Brother DR720 Reset Instructions


Do not panic when the printer does not recognize a newly installed DR720 drum cartridge. The drum unit might be in perfectly working condition and all you will need to do is to tell your printer that you have replaced a new drum. Here is the step-by-step instruction on how to manually reset the printer to accept the drum unit:

1. Keep the printer power on and open the front cover. Leave the cover open during the process
2. Press the “Clear” button
3. Press “1” to confirm that you’re installing a new drum unit
4. Close the front cover when the LCD displays “Accepted”
5. Turn the printer off and wait for couple minutes
6. Turn the printer on again and the machine should clear the recognition error and ready to use

If operating from a touch screen printer:

1. Press “Stop/Exit” to interrupt the error message
2. Press “Menu”
3. Press “Up” or “Down” arrow key to display Machine Info
4. Press “Machine Info”
5. Press “Reset Menu”
6. Press “Drum”
7. Press “Yes” when the machine displays “Reset Drum?” then press “Stop/Exit” again to complete the resetting process

These steps are pretty straightforward and easy to operate. If the above steps failed to work, check with your drum suppliers and see if the cartridge is defective and needs to be exchanged.

Okidata C5100 Toner Sensor Error – How to Fix It


Recently, we have been getting a number of inquiries in regards to the toner sensor error for the Okidata C5100 series printers. The problem usually occurs after you replace the toner cartridge or a new drum unit and it would not allow one to print when the toner sensor error is showing. Since this issue appears to occur more frequently for many of our customers as the Okidata C5100 printer is aging, we want to write this blog post to help more of you in the cyber-sphere who may also run into this problem.



The problem with the toner sensor error is usually with the toner cartridge itself. When you take a look inside the lock of the toner cartridge (the handle on the right side of the toner container) there is a white piece of plastic within a hole at the side. During the machine warm up or even during printing this white plastic piece turns upwards and can sometimes get stuck in upwards position inside the handle, which would cause the printer to display a toner sensor error. 

Although the best way is to replace the toner cartridge itself with a well-built, high quality toner (check us out at www.toner-spot.com), to solve this problem temporarily in order to print, we recommend opening and closing the handle and check that the white plastic is back down.

The toner sensor error can also be caused by dirty sensors both on the toner cartridge itself and inside the printer (the metal sensors inside the printer on the right). Cleaning the sensors with a cotton swab or lint-free dry cloth on both the toner and the printer has worked for many of our clients. Let’s face it, your printer is getting quite old and when is the last time you cleaned the inside of your printer?

If neither of the two solutions provided above have worked for you, and you are in desperate need to do a print job, the last thing that you can do is to disable the toner sensor manually on your Okidata C5100 printer:

1. Turn machine on while pushing and holding the (+/-) menu buttons at same time
2. Menu window will show "OKI USER"
3. Scroll to "Engine Dialog Mode" and push the “Enter” button
4. "Diagnostic Mode xx.xx.xx S-Mode is indicated
5. Press (- or +) button until (“ENGINE = PARAMETER SET 2”) is displayed
6. Push “Enter” button
7. "TONER SENSOR = ENABLE" is displayed
8. Push “Enter” button
9. Press (- or +) "TONER SENSOR = DISABLE" is displayed
10. Press "ON-LINE/CANCEL" buttons at same time
11. (*) is displayed
12..... READY

3. Insert the tray back to the slot and push completely back into the printer

4. Access Control Panel, make sure “Envelope” is indicated and the size is correct, press “OK.”

If you need to change the setting, select “Change Setup” then press “OK,”
Select “Envelope” then press “OK,”
Select the correct setting then press “OK.”

5. Check on the printer driver, make sure select “Envelope” and “Tray 1” before printing

Printing envelopes from Tray 2-4:

1. Pull the desired Tray completely out from the printer

2. Insert envelopes size #10 commercial, C5, or B5 in the tray flap side down. Adjust paper guides to fit the envelopes. Make sure the top of the envelopes line against the left side of the printer. Load no more than 75 envelopes at a time

Again, for Monarch and DL envelopes, please them in the tray flap side down with the top of the envelopes entering first

3. Insert the tray back to the slot and push completely back into the printer


4. Access Control Panel and select “Paper Tray Setup” then press “OK,” select designated tray number then press “OK.”

Make sure the size is correct and the paper type is set as “Envelope.”

If need to change the setting, select “Change Setup” then press “OK,”
Select “Envelope” then press “OK,”
Select the correct setting then press “OK.”

Xerox WorkCentre 4250/4260 Printer – How to Customized Fax Settings


The Xerox WorkCentre 4250 series and WorkCentre 4260 series are designed for medium to high usage environments. The 4250 and 4260 are two basic models and the C, S, X, and XF versions come with additional features. Memory upgrade is also available for these printer models.


Users can change a few fax default settings that might not be available on other printer models for specific needs. For instance, the “Toll Save” feature can instruct the machine to send out stored faxes during cheaper rate hours, therefore saving expenses. Another example is  the “Auto Reduction” feature that can reduce the document in order to fit the paper.

To adjust the fax settings, follow the below steps:
Tools > User Interface > Fax Service Settings > Transmission Defaults

Toll Save
This feature enables the stored fax documents to be sent during the off-peak cheaper rate period. Select “On” then indicate the Send Start date and time and End date and time.

Batch Send
This feature enables the machine to send several fax jobs to the same destination during one transmission. Users can benefit from turning this setting on by cutting down call connection charges since the connection time has been reduced.

Auto Reduction
Under Fax Service Settings, select Incoming Fax Defaults then Auto Reduction. Select On to enable the machine to automatically reduce the document to fit the paper when the incoming fax is longer than the selected media.

If the Auto Reduction is set to “Off”, over the limit document or any image at the bottom of the paper will be discarded according to the Discard Size setting. The Discard Size can be adjusted range from 0 to 30 mm.

E-mail/Fax Forward
Users can set to receive an email for the incoming and/or outgoing fax content with the following steps:

1. Select either Forward Transmitted Faxes, Forward Received Faxes or Forward All
2. Select either Output Format PDF or Output Format TIFF
3. Enter the forwarding email address then select Save

The machine can also set to send documents when polled, even when the user is absent. However, by enabling this function, a Polling Passcode is required in order to access the documents stored for Secure Polling.

HP LaserJet 4345MFP Series Light Printing Issue and Solutions


The HP LaserJet 4345 series printers are multi-functional units designed for medium to high usage office and home environments. It can print, copy, scan, and fax. In addition, print speed can reach up to 45 pages per minute. Most of our customers are very happy with this sturdy printer series and the accompany Q5945A toner. The MICR toner version is also available for check printing needs that require magnetic inks.


However, a recent question that one of our blog viewers raised was lighter printed character after switching to a new printer. When comparing the printed results with the previous printer, the images also appear darker than the ones produced by the old printer.

One of the possible reasons is that newer printer versions, including MFPs have been optimized on the detection function and printed outcome, thus the new detection setting could have caused the differences. To match the current images with the ones printed by the previous printer, simply follow the below steps to adjust settings on the driver:

1. Go to the Finishing Tab
2. Select Print Quality
3. Select Custom
4. Click Details
5. Click the check box to change the setting to Print Images Lighter

If cause of the light printing issue is not due to the change of machine, the toner might be low in ink. One way to temporary solve the problem is by taking out the cartridge and gently shake it to re-distribute the ink inside. This should cover for few more regular printout pages and provide some time while waiting for the new toner to arrive.
