Checking the toner cartridge
Image formation defects are many times the result of problems in the toner cartridge. If there is any doubt, always replace the toner cartridge before troubleshooting image defects.
Use the following checklist to make sure that the toner cartridge is still operable.
" Make sure that the toner cartridge is seated properly.
" Inspect the toner cartridge for toner level.
" Check the expiration date stamped on the toner cartridge box.
" Check the toner cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled.
" Inspect the toner cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals.
" Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge to see if it has been damaged or scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting
and image defects.
" Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the cartridge has been overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.
Note A toner cartridge weighs approximately 863 grams (30.5 oz) when it is full, approximately 766 grams (27.0 oz) when it first fades, and approximately 742 grams (26.2 oz) when it is empty.

To redistribute toner in the cartridge

Before installing a new cartridge or when toner begins to run low, redistribute the toner by rotating the cartridge back and forth five or six times.

How to Replace the Toner Cartridge:
Replace the toner cartridge with a new one using the following procedure. When replacing the toner cartridge, clean the fixing unit using the Printer Status Window. For details on cleaning the fixing unit, see "How to clean the fixing unit" in Related Information at the end of this page.
Important: Do not touch the high-voltage contacts (A) inside the top cover, as this may result in damage to the printer.
80005964en_i05rt03024_01.gif
1. Open the top cover. Holding the top cover by the cutout edge, open the cover until it stops.
80005964en_i05rt03024_02.gif
2. Raise the toner cartridge in the direction of the arrow (1), then remove it (2).
80005964en_i05rt03024_03.gif
3. Take a new toner cartridge out of the protective bag. As there is a notch cut near the arrow, you can tear open the bag by hand. However, if you are unable to tear open the bag by hand, use scissors to open the protective bag so as not to damage the toner cartridge.
80005964en_i05rt02032_03.gif
Important: a. Keep the protective bag for the toner cartridge. It will be required after taking out the toner cartridge for printer maintenance. b. Print quality may deteriorate if you touch or damage the drum inside the drum cartridge. Be sure not to touch or open the drum protective shutter (A). Be careful not to hold or touch sensitive areas that are not specified in this procedure. This may result in damage to the cartridge.
80005964en_i05rt02029_03.gif
c. Do not expose the toner cartridge to direct sunlight or strong light.
80005964en_i05rt02032_04.gif
4. Hold the toner cartridge as shown in the figure, shake it gently 5 or 6 times to evenly distribute the toner inside the cartridge.
80005964en_i05rt02032_05.gif
Important: a. If the toner is not distributed evenly, this may result in deterioration in print quality. Be sure to perform this step properly. b. Be sure to shake the toner cartridge gently. If you do not shake the cartridge gently, toner may spill out. c. Be careful not to hold or touch sensitive areas such as the electrical contacts (A) or sensor, as this may result in damage to the toner cartridge or printer.
80005964en_i05rt02032_06.gif
5. Place the toner cartridge on a flat surface, then pull out the sealing tape (approx. 50 cm long) gently while supporting the toner cartridge. Pull out the sealing tape straight in the direction of the arrow.
80005964en_i05rt02029_01.gif
Important: a. Do not pull the sealing tape diagonally, upwards, or downwards. If the tape is severed, it may become difficult to pull out completely.
80005964en_i05rt02029_02.gif
b. Pull out the sealing tape completely from the toner cartridge. If any tape remains in the toner cartridge, this may result in poor print quality. c. When pulling out the sealing tape, be careful not to hold the drum protective shutter (A) with your hands.
80005964en_i05rt02029_03.gif
d. After removing the protective bag, install the toner cartridge in the printer as soon as possible. e. Dispose of the sealing tape according to local regulations.

AFTER RELOADING TONER INTO CARTRIDGES, THEN RED LIGHT BLINKING AND IT WILL NOT PRINT. WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX THE PROBLEM?


Did you change the chips in the cartridges after you filled them with toner? Inside the cartridges are chips that the printer keep track of the number of images that are printed. After so many pages, the printer marks the cartridge as empty, even if you fill it with toner. When the cartridge is changed the printer reads the serial number on the cartridge and keeps a log it its memory. If the chip is replaced, then the printer does not recognize it and thinks it is a new cartridge.

Hope this helps.

Samsung clp-315 colour fading


This may be a case of running out of toner, even if the software indicates that toner is still there. If you have a gram scale, try weighing the cartridges. For some reason I have not got consistent weights of empty cartridges, even with all residual toner shaken out, but my empty cartridge weights for color cartridges have been 457 grams, 462 grams and 475 grams. If the toner has been used up, the answer is to refill or replace the toner cartridges. Refilling requires (a) replacement chip(s). See other postings about toner refills for this model here on FixYa.

The error is "toner cartridge error" you could try cleaning the contacts inside the printer (with the power off, of course). If that doesn't work you will need to try another cartridge.

Printed document has light spot running down entire page


Hi, On another Samsung model (ML1610), I tried shaking the toner cartridge left & right (presumably to evenly distribute the powder inside). On another instance, it was caused by a replacement cartridge (not original) and then again was when I tried simply refilling the old original cartridge. In all cases, the drum (which was inside the cartridge assembly)had to be cleaned, or the cartridge replaced (with original). The most tedious was when I had to open the cartridge and remove the replacement toner that has formed into solid lumps. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
