Metered Toner within non-metered 7830

Jump to solution
Product Name: WorkCentre 7830/7835/7845/7855
Operating System: Windows 10

I have a box of toners that was given to us by a company next door that has since closed down.

Within this box is a Black Toner, on the outside of the box it reads 006R01513 which is the usual black toner we use, however as the box is open (toner is unused) someone has written 006R01509 in marker on the box, which would be the metered version of the black toner. 

I'm sure I have read or been told that if you insert a metered toner into a non-metered 7830 it will convert the 7830 to only accept metered toners. Is this correct or can I simply insert the toner and if it is the metered version it will tell us that we cannot use it?

I do not want to dispose of the toner as it seems a waste but do not want to run the risk of converting the 7830!

Hope that makes sense. 

Thanks

The first toner after the one it comes with is the one that does the conversion. It will tell you it is the incorrect toner now.

Sell it on Craigslist or eBay

Hi Joe!

Thanks for your answer. 

As we've been using this printer for over 5 years within non-metered toners, would I be safe to try this black toner without any issues and if it does say it is incorrect then sell it?

Thanks

You can, but then you will be selling used toner and not new toner (Seal is broken,toner primed).

Thanks Joe!

I believe we still have over 40% left in the black toner currently in the machine, if I was to remove that temprarily and insert this toner into the machine and it is indeed the correct toner once it has primed would it be safe to remove and store until the remaining 40% of the current toner is used?

Thanks
