But a simple solution can save both money and time. You can refill the cartridge by yourself or from the store near you. It’s sound simple and easy.
How to Refill Cartridge
If you want to refill the cartridge from the store, then you do not need to know how to do it. But when you are trying to do it yourself, then you must know the technique. There is no such way that seems complicated to you.
Even it will work as well it was before. So to make your printer work again, get the stuff and refill it in a moment following the steps I’m going to describe below.
Before you start the process you must know most of the toner cartridge can be refilled for a few times. To get the best print quality it should be 2 or 3 times for a single toner cartridge. In every toner cartridge, there is a fill hole. It is also known as a holding tank. So, don’t get confused about it.
This hole is used to hold the powder for the print. Some model of the printers does not have such a hole. For making a hole you need to use some tools which used as a burn tool. Make a hole with the tools in the cartridge. Before doing it you must ensure that you pick the right point to make the hole.
Even these types of tools are available in the shop, which specially used to do such things. Some companies are providing these tools with the cartridge as well. So, you got the same situation. But we are talking about the toner cartridge which already has a hole. A plug is securing the hole.
There is a cartridge toner hopper. So, it’s time to pour the toner. There is some toner available which comes with the refill kit. Using these kits, you can pour the toner. These toner kits can help you to pour the toner without making any kind of a mess.
For this, a funnel cap you will find which comes with the set of the kit. These cap screws on top of the toner which can make a strong bond to pour. Now, take the toner bottle. Do not shake the bottle. Otherwise, you will spread all the toner powder everywhere. So, complete the process gently.
Even squeezing the bottle also makes the place messy. Just tap the side of the toner after pressing the funnel cap when you are going to fill the hole. You have to do it until the hole is full or the bottle is fully empty.
You are almost done with the process. It’s time to seal the hole which filled with the powder. There are two types of things you can do for resealing the hole. For the pre-made fill hole, you have nothing more to do.
Remember, you pulled out a plastic plug from the hole? Yes, you removed it to open the hole. Just reinsert it in the hole. You are done the resealing process. On the other hand, you have to do something different for the hole you made yourself manually.
With the kit, there is special aluminum tape. Using this tape is a great solution to seal the hole. It will secure enough to do the printing job. Finally, shake the cartridge. It will help to distribute the toner in every corner.
Now place the cartridge into the printer and you are done to do the printing again. Your printer is now fully functional. See, it is simple as I said earlier. There is no hassle to accomplish all the steps.
When you buy a new printer, the print will be smooth and fine. But after using it few weak or months, the print going to be fade and faint. So, it’s an alarming situation for the user of the printer. It indicates that the printer is almost out of toner.
So, changing the toner cartridge is not a wise decision at the moment. Because most of the toner cartridge has the refill option. It sounds cool. As a result, a user can use it for multiple times after refilling it.
The great news is, There is nothing change you will find about the printing quality after refilling it manually. Following all the steps I discussed earlier will help you to do this easily.
