Why Samsung clx-3305FW needs to be reset:

– Samsung clx-3305FW’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-3305FW toner chip contains calculated limitation that was managed by Samsung manufacturer. Following Samsung, if toner coverage is 5%, Samsung clx-3305FW 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-3305FW toner chip overload its calculated limitation, printer will be locked inspire of high toner cartridge.
