Question about Samsung ML 2010 Laser Printer

Problem with printer

Hi I've posted this problem before but no answer yet, maybe you can help me. I need to print from a Visual Fox system to a shared Samsung ML-2010 printer. By default in the printer configuration the printer processor is RAW, but the printer blinks (like receiving data) and doesn't start any printing. If I change the printer processor to TEXT the printer does print but it doesn't recognize the especial characters like line feed, carriage return, etc. The same system works fine with HP printers with RAW printer processor, I don't know why it doesn't work with this Samsung printer. I've installed the latest driver from the vendor but it remains the same. Thanks a lot for your help

Re: Problem with printer

I wonder if you could somehow add the printer codes (linefeed, carriage return etc.) into the printed document manually. If you have looked at some of the manuals which came with old printers (like Radio Shack or Epson dot matrix units), they had a listing of special ASCII codes which would produce a linefeed, or a special character. Though I never tried it, one could insert one of these ASCII codes, and the printer would, I guess, follow that coded instruction. Experimentation would be required, but maybe you could get things working more to your satisfaction. Does your printer have the option of using Postscript? Again, this isn't an area of expertise, but some printers have such an option. Does your Samsung have PCL like language, or by chance emulation (HP compatible) options?

Prints blacks fine, not printing grayscale.


The answer to your question is very simple. If your document has a greyscale area, it is a color document and needs a color printer to print.

Greyscale is not light black printing, it is color in layers to give the visual impression of light black or grey.

Greyscale printing is only printable in a color printer, and does not use any black ink in its reproduction.

You do not say which operating system you are using.

In Windows operating systems, generally:

Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Epson SX100 icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions > head cleaning >print test page.


Print a document > Print Dialog Box > click "How To..." > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions > head cleaning >print test page.

I have an HP 1022 printer. Recently I am unable to print. When I try to print there is a rattling noise. I've checked the paper feeder and didn't note anything loose.


This can be caused by a bad driver or the printer itself is going bad. But eitherway, you should get an error message either from the printer or from the computer where you are trying to print. Post the error here. We will be more than happy to post the resolution.

Hope this helps.

Maybe you can help me with my printer error

I'm not familiar with your Visual Fox system, but from your description it sounds like you are exceeding the printer's memory. Your model only has 8MB RAM and is NOT expandable. Even if your document is less than 8MB, the printer has a lot of overhead it has to deal with. Some printers make better use of memory than others. Your HP printers probably have more memory and/or a better scheme for handling it. You might want to try a VERY small document to see if it prints. I know this doesn't FIX your problem, but hopefully it will help solve the mystery. Ed
