What Went Wrong with the Mailing?
(5) I ran out of toner cartridge late on Sunday, necessitating a wait until stores opened Monday morning; that meant I spent Monday printing paper and stuffing envelopes instead of making phone calls during business hours.
Next Time: Check toner levels and buy a spare cartridge in advance.
On the HP2600N I have turned OFF the programmed toner check, because I have read, and I believe, that the messages arise from a computed count of pages printed, rather than a measurement of the amount of toner remaining.
Nonetheless four little LCD symbols aim to tell me roughly how much toner is left.
I suspect that the gauges are less accurate than the fuel reading on the car.
However, unless a cartridge is well above the half mark before I start a large and critical print run, I’d be well-advised to purchase a replacement cartridge ahead of time. After all, the cartridge IS going to run out, so we know I have to buy one anyway. The real question is “How willing am I to tolerate a delay of a day or two in the print job?”.
