  • Reseat the toner if you get printing issues like excessively light printing and a Replace Toner error message shows up. Cycle the printer power as you did in Step 1 and check for messages like “Magenta Toner Replace Soon,” “Magenta Toner Error” or similar. It merits attempting to reseat the toner before going to the cost of replacing it. Press the Menu button until “replace Toner” shows up. Choose the color toner cartridge and open the front cover. It pulls forward. Pull the toner cartridge out by the colored handle. Rock the toner tenderly and put it back in once more. Perform this task over a newspaper, since toner can spill. Replace the toner by adjusting the arrows, pushing the toner in until it locks and closing the front cover.
  • Try the print job again and replace the toner if the print issues proceed.
