I have had this problem come up a lot, even using genuine parts. All I do is clean the contacts with white spirit (dry cleaning fluid) NOT METHOLATED SPIRITS OR TURPENTINE. It should then resolve itself.

What is invalid toner ,is it problem in printer or toner

this error is shown when the installed cartridge is either for the wrong model of printer, either a re-filled cartridge for the right model, but that hasn't been reset properly. if the cartridge is right for that model of printer and you bought it from a legal supplier, you can return it together with the receipt and claim a new one.

Instead of changing black toner printer (samsung clp-510)is giving error INVALID TONER BLACK

This can happen if you install a CLP-500 cartridge OR a Xerox Phaser 6100 cartridge.

Physically they are the same, but the 'chip' is different.

In the case of the Xerox, it is the programing of the chip that 'tells' the printer its a Xerox cartridge, and the printer won't accept this as valid.

If it's a CLP-500, the three contacts on the side of the cartridge have a resistor (for the capacity of the cartridge) and a falmeproof fusible resistor which resets tha page counter (for that cartridge) when a new cartridge is installed.

Samsung ClP-500 install cyann toner

Please take your unit to an Authorized Service Center ASAP. Do not tur on the unit again. That burned fuse means that the temperature sensors inside the printer (thermistors) are not working correctly and the unit is overheating.

Printer not recognising cartridges.

CLP-500 and CLP-510 toner cartridges are identical in shape, but the internal microchip and toner sensors are diferent. therefore they are usually mixed up, producing the problem just described. If you check your toners and happen to have the correct ones, then have them replaced by your supplier; or better yet, try another company. Not all remanufacturing companies are able to fully reproduce the algorythms contained in such chips.
