Question about Samsung ML-2510 Laser Printer
After replacing black toner with new cartridge, I continue to receive Toner Life End Black message
The red light blinks and error page declares toner low. replaced toner cartridge with official Samsung replacement ML-1610D2/ELS (ie an OEM cartridge). Error light still blinks and error page still reports low toner. I have removed and re seated the cartridge (and shaken it too as per instructions).
Any help would be great. Thanks in advance
Saw this on another site, replace the fuse on the side of the cartridge and the light goes away. I took the fuse out just to see if it would work without it and it does...it still prints and the light still blinks. I'm on a new cartridge, but no way I've printed 3000 pages already. I'm going to replace the fuse and see what happens.

Oooops - missed that bit. It prints perfectly from PC or its own error page. The printed error page declares 'low toner'. It is about a year old (Feb 2007). This is its first toner replacement. I am unaware of the problem occuring prior to the first toner cartridge running low. I have cleaned the electrical connection strips on the side of the cartridge just in case. (it was in a sealed black bag in a sealed samsung box with the protective paper insert correctly installed - but i did it anyway). I have also slowly rolled the cartridge in several axis to ensure the ink dust is distributed evenly inside the cartridge.
All the door flaps close and lock ok.
The paper is grabbed perfectly.
There are no streaks of print.
The error report sheet correctly increments the OPC count and the pixel count - but neither starts from 0 with the new cartridge.
My belief is that the cartridge's onboard EEPROM returns a value that is over the threshold that blinks RED LED. I just hope that there is not another threshold that tells the printer not to continue printing.
The time you and I have spent thinking about this is probably worth more than a replacement printer, but I don't want to throw away an otherwise perfectly good printer.
Thanks again for your assistance Nicolomd.
