so were in school and according to the the service gude m10 runs the 4 toner bottles. but we are in a little bit of confusion as to how (in a perfect world) if the toner bottle black. was being used primarily. and it needed to be replenished. how does that motor just spin the black toner bottle. I am sure I am wording it bad. and yes I have the manual and all data in front of me. just curious if anyone else went to school and had the same question? again. drive of toner cartridges are all 4 ran off one motor.

any thoughts?

thanks brent

All 4 toners turn at the same time keeping all sub hoppers full unless a toner bottle is empty. I know that sounds weird but that is how it was explained.

that is what we thought as well. just seemed kind of wierd to know when one unit needed toner. that all would spin. I appreciate your thoughts

I know your sub hopper is what actually monitors your toner supply. If you replace bottles before it says it can throw off your toner gauges. I've not really opened up a sub hopper but maybe the detection plate when it's up slows down the flow of toner from the bottle? I'm sure it's something along those lines. I remember it somewhat in class and that's what the Theory looks like. The hopper controls pretty much all the toner replenishment operations.
