I just replaced the toner for the first time on my Bizhub 215 and I keep getting a message that states “Toner Empty Supply Toner”. I’ve installed a new toner cartridge. Is the cartridge faulty?

Check ink or toner levels from the printer control panel

Look for an Ink drop icon ( or ), a Cartridge icon , an Ink Levels menu, or a Toner Level indicator.

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.
Each toner cartridge typically has a number printed on it somewhere. You can remove the cartridge from the printer to find this number. Alternatively, you can look for the cartridge number or type in your printer`s manual or online by doing a search for your printer`s model number.
Toner Save Mode allows the printer to use less toner on each page.
One of the good things about using toner is that while it can degrade over time, generally it does not expire (and there is usually no toner expiration date). Toner cartridges certainly last much longer than ink. Its powder structure means it doesn`t dry out like ink cartridges.
While toner cartridges are commonly refilled with results reported to be good, in at least some cases refilling without full remanufacturing may leave waste toner from each print and paper debris in the cartridge, potentially causing backgrounding problems and producing contamination in the refilled cartridge.
Printer damage – Refilling cartridges without taking professional help can increase the risk of causing permanent damage to your printer. It could either leak or clog your print head. And while refilling cartridges, if you break your printer by any chance, it could also void your printer warranty.
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).
Checking the consumption level

Check the status of consumables (consumption level) using the Touch Panel. When necessary, each level can be printed in list form. Tap [Utility] – [Check Consumable Life]. Check the status of consumables.

ANSWER : Thank you. You are a genius. Of course this is not a substitute for cartridge replacement but it is great for extending the life of the color cartridges and allowing you to continue to print until you can get new cartridges.

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!

toner loose
ANSWER : That would indicate the fuser is not getting hot. Of course, that should cause an error and shut down the printer. Could be a piece of paper wrapped around the heat roller preventing the transfer of heat to the printed sheet.

Toner not transferring
ANSWER : What mostly goes bad in toner cartridges is the drum wiper blade. They deteriorate in new sealed cartridges. Toner caking up, not so much.

toner cartrigdes and drums
ANSWER : You can, but there are good knock-offs and bad ones. I’ve run into ones that come totally empty. Ones that don’t have the chips installed that identify themselves to the printer. Ones that have sat on a shelf for years and fail on installation. I could go on, but I’m sure you get the idea. I use http://directpreciseimaging.com/ Mostly because I set him up in business and he’s local to me. I have very few problems with his products.

Toner cartridge full, printer displays: "empty needs replacing"
ANSWER : I once went to a customer who had a similar issue. They had installed new cartridges and judging from the box, they looked OEM. Strange thing was they felt empty when lifted and they were missing the chip on the outside that tells the printer it is installed and keeps track of how many copies were printed with that cartridge. The printer has no other way of knowing if the cartridge is full or empty.
