Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Samsung laser printer clp-550


When I this error on any printer my first question is 'Has somebody pulled on some stuck paper and torn it?' If people are honest and say 'yes' then there may be tiny piece of paper covering a sensor. Pull out the toner(s), fusers and paper tray(s) and look closely for any scraps of paper. They may be jammed in the parts that you just removed. If you have another of the eact same model you could simply swap parts to check none of them are faulty. Lastly, it may be worth buying a can of air and blowing it through the printer in case there is paper dust covering any sensors. Failing these, get the printer servied.

Please rate me if any of this helped J

Sencor problem


Pull the paper tray out and look inside.You'll see the feed roller.It needs to be cleaned with alcohol or water.Usually,paper dust on the roller causing it to loose friction and it starts slipping during paper feed,and printer jams.

Samsung CLP-300 picking up too many pages


Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. Paper jam is a very common problem with the printers.

First of all clean off the rubber piece that pulls the paper into the printer from the tray with rubbing alcohol, and also take a knife to the rubber piece to rough it up to create more traction.

To clear the paper jam problem you need to remove the back roller mechanism to get at paper. If still the problem persists, then check the following to resolve the issue--

1. Please check all interlocks, electrical and signal connections are seated properly.
2. Front cover, back cover and lid are closed properly.
3. Power plug and USB cable are connected.
4. Printer is turned on with switch on the back.
5. Toner signal lights sequenced, with yellow overall led on.
6. There is some noise of paper roller movement.
7. Toner signal lights all out, overall status light turned to red
8. No visible paper in paper tray or anywhere else.
9. No paper in tray---added paper
10. Waste toner container is full or not installed ---empty, installed properly.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Clp 300 won't feed paper


Remove the paper tray. Gently pull the sides apart at the front end of the tray, to release the spring-loaded ramp which pushes the leading edge of the paper upwards.

Underneath this ramp are two compression springs approximately 1/2" in diameter and 2" long (above, left). The problem with the paper feed appears to be that these springs very quickly get fatigued and fail to exert enough pressure to push the tray upwards. Replace the long, thin springs with a more compact pair, with better compression, like one of the pairs on the right. I am still experimenting to find the ideal size, but this has definitely helped. Our local Ace Hardware store has a fairly good selection of compression springs. Home Depot had nothing remotely suitable.

You may find that an extra pair of hands and a pair of long-nosed pliers make the job easier when you are trying to keep the springs in position as you replace the ramp in the tray.

I have a Samsung CLP-600N. When I try to print I get a Paper Jam Tray 1. There is no paper jam. The paper is not feeding. I tried to hold up the Sensor arm and tried to print again. The feed does not...


hmcoul,

In my experience, very rearly is the sensor bad, the sensor is a simple optical sensor activated by a flag. All this sensor does is indicate if there is paper in the tray or not. The most likely problem is that your paper feed roller,(the rubber roller at the back of the printer in the paper tray area) is embedded with paper dust as is very comon on these units. try getting some water or even better still some eucalyptus oil and clean the roller. try to print again and see waht happens.

Paper jam


I too have this infuriating problem and the reason has already been pinpointed very well it is indeed the front rubber pinch cam not grabbing the paper well. I have approached this problem from another angle... under the front sprung loaded flap on the paper tray
there are two compression springsapprx 1/2" in dia. Gently prise apart the 2 flap pivot (on the extended arms) to gain access to the springs ,pull out the springs and either replace them with slightly stronger ones or pull the existing springs apart to retension them and pop them back (long-nosed pliers or tweezers) this will restore the spring tension lost during use with the rubber pinch cam.
