One of the easiest things you can do to keep your printer printing at an optimal level is to change the toner cartridge. Even if the printer is an all-in-one, like the Samsung SCX-4500W, the process can be completed with a few easy steps. And fortunately, you don't even have to guess when the time to change the cartridge comes. This model actually tells you it's time by displaying messages on its screen and by blinking LED lights on the control panel.
To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to light for more than a few minutes. Cover it with a piece of paper, if necessary. Do not touch the green area of the toner cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area. Do not use sharp objects such as a knife or scissors to open the toner cartridge package. They might scratch the drum of the cartridge. If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric. When opening a scan unit, hold the document feeder and scan unit together.
How to Change a Samsung Toner
Turn the printer's power off. The power button is located on the control panel on the top of the printer, on the right side.
Open the printer's top cover by pressing the top cover lever, which is located on the bottom side of the top cover.
Lift the cover all of the way open.
Locate the toner cartridge. It will be right in the center of the printer and has a handle on the top of it. Grab the handle and pull the cartridge out.
Hold the replacement cartridge at its side and gently rock it back and forth. This will help to distribute the toner equally throughout the cartridge.
Remove the paper cover from the top of the cartridge.
Insert the replacement cartridge into the printer and close the printer's top cover.
