– And make sure that any other devices (except mouse and keyboard), which are connected to your computer via USB or LPT ports are disconnected. It’s preferable that the computer is connected to the “UPS” (uninterruptible power source) device, because if during the reprogramming process the electricity source has any interruptions, then the reprogramming will be carried out with an error, which makes the device unable to work.
– This firmware will be installed directly to your printer. Before opening firmare make sure that printer is turned on and connected to your computer and printer drivers are installed correctly.

Samsung CLX-3170FN toner cartridge/toner chip review:
– Samsung CLX-3170FN’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 CLX-3170FN toner chip contains calculated limitation that was managed by Samsung manufacturer. Following Samsung, if toner coverage is 5%, Samsung CLX-3170FN toner chip is delivered 1.000 – 1.500 pages.
– If toner coverage is higher than 5% -> Toner Page Yields are less than “1.000 – 1.500″ pages. If toner coverage is lower than 5%, Toner Page Yields are “1.000 – 1.500″ pages. That is the reason why bold printouts (high toner coverage) will make printer run out of toner quickly.
– When Samsung CLX-3170FN toner chip overload its calculated limitation, printer will be locked inspire of high toner cartridge.
When Samsung CLX-3170FN needs to clear page counter limit:
– Samsung CLX-3170FN 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…
