Please make sure you have removed the packing strip from the toner cartridge. This is usually a pull tab that you wiggle to break and then pull out. (I am not 100% sure this cartridge has one, but 99% of cartridges do)

If you have done this, or the cartridge does not have one, then remove the cartridge, tilt it gently from side to side, and end to end, then front to back. Re-insert and check again. This model also gives toner out error LED for when a cartridge is not seated in properly

If the light is still on, you may actually have a faulty cartridge. This can happen. See if you can borrow a cartridge from a working machine. In the worst case, you may have to purchase another cartridge to "prove" this one is faulty.

How to refill Canon laser LBP3108b printer cartrige?


Hello,

Refilling of the toner cartridge is not advisable because the power is very fine and you don not want to breath in this toner powder. This is dangerous to our health. You can purchase a new toner cartridge or a recharged the toner cartridge these are cheaper than a new cartridge. You can be print some pages in a empty toner cartridge by shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position and inserting back into the printer. Hope this simple tips will help you.

Good day and Best Regards.

How do i change the print cartridge?


Replacing the print cartridge
  1. Open the print cartridge door, and remove the old print cartridge. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, minimize its exposure to direct light by covering it with a sheet of paper. Figure 1: Removing the print cartridge c01174123.jpg
  2. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, hold the print cartridge at each end.
  3. Pull the tab until all the tape is removed from the cartridge. Put the tab in the print cartridge box to return for recycling. Figure 2: Removing the sealing tape c01211568.jpg
  4. Gently rock the toner cartridge from front to back to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge. Figure 3: Shaking the print cartridge c01211569.jpg
  5. Insert the print cartridge in the device and close the print cartridge door. Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridge c01174125.jpg CAUTION: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash the clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into the fabric.

NOTE: When toner is low, faded or light areas appear on the printed page. You might be able to temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner. To redistribute the toner, remove the cartridge from the device and gently rock it from front to back.
