Copystar CS-1500 Toner Cartridge - 7,200 Pages
  OVER 100

Price:  $12.89
Product Description
Copystar CS-1500 Toner Cartridge - 7,200 Pages

This Toner Cartridge prints 7200 pages with an average 5% page coverage. The amount of pages can vary depending upon the amount of ink printed onto each page. (5% page coverage is a standard Copystar specification)

This product comes with a 6 month Warranty against any defects (including free replacement). We stand behind our products 100%, as these are not manufactured by Copystar.

Why toner? Why not call it ink? Regular ink dries quickly, which is why cartridges for inkjet printers do not last long. Laser Printers use toner, which is ink in the form of powder. A sealed toner cartridge can be stored for 2+ years prior to usage.

Product Manuals
When do I Replace a Toner Cartridge in the Copystar CS-1500 Laser Printer?
The Copystar CS-1500 Laser Printer features a precise built-in system, which is constantly monitoring the toner level of the installed cartridge. The system will display an error code on the control LCD of your laser device or/and an indicator will be lit/blinking, once it detects a toner cartridge related abnormality. All of these error codes and signals are listed and described below.

• ‘’E32’’ – This error code normally indicates that the toner cartridge is not installed correctly. Therefore, you should reinstall the toner cartridge, and then check if the error code is still displayed. You must install a new toner cartridge, if the message is still displayed afterwards.

• The [Add Toner] indicator is ON – This is an indication of a nearly exhausted toner cartridge. You should install a new toner cartridge soon after the initial appearance of this signal. Otherwise, all print operations will be disabled very soon.

• The [Add Toner] indicator is ON, and the following error code ‘’E33’’ is displayed on the control LCD – This is an indication of a non-operational mode caused by a completely exhausted toner cartridge. The only available action is the installation of a new toner cartridge. Please be aware that you won’t be able to finish your current task or/and to print new documents during the non-operational period. Please note that the [Add Toner] indicator is located above the control LCD, and it is illustrating six black dots in a pyramidal order with a black arrow pointing towards the dots.
How to Install a Toner Cartridge in the Copystar CS-1500 Laser Printer
The toner cartridge replacement in your Copystar CS-1500 Laser Printer includes the execution of a relatively simple procedure. There are no special tools or technical knowledge required for the successful replacement of the toner cartridge.
You must start the replacement procedure by opening the upper front cover of your Copystar CS-1500 Laser Printer, and then open its front cover. After that, you must take the drum unit (process unit) along with the attached exhausted toner cartridge out of the printer by carefully pulling the assembly towards you, and then slide the lock lever (located on the top side of the drum unit) to the marked ‘’unlocked’’ position. Please be aware that any prolonged exposure (>5 minutes) of the drum unit to direct light will lead to future print quality issues. In the next step of the replacement procedure, you must pull the lock release lever of the toner cartridge towards you, and then remove the exhausted consumable component from the still operational drum unit. Now, you must shake the new toner cartridge at least 10 times horizontally, and then remove the orange protective seal from its shutter. Once the new toner cartridge is prepared, you must insert it into the drum unit, and then push the new component on the marked with ‘’Push Here’’ areas until it clicks securely into place. After that, you must push the left lock release lever forward to ‘’locked’’ position, and then perform the included below routine cleaning procedure.
Copystar CS-1500 Cleaning Procedure
1. Look at the top side of the drum unit, and locate the green charger cleaner tab.
2. Slide the green tab along the cleaning channel several times, and then return it to the marked position (‘’CLEANER HOME POSITION’’).
3. Clean the metal registration roller with the included (with the new toner cartridge) cleaning cloth, but please avoid touching the black surface of the transfer roller.
4. Proceed with the next step of the replacement procedure.
After the successful execution of the cleaning procedure, you must align the pins of the drum unit with the guides of the slot, and then insert the drum unit along with the securely attached new toner cartridge into the printer. Finally, you must close the front cover, and then close the upper front cover of your Copystar CS-1500 Laser Printer.

Copystar CS-1500 Review


The Copystar CS-1500 is a great first copier. Not only is it relatively cheap to buy, it also does a quite efficient job that's suits the needs of small businesses. This desktop copier is a perfect purchase for people with a home or small office, as it requires relatively little space to accommodate.


The Copystar CS-1500 has a copy speed of 15 copies per minute, which is a very good copier for people with a small budget. The maximum monthly volume is set as 15,000 pages per month. It contains a standard 250 sheet paper drawer, and a 50 sheet multipurpose tray which is more than what is expected from a budget copier. This Copystar copier also boasts an impressive output resolution of 600 dpi.

The Copystar CS-1500 is capable of handling many kinds of documents. Input media types include colored paper, letter heads and adhesive mailing labels as well as pre-drilled and pre-printed stocks. It is also capable of reducing or enlarging a document 50% to 200% of the original (in 1% increments).

The dimensions (with the optional document processor attached) are 19.5"W x 16.6"D x 17.9"H and weight approximately 30.9 lbs. This makes the copier very well suited in a lot of different work spaces and offices.

As expected, this copier comes with 16MB of memory, allowing scanning once and printing many. This can be upgraded to either 32MB, 64MB or 128MB (this is completely optional).

One of the major advantages is the 100,000 copy drum. It costs around $300 per 100,00 copies for a new drum. The toner type is a cartridge which can cost around $70, depending on where you buy from. This gives an estimated 6,000 pages at 6% page coverage. The developer also allows 100,000 copies for around $60. This allows the copier to be run fairly cheaply compared to its nearest rivals. These prices are for genuine Copystar products. Compatible cartridges can be bought at a cheaper price, although for maximum quality genuine refills are recommended. It is important to take into account that the page yield is not 100% accurate, and that the actual yield can be altered depending on certain factors. For example, the size of the paper you are using can affect it, as well as how much content is getting printed to the pages. If you are just printing out and copying letterheads, it will obviously get much more usage than if you print out full page documents. You printer settings can also affect the page yield the copier produces.

For a small business and first time buyer, this copier is highly recommended. If you encounter any errors or faults with the copier, there is help on the Internet including an operational guide, which can be of much help - especially to people with little or no knowledge and experience of operating a copier.


With budget copiers, there are also some slight downfalls. The CS-1500 copies only in black, because of its laser print capabilities. Some may argue that the run speed of 15 copies per minute is too low, but for a small end business this is more than enough. This is the same for the 15,000 printed pages per month; many people will find it very hard to max this out per month.

This particular copier doesn't allow automatic two sided printing, only manual. This can cause a nuisance in people who are wanting to work fast and could affect the work flow. In terms of price, only the person buying it can decide whether it is cheap or not. But when you look at all of the features it does have, it really is good value for money.

There is no doubt in the performance this copier can produce, being very reliable and dependable. It has sufficient features for the price providing excellent value for money. It is also fairly easy to use after being set up correctly. Overall the Copystar CS-1500 is a very good and versatile copier. It offers what is expected from a desktop copier and is well suited for start ups and first time buyers.
