How do I replace my laser printer toner?

Replacing Your Laser Printer Toner

Laser printers will run for, literally, thousands of prints before needed replacement or changing. However, they all need it at some point, so you should familiarize yourself with how to replace the printer toner for your specific printer.

First, dig up the old manual that came with your laser printer. It should contain specific instructions on how to properly remove your empty toner cartridge and on how to replace it with a new one. This is usually a simple procedure that involves a few latches and gentle movements. You never want to feel like you are exerting too much pressure when removing or inserting printer toner; otherwise you could be close to breaking your unit.

If you cannot locate your manual, hit the Internet and locate your manufacturer's website. There should be online support with instructions on how to change the printer toner. If not, there will definitely be contact information that you can use to call and ask them directly. Remember to recycle your empty printer toner cartridges when you replace them.
