Printer & Toner

Hi everyone!

We've been going through toner for the GoPrint printers at an alarming rate this semester, so I want to offer some words in case we're unnecessarily changing the toner cartridges.

First of all, each toner cartridge costs approx. $180. That's a lot of dough!

Secondly, if someone says their print job came out streaky, don't believe them till you see it. And even if you do see it, investigate the toner situation:

• Take the toner out of the printer and feel it. Does it feel empty? Does it feel full?

• Shake the toner cartridge up, and put it back. That will provide more streak-free printing for a while. After a while, if people start complaining about their print job being streaky, then we know the toner is definitely running low and you can go ahead and change it.

We will start keeping a log of how often we change the toner, and what printer's toner we changed. The log will be in the storage closet by the toner, so you won't forget to fill it out!

Thanks everyone.
And just a reminder, please comment on the entry so I know you're aware of the new log.
