Re: Check Cartridge message

This could be a problem with the ink build up in the waste resevoir. Take out the cartridge and using a flashlight look and see if there is a build up of ink near the waste tank area. This is a spunge that captures the ink that it doesn't use. There is a sensor that gets blocked.

Fax machine Samsung Inkjet Fax SF-360. Ink was finished so ordered the correct ink cartridge and replaced it now on the screen it tells us to install ink cartridge. I have tried severeal times and i know...

If the Toner Low/Empty message does not automatically clear when a new cartridge is installed, use the following to clear the message manually:
1.Press MENU # 1 9 3 4. The machine should display TECH.
2.Press MENU, and ENTER. The machine should display TECH Mode.
3.Press the left arrow < once. The machine will show NEW CARTRIDGE.
4.Press ENTER, the machine will show YES.
5.Press ENTER, there should not be any Toner Low/Empty message.
6.Exit TECH MODE, press MENU # 1 9 3 4. The machine will no longer display TECH.
If Toner Low/Empty message continues, there may be a problem with the toner cartridge or the machine.

We purchased a new cartridge because it said install new ink cartridge,we installed new cartridge it still says install new ink cartridge and will not receive or send faxes

it will not send or receive a fax if the error is still there. Clear the error by trying these steps:
-open cartridge door and remove the cartridge
-unplug the power cord at the back of printer
-after 30 seconds, plug the cord and turn on the printer. It will ask for the cartridge.
-Open the cartridge door and insert the cartridge
-close the access door
-if the error is cleared, try faxing again.

I hope this helps.

Toner life end

Try this:

Open the cover, leaving everything inside. Press Options, then *00 to reset the fax.

If that doesn't work:

Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and drum. Turn off the fax. On the right-hand side of the cartridge, there is a round hole that is covered with a clear plastic or glass. Cover that hole up with tape, put the cartridge back in the drum, and put them back into the fax, and turn it back on.

Error #1203

Error #1203

A 1203 error message on the operator panel could indicate a problem with one of the ink cartridges. Please carry out the steps below the image to confirm that this is a cartridge failure rather than a hardware problem
  1. Make sure the All-In-One is powered on.
  2. Pull the control panel towards you, and then open the cartridge access door. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position.

  3. Pull the old cartridges towards you, and then lift them out.
  4. With the cartridges out of the printer, shut the access door and the control panel.
  5. Power the printer OFF and then back ON.
  6. Check the operator panel to see if the same error has returned or if a new message has appeared.
  7. If the message displayed is 1203, there is something wrong with the printer hardware.
    If the message now displaying is Cartridge Missing, do the following:
    1. Reinstall the cartridges into the printer.
    2. Insert the color cartridge in the left carrier. Insert the black cartridge in the right carrier.
    3. Push back firmly on the cartridges until they snap securely into place.
    4. Close the cartridge access door, and then close the control panel.
    5. If the 1203 message is still present on the operator panel, you need to insert one cartridge at a time to determine which cartridge is producing the failure.
    6. With one cartridge in the carrier, close the access door and control panel.
    7. Check the operator panel. If the 1203 error is displayed, this cartridge is the defective item.
      If the Cartridge Missing message is displayed, the second cartridge is producing the failure.
    8. Please replace the defective cartridge.

"toner empty" problem

The samsung sf 5100 toner cartridge has a .05 Amps fuse in it. This gets blowed when you switch on the machine.This is used to reset the page counter and also to inform the machine that you have inserted a new toner. Now this recycled cartriges will not have this fuse and this is the reason why your machine shows TONER EMTY message! If you dont get the same rating fuse, put any fuse of the same size, insert the toner, close the door and just switch on the power and switch off immediately. Then take out the Toner cartridge and remove the fuse. Now your cartridge is ready for use.

Clear Vertical lines

It sounds like you need a new cartridge. I am not familliare with that product, but I would strongly suspect the drum or toner cartridge. They may be all one.
Often those cartridges are very low on ink and do not display a message to that effect

Check cover/cart

Two possible solutions remove the top cover (Two screws on top after oepening the cartridge door and two push in black nylon screws in either side). and check the activation lever that activates the cover switch is not riding on top of the switch. Second if this happened your toner cartridge make sure this new cartridge is the correct one for the fax and not a HP modified recycled printer cartridge.
