Important Notes Concerning Supplies

  1. Make sure to use the correct part numbers when you order new supplies. Different models use different supplies (such as toner, developer, fuser oil, oiler belts, and fine filters). Using the wrong developer or toner, for example, causes serious print quality problems and will require a service call to restore correct print quality.
  2. The toner bottle can also be used as a waste toner collection bottle.
    Do not reuse waste toner.
  3. The yields listed in Table 51 are approximations. They are not a warranty or guarantee of minimum life, and are provided only to assist in supplies planning. Toner yield is affected by many factors, including print coverage per page, contrast setting, paper type and size, model type, and environmental conditions. More dense applications, such as extensive bar codes, or images, or solid area fill, or printing with a higher contrast setting can expect to achieve yields lower than those achieved with the average text page. Your actual usage data should be used to establish the life of the supply product in your specific application.
  4. Yield estimates shown in Table 51 are based on four square inches of toner coverage per foot of forms (see note 6).
    1. For MICR toner, approximate yields are based on an average signal strength setting of 120%.
    2. For most toners, approximate yields are based on an optical density setting of 1.20.
    3. for InfoPrint 4100 Enhanced Printing Toner Version 3 approximate yields are based on an optical density setting of 1.05.
  5. The life of the absorbent pad for the oil pan varies according to the way you run your printer. In general, the more often the printer is idle, the more often you may need to replace the pad. InfoPrint Solutions Company recommends that you check the absorbent pad weekly. The InfoPrint 4000/4100 Operator's Guide contains instructions for checking the pad. Contact your service representative for replacement pads.
  6. When calculating yields for multiple-up printing, you must calculate for the side-by-side placement of the page on the form. For example, when printing 2-up on 8.5 x 11 inch paper, four square inches must be multiplied by 11/12, which equals 3.67 square inches. So for 2-up printing, you must divide 3.67 by two, which equals 1.835 squares inches per page.

Table 50, Table 51, Table 52, and Table 53 are work sheets that list supplies and their part numbers. Make copies of these work sheets to use when you order supplies.
