Remanufactured Toner Cartridge Inconsistent Recognition Same Cartridge

I purchased a few remanufactured cartridges BLACK.  When I tried them they gave an error incorrect cartridge.  Then tried them a second or third time and they were accepted by the printer.  I tested them to ensure they worked so I would not have to return them later.  Now it's later and I need them to work, and they say replace BLACK toner cartridge.  But, I know there full, because of the previous test I performed when I first got them.

Samsung use tricky electronics on their carts and machine that keeps track of cartridge ID number prints done/left etc, they make them so the toner cart. will be expensive and difficult to correctly reproduce but there is always a hacker who'll crack them.

Your machine knows when you change a cart it knows if it is real, it has allowances built in that allow a limited amount of prints to be done when it has reached exceeded expected amount of prints from a cart, but unless your machine gets the OK from a samsung toner id tag it will not reset exceeded counter

Sorry but buy a chip if available, or better still use proper stuff on a machine you need.

I'm a teco (and was once a pioneer of remanufacture of carts/inks) and a now great deal of my time is spent fixing machines from remanufactured/imported/recycled/refilled supplies. No Doubt, No Joke.

If you must use dodgy stuff then make sure who ever sells it to you so cheaply will fix your printer and help you when errors occur. Otherwise it will cost you in the end.

Toners and inks are unique, model to model, brand to brand. Quality control and dependability is lost when less than original consumables are used

It is such a economic waste of money to use cheaper carts, they cause problems that make a otherwise happy instument require attention.

People seem to think they are saving money but in the end it always cost them, they all end up paying to have their machine fixed or replaced long before its expected life.

One service call or a faulty set of consumables can cost more than all the money ever "saved"

And if you think you are saving the planet, stop printing!

Cheers Sorry and Goodluck!

What causes streaky copies

A few questions:
- Did this problem just start?

- Was there a paper jam and when the paper was dislodged the next few sheets were streaked? Running a few more pages usually clears this.

- Is this a new toner cartridge? Did you just change the cartridge? Are you low on toner? Try removing the cartridge and gently rocking it back and forth, side to side. This will distribute the toner more evenly.

- Is this a heavier weight paper then previously used? Try going back to the old weight and see if the problem continues.

HP Color Laserjet Cp2025n Printer - driver says it's out of toner and won't print. No true. I put in new toner cartridge last week. How do I get it toreceognize the new toner?

Did you purchase a new OEM HP toner or a refilled or remanufactured toner. It is possible that the chip is bad on the cartridge in which case if it is a true HP cartridge have them replace it. If you purchased 3rd party go after the vendor to replace it.

Just purchased a Zerox XC1255 Copier at an Auction. Replaced the toner cartridge because the light was on. The copies seem to have excessive toner in the background of the copies. I am wondering if I...

Could be a bad drum unit. Is the new toner cartridge a refilled? Remanufactured? or Brand New Xerox brand toner? If it is refilled or remanufactured I would run some copies and give it a chance to clear. Sometimes they end up with too much toner in the Developer mix and can be overtoned which causes a general background over the whole page. They should clear up as you run copies, say within 100 pages. Also try manually lightening the copy with the exposure control on the operation panel. If lightening the copy clears all of the background then you need to have the optics cleaned. There are 4 mirrors under the large original glass that need to be cleaned. If all this fails then you are looking at either drum unit or a defective or out of balance toner/developer cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

New black ink but very poor quality print?

Is this an original DEll toner, or a remanufactured one?
Sometimes a remanufactured cartridge can need a few pages printed before the new toner 'works ' through the internal mechanisms. Not all remaufacturers actually test (all) of their cartridges. The better ones test 100%, to ensure a quality product.

It could be that the wrong toner has been used in the cartridge (not all toner is the same - by a long way).

It could be that the drum has NOT been replaced. These can be light damaged and result in a poor print quality. An original drum is purple in colour. Aftermarket drums are blue/green.

Hp 2605dn Black cartridge is printing 1/8" LEFT of other colors.

That problem is frequently on HP 2600 series.
You must try to change all remanufactured toner cartridges with HP OEM with no exception, the best alignment it is when you change the black cartridge and the printer make a cleaning page process. Cartridge HP OEM should be almoust empty. It Is not necesarry to be a new one. After the alignment process, you can put the remanufacturated cartridges back on.

Is there a override function to keep printing when toner alerts are on?Wondering since black still shows 30%.

These printers will still print when any or all of the toners are LOW, but if any one of them is EMPTY (according to the chip on the toner cartridge) printing stops.

Standard capacity toners ere 2000 page for the colours, and 3000 page for the black, so they can soon be used up.

Much cheaper per page printed, if you use the high capacity cartridges (6000 page for the colours, and 8000 page black).

There are high quality remanufactured cartridges available now, as good as OEM, and typically you'll get a Hi Capacity Remanufactured cartridge for the same sort of price as a Std Capacity OEM cartridge.

As a short term solution at a lower cost than replacement cartridges, you could just replace the cartridge CHIP. The printer would then think the toner was full (there'll likely to still be some toner in it), so you'll be able to print. Don't run the printer like this for ever though, as the toner has some lubricant properties, and with a TRULY EMPTY cartridge, you'll eventually do some damage to the cartridge, and then possibly the transfer belt (and you don't want to be changing that until it's rated 100,000 page life is up.

Recently changed the black toner cartridge in the Dell 3110cn printer. This past week when I print the entire page is being printed with a shade of gray. I think the toner cartridge has leaked toner and...

This could be a drum problem, the drum is part of the toner cartridge in this printer.

If the toner has leaked it will be all over the inside of the printer - you'll see it. I don't think that's the problem.

If the toner cartridge is an original Dell item, then it's likely to be replacable under warranty.

If the cartridge is a remanufactured item, it may be that the wrong toner has been used. Toner is NOT all the same, and this cartridge is one whe the wrong toner really will not work properly for long.

The chances are the changing the toner cartidge will cure the problem, provided you use an original Dell item, or a remanufactured item from a reputable manufacturer.
