[toner empty].I know is something to be reset but I don't how to enter service mode ,or how to repair this.
I can print , copy ,scan ,send fax but iI can't receive any fax.
Please help me and thank you in advance.
This cartridge needs a replacement chip when you refill. The company that sold you the toner should have included it with the toner. I would check with them first. Perhaps they forgot to include the chip.

Thank you very much rob72 and to this great site.
I use a fuse of 100ma and it works.

Also, there are about 2-3 cycles in each toner cart before bigger things start to happen like toner leakage, or streaking on the drum, etc. When that happens, I would be happy to buy the empties or to remanufacture them for you. :-) PCRMike

It clips in the "nose" of the cartridge (the side AWAY from the handle) and is the same rating as the one that is in it. The rating slips my mind now, I just tell my girl to order them. :-) PCRMike

Thank you to pcrmike & rob72 for the information. I have experienced the same problem, but with a brand new machine and cartridge. Had the machine for about a week, ~200 copies, low toner message. Another ~200 copies toner empty message. Kept printing etc. but received faxes to memory only, would not print them. For my enlightenment, can anyone tell me why this would happen with a new cartridge?
by physiofish on Nov 22, 2005 at 8:55pm Add comment
Yes, because it has a toner sensing bar in the cartridge that detects when the toner is low. If the toner is mostly off to one side, part of the bar becomes bare, which allows the machine to detect a "toner low" situation. :-) PCRMike

Hi Guys,

I have a Samsung SCX 4216 and the fuse has blown. I want to buy a replacementfuse. Do I buy a 63ma or 100ma ? Does it matter ?

Many thanks

No, it is not matter. You can use any of them. - Anonymous
What if I don't have a fuse handy. Can't I just short it out/bypass with a small wire?

Just tried that and it still says "Toner Empty"! Do you know how this mechanism work? Does it sense the toner level and if it's below a certain level it blows the fuse?

rob72, could you explain in detail where can I get reset fuse. 63ma, and how to perform reset operation on a chip? I'd really appreciate that.

I have recharged SCX-4200 and that sucker stopped printing telling me that toner empty when it is not. Sanmsung wants us to buy $100 toner on each recharge and I just had tough conversation with an a$$hole from Samsung customer care.

I'll just feel good if I can override this issue with samsung printer

Thanks beforehand,
Irakli

I have a scx4521f. I have searched this cartridge fully and cannot find this fuse. Can anyone tell me exactly where to look.

Thanks in advance

If you have a 4200, it has a chip that has to be replaced. Diplomat, if you have a 4521, with the handle like you put the cartridge in, it will be at the left side, farthest from you, you will see a clip. The starter does not have a fuse, nor does it have much toner. If you like, you can email me and I may have a fuse I can send you. :-)PCRMike

It is in fact the starter toner (4521). Unfortunately it did not live up to expectation. Got way less than the 1000 sheets it was supposed to have printed. email is [email protected] - Anonymous
Check your email. :-) PCRMike

From Samsung site:

1. Press MENU # 1 9 3 4 in sequence rapidly. The LCD panel should now display TECH.
2. Press MENU, and then press ENTER. The LCD panel will display Tech Mode.
3. Press the left arrow (<) button once. The operator panel will display NEW CARTRIDGE.
4. Press ENTER. The operator panel will display [YES].
5. Press ENTER. The toner warning message should be gone.
6. To exit TECH MODE, press MENU # 1 9 3 4 in rapid succession, as if you were dialing a phone number. The operator panel should no longer display TECH.

If problem persists, there may actually be a problem with either the toner cartridge or the SCX-4216F.

You refilled, but did you replace the little glass fuse on the cartridge? It must be replaced with one of a no more than 300mA @250V to reset the counter in the machine. :-)PCRMike
by pcrmike on Jul 26, 2007 at 6:07am Add comment
actually, I think the 4521 is the same as the 1610/2010 except for the fuse, am I right?

And a tiny little groove inthe top cover. You can take a stubby phillips screwdriver and remove the tiny metal "L" in the inside roof of the machine. It wil allow interchangeability between the carts. :-)PCRMike

ozzysteev you're right - the drum is gone, replace it and a cleaning blade.

pkasad you need:
1. Programmer device that works via serial interface (COM).
2. Install "PonyProg"
3. Flash on chip F\\W *.e2p file

Hello,

My printer shows "no cartridge" when i power on the machine. It happened when installing a new toner inside, but the toner is not original. OK I went to shop and bought original samsung toner, but the problem persist. Still it gives me "no cartridge" error. But the light goes green. The error appears just in PC. And no papers are printer or copied. can anyone help me with this problem?

1. I keep getting paper jams and the printer makes clackety noises when it tries to pick up the paper to print. Can anyone suggest what the problem may be?

2. I would like to know how to reinstall the software so that I can use my SCX4216F as a scanner and fax. I have lost all the documentation and the CD-ROM when I move houses.

I have a Samsung SCX4216F It appears the scanning function is not working. Light is not coming on.

I can printing document from PC is not a problem, just the copy/scan function.

I've been quoted more than I paid for it to have it fixed?!? and was wondering if anyone knows how easy it is to replace this part. I have been told that the fuse itself cannot be replaced and the whole upper section of the printer would need to be.

This advice has come over the phone and I would like to verify if that is in fact the case.

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Hi,
My Samsung scx 4200 printer took at one time several pages at once and since then has been jamming every paper it prints.
The paper is being pulled up for printing but stops half way and wont come out.
I tried cleaning whatever I could reach, and checked for any stuck paper, but could not find anything and problem still occurs.

Can anyone help with an explanation what could have gone wrong and if there's a way to fix it on my own?

Thanks so much in advance!

I have a Samsung SCX4216F It appears the scanning function is not working. Light is not turn on.Blank white paper as a result.
I wonder if we could somehow mod the scanner lamp since it is nearly impossible for us to buy the scanner lamp nowdays,even samsung support say so.
The function of this lamp is similiar to a torchlight.It will brighten the document that we want to scan during the scanning proces.What if somehow we manage to use other device other than the lamp it self like superbright LED(20 watts) or another lamp scanner from dead scanner macine.I think it will work.Anyone care to comment....

I accidentally plugged my U.S. Samsung scx-4216 directly into 240 volt U.K.and (naturally) Blew either the printer fuse or maybe the circuit board. Can it be repaired at a reasonable cost ? .It was a super printer.
