Are Ink Cartridgess soon to become a thing of the past? Technology is flying along in leaps and bounds and even back as far as 2007 the technology to print without ink or toner was around.

As long as the printer applied the heat in the correct manner via complex firmware the paper would produce life like pictures similar to those of the modern inkjet printer.

This is a common problem and is the same with most Brother Inkjet Printers also. What you need to do is to use the toner completely before you replace it.
