Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer
My printer does print, but jams everytime at exit. The paper just scrunches up and doesn't come out so I open the top and pull it out all scrunched up. It has trouble rolling out. How can I fix this?
This happened with an old HP Laserjet 1100A of mine.
I had apparently dropped a screw in the paper-out slot and it was jamming the paper on just one spot.
As you know, the entire sheet is connected, so It is most likely a similar situation in which a previous jam has left a small wad of paper under one of the rollers, and this is preventing the paper from exiting the slot.
Best bet, print something and see where the paper is scrunching up. This is most likely the roller that has the paper stuck under it. Remove the toner block and blast some compressed air into the spot the jam is most likely originating and see if anything else flys out.
Also, if that does not work, you might try manually rotating the rollers backwards, which will often eject the lodged paper chunk.
Note- Please be careful inside the printer! Do not touch the bright green drum, or anything that dosen't look like it is rubber and rolls paper around!
It is very easy to mess things up in there ;)

Clearing paper jam in a printer is simple almost seven step
procedure depending on the printer. Paper jam is the term used to refer to the
scenario where your paper fails to come out of the printer during the print
process. When you send a document to the printer, normally the printer prints
out the document on a paper; then you can pick up your printed copy. When the
paper gets stuck in the printer, it is said that paper has jammed in the
printer "paper jam".
Even if you are not a technical person, you can conveniently
clear paper jams. All you need is to follow the set of procedures outlined
Put off the printer and unplug it from its power source.
Open all the covers/shutters on the printer (usually you will find one in the front or top and one at the back of the printer).
(If the printer is a DeskJet, otherwise ignore this step) Now pull out the cartridge carefully and place it on safe surface. (Be careful not to place it where it may slide and fall. This could damage the cartridge)
Site the paper that has jammed and pull it out in the opposite direction of its movement. Do not pull in the direction it was coming out. (Pulling the paper in the opposite direction is important for the printer's mechanism. Printer must be off). Never pull out paper from a printer when the printer is powered on.
(If the printer is a DeskJet, otherwise ignore this step) Return the cartridge gently and press it firmly inside so that you here it snap inside.
Close all covers at the top, front or back.
Power on your printer and you should be able to print again.
Good luck and God bless!
