How long does HP toner last? HP toner cartridges can last up to two years in their sealed packaging. Even after two years you may still get some use out of the cartridge, so it may be worth trying even after the fact. Your printer will display a “low cartridge” message when a specific cartridge needs to be replaced.
While all OEM toners for your printer are virtually identical due to the high standard of quality control, generic toner quality varies widely, depending on the remanufacturing process and brand.
A typical ink cartridge will yield 250 to 300 pages depending on the color density of the prints. The yield of a typical toner cartridge in a laser printer is between 2,500 and 3,000 pages. Some larger laser printers can even have toners that will yield up to 30,000 pages!
Low-end to mid-range laser printers typically contain two consumable parts: the toner cartridge itself (which has a typical life of 2,000 pages) and the drum unit (a typical life of 40,000 pages).
Yes, you can.

The results: Original HP ink cartridges far surpassed ink refills in both print quality and reliability.

Monochrome laser printers use just the black cartridge and only print in black. Color laser printers use all four cartridges and can print in black and color.
HP LaserJet toner cartridges are manufactured in the following 5 countries: Japan, US, France, China and Vietnam.
Insert your new ink cartridges.

Gently slide the new cartridge into the ink slot. Insert your cartridge into the slot with the ink nozzles facing away from you. The color cartridge(s) goes on the left side. The black cartridge on the right side.

Here`s a quick calculation you can do to get a rough idea of how many pages your cartridge will print. The manufacturer`s capacity is based on 5% of the page being covered in ink or toner, but if you are printing large shaded areas or more than 4 paragraphs of text, we generally print at more like 10 – 15% coverage.
On your computer, in the Windows Notification Area (bottom-right corner of your Windows desktop), right-click the printer icon. In the printer menu, select the Properties or Preferences option. In the printer settings window, the ink or toner levels are displayed for the currently-installed cartridge(s).
The expiration date can usually be found on the side or back of the cartridge. The most visible effect you can experience from using expired toner is the poor quality of your printouts. Over time, the consistency of the fine toner powder within a cartridge can change, clumping and turning lumpy.
The standard cartridge is your run-of-the-mill cost savings cartridge. It typically gives you about 10,000–12,000 pages.
The expiration date can usually be found on the side or back of the cartridge. The most visible effect you can experience from using expired toner is the poor quality of your printouts.
The difference between leaving your printer on or turning it off is generally insignificant in terms of energy costs. For healthier print heads and more efficient ink consumption, however, it`s better to leave your printer on.

Expired Toner and Suggestions for Source of Toner
ANSWER : Hi Frank, I had a very similar question two weeks ago, but my “old beloved workhorse” is an HP Laserjet 4L. From the good old days! I too had made bad investments in “new but old truly HP” toner cartridges, hoping to coax more life from my printer. I ended up choosing to try a remanufactured cartridge from www.4inkjets.com. It was a gamble, but the website said they had a 100% satisfaction guarantee. And I can tell you they have lighting fast service. I’ve now printed 50 pages without a flaw. JOY! While the cartridges and technology are different, I suggest you try the same place. And good luck!

ANSWER : HP Color Laser Jet 1600 – Thanks for all the above information. Even though the 1600 is a different printer, I followed the above: “…go to “System Configuration”; then to “Print Quality”; I then get a choice of “Replace Supplies” and then “Overide Out”…” Selecting “Overide Out” got my 1600 back to printing, although I did have do perform the steps TWICE before it seemed to take affect.
