ADMINISTRATOR: Please move this to the appropriate forum. The forum titles are in Magyar and I cannot understand them.

The Samsung CLP-310/315 and CLX-3175/3178 are great color laser printers and can be had quite inexpensively. But a set of replacement cartridges can cost more than the printer.

Refill toner is very inexpensive--I use but there are other sources--but the cartridges contain an I2C EEPROM which records page count. You can refill the cartridge but it will still be reported as exhausted.

A quirk of the printer design is that the original cartridges that come with the printer have no EEPROMS; their counts are stored in system EEPROM. With a simple modification to the printer you can erase these counts and cause the printer to accept any cartridges for multiple reuses.

This is documented at . I've done this to two printers and it has worked well for me.
