Re: replacing toner

Call Dell Tech Support. They can walk you through a "hard" reset that includes turning the printer on and off while having the tray open, holding down certain buttons, etc. If error returns, it could be that your fax module is in need of repair or something has broken on the toner cartridge. If this only happens when receiving faxes, I would suspect the former.

Display fax gives a warning "received in memory" we also have a warning "prepare black toner" We can not print the fax! What can we do?

Generally the "received in memory" message is a result of the machines inability to print. I.E. It received a fax, attempted to print it, failed, and then stored it in memory to print once the issue has been corrected.

The Prepare Black Toner error is likely directly related. If the toner cartridge is empty, inserted incorrectly, or damaged it could be causing this error. Try reseating the cartridge by removing and reinserting. If that doesn't clear the error try replacing it with a new Canon branded cartridge.

As soon as you correct the printing issue the stored faxes will print.

The printer samsung scx-452f cannot print out fax in,it shown on screen as memory receive

you have received faxes, but they can't be print until you replace toner because probably you have TONER EMPTY message also on the display.
You can buy only fuse for toner cartridge (25mm, 250V/ 0,063A or 0,1A and maximum 0,125A)
When you pull out toner cartridge you will see the glass fuse on the front left side of the cartridge.
The new fuse will reset toner empty condition

In samsung scx 4x21 all-in-one, fax received but not printing. "memory received" we get in display panel.

your toner is empty refill or replace it. You can continue printing when the toner is empty but the faxes recieved will not be printed till the toner empty light is reset.

It sounds like your toner has ran out, so you cant print any more faxes out, the memory saving the unprinted faxes has filled up and cant save any more messages.
Replace the toner and let the machine print out the saved faxes. You should then be back to normal

Toner Empty

it it was receiving fax before replacing the toner then it still should be able to receive so just turn your printer once off and turn it back then see what happens.
if problem still remains then please post back.

I'm surprised you're trying to make a buck off this kind of stuff. Instead of being part of the solution you're part of the problem. Easy one .....get the service manual. Mfg has rigged it so you must buy New cartridge unless you can discover the key to reset counters.
