Toner Problem

  • They got this message after they transported the machine from their old office
  • We sent one of our technicians to the customer’s site.
  • Tech inspected the Toner Recovery Box which is known as Waste Toner bottle as well
  • He found out that the cover of the Toner recovery box is not tripping the sensor because it’s broken causing the machine to detect that the cover is not closed.
  • He tripped the sensor and the machine did a power cycle and came back to ready.
  • The broken parts do not have part numbers since those are not usually something that will break. The only way to replace is to obtain the broken parts from a Donor machine
  • Tech found a workaround and that is to glue the broken parts especially the one that triggers the Toner recovery sensor.
  • That workaround resolved the machine’s issue
