    When changing cartridges, should all room lights be extinguish? We have been told to turn off all lights before we remove the used cartridge and install the new one. Also, we have found that shaking the cartridge when the copies are getting faint will allow at least 100 more prints to be made, before finally swapping out the old and installing the new. The printer is a new HP LaserJet 600 M602.

    Thank you.

    Hi there Ted, actually you don’t have to switch all the lights off when changing the toner cartridges. But remember that these toner cartridges should be store in a dark place. About shaking the cartridge, yes, that would work and give you more prints. Usually because the powder get stuck inside the cartridge itself and shaking it gently will distribute the toner powder thus giving you more prints.
