HP 1600 Color Laserjet Toner

We have an HP1600 color laserjet which has worked pretty well for us for 2 years but yesterday it decided all 3 color toners emptied at the same time. Seems terribly coincidental that 3 toners died within minutes of each other. It wouldn't be such a big deal if the replacement cost wasn't a whopping $450 total.

Is it possible the device/function that detects cartidge toner levels is shot?

Well one way you could test is if you have another printer to put those toner cartridge in another printer.

Have you tried changing the supplies setting in the printer menu to OVERRIDE OUT ?
That should stop the message but on these printers there is also a mechanical measure of cartridge use.  It is suspicious that they've all emptied at the same time though.
