Try turning your copier off & back on. Allow the machine to cycle after turning it back on - until it comes to ready or displays add toner signal again. You can try this three or four times as it sometimes takes the machine a few trys to advance the new toner to the toner sensor. If after 4 attempts you are still getting the add toner message - you may have a dirty or faulty toner sensor. The toner sensor is located inside the developing unit that you are loading toner into. Toner sensor is usually located on the bottom of the developing assembly & is held in by 2 scews. It can be cleaned with a dry cotton rag & reinstalled. 90% of the time power cycling the copier a few times will solve this problem.

Do you have a new toner cartridge loaded? The red/orange light will blink when toner is low, even if everything else is working fine. Try printing out a test sheet and see what that tells you about your toner level. (Test sheep prints by holding the orange button down a second or two and releasing.)
Since I'm mainly printing drafts for my own use, I've just let the light blink while I eke out whatever I can from the remaining toner (occassionally removing the cartridge and shaking it -- being careful of clothes and surroundings -- to re-distribute the toner on the inside.
There are two contact on the right wall off the printer cartridge chamber area. They can get pushed in causing the printer cartridge to not read correctly. Take a small Flathead screwdriver and bend them up so the cartridge ink level can be read.
