Never attempt to open an expended cartridge and attempt to refill. This will void any warranties on the device and could potentially harm the machine and the operator. All Kyocera toner cartridges are coded with an electronic chip that will identify it as being OEM and if it was previously used. Trying to circumvent the process will only cause damage to the machine and voiding the service contract.

The best place to purchase new toner cartridges is from your local authorized dealer. They have access to the manufacturers own brand and can offer assistance if something goes awry when it comes time to replace toner in your machine. Saving a few dollars by purchasing from an online retailer could end up costing you thousands of dollars in maintenance fees.
