    Yes, I did several times. I had another brand new original Kyo Toner cartridge which did exactly the same - i.e. it printed about 50 copies, then zilch.
    I also pushed the roller thingy which is under the toner cartridge firmly into its seating but to no avail. I checked to make sure the used toner outlet was clear from obstruction.
    Any more ideas would be much appreciated. This is good workhorse printer, generally rock solid, but this is a complete mystery.

    The adhesive strips had been removed otherwise I could not have printed the first 50 copies. Both cartridges were factory sealed brand new original Kyocera items.

    Yes I removed the cartridge and vigorously shook them horizontally (as shown in the instruction leaflet) to ensure any caked toner was dispersed.

I have kyocera taskalfa 400 take a lot of time to copy 50 sheet ( adding toner ) i replace a lot of kind off the toner still the proplem

assuming the toner coverage per print isnt excessive , the problem could be any of the following,
toner - have you used 3rd party toner ( compatibles, remanufactured) - if yes - you could have put the developer toner ratio out of spec- fix by replacing developer tank AND toner.
if no - is there any blockage in the toner transfer pipe between toner cartridge and developer tank/ is the pipe split leaking toner if all looks ok , test the toner pump using the service commands., if toner is moving ok the problem must lie in the dev tank - the fix is still to replace the dev tank - good news is its plug and play comes with instructions on fitting and setting up .

We replaced the toner cartridge and the waste receptical and the little red light "Add Toner:" is still on and the machine won't copy. We have removed the cartridge and did the dance...

If it is a Kyocera toner than that is the problem. The key to turn the toner is different for the Kyocera toner cart. It will fit and appear to work but won't. Also turn the unit off and unplug for 15 sec. will reset and perform boot up procedures might help.

Kyocera FS-C5030N Led Printer My printer ran out of the blue (cyan) toner so I replaced the cartage carefully following are the cleaning steps like I've done successfully before with the other colors....

You need to reset the toner counter. This is done through the Menu button and selecting Life Counters. The instructions on how to do this are found in the Advanced Operators Guide on page 2-75. The link below will take you to the manufacture's website where you can download it.

Resetting the Toner Counter

The toner containers must be replaced when the printer displays the Low toner or Replace toner message which will be given depending on the color of toner. The Low toner message will be shown as a pre-warning that the toner is running out and the printer will soon stop, at that time showing Replace toner. If you replace the toner container before Replace toner is displayed, you must manually reset the toner counter as explained below. Note that if you reset the toner counter before the toner container is replaced, the subsequent toner warnings will not be indicated correctly.

I hope this is helpful,

The add toner light stays on with a new toner cartridge

Yes, the machine will only make single copies if the toner light is on. Was the toner cart genuine Copystar? Or perhaps Kyocera cart? The machine is made by Kyocera and marketed under both name brands, however, the toner carts are different for both machines. I have seen many times that aftermarket carts will not always work properly.
