I have an Ineo+ Develop 353. Recently in the middle of a long print run, the yellow toner ran out:

Not a problem I thought - and went to get the spare that I had bought. A genuine Konica toner:

To my surprise, whilst this did slide in, it didn't fit in the printer as the tabs on the front are arranged differently.

I did notice that the part numbers were subtly different on top. Although googling these numbers brings up 0 results:

So, I went on Amazon, found an aftermarket toner that appeared correct:


Tabs in another configuration again on this one!

So, I now have 2 options and here is my question:

1. Use the toners that I have got. Slice off the tabs necessary to make them fit and swap the chip over from the old one. Is that all there is to it? Is this likely to work?
2. Order a 3rd replacement that does actually fit. Can anyone recommend a reliable supplier that gets it right please?

Here is the toner cavity in the 353:

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance,

Its because Develop and Konica Minolta have different lugs on them, just cut them off and put into machine.

Thanks - worked a treat, no need to swap chips etc.

Yep, just cut off the tabs.
