How do I change the toner cartridge on a photocopier?

Changing the large toner cartridges on a photocopier may seem like a daunting prospect, but it is actually a straightforward, quick and clean job. The display unit on the photocopier will warn you when toner is getting low so that a new one can be purchased. When it does finally run out you simply open the compartment that houses the toner, which is usually very easy to access, release the old toner and insert the new cartridge.

You may have to press a release button to activate this. Ensure that you remove the protective tab on the new toner and follow any installation instructions, such as printing a test page to ensure the new toner is correctly installed. If in doubt, consult your user manual or speak to your photocopier servicing provider .
