How to Solve the Issue of Constantly Recurring Paper Jams When Using Remanufactured Toner Cartridges

Remanufactured toner cartridge is causing recurring paper jams. But the remanufactured toner cartridge looks identical to the original toner cartridge! What could possible be causing the paper to jam, and has anyone ever figured out a fix or workaround so as to avoid buying the higher cost tone cartridges?

First off, I know it will be easiest to say "Just buy the original name brand toner cartridge!" but that's not what this question is about. It's about finding a (person who has figured out a) technique or workaround for making these remanufactured toner cartridges just work! I certainly read all the issues people had with remanufactured toner cartridges, including paper jams. I thought I would take a chance and try one anyway... for $25 bucks, I figured it wouldn't hurt.
Now here I am with the remanufactured toner cartridge, and it looks exactly the same as the original toner cartridge in every way, shape and form! It worked great out of the box, of course. Now, about 50 pages in, I started getting occasional paper jams. Now, I'm getting constant paper jams, even with "99.99% paper-jam free paper!" Of course, naturally, if I replace the original back into the printer, it works perfectly! What the heck?!
I honestly don't see what could be causing the constant paper jams, as there seem to be no imperfections with the remanufactured toner cartridge, but I'm wondering... has anyone here figured out any solutions to this issue? Techniques, or workarounds? I'd really like to keep using the remanufactured toner cartridge if at all possible!
