Toner adhering to the face and surrounding area of the low toner sensor in a copier/printer machine can lead to a situation in which the toner sensor fails to recognize when the machine toner dispenser is nearly empty. The machine is then unable to signal to the operator that it is time to add more toner, and as a result, copy density and quality falls off drastically. This usually results in an unscheduled maintenance call.
