  1. En mi impresora no se pusieron los botones en color rojo, pero igual y funciono muy bien!, ñ_ñ Gracias!!

  2. As Brett said, on my machine it was not the ready light but the error light. But the procedure worked fine. Thank You very much.

  3. Was trying the trick, but on the stage 5 still were only 3 lights on. After I finished it keeps printing the same last pages I printed before the trick whenever I send anything to the printer. Could you please help me with it?

  4. Thank you so much that worked straight away. I was just about to go and buy another expensive toner cartridge until I came across your post. Thanks again 🙂

  5. Works! My printer stopped working saying that the toner was low. After resetting it I can keep on printing until the toner truly runs out.

  6. thank you so very very much, !!!!!!!!!

    this was perfect ! i was just about to take the cartridge back to ‘Office Works’ and shove it up their backside :(..
    but your instruction was from heaven THANK YOU q
