  1. I did the same process, my toners are the orginal with no chip except the black but its orginal, after i did what you said the hack process failed
    pages printed
    239/338

    1. Try this, just disconnect the connection as soon as you see the green light.
      DO exactly as he does, you will se three red blinks, then a green light will come on, break the connection and wait for the process to finish.
      I tried this method with my clp315 and it worked.

      1. Thank you for your sujestion…
        I also could not do the reset the way it is mentionated in the article…
        however i need to do this every time i restart the printer (hold reset switch untill green light turns on and release it next)
        Maybe Samsung made some firmware fix to resolve this flaw?

        1. Edit:

          It worked!
          With your method i waited untill green light whent on and immediately after it went green released the connection…
          My mistake was that i was jumping the test print page right to the configuration report!
          That way it seemed reset but after restart only black toner cartridge was 100% and all others whore back to original percentage…
          So to make it work in my printer i had to, after the long boot up, print(as described by the author) the “test print page” by holding down for too seconds the stop button until light flashes slowly,page is printed,then hold down stop button untill green light flashes fast that makes it print “configuration report” restarted and voila all toner cartridges at 100%!!!
          Thank you so much.
          Time to go buy some toner!

    2. Hi, this problem is quite easy to solve!
      I´ve got an CLP 315 USB
      with mix of Original refill with original chips and lowbudget refill with replaced chips:

      Put a Tape over the contakts of all chips,
      connect cable as described to ground,
      restart and wait until initialized,
      disconnect cabel from ground,
      restart again and wait until initialized,
      initialization always takes about 30 seconds and more,
      print out Data Sheet,
      All should be set to zero
      Good Luck!!!!!

  2. Brian,
    I am having a hard time trying to solder the connection. I am afraid i am just going to melt the chip. I can see yours is also sort of melted. but how did you do it?

    1. He hasn’t melted the chip. It might be flux leftovers your seeing. When you solder it’s important to add some solder to the tip of the soldering iron. This is what conducts the heat. If you try and heat up a joint/pad with a “dry” tip, the heat will be transfered inefficiently.

    2. Hey I used to have issues soldering or re-soldering. I’ve found that if you use a fresh soldering tip and a drop of flux on the old solder it melts super quick.

      Hope this helps.

  3. We have the wireless and Ethernet version. When we did this we had to release the grounding after the green light turned on. However, the printer lost it Mac address, and now will not connect wirelessly. It still works through the Ethernet connection. I would recommend disconnecting the wireless card before doing this. Don’t know if that will help or not, but it is worth a try. Will post if we figure out how to get it to work again.

    thanks for everything all !!!

  5. Most important thing to be kept in mind when working with soldering iron is not to touch the tip of the iron as it is extremely hot. Soldering material used for the purpose is an alloy of tin and lead and is called flux. Before you put solder over the required area, heat up the surface to be soldered by touching the tip of the hot iron. Application of the solder is called “tinning”since percentage of tin is more in the flux. However, flux can be of various types depending upon the things to be soldered. `

  6. I tried this today after searching long and hard for answers to this problem, and have had 0 luck. I’ve checked continuity to make sure I have a good connection to ground, the solder joints are fine, but it doesn’t work. When I hold the button down (either till the green light, or through the whole boot process), it always makes ALL the toner lights go red, almost like it’s maxing them out instead of zeroing them. I have to reset the printer again, and same thing as before, no reset copy counts, none of it. I have gotten the demo page several times and it acts like it’s reset, for everything but the copy count. I’m ready to just throw 12 of these pieces of junk in the trash.

    1. What model number and firmware revision are you working with? Also, is your motherboard layout the same as the one pictured above? There are some reports of pin 1 of the EEPROM being in a different spot on some boards.

    2. Also, do your toner cartridges have chips in them? If so, you will need to put tape over the contacts (and leave it there) as I think it stores a count as well.

  7. I just want to thank you very much to creator of the video, hear is how my page reset went on Samsung CLP 315W.
    I happen to have wire with locking band so I locked the one end of the wire to ground wire in printer where other wires were grounded, , other end I hold the wire on chip rather then soldering on chip as I started printer, first I tried holding through entire booting process of printer, but that did not work, so next time I just hold the wire only until green light came on printer and it worked.
