I just replaced the black toner in our Phaser 6125 with a Xerox original toner (like we always do), but this time is says "Invalid Black". Why?
I noticed that the old one has the number 106R01334, where as the new one has the number 106R01338, but is says Phaser 6125 on the package.
Is there any fix for this? I don't what to buy another original toner just to try it out, as they are really expensive. Is the solution to start using "compatible" toners for 1/10 the cost?
Here is a picture of the new original toner and package:
Hmm... the picture is there, when I edit the message, but I just get a yellow triangle, when it is posted...
Anyway, the question is simple enough without the "proof of original toner" picture.
Thanks for the reply, but how am I supposed to know that? It doesn't say anything special on the box, it simply says "Phaser 6125", no region or anything...
I have bought it in a retail shop, but it has been sitting on the shelf for some time (as I like to keep a spare toner, so I have it, when I need it), so I can't remember which shop it was.
If I in the printer web interface click "order supplies", it takes me to this page:
Which lists 106R01338 as the black replacement...
Look at the list with toner cartridges around the world:

24E TONER CARTRIDGE DMO (GDI) 6125 (Y) 106R01337
where DMO means Development Market Operations (East Europe and other), EU is for West Europe.
I still don't see, how I am supposed to know that as a consumer.
The order supplies link to 106R01338 and the box doesn't say anything about region...
One think is for sure, I am not paying another 100 EUR for another original Xerox toner. I can see you can buy new chip for 2 USD or a "compatible" toner for 11 EUR. If that works fine, am I probably done buying original Xerox for good, although I have always bought original toner and ink for the past 30 years, but this just annoys me too much.
Thanks again for the input Gabi.
