In this article we will discuss the Savin 4018 Toner Empty troubleshooting issue, how the toner supply unit works, what goes wrong and how to go about fixing it.
Explanation of how the Savin 4018 Toner Supply Unit Works
When a toner tube is located in the bottle holder unit (A) and the equipment is pushed in correctly, toner shutter (B) relocates up against the side (C) of the PCU. As soon as the toner bottle holder handle (D) is put back in the previous position, the cap (E) on the toner bottle is taken away and kept in position by the chuck (F).
The toner supply mechanism transfers toner from the container to the development unit. The toner container possesses a spiral pattern (G) that helps advance toner to the development unit.
When the toner bottle holder is released, the chuck releases the toner bottle cap to its appropriate placement to prevent toner from spreading.
The moment the bottle holder unit is brought out to add a new toner bottle, the toner shutter shuts to block the opening as a result of pressure from a spring.

Possible cause of the Savin 4018 add toner message
1. Empty toner cartridge
2. Defective toner – (Toner that has gotten moisture in it can clump and not work through the supply unit.)
3. Defective toner supply unit
4. Defective toner clutch
5. Defective developer unit or sensor.
Those are probably the 5 most popular causes but, off course, with any problem, there is always more things that can come up.
Probably the quickest and most affordable option beyond the toner cartridge is the toner supply unit. When you flip the toner lock lever the supply unit takes out the cap on the toner. As the toner rotates, the toner drops downward through the supply unit within the developer unit.
Two things can occur here. First of all, the toner supply unit may possibly fail to put the cap back over the toner cartridge. This may lead to a mess should you get rid of the old toner. Therefore, when you put the fresh toner in, the earlier cover is still there and does not take out the cap from the new toner. Your next scenario is when the clamp, (F) in the picture, will not open all the way around the pull off tab in the center of the toner lid. Therefore, you think the toner is locked in and the cap is off however, the cover always remains on.

To troubleshoot you will want to take out the toner supply unit and the lid within the toner. This might be dirty so it is best to possess an area made ready to put everything down and consequently can be easily cleaned. Of course, the first thing to do is check inside the entrance of the toner supply unit. Be certain that the cap still isn’t stuck within it. The next thing is to remove the lid from the toner.

In the event that may happen, then you can take it all apart and clean everything out to see if will begin opening all the way up or you can simply, just replace the supply unit.
