If you have the complete driver suite installed you should have the samsung stores manager running or available. There should be a S shaped icon near your clock. if you click on that there should be a status section. Click on that and you will get an indication of how much toner. You can also click on the printer in the printers section under control panel and there will be a section there that reports status.

I think you can also get the printer to print off a report but I'm not 100% sure I'm remembering how on that model. Normally the stores manager is the easiest and fastest way.

How can tell if the ink level is low? hp 2420


Cartridge comes along with memory, the information of estimated ink/toner levels will stored in this memory(Depends upon the cartridge model yield will varies). When printer performs the printing, memory count will comes down, when its reaches the minimum count printer will display the message of "low ink/toner/remain pages" levels, once its reaches to '0', display will changes like "replace the cartridge"...But there is no electronic component or mechanism to measure the ink/toner levels in the cartridges.Only estimated levels only printer can recognizes.. Take usage page through menu, you will get the information that usage % & printed pages info,you can judge how much remain it can print...

Where is the toner sensor on the toner holder in the DCP-7020 it keeps telling me toner is empty and toner should not be empty yet.


If you look at your toner cartridge you should be able to see a clear plastic circle. That's part of the toner level mechanism. I've gotten a few more prints out of my cartridges by putting a piece of tape over the clear plastic and coloring it black with a sharpie. However, there are other mechanisms used to gauge toner levels, and this will not be a permanent fix.

I've also gotten a little more life out of it by simply shaking the toner cartridge for about 15 minutes. It helps coat the inside and might break up chunks inside the cartridge itself.

I have samsung scx4824-fn all in one printer its shows the message the tonner exushted


The laser printer has run out of toner, you need to install a new toner cartridge or a recharged toner cartridge.
Check the internet for replacement toner cartridge for your model printer or purchase a toner cartridge from your computer shop.

Toner level


To check the toner level, there is a little clear window on each cartridge you can use for this purpose. Hold the cartridge vertically. If you see toner in the window, it is more than half full (or less than half empty, ha!). If not, slowly tilt the cartridge toward the side with the window. Essentially, how far you tilt it before you see toner determines how far below half full it is. If you pass a 45 degree angle before the toner appears in the window, it is nearing empty and must be replaced or refilled (yes, refilling is an option).

If you do have to replace or refill, don't forget to empty the waste toner bottle (responsibly, of course). By the time you run low on toner in one of your cartridges, the waste toner bottle will likely be nearing capacity.

False Toner message


Are you using genuine HP toners? If not HP puts a chip on there cartridges that tells the machine it is a new cartridge. Some generic toners do not replace this chip therefor giving you this false message.
