Laser cartridges are an essential part of your printing needs. They’re what make your printer work and they’re the ink and paper that get printed on. If they run out, you’ll need to buy more. Fortunately, you’ve come to the right place because we’ll show you everything you need to know about these necessities, including how to replace them manually.
Steps to Replacing a Laser Cartridge
If you are in the market for a replacement laser cartridge, you will likely be replacing your current model with a new one. Here are some steps to take to replace your cartridge:
- Turn off the printer and remove all the paper from the input tray.
- Remove the cover on the top of the printer. There may be several Phillips screws holding it in place. Once it is removed, you should see two black cassette tapes inside. The upper cassette tape should hold the main laser unit, while the lower one should hold the toner cartridges.
- To replace the laser cartridge, first remove the old cassette tape by pulling it out from under the printer. Be sure to keep track of which side is up as you do this so that you can reinsert it correctly when you’re finished. Then, remove the old laser unit by unscrewing it from its mountings. Make sure to clean all of the dirt and dust off of it before replacing it.
- Thread the new cassette tape into place and screw in the screws until they are secure. Be sure to tighten them just enough so that they don’t come loose during use, but not so much that they are difficult to open.
Follow the steps above and make your replacing job easier! If you need more help in replacing cartridges, please do not hesitate to consult G&G!
