Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Perhaps the lock lever, shown in this illustration of the drum-and-cartridge assembly, is in the wrong position:
check on that first. The two blue arrows shown in that illustration have to be moved as shown, in order to remove the toner cartridge from the drum assembly... or, in order to fit the cartridge into the drum again.
