Make sure the paper guides are not too tight and always fan the paper to rid static build-up before loading.

Re: Samsung CLP 550N paper jams

Your printer accepts a variety of print materials, such as cut- sheet paper (including up to 100% recycled fiber content paper), envelopes, labels, transparencies and custom-size paper. Properties, such as weight, composition, grain and moisture content, are important factors affecting the printer?s performance and the output quality. Paper that does not meet the guidelines outlined may cause paper to get jam.

The paper keeps jamming in our Samsung laser printer 660 nd. We bought heavier paper for a laser printer but it still jams.

The ideal paper is around 80 GSM (gm2) if you are having problems with a BRAND NEW REAM of standard copy paper then your printer will need service.

paper that is thicker/heavier than this can actually cause more jams and problems and show worn out rollers earlier

These printers only tend to jam at the entry (pickup) near the base of the printer or in the fuser unit (hot area near the top)

if you are getting jams in multi page documents, have a look at which area the most crumpled piece of paper is in before you try and remove it.

the pick up rollers and separation pads are relatively cheap but the fuser units can be a bit pricey.

It wont print, says paper jam, yet there is no paper stuck anywhere? any suggestions?


Try removing the cartridges and drum and clean the big grey roller as this picks up paper and if not it will show a paper jam without paper being in the machine!

Good Luck!

My Samsung CLP 315w refuses to print a whole A4 page. Stops half way then message comes up paper jam but when I open back / front, paper not jammed and when I close it document continues printing then...


most likly hood is your exit sensor is faulty. The printer work in this way. if it does not print out all the document. it will print again. that is why you kept getting this same issue after a jam open and close door it will print again.

replace the exit sensor it will help.

My piece of cardstock paper keeps jamming barely out of the tray. is there something i can do to have it go all the way through. I have a samsung clp-315 laser printer.

Yes, you have to change the print properties on the computer to let the printer know it is using cardstock. Please refer to the owners manual to get the information. The manual can be found at under the support section.

Paper jam in tray 1

Hi glenpcr,

I had the same problem and solved it.
At my printer it was a problem of the MP-tray (multi purpose tray).
There are two hinges which keep the open MP-tray in a horizontal position. One of this hinges was broken and I just received it.
Just try it.

Paper Jam in CLP-550

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud
