Samsung CLP 600n Toner
The Samsung CLP 600 is a very popular laser printer - but always when it comes time to renew your toner cartridges it can come as a bit of a shock ! Your great value Laser printer starts to look a little more expensive as you realise a full set of toner cartridges costs as much as the printer !!
This is an eternal truth amongst printer manufacturers - they will happily discount the prices of hardware because they make their profits on toner and toner cartridges. Over the years this has got more and more apparent which you can see with the cost of CLP 600 toner cartridges.
The CLP 600n Toner cartridge is not built to be thrown away after one use - yet this is what the manufacturers want you to do - eco-friendly - I don't think so. That toner low message means it has run out of ink - nothing else !
Do yourself and your wallet a favour and check out these guys - www.tonertopup.co.uk - you can quickly and simply fill up your existing cartridge and save yourself about 50% of the costs.
CLP 600n Toner Refills
So how difficult is it to replace the ink in a CLP600 cartridge. Armed with much indignation with the rip of prices and the purported eco claims of these companies I tried to find out - send us your used cartridges for renewing - pah !
So what's involved with refilling your CLP 600n Toner cartridge ? Despite the manufacturers best efforts it isn't actually that difficult. Many toner cartridges used to have a little stopper which you opened and then you could refill - job done. Unfortunately most manufacturers didn't like this and removed the stopper - so now you have to make your own.
These guys supply you a kit (one off purchase about a tenner) which you can use on all toner cartridges and a full set of instructions. I invested in a kit and a selection of ink for my various laser printers.
Brief summary of CLP 600n Toner replacement.
In your kit they supply you with everything you need to replace the ink in a CLP 300 toner cartridge. The most important thing to do is follow the instructions and pretty soon you'll have a refilled cartridge.
Basically as the nasty printer manufacturers have prevented you from the simple task of putting new ink into the cartridge by taking away the filler hole you have to create your own. Supplied with a Soldering iron with a specially shaped end , you let it heat up using the supplied egg timer :)
After this you push the soldering iron into the specified spot on the CLP 600 Toner cartridge and it creates a little hole. Then you shake the ink bottle supplied and gently pour in the new toner (surprisingly liquid like when shaken). After this you stopper up the new refiller hole on your Samsung CLP 600 Toner cartridge with a supplied plug.
Then - well that's it really - you just do all the other cartridges - it's very simple and if you are careful it's extremely easy to do. I had never used a soldering iron before and am not at my best with fiddly jobs but it really doesn't require any skill other than being careful and not spilling the ink everywhere !
The savings are certainly worthwhile and it really does make you feel better than chucking away all that manufacturered plastic just because it ran out of ink. As the company points all the components are designed for a much longer life than the volume of the toner.
The team at Tonertopup are exceptionally knowledgable about all toner cartridges and are helpful and honest. If you have any questions drop them an email before purchase - they really do know their stuff !
