Replacing Toner Cartridge Chip

What Happens When the Toner Cartridge Chip is Misread?

Cartridges could still have enough toner in them for printing if we refill them, and if the chip isn’t reset or replaced, warning signs continue to appear. The printer may refuse to print a page. This is because the computer is informed by the toner chip, and does not recognize that there is fresh toner in the cartridge. We can remedy this problem by replacing the used chip as this resets the counter.

Refilling and Reuse of the Toner Cartridge

The cost of replacing original printer cartridges is high and there’s a cost saving for us when a cartridge is refilled. The negative impact on our environment is also reduced when a toner cartridge is reused. Cartridges are made up of delicate parts including base metals and plastics. These represent costs to our environment in manufacturing and when a cartridge is thrown away instead of being recycled.

Reducing the Negative Impact on our Environment

Replacing the chip is of great advantage to us because it allows the refilling and reuse of printer cartridges without annoying printer messages popping up on the desktop. A second advantage is the overall reduction of human impact on our environment. The simple process of refilling cartridges and replacing the toner chip to allow reuse significantly reduces hazardous landfills.

Ensuring Quality in Your Toner Replacement

Toner cartridge chips are affordable and chips that are a perfect match for many types of printer can be purchased online. It is vital to make sure you choose a toner chip manufacturer with a good reputation and also that you select a provider that is known for quality refilling processes. Certain chip manufacturers display excellence in their chip development processes, taking care to reach consistently high standards.

How to Replace a Toner Cartridge Chip

Once you’ve refilled and cleaned the cartridge, locate the chip slot on the back or bottom of the cartridge. Some chip covers have screws and those may need to be removed first. Remove the cover and replace the old toner chip with the new one, being careful to align the circuitry correctly.

Electronic Recycling

There will be a cleaner environment. Most electronic waste is being dumped or sent to landfills, which are becoming scarcer. Doing this occupies a lot of space and spreads harmful toxins by degrading the ground water. This makes a dangerous situation for humans, animals, and plant life. When you recycle your electronics, it saves space in your landfills and helps to prevent other areas of the land from becoming dumping grounds. Recycling will also prevent the toxins from causing environmental pollution.

There are also the health benefits of electronic recycling. Electronic products are manufactured from different types of gases and plastics along with harmful elements like lead. When people and businesses just dump their electronics these chemicals are released into the air and the earth. These chemicals not only pose a threat to the health of the people who dump the electronics but also to others who live near the dumping grounds and landfill.

Many of the electronics, especially computer hardware, has many things that can be re-utilized and some of them do not require any processing. Some big companies even have their own recycling facilities where all of the reusable material is put to good use after it is sorted out and the reset is disposed of properly. Apple is one of those big companies that do this. By doing this, the recycled parts that were taken out do not have to be manufactured again saving energy and resources to make a new part.

One of the best benefits of electronic recycling is that if these products are recycled companies will not have to manufacture most of the components in electronics from scratch. The downside of this is that there could be the loss of some jobs. By recycling electronics the production costs will be reduced making electronics more affordable to everyone. Eventually this will help the economy.

Great PC for Gaming

System Case

You can get a desktop PCs in various sizes and shapes. Computers with a bigger case allow you to get several larger graphics, more hard drives, and sophisticated cooling arrangements. The most important part is the design of the motherboard, which gives numerous features. The limitation of such large cases is the fact that they occupy a lot of space and can dominate rooms of small sizes.

The number of computers having smaller Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards is increasing gradually. Their size is quite manageable. However, these are not adequate for users who like to double these up for graphic cards, or fit a larger quantity of internal parts, though they remain almost as powerful as their bigger cousins.

Graphic Cards

Of the internal components contained in computer’s case, the most significant for games is the graphic card. The biggest graphic cards are unlikely to get fitted into all cases. But generally, you should choose the most powerful card that your budget allows, as this component plays the most significant role in the way games perform.

There continues to be a strong competition with regard to price, the selection of graphic cards, plus advanced architectures among nVidia and AMD. The scales so far continue to swing among these two.

In case of gaming PCs, don’t ever be sparing when it comes to graphic cards. Though these components are the costliest, they are the most significant for gaming. Do not hesitate to go for a somewhat slower processor at the cost of a superior graphic card. On the whole, you should think in terms of matching their performance to steer clear of jams, and derive the most out of the two.

The Processor

Though the gaming experience is dependent on the graphic processor, your PC essentially requires its central processor. Even though most of what is available in the market comprises of the same basics, there is difference in their speed of using the memory, the selection of SSD and overclocking.

Wireless Barcode Scanners

Bluetooth Barcode Scanner – A bluetooth scanner is wireless again, but this time, it transmits scanned data back to a receiving cradle via bluetooth. The cradle is usually plugged into a host or P.C. Bluetooth scanners can also be paired with a laptops, tablets or smart phones.

Bluetooth scanners do vary in robustness, size and features. Some bluetooth barcode scanners can also store scanned data as well, giving it the functionality of a memory scanner as well.

APPLICATIONS – Point of sale, Inventory management, event management. Applications where you need mobility and not restricted by the length of cable that comes with a tethered scanner.

PDA Barcode Scanners (Batch) – A batch PDA Scanner is also wireless. However they have much more functionality than just a wireless barcode scanner. As mentioned earlier, wireless scanners can only capture the barcode #. Where a PDA scanner can capture the barcode # plus the quantity plus location ID # and much more.

A PDA barcode scanner that is batch, can only store the data within its memory. After the scanning is completed, you upload it back into excel, notepad or send back to an application via a cradle or direct cable.

APPLICATIONS – Stocktaking, asset management, event management. Basically any application where you need to capture multiple fields of information and that it’s not mission critical that the information collected, needs to be live and query a database.

PDA Barcode ScannersWi-Fi/3G – The last type of wireless PDA scanner is the type that has communications. Similar to the batch PDA scanners except they have the ability to communicate to a database live. Within warehousing and many applications within the four walls, PDA barcode scanners are very popular and communicate via Wi-Fi.

Outside the four walls, many wireless PDA scanners are communicating and using the cellular network via 3G.

APPLICATIONS – Warehousing, Inventory Control, Field Service, Logistics, Event Management. Any application where its mission critical that all information is live and querying a database is live for possible information coming back to the user.
