Don't ever check the door plate when you board a commercial airliner. Some of them are quite old. That said, perhaps the oldest part on the plane is the door plate.

I cannot speak for your model of printer but I used a knockoff toner (likely refilled) for my color printer and regretted it. It leaked toner, produced streaky prints etc etc.
