How to refill toner


One of the more expensive electronic supplies that we have at our home or office is what we use in the printing process. Many of us have gone to a laser printer, knowing that we are going to save money but it can still be expensive if we print enough that we need to purchase a toner cartridge on a regular basis. One of the things that you can do to save money is to refill the cartridge on your own. If you're wondering how to refill toner cartridges, here are some steps which can walk you through the process.


The first thing that you should do is to familiarize yourself with your printer so that you know how to remove the cartridge. Inspect the toner cartridge to see if there are refill holes, which will make the entire process much easier. Of course, regardless of whether there are refill holes or not, having a refill kit is going to provide you with what is necessary to fill it with toner so that you can begin using it again. These kits offer many advantages, including supplying the necessary toner in a bottle that is going to fit into the refill holes. This will help you to refill it without spilling it. If it is necessary to make a refill hole, you should proceed carefully and follow the instructions that are included in the refill kit.


Different printers may use different types of toners and you should verify that you are using the proper refill kit before you proceed. In some cases, the refill kit is going to be supplied by the manufacturer of the printer but in other cases, more of a universal refill kit is going to be necessary. You should refill the toner and then seal the holes so that you can replace it into the printer once again.


The final part of how to refill toner cartridges has to do with resetting the count and calibrating the cartridge. This is also something that may differ from one printer manufacturer to another. Refer to the documentation that was included with your printer refill or look up the information online so that you can do the appropriate set of procedures to ensure that your printer cartridge is aligned properly and is clean. Resetting it at this time will also let you know an approximation of when you will need to refill the toner cartridge again.
