When the toner cartridge is near the end of its life, white streaks or light print occurs. The LCD displays the warning message, Toner Low. Thoroughly shake the cartridge from side-to-side 5 or 6 times to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge and temporarily improve print quality.
This is not intended to be a long term method of correction, but meant to assist your printing needs until you obtain a new cartridge assembly.
Open the front cover.
Pull the toner cartridge out.
Thoroughly shake the cartridge from side-to-side 5 or 6 times to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.
If toner comes into contact with your clothing, wipe the toner off with a dry cloth and wash your clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
Do not touch the green underside of the toner cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.
Holding the toner cartridge by the handle and slowly insert the cartridge into the opening in the printer.
Tabs on the sides of the cartridge and corresponding grooves within the printer will guide the cartridge into the correct position until it locks into place completely.
Close the front cover. Ensure that the cover is surely closed.
