E026-0x01 Error Code / Message [Remaining toner is low.] / Toner scattering inside machine.

E026-0x01 can be displayed when the toner concentration does not return to a normal level after replacement of the toner bottle and 5-time toner recovery sessions following the detection of toner absence.

In the field, this symptom occurred because the toner shutter in the developing assembly was not open completely and the toner was not supplied from the toner bottle to the developing assembly.

Workaround :
Before installing the developing assembly into the host machine, be sure to slide and fix the toner shutter so as to cover the opening for toner. Then, install the toner bottle.

Points to Keep in Mind When Fitting the Developing Unit
- Before starting the work, check to be sure that the shutter [1] is forced in the direction of the arrow. If not, move it in the direction of the arrow until it butts against the shutter [1]. If it is not fully butted against the shutter, you may not be able to fit the toner cartE000026-0201 the machine is not detecting the - getfile.asp?rid=17225 />getfile.asp?rid=17225

- When fixing the developing unit using a screw [1], be sure to force the casing of the developing unit in the direction of the arrow as you tighten the screw. After tightening the screw, try pushing the casing of the developing unit in the direction of the arrow to make sure that there is play of about 1.5 to 2 mm. If there is no play, remove the screw [1], and tighten it while forcing the casinE000026-0201 the machine is not detecting the - getfile.asp?rid=17226nit in the direction of the arrow.

My printer is low on yellow and magenta and is printing a stripe of each color on the papers edge.

On the drums for each colour there is a purple/blue/green slider for cleaning the corona wire. If there is a stripe of colour anywhere on the page going from top to bottom check these sliders. They need to be where the arrow on the slider meets the arrow on the drum casing.

As for low toner on the Yellow and Magent - Replace the cartridges.

Not printing magent color

Try to recalibrate the colors. Make sure the seal is pulled on the toner cartridge. Make sure the toner cartridge is pushed all the way in to let the sensor touch the chip on the cartridge. If possible, take the right side door (as you are facing the printer) off and try printing a demo page. Check to make sure both large gears engage are turning together as it prints.

How can i settle the problem of magenta developer finishing so fast. Magenter developer for Konica Minolta Bizhub C550 is getting finished so fast.

If the message Change Imaging Unit Magenta displayed refer to imaging unit with contents a developer.The Imaging unit life is 80.000 copies.
The imaging units located after front door when is located the waste toner box.
If the message M toner end/change the M toner displayed refer to toner cartridge
The toner cartridge life 15.000 copies 5% saturation.In full color mode the color saturation is 80% and the color toner life is 6.000-8.000 copies.
I think your problems is a toner not the developer.

I am looking for thresdhold when the Ricoh aficio sp c420dn printer sends out the toner low message. Is it 15%? I cant find this anywhere. There are other Ricoh models also.

Ricoh sense toner in the following methods:

Toner Near End
To detect the toner near-end, the machine uses:
Pixel count (memory chip on the AIO)
AIO rotation distance (memory chip on the AIO)
Toner End
To detect toner end the machine uses:
Output from the TM sensor (center)
After near-end, it is estimated that 200 pages (A4, 5% coverage) can be printed until toner
end occurs.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

It was in the middle of a print job, when it stopped and showed Malfunction Detected Provide code C-OF36

C-OF36 means that the mahine is not getting black toner properly. Specifically the service manual says:
"Abnormally low toner density detected by Black ATDC Sensor. Toner density that is 2% or more lower than the target level is detected ten consecutive times during a print cycle, ATVC, or image stabilization sequence."
What this means in simpleterms is that the machine is trying to add black toner and is not getting it.
Have you tried turning the machine off then back on to reset the code and see if the machine can add the required toner?
I would try this a few times. If it does not work then you will need someone to come out and service it because there are numerous causes for this condition and most are going to require dis-assembly of components to locate the problem.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fxya!

Replaced toner but continues to say replace toner&power failure 8

Anthony here. Had a similar problem, fax didn't detect the new toner. The photo sensor does not detect the toner en the fax is new. Put a black tape where the toner slots into the sensor en walla it worked. When the copies become faint I know that the toner is low or over.

Brother 9440cn replace toner message override

well you could shake the toner cartridge, to make sure that the remaining toner has uniform coverage to the developer roller, which is the black magentic roller in the toner, which applies the toner onto the drum.

Only way to fix, if the printer uses a electronic sensor, is to actually change the toner, it can not be overridden.
