Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

Chronic paper jams

Ever since I bought this printer a year ago my daughter complains of constant paper jams which occurs about 85 percent of the time she attempts to print something. It is very frustrating and I can't seem to fix it for her.

    Same issue, sucks up paper then says there is a 'jam' even though there is not. Seems to be way to hot, possible overheating?

If it appears to start printing sucks up a sheet a little way and then stops red light on etc try the waste toner trick. I was plagued by this problem for ages then took out the waste toner container sucked out the dust with a vacuum cleaner stuck it back no more jams. It is less a jam than the thing just getting an error from the waste toner. The other thing could be the paper feed roller. There is a rubber on this that grips the paper and feeds it if it is worn then the paper wont feed. I flipped it over kind of turning it inside out to get a fresh smooth side that will grip and feed the paper. If you are a little dextrous then it isnt a difficult job. Had two of these and problems on paper feed with both. The toner is expensive the waste container at a tenner is a ridiculous price. Still the second one was bought as it was cheaper to get the whole printer with toner than a 4 colour toner pack, I use it for spares! email if you want to try the feed roller trick.

Paper jam, Is this the fuser?

I have had the same problem. Changing the fuser is easy (about $85, and must be ordered through Dell) remove the 4 screws from the back, and you'll see the fuser. 2 screws, and 2 wires, and it slides right out.

Check solinoid transformers that controls opening and closing of paper handling trays. Check and clean sensors from in and out of paper path. Check and clean paper rollers or heat rollers for dust and paper remains pieces. Please determine when is the paper jams occurs. Hope this gives you hints.
