Hello Oswal,

If you are getting light prints and get a check consumables message on the printer display, I would suggest reseating the toner cartridge using the steps in the link HERE. While the cartridge is out of the printer, you can give the cartridge a gentle shake to make sure the toner is evenly distributed. If reseating the toner cartridge does not resolve the issue, you can try replacing the toner to see if the message clears.

If you are getting IP warnings on the printer/computer screen, you can try setting a static IP address on the printer using the steps in the link HERE. You might have to reserve the printer's IP address in your router settings once the address has been set.

If you continue to have problems, I would suggest contacting support over the phone at 1-800-652-2666. Our agents would be happy to check what might be causing the issue.
