Question about Samsung CLP-500 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Poor color printing

My printer was stored for about a year and I recently brought it out to use it. It worked perfectly before storage and now the colors are light and not very crisp. The black text is perfectly crisp and deep. The Toner Check shows that each of the colors is over 60% and that the black is at 33% (which has the best performance anyway). I have shaken (redistributed) the toner cartridges and reinstalled with no noticable change. Please help.

Sound like the printer need a good cleaning. including the toner opening.
The toner may be expired. as the color pigment deteriorated with age.
usual color pigment store in a dry and cool place can last 2 years, if lefted out in the printer, it may only give you max 1 year.

You get 1 year warranty from Brother, 90 days on refurbished models, you will need a new printhead which runs over $100.00 with labor on top of that. The serial number has the manuf. date and if you got a good price for the demo model I would call Brother and tell them your problem, and not that it was a demo model.

Erratic black fusing


I'm not real sure about how the software separates the colors, but I believe there's a way to choose a color as all colors combined to make black, or simple black. 

I'm not sure if I'm making any sense, but if the printer is using all the colors to layer up and make black, then it would be a pretty thick coating and that might cause it to flake off.

Look around thoroughly in the Printers > Properties tabs. While in the shop, they have no doubt tested your computer (without your printer hooked up). Try letting your computer boot up without the printer, then with printer power on, plug in the USB cable.

Perhaps your printer is "offline." If so, right click on your printer's name in control panel. Choose "Use printer online".

Color cartridge in Deskjet Cse is printing pink...Why?


Refilling is all right. I do it all the time! If the cartridge sits for a long time, the ink will dry up on the tiny jets. You may try wiping them with a cloth dampened with water and then running through a purge cycle on the printer. If that doesn't work, then you should go ahead and get it refilled.

Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos


Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.
