Most Lexmark laser printers include a 'Toner Low' warning system. It informs customers that a replacement toner cartridge will be required soon. In most cases, you can continue using the printer while this message is displayed.
If the "88 Toner Low"or "88 Replace Cartridge" message remains even after installing a brand new toner cartridge (or a known existing “healthy” toner cartridge), the printer may need a firmware update to facilitate efficient toner usage.
Restart the printer and see if the error will clear. If it doesn't clear, proceed with the next step.
Check the type of error:
Click your printer model below to download the zipped file containing executable file, firmware, and “Read me” files. Save it to a known location or folder in your computer.
Unzip the file and follow the instructions in the "Read me" file to update the code levels. If you experience difficulties or if the error persists, contact Lexmark Technical Support.
