Can you refil laser printer toner cartridges

like you can an inkjet cartridge?

Yes, you can. Just Google for it.

Take the toner drum out and look for a plastic plug, just remove it and put toner in. You should do this with as little light as you can manage. Do not fill to the top. Only about two thirds

sometimes I miss something so plainly obvious that I think its time to shut me away in a dimmed room away from loud noises and bright lights where someone occasionally comes along to wipe the drool off my chin and feed me something pureed. (Hope Brumas or Bingalau dont see this thread!)

On a brighter note, my printer is dead easy, being a samsung ml 1510, it has a ready made bung for refilling. Doesnt need it at the moment and I have a spare cart as well, but nice to know. The printer I have been looking at is a HP laserjet 3600dn, nice piece of tackle but too expensive for my tastes (its not mine, belongs to someone I know who foolishly bought without checking the running costs)

Easy to do but, be careful and keep out of draughts while you do it - or change your name to Sooty.

What ever you do, if you get some toner on you, DO NOT TRY WASHING IT off with HOT Water it will make the toner Fast. Use Cold Water and soap

I have a Samsung ML-4500, which on occasions appears to be low on 'dust particles'. A little shake of the toner cartridge sometimes solves the problem ;o)
