So I've updated the Printers page with details on the toner cartridges.

https://github.com/DoESLiverpool/wiki/wiki/OfficePrinters

I can't see how to work out if other toner cartridges are low but it looks as though we need a "44973511" for starters @jackie1050

Reading the manual it says first try tapping the cartridges so I'll do that now

Message now also says "Please change Belt Unit".

Web seems to suggest you can continue printing even after this message is displayed, but it’s not recommended.

Official toner cartriges for the ES5462 seem to go for £45–60 a piece, and last 6000 pages. Non-official compatibles cost £30-40.

Most places seem cagey about showing prices for a replacement Belt Unit, but I did spot one price online:

ES44472202 Belt Unit – £64 (£53 + VAT)

Another alternative—but probably not one I’d recommend—is spending less money on a shiny piece of paper that tricks the printer into thinking the Belt Unit is new:

"Image Transfer Belt Reset Chip" – £15 inc VAT
