Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by jack71 (5/15/10 12:26 AM) reply+2 + / -
Can anyone tell me how to reset Samsung ML-1660 cartridge. After refilling it still says "toner empty"!


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by ianm0 (edited 5/31/10 7:45 AM) reply + / -
I refilled toner and still not printing. So I kept turning printer on and off many times (over a day or so), tried printing out a test page (sometimes worked, sometimes not). One time, I got a "Supplies Information Report" instead of the test page with a black header. Never saw that again.

Red light still blinking. Out of desperation, I did a print request from Word. It worked! Never know why. Toner remaining figure dropped from 3% to 1% now. Don't know what will happen after a few more pages.

I still have the toner low indicator on my PC.

BTW, have you solved your problem yet?

Describe your reset samsung ml 1660 Problem


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by ianm0 (6/13/10 1:59 AM) reply + / -
Bought printer with starter cartridge. Before reaching page limit of cartridge(think it's 700 pages based on 5% coverage), I got the toner "depleted" message and printer stopped working. Got it to print again after refill (for details, see my earlier post).

I know that by the time I reach the page limit, it definitely will not work. For other Samsung printers, there are ways (such as replacing a fuse or a reset chip) to reset the page limit and one can continue to use the cartridge after refilling the toner.

ML-1660 or ML-1665 is relatively new on the market and can't find ways to reset the page limit yet. I think some intelligent beautiful minds would have come up with a way of doing it. That's the purpose of the post.

I followed the instruction:
"Our solution for resetting Samsung ML 1660 is to isolate the Vcc contact of the chip on the cartridge. "
by taping up the Vcc metal tab on the cartridge and printed a test page. Page count not reset to zero, just keep counting. Also power light remained red and blinking - but printer worked ok with printing.

Printer purchased in 2010-05 with OS Version: V1.01.00.30 01-12-2010. Perhaps your solution doesn't work on latest printers, does it?


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by arbikas (7/19/10 1:01 AM) reply + / -
No solution in fact. Isolating the Vcc does not work - the machine keeps printing, but the counter keeps counting. We still have not reached the end of the counter, that's why we were misled with this solution. Excuse us...
AT88 chip in the cartridge.
No firmware upgrade available for now...
If we find some solution will post again.

The instructions are in Spanish and Google Translate only does a fair job. Any good Samaritan who is fluent in Spanish?

Abikas, did you try that firmware update with success?





Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by arbikas (10/5/10 12:08 AM) reply + / -
Up to this moment we have not tried it, because of bad luck in trying 1 russian version of a firmware, and 1 bad version of romanian firmware. :(
As we have a contact with groups developing firmware in Russia and Ukraine, who products we have tested and are ok, all, we are now waiting for their version of this firmware.
I posted this link as useful, as there is described the whole refilling procedure, with pictures.
You do not need the text describing opening of the cartridge - the photos are very good and descriptive... You only need the link with their version of the firmware: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=C2HCHIYA
I am not too aware of spanish too, to translate...

Hello.
Proven solution for ML-1660/1665. It has been verified. Included is the original firmware to return for warranty.

Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by Grubber (10/6/10 4:18 AM) reply + / -
Yes, it's firmware from Russia for ML-1660/1665 version V1.01.00.30.
The program is paid and intended for the service centres. All verified, worked ;)


Re: Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by ianm0 (10/6/10 5:53 PM) reply + / -
This thread has developed into a long one and may spawn ambiguity in posted replies.

For instance: "The program is paid and intended for the service centres. All verified, worked". Could Grubber or other(s) clarify that "it worked" means the counter is reset and the cartridge is ready for repeated refills until other physical failures.

And what guarantee you expect? I assert, that if to fill in an insertion available a fix f/w in printer ML-1660/1665 with the version 1.01.00.30 further the cartridge does not react to the chip and it is possible to fill infinitely. Counter of print page reset to zero after every on/off printer :)

13. Remove the print cartridge. Seal with tape or remove the chip. Insert the cartridge into place.

Revised unit behaves as follows:

Cartridge with the chip is handled appropriately. Prints until the counter is not empty.
Over the counter - the device is locked.
Cartridge without chip or a sealed chip is treated as a full cartridge. Counter clicks, percent decrease, while the unit does not switch off. If the machine off and on again it starts all over again. Again a full report on the cartridge and counter work.
In the last (Laid here) version fixing boot made in normal mode. Enabled device, pootmenyali installation of new devices and loaded the firmware. Nevertheless, the instruction to stop jammed not hurt. For emergency lifting apparatus. If something went wrong. (The light blinks)

Thanks YURDASAL. It worked!
I just patched a new firmware and after printer restarted I turned off the printer and took off the cartridge and put a tape on the chip. Then I put cartridge back and turned on the printer.

Hi 123huif

You said the firmware upgrade worked. Are you using a starter cartridge or a Samsung replacement cartridge?

Hi, I bought the ML-1665 and I tried to run the reset firmware.
Before doing it I had the OS version 1.2.00.30 and now after printing the Report page I see 1.02.0030f.

How can I make sure it works ? my toner is not empty I was just trying to see if it was working before ordering a refill kit.

when I remove my toner and I print the report I see tha the page counts under Toner Information is back to 0. Does it mean that the reset i working ? I`m asking because I heard someone saying that it doesn't work with OS 1.02.xx

Thank you !

you should put a new (other - not blocked) cartrige. When do you have your OS version use a file 1660.exe. I think this file is not recomended for 1665.

Tried with this firmware. Flashing went fine. After isolating the chip and putting toner back into printer, instead of LED glowing green it glows red now. Can't print like that. Removing isolation from chip, now LED glows green again. Printed test page, nothing changed, page count is still the same. So in my case this firmware didn't help.

Well I've tried so many methods for v34 but the page count is still the same. I'm using a starter cartridge and the test page indicated a capacity of 700pages. However, I'm now printing over 800+ pages and it's still printing. The led is a flashing red though.
I always thought it stops printing once you're at 700, can anybody confirm?

Hmm im confused now...If u isolate the chip then printer doesn't register it. If u remove the chip from toner then printer doesn't register it as well. So isn't isolating the chip better solution since u dont need to open toner to remove the chip? Correct me if im wrong.


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by assasin (3/10/11 11:58 PM) reply + / -
mr pista18......let me tell u wt the chip is for.the chip is not at all related wid printing purposes.it just keep the record for toner capacity and page linit left.so wen u remove the chip,the printer still works.at the smart panel will show u tht the printer capacity is full even if ur toner is empty.thts the only drawback of removing chip.since ml1660 is new in the market so its chips r nt available which r used after refilling ur toner.

Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by infoguy (3/13/11 12:56 PM) reply + / -

Okay, the horsey doo-doo is getting pretty high around here so I just gotta throw in my two cents worth. :)


Here are the facts about Samsung ML-1660/1665, SCX-3200/3217 printers from a professional!

1) These printers ship with a starter cartridge (MLT-D104X) that Samsung estimates will yield 700 pages.

2) Samsung estimates that their store bought replacement cartridges (MLT-D104S) will yield 1500 pages.

3) Samsung's page yield (cartridge life) estimates are based on a standard industry test.

Here is Samsung's official statement:
Estimated cartridge life means the expected or estimated toner cartridge life, which indicates the average capacity of print-outs and is designed pursuant to ISO/IEC 19752. The number of pages may be affected by operating environment, printing interval, media type, and media size. Some amount of toner may remain in the cartridge even when red LED turned on and the printer stops printing.

4) Both the starter and replacement cartridges have microchips on them.

5) The microchip performs three major duties; A) cartridge type identification (104X or 104S), B) manufacturer identification (Samsung or non-Samsung), C) Stores in it's memory the number of pages printed on that particular cartridge.

6) If the microchip is prevented from communicating with the printer by means of tape over the contacts or by removing the chip, the printer's status light will turn red and the printer will not print.

7) The only exception to #6 is if reset software (aka a firmware fix) has been installed in the printer. In that case, the chip is no longer needed and must be taped or removed so it does not interfere with the new firmware in the printer. With the reset software (new firmware) installed in the printer, the toner page counter (CRUM) will reset automatically every time the printer is turned off. Note: We give the reset software free to our toner customers at tonerkits.com. However, the printer's OS (firmware) version must be compatible with our software version or printer will not reset.

8) If reset software is not installed in the printer, the printer's status light will eventually go from green to flashing red, then to solid red as you print more and more pages. When the light turns solid red (or shortly afterward), the printer will stop printing until you A) install reset software in the printer, B) install a reset chip on the toner cartridge, C) replace the cartridge with a new one.

9) You can print a status/configuration report by pressing the "print screen" button on the printer for 5 seconds then releasing. Do this twice in a row and you should get all information about the printer. Note: May not work if your printer's status light is already solid red.

10) The printer's OS (firmware) version and date are on this report.
Under "Supplies Information" on the report, you will see the following;
A) Total page count - shows the total number of pages printed on the printer.
B) Toner remaining - shows the percentage of toner left in the cartridge . ((This is the most important one to keep track of!!))
C) Equivalent pages printed - shows the number of pages printed if you were printing a ISO/IEC 19752 compliant test page.
D) Average area coverage - shows the average amount of image area per page ("image area" is all the printed stuff on the page).
E) Page count - shows the total number of pages printed on the current cartridge.

Remember that Samsung ESTIMATES the number of pages that a cartridge will print based on a standard industry test (ISO/IEC 19752). That test assumes a consumption rate of approximately 4-5% coverage per page. Here is where C, D and E from above come into play. A Samsung printer measures the amount of coverage (image area) on the pages being printed. Then it averages the measurements all together to figure out how much toner is being used per page. This average is D from above. If D is greater than 4-5%, then C will be greater than E above. The inverse is if D is less than 4-5%, then E will be greater than C above.

Okay, In plain English...If your pages have a lot of print on them, you'll use up the toner faster than Samsung anticipated and you will not get the full number of pages that Samsung said you would get. The inverse...If your pages have very little print on them, you'll use the toner slower than Samsung anticipated and you will get many more pages than Samsung said you would get. That's why Samsung says the cartridge life (page yield) is ESTIMATED.

That's enough for now...hope it clears up some things.

Ok thank you for the explanation, I understand that it won't work for those who have 1600 v34 if they remove the chip.

But... do we know something about v1.00.20.34 solution?

Guys you can't find free firmwares on ML-1660_V.34. They will made only for one device according printer Serial Number. I bought here 34v and my printer work perfectly.

[assasin] That definitely isn't the run of the mill firmware for the ML-1660/1665 printer. Depending on your computer's OS, this could open up a whole new avenue for ML-1660/1665 owners. I have a slew of questions if you don't mind.

1) What operating system are you running on your computer?
2) Did you install that firmware yourself?
3) If you installed it, where did you obtain the firmware?
4) Does the printer still keep track of the number of pages printed on the cartridge?
5) If it keeps track of the pages, can the counters be cleared or reset so the toner light doesn't come on?

[sorinsxtj] I checked out the article but the translation is not very good. I'm not sure if you just run the software and it resets the printer...or...if you have to do additional programming on the chip in the printer too. Can you tell me the details of the procedure step by step?


Re: Re: Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by sorinsxtj (3/15/11 9:25 AM) reply + / -
Sure. 1st if google translator is bad , listen to me :))
Yes. u need to do aditional programing on printer. U have to reprogram the 93c66wp cip. You have to unsolder it and reprogram with the dump given in that link. It is more easy and safe if u program with Ponyprog(bcz, the dump was saved with it)
So how it works. The dump is content of NVRAM( 93c66wp) from one printer allready fixed. If u read it before programe u will see the serial something like 4z..... Then the firmware atached, is patched for that serial. You change after all the serial of your printer and firmware also. Mine was 1.20.34 before and now is 10.34f.
If you allready read that link, there was 2 downloads for 1660. If u use the one called

whit a 12c programer. it is a cheap serial or paralel programer. if u dont have one ask some friends working whit electronic stuff. if u want to buy one is some like 10 euro max. Ask for one that works whit ponyprog software


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by persmash (3/15/11 9:46 AM) reply + / -
OK. After I unsolder the chip, I'll put it on 12c programmer and overwrite dump file to it? After that apply the firmware. Am I totaly true?


Re: Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by sorinsxtj (3/15/11 9:54 AM) reply + / -
Yes. that is all. Make sure to do an dump compare. The one u download and what u program on cip. I used other software to program the cip, solder, and when i test printer the serial number of the printer does not mach whit the serial prezent in dump. Then i used ponyprog ( the program that was used by rusians to save the dump) and everything was ok.


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by infoguy (3/15/11 11:41 AM) reply + / -
[sorinsxtj] Thank you for the clarification. Unfortunately, that will not work for our situation. We sell toner refills and distribute firmware fixes free to our toner customers if we have a version that is compatible with the customer's printer. Most people don't have the time, interest or talent to perform a procedure like the one you describe. The fixes we use just have to be installed in the printer one time by simply running the program once. Then the counters reset every time the printer is turned off (all except the total counter). The printer serial number doesn't matter....only the firmware version matters.

Question: Has anyone tried just running the firmware fix WITHOUT cloning the printer first? If so, what happened?


Re: Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by sorinsxtj (edited 3/15/11 1:46 PM) reply + / -
nothing happen. the firmware , whit v34 version is chained with serial of printer. If u tray to put and old firmware not pached whit the serial orange led blinks and nothingj happend. There exist a method to patch firmware whit your serial of printer, but i dont know how to do it. On web i see a lot of guys who make this for a fee. 10 to 20 euro. U have to mail them the serial of ur printer. If someone wants the easy way , or have to pay to them or wait for some other patches to come.

Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by infoguy (3/15/11 7:52 PM) reply + / -
[persmash] I believe he said the NVRAM chip is "93c66wp" for the ML-1660/1665. According to the article the ML-1660/1665 chip is "U4 93S66" and the SCX-3200 chip is "U17 24С256".


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by infoguy (3/15/11 7:59 PM) reply + / -
[sorinsxtj] Yes, I found a couple Russian sites selling the patch software. I find that you have to pay for the patch when it is new, but later on as Samsung sends out other firmware versions, you can find downloads free.

sonrinsxtj can you confirm that the chip we've to unsolder and reprogram is NVRAM( 93c66wp)?

I'll ask for some electronic labs if they have one programmer for this kind of chips, but first of all I need to know if is this chip or not

it means tht wen ill turn off my printer and aftr tht i start it again.......the page limit will b zero......i printed 700 pgs with starter toner.after refilling it i removed the chip.and every time i swittch on the printer.the page count is zero.i think tht for my printer the chip just only keeps page count record.coz wen i print a test page after removing the chip.the toner gives printer registration no and all tht info of the printer


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by sorinsxtj (3/16/11 9:17 AM) reply + / -
yes. the cip is an humdrum, trivial , 93c66. (93c66pw) . It must be programed 16 bits, if u have no knowledge in programing use ponyprog.
And some more info. After this, the capacity of the cartridge will be 1,5k instead of 0,7. So u cannot do more than 1,5k prints at once without shutdown and restart ur printer :). The counter of the printer will still count pages, if u print a report u will see that there are many info like " transfer roler" =life 50.000 pages. The onother counter, the one in the cip of cartridge will reset after each restart bcz there will be no more cip, u have to dash it away. If u keep it the orange led will be blink, but printer stil works.
That is what happen in my case. I`m happy now with this printer ceap to refill :P

Re: Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by infoguy (edited 3/16/11 10:13 AM) reply + / -
[assasin] I think I'm starting to get the picture. The events you describe are just like a firmware fix (patch) works. It zeros out all the counters when the printer is turned off...except the total page counter. Also, the Toner Remaining goes back to 100%, the Capacity changes from .7K to 1.5K and the Kind of Cartridge goes from "I" (for Initial) to "R" (for replacement) even though the "initial" starter cartridge is still in the printer.

Is it possible that somewhere along the way a patch was downloaded into your printer? Usually, the chip is removed or taped at the same time the patch is downloaded into the printer. If this was not done to the chip, you may not have known that the patch was installed because the counters would not zero out. Some time afterward, you removed the chip and suddenly, the counters started zeroing out.

This number "6.10.64.12" may actually be a driver and not the firmware. Current ML-1660/1665 firmwares usually start with "V" and end with "30" or "34".

Just in case you want to check the firmware version again, there are two ways to do it;

First...try holding down the print screen button on the printer for 5 seconds and the Configuration page will print. Then do it again and the Status page will print. This works for V30 printers.

If it doesn't work then try this next. This works for V34 printers

Configuration page - Press and hold down the print screen button on the printer. You will see this > status light starts flashing fast > status light stops flashing > status light starts flashing slowly. Now release the button and the configuration page will print.

Status page - Press and hold down the print screen button on the printer. You will see this > status light starts flashing fast > status light stops flashing > status light starts flashing slowly > status light starts flashing fast. Now release the button and the status page will print.

[persmash] Sorry, I don't have a picture of this chip on the ML-1660/1665 main PC board handy...but you can do a quick Google Image search that should help you identify the chip. This is a simple run if the mill memory chip that is used in many different electronic devices. You should just look at the chip itself in the pics and not pay attention to the rest of the PC board because it is not the ML-1660/1665 PC board.

Please note that there are several manufacturers of the chip, so the writing on the top of the chip will be somewhat different from each manufacturer...but the number 93C66 should always appear regardless of the manufacturer who made it.

PS - I first tried to post this reply with image links for you but I think it has to be reviewed by the Admin first. So, another posting may like this one may appear soon with the links in it.

PPS - Yes...what sorinsxtj said or you may be replacing your printer!

Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by infoguy (edited 4/4/11 7:07 AM) reply + / -
[CrysMM] The password is 231180123 if you want to try it for yourself.

You will need these instructions:
1) download files
2) unzip folder
3) make sure printer is connected to computer via USB cable
4) take out toner cartridge and place scotch tape over chip
5) reinstall toner cartridge in printer
6) drag and drop ML1660 file onto usblist2 file (this runs program)
7) wait 1 minute
8) restart printer

At this point, the printer status light should be green and the remaining toner should be back to 100% but that does not happen. There is no affect at all from running the software.

I believe this software may have been created for one specific customer and was linked to that customer's printer serial number. So, it will not work on any other printer.

[pkasad] When you ran the V34, you updated the firmware from V30 to V34. The V30 fix was overwritten. You now have original V34 firmware.

To print the machine report do this...
(remove tape from chip first)

Configuration Page:
Press and hold down the print screen button on the printer. You will see the status light do this > 1) flash fast, 2) stop flashing, 3) flash slowly > Now release the button and the Configuration Page should print. (this page has the OS version on it. Starting with "V" and ending with 34)

Supplies Page:
Press and hold down the print screen button on the printer again. You will see the status light do this > 1) flash fast, 2) stop flashing, 3) flash slowly, 4) flash fast again > Now release the button and the Supplies Page should print.

[grejf] I'm not sure what you are asking but if it is how to print the configuration page with the firmware version on it...here is how you do it.

Press and hold the print screen button for about 10 seconds until the status light begins to flash slowly. Then release the button and the configuration page will print.

(IMPORTANT) The printer must be in green ready mode for this to work. If the status light is red, the printer will only print the supplies page which does not have the firmware version on it.

YURSADAL's firmware fix worked w/ the replacement cartridge of my Samsung ml-1665.
You have to convert the file coz it is a ZIP/RAR file. I utilized the Hamster Zip from CNET.com...it is free.
After it is extracted, I moved the file to my Downloads and opened it there.
Connected my printer thru usb and turned them on. Clicked on the file f1660.exe...then click on the V03 fix/firmware and the printer light turned orange then red.
Turn your printer off and you may removed the chip if you are refilling it or just put a tape on it if it is a replacement cartridge.
Turn your printer on and you should see a green light.

Basically, your printer has been hacked so be aware when to replace or refill your cartridge.
Mine is a refill so I just weighed it and checked the difference before and after the refill.

Spent $8.00 on the refill and the entire day browsing for a firmware
fix...NOT BAD AT ALL!

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!!

Reset Samsung ML-1660 series version 3.10.64:12 by tahseen (9/26/11 3:16 PM) reply+1 + / -
100% working

1st step remove the cartridge from the printer.

2nd step remove the chip from cartridge.

3rd step turn on the printer and hold down three pins on the right side of printer for about 15 to 20 seconds while cartridge is not inserted.

4th step now insert back the cartridge in to the printer and now you are done .

try to print your page number count will start from 0 and u can refill it many times as u want by repeating this above method .

I tried many methods and i was unable to reset it but after 2 months I did it my self by above method , now always apply the same steps for page number reseting and refiling and it is working very well . hope that some one will get benefit from my method.

[gengha] It's too bad you didn't heed the warning in my posting of 6/7/11. Unfortunately, you have installed the bogus V34 fix that is floating around the Internet. Now your printer is FUBAR. You will not be able to install a legitimate fix in your printer now. It cannot be fixed except to replace the board first, then fix it. You should have gone to eBay and purchased a legitimate fix. Your printer would be working right if you did that.

seems like I'm in deep shit now, that's kind of a thing that happens to people who like boasting around...anyway I'm happy it's still printing although without a tape on the chip. I only have one question. will I be able to use other toner packages after I end with this one? thanks infoguy


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by infoguy (10/2/11 9:14 AM) reply + / -
[gengha] I am embarrassed to say that I did the very same thing several months ago. That is how I first found out. Even though I knew better than to try an untested fix from the Internet, I wanted to experiment and see if it could be reversed if something went wrong. I tried installing a legitimate fix but it did not work. I tried every trick I know and still it did work. I even tried re-installing the original Samsung firmware and that did not work either.

You can refill your cartridge and install a reset chip on it or you can buy aftermarket cartridges that are ready to use. Both methods will work...AS LONG AS THE CHIP IS COMPATIBLE. Many people are getting chips that turn out to be incompatible. Chips made in the USA are usually compatible and will work. BUT many chips come from China which are cheaper but not always compatible. They do not always work.

On the bright side...the printer costs about the same as a toner cartridge for it. A person could just buy a new printer instead of a cartridge. With lessons learned, install a legitimate fix which lasts the life of the printer and then refill the cartridge for under $10.

The best scenario for installing a firmware fix is when it is done to a brand new printer when it is all working properly. It will work as long as you install the fix correctly. If anything goes wrong, return the printer for warranty replacement ;).

Well my printer is only a month old or so, but isn't it right that warranty void if meddling with such things?you are right about the price of the printer, the only reason I tried this is that I am unable to pay online, since I'm brom Bosnia, and most of them require online payment, which is currently impossible, as far as I know.hope those chips will be compatible, I contacted a few guys who told me that there will be replacement toners half price of the original, with chips installed ofcourse... up to me to wait and see if that works. Thanks again infoguy

[gengha] "but isn't it right that warranty void if meddling with such things"...Yes you are right about the warranty being void if you install such things but people return it anyway. They just say it doesn't work right and the store will replace it. It is not honest but it is the way of things.

"the only reason I tried this is that I am unable to pay online"...Any person with a credit card or bank account can setup an account at PayPal.com. You can make secure payments online that way. The seller never gets to see your financial information because only PayPal handles it and processes the payment to the seller. PayPal is free.

"I contacted a few guys who told me that there will be replacement toners half price of the original"...It is best to buy this type of cartridge locally. If something goes wrong you can return it.

If you had a working fix in the printer so you did not need any reset chips, you could refill your own cartridge very cheaply. Go to YouTube.com and search for "refill ml-1660 toner" and look at the videos. It is very easy.

Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by gengha (10/8/11 12:00 AM) reply + / -
Currently there are no free fixes around the Internet. So all you have to do is contact some of the mentioned suppliers and they will give you the fix, and you'll have to pay for it. Don't use and of the free fixes you find on the internet otherwise you'll end up just like me. My printer works, but I won't be able to apply the legitimate fix in the future. so it's kind of locked or something.

Hello. As i start reading i can see that there are a lot of variants for destroying your printer :). My opinion is that the most clear variant for using refiled cartridges is with firmware fix. Some of you wrote that there is a problem after using a fix. But of course. How do you thing that you can download file, with a name of your printer model, from somewhere and it will work for you too. The old fixes can work for old factory firmwares. Every new firmware version will prevent this hack. New firmwares are connected with serial number, Crum number...... Here is a link which can help you: http://printstream.eu/viewforum.php?f=20. Samsung and Xerox printers, and if needed other brands. The guys will give you the exact firmware for your printer, or you can just ask them at skype or email what do you need.


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by infoguy (edited 10/11/11 7:31 AM) reply + / -
For ML-1660 and ML-1665:
Get V30 or V34 depending on which your printer needs.

Search "firmware fix" on ebay.com


3 pins u can find pkasad by tahseen hyder abbasi (10/12/11 10:41 PM) reply + / -
follow these steps to reach the the three pins .

1st open the the cover and plug out the printer cartridge .

2nd now look inside the printer where cartridge fits, u will see on the right side three white colour pins with distance 0f one inch in between them just press them . note (near to them are four other pins with golden colour, which are very near to each other don't need to touch them just three pins ).


or

follow power button and print screen button and then open the printer cover remove cartridge and now just look inside the printer at right corner u will see the 7 pins , from which only three pins with white colour u have to hold they are like the colour of steel .

Crum is not needed even on .34? Why it is asked on this action on ebay ?

Search with this keyword:
Samsung-ML1665-ML-1665-Toner-Reset-Firmware-Fix-

On my firmware (.30) i need a personalized version or not?

I'm confused because i have read in other places the fact that v1.20.00.30 is updated firmware on v1.02.00.30 and using v1.01.00.30 will be a bad choice and will not rezolve anything...






Re: Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by IndexAB (edited 10/15/11 7:06 AM) reply + / -
1. Protection by crum began to apply more recently, and the fix for version 34 exists for a long time already (at me such).
2. Versions 1.01.xx and 1.20.xx differ by region. Itself did not try, but on several russian IT sites it was spoken that all works good.
3. If you version is 30, it can be downloaded free from inet (1.01.00.30) and it not personalized....The small risk exist, but differently it will not turn out... :)

Ok..i am very gratefull for your help...
I have one more question..it is posible to modify firmware to increase toner density up to 50%?,i will try to do this decreasing negative depolarization voltage but that will decrease contrast also..


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by Basstronics (10/15/11 9:25 AM) reply + / -
Ive been following this thread for a bit.

My toner refill came in today so it was time to do this.

I have the 30 firmware. My print outs said toner was 0% and pages were barely legible. Red light on and blinking.

I downloaded a fix file from here it was 1660v30,zip

I also downloaded this known pay fix from: http://www.printerreset.net/en/firmware/upgrade/15

note the pay fix has a password so you can see the files but not use them. I was able to compare the free file downloaded to this paid file, they are the same.

So I used their instruction to the best of my ability:
"Before you continue with the reprogramming of the firmware, please make sure that the device is installed on your computer. Remove the chip from the cartridge or seal it up.

1. Connect the printer to the computer

2. When you turn the device on, hold the Cancel button until all lights begin flashing

3. Run the program through a file "f1660.exe" which is not in the folder

4. When the program has started, click on "V.30 patch firmware"

5. Afterwards in the folder a file is automatically created - "FIX_ML1660_V1.01.00.30.fls", "FIX_ML1665_V1.01.00.30.fls" or "FIX_ML1667_V1.01.00.30.fls" the filename depends on the printer which its connected to

6. The created file needs to be dragged to the file icon "usblist2.exe"

7. Wait until the printer reprograms (1 minute) and restarts

8. After that the reprogramming process is finished, restart the printer"

I held my reset but but all it did was print the info page... So I grabbed the file with my printer model number dragged it to and dropped it on the file "usbprns2" and a DOS window popped up and the printer light flashed different. After a few minutes I shut printer off, started back up.

Green light came on. Printed info pages. Same firmware number but the toner is now 100% and 0 page count.

Looks like it worked for me! happy!

I about paid $20 on e bay for the fix!

I congratulate, but you could download a fix 1.01.00.30 absolutely free of charge and to receive the same result :))

I did download the free fix as I found here on this thread.

I was not going to pay for it unless I had to.

Just wanted to share my experience to help others. Hopefully the process I followed is easy enough for others to follow along.

[ciprian]
You might as well forget it. You are trying to get the ML-1660 to do something it wasn't designed to do.

You will not be able to get the toner density you need by adjusting the drivers because it is beyond the range of capability. You would have to make a physical adjustment to the toner cartridge and raise the doctor blade to allow a heavier layer of toner on the developing roller. However, you would then have to contend with the problem of insufficient fusing which means you would have to raise the fusing temperature so the toner sticks to the pnp properly. I'm not sure, but there's a good chance that the temperature is fixed and cannot be adjusted on this printer.


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by ciprian (10/15/11 4:24 PM) reply + / -
@infoguy
I will keep trying,i was able today to decrease temperature,increasing it if needed it is almost just as easy..

I will not make modifications to the cartrige,i tried your method once with another one and it didn't gave good results...i will just try decreasing depolarization voltage...

@CrysMM,IndexAB

Thanks again for your help!



Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by infoguy (10/15/11 7:48 PM) reply + / -
[ciprian]

I believe you are referring to the bias voltage applied to the toner cartridge when you say "depolarization voltage". Yes, that will allow more toner to be transferred from the developing roller to the drum but you might start getting background all over your document if it is adjusted too low.

You can also try increasing the voltage to the transfer roller which would pull more toner off the drum and on to the pnp...if it is adjustable.

So, you were able to adjust the fusing temperature. You will most likely have to increase it to fuse a heavier toner layer. The fusing circuit is protected by a thermal fuse so you have to be careful not to raise the temperature too high or you'll blow it.

About the toner...I must tell you that refill toners do not do well on special medias. They're great for regular printing on plain paper but when it comes to things like transparencies, envelopes, textured papers and other special media, they do not do as well as the genuine OEM toners which , of course, are very expensive.

[ciprian]
In one of your posting on 10/15, you asked why is the CRUM number being asked for on eBay if it is not needed.

This is the reason...
The fixes for ALL new firmware versions will require the CRUM number from now on. This was added to increase product security. Some of the "FREE" fixes being offered on the Internet today are a result of the original fixes being hacked. The programmers that create the fixes wanted to protect their work better so they added a new security element.

TonerKits is the company listing the firmware fixes on eBay. TonerKits lists all the fixes for a particular model on one listing page. Since the newer fixes will require the CRUM number, TonerKits wanted customers to get used to the idea of providing that number. Depending on the printer model and firmware version, some of the existing fixes now require the CRUM and some do not...but they just ask for it in all cases anyway. As time goes on and new firmware versions are introduced by Samsung, the CRUM will eventually be required for all printer models and firmware versions. Soon the days of free fixes will be over except for a few of the oldest versions that are no longer used by most people.

sir I'm a recent owner of a ML-1660 and have been reading this topic with interest, looking to the future when the toner runs out. My query is how do I get a "Supplies Report", I've tried pressing the page button for 5 seconds as suggested but all I get is a screen dump. If I press the page button until I get a slow green flash I get what looks like a configuration sheet ( it shows version ,serial number etc). I looking for a report which shows the printed pages count that I keep reading in the topic.

I used this technology before. The chip is called an eeprom. It has 8 pins. Check your chip on your credit card and you will see something similar. One of the pins is a write pin isolating this would prevent writing to the chip. Does this chip have any markings on it. I need to do this. How easy is it to get to the chip. If I can check it out I will post back a solution.

Hi, my printer is samsung ml 1665 v34f
I tried Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by zenek007 (1/21/12 8:58 AM) reply + / -
You will need these instructions:

1) make sure printer is connected to computer via USB cable
2) take out toner cartridge and place scotch tape over chip
3) reinstall toner cartridge in printer
4) run the printer with screen print button
4) drag and drop ML1660 file onto usbprns2.exe file (this runs program)
5) wait 1 minute
6) restart printer

Used the fix generated from http://fix-free.ru/ and now my printer works without a toner chip. every time I turn the printer on it resets the toner counter to 0 and shows 100% toner remaining. however, in the general information part it still counts the printed pages. So here comes the big question. Does this counter also have to be reset or should I just leave it as it is? If anyone has the answer any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Hello! I hope someone can help me. I bought a Samsung ML-1660 printer while living in Paris last year. I moved back to the US, and just bought a new toner for the printer. The toner says that it is compatible with the ML-1660, but when I put it in, I get a message that is is not compatible and the red line is on. I bought two of these new toners, so now I am out over $100. Can anyone help me to get the toners working? Thanks so much! Alicia


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by infoguy (2/29/12 6:44 PM) reply + / -
Alicia,

Like many other manufacturers, Samsung has different cartridge versions for different parts of the world. In particular, I am talking about the chip on the cartridge that is different.

You have a European version printer from Paris and the toner cartridges you bought in the USA have North American version chips.

You may wonder why a manufacturer would do such a thing...
It is so cartridges which sell for a lower price in one region of the world cannot be sold in mass to other regions of the world where the price of the cartridge is significantly higher.

You have two possible solutions available to you...
The first is to buy replacement chips and replace the chip on each cartridge.

The second and best solution is to purchase a firmware fix for the printer itself.

A firmware fix is a modified firmware that essentially, makes the chip on the toner cartridge obsolete and the printer pays no attention to it.

A firmware fix will allow you to use any cartridge without worrying about compatibility...you can even refill your own cartridges if you wish.

There are some individuals in this forum that have tried fixes they have found free on the Internet. I caution against that because you risk damaging your printer without professional guidance...also there is no tech support if something goes wrong. Once the damage is done it cannot be undone.

If you would prefer to deal with a professional company that specializes in this kind of thing. You can look us up at TonerKits dot com.


Re: Reset for Samsung ML-1660 by infoguy (2/29/12 6:50 PM) reply + / -
Alicia,

I forgot to mention one thing...
If the cartridges you bought were the aftermarket non-Samsung type, it is possible that the chips on the cartridges would have been incompatible regardless of where your printer came from. This is a common thing people are experiencing these days. A firmware fix also prevents this type of problem.

gengha,

I told you your printer was FUBAR based on YOUR description of the situation. If your printer was not FUBAR, then you didn't describe the situation accurately in your post.

If you had indeed loaded the bad file I was talking about into your printer, it would definitely be FUBAR and nothing would fix it.

I don't understand why you are so bitter. You have spent a great deal of time lurking around this forum trying to get a free fix rather than buying one. Now, you have supposedly found what you wanted...so why are you still lurking around?

Thanks, this is all great information about the Samsung laser cartridges. I have a Samsung ML2525 that has a cartridge cost equal to the original printer cost. I did find that when I refilled the cartridge for the second time it gave me the "end of cartridge life" error and refused to print. I pulled the cartridge out and experimented with taping the contacts until I found the solution. So here it is.....

Place a piece of electrical tape over the first contact (orientation of cartridge is with the pull handle pointing at you). This killed the error and let me proceed.

Now I am on the 4th or 5th refilling of the same cartridge. The status light stays green and I never have replaced the chip. No chip resetting software was used during this entire process.

I hope it works for you.

I believe I have found a fix for the ml 1660 firmware v.34

I have uploaded the solution in zip file to http://www.4shared.com/zip/WWdzBItj/ML1660_v34_Z4ZEBKEB400985N.html

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Unzip the folder
2. Open the xvi32 folder and run xvi32.exe (xvi32 is a Hex code editor)
3. Using xvi32 open "P_ML1660_v34_Z4ZEBKEB400985N.hd"
4. Search for "Z4Z" using CTRL + F. This will bring you to the point in the code where the serial number is held. Using the text side of the editor enter your printers serial number and save the file.
5. Rename the "P_ML1660_v34_Z4ZEBKEB400985N.hd" file(in my case I kept the file name structure the same as the original and just updated the serial number in it).
6. Right click and edit using notepad "ML1660_v34_Z4ZEBKEB400985N.bat" update the content to your newly renamed file name mentioned in point 5. (I'm not sure if this is required, however I did it anyway)
7. Drag and drop the newly renamed .hd file over usbprns.exe
8. Place some tape over the toner cartridge chip.

This has worked for 2 of my ml-1660 1.20.00.34 printers.

Good Luck
