REFILLING COLOUR LASER TONER CARTS

and any other experiences please.

As photo printing is no longer a prerequisite I have decided to abandon ink jet and move over to one or other of the budget colour laser printers.

So in time I guess a replacement/recharge of toner will loom so any comments/tales of caution would be appreciated.

The details of refilling will vary from brand to brand and with the models within a brand.

As a generality, remember that laser toner is an EXTREMELY fine powder and blows away in the slightest draught. Be very careful about contamination of surfaces, particularly on and around the cartridges. Contamination between different colours, especially black, into the others can be devastating.

As a thought, only refill one colour at a time and give a day or so for the dust to settle before attempting another.

I have filled black cartridges for my printer several times and have found that if the empty cartridge is gently stood on top of the bottle of toner and the the two gently inverted allowing the toner to tip into the cart ride slowly most of the escaping air and fine dust will go up into the bottle and not all over the room, It can be a messy job if you are not careful. Wear gloves and a dust mask, dont wear your best white suit!
