Question about Samsung CLP-510 Laser Printer
Replaced imaging unit but continue to receive intermittent replace messages. Also, just started getting replace toner messages even when the toner cartridges are new. Unable to use printer when these occur.
This morning it first said "replace black toner" even though I had just put a new one in recently. I had another, so I replaced it and then I had a "replace magenta toner". I did and then it said "replce cyan toner". I did and then it said "replace black toner" again. Very frustrating.
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.
