Toner Dusting

Toner dusting refers to a situation where the toner powder seems to be anywhere inside your printer’s

  • Step 1 - Open the back door of the printer.
  • Step 2 - Remove the fuser.
  • Step 3 - Remove the toner collection tray. The toner collection tray is a small black tray that sits directly behind the fuser.  The black tab that must be pulled down to remove the tray.
  • Step 4 - Look for piles of toner in the tray and below the tray in the feeder assembly.
