  • Page 49: Life Of Toner Cartridge And Drum Unit

    Life of Toner Cartridge and Drum Unit <Life of Toner Cartridge> This machine detects the remaining toner only by the dot count and the number of rotations of the developer roller. The function to detect by the light sensor is not installed. As this machine is not equipped with a toner sensor as conventional models are, it manages the level of remaining toner by dot count during printing and the number of rotations of the developer roller.
  • Page 50 <Life of Drum Unit> The end of life of the drum unit is determined based on the "drum counter" or the "number of drum rotations", whichever is larger. Printing does not stop even when the drum unit reaches the end of life. The drum counter is based on the total printed pages on each drum unit.
