HP LaserJet Pro M304, M305, M404, M405 - Replace the toner cartridge

Replace the toner cartridge if you receive a message on the printer, or if you are have print quality problems.

Toner cartridge information

Review details about ordering replacement toner cartridges.
The printer indicates when the toner-cartridge level is low and very low. The actual toner cartridge life remaining can vary. Consider having a replacement cartridge available to install when print quality is no longer acceptable.
Continue printing with the current cartridge until redistributing the toner no longer yields acceptable print quality. To redistribute the toner, remove the toner cartridge from the printer and gently rock the cartridge back and forth about its horizontal axis. For graphical representation, see the cartridge replacement instructions. Reinsert the toner cartridge into the printer and close the cover.
To purchase cartridges or check cartridge compatibility for the printer, go to HP SureSupply at www.hp.com/go/suresupply. Scroll to the bottom of the page and verify that the country/region is correct.
  caution:
Cartridges are for distribution and use within their designated region only; they will not work outside of their designated region.
