Laser printer life

By gabopagan ·
We have an HP Laserjet 8100DN that has printed about 2 million pages in the last 18 months (a new toner every 3 weeks!). We are wondering how long will it last at that pace. Anyone know where we can find information about average printer life?

Well within the Monthly Duty Cycle

by mark_mclain In reply to Laser printer life

2 million divided by 18 = 111,111.11 (cool, check the repeating 1's out) The duty cycle or maximum recommended monthly output per Hewlett Packard is 150,000.
According to the specs you could have printed 700,000 more pages than you printed over the last 18 months. I realize this doesn't answer your "avg printer life" question but you should feel comfortable knowing your not overworking your printer. Avg printer life is subjective to alot of different variables such as media, toner, environmental conditions, recommended service etc. Hope this helps. Information found at HP.COM using "Search" for 8100DN Duty Cycle.

8100DN Duty Cycle

by ELFTEK In reply to Well within the Monthly D ...

The duty cycle for you printer (per HP) is 150,000 per month. You are at 111,000 on average. The life of the printer would depend on the environment and maintenence of the printer. For example, at your current level in an air conditioned, fairly dust free room with regular maintenence and cleaning it should last several years, or until you surpass the duty cycle or it is no longer viable to fix or maintain it.
