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.

Tips for a great answer:
1.Log on to your computer and print a test page to the printer. Click on the "Start" button, choose "Control Panel" and then "Printers and Faxes." Right-click on the laser printer, choose "Properties" from the drop-down menu and click the "Print test page" box.
3.Open the printer cover and carefully pull out the toner cartridge. Set the cartridge aside while you open the box containing the new toner. Pull the new toner out but do not yet remove any of the packaging materials. Compare the weight of the new toner with the old one. If the old toner is very light, it is nearly empty and should be replaced.
