How to Reset the Chip of Samsung SCX-4300 Printer by Software
The Samsung SCX-4300 is a multifunction printer that can print, scan and copy documents. However, some users may encounter a problem when the printer displays a message saying \"Toner Exhausted\" or \"Replace Toner\" even though the toner cartridge is not empty. This is because the printer has a chip that counts the number of pages printed and stops working when it reaches a certain limit.
Fortunately, there is a way to reset the chip of the Samsung SCX-4300 printer by using a software tool called FIX SCX4300 V122 Fact Romdlhd. This tool can modify the firmware of the printer and make it ignore the chip's count. Here are the steps to use this tool:
Download the FIX SCX4300 V122 Fact Romdlhd tool from one of these links[^1^] [^2^] [^3^]. The tool contains five files: SCX4300_V1.21_Fact_romdl.hd, download21.bat, usbprns2.exe, fix21.bat and fix4300.exe.
Extract the files to a folder on your computer, such as C:\\scx4300fw121.
Connect your Samsung SCX-4300 printer to your computer via USB cable and turn it on.
Open the folder where you extracted the files and double-click on fix21.bat. A command prompt window will open and run some commands.
Wait for the window to close and then double-click on download21.bat. Another command prompt window will open and run some commands.
Wait for the window to close and then turn off your printer and disconnect it from your computer.
Turn on your printer again and check if the toner message is gone. You should be able to print normally now.
Note: This method may void your warranty and may damage your printer if not done correctly. Use it at your own risk.
