what does the chip of a toner cartridge do? Does it count how much toner has in it? how can it calculate the remaining? I would like to know more about what the toner cartridges chip do and how they do work. I am interested particularly for the models mentioned above.

Smart chip is a small chip that some printer manufacturers put into their inkjet or toner cartridges.  It lets printer cartridge and printer communicate and informs the user before the cartridge runs out of ink / toner.

It has everything you need to know:-)

To be honest i wouldn't have a clue on how to disable the chip, but with all due respect, i wouldnt even attempt to do that! the manufacturer might have a few issues with you doing that in terms of the warrantee. Rather let a aurthorised person do it and if their is a mess up, your printer will still be covered.

i agree with you about the warranty. i need to know in order to make some decisions regarding the specific model. consumables of the machine are incredibly expensive in europe. consider the same cartridge being sold, retail, in us for $429 and in several places in europe the same product is upto
512 euro (~$704) even for large quantities, kinda bad joke, don't u think?
