Help! My machine won't copy or print

The toner cartridge light keeps flashing. I replaced the cartridge with a new one. Turned the machine off and on a couple of times to see if it just needed to be reset, but it still flashes, won't copy or print.

Check the old cartridge was empty or it was just showing wrong indication.( flashing ).

    haracteristics:



    The cartridge uses imported ink with the best quality. The ink adopts special
    formula and it is produced under highly purified environment and with the
    nulti-layer filtrating workmanship. 100% compatibility and NO clogging are
    guaranteed. The cartridge offers smooth printing under different circumstances,
    high color density, stunning colors, high color stability, and durability.





    Instructions:






    1. Replace
      cartrdiges according to the User' Nanual of your printer when the
      indication light on the printer is no or flashes.

    2. If the
      indication light keeps on or flashing after replacing new cartridges,
      please re-install the cartridges according to your printer's manual
      or restart your printer or computer.

    3. Please
      run nozzle test and print a few pages after installing the cartridge.

    4. When
      the ink hasn't been used out but the printer panel shows "Replace
      Black/Cyan/Yellow/Magenta Ink Cartridge", please open the cover of
      the printer. You will find that the print head will reset, close the
      cover then. The Printer will work again and it will not influence
      the quality of printing.






    Cautions:





    1. Do
      not touch the IC chip with your bare hand.

    2. Do not
      dismantle or refill the cartridge, as the printer can be damaged under
      such circumstance.

    3. Do not
      shake the cartridge that was installed before in order to prevent
      leakage.

    4. If
      ink is spilt onto your hands, please wash with soap. If ink gets into
      your eyes, please rinse thoroughly with clean water immediately.

    5. Do not
      touch the ink supplying port or the nearby area, as it may affect
      the printing result.

    6. Do not
      install the cartridge if leakage occurs.

    7. Do not
      install the cartridge after the expiry date.

I HAVE REPLACED TONER WITH THE CORRECT BROTHER TONER CARRTRIDGE AND THE MACHINE KEEPS TELLING ME TONER ERROR AND REINSTALL DRUM UNIT..HELP


Hi there,

Below are instructions that I have found from the internet. Hope that they will help.

  • Open the front cover of the printer.
  • Hold down the Go button for 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Then release the Go button
  • Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
  • Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back into the printer.
  • Close the front cover of the printer
  • Your drum unit should now be reset
  • MFC / DCP PRINTER SERIES

    1.Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge. Wait 1 or 2 minutes.
    2.Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge into printer.
    3.The error message "Change Drum Soon/Drum end soon" will continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replace the drum unit.
    4.To clear this error message, you need to reset the drum counter as instructed below.
    5.Make sure that the machine is turned on.

    For MFC users: To confirm you are installing a new drum, press 1. For DCP users To confirm you are installing a new drum, press the Up Arrow key

    7.When the LCD shows Accepted, close the front cover.
    8.Your drum is now reset.

    Resetting the drum unit will not improve print quality. It only resets your drum and allows you to continue to print. You decide when to replace the drum unit not the manufacturer!

I PUT A NEW TONER AND IT IS SAYING THERE IS EMPTY


Are you sure it was a full NEW toner cartridge?? Not an old one you had lying around.
If it was a new one the next question line goes as follows.... the machine will say in the display to "Rplace toner soon"...that dosn't mean its empty and to replace it..that means itsLOW and you should have a new toner cartridge "on-hand" because it will soon stop printing and say "REPLACE TONER". At that time the toner cartridge should be replaced, when it is installed a "fuse" on the cartridge blows and resets the toner light on the display. If you installed the toner cartridge when the display was saying "replace toner soon" you have blown the fuse in the new cartridge, now the machine has run about another 100 copies and says "replace toner"....but you now can't reset the light because the fuse is already blown because you may have replaced the cartridge too early!!! WHAT CAN YOU DO if that is the case...you can replace the fuse on the cartridge..its pretty easy to see, just replace it with another mini-fuse of the same rating written on the existing fuse..then put the cartridge in again..the fuse will blow, reset the light and away you will go. When all else fails read the operators manual.

I have a Samsung ML-2525 BW laser printer. Recently, the red bar second from the top started flashing and then it went solid. I thought this was because of the ink toner, and the cartridge was running low...


I guess it FixYa didn't accept my (very long, but totally correct) solution that I took the time to type. Because I refused to "sign in".
Here's the short version. Load Paper. The same thing happened to me. I replaced the toner cartridge with a new one (because of a FLASHING red light for several weeks) after the red light went to STEADY red. But it still would not print. The paper was "out". When I'd refilled the paper-tray, it printed fine. I had just ASSUMED that the steady-red light meant toner was finally OUT. WRONG! That steady-red light had nothing-to-do with toner; it meant "you're out-of-paper". Don't get confused like I did. Refill the paper-tray. Then take that expensive NEW toner cartridge OUT, and put the OLD toner cartridge back in. And keep using the "dregs" of the toner out of the old cartridge for several more weeks. And DON'T get confused by the paper-is-out condition making that red light STEADY.

I own a Sharp Al-1655CS about 2 yrs old, I have a problem, the balck toner powder is exiting the back of the machine and copies are very light. The copy count shows 12,000 copies made. I have repalced the...


These are very good machines so I would see no reason to replace it. Do you have the operators manual? If so look up the setting for "toner save mode" and make sure it is NOT turned on.
The drum unit is good for at least 18,000 pages so I would not suspect the drum. I even reset the counters on the drum units and can get up to 36,000 pages on them. Do you have the machine hooked to a PC for printing? If so is there any difference between printer density and copy density? If so then the issue is with the scanner density setting. If the copy and prints are both light then it is a print engine problem. If several toner cartridges are doing the same light print then I would suspect that your laser scanner optics are dirty. There is a narrow strip or slot just above the drum unit that the laser beam goes thru to write the image onto the drum. This should be cleaned and then the machine re-tested. If no improvement is see then the machine will have to be dis-assembled and cleaned which would require a compentant service technician.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Are the machine making noise that sounds like something is turning? If yes, that means that the machine replenishes the toner. Give her a little more offs and ons.

Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer Will Not Print


First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.

From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.

There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).

Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.

Lexmark e250dn printer, toner light is flashing, new cartridge


Could be photoconductor at end of life.

You shoul still be able to do a printer test print (press the arrow button).

Look on the printed pagesfor Toner AND Photoconductor.

These show as OK when new or very low count, and 100% when fully used.

If the toner is showing as 100% when you've just replaced it, either the chip is faulty, the wrong one, or if the cartridge is a remanufactured one possibly nor been replaced.
