Refill instructions for the cartridge Kyocera M2640, M2540, M2040, M2540DN, M2640IDW, M2540DNw, M2040DN, M2540DNe, compatible with TK-1170,1T02S50NL0

To fill, proceed as follows:

Figure 1

Insert the toner cartridge (as on Figure 1) to himself. Melt an approx. 8-10 mm hole in the toner cartridge at the point marked below with the aid of a soldering iron. Fill the refill toner into this hole with the help of a funnel (which you will receive with your order). Seal the hole with a piece of tissue tape. The toner cartridge is only full.

Tip: Please make sure to always wear a mask and gloves when filling the cartridge.

Also pour the powder into the toner filling opening and wear the place with adhesive tape. (After opening, we recommend that you empty the residual toner from the cartridge) Tip: Empty the waste toner in a plastic bag. Attention should not Empty the cartridge with your vacuum cleaner.

Then the chip of the toner cartridge has to be changed. This is located on the front of the cartridge (Picture below; Figure 5). To do this, carefully pry off the old chip with a small screwdriver. The new reset chip is attached to the toner cartridge in the same position as the old one. Use a small piece of double-sided tape to fix it.

By changing the chip, the printer will now recognize your toner cartridge as full. Please always refill toner powder so that your toner cartridge has the full capacity of the page. If you do not do this, the printer may still recognize the cartridge as empty due to a lack of toner powder. In this case the toner chip loses its function. The toner chip can be used once.

Refill toner and toner powder can be harmful to health if improperly handled. We expressly recommend the use of respiratory protection equipment or suction chambers when filling toner cartridges. In addition, toner powder and refill toner can be extremely flammable with an appropriate oxygen mixture. Also, be careful not to touch the photoconductor drum or expose it to direct sunlight. This can lead to incorrect printouts.
Eurotone assumes no responsibility for the success or failure of the procedure described.
