Printers lock themselves to whatever is loaded first. If it is a new machine with the toners it came with, and you put metered toner in, it becomes a metered machine.

Same goes for Sold.

If you put the wrong one in after the machine is set, you will get a fault Invalid Toner and be unable to print until it is removed.

Joe,

 

you said 'Printers lock themselves to whatever is loaded first. If it is a new machine with the toners it came with, and you put metered toner in, it becomes a metered machine.'

 

that is NOT true!!! 

 

if you want to use metered toners/ink in xerox printer, you WILL need to buy  whatever model you wish to use as a metered machine, example--->  I bought a xerox 7800DN on APRIL 2017 and loaded it FIRST with metered toners, I did not use the toners (sold) that came with the machine,  and I got a error msg of:  INVALID TONER! ,, I should have bought the xerox 7800DNM  not the 7800DN,

so your response of 'Printers lock themselves to whatever is loaded first. If it is a new machine with the toners it came with, and you put metered toner in, it becomes a metered machine.' 

that is F A L S E ! ! ! 

 

 

 

HOWEVER, that may be ONLY true if that accurs at the xerox

factory when they manufacture them, when they load either SOLD or METERED toners, then I can see it accepting whatever type of

toner then, but by the time the printer reaches the consumer, ITS TOO LATE!
