New Compatible HP CE278A Toner Cartridge Instructions

A video providing specifications and a replacement demonstration for the New Compatible HP CE278A black toner cartridge.

New Compatible HP CE278A Toner Cartridge Transcript

At 5% page coverage, the New Compatible HP CE278A toner cartridge has an estimated yield of around 2,100 pages. The cartridge is easy to store, measuring 4.9x14.8 inches, and it weighs just 1.7 pounds, making it easy to install as well.

Start preparing your new compatible CE278A cartridge by removing it from its box and from the bag. Redistribute the toner inside by rocking your cartridge back and forth a few times, then loop a finger inside the tape and pull firmly until the strip is completely removed. Before you place the cartridge into the printer, remember to pull the black paper in the direction of the arrows.

Raise the cartridge door of the printer and locate the handle on the empty HP CE278A toner cartridge. Grasp the handle and pull the cartridge upward and remove it from the machine.

With the new CE278A cartridge prepared, align it with the guides on each side and slide it downward into the opening. Press on the cartridge to make sure it is fully seated, then you can close the cartridge door.

p>The HP CE278A toner cartridge is compatible with several models, including the HP LaserJet M1536 series of multifunction devices, and the LaserJet P1560, P1566, and P1606 series of personal laser printers.

For a list of HP CE505X compatible printers, see the “Fits Printer Models” tab.

We use the P1606dn printer in several locations at our school. Each teacher that uses this toner has nothing but good things to say about the print quality and print yield per container. Since this is an out of pocket expense, I went on line and found your company and passed your information around to other staff members and shared the use of my printer. Since my first purchase several members have come to me and requested your information. We will surely use your company for other purchases.

Ink Technology is the perfect answer for people who still must have print excellence. Many States have machine readable tax forms that need bar codes or pixel codes to reproduce clearly and completely. These cartridges have no smudging or running... and they last a LONG time!

2 black HP toner cartridges were ordered 3 years ago. Even when the cartridges were seemed to be running low, I could still print out a few more pages until my order for another cartridge was received. The order was placed and received quickly so yes, I have recommended it to people I know who have home businesses and print frequently.

Our office was so thrilled to find a quality replacement cartridge for our scanner/printer! This product is absolutely comparable to any name brand cartridge - but at a fraction of the price.

HP black ink cartridge
Written on 7/27/2017
After making the switch from the prohibitively expensive HP branded toner to a compatible generic brand, it was such a great value to get the same quality for so much less money. So, I had to try it for the ink cartridges that I use in my HP color printer too. Happy to say that the colors are true and the print quality is awesome. Another great money-saving value in a generic ink.
