The problem is, I am halfway through a marathon cartridge, and the thought of having to put up with this noise for the next 6000 pages is unbearable!
Can I use a silicon spray, or something else? If so, exactly where do I spray?
I actually took it out to have a look. Under a sliding cover, there is a big 2" shiny drum. I can't see any wipers, but I presume it is somewhere on the inside.
I've been told these cartridges are impossible for 'normal' people to refill, and difficult even with the right equipment. So it doesn't look likely I can repair it.
Do you recommend I buy brand new cartridges in future, instead of remanufactured ones?
Is sounds like your cartridges are remade perfectly. If I lived in US I'd buy yours, but unfortunately I live in Australia.
I guess I might have to cough up the >$300 for a new cartridge.
Sometimes I wished I'd gotten a LJ4 for the cheap repairs. service manuals, and toner refills. :-(
BTW, thanks for your great forum, Moe!
