What is a Laser Toner Cartridge?
Toner cartridges are used in laser, printers, photocopiers and fax machines. A toner cartridge or laser toner as they are sometimes called, contain toner powder, a fine, dry mixture of plastic particles, carbon, and black or other
Toner cartridges come in 4 different colours cyan, magenta, yellow, and black.
Toner cartridges can be very expensive, sometimes more than the printer itself. Some people dispose of their printer when it is out of toner and replace the entire machine (Although most laser printers only come with toners 1/3 full).
The best solution to save on costs is to purchase compatible or remanufactured toner cartridges.
What is a drum unit?
Drum units are what is used to transfer the toner electrostatically onto the paper, using heated rollers during the printing process. This process creates higher quality prints for speed in comparison to inkjet. Drum units usually last much longer than toner cartridges, you will often change your toner cartridges 3-4 times before needing to replace the drum cartridge. If you need to replace your drum cartridge you will notice a decrease in the print quality. If you notice blank spaces, missing spots, or streaking, it is most likely time to replace your drum unit. You may also get a warning or alert depending on your printer model “Drum Near End” or “Replace Drum”.
What is page yield?
Page yield is the estimated amount of pages that will be printed per cartridge.
How long will my toner cartridge last?
Depending on how much your home or office prints each day, your toner cartridge could last anywhere from 6 months to a couple of years.
When should you replace your toner cartridge?
Old toner cartridges can wear down over time, especially refillable ones. With refillable toner a hole is simply drilled and refilled with toner, parts are not inspected, checked or replaced. Old cartridges can develop cracks, and holes over time, causing toner to leak into the machine. If you notice spots or smears on your prints, replace your toner cartridge quickly so you do not damage your printer.
Most new laser printer models will give you a warning message, telling you the toner cartridge is running
Some manufacturers include toner cartridges that come with drum units, that way every time your toner runs out you are replacing the toner and the imaging drum.
