Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

1 Answer

CLP-300 prints only in blue and black color

Mine is a brand new printer and has all toner cartridges full. Still it prints only in blue and black color. There is no red or yellow color in the output. If any one else has faced this problem and found a solution please do email me back.

Rest all seems to be working fine.

Samsung CLP-300 printer, very poor black coverage


Samsung printers are far from the best. I have the same printer and it needs a Fuser. The fuser part costs more than I paid for the printer and it's a little over a year old. Samsung will not sell me the part but will repair the printer for $135 plus the part which costs over $135. Shipping is $20. I only paid $141 for the printer. I'll stick with Epson and to hell with Samsung.

Hi. My Samsung CLP 300 Laser is playing up. It


The problem you are experiencing is a common problem with this printer. What happens is over time as the printer is used, toner or developer builds up a film on the developer blades. The developer blades meter the amount of toner that the printer puts on the paper to make the image. As the film builds up, less and less toner makes it to the page causing the image to become faint. The black developer blade probally is clogged.
This can be fixed two ways. The easiest and most expensive is to buy a new imaging unit for about $100+. The second is to disassemble your imaging unit and clean the developer blade(s). This can be done in about 30 minutes. I have posted instructions in my Tips section.

MY CLP-300 PRINTER IS NOT PRINTING BLACK TXT WELL (OTHER COLOURS FINE) DESPITE HAVING A NEW BLACK TONER CARTRIDGE CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN WHY ?


Spend a little time searching the topic on google and even this post. It appears that this has been a well documented problem since at least early 2008. The problem appears to be the imaging unit. According to several posts, Samsung has replaced several of the units. I purchased my CLP-300 in November 2008 and it worked with no problems until about 8 months in. The black text would print very lightly on the left side of the page about 1/4 of the way into the page. There was also a streak that ran down the page vertically that disrupted the text. I could change the font to any color and it would print just fine. After replacing several toner cartridges, I just began to print in a dark color for many months. After discovering all the posts on the internet this week, I contacted Samsung today with my documentation and evidence. They basically blew me off stating that I was outside of the 1 year warranty period and there was nothing they could do. I was even hung up on by a Samsung employee named Michael. Tonight I plan to take a hammer to it to relieve a little frustration. I cannot understand why Samsung chooses to ignore this well documented problem. Good luck.

Smasung clp 300 will not print in blk


Hi,

check if your toner cartridge(s) is moving the toner supply spiral,
you can see it in hole where toner leaving bottle. (you must push the
valve in cylindrical output of cartridge inside about 20mm).
When you rotate anti-clockwise gear of cartridge, the spiral inside must rotate too.
My original toner has this broken and print was light.

You can have also bad developer unit, blade, or contacts, or printer electronic board.

Are the toner cartridges genuine? If not then they may contain inferior toner. If your cartridges are genuine then you will need to change the setting of your printer in the computer to try and get a higher resolution

Hey m8


  • Buxie, first off you have voided your warrenty, secondly
  • If marks repeatedly appear on the printed side of the
    page at even intervals:
    • Clean the inside of the printer. See “Cleaning the
    Inside of the Printer” on page 5.7. After cleaning
    the inside of the printer, if you still have the same
    problems, install a new toner cartridge of the
    problem color. See “Replacing Toner Cartridges” on
    page 5.3.
    • Parts of the printer may have toner on them. If the
    defects occur on the back of the page, the problem
    will likely correct itself after a few more pages.
    • The fusing assembly may be damaged. Contact a
    service representative.
  • If horizontally aligned color or black streaks or
    smears appear:
    • A toner cartridge may be installed improperly.
    Remove the toner cartridge and reinsert.
    • A toner cartridge may be defective. Install a new
    toner cartridge.
    • If the problem persists, the printer may require
    repair. Contact a service representative.
  • SXPRESS- It is normal to have to replace it after that because the starter cartridges are rated for 1500 pages but that is at only 5% page coverage and most people print alot higher coverage than that, and the replacements cover 2000 pages again @ 5% page Coverage

Different looking text, but only in certain areas of the page.


Samsung CLP-300 color laser leaves 3-4 lines of various shades of black in middle of paper. Otherwise everything is great.
