Question about Samsung CLP-500 Laser Printer
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!
