    Printer jams every time, pulling paper only 1/3 page in and stops with red lamp on, after opening the cover and close paper comes out flat but printed in mirror and not complete. Printer gets very hot, I think more than as it was new. When it is very hot then the printer prints sometime print normal in good quality.

    Paper will not feed and there is no jam - only a few months old - frustrated

  • russjones Jan 19, 2009

    Exactly the same problem - paper traps 1/3 way in every time

    I can eventually get it to print but bizarrely only by squeezing the back drop down panel against the  printer and then it works - internittently.

    My printer jams every time.  I followed the answer given by one of your email and pressed the tray and back at same time and it did print.  I don't  want todo this every time though so any other help would be great.

I had this problem during warranty. The Samsung Service came to me and replaced a rubber transport belt at the first shaft. He said that it was probably a bad series of the rubber. The print is stopped because the paper is transported too late, so the print is shifted to the top of the paper. I think cleaning of this rubber will help. Take out the paper, you will find the rubber transport roller (it not perfectly round) in the middle from below the printer.
Best Regards

Paper will not feed

Check if a piece of paper is still left from the paper jam. Sometimes pieces of paper get stuck behind the feeder roller if the paper is torn while removing the jammed paper

You may need to empty the excess toner bottle, it's in the front, to the left side.

Clp300 paper jamming

Section one is usually the bypass ( the front tray that you have to open the door)
it is trying to print from there
otherwise clean the tires in the tray area with alcohol, they probably contain dust and the paper is slipping.

Printing jammed on thicker paper

See the manual. It looks as if 120g/m2 is the heaviest paper it can use:
"Set Type to correspond to the paper loaded in the tray from
which you want to print. This will let you get the best quality
printout. If not, print quality may not be acheived as you want.
Thin: Less than 19 lb (70 g/m2) thin paper.
Thick: 24 lb to 32 lb (90~120 g/m2) thick paper.
Cotton: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) cotton paper such as Gilbert
25 % and Gilbert 100 %.
Plain Paper: Normal plain paper. Select this type if your printer is
monochrome and printing on the 16 lb (60 g/m2) cotton paper.
Recycled: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) recycled paper.
Color Paper: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) color-backgrounded
