HP Laserjet 4100N saying toner is low when it isn't

HP 4100N displays "Toner Low" for over 6 months before it runs out. Is there a sensor in the printer or in the toner cartridge that tells the printer when the toner is low?

Hp laserjet p3015 not printing


The printer will have a message in the screen saying roughly how many pages are left in the toner cartridge if the toner is running low. Try printing a "configuration page" by pressing "ok", arrow down to "information", arrow down to " print configuration page", then press "ok". If this page prints you still have toner left.

Check and make sure the toner is in correctly. Also go to your start menu if you are running windows and look for your print settings print a test page if this isn't working then please message back.

Why does my printer say low toner and have garbled print when i downloaded drivers and changed toner?


In the configuration menu you should have an option to select when changing the toner to say "New Toner" yes or no.

HP Laserjet P1006 prints with blank white stripe down left side


Clean the Corona Wire carefully to remove any residue. As the charge on the wire is effectivley masked it cannot deposit any toner to the page and will result in a consistent white vertical stripe.

Display says toner out even with new cart. Setting new cart message in resets menu to yes does not work, selection reverts back to no. Customer is using reman carts.


A number of companies use a fuse that blows when the cartridge is low. If the fuse is not replaced, it will still say "toner out". The reman should have replaced it.

I am trying to reinstall the black ink cartridge to a hp2605dn and it keeps saying the error 10.1000


I found this info on the web for you, guessing you are using a recycled or generic cartridge:

The HP LaserJet 2300 toner cartridge has a smart chip on the top left side. This chip tells the printer when the toner is low.

Recycled toners do not or can not reset the chip, therefore when you use a recycled toner you may get toner low messages although the toner is good.

Also, you may get the 10.10.00 error. There is a work around to fool the printer into not displaying the message.

Place a strip of opaque tape or paper on the chip. When the printer detects a non-standard cartridge press the green (go) button. It will then reset the LCD to Ready.

No guarantees but it seems plausible.

Hp laser 4500 says toner is low or out even after new cartridge


There is a toner sensor in this printer that shoots a beam of light through the toner cartridge. As long as the toner is full and blocks the light, it sees it as being full. If it were the sensor, it would tell you this for all the toners, though. The printer also calculates how much toner may have been used and gives warnings based on that. It could be that this isn't getting reset after you change toner. You can reset the toner gage by going into the reset menu and selecting "New xxxx cartridge" and changing it to YES.

HP 2550L says toner is low when it isn't


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Laser Printer Cleaning


Does the dirty background get lighter as you print additional pages? Have you tried a new cartridge yet? Unless your toner cartridge is leaking toner (you?ll see toner on the inside of the printer or leaking out if you remove the cartridge and shake) a simple cleaning is probably not the answer. Let me know and we'll pick up later.
