My System Specs

Default Laser Toner refills & Reset Chips

Ive been researching in to replacing my toner cartridges (Samsung CLP-310), and after realizing $45 each is highway robbery (as if we all dont know). Hell, I got the printer on special for 49.99 at NCIX Markhams grand opening! Anyways, you can get 'reset' PCBs that you solder on to your printers PCB to *ahem* circumvent the 'out of toner' device they use. Any one had experience with doing this?

There is a guy in Montreal (ebay link) selling a kit, with the chip and 3 colours + black refills for 70 USD. Considering I was going to pay 45 just for the black OEM refill, I'm seriously considering just giving this a go. I'm not worried about the wire soldering. I have the skills to do it, and even if I did bork it, I only paid 50 bucks for the printer anyways, so I'll just buy a new one

I've been replacing the toner in our laser printer cartridge for the last 2 years. I got the toner on Ebay for $14 and simply refill it. Mine is only black and white so it's simpler for me.
