Re: Printer not recognising cartridges.

CLP-500 and CLP-510 toner cartridges are identical in shape, but the internal microchip and toner sensors are diferent. therefore they are usually mixed up, producing the problem just described. If you check your toners and happen to have the correct ones, then have them replaced by your supplier; or better yet, try another company. Not all remanufacturing companies are able to fully reproduce the algorythms contained in such chips.

Hp Designjet 500 not recognising ink cartridges. the ink carts were nowhere near empty but coming but the printer says replace bought new ones and put them in and the machine is not recognising them...

I've had that problem with unfinished cartridges showing up as empty. I imagine that it could be a bad cartridge as well but I hear and feel the ink when I shake the cartridge. Therefore the ink is there. I also have a problem with some inks. I find the HP inks work perfectly whereas other manufacturers' inks work on and off. I need a solution as well. Right now I have full cartridges that are not picked up by the Designjet sensor. Any idea?

Dell 942 AIO printer won't recognise black cartridge:

I think you purchased a black cartridge with bad electronics. Basically your cartridge can't communicate with your printer and you should exchange it for a new one. There is no way to "fool" your printer into accepting refills with bad electronics. What you can do is when you get the message that you aren't using genuine cartridges and it won't be able to estimate ink levels is to check the box indicating to ignore the ink levels.

Instead of changing black toner printer (samsung clp-510)is giving error INVALID TONER BLACK

This can happen if you install a CLP-500 cartridge OR a Xerox Phaser 6100 cartridge.

Physically they are the same, but the 'chip' is different.

In the case of the Xerox, it is the programing of the chip that 'tells' the printer its a Xerox cartridge, and the printer won't accept this as valid.

If it's a CLP-500, the three contacts on the side of the cartridge have a resistor (for the capacity of the cartridge) and a falmeproof fusible resistor which resets tha page counter (for that cartridge) when a new cartridge is installed.

Epson DX7450 won't recognise compatible cartridges

This is a common problem and is caused by faulty or missing chips onthe compatible cartridges. You will need to get them replaced otherwise the printer will not operate. Contact the vendor where you bought them from and ask for repalcements or a refund.

Cartridge not detected

if the printer says toner not installed, then you have a dirty chip reader, remove pc drum and all toners, use pressure air to clean chip reader under the toner rack at right side and reinstall everything.

Samsung clp-510n printer

1 Could be toner on the contacts (inside the printer) that mate with the contacts on the cartrdige.

2 Are you sure they are 510 toners and not 500 ones ?? 510 toners have a chip that identifies the cartridge (Colour, Capacity) and maintains a count of the pages printed.
500 toners have a reset fuse that resets the toner counter in the printer, and a resitor that identifies the capacity

3 Are they new cartridges, remanufactured, or 'home refiled'.
if either of the later two, were the chips replaced ? - if not the cartridge still thinks it has printed its full life of pages.

Canon MP510 wont recognise cartridges

Using replacement cartridges that come without a chip seems to be the problem I had with the Canon Pixma 510 printer they are cheaper
but if they do not show the ink levels then its inconvienent so I have but Canon products with a chip and they work perfectly.

Samsung ClP-500 install cyann toner

Please take your unit to an Authorized Service Center ASAP. Do not tur on the unit again. That burned fuse means that the temperature sensors inside the printer (thermistors) are not working correctly and the unit is overheating.

Printer not recognizing toner

Too much people confuse CLP-500 cartridges with CLP-510. Although they look the same and even fit inside the printer, the internal chip is not the same.
