Question about Samsung ML-2851ND Laser Printer
The IP address (192.168.1.104) of my Samsung ML-2851ND printer on the network has changed since installing it yesterday, so now it won't print. Nothing was done to the system configuration to change it. So why did the IP address change? And how can I manually reconfigure the printer to the new IP address(192.168.1.106) to get it printing again?
The SetIP utility does not do what you are suggesting.
1. If you want to manually configure the IP address on the actual printer use the SetIp utility to do that.
2. If you want to configure your computer to talk to the printer which is now found at a new address you need to do a "repair" install of the printer and the drivers will find the printer at the new IP address again.
Yes, it seems crazy but for some reason you can't "reset" the drivers to use a new IP address.

You have to use the utility call SetIP that comes with the printer. Check the CDs. It is easy to use.

The surface (drum part) of the toner cartridge inside the machine has probably been scratched.
Remove the toner cartridge and install a new one.
