When toner is low, faded or light areas appear on the printed page. You might be able to
temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner, which means that you might be
able to finish the current print job before replacing the print cartridge.
1. Open the print cartridge door, and remove the print cartridge from the printer.
To prevent damage, do not expose the print cartridge to light. Cover it with a sheet of paper.
2. To redistribute the toner, gently rock the print cartridge from front to back.
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.
3. Reinsert the print cartridge into the printer, and close the print cartridge door.
If the print is still light, install a new print cartridge. See
