Why Samsung CLX-6260FR needs to be reset:

– Samsung CLX-6260FR’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-6260FR toner chip contains calculated limitation that was managed by Samsung manufacturer. Following Samsung, if toner coverage is 5%, Samsung CLX-6260FR toner chip is delivered 3.500 – 6.000 pages.

– If toner coverage is higher than 5% -> Toner Page Yields are less than “3.500 – 6.000” pages. If toner coverage is lower than 5%, Toner Page Yields are “3.500 – 6.000” pages. That is the reason why bold printouts (high toner coverage) will make printer run out of toner quickly.

– When Samsung CLX-6260FR toner chip overload its calculated limitation, printer will be locked inspire of high toner cartridge.

Additional info

Before you continue with the reprogramming of the firmware, please make sure that the device is installed on your computer.

It is very important that under no circumstances should you remove the chip from the cartridge while reprogramming the firmware. After you have succesfully reprogrammed the printer, remove the chip from the cartridge and store it somewhere safely (the chip – a key). In all cartridges which you are going to use in the printer, the chip has to be either removed or sealed. If you have accidently inserted a new cartridge without removing the chip, the device will be blocked. In order to unblock it, you can use the stored chip as a key which help you to unblock the printer.

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 link make sure that printer is turned on and connected to your computer and printer drivers are installed correctly.
