Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

Imaging unit clp300

In middle of printing run, computer tells me to replace imaging unit
But there was nothing wrong with the unit, is this a way for samsung to generate more income by adding a chip to the imaging unit, As it happens i have another printer and i interchanged the units and i get the message from the unit and not the printer body. Maybe it could be a reset on the imaging unit. I estimate i have done about 4000 copies with the unit. If it is a chip in the imaging unit i will seriously not consider purchasing a Samsung again as this smacks of underhanded tactics. Any ideas

Regards

Hi,

it is more likly that your OPC Image unit has print more than 25K +/-. that the printer will course the prompt.

press and hold the button of the printer for 5sec and let go. it will print out the supplier info of the printer life spend.

there is no way to reset the OPC count unless you work in Samsung.

How do I reset ms610 imaging unit?


When you get the error message "Replace imaging unit, 0 estimated pgs remain [84.3x]" This means the imaging unit has reached end of life and needs to be replaced. The device will not print, and this message will not be cleared, unless you replace it with part number 50F0Z00
(or 500z)
Vertical streaking. If the imaging unit is near end of life, or the device has had problems with non standard toner, vertical streaks may occur on the page. Replacing the imaging unit will resolve the problem.
Vertical streaks on page
Vertical band at top of page. This typically appears on printed images, but can also appear on text. The most likely cause is toner contamination on the charge roll, however if the band is still visible after printing 30-40 continuous pages this means the imaging unit needs to be replaced.
Vertical Banding on images
Seal failure on the imaging unit. Occasionally seal leaks have been seen from the Imaging Unit.
Toner will be seen on the main frame near the Imaging Unit sides.
If toner build up is excessive, it may even fall into the Tray below. Cleanup with a toner vacuum may be needed.
Replace the Imaging Unit to fix the problem.
Spots, scratches, marks on the page. If they are random, this indicates a problem with toner scatter.If they are repeating patterns, measure the distance between matching marks or spots. If the distance is one of 97mm, 47mm or 38mm, this indicates marks or dents on the imaging unit and it will need to be replaced.
You receive the message Replace defective imaging unit The imaging unit is defective and needs to be replaced. If you just installed it, it will be covered under warranty - contact Lexmark Australia on 1300 362 192
You receive the message Reinstall missing or unresponsive imaging unit and the below instructions don't resolve the problem. Try one or more of the following:
  • Check if the imaging unit is missing. If missing, install the imaging unit.For information on installing the imaging unit, see the "Replacing supplies" section of your device's User's Guide
  • If the imaging unit is installed, then remove the unresponsive imaging unit, and then reinstall it.
  • Note: If the message appears after reinstalling the supply, then the imaging unit is defective. Replace the imaging unit.
You receive the message Replace unsupported imaging unit The imaging unit you attempted to install was either non-genuine, or was from a different region. Buy a genuine Lexmark imaging unit from an authorised Lexmark supplier in your country/region.
You receive a 31.6x error One of the following errors is shown on the display:
31.60 Imaging unit smart chip error
31.61 Imaging unit I2C packet timeout
31.62 Imaging unit I2C packet has been sent but code timed-out on receiving the data (callback)
31.63 Imaging unit security error in the send challenge sequence
31.64 Imaging unit ROM signature error
31.65 Imaging unit stuck busy (status register and/or CRI Arbiter register report busy)
31.66 Toner failed to replenish into the imaging unit
In this case you need to ensure that the imaging unit is properly installed. If yes, check if the imaging unit is supported. Replace with a supported imaging unit if necessary.
If the problem remains, you will need to organise a Lexmark service call (Australia 1300 362 192)
You receive error message 32.11 Imaging unit smart chip compatibility error This could be caused by an unsupported imaging unit (non-genuine or incorrect region). Replace with correct imaging unit to clear this error. If your imaging unit is supported, you will need to organise a Lexmark service call (Australia 1300 362 192).
You receive error message 84 Imaging unit low If expected, replace the imaging unit. If unexpected, call Lexmark Support (Australia 1300 362 192)

I have replaced imaging unit 2 months ago and now printer is telling me to replace it.


I assume that you made some alternation to the printer the it sense the change and blow the resistor of the imaging unit.all you need to do is check the resistor by the side of the imaging unit if it is blown replace it with same value but a stronger one.

THE QUALITY OF PRINT FROM MY SAMSUNG CLP300 HAS BECOME POOR, WITH SOME BLACK INK FADED


If the print is faded down the length of the page, then the problem lies within the imaging unit. This is a very commn problem with this printer. The developer blades get blocked by a coating of toner, which after many prints, cause a noticable fade in the image. This can be fixed by replacing the imaging unit or the blades can be cleaned. I have detail instruction in my tips section. It can be done quite easily if you are handy, and you could save yourself some money by not buying a new imaging unit.

Faded stripe down the printed page


I found a solution that worked to eliminate the faded black stripe down the page thanks to a post by slamfix in another forum. The problem is related to ink build up on the blade edge of the black developer assembly in the imaging unit (the imaging unit contains 4 separate developers - yellow, blue, magenta, and black). The solution involves taking out the imaging unit, removing and cleaning the blade edge of the black ink developer until smooth. It took me about 15 minutes to complete and was fairly straightforward.

VERY COMMON PROBLEM. YOUR CLP HAS A FAULTY BLACK DEVELOPMENT UNIT THAT IS INSIDE THE IMAGING UNIT. WARRANTY CLAIM IF UNDER YEAR OLD. IT IS THE DOCTOR BLADE THAT SITS ON TOP OF THE MAG ROLLER THAT HAS BEEN MANUFACTURED WRONG

COF37 error code


C0F37: Abnormally high toner density detected by Black ATDC Sensor
Toner density that is 4 % or more higher than the target level is detected ten consecutive times during a print1.gif cycle, ATVC, or image stabilization sequence.

The sensor for this error is in the black imaging unit not the toner hopper. See the steps below. If that doesn't work then visit my website1.gif for contact and I will sell you a full service and or parts manual on CD.
