My current working theory is that someone has tried to flash the machine
with a modified firmware to allow third party toner cartridges but
either failed to do it properly or the firmware has been botched. I
understand that there was a black market for such things for these machines.

I have tried to find a stock firmware for the machine and was lead here:


...which appears to be a support dump from when HP acquired Samsung's
printer division.
Conspicuous by its absence are any files related to this particular
machine :(

If anyone has any ideas where I might look for the stock firmware for
the SCX-4100 then I would be much obliged.
