toner cartridge being replaced

If you have a laser printer, replacing the toner cartridges will be a necessary albeit costly reality. Laser printers provide you with high-quality printing, but theres no getting around the fact that toner is a big expense.  At Premium Toners, we can provide you with affordable toner cartridge options, and you wont have to sacrifice quality.

Why Premium Toners?

As a laser printer owner, you have two options. You can purchase toner cartridges directly from the original manufacturers, such as Brother, Lexmark, HP or whatever brand your printer might be. The other option is to purchase compatible or generic versions of your toner cartridge.

If you purchase from the original manufacturer, compatibility and quality are pretty much guaranteed, but the price tag is much higher. With generic versions, you can save a ton of money, and as long as you purchase from a quality toner cartridge replacement company, you wont have to sacrifice quality or worry about compatibility.

At Premium Toners, you can purchase affordable generic toner cartridges for just about any make or model of printer, and each of our toner cartridges is backed with a 100% unconditional guarantee that your toner cartridge will meet or exceed original manufacturer performance specifications, and each toner cartridge will be 100% compatible with your specific laser printer model. Best of all, you can save 50% or more with Premium Toners replacement toner cartridges!

Toner Cartridge Troubleshooting Tips

While our toner cartridges provide you with quality equal to original manufacturer toner, we know that sometimes printer owners run into a spot of trouble, so we wanted to provide you with some handy tips to use when replacing a toner cartridge.

Installation Errors

Installing toner cartridges can be tricky, and its not uncommon to see an error such as printer cartridge not recognized. This often happens because you simply havent quite got that toner cartridge properly in place or perhaps you placed a color toner cartridge in the wrong space. Sometimes, just removing the cartridges, ensuring they are in the right slots, and putting them back into place will clear this error.

Chip-Related Issues

When you see an error message on your printer, it also is not uncommon that this is caused by a chip issue. There is a contact or chip at one end of your toner cartridge, and this serves as the communication link between the cartridge and your printer. In some cases, it may be that you simply dont have the toner cartridge in its proper place or there could be a bit of dust or debris on the chip, which prevents communication. 

We recommend removing the toner cartridge and gently dusting off the chip or contact area with a soft, lint-free cloth. Then carefully replace the cartridge into the laser printer and see if you continue to see the error message. If you do, it can be wise to rest the printer by turning it off for a few minutes and then turning it back on and reinstalling the toner cartridges. It also can be smart to wipe the contacts on the actual printer with a lint-free cloth just in case those contacts have a speck of dust or a bit of oil from your fingers.

Resetting The Printer Memory

In some cases, when you see a toner cartridge-related issue it can be a good idea to just reset the printer memory. To do this, take out the new toner cartridges and put the old ones back in. Then just let the printer rest for about 5-10 minutes. Then try replacing the old cartridges with the new ones again and see if you no longer get the error. Laser printers can be a bit persnickety, and sometimes a reinstall fixes the issue.

If this doesnt work, you will need to remove the new cartridges or cartridges and turn off the printer and then unplug it from the wall. This is because some printers will stay in sleep mode even when turned off and the memory wont clear.  After you unplug the printer, give it about 10 minutes of rest. Then plug it in and put the new cartridges back into the printer. Now you can turn the printer on and see if this has cleared the error message.

Updates & Compatibility

Laser printer manufacturers obviously want you to use their OEM printer toner cartridges. After all, it is a huge source of income for them. To push this point, manufacturers often provide automatic software updates for printers that will prevent the chips on generic replacement toner cartridges from remaining compatible.

Just to be clear, theres nothing wrong with purchasing generic or remanufactured ink cartridges or toner cartridges from a reputable company, such as Premium Toners. This does not bypass the warranty or harm the printer; original manufacturers simply want customers to purchase their OEM toner. If you want to opt for our affordable toner cartridges, you can bypass this compatibility issue by simply disabling automatic updates for your printer.
