There are a couple of possibilities here.

Is the printer on a 'page pack' contract ?

Are the toners really chipped for the printer you have ?
There are 8 printers (including the multifunction variants as yours is) that take a SIMILAR cartridge.

They vary in capacity and chip. Some remanufacturers don't realise and have been sening out cartidges for these with the wrong chip fitted.

There has also been a bad batch of chips (a while ago now).

The solution is quuite simple, contact your supplier tell them what the problem is (error message etc) and they should be able to check the cartridge in their test printer (a GOOD remanufacturer will have a test printer for each of the cartridges they produce - how could they test their product otherwise !!).

The default password is "00000" If this password does not work you can follow the following to reset it:
  1. Power OFF the machine using the power switch located on the right side of the machine, toward the back. Press the power switch to the (O) position.

  2. Press and hold the [OK] button on the Control Panel.
  3. Continue to hold the [OK] button and power ON the machine. Keep the [OK] button held down until the Ready screen is displayed. The password is now reset to the default Control Panel password, which is 00000.

    NOTE: There will be no confirmation message during or after the machine's power on sequence. However, if the procedure was performed correctly, the password has been reset.

sometimes the setting stays in the memory. Try shutting off the copier completely, let it rest for 3 seconds and then try again clear all buttons.

There are a number of possible causes of this.

1. Faulty chip on the cartridge, or badly fitted chip.
It will look obviously 'odd' if the chip is incorrectly fitted to such an extent that contact cannot be made between the cartridge chip and the printer. If it looks OK, and you still have the old cartridge, try swapping the chip (complete in its 'carrier') from the new one onto it. If the stays, it's the chip. Confirm this by putting the OLD chip back on the OLD cartridge, and you should get a different message telling you the catridge is empty.

2 Broken cartridge (I've seen quite a few like this - see pictures - the broken one had probably been dropped).

First picture - undamaged cartridge, note 'lug'.

Second picture - missing 'lug' (cartridge has probably ben dropped)

There is an opto sensor that checks the presence of the cartridge by 'looking for' this lug. The matching one at the other end of the cartridge has no effect.
It is possible to glue a broken lug back onto the cartridge, if the lug is missing, make something that matches the overall size and profile and glue that on - make sure the glue has set/hardened fully before putting the cartridge into the printer.

3 Faulty circuit board, or sensor in printer.

If you've tried the instructions under 1, and the error message stays the same through all the combinations of OLD chip, OLD cartridge, NEW chip, NEW cartridge, AND 2 is not applicable, this is where you are. It could be the opto sensor that 'looks' for the cartridge - you could 'short' this out (be careful to do this on the correct side of the device). Otherwise its a circuit board problem.

This is probably a toner cartridge related problem.

Especially if this effect is seen only through 1 colour.

If this this is through all colours, look for a piece of paper (or other item - I've seen paper clips, hair grips, pencils, and a small childs toy INSIDE printers!) in the printer that could be 'wiping the toner off the page before it goes though the fuser.
