Canon 137 Black Friday Deal

Black Friday is mostly known as the day for getting the best deals for items you have been yearning for all year.  This is true if (and I stress if !!) you are able to get the items you want. But this is not always guaranteed with the physical shopping experience.   Part of the unsavoury aspect of Black Friday shopping, one that is not as publicized, are the crowds you have to face and endless trudging from one shop to the next trying to find the best deals.

There are also a lot of other horror stories associated with the on ground black Friday shopping, like the shopper who waited in the queue for hours, waiting patiently to buy the technology product she had wanted for 6 months. Still on the queue, she could see the quantity of the item drastically reducing on the shelf as the shoppers ahead of her on the queue were allowed into the shop, but she still stayed on the queue and finally got to the front of the queue and could see that there were only two products left of the item she wanted to buy. And just as she was allowed in to finally get the item, she noticed that the prior shopper that was allowed in before he was picking up the last two items of the product that the store had.

Such disappointment is not uncommon on black Friday.  But it pales in significance to the shoppers who get involved in physical altercation with other shoppers in trying to get the sought-after deals.  Shoppers have been known to end in up jail on black Friday on assault charges.

What is a Drum Cartridge Used for?

Drum cartridges are what your printer uses to put ink to paper, creating photocopies of the document you just printed. If your printer does not have a drum cartridge, it will not print. Most newer printers come with drum cartridges, which contain a built-in photosensitive drum. In other words, when you buy your black or coloured toner cartridge, there is a built-in roller which spreads the toner on the paper. This whole drum unit creates the photocopies. Some printer models have two separate units in which the toner is separate from the roller. The toner cartridge is then placed in the printer separately and both need to be replaced as the quality of photocopying diminishes, with the drum unit lasting three or four times longer than the toner itself. However, at the end of a drum unit’s shelf live, the whole unit is usually replaced, replacing both drum and toner at the same time.

Facts about drum cartridges

  • It is an essential part of a printer
  • It revolves
  • It transfers the toner to the paper
  • Usually drum cartridges are more expensive, nevertheless, they also usually last longer than just plain toner cartridges
  • It is photosensitive
  • It has an electrical charge
  • It works with the laser to create an electrical charge during printing
  • It only takes the toner it needs, unlike toner cartridges which pull from both black and coloured toner
  • It is consumable and replaceable

Brother DR221CL Compatible Drum Combo BK/C/M/Y - Moustache®

How does it work?

Basically, very small laser beams transfer the image from the original copy to the photosensitive drum, then the drum rotates passing on its electrical charge to the toner allowing the image to transfer to the paper as the toner is dispensed. There is a heat lamp within the drum, which is activated once the drum rolls over the paper the toner bonds with the paper. The heat further bonds the toner to the paper. Voila! A photocopy has been created.

How much are drum cartridges?

It all depends on what your printer needs, as well as the brand and model of printer. Pricing is anywhere from $14.99 upwards to over $100; with the most expensive being the combined toner and drum units. Remember, your printer cannot function without a drum, drum cartridge or drum unit. Depending on the age of your printer, it should send you a notification of when toner or drum needs to be replaced.

How Long Does a Drum Last in a Printer?

How long a drum lasts in a printer largely depends on how many pages are printed, the condition of the drum unit, the yield the manufacturer puts on the product and the brand of the drum unit. A tale-tell sign that a drum cartridge needs to be replaced is when the quality of print diminishes. This usually happens after 10,000 to 50,000 pages have been printed off. This is just a broad estimate taken from the aforementioned.

Brother DR730 Compatible Drum - Moustache®

Ways to prolong the life of a drum

Most laser inkjet printers that have drum cartridges, allows you to remove the cartridge. When your printer gives you a notification that your toner is getting low or refuses to print because the toner is low, simply open the door to the toner area, remove the drum cartridge and gently shake it side to side or up and down. This will prolong the life of it. You should be able to do this several times. Be aware that toner may spit out over your hands or the surrounding area if you shake the cartridge too hard. Also, if you chose this method to make the toner last longer, the printouts will be diminished in quality. Therefore, this should method should not be used for important documents. It will make miserly shoppers sigh with relief though!

Signs that your drum needs to be replaced

  • Faded print
  • Streaked print
  • Blurry print
  • Black spots or smudges appear
  • Blank spaces
  • Blank printouts
  • The printer will no longer print pages, as some laser printers have a built-in page number and the printer keeps track of the number of pages that have been printed

Brother DR630 Compatible Drum - Moustache®

Things to remember

Drum cartridges are a main component in a printer. You cannot make copies without it. A drum unit can last three to four times longer than a toner cartridge, making it worth the cost. When taking cost-effectiveness into consideration, when your printer sends the first notification that your toner needs to be changed out, it does not mean the cartridge is empty. More often than not, there is still toner left to be used. You will have an opportunity to make the cartridge last longer, if you are willing to compromise on the quality of print; simply take the cartridge out and gently shake it.

Remember drum cartridges are available for anywhere from $14.99 to upwards of over $100. If you need assistance finding the correct cartridge for your printer, use the search button or call customer service.

What Does Re-Manufactured Ink Mean?

Remanufactured ink is a not a very popular concept unless you’re the above-average printer user. Often referred to as recycled printer cartridges, remanufactured cartridges are returned to the manufacturer to refill them with ink or replace any damaged/non-functional parts. After proper repairs have been made, the cartridges are then tested to see that everything is in order.

Things to Know

If you were ever planning to go eco-friendly, remanufactured cartridges are a way to start. Since they are basically recycled cartridges, they are easy on the environment and they cost way less than the purchase of a completely new product. On a general note, remanufactures cartridges are copyrighted and, therefore, can’t be replicated.

When you order remanufactured ink cartridges, there are a couple of things that you need to know. First, you should inquire about the guarantee offered. Respectable sellers will provide refunds in case of faulty products. Others will provide warranty periods which aren’t as long as the ones that come with the original cartridges, but they are still better than nothing.

Make sure that you only order remanufactured ink cartridges from trusted sellers. In addition to that, ask the retailers if the cartridges they sell meet the OEM standards.

While there’s nothing wrong with you using recycled cartridges, you should know that if you plan on printing photos, there is a noticeable difference between an original cartridge and a remanufactured one. According to some tests run by Wilhelm Imaging Research, ink that comes from a remanufactured cartridge will start fading away about 3.9 years after printing, while photos printed with an original cartridge can last up to 40 years. That’s almost 10 times longer.

What Does OEM Mean?

OEM is the abbreviation for Original Equipment Manufacturer. This means that the cartridge used is produced by the same company that manufactured your printer. OEM is considered to be a high standard that some brands use to mislead customers with their advertisements. If you ever hear about a remanufactured product being better than the OEM’s unit, you’re probably looking at a phony. A remanufactured product will never exceed the quality of the original one. You should always keep in mind that remanufactured ink cartridges are the cheaper, more affordable alternative to purchasing new cartridges.

Conclusion

Contrary to what some people say, remanufactured ink cartridges will not damage your printer in any way. This is probably the first myth that non-connoisseurs will tell you. Respectable retailers will only sell cartridges that have been tested and that meet the appropriate standards. Even so, you should know that there are chances of a remanufactured ink cartridge going bonkers, but that shouldn’t convince you never to use them again.

In the end, the important thing is what you’re planning to print with your new remanufactured ink cartridges. If you’re looking for high-quality printing, especially in colour, you may want to opt for new cartridges. If you generally use the printer for black and white documents, a remanufactured ink cartridge should do the trick and save you money in the process.

How to Reset Brother TN660 Toner

Owning a printer comes with a plethora of challenges and responsibilities, such as replacing ink or toner, repair costs, paper jams and other technical issues that may pop up as your printer ages. If you own a printer that takes a Brother TN660 refill, this article is for you, as we will explain how to reset Brother TN660 toner.

Steps to reset Brother TN660 toner

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Open printer door.
  3. Remove toner.
  4. With gear side up, locate three screws. With the right size screwdriver, unscrew and remove the two separate pieces.
  5. When the pieces are removed, there will be two or three white pieces called gears. Take them out. Then there will be a frosted-clear piece called a fill plug. Remove it from the toner cartridge as well. A word of caution, you may have to gently nudge it out of its place. Be very careful not to damage it. Gentleness is key in this step.
  6. You will have to pour out any remaining toner left in the cartridge. It is best if you blow it clean with a vacuum. It is essential to properly clean the cartridge and avoid mixing the old toner with the new toner. The better you do this cleanup job, the better the quality of print later.
  7. Take the new toner powder and shake it until it looks almost like a liquid. Open the cap. Cut off the tip of the funnel-like piece, insert it into the bottle opening. Next, you may refill with new toner. This may take a couple of minutes to do.
  8. Once you have the toner refilled, replace the fill plug. Then the gears. It is here that you must reset the gears. Just give the base of the first gear, it has the spring on top of it, a flick with the screwdriver to reset; spinning it in one full circle. OR You may be able to replace the black pieces over the gears and the screws. Then, finally, lift the white rectangular-like piece located in the large, black gear cover, and turn it one full circle. Your toner has now been refilled and reset.

Alternative ways to reset Brother TN660 Toner

  1. Open printer door where the toner is stored.
  2. Turn off the printer.
  3. Press the Go button, holding it down while the printer turns on.
  4. After three seconds, lift your finger off the Go button.
  5. On the printer screen “User Mode” should be displayed.
  6. Push the Go button nine times. The network button will flash as you do this.
  7. Push the Go button five times.
  8. The toner has been reset.
  9. Close the printer door.

The job is complete.
