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.

The message Replace Toner will not clear from the display if: – The replacement toner cartridge is not installed properly. – A starter toner cartridge is installed as a replacement toner cartridge. – A toner cartridge from another machine or a used toner cartridge is installed as a replacement toner cartridge.
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.
Printers rely on ink or toner to produce images on paper or other media. The biggest difference between ink and toner is probably the fact that each of these works with a different type of printer. Inkjet printers rely on ink while laser printers rely on toner, but the differences don`t stop there.
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 most obvious sign of low toner cartridge is poor print quality. Streaking, lines or missed prints are all possible signs that cartridge replacement is imminent. If you have tried rocking the toner cartridge and are still getting poor prints, it is likely time to replace your cartridge.
A typical toner cartridge will produce anywhere between 2,500 and 4,000 pages, based on a coverage of 5% (roughly third of a page of double-spaced text). Dense pages filled with small font text or graphics will dramatically reduce this output and you may only get up to 1,000 pages per cartridge.
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).

The printers laser beams your print onto a metal drum. The drum uses static electricity to attract powdered toner to the drums cylinder. The drum rolls the toner onto the paper in the form of your print. The toner is melted & pressed onto the paper by heat from a fuser as it passes through its rollers.
Toner cartridges are notably faster than ink cartridges, using laser technology to produce accurate, sharp print quality. The accuracy of the heated powder means it also dries faster and is less likely to smudge while the page is still fresh.
Not only will it run its functions normally even when out of ink, it will print even if one or more color cartridges is empty. The image may not look great with a color missing, but it lets the user do it. Reader Nicholas notes that Canon`s laser printers do let you scan without a toner cartridge as well.
While all OEM toners for your printer are virtually identical due to the high standard of quality control, generic toner quality varies widely, depending on the remanufacturing process and brand.
If the ink level is sufficient, but the printer still does not print black ink, you may need to run a cleaning cycle. A cleaning cycle is a process that cleans the printer heads and removes any clogged or dried ink.
The No Toner message appears if the toner cartridge or the toner cartridge and drum unit assembly is not installed correctly. Remove the toner cartridge and drum unit assembly. Remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit, and reinstall the toner cartridge back in the drum unit.

Once a cartridge has been used until it is empty the chip records that the cartridge has no remaining ink or toner and so when it`s refilled, the chip needs to be reset. If this isn`t done, then the printer will fail to recognise the cartridge.

Problem with toner
ANSWER : Printers get dirty when dust or flakes collect on the printer. If left unchecked, the printer will start producing documents of low print quality. A toner cartridge has a life expectancy of roughly three to six months. It is a good idea to keep a few basic cleaning supplies on hand and clean the printer each time a toner cartridge is replaced. Some of the things needed in the printer cleaning kit would be some lint-free cloth, alcohol, a small brush, gloves, and a spray-n-wipe cleaner.

Toner Problem
ANSWER : There is a strip of plastic film that seals the toner bin to keep it from leaking in transport. If you don’t pull it out, then you will get blanks. Went to a customer once who had the same problem. He tried 3 cartridges and they were all printing blanks.

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!

Problem with toner
ANSWER : Was that the original problem? If not, then it’s possible you put too much grease on the heater assembly. That would act as an insulator. You just need a thin layer on the heater itself. Otherwise, you can adjust the temperatures in the control panel to apply more heat. Another thing to try is to feed from the Manual Feed tray. That will slow the printing by half and apply more heat.

toner reset problem
ANSWER : There’s a chip on each cartridge. You can just buy replacement chips and that will reset the count back to zero. Then you just watch for the print to start getting light and then you replace the cartridge or refill it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkWi2iqggyY
