Question about Samsung SF-5100 Plain Paper Laser Fax
I have a samsung sf5100 and it says "toner empty" after I put in a new toner cartridge. I tried a second cartridge and it said the same thing.
The samsung sf 5100 toner cartridge has a .05 Amps fuse in it. This gets blowed when you switch on the machine.This is used to reset the page counter and also to inform the machine that you have inserted a new toner. Now this recycled cartriges will not have this fuse and this is the reason why your machine shows TONER EMTY message! If you dont get the same rating fuse, put any fuse of the same size, insert the toner, close the door and just switch on the power and switch off immediately. Then take out the Toner cartridge and remove the fuse. Now your cartridge is ready for use.

On samsung machines some have a fuse that needs to blow when the cartridge is installed. and some have little connectors at the top where the cartridge fits.
If the cartridge has a fuse on it normally the power board is defective and cannot blow the fuse. suggestion is try a different fuse a weaker one you can obtain from any hardware shop. it must be the same size though. If your machine has the connectors remove cartridge and check that they haven't been bent when you installed a cartridge before. If they have turn machine off and try to straighten them but be careful.
Hope this is some help and please rate me.
