I have my printer next to my desk, and oftentimes eat at my desk. I had a bottle of oil on my desk and accidentally knocked it over and it spilled on my printer which was beside my desk. Now, when I print, there are about 2 inches of whitespace on one side of the paper because the printer won't print there. I opened up my printer and noticed when looking at the toner cartridge that about 2 inches of the side of the black part of the toner cartridge looks like the toner came off of it. I was thinking of just buying some more toner and refilling the cartridge. I'm not sure if the oil somehow messes with the toner though, and doing so would just be a waste of time.
For anybody who understands how printers work, is adding new toner to the cartridge a good idea, or do you think the oil has messed it up permanently? (I don't want to buy another toner cartridge because they cost more than the printer itself did)
I already tried shaking the cartridge around and that didn't seem to help
