WHAT ARE TONERS?

Toners are a special type of cartridge made for laser printers. They are used for high-quality printouts. It generally occurs in the form of a powder and its main component is carbon. The ink is sprayed on to the paper with the help of electrostatically charged drums which are a component of the toner.

PROBLEMS RELATED TO A TONER:

Sometimes, while we are trying to print something on a paper, we may notice that there are certain issues related to the print quality. We may notice that the toner is either becoming flaky and coming off the paper or it may smear on the paper thus resulting in bad quality printouts. This signifies that there must be some issue with the toner.

While printing, if the toner does not smear or it does not come off the paper in the form of flakes, only then can we say that the toner is in good condition.

Such problems mainly occur if there is a problem with the Fuser. It may so happen that the fuser has become damaged which is preventing the printer from functioning properly. Also, it is possible that the Fuser is not getting the adequate temperature. As a result, the toner is not able to fuse properly thereby giving faulty outputs.
