Redistributing toner

Redistributing toner

When toner is low, faded or light areas appear on the printed page. You
might be able to temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the
toner, which means that you might be able to finish the current print job
before replacing the toner cartridge.

Note

You will feel some resistance when you open the toner door. Opening the
toner door conveniently lifts the toner cartridge for removal.

1

Open the toner door, and remove the toner cartridge from the printer.

CAUTION

To prevent damage, do not expose the toner cartridge to light. Cover it
with a sheet of media.

2

To redistribute the toner, gently shake the toner cartridge from
side to side.

CAUTION

If toner gets on your clothing, wipe the toner off with a dry cloth and wash
the clothing in cold water.

Hot water will permanently set the toner into

the fabric.

3

Reinsert the toner cartridge into the printer, and close the toner door.

If the print is still light, install a new toner cartridge. See

Changing the

toner cartridge

for instructions.
