First released in September 2009, the Samsung SCX-5935 printers are based on a 33ppm, 600dpi engine (4,800 x 4,800 Enhanced). The first page out is rated at under 8.5 seconds, and the monthly duty cycle is up to 80,000 pages. These printers can Print, copy, scan, and fax. They come standard with 4Mb of memory which is upgradeable by adding in a backup hard disk. Duplexing also comes standard.
These cartridges do not have a drum cover, and come new with a piece of heavy paper with foam glued to it taped around the cartridge.
They also now come with a shipping lock that holds the PCR off the drum preventing flat spots on the PCR. (See Figures B & C) New PCR holders now fit through the shell of the cartridge so that the shipping lock can fit into them.
There are both LY (4,000 pages) and HY (10,000 pages) cartridges available. Each version of cartridge has its own specific chip. The LY can easily be converted to a HY by adding the correct amount of toner and using the correct chip. The chip covers are held in place by plastic rivets. To replace the chip, the rivets need to be cut off, holes carefully drilled, (not too deep or the cartridge will leak), and screws installed.
The printers as well as the cartridges are listed below.
MLT-D206S (4,000 pages)
MLT-D206L (10,000 pages)

30) Clean out all the toner from the hopper.
It is interesting to note that on new cartridges, some toner is in the waste hopper. Apparently these cartridges are being tested before they are shipped, or the drum was lubricated with toner.
31) Coat the new wiper blade with your preferred lubricant. Install the new wiper blade and two screws. The tail of the wiper blade should face up.
32) Clean the PCR with your preferred PCR cleaner.
WARNING: Do not clean the OEM PCR with alcohol, as this will remove the conductive coating from the roller. If the PCR is an aftermarket, follow the cleaning methods recommended by the manufacturer. If the PCR is an OEM, we recommend it be cleaned with your standard PCR cleaner.
33) Clean the old conductive grease off the PCR shaft and contact. Replace with new.
34) Install the PCR by sliding the long shaft side through the non-contact side. Bring it back to fit into the contact side.
