There is a possibility of toner on the contacts INSIDE the printer, that align with the set of three contacts on the cartridge - clean off. If this is the cause, thats the cure.

This 'full' toner.

Is it ;

a ) Re-filled by yourself (and has not had the chip replaced or re-set ?, that would cause your problem.

b) If it is a NEW genuine SAMSUNG item, it is faulty (or the printer is!)

c) If it is a 'remanufactured' (most of which are just filled up with toner, without proper dismantling and cleaning, and most are NOT tested. - then the chip has not ben replaced/reset, or is faulty (or the printer is!).

Waste tonner tank

The waste toner container is inside the front cover at the bottom right. If you work for a business you should purchase a new one. If not you may be able to empty it into a another container and seal it before putting into the bin.

yes refilling will solve the problem.but you have to change the green colour small chip on the side of the toner to make it work,as the new chip will be detected as new toner in the printer.

Toner and Imaging Unit issues

If this IS a CLP-510, first make an information confirmation print.
Press MENU, then press ENTER, and ENTER again.

Look at the counter for the imaging unit, is it a low count confirming that you have indeed replaced it ?
If not you will need to reset the counter.

Check the counters for the toner cartridges, and check the capacity of the cartridge. On a CLP-510 the image counter for the toner is held on the chip on the cartridge (which also identifies the capacity of the cartridge).

There have been some faulty (oiginal Samsung chips), and of course re-manufactured cartridge chips could fail (many re-manufacturers don' test their cartridges before dispatch, they don't have the facility to do so without starting the count on the chip (or 'bowing' the reset fuse on a CLP-500 cartridge). VERY few re-manufacturers can test these cartridges without starting the count.

Sometimes the 'replace xxxxx toner' messages are caused by toner on the three contacts on the side of the cartridge, or their mating contacts inside the printer. Rarely, this can be caused by a faulty circuit board.

1 Could be toner on the contacts (inside the printer) that mate with the contacts on the cartrdige.

2 Are you sure they are 510 toners and not 500 ones ?? 510 toners have a chip that identifies the cartridge (Colour, Capacity) and maintains a count of the pages printed.
500 toners have a reset fuse that resets the toner counter in the printer, and a resitor that identifies the capacity

3 Are they new cartridges, remanufactured, or 'home refiled'.
if either of the later two, were the chips replaced ? - if not the cartridge still thinks it has printed its full life of pages.
