I'd buy a B&W printer for B&W printing, and keep this one for color printing, unless you find it better to buy a low volume inkjet printer for that.
We have experienced an issue with our otherwise excellent Samsung CLP-670ND printer that we can't believe hasn't been spotted before.
Has anybody had the same/similar issues and come across a way of tricking the printer?
We have the CLP-670ND colour laser printer though mainly use it for mono.
About a month ago we had to replace the starter cartridges with a full set of colour toners at £200. In just over a month the printer has told us that these toners are now spent and must be replaced.
We were a bit bemused as the printer said that we had only done 18 colour prints.
After many hours on the phone with Samsung we got an engineer to admit that although we default all printing in greysscale the rollers to the colour toners don't disengage. As a result the printer thinks that the toners are spent when in reality they are probably still 99% full.
As things stand we have no option but to either buy new toners every month or so or just ditch the 6 month old printer as Samsung have said that the CLP-680ND does disengage the colour toners when printing in greyscale.
Does anybody know whether it would be possible to somehow trick the printer into thinking that these toners were still good to go?
