How to replace the Toner Cartridge
The printer, when the standard capacity toner cartridge is used, can print
approximately 3,000 pages at 5% coverage on A4/Letter size paper with one toner
cartridge.  When the High capacity toner cartridge is used, approximately 6,000
pages can be printed under the same conditions.  When the toner cartridge is
running low, the 
Alarm
 and 
Data
 (Toner) LEDs blink once every 5 seconds to
indicate toner low.
 Note
• 
Actual page count will vary depending on your average document type. (i.e.:
standard letter, detailed graphics, etc.)
• 
It is recommended that you always keep a new toner cartridge ready for use in
case you get a toner low warning.
• 
Discard the used toner cartridge according to your local regulations. If you are
not sure of them, consult your local dealer.  Be sure to seal the toner cartridge
tightly so that toner powder does not spill out of the cartridge.  Dispose of the
used toner cartridge in accordance with local plastic waste regulations.
• 
It is recommended that you clean the printer when you replace the toner
cartridge.
 See “How to clean the printer” in this chapter
, you can also view the
CD video.
• 
There are many factors that determine the actual toner life, such as temperature,
humidity, type of paper that you use, the number of pages per print job, etc.
Under ideal conditions, the average toner life is estimated at approximately
3,000 pages (standard) / 6,000 pages (High capacity toner cartridge).  The actual
number of pages that your toner will print may be significantly less than this
estimate.  Because we have no control over the many factors that determine the
actual toner life, we cannot guarantee a minimum number of pages that will be
printed by your toner.
