What does the status message "Used Supply in Use" mean for a LaserJet M1212nf?

I just tonight got the status message at my printer, "Used supply in use". I've never seen this before and can't seem to find any reference to it. In addition, the last three status codes in the Event Log (accessibly by browser) are 99.106B, 10.3400 and 10.3300.

Hello courtneypk,

 

The "Used Supply in Use" means that the printer belives the toner cartridges installed in the printer have been previously used in another printer.

 

Have you recently changed the toner cartridge on this printer? Are you having issues printing?


The event log errors are likely telling us the same thing that the "Used supply in use" is telling us and that as far as the printer is concerned the toner cartridge is a used cartridge, however you should be able to still print without problems.

Thanks for your reply. No, I haven't changed anything recently on my printer; the yellow LED has been blinking for a while, indicating that the toner is low, but nothing else. I tried printing and was able to print, but I also got a message window telling me a Used Supply was in use. Looks like I'll have to change the toner cartridge sooner anyway; I've just been waiting for the obvious signs to show that there is little toner left, like streaking of the printout.
