Hi Turned2ash,

 

Welcome to our Canon Forum! 

 

The "Low Cartridge Level" message on your Color imageCLASS MF743Cdw notifies you that a toner cartridge needs to be replaced soon. This message allows you to make sure that you have a replacement toner cartridge ready. We suggest you replace the toner cartridge if you see this message before you start to print a large job.

 

You can specify to continue printing using the printer's operation panel when the amount remaining in the toner cartridges is low using the process below:


<Menu> -> <Preferences> -> <Display Settings> -> <Action When Warning> -> <Low Cartridge Level> -> Select <Continue Printing> -> <Apply> -> <Yes> ->HOME

 

You can also set the Color mode to black and white:

 

<Menu> -> <Function Settings> -> <Printer> -> <Printer Settings> -> <Color Mode> -> Select <Black & White> -> HOME

 

If you need help more help, please contact our support group at 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666) Monday-Friday from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm ET, excluding holidays.

I have same model and it shows low on toner BUT I checked the consumables and it shows 90% Black and 40% Color remaining. I understand the percentage may not be exact but 40% is hardly considered “low”. Is there a way to adjust how the printer defines “Low”?
