Problem with HP 5SI/8000 laserjet toner cartridge: What is wrong ?

Toner cartridge is different from ink cartridge. Toner is used for laser printer. Ink is for inkjet.

Any toner cartridge is composed  of three main components:


1. Blade

2. Magnetic roller

3. Drum

A sheet of paper after being pick up  from the paper drawer, first,  it is inserted into the toner cartridge. The job of magnetic roller is  to select proper magnetic toners, and stamps them on the paper. Then the paper is burned by fuser. THis is the last phase before you get the printout.

There are usually  four problems caused by bad or wrong cartridge:

1. Toner is almost empty
2. wrong with drum
3. Wrong with Magnetic roller
4. Wrong with Blade.
