Replacement Instructions for Toner Cartridge
These instructions detail the replacement procedures for a toner cartridge for the following
GCC Laser Printers: PLP II, PLP IIs, BLP II, BLP IIs, BLP Elite, BLP Elite 8, BLP Eclipse 4,
BLP Eclipse 8, BLP Eclipse Lite.
Press the cover release button to open the top cover.
Simultaneously pull the two blue toner latch tabs toward the front of the printer until the
cartridge unlocks. (This action closes the bottom of the toner cartridge, so some
resistance is expected.)
Lift the old toner cartridge out of the printer. To prevent spillage, place the toner
cartridge in the plastic bag provided with your new toner cartridge replacement kit.
Note: If you spill toner, wipe it off with a dampened cloth (cold water
only) or use a vacuum.
Take the new toner cartridge out of the box. Hold it horizontally and gently shake
it from side to side to loosen the toner. Do NOT tilt the toner cartridge.
Remove the blue tab from each end of the toner cartridge.
Remove the tape from the bottom of the toner cartridge.
Position the toner cartridge parallel to the opening in the EP cartridge/magazine, with the
arrow located on top of the toner cartridge pointing toward the back of the printer. Lower
the toner cartridge into the opening in the EP cartridge so that the grooves on both ends
of the toner cartridge slide over the tabs in the EP cartridge.
Simultaneously push both blue toner latch tabs toward the back of the printer until they
are flat. The toner latch tabs "click" into place. This action locks the toner cartridge
into place and opens the slot at the bottom of the toner cartridge, so some resistance is
to be expected.
Warning: If you do not simultaneously rotate the blue toner latch tabs, you may
break them off the EP cartridge. The EP cartridge cannot be repaired; therefore, it will
have to be replaced.

A new fuser cleaner pad is included with your toner replacement kit. With the top cover open,

it up. Throw away the old fuser cleaner pad.
Hold the new fuser cleaner pad by the handle and positon the left end underneath the black
tab in the printer. The black tab is located on the left side of the fuser cleaner pad
slot. Lower the handle into the slot and slide it to the right to lock the fuser cleaner
pad into place.
Cleaning the LED Strip (aka LED Array or LED Head)
Using the alcohol wipe provided with your new toner cartridge replacement kit, gently drag
the cloth back and forth across the LED strip. (To clean the LED Strip between toner
cartridge replacements, use a damp lint-free cloth with isopropyl alcohol.)
Cleaning the Corona Wire (aka Charge Wire)
The corona wire (or charge wire) is located in the EP cartridge. The blue cleaning tool is
built into the EP cartridge and is located in the back right corner. (It is not necessary
to remove the EP cartridge.) Gently slide the cleaning tool back and forth across the
