demo page.

We took the new cartridge out and saved it. The original is still working fine.

What is the meaning og service code coo 70 for minolta ep 1054. thanks


Toner bottle rotation failure. This is usually caused by the toner bottle/cartridge not being installed correctly. Did you just recently install a new one?
Best solution is to try and remove the cartridge. Then leave it out, and close the machine back up and let it run. Only re-install the toner cartridge after the machine has completely stopped.
The machine rotates this cartridge when adding toner. So what happens is the add toner light comes on and if you open the machine to add toner while it is running the bottle stops turning and is thus out of it's home position.

Toner light stays on despite replacing toner


Is this a remanufactured cartridge? if so the remanufacturedr may have neglected to install, or improperly installed the Reset lever? The initial cartridges that came in the printer didn't have them. On the left side of the new cartridge (if you're holding it as if you were going to install) you should see e white lever seated in sort of a half moon slot. this lever should be toward the front of the catridge when it is new and it gets pushed back as the new cartridge is engaged, to let the printer know it is new, and reset the counter. If this is not the case you should get a replacment
