Question about Samsung CLP-500 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Poor color and un-even distribution of color on paper

So, when I print let`s say, a large blue rectangle it looks like there are horizontal lines in that color and it has an un-even surface cover...
I installed new transfer belt and toners, but it still gives the same result!

Your toners are almost empty or you are using refills or cheap chinese compatibles or you live in a hot climate. remove the dev roller from the toner cartridge and scrape the dev blade clean with your finger nail and reassemble. you will feel when you scrape the edge of the dev blade it is rough, this is caused by the blade coagulating the toner into hard deposits thus causing the toner to be limited coming out and producing un even prints.

When I print blue horizontal lines appear or being printed as wel


Do the cartridges ride on the printing carriage, or do they plug in somewhere else in the machine and have hoses that run the ink to the print head? If they ride on the printing carriage and the cartridge is new, there could be a short in the printer and it needs repair. Check if there's ink smeared on the print head or part of the printer. Generously clean the print heads with lots of paper towels and rubbing alcohol. If that doesn't work, to see if it's an issue with computer, print a test page from the printer, but don't send the print job from the computer. You need a print job generated from inside the printer itself. Not every printer can do this, but try pressing paper feed, holding down paper feed and power, or holding down cancel and power. If the blue lines disappear then but they didn't when you cleaned the heads, it's a software issue.

Verical lines of inconsistent or un-even printing,


In almost every case, the problem you describe can be traced back to 2 things. Dirty corona wire or dirty drum (or both). Pull out the toner cartridge, slide the wire cleaner back and forth a few times, clean the drum. The gently shake the toner cartridge from side to side to evenly distribute the toner and replace. This should solve your problem. Best of luck.

Canon Pixma MP780 print quality fault


My daugther also has a Pix780 so I just replaced my print head with hers and now the colour prints great. I guess I'll try cleaning mine first and if that doesn't work, I'll purchase a new one when the dealer who services Canon opens on Tuesday. I could also buy one from the Canon website for something like $60. I copied the following from Canon's sites under the FAQs. Sounds like you may need to replace your printhead.

How does a Canon Printhead work?
The printhead delivers very small drops of ink onto the paper. The ink from the cartridge is transported via small tubes. Heating elements heat the tubes, creating a small bubble of ink. The heating element determines the size of the drop to be applied to the paper.

How do I know I may need to replace my printhead?
There are a few symptoms that may indicate printhead failure or a clogged printhead. If the following symptoms continue even after replacing the ink cartridges and trying the troubleshooting steps in your user's manual or those listed below, you may need to replace your printhead:
  • Pages come out blank, or you see poor print quality
  • Pages you print appear to be missing colors
  • Colors on the printed page are quite a bit different from what shows on the screen
  • Horizontal white lines or light-colored lines or light streaks appear throughout the page

Why would the printhead have problems?
After hours of printing, the heating elements may fail after being turned on and off hundreds of thousands of times. The printhead can also become clogged or blocked with paper debris or solidified ink. If your print quality is poor or your printer will not print at all, it may be time to change your printhead.

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.

57H81Toshiba Blue Line not straight


You have a bad convergence output IC in the blue vertical circuit. On the bottom side of the chassis you will see a " V " printed by the heat sink. You will need to unsolder the heat sink and the 20 pins on the IC to remove it. Replace with STK 392-180 (sanyo) if possible or STK 392-150. Looking from the rear the heat sinks are big aluminum finned rectangles. There are 2 heat sinks one marked H and one Marked V. Even though you have a horizontal line your problem is in the vertical IC. Be sure to use a liberal dose of heat sink compound.

Washed-out color.


Looks like you need some printer profiling...
Washed out prints can be caused by several things... Let's see if we can sort it out.
It could be your printer, or it could be your monitor giving you false readings.
Printer Profiles: If you do not have the correct printer profile, then your prints may turn out faded. This is a gamma thing. You are encouraged to calibrate your monitor, and go to the printer manufacturer web site and look up your printer to see if they offer the correct RGB and CYMK printer profile.
Poor quality paper: most likely the problem is a poor quality paper. You did not indicate what printer and what paper you are using, so we cannot help much. However, try a sheet of the high quality photo paper and see if the colors print more vivid and saturated.
If the above doesn't help, I suggest you find someone else with a different printer who is willing to bring it over and print from your computer. That will proof the printer either in or out of the equation.
If none of this helps let us know and we'll walk you through the creation of a custom printer profile and custom color space.

Printing lines


Hi. I've been looking for a solution to this very same problem, but I think that the only way to fix it is to replace the print head. I've spent a few hours now trying to find out if there is something else which could cause this problem, and the only one that applies to me (and to you, if you replaced all of your ink cartridges), is that the print head is no longer working. I found a print head for $50 at http://www.precisionroller.com/k_canon_i560_print_head/m114d5908c104/ , so I'll probably go that route.
