How to use Australian toner in a UK printer

Hi, I've recently returned home to Australia from the UK and when I purchased replacement toner for my UK printer it tells me that it is not compatible. I now understand the region specifics of toner! My question is as follows, are there any workarounds that will mean that I can use the printer here or am I best to throw it out and buy an Aussie equivalent. Please bear in mind that this was over 300 pounds when new less than 2 years ago and is a good multi-function. I'm reasonably technical and open to all suggestions. cheers.

SOURCE: I have a Samsung CLX-3160FN multi-function color

If the black toner prints like the image below with alternating bands of light and dark printing, the problem lies with your imaging unit.13911cf.jpg Specifically the developer blades in the imaging unit has toner build up on the blades. The more you use a particular color, the more it builds up to the point that it exhibits itself as faded images on the paper.

It can be fixed by replacing the imaging unit for $100+, but it will reappear again after sometime. Or you can fix the problem yourself and save yourself $100. You will need to open the imaging unit and clean the blades. I have a description on how to do this in my tips section. Or your can click on this link, Hopes this helps you.

There might be a problem with the paper sensor. Check the rear portion of the printer where you get the paper out try to open the back of the printer and check if the sensor is working well. Usually it will be stuck and need to be released. And if you can just give a little bang on the back of the printer this may cause the sensor to trip and start working.

I have Samsung CLX 3175 laser printer. Am getting invalid toner message although parts are genuine

Well, eventually I worked it out: The "contacts" are four square fields to the left on on the backside of the cartridge. And it works instantly. (I read somewhere that it needs to be fully transparent tape. The 'blurry' tape leads electricity and doesn't work.)

Can this computer be used in Australia without being damaged?

Most laptop can be used in any country.
Check the laptop's power adapter mains input voltage, it is on a label on the bottom of the adapter.
If the input voltage is 100 to 240 volts then it will work in Australia, you may need an mains adapter to connect to Australian 3 pin mains power point or purchase the mains cable that fits the Australian 3 pin mains power point.

Cartridge is not intended for use in this printer

Under the setup menu, then under preferences, there's an item where you can change the language & country. I don't know if that will have any affect on the cartridge selection though.
