Question about Samsung ML 2010 Laser Printer

Printer doesn't work

I bought my laser printer last May, and until last week, it was working beautifully. I also bought an inkjet printer second hand two weeks ago so I could print in colour now and then. I installed the driver from the site for the inkjet printer and it works great. To use either printer, I just used to unplug the usb cable from one printer and plug it into the other. Both worked fine, though it was a pain to unplug and plug, so I bought another usb cable for the inkjet. Both printers stopped printing. Little did I know that there is only one usb port for a printer. Fine, I figured that out, a little late.... Anyway, the inkjet printer works fine, but the laser printer won't work at all. It came with an installation cd which I have installed six times and uninstalled six times to no avail. It will not print a test page, but only an error page - Position: )x42b (1067) System: h6fwaim_mono/xl_image Line: 132 Version: QPDL 5.04 04-25-2005 I have no idea what this means. The laser printer will print a demo page, and as it was working all along with my Windows XP, it is definitely compatible, as stated on the demo page. Anyway, I always change to the default printer, depending on which printer I want to use, and make sure it's online when I want to print, but I get a pop up saying to check the printing queue and try the trouble shooter, which I have countless times. I can't print in Word, Note Pad or anything. The laser printer is plugged into the proper usb port on my tower, the ink toner is new, as of two weeks ago, everything is plugged in, there are no paper jams,the usb cord works because I'm using it for the inkjet, and I use the same cord for the laser. I have no idea what to do and I'm at my wit's end. I've even gone to the Samsung website and downloaded the driver, but it still doesn't work. Is it the printer, or my motherboard? I don't have a virus, I've done defragging, spy bot and ad aware, and I have Window Washer, if that helps. I love my laser printer and bought one initially so I could print more without constantly running out to get ink cartridges. If you can help me, I'd greatly appreciate it. I do need detailed step-by-step instructions though.

Re: printer doesn't work

The printer test page prints in raw format. I have an ML2010 with the exact same problem as you with the added complication that I am using a network print server. Anyway, after months of printing problems I clicked on printer properties and configured the printer port to print in RAW format instead of default LPR format and now the printer works just fine. Just click on your print driver's properties, then find the port that your printer is on and click the Configure Port button. Change the protocol to RAW and then apply all settings. Your printer should work now.

Re: printer doesn't work

The answer is probably down to the usb port, they don't always like change, because you are trying to swap hardware in same port, they tend to want to stay with one or the other peice of hardware. If you have'nt got another spare USB port, which i assume you have'nt, invest in a 2 or 4 port USB hub(But make sure it's powered by a AC power lead and not just a usb powered hub, because some hardware will not be recognised e.g I Pods), this connects into your usb port and gives you 2 or 4 port more to use, and you won't need drivers for it. They are inexpensive and you simply plug it in. I think this will solve it for you

When you plug it in, (lexmark pro 205), there is a white light in the display box but no words or pictures and the on button does not light up. the only way to shut it off is by unpluging. It does...

Try to rebrick your printer. Pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds. This will give enough time for the printer to reset itself.

You may also try to plug the printer to a different known working power outlet in the wall to identify if it's a faulty power outlet issue.

If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Exact same problem as OP

Canon support was able to help me with this issue.

First, scanning with the MF Toolbox is only supported via USB, not across the network (scanning across the network generally does work but you need another application that supports it). Second, you must make sure that you have switched the device into USB scan mode. Press the Scan button on the device. If the display says "Network scanning" press it again until it says USB Scanning. From then on, scanning works beautifully.

Printer doesn't work


it seems to me that you might gotten the wrong driver install in your system.

error page - Position: )x42b (1067) System: h6fwaim_mono/xl_image Line: 132 Version: QPDL 5.04 04-25-2005

do a check on your OS version. Operating system. right click mycomputer icon -> properties.

download the correct version of driver from Samsung website again. uninstall the currect version and unplug the usb cable to the printer.

restart your system, install the downloaded correct version and plug in the usb cable to the printer. do a custom install to serach for the printer. if it does search the printer. it will show you. USB001. after install you will be prompt to do a test page. test on it to see it works.

if it does not work after downloading and install the driver. You might have a mainboad firmware corruption.

to run a firmware update is not easy it might course other major issue. only install by an trained Samsung Engineer.

Hope this Help :)

Recently i bought a HP printer F4185 feb/mar this year but then i was not using it frequently. unfortunately the ink dried up and i was asked to change the printer head. the problem is , why the ink...

Inkjets have always had varied results for service life. Yes, they are very sensitive to not being used. They will dry up from exposure to air. This is just an inherent problem, that is not specific to HP. It can happen with any inkjet printer.

But with the cost of laser printers, you can purchase a personal laser printer, for slightly more then a really good inkjet.
Lasers do not suffer drying out from exposure to air.

You can buy a personal laser for around $100. The quality is a lot better then inkjets, and the print on the page will not suffer age deterioration (fading) as bad as an inkjet.
If you need to do color, here is another area where lasers have dropped in price. You can get a really nice color laser for around $250.

Yes, the toners are more expensive, but cost per page to print is actually lower. And you will find that laser toners do last a lot longer.

I too have just bought a 2nd hand printer (Tally T8006) that also worked well until the fuser oil seemingly has to 'swamped' everywhere and which now throws up the same error code as above. Will attempt to 'dry it out' and see if the code clears. Have also recently sourced an original installation CD, will check out fault codes when it arrives - Gazz
