Disadvantages depend on the specific method of filling/remanufacturing. If it is indeed just a refill, you may run into print quality and durability issues. A toner cartridge is more than just a toner cartridge. It also contains a photosensitive drum that holds the image before toner is applied. Finally, the cleaning blades and seals also wear out. If these parts are not replaced, these parts may fail prematurely.

If you refurbish a toner cartridge, print quality and reliability will depend on the quality of the replacement parts. With good parts, the cartridge should last its expected life.

When using refilled toner cartridges, there is a higher chance of toner leaking and staining the printer. However, many people have had success with refilled or remanufactured cartridges. I think, generally speaking, you’ll have a better success rate if you replace the most critical wear parts. Some refilled cartridges may not have quality controls to achieve the specified page count. It depends on how carefully the company measures the toner.

With color ink cartridges, it’s difficult to get good print quality from refilled cartridges. This is because the color page is a mix of 4 colors. Even small changes in toner density within the cartridge can affect color integrity.

If you did not refill your HP ink cartridges, you can recycle them through HP. New ink cartridges usually have a label inside the box, and old ink cartridges can be returned for free. HP recycles ink cartridges. Other companies that offer cartridge “recycling” services will likely try to purchase new cores for their refill/remanufacturing operations.
