Question about Samsung ML1740 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Paper jam/lockup I'm on my 3rd Samsung in 4 years. Models ML-1710 and MS-1740. After a little over a year, each one fails with a paper jam and the paper stops feeding altogether. My latest (and last one I'm ever gonna buy - I mean it this time :) is starting to make paper jamming/crunching noises. I'm thinking I should try the 12-foot drop-fix. Any other suggestions? :)

Re: Paper jam/lockup

Check to see if the egg-shaped rubber feed roller is cracked. (Pull out the paper tray, it's in the middle at the front on top.) That's what I'm looking for now on the ML-1740. Seems Samsung used cheap rubber for the roller. It should only be a $.50 part if you can find one.

Online error light nothing prints

I have a ML 1710 .Not my area of expertise but I took out the paper and could not see a jam. Took toner out , a little cleaning, plugged and unplugged from computer several times. I found paper jammed in the very back ,folded so tight nothing was showing. Mine has a back door and the paper is having trouble rounding the last bend and coming out. So I leave the back door open to get my copies. Green light on.

How do i get the paper out; it is jammed with 2 pieces.

With firm steady pressure pull the paper out. Take the paper tray out and see if its clear behind it . Open the rear feed and check it also. If necessary remove toner cartridge and check there.

Paper jam

You could try cleaning the tires if you can get to them and check to see if there isn't any paper stuck in the paper path.
