Here is an update on getting you printing costs even lower with laser printers.

After 5 months of use the Brother Colour printer – MFC 9340CDW’s panel notified me that a new black toner cartridge was required. I contacted Ink Owl to place a order for a 4 colour toner refill set plus an extra black bottle of toner together with their recommended tool for making the fill hole in the cartridge total cost $105 which is less than the cost of a single new cartridge at Staples :).

When I went to Youtube to get direction to refill the cartridge I found a tutorial which recommended resetting the Black page counter as it was suggested that in fact with most printers the low toner is signaled by a page count not a toner level.

Resetting the counter or flag gear enables you to use up almost all of you toner supplies before refilling with fresh toner.

Here is the video on how to do this for my Brothwer Laser Printer:
