To refill the cartridge proceed as follows:
Place the cartridge on the table in front of you and loosen the screws marked in picture 1. Afterwards remove the cover from the cartridge (picture 2) by using a plain screwdriver as lever. The filler opening is now visible you only need 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. Otherwise the physical and chemical characteristics of the old and the new toner powders could lead to a formation of clots.
After refilling the cartridge you can reinsert the recently removed closing plug.
Attention: The filler opening has to be absolutely leak-free. Through patting it over a white piece of paper, you can check the impermeability. There should not trickle any toner out of the opening.
Now put the cover back on and fix it with the screws.
After every refilling you need to change the chip. For that you only need to loosen the screws of the chip cover, exchange the chip and screw the cover back on.
By changing the chip your printer now 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.
After you have refilled the cartridge for 2 to 3 times it is possible that stripes or a grey veil appear on your printouts. In this case you need to change the drum unit of the cartridge. For that you need to take apart the cartridge. You can get the related instruction for remanufacturing from us.
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.
