The printer doesn't use ink, it uses toner, a black powder. The toner is then pushed onto the page using magnetic force and fused to the paper using a laser. Which replaces the traditional "ink injection" method.

The toner cartridge is a black unit that pulls out located behind the top access panel in the front. This unit contains a glass drum and behind it a well of toner powder. Usually you have to replace the entire unit.

There are toner cartridges with plastic caps which can be removed and then refilled with the powder. However, this powder is messy, difficult to manage, and eventually the drum will become scratched and worn since it is not really designed for prolonged use. So I recommend just replacing it.

While the toner cartridge will run more than ink. The frequency with which you have to replace it is significantly less. So while ink can run you as much as $0.25 a page when you factor in the wear and tear on the printer. Laser printers are more along the lines of $0.04 a page.

If you replace the toner, read the directions carefully and be sure to remove the plastic shipping strip from the side of the cartridge. This strip is used to hold the toner in the cartridge while it ships and will keep it from working properly.

How to refil Cannon LBP2900 cartridge


you do not have to take the whole printer to the shop to fill the ink cartrage if you have the manuel to the printer it should tell you how to remove the ink cartrage and replace it with a new one and also they may have a refill kit at one of your local computer stores or where they sell ink and they should be able to tell you how to get the ink cartrage out to replace it

I have brought a refill kit and i have refilled it help


on most printers there is a chip on the ink cartridge and it must be replaced when you refill the cartridge other wise the chip tells the computer the cartridge is empty whether its full or not.. Wallgreens will fill you ink cartridges at a very low price ($15 for color / $10 for black) and they have the chips to replace

I cannot get my printer to recognize my refilled ink cartridges


“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

Refilling HP 56 Cartridge


USING THIS TYPE OF REFILLS JUST ISN'T A GOOD IDEA. THE INK IS NOT THE SAME AS HP CARTRIDGE INK AND YOUR PRINTER WAS MADE FOR HP INK, NOT SOME GENERIC BRAND. THE FACT THAT IT DOESN'T WORK UNLESS YOU STICK IT IN WATER, ETC. SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING IS WRONG HERE. REFILLING IS MESSY, AND CAN CAUSE LEAKS IN YOUR PRINTER AND REALLY MESS THINGS UP. THE BEST BET IS TO USE THE PROPER INK CARTRIDGE WITH YOUR PRINTER. THATS THE TYPE OF INK IT WAS DESIGNED FOR.

Ihave a Canon Pixma MP150. Not long since had ink refill, working perfect yesterday and now saying ink cartridges cannot be recognised why is it saying this now. Please can someone help with this problem....


i just refilled my ink cartridges black and color ones, but my warning sign still reads that my cartridges are low. How do I tell it, it has new ink cartridges or refills? I printed a test page and an alignment page, thinking it would somehow get the picture, but not yet.

My Hp does not recognize my color cartridge?


Sometimes the color bleeds over. Did you wipe down the contacts and clean the heads? Also, most of the cartridges have low ink sensors in the. Even if you have them refilled, they will still show as low ink. The only solution is to buy the new ones.... $$$$$$.
