How to Reset the Toner Chip on a Samsung CLP-300
Replacing your toner chip is far more economical than buying a reset device. (pile of paper sheets with paper-clips image by stassad from Fotolia.com)

If you've recently refilled your Samsung printer's toner cartridge and now need to reset the chip to get your printer to recognise your toner levels, one way to do it is to reset the toner chip using an electronic device. While this method can make it possible for you not to buy a new toner chip, you will have to buy the toner reset device, which can be quite costly and hard to find. An alternative is to buy and install a new toner chip for just a few bucks. Since the Samsung CLP-300 printer is considered an economy printer, and the reset device can cost hundreds of dollars, replacing the chip is the most economical way to go.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Purchase a replacement toner chip from an online retailer like 123 Refills or InkFilling (see Resources). You will need a credit or debit card to order the replacement toner chip. Replacement chips typically cost £1.90 to £3. If possible, order your replacement chip when you order your toner refill kit (typically available from the same retailers) so you save some money on shipping.

  2. 2

    Remove your toner cartridge from the printer. Locate the chip on the top of the toner cartridge.

  3. 3

    Peel the backing off the new replacement chip and stick it on top of the old chip. According to UniKit, you should not remove the old chip, since it is fused to the toner cartridge.

  4. 4

    Place the toner cartridge back in the printer. Test the printer to see if it works.

  1. 1

    Purchase a toner reset device, if you are not concerned about money and don't mind investing more than you paid for the printer itself. Check online retail listings like Amazon or AliBaba to find a toner reset device. Some of the retailers listed there may not be reputable or recognisable, so order at your own risk.

  2. 2

    Remove the toner cartridge from your printer.

  3. 3

    Turn the toner reset device to the "on" position. Insert the pins that stick out of the device into the corresponding holes on the toner chip. Look for the reset device's indicator light to turn green, signalling that the toner chip is reset.
