Utax M 12 refill toner
Refill toner bottle with screw on funnel top.
Do not be concerned if the refill toner for your Utax M 12 has what appears to be an unrelated name. This is because of the sharing of the engine between different makes and models.
The Utax M 12 is refilled with the "Unplug and Pour" fill method
These are general instructions for this fill method. We supply specific instructions for the majority of printers with the toner. This is a straightforward and quick way to refill.
First of all prepare your worksurface. Working in an area of subdued light, cover your work surface with some newspaper. You may choose to wear latex gloves or use a dust mask. Take care not to touch or damage the imaging drum on the bottom of the Utax M 12 toner cartridge. Greasy marks or nicks in the surface will ruin the print quality.
Give the Utax M 12 refill toner bottle a good shake to get air into the powder so it flows easily, remove the top and seal and screw on the spout-shaped cap supplied with the Utax M 12 refill toner. Pour slowly into the toner chamber and be careful not to squeeze the bottle hard.
Leave an air space at the top. We may supply more or less toner in the bottle than your cartridge can contain. Do not overfill. Ensure that there is at least 5cm of space above the toner with the cartridge upright on its end.
Wipe any loose toner off the outside
round the hole with a duster and then close the hole with the filler cap
so that it does not leak. You may like to test the seal by holding the
cartridge above a sheet of white paper and gently shaking it. If some
toner leaks, stick brown vinyl packaging tape around the edge of the filler
Replace the cartridge into its lightproof plastic bag. Clean away any spilt toner and you are done!
Note that you have done nothing to disturb the cartridge so if it had packed up because it had run out of toner you should have it back in action without affecting any components.
We suggest you always have at least one spare refilled cartridge ready to be used in your machine as you do not want to have to refill a cartridge in the middle of a print run.
We also suggest that you always have one spare new OEM or remanufactured cartridge as well. Your refilled ones will go on beyond their first life and will save you money.......but they will not go on for ever! Sooner or later something will deteriorate inside and you will need to start another one.
You have probably got the idea now
that the manufacturers are doing their best to protect their large toner
cartridge profits from people like you who want to refill their own cartridges
and from the remanufacturers who offer a better priced replacement. In
recent years they have added electronic chips to some cartridges which
monitor how much toner is left. It would be fine if that was all they
did but some of them also close down the machine when it goes low.......
and refilling it won't reverse that. So for some machines you need to
screw or plug in a new chip before your refilled cartridge will work.
We either supply the chip with the toner where it is always needed or
else, where one chip lasts for several refills, we draw your attention
to it so you can buy it separately.
