Savin 4018D add toner troubleshooting Points
In this article we will discuss the Savin 4018D add toner troubleshooting issue, how the toner supply unit works, what goes wrong and how to go about fixing it.
Explanation of how the Savin 4018D Toner Supply Unit Works
When a toner tube is placed inside the bottle holder unit (A) and the item is pushed in thoroughly, toner shutter (B) proceeds against the side (C) of the PCU. As soon as the toner bottle holder lever (D) is put back in the previous location, the cap (E) on the toner bottle is drawn away and saved in place by the chuck (F).
The toner supply mechanism carries toner away from the container into the development unit. The toner bottle posesses a spiral groove (G) that helps shift toner to the development unit.
As soon as the toner bottle holder is released, the chuck releases the toner bottle cover into its proper placement to stop toner from scattering.
The moment the bottle holder unit is pulled out to install a fresh toner bottle, the toner shutter shuts to block the opening as a result of pressure from a spring.

Possible cause of the Savin 4018D 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 solution beyond the toner cartridge could possibly be the toner supply unit. Once you flip the toner lock lever the supply unit removes the cap on the toner. As the toner swivels, the toner falls below into the supply unit directly into the developer unit.
Two things could happen here. To start off, the toner supply unit may very well neglect to put the cap back on top of the toner cartridge. This might lead to a mess when you get rid of the old toner. Consequently, when you finally place the fresh toner in, the prior cover remains and does not take off the cap from the new toner. Your next situation is when the clamp, (F) in the picture, won’t open completely around the pull off tab within the center of the toner lid. Therefore, you think the toner is locked in and therefore the cover is off except the cap always stays on.
Savin 4018D add toner troubleshooting Points for the toner supply unit
To troubleshoot you’ll have to remove the toner supply unit and the cap from the toner. This might be dirty therefore it is preferable to have an area capable to lay everything out which in turn can easily be wiped clean. Normally, the first thing to do is check inside the main area of the toner supply unit. Make certain the lid still is not contained within it. The next thing is to take out the lid from the toner. Next, determine if the clamp will grab the cover and take it into place. If it does not, usually you can prod in a little on the lock lever and it will enlarge the clamp enough to slip over the cap. If that may occur, you may then take it all apart and clean everything out to see if will begin opening completely or you can merely, just replace the supply unit.
