My Samsung CLP 600 Printer is giving an error message that the transfer belt is not installed. I tried a new transfer belt, but still get the error. Tried seating the door snuggly, taking the tranfer belt out and reinstall - nothing worked.

    I have already checked that the latch on the door that opens to install the belt and get to the toners is fully down. I double checked by lifting the latch a little, lifting it did stop the printer from cycling, but re-setting it did not turn the no belt installed error off.

    transfer belt is correctly installed, double checked.

    I think a printer driver problem is a remote possibility. Looking for a solution related to the belt and how the sensor works/how to test or bypass it.

  • dpatter Oct 20, 2008

    The suggestion was to find the side with the three wires on the bottom of the belt transfer unit. The unit does not have exposed wires. There is a sensor on the bottom of one side, and there is some sort of electrical connection one half way up the right side of the transfer unit.

  • dpatter Oct 20, 2008

    The idea of resetting the printer from the menu was a good thought - but I cannot get to the menu - the install belt message error message does not let me get to any other menu. Is there a way to get to the menu, getting past the error message.

  • dpatter Oct 21, 2008

    The comment was - did I change toner cartridges lately. I did, but I don't have the old cartridge to put back in. Why would a toner cartridge change cause a problem with the transfer belt!!! I did put an old black cartridge in the slot for yellow - the most recent cartridge I changed - and that did not change the anything.



    As suggested - I did seat the door and lever firmly - no change there

I'm sure that sensor is defective and such type of sensors are Infra red. You can test sensor's Infra Red LED by any digital camera or mobile phone camera but Photo Sensor test (other part of sensor unit) requires digital meter to check its hi-low status.
Good Luck.

HELLO,

Disconnect the printer from the computer and then uninstall the driver. after uninstalling the driver restart your computer and then reinstall again the printer. if this not work try to verify also the connection components of the printer.

Hi,

Your post is about an error message "INSTALL TRANSFER BELT". Was there a recent change of toner (cartridge)? If, yes, is it an original? If not, pls try temporarily installing the old/original.

Alternately, try pushing the handle (on the side with the cartridge) really hard with a solid snapping action and sound. Sometimes the switch/sensor fails when done slowly/gently.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I know that this might not have any impact on a "not installed" message, but it couldn't hurt to reset the transfer counter if you haven't done that yet. This is the counter that you reset to clear the "replace transfer belt" message.

Menu - Maintainance - Check Others - Transfer Belt - Reset - Reset Now Hope this helps, Chad

Take out the transfer unit and look at the bottom. One side has visible wires. Open the side panel on that side. Follow the 3 wires to a C shaped sensor held in with a screw. Remove the sensor and blow canned air in the slots on the inside of the C. The side plate is about 3 inches long and has the two screws fixing it on. The sensor has a single screw fixing it, but in fact just looks like a black cover plate. Lever it out easilly at the screw end, not the other end which is impossible.

    Ok... Does the sensor look like some kind of optical reflective sensor?

Working of sensor .

The paper is picked up from the tray and advanced to the print zone.An LED shines onto the surface of the paper.The reflection of the light is captured and recognized. This reflection gives the printer information about the paper coating characteristics for the particular paper.This information is compared to a reference table of paper types that the printer has stored internally.Then, based on the information, the printer determines color mapping, half-toning, and number of print passes to produce the best output for the paper being used.The sensing process may add up to five seconds to the print process.

It is because the sensor is not aware that the side is shut. You have to push the handle in (the one used to open the side with the cartridges) as far as it will go to alert the sensor that the side has been shut and the transfer belt is installed and in place.

Invalid transfer belt error on Samaung CLP 600N


This error can arise when the door on the right-hand side of the printer, the part you open in order to replace the toner cartridges, is not correctly closed. Close the top right-hand section first and then close the door on the right-hand side firmly (slamming it if necessary) and then check that all edges look correctly aligned. That should solve the problem. Incorrect shutting of these parts has always been the cause of this error on our Samsung CLP-600N laser printers and we have several of them.

"Lever Unlocking Error" Message


Probably a bad connection between the transfer belt contacts and those inside the machine - clean any dirt/toner off them and make sure they aren't bent out of position and try again.

Samsung 600N transfer belt


I fought the "replace transfer belt" message for quite awhile. Then I finally realized I was trying to close the toner cartridge door BEFORE I closed the lid above it. (The printer was close to a wall so I couldn't see the "open and close in this sequence" signs on the cartridge door.) Once I closed them in the proper order, I stopped seeing that message. Janet

Waste motor error


The wate motor transfers (you guess it) waste toner to the waste toner bottle. If the bottle fills up, the motor cannot transfer more waste to it. This is rare, for the printer should ask for a new waste toner bottle when the previous one fills. However,it happens frequently when users try to empty and clean the bottle instead of replacing it.

If a new waste toner bottle is in place, then the printer needs a new motor, which can only be purchased through an Authorized Service Center.
