    Hi All,

    My mono Kyocera laser printer has finished its toner cartridge TK140 , (seperate drum) and was going to buy a new one until I got a shock at their current price £72 !

    I have refilled some other laser printer cartridges in the past but a messy job.

    Seem there are several remanufactured ones at around £27 so thought I might try one but knowing who are good supplier is the problem ?

    Can see some for a little as £10 on ebay, though the sellers show lots of sales, but they all show 100% positive feedback which seems unlikely, or I'm getting too sceptical ?

    Any recommendations please ?

      Hi,

      Afraid they do not list any toners for Kyocera printers.

      Ordered one of these new,compatible cheapies and it arrived next day, looks identical, well packed etc, works fine.
      Black Toner Cartridge For Kyocera TK-140 FS-1100 | eBay

      Makes you wonder how this £9.99 can be that much different from the £72 selling price of Kyoceras originals.

      Might be missing something, but did look for a UK supplier and that site gave me all the indications its a uk company in Wales, yet payment goes to China.

      It's like a lot of stuff. It's made in China, shipped to the UK and stored in a warehouse. When you order from China, they tell the warehouse to deliver it to you.
      They don't need any administration in the UK, just "packers and posters."
