Remove and replace the toner cartridge

Replace the toner cartridge with a new, genuine HP toner cartridge when toner levels become too low, and the cartridge no longer yields acceptable print quality.

Note:

When a toner cartridge approaches the end of its useful life, redistributing the toner in the cartridge might improve print quality and enable you to continue printing. To redistribute the toner in the cartridge, remove the toner cartridge from the printer, gently rock the cartridge back and forth along its horizontal axis, and then replace it in the printer.

  1. Make sure the printer is off.

  2. Open the cartridge access door, and then remove the used toner cartridge from the printer.

  3. Remove the new cartridge from its packaging.

    CAUTION:

    To prevent damage to the cartridge, hold the cartridge at each end. Do not touch the protective cover or roller surface.

  4. Place the used cartridge in the bag and box for recycling. To recycle the used cartridge, go to www.hp.com/go/recycle.

    CAUTION:

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

  5. Grasp both sides of the cartridge and gently rock the cartridge to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.
