Here is how it works.
Unlike HP printers, the Okidata laser printers use two seperate consumable peices to print, a toner cartridge and a drum cartridge (in HP printers the two pieces are combined into one cartridge).
THE TONER CARTRIDGE
Because the print unit in the Okidata machine is two seperate pieces with the toner cartridges being a simple recepticals, Okidata built the cartridges with a window that opens allowing the consumer to add more toner themselves, how convienant for the trophy maker or t-shirt shop using OPW Sublimation Toner. The drum unit last up to 30,000 prints, therefore the toner can be refilled many times before the drum would have to be replaced. You may never have to replace the actual toner cartridge itself, but the toner cartridge chip will have to be replace periodically.
To use for sublimation, empty (open and dump) the office toner from the toner cartridges and fill with OPW Sublimation Toner. Be careful not to get office toner into the drum. If you need help emptying the office toner or adding sublimation toner, give us a call at 972-438-1100, we will be happy to walk you through the process.

The Drum Unit
Careful consideration needs to be given to the drum unit. The printer comes with office toner in it. If office toner gets mixed into the sublimation toner, you will not get a good results. The two don't mix very well. To use the Okidata laser printers for sublimation, you have to make sure to keep office toner out of the drum. If regular office toner gets into the drum, the drum will have to be replaced before it can be used for sublimation. Therefore, if you are using a used printer replace the drum before introducing sublimation toner to the machine. If you are using a new machine, carefully remove the toner cartridges making sure they do not open releasing office toner into the drum.
If you need a drum unit, let us know, we offer a generic replacement.
Be sure this printer is used for sublimation only!!!
(so you don't have to keep replacing drums)
