Also, I had trouble with this reset as my unit still didn't reset my toner count, so it still wouldn't work.

I did however find this post:

After reading that post, I put a temporary on/off switch (push button) soldered into pins 3/4 of U6, held the switch on (short) while turning on the printer just until the lights turned off, then released the button. After that, I restarted the printer and my print count was reset to 0! fantastic. works now.

I left the switch soldered in for the next time my printer needs to be reset.

Happy resetting!

I try and tray many combinations with jumper but without success.
My version of firmware was 05-13-2009.
After many attempts, I finaly find a software solution to reset not total page counter, but Toner page counter.

This solution, you can download it from here:

reset your toner counter to 0, every time when you turn on the printer.

First of all you need to remove chip from toner cartridge.

Than, make procedure like write there.

For me, nothing from preocedure didnt work (I receive eroor messages) until I open file fix2240_93.bat, and after that downl2240_93.bat

My suprise was big when I hear reset noises from my printer.
After reset, I saw green light on my printer first time after two years :).

My version of firmware before reset was 05-13-2009.
Toner page count: 2122
Cartridge capacity: not suport

After reset:
OS Version: 11-23-2009
Toner page count: 0
Cartridge capacity: 1.5K

The best thing is that after I print about 30 pages, I turn printer of and after few seconds on, toner page count was still 0 pages.

But remember!!! Without chip in cartridge!!!

I hope that this will help somebody.

Happy resettting!

I forgot to write in previous post.
My antivirus (AVG) detect some files from the link above like viruses. But I just turn off antivirus for a 10 min.

I dont know are the viruses there or not.

For me, work all perfect.
