I got two c5051's used. Replaced C5185's. Simple question I just can't find an answer to. Trying to figure out how to monitor the consumable levels. 5185 gave a bar with levels left under consumables on the panel. 5050 just says "OK". The 5050 web interface does show bars, but I'm not sure it functions the same (the bars all show full). Black and cyan were low in one and panel said needed replacement. Using your instructions to unlock the doors on the other machine with full ones, I swapped the two between the two machines. So now the black and cyan toner cartridges that were low and needing replacement are in the other machine. However it now shows them OK.
I assumed if I put low/empty ones in, it should immediately show them as low needing replacement. But they didn't.
I'd also like to be able to check current levels for ordering purposes, but it doesn't seem to give this info.
Any input or is this machine not going to give this info accurately like the 5185?
Thank you, Brian
