    Re: 4 Series K Toner Shortage info?? (TN321)

    I have used TN 322 in the C364e, C558, and C360i with no ill effects. I have been using TN014 in TN-015, 016, and 017. Other than the mess this also works and TN 014 is still available. With the office machines 8 series and above, you can go into service mode and set the "gas gauge" back to 100% without needing a new chip. E

    How many copies are made with exchanged toners?

    I know someone else posted this, and I don't use anything other than OEM, but the people at NA Trading have been very cool to work with and they tell me that their own brand of toner has been EXTENSIVELY tested, both in house and at their partner dealers.

    I cannot personally recommend this, but I have used the Katun toners before and I'll never do that again, so this might be a good option.

    Just thought I'd throw this in here with regards to NA Trading...

    NA Trading had told us that same line with regards to their feed tires (A00J563600). "The tires had been EXTENSIVELY tested, both in house and at their partner dealers." Out of the package they looked good, but felt kind of slick. Some of the tires didn't work right out of the bag, refused to grab the paper. The ones that did work we got about 8K to 9K pages on the tires before it was non-stop jamming. By that point, the feed tire was having problems grabbing, and the DFP (seperation) tire had been worn down to almost nothing, was cupped severely, and had turned into a scaly white looking piece of plastic. There was a trail of plastic "dust" throughout the entire paper path in the copier, dead center lined up with the tires. We ended up with all sorts of jamming issues because this plastic "dust" would cover the optical sensors completely, not to mention the issues with the tires themselves not grabbing and wearing funny.

    We've also tried their refurbished drums for the 4- and 8-series. Both are hit and miss. The 4- seem to be better than the 8-, probably because of the cheap charge rollers they use in the 8-. Cleaning blades tend to be an issue in both, with about 20% of them ending up leaving black streaks very early into their usable life, or causing a squealing noise due to vibration. Another issue with the cleaning blades is that you MUST keep the drums warm. If you try to use a cold one (winter months), you're guaranteed to have dirty black pages, and a 60% chance that the cleaning blade will flip. Generally if you let the drum warm up, even after you get the black streaky mess, the cleaning blade will regain enough flexibility to start cleaning the drum properly. Then you are black to the possibility of the previous problems I spoke of.

    This toner plant exploding has also put Lexmark branded konicas toners unobtainable.
    I have a customer with 25 XC9235's and we can't get toner for them.
