Reset Guide Ver. 16 - Summit Laser Products

SUMMIT Technologies
Cartridge/Machine Reset Guide Version 16
Now with HP & Lexmark common chip error codes!
By Mike Josiah
Welcome to the 16th version of our Reset Guide!
This guide continues to expand (sometimes on a
daily basis), and it will continue to expand for the
for-seeable future. Although most machines these
days are chip based, some still use the machine
menu to reset the counter. As for the chip based
machines, it basically comes down to if the chip
stops that cartridge from printing or allows the
cartridge to print but disables the toner low circuitry.
We have tried to include this information where ever
possible. New in this version, we have also included
common chip error codes and their explanations.
Sometimes what is perceived to be a chip error can
be something else. Codes for HP and Lexmark
machines have been included. Rather than copy
them for every HP and Lexmark engine, we have
included a generic listing at the beginning of both
the HP and Lexmark section. Only if there is a
specific machine error code will there be anything
under the actual engine.
If you have information not listed here, please
contact Mike Josiah at
mjosiah@summitechnologies.com so it can be
included in the next version.

included it here because all of the other Brother
engines DO have some sort of reset procedure.

OEM Stated Yield: 2,000
These cartridges have a color wheel that indicates
the approximate amount of toner left in the cartridge.
This wheel does not actually stop the machine; it
only gives the user a visual indication. The wheel
assy. consists of a small gear train that drives a
geared color wheel. The gear assembly is calibrated
for 5% pages, so it is very possible that you have an
empty cartridge with a green wheel showing, or a
half full cartridge with a red wheel showing. It all
depends on how much toner is used per page.
To reset the counter, remove the clear cover from the
counter by releasing the 4 tabs. Carefully remove the
small gear next to the color wheel and turn the wheel
so that the notched area is up. Insert the small gear
so that the teeth of both the small gear and the wheel

on. If you slip and the small gears jump out of place,
just alternate them from the middle to one side. The
opposite side is empty. It doesn’t matter which side
you choose.

same chip is used, the decision must be made by the
machine not the cartridge.

pages. The machine will show “Replace Drum” at
50,000 pages or when the waste toner section is full.

Canon PC-Mini
Canon Cartridge
Part # (A-30)
OEM Stated Yield: 3,000
These cartridges have a color wheel that indicates
the approximate amount of toner left in the cartridge.
This wheel does not actually stop the machine it
only gives the user a visual indication. The wheel
Assy. consists of a small gear train that drives a
geared color wheel. The gear assembly is calibrated
5
for 5% pages, so it is very possible that you have an
empty cartridge with a green wheel showing, or a
half full cartridge with a red wheel showing. It all
depends on how much toner is used per page.
To reset the counter, grasp the color wheel in your
right hand, the gear assembly in your left. While
bending the wheel down, turn the wheel away from
you until it stops. You will hear a slight grinding.
That is fine as long as the wheel turns fairly easily. If
the wheel is hard to turn, you are not bending the
wheel down far enough and may damage the gears.
This can also be done by removing the cover,
removing the gear next to the wheel, and resetting
the wheel gear

Part # F100 (F41-9921)
OEM Stated Yield: 10,000
If the "Replace Cartridge" light is still lit in the
display after replacing the cartridge, the customer
can follow the steps below to reset the copier. This
procedure should be done every time the cartridge is
replaced:
Hold down the "A" (Automatic Exposure) key for
approximately four (4) seconds or longer.
After approximately four (4) seconds have elapsed,
"UC" appears in the Copy quantity/Copy ratio
display. Press the "Start" key. "UC" will flash for
about 20 seconds in the Copy quantity/Copy ratio
display. The copier will automatically perform a
toner distribution operation, and then you will return
to the normal copying mode.
NOTE: - Be sure to press the "A" key after
replacing each cartridge. If you do not, your first
few copies will not be clear copy images or the
Replace Cartridge indicator may light. If either of
these two problems occurs, press the main unit
power switch to OFF and then to ON again.
Afterwards, perform the above steps.
If copies are too dark or too light after you have
replaced the cartridge, open the front door and adjust
the copy exposure using the exposure re-calibration
slide control switch.

These cartridges have an ARD installed on the left

connector, which can easily be changed. It would
seem that HP or Canon has plans to recycle these
cartridges. Even though they look the same, the
programming on these chips is different from the
HP-8500.
New reset chips are now available to reset these
cartridges. Drums and chips should be sold as a set
as the chip contains information about the drum
sensitivity. These cartridges also have windows that
work with an optical sensor inside the printer that
determines if the waste chamber is full or not. It is
more than likely that if the waste chamber fills up,
the machine will shut down. We are not sure if the
cartridge waste chamber is cleaned out, it will
continue to run until the chip finishes its page count.
The Canon version of this printer is the CLBP460PS. The chip also contains information on the
characteristics of the drum that is used during the
calibration sequence.

an optical sensor inside the printer that determines if
the waste chamber is full or not. It is more than
likely that if the waste chamber fills up, the machine
will shut down. We are not sure if the cartridge
waste chamber is cleaned out, it will continue to run

Toshiba, IBM, and Dell are also using this engine.
Make sure your replacement chip is universal or
brand specific if using in these machines. On the
Non-“Return” cartridges however, the chip is also
present, but the killer part is not active. These
cartridges can be re-manufactured as much as you
want, the chip will not interfere. The “T520/522”,
“T620/622”, T630, T640 Series and Optra T/SE
series all use different chips. None are
interchangeable. The SHY 32K cartridge is
designed to work ONLY in the T644 machines.
The “Return” cartridges have an ARD installed on
the right side of the cartridge, (as the cartridge would
be inserted into the machine). These chips are
physically located in same spot as the T520/T620
chips. Other vendors such as Toshiba, IBM, and Dell
are also using this engine. Make sure your

These cartridges use a chip, but it is not the “Killer

as tell the machine the brand of cartridge it is. So far
we have seen Lexmark, Epson, and IBM machines
using these cartridges. The chips for each brand are
different. Initial tests show that the chip can be reused for at least one cycle with no issues. Testing is
still ongoing.

On the gear side of the cartridge there is a large

OKIDATA DRUM
CARTRIDGES
Okidata over the years has released a lot of
printers/fax machines all with different engines.
Unfortunately almost all of them require a different
reset procedure. In fact even some of the machines
that use the same engine have different reset
procedures! The following procedures are grouped
by the Engine, (underlined), and then by the machine
model number/s. The machine model numbers are
also in a slightly smaller point size. The first “OL”
23
engine is the Okidata OL-400/800, but the first
actual reset procedure is for the OL-800 series only,
followed by other machines that use the same engine
but have different reset procedures. Just to make
things a little crazier, there are also machines that
use different engines, but use the same reset
procedure. These are grouped as above, but with a
note that says what other machines also use that
procedure.
Hopefully this will help clear up some of the
confusion on what procedures to use.

Both of these cartridges use a simple 1/16 amp fuse

sold are in a resistor type package. The physical
looks of the fuse don't matter as long as it is 1/16

4450 OPC cartridge.

black transistor. Most of the replacement fuses being
sold are in a resistor type package. The physical
looks of the fuse don't matter as long as it is 1/16
Amp-fast blow. This is the same fuse as used in the

The reset gear in the Ricoh Aficio 200 OPC
cartridge has a different purpose than most reset
mechanisms. Most resets set the cartridge page count
back to zero. In the Aficio 200, it lets the machine
know that a new cartridge has been installed. The
machine then takes readings from its sensors to
measure the charge of the developer and drum. From
those readings it sets up the density for that drum
unit.
If the gear is not reset, the machine will continue to
think the old cartridge is installed, and use the old
settings. This usually causes either light prints, or
backgrounding.
It is also important to note that the replacement
aftermarket developer was designed to work with the
replacement drum as a matched system. In our tests,
the OEM drum will not last another cycle.

These are the first Samsung cartridges to use a chip.
The chips can sometimes be used another cycle, but
to be safe it is best to replace them each cycle. There
are different manufacturers using this engine. Each
manufacturer has it’s own separate chip. Reset boxes
are available to reset the OEM as well as aftermarket
chips. Some reset boxes will also allow the change
from one manufacturer to another.

Both of these cartridges use different items to reset
the printer. The toner cartridge uses a chip that must
be replaced/reset each cycle. There are different
manufacturers using this engine. Each manufacturer
has it’s own separate chip, even Samsung has
different versions. Make sure you have the correct

Drum Cartridge: This cartridge uses a fuse to reset
the printer. The fuse is located on the gear side of the
cartridge. Starter cartridges do not have a fuse, but
the holder is there. The fuse must be replaced each
cycle. The fuse is a 250V 5 x 20mm 63mA fuse.
Make sure you have the correct fuse or printer

Sharp AL-1000/Xerox XD-100 Toner
Cartridges
Sharp Cart. # AL-100TD, Xerox Cart. # 6R914
OEM Stated Yield: 6,000
The standard AL-100TD, and 6R914 cartridges are
not interchangeable. They have Oblong tabs on the
backside of the cartridges that are in different
locations. These tabs block the use of one brand in
the others machine. They can be made to be
interchangeable by cutting off the tabs, and sealing
up the hole. See our cartridge recycling instructions
for detailed information. These cartridges also do not
have any type of reset. There is a sensor inside the
cartridge that measures the mixture of toner to
developer. As long as there is enough toner for a
good mixture level, the toner lamp will stay off.
There are no page counters or “Killer Chips” for
these cartridges.
There are other versions of these cartridges however
that do have “Killer Chips”. The following are the
current Sharp AL-1000 Engine based cartridges that
also have the chips in them.
Samsung SF-830 Toner Cartridges
Samsung Cart. # SCX-5312D6
OEM Stated Yield: 7,500
These cartridges do not use a chip or any type of
reset. They are included here because they use a
resistor to tell the machine what brand it is. Samsung
cartridges have a 30k Ohm resistor, where Xerox
cartridges have a 12k Ohm resistor. If you are
getting an “Invalid Cartridge” message, the wrong
resistor is installed. These resistors do not go bad,
and should never need to be replaced unless you are
Sharp AR-150 Toner
Sharp Cartridge Part # AR-150TD
OEM Stated Yield: 6,000
These cartridges use the same supplies to recycle as
the AL-1000 (XD-100) cartridges. The difference is
that the oblong tab on the back side if the cartridge is
placed differently, and the cartridge has a “killer
chip” that shuts the machine down after 10,000
33
pages. These cartridges are designed to be recycled
by Sharp authorized dealers. As such, replacement
chips are available from authorized Sharp dealers,
and now generic chips are also available. Since the
chip shuts down the cartridge at 10,000 pages, you
can recycle the cartridge 2-3 times with the same
chip with out any problems. However, even if you
just recycled the cartridge, once the page count
reaches 10,000, you will need to replace the chip. To
make matters even more confusing, it seems that
non-network (Copier Only) machines do not need
the chip installed at all! We think (but have not yet
been able to confirm), that replacing the chip every
cycle will prevent the machine from shutting down.
That is an increase in cost, but that way you don’t
have to track the usage on your customer’s machine,
or for that matter, the type of machine they have.
The chip is installed in the back of the connector on
the cartridge.

Unlike the other chips in this series, this chip shuts
down the cartridge after the first cycle so it will be
necessary to replace it each time. Replacement chips
for these cartridges are now available. These
cartridges also differ in that the “Oblong Tab” on the
back of the cartridge has it’s own unique location.

Xerox Part # 6R972
OEM Stated Yield: 6,000
Starter cartridges do not have a chip installed.
The WorkCentre Pro 16 cartridges also use a chip,
but in this case the chip does not seem to shut the
machine down right away. This seems to work the
same as the Sharp AR-150; it can be recycled 2-3
times before the chip shuts the cartridge down.
Replacement chips for these cartridges are now
available. These cartridges differ from the others in
that the “Oblong Tab” on the back of the cartridge
has it’s own unique location. In addition to the tab,
the Waste Chamber is also different. It has a
different shape, and is held on by one screw at the
top, and a plastic tab on the bottom. The chip is
installed in the back of the connector on the
cartridge.

Both of the above cartridges are different, and not
interchangeable but the reset procedures are the
same. (These procedures are the same for the XC800/Z-835 copier OPC cartridges). These cartridges
are the most popular. There are also other cartridges
that use the same supplies, but are physically
different. There are tabs on the top of the cartridge
that block installation into another brand copier.
These tabs are different for each cartridge type.
If the cartridge is not a "Starter cartridge", there are
two white gears inside the green end cap. On the
large white gear, remove the clip ring and turn the
gear back to the start position. (This is so the
34
actuator (or flag) is next to the small gear). On some
cartridges the "flag gear" is now black. It is located
to the bottom right of the white gear. Make sure that
when you snap the green end cap back on, the notch
on the small gear lines up with the tab on the large
single gear that is on the cartridge. Once everything
lines up, snap the end cap in place. This is tricky,
take your time!

expecting. 001=113R180/181, 005 = 113R287.
If the cartridges your machine needs is not available,
you can change what type of cartridge the machine
will accept by doing the following. Enter the
diagnostics mode as in above. Enter “406 “ and press
Print. Turn off the power and install the correct
cartridge. The machine will now look for that type of
cartridge from now on. Only do this if you are sure
that you will be supplying the cartridges for this
machine. If the customer goes out and purchases the
“correct” cartridge that was made for his machine, it
will no longer work until the above procedure is run
again.

cartridge)
This engine has more non-interchangeable cartridges
than any engine I have ever seen. All of them use an
"ARD" that is built into the connector. Almost every
type of cartridge has it's own individual ARD. Since
every individual cartridge has it’s own chip, it is
imperative that you have the OEM cartridge part
number when ordering the chips! The reset boards
are now available with the plastic housing so that
soldering the chip in is no longer necessary. There
are also services where you can have the old chip
reset. There are still cartridges that do not have
replacement chips available yet. These are mainly
international, but not all.
To reset the counter in the DC 220/230/240 OPC
cartridges the connector on the rear of the cartridge
must be replaced. This will clear the J1 or J7 codes.
J1= Toner Out, J7 = Change cartridge
There are many different cartridges that use different
connectors/chips for these machines. A list of them
is as follows:
DC220/230/420 Type A: 113R120, 113R178,
113R276DC220/230/420 Type B: 113R179,
113R275
DC220/230/420 Type C: 113R313
DC332/340 Type A: 113R315, 113R317
DC332/340 Type B: 113R316
Each cartridge type is for a different machine. When
ordering the replacement chip, make sure you know
the correct cartridge part number that your
customer’s machine calls for. The chips are not
interchangeable.

Xerox P8E (Samsung FS-5000
Engine)
OEM Stated Yield: 5,000 (Except for Lexmark
13T0101: 6,000)
There are 3 main versions of this cartridge so far.
The Xerox Docuprint P8e 113R296/100R364,
WorkCentre 385 113R 296, and the Lexmark Optra
E310/312 NOTE: Lexmark has replaced the
12A2202 (5k) cartridge with the 13T0101 (6k)
cartridge. The new cartridge works in both
machines.
When recycling these cartridges the fuse must be
replaced in the Xerox cartridges. The Lexmark
cartridges have a plastic dummy fuse in it. There has
been some conflicting information on if the fuse
should be replaced or not, the following should help
to clear it up. If the machine says toner low and the
42
cartridge is changed. A new fuse is not needed.
However if the machine says change cartridge, the
fuse is needed. Since you really have no way to
know the state of your customer’s machine, we
recommend that the fuse be replaced each cycle.
These fuses are very inexpensive, and this way you
have no worries! Starter cartridges can come with
plastic dummy fuses. Those fuses must be replaced
with a real fuse. The fuse is a 125V, 100mA,
5x20mm fast acting glass type.
This cartridge uses an optical reset similar to the
Panasonic 4410. The waste chamber must be
spotless, and the float in the down position. There is
a clear plastic bubble on top of the cartridge. This is
what the sensor looks at and it must be spotless! The
J7 code is triggered when the waste chamber fills up
and moves the float into the bubble, interrupting the
optical sensor.
Xerox XC-23/33 OPC
13R546
OEM Stated Yield: 30,000
To reset the counter in the XC-23 OPC cartridges the
connector on the rear of the cartridge must be
replaced. This will clear the J7 or J8 codes. J7=
change copy cartridge, J8 = wrong or bad connector.
New replacement connectors are not currently
available, but there are companies that can repair the
OEM connector for you.
Xerox 4525
113R00195 (Lexmark W820)
OEM Stated Yield: 30,000
To reset the counter in the 4525 and Lexmark W820
cartridges the connector on the rear of the cartridge
must be replaced. This will clear the J1 or J7 codes.
J1= Toner Out, J7 = Change cartridge. The
connector and cartridges look similar to the N24
style, but they are different, and NOT
interchangeable.
Xerox 1012 OPC
13R8, 113R92
OEM Stated Yield: 18,000
The 1012 OPC cartridges look very similar to the
5011 and 5012, but they are different and NOT
interchangeable.
There are now many different Xerox part numbers
for these cartridges. They are interchangeable, just
sold from different sources. A list of some of them is
as follows: 13R8 (US), 13R10, 13R30, 113R92
(Retail Stores), and 13R500.
Xerox 5011 OPC
Xerox cartridge Part # 13R44
OEM Stated Yield: 18,000
The 5011 OPC cartridges look very similar to
the1012 and 5012, but they are different and NOT
interchangeable.
These cartridges use a reset fuse board located inside
the connector. The connector must be un-soldered
and a new one soldered in. Be very careful not to
melt the cable when soldering. Make sure that you
43
use the correct connector. The 5012 will not work in
the 5011 and vice-versa. To tell if you have the
correct connector, read the resistance between pin’s
3 & 6. 5011 connectors read 15,000 ohms while
5012 connectors read 1,500 ohm
Xerox 5012/5014 OPC

Xerox 5018 OPC
Xerox Cartridge Part # 13R9
OEM Stated Yield: 18-22,000 (Depends on
Machine)
There are a variety of cartridges now available for
these machines. They all use the same supplies.
13R9, 13R74(US), 113R161 (Retail) 113R93
(Missing Internal Counter), 13R13(RX),
13R18(XLA), 13R505 (XCL).
The 5334 cartridges appear similar but are different.
They still use the same supplies to recycle, but they
do not have a reset counter installed inside. They
also have an extra tab on the back side of the
cartridge that stops the cartridge from being installed
completely in a 5018 machine. The cartridges used
in these machines are the 13R67 (US), 13R68
(RX/XL), 13R69 (XLA), 13R520 (XCL). These
machines are basically set up to “run for
life” in other words, the drum cartridge is run until
there is a problem. At that point another cartridge is
installed, and the machine continues to print. There
is no reset involved.
A code (J2) may show on the 5624, and 5824
machines, to clear it do the following: Enter the
diagnostics by holding the ”0” while turning on the
machine. Enter “9”, PRINT, “50”, PRINT. This will
start the machine up and clear the J2 code.
Information on these machines is still a little vague
as we are still in the learning process.
The 5018 OPC cartridge must be disassembled so
that you have access to the mechanical counter. New
OEM replacement belts are now available making
any Xerox machine warranty issues hard to enforce.
Turn the cartridge so that the Counter is in front of
you. On the left side of the counter, there are two
white levers. While pressing both of the levers
down, turn the large black gear
backwards,(Clockwise). Stop when the green or
knurled section of the gear is visible through the
small hole in the cover. (You must loosely place the
cover over the Waste Chamber; the hole is located
under the J2 label. Once this gear is in position,
release both of the levers. At this point you should
not be able to turn the large black gear. If you can,
press down both levers and turn the gear one or two
more "clicks" until the gear is locked. The two
White Levers should stay flat.

appear similar, they are not. The Sharp cartridges do
not have a counter (they are reset through the menu),
and the gears are different.
Xerox 5316/5317 OPC
Xerox Cartridge Part # 13R54
These cartridges have two small fuses that must be
replaced each cycle. The old fuses must be unsoldered from the circuit board on the connector, and
the new soldered in. Be very careful not to damage
the board with too much heat.
