I tried the toner reset sequence numerous times. With printer off open the toner door, hold the go button and turn printer on, all lights will turn on, keep holding go button until status light goes off, press go button twice, the paper, drum and toner light will come on, press go button 6 times, status light will turn red, close toner door. Next I tried the hard reset by turning printer off when it is on by quickly removing power source and unplugging it from the computer, waited ten minutes and plugged it back in, turn the printer on. None of this worked. While waiting for your answer, I put the old toner cartridge in the printer and tried the toner reset sequence. It then reset itself, but the print was very light. I put the new (remanufactured) cartridge in the printer and the toner error light came on again. I did not have another toner cartridge to try so I emptied the toner in the new cartridge into the cartridge that would allow the printer to reset. It printed but it was very light. I shook the cartridge several times and it still printed light. I changed the drum and printed 5 copies. By the time it printed the last 2 pages they were totally blank pages. As mentioned in the original contact, the printer initially ran out of toner, we changed the cartridge and it printed fine for about an hour and then the toner error light came on and it stopped printing. The toner reset sequence has always worked before. I think we have a more serious printer problem.

How old is the printer?

Unfortunately, the error that you are experiencing is an internal failure which would require repair/replacement. The bad news is that your printer is outside of warranty and it would cost more to repair the printer than to buy a new one.
