Brother MFC-9970CDW Printer Review and Reset Instruction




The Brother MFC-9970CDW printer is a laser unit designed to print, copy, scan, and fax. The printer is designed to tackle the full need of a small office in one reliable and affordable machine. Paper handling includes both a 250-sheet main input tray and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray. An optional 500-sheet input tray costs $250 from Brother. The MFC-9970CDW prints and scans in duplex (two-sided), the latter via the 35-sheet automatic document feeder. The Brother MFC-9970CDW printer can print up to 30 pages per minute with maximum resolution of 600X600 dpi in black and 2400X600 dpi in color.

There are color toners and drum cartridge for the Brother MFC-9970CDW printer. The black toner can print up to 2,500 pages at 5% coverage. The color toners can print up to 1,500 pages at 5% coverage each. The drum can last up to 25,000 pages at 5% coverage.

Brother's MFC-9970CDW is a very popular model among small businesses in its price range because it hits the important points--speed, features, and cost per page. Although it could stand to improve in photo quality and especially scan quality, it offers enough functionality for most small offices’ internal uses that do not require extremely high quality color scanning or color printing.

If you happen to own one at home or use one at the office, you may have encounter one of the most common problems involving this printer, and that is resetting its toner counter  after installing it new TN-315 toner cartridges for the printer to recognized them.

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle: The Environmental Benefits of Remanufactured Toners



As the summer months passes by and about to come to an end, many of us have enjoyed the summer time and the wonderful weather outdoors. Whether we took nice strolls down the beach, went on family camping trips in the mountains, or went fishing with our friends on a lake, we were reminded how beautiful our nature is. More importantly, how important it is for us to conserve our environment.

In terms of environmental stewardship, there is a hierarchy of preferred practices: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. From first to last in this list, the greatest benefit to our limited resources and environment can be found.  Of course, this means the best way to become an environmental guru is to reduce usage. In terms of toner cartridges, the ultimate environmentally friendly solution is to cut down on the number of pages printed. This saves the most money, the most resources, and has zero land fill waste impact. To reduce usage is the best option, but there are times when printing is simply needed. In fact, statistics suggest that the amount of pages printed each year continues to increase, which comes as a major surprise in this increasingly digital world.

Since we are not reducing usage as expected, it is becoming paramount that we explore the latter two options in the hierarchy, to reuse and recycle when it comes to printing. By recycling the parts of the original cartridge and reuse the treated parts in remanufacturing, we are contributing to environmental stewardship while enjoy the cost savings.

Here are four major benefits in using a properly remanufactured toner cartridge:

(1) Resource Conservation:  A typical used toner cartridge consists of 40% plastic and 40% metal with the remaining 20% made up of foam, rubber, and left over toner.  Over 90% of these materials are treated and then reused in a remanufactured cartridge.

(2) Energy Conservation: The energy equivalent of 3 quarts of oil is consumed in the manufacturing of a new cartridge. While there is energy consumed in the transportation of empty cartridges, it is far less than what is used to make a new cartridge.

(3) Monetary Cost Savings: Remanufactured cartridges are less costly than newly manufactured cartridges, offering a savings to consumers of up to 75% less than the cost of new. Printer manufacturers are known to charge very high prices for new cartridges.

 (4) Reduce Landfill Needs: Whenever a cartridge is remanufactured or recycled (after the cartridge is beyond useful life for remanufacturing), there is a reduction in the demand for land fill space. The plastic in a toner cartridge takes at least 1,000 years to decompose in the landfill.

Most of us already use recycle paper to conserve our trees. However, over 75% of the printers still use newly manufactured toner cartridges to print instead of recycling and reusing the cartridges. While recycled papers are widely accepted, one issue with using recycle toners is concerns for print quality. In addition, campaigns by printer manufacturers that postulate that all aftermarket toners are dangerous to printer machines. When a toner cartridge is carefully remanufactured with all the parts properly treated, the risks of the two aforementioned concerns are essentially close to zero.

At Toner Spot, our production lines follow rigorous processes to carefully select quality recyclable gears and carefully treat all the selected parts to ensure high quality performance after the cartridge is remanufactured. Additionally, all the remanufactured toner cartridges undergo various tests to ensure the high quality standards. We are so confident in our products that all of our remanufactured toner and ink cartridges come with a one year satisfaction guarantee.

How to Fix the Slow Printing Speed for Ricoh Printers?

Slow printing speed can generally be contributed to common reasons such as large file size, large amount of images, and their complexity. Two quick and easy ways to boost up the Ricoh print speed can be achieved by segmenting one large print file into a few smaller files, or installing additional memory if the unit is lack of sufficient space for the operation.


One other lesser known method is by switching off the “collate” function on Ricoh printer. Please note that if printing requires the collate function to be on, you can simply switch off the function within the application but keep it on still at the printer driver.

Steps to switch off the collate function:

1. Go to “File” then click “Print” on the dropdown menu


2. Click on the “Properties” button to access the printer driver
3. Click on the “Print Quality” tab
4. Under “Graphics Mode,” select “Raster”
5. Click on the “Setup” tab
6. There is an “Orientation” option on the right, clear/deselect the “Rotate” option below
7. Under the “Collate” pull-down menu, click and select “Off”


8. Click “OK” to exit from the printer driver menu

HP 2600 and 2605 Series Print Quality Troubleshoot

Sometime after you installed a new cartridge, you immediately notice that the color print quality come out under your expectations. The first reaction, understandably, is to suspect that the new toner cartridge that you have just replaced is defective. However, that is not always the case and the problem might be easily resolved with a few push of the button or reinstallation. This is often a much faster solution than waiting to return and replace the cartridge that might not have an issue to begin with. Below, we will discuss some common causes of print quality issue and also resolutions that might solve the problem.

Sealing Tape
One of the most common causes of print color inconsistency is caused by the protective sealing tape that was not removed prior to installation.

Solution: Verify that the sealing tape has been completely removed from the print cartridge and reinstall the cartridge.


Calibration
Toner cartridges sometimes are misaligned upon installation. Color inconsistency can also be caused by toner seating position, calibrating the cartridges will usually fix this issue.

Solution: Calibrate the toner cartridges with the instructions below

1. To calibrate from the printer, press (Left arrow) or (Right arrow) until the display reads System setup.
2. Press (Select).
3. Press (Left arrow) or (Right arrow) until the display reads Print quality.
4. Press (Select).
5. Press (Left arrow) or (Right arrow) until the display reads Calibrate color.
6. Press (Select).
7. Press (Left arrow) or (Right arrow) until the display reads Calibrate now.
8. Press (Select).
9. Press (Select) to confirm Calibrate now.

Toner Build Up
During the printing process, paper, toner and dust particles can accumulate inside the printer. Over time, this buildup can cause print-quality problems such as toner specks or smearing. This printer has a cleaning mode that can correct and prevent these types of problems.

Solution: Cleaning the printer and remove toner build-up

1. Open the front door. Locate the blue cleaning tool that is situated to the left above the black print cartridge.
3. Move the cleaning tool back and forth across the cartridge five times.
4. Ensure that the cleaning tool is returned to the left when the cleaning is finished.
5. Close the front door.
6. Run a cleaning page.



Above are some basic and simple solutions that might quickly resolve the print quality issue that you are currently encountering. These of course are not the only issues that might have caused print quality inconsistency. A more advanced post discussing color fading problem due to engine design will be posted in the future for HP Color LaserJet 2600, 1600, and 2605 series.
