Before installing a new toner, put a disposable towel over the ink toner exit, and shake your toner lightly back and forth and up and down. Make sure your toner cartridge is in the open position before replacing it in your printer.
If you are using a refillable ink cartridge, make sure you are resetting the cartridge using the method described by the refillable manufacturer.

Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 85% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following: Are you using a manufacturer’s factory new ink cartridge or toner? If you are using a refilled (worst possible choice) cartridge, toner or ink, or third party cartridge (2nd. worst possible choice) that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges. They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead. If you are using the manufacturer’s new ink cartridges, then please contact their technical support group.Factory new cartridges usually have warranties on them. Don
the solid light means toner is low. Blinking usually means either the cartridge is out of toner or the cartridge is having a technical problem. If you pull the yellow toner cartridge and put it back in with no change in result, you will need to replace the yellow toner cartidge

This problem you will be noticed when toner is 90% empty.
Does the printer is functioning or No. If yes the problem is 90% toner is finished.[10% toner remaining alert]
If printer is not functioning Please change the toner from Genuine dealer. Else your printer fails due to non genuine and refilled toner.
The toner sensor where the cartridge is loaded is fouled or you refilled this cartridge and the printer does not reconise the toner inside and thinks its empty ether or sensor or refilled cartridge the printer thiks there is no toner.

Replace the toner cartridge with a brand new one. There's no such thing as refilling toner cartridges. When it's empty, the drum unit is finished and it should be replaced, not refilled. Remember that the drum unit is sensitive to light, and will also be damaged if exposed to a great amount of light over a perid.
If a new cartridge does not solve your problem, remove the cartridge and check out the charge roller. It's located in the upper part of the "cartridge-room". It's a grey roller. lower the front cover the get easy access to it.
If it looks nice and clean, just leave it. If it is dirty and smutsy, you should remove it and try to clean it with hot water. If it is damaged in any way, it should be replaced.
Still problems ?
Check out the fixing unit. Remove the fixing unit and look at the the big rollers that put out the paper. If they look nice, put the fixing unit back in. If they are burned and dirty, replace the fixing unit.
This happens when the connections on the cartridge get old. Especially when you refill or buy non HP Cartridges, try buying brand new hp cartridges and you might be able to get a couple refill out of them before this happens again.
I am assuming from your brief problem description that you are getting bad colors when you changed your color cartridge.
Are you using a new and certified HP ink cartridge? Are you doing a refill of your old ink cartridge or have bought one of those "re-manufactured" cartridges?
The head in the cartridge is very sensitive - when they are damaged or poorly handled - it could result in cross contamination of the color inks. Hence - the brownish color you see could be the result of that cross-contam.
My impression is that the remanufactured or older or continously refilled cartridges may be more prone to getting damaged - maybe bec of inherent wear out.
Hope this helps.
