Thanks for siefer999's refill instructions:
condensed siefer99 version
remove the 2 philips screws, pry off the side cover to expose fill hole. avoid touching the greehn photoconductive drum
empty old toner
use a pair of needle nose pliers or a flat screwdriver to pull/pru off the fill plug hole
shake the toner bottle well and pour in, reinstall plug hole, etc.
shake cartraige. run test prints
est. time 5 mins. i could probably do it in 2.5mins
and also from famous_unknown:
-two screws hold a plastic piece that covers thee hard plastic refill cap
-remove screws and plastic
-gently pry the cap off and dump old toner
-refill with new, go slow not to overfill (I went fast - what a mess )
-replace cap, give it a horizontal shake
-put back in printer
The purple arrows show where the short phillips-head screws come out of the toner cartridge. The screws are not much more than 1cm long and just hold the black plastic plate to the main body of the catridge.
The plate is shown roughly to scale. It's not very thick. It just covers the hollow in which the refill hole is located - there are no loose parts or complicated crap inside for you to screw up. The red arrow shows where you will find the hole once you remove the plate. The refill hole is about the size of a quarter.
Use a very thing flat-head screwdriver, knife, etc. to pry the hard plastic cap up a little. You don't want to use much force. Then once the cap is slightly loosened, grab the cap with a pair of needle nosed pliers and give it one solid yank. Cap is off, refill slowly, and work put it back together. Try no to touch the green part when you're handling it. Done!
Samsung ML-1710, ML-1740
ML1710D1 US$5.99 (+s/h US$2.5) 1 - 65g black toner refill (For Starter Kit 1000 sheets)
ML1710D3 US$6.99 (+s/h US$2.5) 1 - 90g black toner refill (For Regular Kit 3000 sheets)
TN460 US$12.99 (+s/h US$3.90) 1 - 210g black toner refill (high-yield)
Great prices and very easy to refill. (Easier than refilling ink-jets. Refilling time is about 5-10 minutes.)
Fast shipping, no custom charges for small orders (e.g. 2 refills), no taxes.
Had placed several orders with them with no problem.
I've refilled several starter kits (ML-1710D1) for 3 times each, printouts are still sharp and clear,
then toner starts building up at the two drum ends making black stripes on the 2 sides of printouts.
From the seller TonerKits:
We expect to see a lot of orders from Canadian buyers for the Samsung ML-1610/1615 series, ML-2010/2015/2020 series and for the Multifunction SCX-4521 as well. All these machines use very similar cartridges and are refilled the same basic way. Despite the similarity in toner cartridges, we suggest using only the recommended kit for each cartridge because of variations in load size and hardware requirements (i.e. the SCX model requires a reset fuse). The new [rfdlink=/forums/autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=167]Dell[/rfdlink] LaserPrinter 1100 is also part of this group since it is a Samsung design.
Q1. Is the ML-2010 using the same refill method as the ML-1710 and ML-1740 ?
Ans. The cartridge design is somewhat different than the ML-1710/1740 so the refill method incorporates an additional step in the refilling process. We still consider it an easy cartridge to refill and have attached a set of refill instructions to this email so you can see what's involved.
Q2. What is the difference between (regular) toner and hi-yield toner for the ML-2010 ?
Ans. The difference between our regular and hi-yield refills is the amount of toner that comes in the bottle. The toner is the same type...just different pre-measured load sizes depending on the cartridge being refilled.
