The past user (my dad) has printed less than 400 pages and had to replace 2 cartridges. The lights for the other 2 cartridges are now lit and he's frustrated. The printer claims 1246 pages have been printed!
The Supply Status Page info for the last inputted Cyan cartridge says 99% capacity & 297 pages remaining. Only 4 pages have been printed using the new HP Q3961A cartridge. It should print 4,000 pages at 5% coverage.
The new Blace cartridge Q3960A has printed less than 100 text pages and shows 69% remaining, 1191 pages printed w/ this supply and 2650 pages remaining. It's supposed to print 5,000 pages at 5% coverage.

Re: Page count unreasonable
Re you using genuine HP NEW cartridges? If not, you must make sure that whoever has re manufactured the ones you are using has replaced the chip on the cartridge. This tells the machine how many copies are on the cartridge.

The instructions for getting the page count for the C210SF should be the same as for the C231SF:
- Press User Tools. - Scroll down until you see Reports Print. - Press OK. - Scroll down to either Configuration Page (2 pages long, prints in black and white) or Maintenance Page (1 page long, prints in color). - Press OK.
Both the configuration page and the maintenance page will show the page counts. For page count instructions on other models of copiers or printers, check out ConfigPages.Blogspot.com.
I have been told that HP printers have a built in program that will make printer fail after a set number of pages have printed, and if the NV Ram is reset this will reset the page count, page count resides in the transparent, image or drum kit. I dont know how to find this or reset page count but if anyone knows i would like to do this on my hp printer please any help.
Hi, The problem could be caused due to blocked printer nozzles or bad print head. Try cleaning the ink nozzles first. 1 Press Setup. 2 Press 5, then press 1. This selects Tools and then selects Clean Print Cartridge. A page of patterns is printed. The print cartridges are cleaned. Recycle or discard the page. If copy or print quality still seem poor after you clean the print cartridges, replace the print cartridge that is affected. For information on replacing print cartridges, see replace the print cartridges.

This is a page count function so that the PC drum is replaced at an elapsed count of pages printed. If you have changed the PC drum and the message hasnt cleared - Go into config menu (Hold down the tick & back buttons on power up) Select ''Reset PC Count'. When this is reset the replace PC message will not appear.
If you wanto refill the cratridge,even after refill you'll need to reset your printer page count to 0.Download the firmware from here run the software and this will reset the page count to 0. Samsung printers generally do not support a refilled cartridge and thus the red light.But resetting the page count to 0 makes the printer detect the cartridge as an intoductory one.
