Replacing a Toner Cartridge

With average use, the life of one toner cartridge is about 5,000 pages. This is based on
printing typical word processing documents that have about 5% page coverage with
the print density adjusted to the factory default (see page 80).
The life of your cartridge may vary depending on how it is used. If your average
document contains a lot of graphics, shading or bold printing, then the life of the toner
cartridge will be shorter.

When to replace a toner cartridge

Before replacing the toner cartridge
You can use the following simple procedure to extend the life of the cartridge:
Remove the toner cartridge from the printer.
Hold the cartridge as shown on page 113 and then tilt it slowly back and forth to
distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.
Reinstall the toner cartridge in the printer and continue printing.
Check the printed pages again.
Replacing a Toner Cartridge
To conserve toner, turn on the economy mode setting for printing drafts. A
document printed in the economy mode uses less toner so the print is lighter.
The economy mode setting is like the draft mode found on some dot matrix
printers (see page 79).
Even if the printed text is satisfactory, you will have to replace the cartridge in the
near future. Be sure you have a new cartridge on hand.
If the printed text is still streaked or faded, it is time to replace the toner cartridge.
Follow the procedure in the next section to replace the toner cartridge.
