Q. How to inspect the damaged cartridges for your printer?

One need to keep a check on the cartridges to make sure they are not damaged or faulty. See the process below to make the cartridge check:

  • Remove the HP Laserjet Pro 400 M401DN toner cartridges from the product, and confirm that the orange protective tape (the packaging seal of the toner cartridge) has been removed
  • Check if the memory chip damaged. It is metallic chip on the top side of the toner cartridge that gets in contact with the printer system on the cartridge installation. This cartridge chip notify the printer about the toner level in the cartridge and if the cartridges are installed and working properly or not
  • Check the surface of the imaging drum on the bottom of the toner cartridge

Q. Does your printer includes HP Laserjet Pro 400 M401DN toner cartridges with the printer or they must be purchased separately?
We do not sell the printer on the site. However, we know that from past few years HP is including the cartridges with every laserjet printer purchase. These cartridges are same as the normal cartridges, but the only difference is that these cartridges are filled a bit more toner powder than the regular cartridges. Reason being the new printer needs extra ink for its new and dry image drums/printheads to absorb the ink to start with.
