Toner Sensor

These sensors are covered with toner when the cartridge is full, then become exposed over time as you print pages and the toner level declines. When the cartridge reaches a level set by the manufacturer, your low-toner indicator will light.

“Toner Error” will appear on your machine`s display if one or more toner cartridges are not installed or not installed correctly.
A Cartridge is Low or Cartridge is Very Low message displays when the amount of toner in the cartridge is below a certain percentage. This message is a reminder to have a replacement toner cartridge available. You do not need to replace the toner cartridge until print quality becomes unacceptable.
Optical toner sensing. The printer directs a light beam into the toner hopper through a window (light guide). If unblocked by toner, the light exits through an opposite window and is detected by a receiver. When the optical receiver detects light a high percent- age of the time, the printer concludes that toner is low.
On your computer, in the Windows Notification Area (bottom-right corner of your Windows desktop), right-click the printer icon. In the printer menu, select the Properties or Preferences option. In the printer settings window, the ink or toner levels are displayed for the currently-installed cartridge(s).
Verify the toner cartridge is installed correctly.

If you install a new toner cartridge but the “Toner Low”, “Replace Toner” or “Toner Ended” error indication remains, the toner cartridge may not be installed correctly. Reinstall the toner cartridge, referring to the instructions on how to replace the toner cartridge.

When “Toner Low” is displayed, prepare a new toner cartridge. If you do not have a new toner cartridge at hand and need printing before obtaining it, you can continue printing about 20 pages(*1) by opening and closing the front cover or the output tray. Print quality is not guaranteed.
You`ll be able to keep printing until the black toner runs out. When the black toner runs out, you won`t be able to print until you replace it.
Low ink can also be a reason why your printer is offline. Getting a low ink warning when you just had a refill recently can be alarming. You do not need to fret since this error message is meant to give you enough time to replace the cartridge.
Calibrating a printer ensures that the inkjet cartridge nozzles and printer paper are properly aligned to each other. This process ensures that colours stay rich, clear and the finished result is of the highest quality. Successful printer calibration also avoids what is commonly known as `device drift`.
The message TONER LOW appears on the display when one of the toner cartridges is running low on toner, but the cartridge has not reached its end of life. This is just an alert that the toner cartridge will reach its end of life in the near future.
As a general rule, when a printer runs out of ink or toner, it stops printing legibly. Depending on the printer model, the unit may look to replace one colour with another. For example, if you run out of black ink, your printer could replace it with blue, in order to still print the document you need.
The replacement toner is already used in another printer

A used toner cartridge will have the reset lever. But because it has been used in another printer already, its reset lever will not be in the right position to activate the printer to reset the toner level. Please use a new, unused replacement toner cartridge.

Expired Toner and Suggestions for Source of Toner
ANSWER : Hi Frank, I had a very similar question two weeks ago, but my “old beloved workhorse” is an HP Laserjet 4L. From the good old days! I too had made bad investments in “new but old truly HP” toner cartridges, hoping to coax more life from my printer. I ended up choosing to try a remanufactured cartridge from www.4inkjets.com. It was a gamble, but the website said they had a 100% satisfaction guarantee. And I can tell you they have lighting fast service. I’ve now printed 50 pages without a flaw. JOY! While the cartridges and technology are different, I suggest you try the same place. And good luck!
