Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer
On black only printing I'm having trouble with poor quality printing. I'm getting bands of black on the left side of the page. Been going on for a month or more now, just changed to a new black cartridge (factory not refilled) and same problem persists.
If you the image is faded and your toner supply is good, the problem is the developer blades in the imaging unit. During the normal use of the printer, there is a buildup of toner that sticks on the developer blade. The developer blade meters the amount of toner that gets to the drum that ultimately makes it to the paper. As the toner buildup increases on the blade, less and less toner that gets to the drum cause the image to fade.
To fix this problem you will need to disassemble the imaging unit and clean the blades or buy a new imaging unit. I have clean my blades and I don't have 20000 images it is about 7000 and I have a document to show you if you are handy.

Both the faint printing on the left hand side of the page and the paperfeed problems appear to be inherent in the CLP300.
I called Samsung Support UK 0845 726 7864 and they sent an engineer (I was still under warranty). The black toner feed/distribution unit was changed as was the rubber roller for the paper feed.
If you are not under warranty, call Samsung and arrange a support number. Get the support company to call you and I'm sure they will give you a quote for the cost of the callout.
