A couple of years ago I bought a Samsung CLP-680 colour laser printer -
it doesn't get used much and, after 500 colour pages, there's about 35%
toner left. I while ago it started printing badly so I invoked my
(free!) 5 year warranty, but Samsung say that the toner is only
warranted for 6 months and needs replacing, despite showing 35%
remaining. Previous HP printers haven't had this problem so is there
something particularly crap about Samsung toner, or are they trying to
fob me off?
Well have you removed the cart and done the tip it about a bit thing? also
does this toner cart also have the drum in it as do the hp ones? often I
understand it is the drum that gets faulty rather than the toner. This
happens if it has the platinum wires that charge it up included as well, as
they get slightly pitted and corroded due to the ozone or something. strange
that hps work so well though, grin.
Do Samsung make their own print engine or just use one off the shelf?
Another funny one is that if the printers are in any damp at all, the toner
seems to absorb his and not work so well.

But at least they don't dry up after a couple of weeks, like inkjet
Are 3rd party laser cartridges for hp laser printers ok? I had variable
(read: bad) quality issues with a couple of different inkjet brands,
and that wasn't due to leaving them to dry out, typically there was
one nozzle blocked, leaving a white stripe on the printout.
