How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced technical support :

Push down all the pins on the resetter. Depending on the printer model, there may be a button rather than pins. Keep pushing the pins/button on the cartridge until the LED lamp on the cartridge turns green, or it indicates with a beeping sound that the toner cartridge has been reset.
To fix toner streaks, first, print several blank pages to see if it fixes the print quality. Next, try cleaning the internal components of the printer such as the laser scanner/mirrors. If this doesn`t work, re-install the 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. This operation can be performed up to 5 times to continue printing.
Press the button on the chip-reset tool for several seconds until the LED light on the device goes off. Then, unlock the reset tool from the cartridge. Use the resetter with other cartridges and install them back into the corresponding slots in your printer. Voila!
Without a microchip, the cartridge can`t communicate with the copier. This means you can expect a change to your copier`s user experience; when loading a chip-less cartridge into a Canon copier, the copier will provide you with a warning that the toner isn`t produced by Canon.
Turn off the printer and remove the toner cartridge. Look inside the printer in the area below where the cartridge goes. The toner sensor is on the right-hand side.
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.
Inspect the inside of the printer for the connection point. With a lint-free/dry cloth lightly wipe the contacts on both cartridges and printer to remove any dirt, or residue being careful not to cause any damage. Replace the cartridges in the printer. Power the printer back on.
Verify the toner cartridge is installed correctly.

Locate the waste toner container sensor near the bottom of the Waste Toner Container. Clean the transparent plastic square. Clean the black sensors inside the printer, where the waste toner container sensor is located during normal operation. Power on the printer without the Waste Toner Container installed.
