Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Refill problems pages are stained

I have just refilled the black toner of the HP LJ 5550 with a uni kit refill but now all of the pages come out stained uniformly (all the white becomes light grey).

Is this a problem with the refill or is the cartidge broken? I have tried cleaning everything but no difference.

Original refills are best rather than using refill kits, but are expensive and produces clean results... Well, that's the way it is, I too got refills and I expected it to have unwanted results.

Use it until emptied and buy original refills to get best results.
Let this be a lesson us... After all, it's a part of learning via our mistakes.

Hp laserjet 1100 toner catridge refill?


Hi follow these steps..

1.Purchase a refill kit for your model of printer. It is important to purchase a refill kit designed for your specific model, since generic refill kits do not work well with HP printers. There are a number of places to buy these kits, but you must make sure you get the right kit for your printer model

2.Take the toner out of the printer and clean it carefully. Over time toner cartridges will accumulate paper dust, dried toner and other debris, and all of this must be cleaned away before the cartridge is refilled.

3.Flip the cover out of the way to expose the developer roller, then use a soft clean cloth to clean the roller. It is important to clean this roller before refilling the cartridge.

4.Make a small hole in the toner cartridge, using the instructions provided in the refill kit. It is important to follow the refill kit instructions carefully, since the toner refill process will vary from model to model.

5.Place the replacement toner in the hopper, then carefully pour it into the HP cartridge. Be careful not to spill any of the toner, and if you do spill the toner be sure to clean it up promptly. Reseal the hole you made after the cartridge has been refilled.

6.Sit the refilled HP cartridge on a clean flat surface and let it remain there for 20-30 minutes. Pick up the cartridge and make sure no toner has leaked out. If you do see any leaks you will need to reseal the hole you made again.

7.Pick up the cartridge and make sure no toner has leaked out. If you do see any leaks you will need to reseal the hole you made again.

Good Luck & cheers:-)

How to refill toner or replace drum?


Most of these cartridges come as a refurbished cartridge. They cost about $109 US. Toner would be as much or more (but two fills) if you can find a supplier. A cartridge is about 30,000 pages so it is an EXCELLENT buy. I use laser for this very reason. Bought any 1000 page inkjet refills lately at $75?

Brother Toner Refills


Yeah you can refill your cartridge. It is really easy and consists of removing the plug on the side of the cartridge, dumping out any old toner and dumping in the new toner. Its very easy. I have purchased refill kits from both of these sites in the past and its worked great:

www.tonerrefillstore.com

www.lasertekservices.com

They also have great customer service. I hope this helps!

Refill Toner Cartridge for Laser Printer


Nobody has a clue how to refill a laser cartridge with ink. :)))

OK< just kidding, here it is:

First of all, laser-cartridges have toner (a fine black powder) and not ink.
Second: There are 2 methods to refill a laser cartridge: dismounting it to get to the toner chamber (involves a lot of tehnical skill) or the melt-and-pour method (see here http://www.urefilltoner.co.uk/), but you need the melting device.

But because from your question i see you dont know a thing about refilling, better go to a refill center.

Toner refill kits for hp 2840


I have the same problem. Happended under warentee and the HP techs have replaced about everything but the printer's shell. They fix one thing and break another, but refuse to replace the printer and we are going on 5-6 service calls.

It all started when I replaced the magenta toner. BTW the HP techs constantly lie about what they did and when they will be back.
