Toner Problems

  • Customer got a “low black toner” message
  • They replaced it with a new Black Toner Cartridge and they are getting “Add toner” message
  • They need a tech A.S.A.P.
  • We sent a tech the same day
  • Tech checked the toner and it was the correct one and it’s OEM
  • Tech installed the old cartridge and there’s no “add black toner” message but it’s back to “Lower toner” message
  • He installed back the New Toner and got the “add toner” message again.
  • That means the new Toner they ordered online is “Defective on Arrival” since it triggers “add black toner” which means it’s not detected
  • They instead requested for a refund from that company and ordered from us in Clear Choice Technical Services.
  • They installed the Toner they got from us and that resolved the issue
