If you own a Dell 1130 printer, you may encounter some errors related to the toner cartridge or the toner chip. The toner cartridge is the container that holds the toner powder, while the toner chip is a small device that communicates with the printer and monitors the toner level. When the toner chip detects that the toner level is low or empty, it will send a signal to the printer and display an error message on the computer screen. Some of these error messages are:
Install toner cartridge
Toner cartridge end of life
Toner life end
Replace new cart
These error messages may prevent you from printing or reduce the print quality. To fix these errors, you have three options:
Replace the toner cartridge with a new genuine one. This is the most expensive option but it will ensure the best print quality and compatibility.
Refill the toner cartridge with new toner powder and replace the toner chip with a new compatible one. This is a cheaper option but it may require some technical skills and tools.
Refill the toner cartridge with new toner powder and reset the toner chip with a special software or device. This is the cheapest option but it may not work for all printers or chips.
In this article, we will focus on the third option and show you how to reset the toner chip for Dell 1130 printer using a software or a device.

However, you should be aware that resetting the toner chip does not refill the toner powder, so you should also refill the toner cartridge before resetting the chip. Otherwise, you may damage your printer or get poor print quality.
