What should I do if my laser printer toner cartridge is leaking?

The Most Common Problem with a Laser Printer Toner Cartridge

Most things deteriorate with age. A laser printer toner cartridge is not an exception to this probability. Laser printer toner cartridges are well manufactured, however, in the end they are made from plastics. Laser printers and copiers generate heat when they run. This heat can eventually get to the plastic casing of the laser printer toner cartridge leading to their most common malfunction – leaks.

Older laser printer toner cartridges can develop cracks or even holes. These cracks and holes will lead to toner leaking into the machine and poor print results. If you are noticing smears in your prints from your laser printer, your laser printer toner cartridge may be leaking. If so, replace it with a new cartridge. You can buy a refillable or non-refillable cartridge, but replace it quickly so you do not risk damaging your copier.
