Please read these instructions carefully before you start refilling. When refilling toner cartridges we generally recommend our customers to wear latex gloves and a fine particle mask.
The filler opening is located below the side cover. Loosen the screws marked in picture 1 with a screwdriver. Afterwards you need to undo the clasp. Use a small plain screwdriver to do that (picture 2). Now you can remove the side cover and the closing plug appears (picture 3). Take a putty knife and use it as lever to remove the closing plug.Before refilling the toner cartridge, you should pour out the rest of the toner powder or exhaust it with an aspirator for toner powders.
Take the toner bottle and screw the funnel on. It makes refilling easier. Now fill in the toner powder into the cartridge (picture 4). Now you can seal the filler opening with the recently removed closing plug.
After every refilling you need to change the chip of the cartridge.
As the cartridge is equipped with a chip that monitors the filling level you need to change that chip after refilling the cartridge. Carefully cut off the in picture 5 marked welding spot with a cutter knife (picture 6). Afterwards you can remove the old chip and change it into a new one (picture 7). Insert the chip in a way that it is thoroughly fixed beneath the residual welding spot.
By changing the chip your printer recognises the cartridge as refilled. Please refill toner powder every time so that the cartridge gets the entire page capacity. If you do it without refilling toner the printer recognises the cartridge as empty and the chip gets blocked. By this the chip gets useless. A chip can be used exactly one time.
Your toner cartridge is now refilled and you can reinsert it into your printer.
Refill toner and toner powder may cause serious health problems if not handled carefully. We recommend always using breathing protection or suction chambers while filling toner cartridges. Furthermore, toner powder and refill toner can be highly flammable with an appropriate oxygen mixture. Please note as well, that you should touch the photoconductor drum in no case or expose it to direct sunlight. This could lead to faulty print-outs. Octopus Office will not take any responsibility for success or failure of the described procedure.
