Unfortunately, some of the aftermarket toners can really screw up some printers. Apparently they gum up some mechanisms and don't clean off as well between prints, thus messing up later prints. I don't have enough data to name printer/toner combinations giving trouble. I know that I had that trouble once with a Brother laser printer, but Brother toner doesn't work with acetone transfer anyway.And if you have the ability to purchase your toner from an office supplier pushing aftermarket toners (Rapid Refill is such a supplier) then it doesn't matter which brand of printer you use, my Brother HL-2140 works flawlessly with acetone.
Are you using acetone or some other type of solvent?Yup, Brother toner doesn't work with acetone, my printer was purchased strictly as a business tool where it was common to make twenty plus copies a day, OEM toner is expensive which drove me to seek out aftermarket toner. All during that time the printer was used for my day job, when I read up on the whole laser printer process and tried it on my Brother printer it worked like a charm, it was not until later that I discovered that Brother laser printers don't work............. for everybody else but me.
Lots of aftermarket toner refills on e-bay, suppose when my drum finally runs out I'll need to do some experimenting, until that time though I will continue to defy logic.
Hope you're having fun and staying healthy in body and soul during all of this craziness.
