    Re: Katun color toner

    It will void your warranty. Is it worth it? =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    Hi there!
    For the boxes of RICOH, CANON & KONICA-MINOLTA it´s the fastest way to get problems. Best advice is the Beatles-song "let it be".....

    The only 3rd party parts we use are waste toner containers.

    Re: Katun color toner

    We don't do any aftermarket color. Those machines were not good from the beginning & now you're adding another variable into the equation. Not worth it IMO.

    Hope that helps !

    Re: Katun color toner

    Sorry, I should have stated. Nothing but genuine through warranty period. My experience with 3 rd party toner has not been good. Usually I can tell if a customer is using generic because they call in asking for more waste tanks. The only reason I'm inquiring is because I'm being told this particular vendor's product works well. But because these units don't work very well with the genuine toner, I'm having a hard time convincing people the problem is third party toner. Thanks for the replies.

    We only use OEM toner. That Katun garbage, cost us a lot of money and gave me a lot of head aches over the years. We do use after market wtb though (not from Katun either).

    I agree with others, don't do it. Especially not for color machines, it quickly kills dev units. The only aftermarket toner i would recommend (for b/w machines out of warranty) is the Integral toner. It's pretty good German brand that never caused any problems to me.
