Getting the most out of your Laser Printer Cartridge

You can squeeze a bit more life out of most any laser printer cartridge by removing the cartridge and rocking it from front to back. Do this by holding the cartridge at each side and gently rocking or rotating it front to back. This helps to settle the remaining ink inside the cartridge into the area that it dispenses from. You can try this when the low toner warning is on, but I try to do this on occasion when clearing a jam or performing printer maintenance. Most cartridges instruct you to do this same thing upon installing a new cartridge.
