Question about Samsung CLP-550 Laser Printer
The printer needs to think it has all 4 toners present, and NOT at the end of their life.
There are two methods of achieving your goal of using this as a mon printer only.
1 - a zero cost option which works on a CLP-510, and may work on CLP-500.
Hold the MENU button down whe you switch the printer on. The printer will then start up in 'UNCHECKED CONSUMABLE' mode. You will have to remember to do this each time you turn the printer on.
2 Just replace the reset fuse modules on the Yelllow, Magenta and Cyan cartridges. Much cheaper than replacing the cartridge.
In both these cases, of course there's no more toner in them. but provided you ONLY print mono this shouldn't be a problem, and there's probably an option in the printer driver to set it for mono anyway (but the printer still needs to 'think' it has usable colurs cartridges in it).
