Replacing Toner Cartridge Chip

What Happens When the Toner Cartridge Chip is Misread?

Cartridges could still have enough toner in them for printing if we refill them, and if the chip isn’t reset or replaced, warning signs continue to appear. The printer may refuse to print a page. This is because the computer is informed by the toner chip, and does not recognize that there is fresh toner in the cartridge. We can remedy this problem by replacing the used chip as this resets the counter.

Refilling and Reuse of the Toner Cartridge

The cost of replacing original printer cartridges is high and there’s a cost saving for us when a cartridge is refilled. The negative impact on our environment is also reduced when a toner cartridge is reused. Cartridges are made up of delicate parts including base metals and plastics. These represent costs to our environment in manufacturing and when a cartridge is thrown away instead of being recycled.

Reducing the Negative Impact on our Environment

Replacing the chip is of great advantage to us because it allows the refilling and reuse of printer cartridges without annoying printer messages popping up on the desktop. A second advantage is the overall reduction of human impact on our environment. The simple process of refilling cartridges and replacing the toner chip to allow reuse significantly reduces hazardous landfills.

Ensuring Quality in Your Toner Replacement

Toner cartridge chips are affordable and chips that are a perfect match for many types of printer can be purchased online. It is vital to make sure you choose a toner chip manufacturer with a good reputation and also that you select a provider that is known for quality refilling processes. Certain chip manufacturers display excellence in their chip development processes, taking care to reach consistently high standards.

How to Replace a Toner Cartridge Chip

Once you’ve refilled and cleaned the cartridge, locate the chip slot on the back or bottom of the cartridge. Some chip covers have screws and those may need to be removed first. Remove the cover and replace the old toner chip with the new one, being careful to align the circuitry correctly.

All about Routers and Ports

Routers are another important part of technology that has developed well. They are in every electronic store you can imagine. What an advantage it is that we can have a device that organizes and protects our internet use. When your computer browsing different websites the router will send traffic to and from where it’s needed. At the same time using encryption to protect your information from hackers.

There are many scary moments of where someone personal information was stolen. But the bringing of WEP and other protection methods of internet use has been a great way and advantage to the PC user. Being on a personal home PC should be a safe experience.

There are some who have enough experience and know how and when to loom for computer security attacks. Having a computer ramped with hackers and spyware can be very uncomfortable. That’s why routers, antivirus software, and other security measures are good.

One great security we have that comes with routers is the ability to have port selection. Every router has the ability to have certain ports that can be open and closed. Make the ports that you use for friend gaming closed and only open to your friends.

Playing games or having a chat with friends only to have someone hack in would be sad. What a bummer if one didn’t know as well. Playing games and having other pc activities done through a router and ports can be a very pleasant experience. As it cuts down on lagging from so many wanting to connect and interact with others online.

Clean Printer Rollers

Internal Pickup Rollers – For Laser Printers Only

Step 1

Turn off your printer and unplug all the cables. Uncover the printer’s front door and gently pull the printer’s toner cartridge towards yourself to detach it from the printer.

Step 2

Try to locate the printer’s internal pickup rollers. Rollers are either black or gray in color and are made up of rubber. Slowly lift the rollers in the upward direction towards the front of the printer. Now, pull out the rollers and place it on a smooth and clean surface like workbench or desk.

Step 3

Pour 1 tablespoon of water or isopropyl alcohol onto a lint-free cloth and begin the cleansing task. Fold the clean-up cloth in half and repeat the process until the rollers are free from dust and debris.

Step 4

Clean the rollers with a dry clean-up cloth to eliminate remaining dust or debris particles. Let the rollers dry completely before placing the pickup rollers back into their place. Now, properly reinstall the toner cartridge and close the printer’s front door.

Great PC for Gaming

System Case

You can get a desktop PCs in various sizes and shapes. Computers with a bigger case allow you to get several larger graphics, more hard drives, and sophisticated cooling arrangements. The most important part is the design of the motherboard, which gives numerous features. The limitation of such large cases is the fact that they occupy a lot of space and can dominate rooms of small sizes.

The number of computers having smaller Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards is increasing gradually. Their size is quite manageable. However, these are not adequate for users who like to double these up for graphic cards, or fit a larger quantity of internal parts, though they remain almost as powerful as their bigger cousins.

Graphic Cards

Of the internal components contained in computer’s case, the most significant for games is the graphic card. The biggest graphic cards are unlikely to get fitted into all cases. But generally, you should choose the most powerful card that your budget allows, as this component plays the most significant role in the way games perform.

There continues to be a strong competition with regard to price, the selection of graphic cards, plus advanced architectures among nVidia and AMD. The scales so far continue to swing among these two.

In case of gaming PCs, don’t ever be sparing when it comes to graphic cards. Though these components are the costliest, they are the most significant for gaming. Do not hesitate to go for a somewhat slower processor at the cost of a superior graphic card. On the whole, you should think in terms of matching their performance to steer clear of jams, and derive the most out of the two.

The Processor

Though the gaming experience is dependent on the graphic processor, your PC essentially requires its central processor. Even though most of what is available in the market comprises of the same basics, there is difference in their speed of using the memory, the selection of SSD and overclocking.

Use Mac for Business

That said there are a lot of times when Apple Mac computers are better for business. Any time you have graphic design involved for example. Mac computers dominate this industry with their large high resolution screens and amazing graphic software. Almost every web design, printing or graphic design company I’ve been in use Mac computers exclusively.

A Mac computer is also a good choice for a small one or two person office simply because they are so versatile out of the box. If you’re a small business owner without many staff the answer to “Should I use a Mac for my business?” might be a solid yes. You’ll be wearing many hats in this case including designing your own logos and marketing materials or maybe even creating your own website all of which Mac computers are very good at.

With the release of Microsoft Office for Mac, you can still use Outlook, Word, Excel etc which makes it easier for those making the switch. There is certainly a learning curve involved, however, as the operating systems are quite different but the basic concepts like files, folders, copy, cut, paste, and the like are the same.

Being an IT professional I get into a lot of different offices running a lot of different businesses. I’d say 90% of the time they are all Windows based. Microsoft still dominates the business world by far. I will say though, I’ve seen an increase in the adoption of Mac and we are getting more and more orders for Macs these days through our sales department.
