LaserJet Page Yields

For all LaserJet printers and Multi Functional Products sold, HP publishes page yield data for the printer function of these devices. 

Page yield data should be used as a starting point for comparison purposes, and not to predict the exact yield you will get from your HP printer and cartridge. Likewise, the declared yield is not intended to be the minimum number of pages that the cartridge will print. Rather, page yield data is meant to estimate the average yield expected from a particular cartridge when measured using the ISO test methodology in connection with a designated printer system. Individual cartridges can perform above and below this average due to variation in the cartridge manufacturing process. Additionally, actual yield varies considerably based on factors such as the content of printed pages, typical printer job size, the environmental conditions during operation and the amount of color printing relative to monochrome printing. For more information see How toner is used.

Printer Toner Usage & the Impact on Print Cartridge Yield

How Toner is Used
Other Factors impacting LaserJet Print Cartridge Yield

The ISO/IEC yield methodologies allow the customer to compare the declared yield of cartridges from many different manufacturers. The printing style of the customer (type of documents printed, number of color pages, size of print jobs, image density, simplex v. duplex, etc.) will have a substantial impact on the cartridge’s actual page yield. Accordingly, actual yield may vary considerably from the declared yield and HP cannot guarantee that a customer will always achieve the declared page yield. Many customers will find that their print cartridge provides more pages than this declared yield and other customers will find that their printing style results in the cartridge providing less pages.See LaserJet page yields for more detail Continue reading “Printer Toner Usage & the Impact on Print Cartridge Yield”

Do the HP Printer use toner during calibration?

We replaced the Magenta toner cartridge and the printer goes through both initialization  and calibration.  Before i replaced the cartridge the yellow toner cartridge had about 2-3 pages of toner.  When the printer completed it’s process the yellow cartridge shows empty.

Does calibrating use toner?
