Moe is right, you might be able to get another 20g of toner in
addition to the 140g HP, Canon(AX)or responsible cartridge
remanufacturers put into these types but yo then might risk
overloading the waste hopper, and producing sprinkles of toner on the
page. It's the least toner Canon - who designed it - and HP have ever
put into a laser printer or fax cartridge.
Above all with these, or the HP 5L or 6L cartridges, if you get a
paper jam at the output, don't try to pick out the paper with a sharp
object. You'll risk a $100+ fuser fixing assembly replacement, as they
are just mylar tubes, not the teflon coated aluminum ones older
printers had. Release the tension with the little lever inside at
lower left, and carefully take the paper out backwards
As for telemarketing toner pirates, they are a curse to office workers
and our industry. Details on what our Canadian association, CIPRA, has
done to isolate them are at http://www.image-control.com
About 20 other U.S. regional, and international associations are
working towards thegetting the level of acceptance that auto parts
remanufacturers have attained by by setting and maintaining solid
quality and marketing standards.
