Samsung ML-2510 refil cartridge question

  pcdimwit 10:10 01 Oct 2009

after looking at the positive replies from people who re-fill toner in cartridges I want to do this with my Samaung b/w ML-2510 cartridge, my question is: I have read that the toner light may still flash as I have to download a programme to reset the setting on the printer software (i dont really understand all this so might be getting the terminology wrong here!!! I am PCDIMWIT after all!!!) Does anyone here have a Samsung ML-2510 that they have refilled and can confirm this? or will it be OK once the topped-up cartridge is re-insterted, the seller on ebay supplies a fuse that may be necessary for the cartridge, can anyone explain what this is for? I cant find the fuse in the cartridge itself, thanks in advance for all y our help for this computer DUNCE!!!!

has a similar Samsung... 2150 I think...

The page counter sets of the flashing light when it reaches a predetermined no of pages printed, (3000 I think, but don't quote me on that!).

When a "new" cartridge is inserted the printer detects a "new" fuse and the fuse "blows". This resets the counter, and stops the light flashing. If you put a catridge in that either doesn't have a fuse, or has a blown one, the reset doesn't happen.

(That's my understanding anyway!)

The fuse is a small one, located neat the front left of the cartridge, ... That is to say as you are inserting the cartridge it will be forward of you left hand.

That's all assuming that your's works the same way as my sister's!

Good luck,
