    same problem.. printer will not print because toner is out even though new toner cartridge. Status of k shows 0% other CMY show about 65%. Minolta / Konica 2350.... suspect mirror tab at end of cartridge indicates fill level.. not sure why problem with K only. Printer set to print when toner out but override does not seem to work.

Minolta 2430dl, cyan, magenta, and yellow toner cartridges all show empty. Black shows 42% remaining. How do I get printer to print?

Some printers will refuse to print _anything_, until you replace/refill _all_ of the empty toner cartridges. So, replace/refill.

Printer reports 'Toner Empty' error whereas actually the toner is not empty.

If its printing then it will continue printing till the toner finished.

If you have refilled then the message will continue may damage the printer also.

Toshiba E-Studio 202L cartridge does not match manufacture

Did you replace the waste (used) toner cartridge or the empty toner cartridge? These copiers have 2 "cartridges" .... one is waste (used) toner, the other is "new" toner for copying / printing etc. Some newer copiers have All in One units....Drum, New Toner, Waste (used) Toner. If you replaced the Waste Toner container (or dumped it) that should reset the code or error message.

How to reset Black Toner Empty Message on 2430Dl

There are many problems like that and its not recommended to change toner from one printer to another.
but you should try: put the old toner (emty) in again, then turn off the printer, change toner and turn on printer again.
if thats not helping, then maybe you have a old FW so you can try to update the firmware.
