Question about Brother HL3070CW Compact Digital Color with Wireless Networking Laser Printer
The full replaement color cartridges for this printer only print 1,400 pages @ 5% coverage. If you are speaking of the starter cartridges (the ones that came with the printer) they only have about half of that. If you print with this machine in full color mode, which is the default, it counts developer revolutions even if you only print b&w. If this is a purchased toner cartridge you are speaking of, you can reset the flag gear on the side of the cartridge in order to get more prints out of it, put the print quality may not be good. To extend the life of the color cartridges when you are only printing b&w, set the printer properties to print in "graysale" or "monochrome" under preferences. When you try to print a document, in the dialog box next to the printer name click preferences. Look on all of the tabs for one of the selections I mentioned and select it. This is an expensive cost per page printer, and you may not want to use it for all of your prints. It may be adviseable to get a cheap monochrome only printer for your b&w needs and only use this brother machine for your full color prints.
