I have a Xerox Phaser 3124 and I have refilled the tonner. My problem is that it is shown to me "TONER LOW" and LED is still red. It keeps printing papers but the quality is very low. Please...


When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life span:

• White streaks and light printing occur.
• The Error LED blinks red.

If this happens, you can temporarily reestablish print quality by
redistributing the remaining toner in the cartridge. In some cases, white
streaks or light printing will still occur even after you have redistributed
the toner.

1. Open the front cover.

2.Pull the toner cartridge out.

Caution
• Avoid reaching too far into the printer. The fuser area may be
hot.
• To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to
light for more than a few minutes. Cover it with a piece of
paper, if necessary.
• Do not touch the green surface underside of the toner
cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching
this area.

3. Thoroughly shake the cartridge 5 or 6 times to distribute the toner
evenly inside the cartridge.

Caution
• If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and
wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.

4. Hold the toner cartridge by the handle and slowly insert the
cartridge into the opening in the printer.

Tabs on the sides of the cartridge and corresponding grooves
within the printer will guide the cartridge into the correct position
until it locks into place completely.

5. Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely closed.

Se puede resetear el contador de los tambores de la oki c3400n


Trata esto:
When installing the C3400n printer, or when replacing the toner cartridge, be sure to fully insert the toner cartridge into the image drum, and make sure the blue lever is pushed ALL THE WAY toward the back of the printer (fully locked position). If it is not fully closed (locked), a "toner sensor" or "toner empty" message may result. Note: (Picture at bottom shows incorrect position of locked toner cartridge that may result in either of these messages).

Installation Procedure of Image Drum and Toner Cartridge:

          0.408?openelement&fieldelemformat=gif
    >> Insure the toner is fully locked, see photo below showing the correct and incorrect positions of the locked toner cartridge.

CORRECT (Fully rotated to lock position)

INCORRECT (Not fully rotated to lock position)

Inatallation of a printer


Hello , I believe I can help you out.

First here is a bit about your machines toner maintenance.

Second will be how to change the cartridge.

Remember if I was of assistance please be kind and leave a kind quick testimonial and good rating.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maintaining the toner cartridge
Toner cartridge storage
Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to
light, temperature, and humidity. Samsung suggests users
follow the recommendations to ensure the optimum
performance, highest quality, and longest life from your
new Samsung toner cartridge.
Store this cartridge in the same environment as the printer
it will be used in; this should be in controlled office
temperature and humidity conditions. The toner cartridge
should remain in its original, unopened package until
installation – If original packaging is not available, cover
the top opening of the cartridge with paper and store in a
dark cabinet.
Opening the cartridge package prior to use dramatically
shortens its useful shelf and operating life. Do not store on
the floor. If the toner cartridge is removed from the printer,
always store the cartridge:
• Inside the protective bag from the original package
• Correct side up in a horizontal position (not standing on
end)
• Do not store consumables in;
- Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).
- Humidity range less than 20% and not greater than
80%.
- An environment with extreme changes in humidity or
temperature.
- Direct sunlight or room light.
- Dusty places.
- A car for a long period of time.
- An environment where corrosive gases are present.
• An environment with salty air.
Handling instructions
• Do not touch the surface of the photosensitive drum in
the cartridge.
• Do not expose the cartridge to unnecessary vibrations
or shock.
• Never manually rotate the drum, especially in the
reverse direction; this can cause internal damage and
toner spillage.
Use of non-Samsung and refilled toner
cartridge
Samsung Electronics does not recommend or approve the
use of non-Samsung brand toner cartridges in your printer
including generic, store brand, refilled, or remanufactured
toner cartridges.
CAUTION: Samsung’s printer warranty does not cover damage to
the machine caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or
non-Samsung brand toner cartridge.
Estimated cartridge life
Estimated cartridge life (the life of the toner cartridge yield)
depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. The
actual print-out number may vary depending on the print
density of the pages you print on, operating environment,
printing interval, media type, and/or media size. For
example, if you print a lot of graphics, the consumption of
the toner is high and you may need to change the cartridge
more often.
Redistributing the toner cartridge
When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life:
• White streaks or light printing occurs.
• The warning message, Toner Low displays on the control
panel.
• The Smart Panel program window appears on the computer
telling you that the toner cartridge is low on toner.
• The Status LED blinks red.
If this happens, you can temporarily reestablish print quality by
redistributing the remaining toner in the toner cartridge. In
some cases, white streaks or light printing will still occur even
after you have redistributed the toner.
1 Open the front cover.
2 Pull the toner cartridge out.
3 Thoroughly roll the toner cartridge 5 or 6 times to
distribute the toner evenly inside the toner cartridge.
NOTE: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry
cloth and wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into
fabric
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Changing cartridge:
_______________________________________________________

CAUTION: Do not touch the green underside of the toner
cartridge. Use the handle on the toner cartridge to avoid
touching this area.

4 Hold the toner cartridge by the handle and slowly insert
the toner cartridge into the opening in the machine.

5 Tabs on the sides of the toner cartridge and corresponding
grooves within the machine will guide the toner cartridge
into the correct position until it locks into place completely.

6 Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely
closed.

Replacing the toner cartridge
When the toner cartridge is completely empty:

• The printer stops printing.

• The Smart Panel program window appears on the computer
telling you that the toner cartridge is empty.

• The Status LED lights red.

At this stage, the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. For
order information for toner cartridges, see page 7.1.

1 Pull the toner cartridge out.

2 Remove the new toner cartridge from its bag.

3 Roll the toner cartridge 5 or 6 items to distribute the toner
evenly inside the toner cartridge.

Thoroughly rolling the toner cartridge will assure
maximum copies per toner cartridge.

4 Remove the paper protecting the toner cartridge.

NOTE: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry
cloth and wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into
fabric.

CAUTION: Do not touch the green underside of the toner
cartridge. Use the handle on the toner cartridge to avoid
touching this area.

5 Hold the toner cartridge by the handle and slowly insert
the toner cartridge into the opening in the machine.

6 Tabs on the sides of the toner cartridge and corresponding
grooves within the machine will guide the toner cartridge
into the correct position until it locks into place completely.

7 Close the front cover. Make sure that the cover is securely
closed.

I have a C3530 MFP and it won't print because it says check toner cartridge black. Toner Sensor Error


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Toner sensor error is related to the agitator inside the toner cartridge, it occasionally falls out of its housing so it does not move the toner sensor which is the white plastic piece that moves up and down on the coloured handle, the toner sensors themselves see this white flag if it doesn’t move then the printer thinks the sensor is broken so toner sensor error is flagged and if the flag moves too quickly the machine thinks the toner is empty. To resolve the issue your printer is facing with please check that toner lock lever is in position and follow the following procedure---

Press the cover release and open the printer’s top cover fully. Make sure the Toner Cartridge in question is correctly positioned and the right hand clip is pushed back. While holding it by its top centre, lift the image drum, complete with its toner cartridge, up and out of the printer. On the Right hand side of the toner look for a sensor patch, make sure this is not dirty. If it is dirty clean it with a soft object such as cotton wool. Now look inside the printer opposite to where the sensor patch would sit. There is a black square with a sensor located inside and check that this is not dirty. Now replace the drum and toner, and close the printer cover. Try to print a test page and it will start printing normally.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Here is your problem.

When setting up a brand new C5100n or C5300n out of box, a toner sensor error is encountered.

The printer can display any one of the following errors:

543K: TONER SENSOR ERROR

540Y: TONER SENSOR ERROR

541M: TONER SENSOR ERROR

542C: TONER SENSOR ERROR
Cause:
This generally can be caused by two things.

1. The toner cartridge lock lever is not in the correct position.

2. The Transfer Belt lock levers are not in the correct position.
Resolution:

Check the appropriate toner cartridge lock lever (Shown below) and make sure that it is in the correct position.
0.110?openelement&fieldelemformat=gif 2.1ac?openelement&fieldelemformat=gif

Does not print has blank copy


Before you added toner was it working OK, but it was asking for toner? If so the problem may be simple. The Blue lever you pushed down and to the right to release the Developing unit, was it locked in at the Nine o'clock potion? Is it now at the Nine o'clock position now or is it in a different position now. If so make sure it is at the Nine o'clock posisition now and that the front door can close correctly. Good Luck

Resetting Toner count onprint settings PRINT SETTINGS report


I don't suggest refilling cartridges as I work on printers every day but seems to me that you have done everything correctly the only thing I think you have done is either filled with incorrect toner thus giving a incorrect reading or when moving gear you have dislodged the pin that activates the reset procedure.

Thanks J
