How To Install A Chip To A New Compabible Toner Cartridge?

If you’ve purchased the compatible toner cartridge with no chip, you’ll need to transfer the chip from your original (OEM) cartridge to this compatible one. The chip is vital for your printer to communicate with the toner cartridge and provide low-ink notifications. Keep in mind that, since it’s a used chip, your printer display may show “empty” or “0” toner supply, even though the cartridge will still print its full page yield without affecting print quality. The chip can be reused multiple times.

For a step-by-step guide on chip transfer, please refer to our installation instructions or watch the video tutorial below.

  2. Ensure the chip aligns with the middle line.
