I need to know if you are using a generic brand toner cartridge.
It sounds like you may be as this is usually caused by a defective or incompatible micro chip on the toner cartridge.
Buy a genuine cartridge or get the other cartridge replaced from where you purchased it.
I really siggest you buy a genuine.

    My ML 2151 will print a **** of paper and then the "invalid toner" message shows up. Sometimes when I change cartridges it will work fine but eventually be "invalid..." again.
    I do use generic or re-inked cartridges and have for 5 years and all has been well until the past 6 months... I now have a new printer and use this one as a back-up. Please help!

    There may be a batch of these generic/refilled toner cartridges with defective micro chips. I have come across it before and the best remedy is to buy a genuine cartridge or perhaps try a generic from another source.
    I am sure that a genuine will fix the problem.

Cartridges error on a lexmark


Error: "Invalid Toner Cartridge"; Error: "Invalid Refill"; Message: "Change Cartridge"
Solution
One of these error messages may appear on the printer display immediately after or shortly after a new toner cartridge is installed into the printer. Note: This may not be specifically a toner cartridge problem; the error may be due to a stuck cover open switch on the printer.

To see if the cover open switch is the cause of this problem, open the top front cover and observe the message on the printer's display panel. The display should read Close Door or Insert Cartridge.


If this message is not displayed, the top cover open sensor and switch will need to be replaced. In addition, the printer may have damaged the new toner cartridge. If the cover open sensor is not operating properly, a new cartridge can be incorrectly flagged as a refilled cartridge by the printer. If this happens, the new cartridge will continue to cause an Invalid Refill or Invalid Cartridge error even if you try reinstalling it or installing it into another printer. If this should occur, please contact the point of purchase of the cartridge to find out how to get the cartridge replaced.

Caution: If the cover open sensor is not operating, do not install another new toner cartridge until you have completed the directions below. Inserting another new cartridge can cause that cartridge to stop working as well. Should this situation arise, please take the following actions:


Place the original working cartridge (the empty or near-empty one) back into the printer. This should clear the error message.

Turn the printer off. Doing this will disengage the cover open sensor.

With the printer switched off, open the top lid and remove the old toner cartridge.

Now replace the old cartridge with another new Lexmark toner cartridge.

Power the printer back on. The printer should now read this cartridge as a newly installed toner cartridge and the error should be cleared. The printer and toner cartridge should function properly now, but the top cover sensor on the printer will still need to be replaced.

If your printer is still under warranty or covered under a service contract, please contact Lexmark Technical Support or your service provider for further recommendations and instructions. Until you can get the cover open switch replaced, remember to have the printer powered off whenever you replace the toner cartridge.

If the top cover switch appears to be working fine, or if you have followed the above steps and your printer continues to post an Invalid Toner Cartridge or Invalid Refill error, make sure you are using a new original Lexmark toner cartridge. A toner cartridge remanufactured or refilled by a third party can cause this error.

To help identify a refilled cartridge, look for the yellow label attached to the toner drum and the body of the toner cartridge. If this is damaged or removed, the cartridge may have been refilled.

If you are using a third-party refilled or remanufactured toner cartridge, it is recommended that you install a new Lexmark brand toner cartridge. Lexmark cannot guarantee the compatibility of any third-party toner cartridges with our printers.

OR

1 Switch on the Lexmark X83 printer.

2 Lift open the cartridge door at the front of the device, below the scanner unit. The printer automatically moves the cartridge carrier to the correct position.

3 Pull each ink cartridge toward you to unclasp it from the carrier. Lift the cartridge out of the cartridge carrier.

4 Clean the copper contacts on the bottom of each cartridge with a clean, dry lint-free cloth. Use a gentle, circular motion to clean the contacts.

5 Insert the ink cartridges back into the cartridge carrier. Push back firmly on each cartridge until it snaps into place.

6 Repeat each step in this procedure again. Close the cartridge door.

Printer shows Invalid Cartridge but it is not?


I ran into the same problem with the same printer. At first I was able to take it out and turn of the printer. Put the toner cartridge back in and it would work fine. But recently, so such luck, ended up buying a new toner cartridge and works great. Slightly disappointed as the old toner is 3/4 full but its also very old and has been in the computer since purchase date. I notices when I took the old toner out I could smell the ink like it was almost burnt. If changing cartridge doesn't work I recommend a HP. I only use this printer for bulk prints but my HP for everything else. HP is the way to go....

I have an HP Color LaserJet 2600n. Recently I had to replace the magenta cartridge. I bought a 3rd-party cartridge and the printer display shows that magenta is now "full." But, it won't...


I guess you should try to reset it ..and get the cartridge out and see if the toner (ink ) is getting out ..by pressing it (with the part where you removed the tape ) on some absorbent paper ..when it is working well it should leave a mark on the paper ..the mark should be not washed ...but real color and all...
If it do not ..just use a syringe and blow air in the cartridge ..just to agitate it ..and make sure it is not dry ..
Insert it back ..repeat the procedure until works ..and also if you have the procedure ..reset it ..

My HP Laserject Printer can print out the paper, but nothing show on this paper. And then this show the message "Paper Jam carridge check." So how do i fix this?


It sounds like the drum of your printer has a problem. Try inserting a new toner to see if it behaves the same way. If it does it is the drum and your printer is gone. If not, it could've been the toner.

I have refilled my color and black cartridges and now I am getting "hp inkjet f2400 invalid cartridge".


Hi:
This is why manufactures suggest you do not use refill ink kits. Because the ink is not always compatiable with the printers, they are some times to thick and will overflow and cause errors. There are ink sensors on the cartridges to determine the kind of ink in the cartridge. Try using only the manufature ink cartridges to as much as possible.

Hello, I have bought a new SAMSUNG toner for my SAMSUNG SCX-4300. Afther a while, my printer started to show the message "Invalid Toner" On the toner's barcode I found this: MLD-D1092S/ELS...


Generally this message occurs when using a generic toner cartridge that has the incorrect micro chip counter on it. Is the toner cartridge generic or genuine? In either case it needs to be returned for a credit or replacement.
Putting a genuine cartridge will rectify the problem i feel.
