Question about Lexmark Optra E312 Laser Printer
Smartest thing to do s to call Lexmark and purchase a new toner cartridge.
Lexmark does not allow for the use of refilled cartridges in any of their products. In fact, they will void printer warranties and not respond to any print quality question.
Laser printer cartridges have what is called a "Smart Chip." One of its purposes is to protect against the use of refilled toner cartridge.
Also, as an FYI, a toner cartridge that is refilled does not mean that any of the internal parts have been upgraded to "Equivalent to new" condition.
One final thought, it is illegal to hack around proprietary code. I believe it is an Intellectual Law issue.

Tips for a great answer:
The 100/100XL cartridges are not licensed to be refilled. You can, however, refill the 100A or 100XLA cartridges available on the Lexmark website at http://www.lexmark.com. You should be aware that a refilled cartridge will not be able to report its ink level, and you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high temperatures.
