Compatible Q2612A toner Review by Gerry Rice
Although these toner cartridges are less costly than the original toner cartridges I don't think they are as good as the original ones. I think the output was less than I am used to and was slightly disappointed despite the cheap cost of the toner. (Posted on 01/11/2017)
HP Laserjet 1012 ink Review by John McCann
Great price and really fast shipping. These toner cartridges gave a page yield of 3,000 pages approximately per toner and produced excellent results. Good replacement at half the cost of the genuine Hp product. I would highly recommend this product. (Posted on 29/09/2017)

SECTION 13: Refilling HP 12A Toner Cartridge

The HP Q2612A toner is one of the famous HP toner having a long market presence. No chip, easy to install and refill, stores more toner and compatible with a number of HP printers.

To refill this toner you need the following tools:
  • Screwdriver
  • Wire cutter
  • Funnel cap
  • Toner bottle
  • Awl
HP Q2612A laser toner step-by-step refilling process
  1. Move the protective shutter aside and take a spring out.
  2. Unscrew 2 screws which are holding the lid of the drum.
  3. Take off the lid carefully.
  4. Use the awl, hook the charging roller by the metallic axis and take it out.
  5. Now, you will see 2 holes inside of the cartridge through which the pin should be pushed out.
  6. Use an awl, insert it into the hole and push the pin out.
  7. Repeat the same on the other side of the cartridge. Be careful while handling the toner. You need not turn cartridge a lot because it has some toner waste.
  8. Use the wire cutter and take the pin out from the outer side of the cartridge.
  9. Do the same thing on the other side. The cartridge is now separated two halves.
  10. Now take the drum shutter out, unscrew it, shake the wasted toner out and vacuum clean it.
  11. Take the other half toner with a magnetic roller. Unscrew the lid on the side without a gear on the magnetic roller. Carefully dangling the lid, take it off.
  12. Hold the magnetic roller of HP 12A toner cartridge and pull out the cap that covers the toner reservoir.
  13. Carefully take out the toner leftovers.
  14. Now fill the toner by holding the magnetic roller up.
  15. Install the lid back and screw it carefully.
  16. Take the waste toner tank half. Wipe the charging roller and install it back.
  17. Next, install the OPC drum. Don’t place the side lid back yet, because it will be inconvenient to install pins back after that.
  18. Now put the halves together and insert the pin from the one side and then from the other side.
  19. Push them in tightly using a screwdriver. The shutter should close up just fine.
  20. Put the lid back and screw it.
  21. Place the spring back in the correct position. If it is placed wrongly, it will brush against the drum. Your cartridge is refilled now.

If you replace the cartridge while the system was off, it does not get the message of the replacement. To prompt the printer to read this new cartridge, you need to reset the device.

Turn off the printer and disconnect its power cord from its back and the wall socket. Wait for 20 minutes and reconnect the power cable to the printer and the power socket. Turn on the printer. This will make the printer to read the recently installed cartridge and resolve the error.
