Question about Canon LASER SHOT LBP-2900 Printer
Please tell how to refill a it
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.
