How To Replace the Toner On Your Xerox Printer (VersaLink B600s)

Submitted by Matthew Eberhart on Mon, 06/26/2023 - 13:12

It can be frustrating when you need to change or replace parts on your printer and don’t know how to do it. 

Every printer model is different, and many printer parts have different configurations, replacement time intervals, and service needs. Even printer toner, a common and necessary component of all Xerox laser printers, varies depending on what model printer you are using.

Like filling up your car with gas, replacing your printer toner when it runs out is important because your printer cannot run without toner. 

But the process varies between models, which makes replacements complicated for those who don’t know much about printer maintenance.

For some, replacing printer toner may be easy to figure out with just a little bit of help. 

For others, the relatively simple process of changing printer toner can be overly complicated and confusing. 

Even if you think you know how to change the toner on your machine, it can still save valuable time to watch someone else do it before you give it a try.

Quick Toner Replacement for a Xerox VersaLink B600 Series Printer

Toner is a powdery substance applied to paper to create an image when you print or copy on a laser machine. Laser printer toner is usually contained within an easy-to-use cartridge to keep things from getting messy. 

In this how-to guide, I’ll explain how to replace toner cartridges for the following compatible Xerox printer models: 

•    VersaLink B600
•    VersaLink B605
•    VersaLink B610
•    VersaLink B615

Different machines have different supply items and settings. That’s why it is important to follow the instructions specific to your Xerox printer model. For more information about replacing toner on different Xerox printer models, check out:

Let’s uncomplicate printer maintenance by walking through toner replacement. You can follow the process by reading the written instructions provided below (with pictures) or you can watch the video linked at the top of the blog.

Part One: Open the Front Cover of Your Machine to Locate Toner

We will be walking through toner replacement on a Xerox VersaLink B610 model, but the process is the same for the VersaLink B600, VersaLink B605, and VersaLink B615 printer models.

Replacing the toner on a Xerox VersaLink B600 series printer is simple, but sometimes it helps to watch someone else go through the process step-by-step. 

This example is for a monochrome (black-and-white) printer. 

If you prefer video instruction, you can check out the how-to video at the top of this blog. 

For written instructions, with pictures, keep reading:

1. Open your printer’s cover. For this model, you will grab each side of the printer, pull, and pop open the front cover.

2.    Locate the orange strip beneath the front cover on your Xerox printer.

3.    Grab the handles on top of and beneath the orange strip and pull the toner cartridge straight out.

Environmental sustainability is important to STPT, and we know it is important to you too, so don’t forget to recycle your used toner cartridge with a program like Xerox Green World Alliance.

Part Two: Insert New Toner Into Your Printer

1.    Your new toner cartridge will come in a box, like this:

2. Take the toner cartridge out of the box and prepare to insert it into the slot on your machine. Use one hand to grasp the two handles on top of and below the orange strip. 


3. Locate the two guides on either side of the toner cartridge.

4. The guides will match up with the inside rails on your printer. You will then push the cartridge with a bit of force until it slides into the slot on the machine. You will hear a click when the toner cartridge has been fully inserted.

5. Close the front cover on your printer. And that’s it!

Even though toner cartridge replacement sounds complicated, the process is pretty simple. Within a few minutes, you should be done with your replacement, and you can get back to work without losing too much time.

No one wants to have projects back up while they try to figure out how to replace supplies or perform routine maintenance.

Following these instructions for toner replacement will ensure you don’t get bogged down while trying to make a quick replacement. You can find more helpful how-to blogs on our learning center.
