The toner cartridge has a chip that calculates the estimated usage of the toner and once it reaches it's capacity (per estimation), it will not print. The only thing you can do is to buy a new cartridge or buy refill toner that comes with a reset chip.
A lot of printer cartridges have microchips which make them unusable once the machine believes it to be finished, mainly to discourage refilling. maybe the chip has malfunctioned or the cartridges were used already and refilled or something. there are chip resetters , perhaps you should speak to the supplier, they may refund or replace or reset the chip for you.
The only way to reset the toner error is to replace the counter chip on the toner cartridge. These should go for about $10 a piece. Otherwise, you can set the engine to continue on error, and ignore the blinking light. Better yet, I put a piece of electrical tape over it. You can still read the status on the LED's, but not have your wife complain about it. Saves you $40.
You need to be careful about the size of the grains in the toner. I would use toners from other printers of the same make and model series, but when you go outside them you really need to know the exact natue (specifications) or the toner you use. The chips just reset the counter that the printer tracks to tell you when you are just about out, but they are not critical for operation, but you must set the print engine to continue on error.
