    Toner compatibility

    Under the current conditions I would like to start a compatibility list of KM toners...

    TN-014 will work for TN-016, TN-017
    TN-322 will work in any B&W or color e series. you can either swap the caps or put the toner in the old bottle

    Looking for positive results for any production color, or 8/I series that you may have found. TIA E

    Re: Toner compatibility

    Katun Performance™ Universal Toner for use in:
    Konica Minolta Bizhub C250i/C300i/C360i/C450i/C550i/C650i-series


    Maybe also C750i is same toner.

    And you can reset toner in service mode. If you try other colors.

    I would avoid Katun. They are just trade company. better and cheaper to go direct.

    tn-712(754e) can be dumped into tn812(808) bottles. Take off end cap and there is a plug. just need a funnel.

    Re: Toner compatibility

    OK, we still have several REALLY OLD machines in the field that the customers just won't replace. We can't get TN211 or TN311 (for bizhub 200, 250, 222 & 282 or bizhub 350 & 362 respectively) toner any more from Konica Minolta.

    Does anyone know for sure if they changed the toner from the 2 series (222, 282, 362) to the 3 series (223, 283, 363, 423) which is TN217 or TN414? Or will 3 series work in 2 series?

    Results for BIZHUB

    Aftermarket toner is dirt in a bottle, I'd sooner become a bartender than use non oem supplies.
    We know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two.

    We're the same way which is exactly why we're trying to find out what OEM toners are the same over the years. We've got quite a few customers that have really old machines that still work fine but just need some toner. They don't run enough to justify buying a new machine so just want to keep the old one going. For us, it's not a bad thing because they are all on contract and the click price is quite high because that gets raised nearly every year since their lease was up and they bought it out.

    The vast majority of new printers, toner works on older ones. Old in new, no. Black in color, no. Colors in black, yes.

    Crazy secret.

    We've had 1250 with C8000 developer and toner in the field, no problem, for over a year
