If you've refilled your toner cartridge, but for some reason, the printer is not working, there could be a few different reasons why. Here are three reasons why your toner cartridge may not be printing properly:
1. You've filled your toner cartridge one too many times. Eventually, every toner cartridge has outlived its usefulness and you'll see banding, gaps or splotches on your printouts.
2. You may have a low toner cartridge. When the toner is about to run out, you'll see faded print in the middle of your paper.
3. The seal on the toner is causing problems and needs removal via scissors. If the seal is causing the problem, you'll see a faded print along the margins.
