Question about Samsung CLP-510 Laser Printer
I know you can reset the cartridges. someone told me to use tape across the chips on each cartridge but this hasn't worked for me!
does anyone have any idea hos to get round this problem without buying reset chips and having to solder. I am a lady and no good with soldering irons!
You simply can't reset the chips by using tape on the contacts.
The 'chip' on the CLP-510 cartridges has a counter that is updated by the printer when it is used (even if it is only a single dot of that colour).
The ONLY way to reset these chips is to use s special device that writes data to the chip placing a ZERO into the page counter. Or to solder in a new chip. FACT.
The 'chip' also identifies the colour of the cartridge and its capacity. If you cover the contacts the printer doesn't know a cartridge is there, can't tell what colour it is, and can't tell what the capacity and current page count are.
If you use (say) a Cyan chip in a Black cartridge, it just won't work.
Chip resetter boxes are not cheap, being around £150, as they are intended for the cartridge re-manufacturers.
If you want to be able to re-fill your Samsung CLP-510 cartridges yourself, you'll just have to learn to use a soldring iron.

Put tape across the 3 contacts on the side of the cartridge, reinsert cart into printer, restart printer, holding down the Menu key until a message "Uncheck consumables" appears, then let Menu key up.

If you own a Raspberry Pi, then you can also use this open source tool to reset the toner cartridge:

I'm no expert, just reporting what i've done: my method above about the tape does work; however, if you do it with ALL 4 carts, it will result in the endless "processing" message and no printing. So yu will need to get a chip resetter (by buying a set of refills that includes one) or use the Dunfield method (Google it) which is fiddly, but did work for me.

Just go to Ebay and buy the chip resetter, works great every time.
