I'm ***** ***** and looking way to disable the stupid error

Customer Question

Hi! I'm ***** ***** and looking for a way to disable the stupid error I"m getting on my Xerox Phaser 6128MFP laser printer. I got the "replace Cyna Toner" message and just it's saying "invalid toner" I just want to print in black and white- but can't get around the toner message. I replaced the cyan with the same toner we've used for years.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The screen says "Invalid Toner/ Cyan" and then the red light is on and won't let me print anything I've turned the printer on and off, put the empty cartridge back in, checked the new toner several times to make sure it was locked in place...still have the error message and am dead in the water until this stupid error message goes away. Is there a way to override it? I don't even need to use cyan to print in black and white

This indicates a faulty toner cartridge, which is not uncommon with third party cartridges. What I would suggest is replacing it with an brand new OEM cartridge. Third party cartridges and refilled cartridges can do damage to the printer over time. Even in the short term, they don't always have a reset chip on them that is correctly programmed. And this is necessary to reset the counter. If it didn't do the reset when you installed it, then it didn't have that chip, or the chip wasn't working. And that chip only works once and then blows like a fuse. So replacement of the cartridge, preferably with a new OEM cartridge, would have the best chance of solving the problem.
