Samsung CLP-680DW toner cartridge/toner chip review:
– Samsung CLP-680DW’s cartridge is enclosed with a toner chip that was used to calculate toner coverage and to deliver bold or light printout quality depending on printer original printout design.
– Samsung CLP-680DW toner chip contains calculated limitation that was managed by Samsung manufacturer. Following Samsung, if toner coverage is 5%, Samsung CLP-680DW toner chip is delivered 3.500 – 5.000 pages.
– If toner coverage is higher than 5% -> Toner Page Yields are less than “3.500 – 5.000″ pages. If toner coverage is lower than 5%, Toner Page Yields are “3.500 – 5.000″ pages. That is the reason why bold printouts (high toner coverage) will make printer run out of toner quickly.
– When Samsung CLP-680DW toner chip overload its calculated limitation, printer will be locked inspire of high toner cartridge.
When Samsung CLP-680DW needs to clear page counter limit:
– Samsung CLP-680DW printer’s messages: red light or red light(with Monochrome function printer) blinking(with Multifunction printer), imprinting.
– Computer’s messages: Toner low, install new toner cartridge, toner life end, replace new toner cartridge, toner empty, toner exhausted…
