Did you buy a new printer already. The paper maybe to heavy.

Prints half page

Printing half a page with an Inkjet machine is not normally a computer issue. So windows 10 would not normally have any effect on the printing for a printer that has been accepted by the Windows 10 Operating System. If there was an issue in the software it would be printing gibberish or not printing at all.

Printing half a page is quite possably something stuck in the printer stopping the ink from getting to that half a page if it is printing down once side but not the other.
Printing half a page being that the top half is printed but not the bottom half (Or the other way around) it could be an air bubble in the feed line which can be cleared with a printhead clean or two.
Printing half a line rather than a full line such as the top half of each letter is clear but the bottom half of each letter is not visable is a blocked printhead. A couple of printhead cleans can also fix this.
Also check to see if the printer is not confused and actually has empty cartridges even if the printer thinks they are full. Brother printers can easily get confused about ink levels. If the cartridges are actually empty, replace them and away it should go again.

Hope that helps

Samsung clp-315 printer stops printing after half page

You'll probably have to replace the exit sensor (lots of people have this problem). Go to YouTube and watch this video: 5fJHykzkfww

You can get the part on eBay for about $10 and it's a fairly simple 15 minute fix.

Printer will not print entire document. If I have a 46 page doc, the printer only prints half. I enter the rest of the doc, and it prints maybe four pages then stops again.

Try printing pages 1 through 25, let printer cool down, print pages 26-46. I'm, thinking it's a print head overtemp problem. If the second printing will not do the complete 26 to end, let the printer set for a longer time to cool off and try again.

I downloaded the driver from epson's site and ran setup. It completed as succesful but when i try to print a demo page... it starts and stops like spikes... works 1 sec stops and then stars again...

That may be normal for a demo page. Your machine MAY take a bit of time to format and transfer the page data.

If it does this for normal print, then there may be an issue. The print data is spooled onto your disk before going to the printer. If you have other heavy activity going on such as downloading files, this can interupt the printing in spurts.

Last page of printing stops 3/4 through the page.

Try cleaning your heads with appropriate solution. Then, cancel all print jobs. Try again. If it does the same i would turn it off, inplug all the cables, replug all and turn on. Try again. If still no good, completely unistall printer then reinstall it. Try once more. Good luck
