Fixing this problem is very easy, even for those not so technical. All you need is a Philips Screwdriver. And it will also save you money in the process! :-)

The link above to the PDF has good images to help, so download that first.

Look at Fig. 5 on page 2. There you see 2 silver screws. Remove these.
Look at Fig. 6 and Fig 6a on page 3. Remove the cover and then remove the Flag gear (red arrow in Fig. 6) and the spring behind it as shown in Fig 6a.

Now replace the cover and the 2 screws! That's it! Yes it is that simple, just remove the Flag Gear and the Spring. The printer will keep on printing. This will also save you loads of money, as the toner can be used until really empty.

Happy Printing

Change your toner. if it's a rather new toner, it might not be your toner cartridge but you have to reset the toner cartridge's end of life flag gear, explained below:

the Flag gear lines up with a flap on the pritner side. you can also tape that up to achieve the same goal.

Rigsby66's solution (removing the flag gear completely) was the only one that worked for me. Many thanks!

the top of the waste toner container must be cleaned 100% from the toner because it should be a light sensor that has to pass through it , if its spoiled with toner the light cannot pass through it ,so i recommend you to empty the waste toner container first and wash it with water and drying it well before using it again.

Replaced toner and maintenance kit -keep getting yellow lights on exclamation and toner


If the toner and the exclamation lights are blinking yellow after replacing the toner and maintenance kit, then you will need to reset the photoconductor counter. But if the exclamation and the toner lights are steady on yellow, then that means there is something wrong with the toner.
