    Dear dangmien,

    I wanted to thank you for the software. It worked as advertised – for my printer.

    Now I no longer need to buy the toner chip (when I refill my toner cartridge).

    I will recommend you to my friends,



  3. Hello,

    Yesterday I updated my printer’s firmware and afterwards all the lights started flashing erratically. Will the firmware fix solve this problem?

    Many thanks,

  4. Dear Dangmein,
    I called Samsung first with my “Toner Not Installed” alert. My printer was out of warranty. I was told that I would have to pay for the service and shipping myself. If I hadn’t just purchased 2 new toner cartridges, I probably would’ve just purchased a new printer. Since your firmware fix was only $12, I decided to try it. I saw several different websites that offered this same service. The reason that I chose yours was because of the official order form you provide along with the security of using Paypal for payment.
    Thank you so much! This reset fix worked. Now we’re not out 2 toners!
