Question about Printers & Copiers
I purchased a Samsun ML-1450 laser printer about a year and a half ago and it's been great ... until earlier this year I went to use it and the print quality had declined, like it needed a head clean. I ran the Dr Printer software that came with the printer, but still it couldn't find/troubleshoot the problem. I've taken the toner cartridge in and out and it seems fairly heavy/full so I don't think it needs replacing but I'm not sure. The cartridges are expensive so I don't want to have to buy one if it's not necessary. Can anyone help ? thankyou
It is most likely to be the ITU - Imagev transfer unit, on average for samsungs you will get between 15k to 30k pages before one of these needs replacing. and for a samsung you will have a "Waste toner hopper" check to see if this is full. if so empty it and try again

All toner cartridges have a waste toner area where excess toner is stored, therefore appearing to be heavy. The 1450 will not ask for toner when depleted, and Samsung cartridges are cheaper than competing brands.
