Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Faded on left hand side

In a black and white document, the left hand side (when the margin is set to around .5), it is faded vertically all the way down BUT if changed to a color, it prints OK.

Please let me know anything. It is a fairly new printer

    I have the same problem, but the colors also fade. Any ideas?

    I have this very problem. The color prints perfectly across the page. All toner cartridges are new and full of toner. The printer software recognizes all cartridges to be full as well. I've taken the black cartridge and shaken it, lightly tapped it, banged it a bit harder on a solid surface, rolled it the way the manufacturer suggests. Nothing I've tried works. I sure hope I don't have to turf a $$$ black cartridge!

    Same thing and just changed the toner so definitely not run out! Nothing but trouble from this printer since i got it.

    My printer was fine but the left hand side started fading a few weeks ago. I've just replaced the black toner (with a genuine Samsung one) and it's still the same, if not slightly worse! Have tried shaking and rolling it etc but no joy.
    Perhaps these printers only have the lifespan of one toner and once that's changed they are never the same again?!!
    I still don't have a solution to the problem. Now i'm wishing i'd waited and got a more expensive printer. I've also had the paper feed problem that people have mentioned, especially with labels.

If it only happens with the black then you need to change out the black toner cartridge. The good news is isn't doesn't happen with color so it more than likely not the printer but the toner.

If you remove the toner cartridge and gently shake it side to side, then reinstall it, does the problem go away, or come back after a few pages? I would suspect you have a bad toner cartridge/image unit and recommend you put in a new one.

Open top cover and remove toner, shake toner cartridge and try a test print. IF image good then problem is low toner level in cartridge.

Three small white vertical lines in black printwhere the black does not print. Not present in other colors.


This is coming from the Black Drum Unit. You may be able to remove the unit and look into the slot on the top. You should see the drum which is green in color and may be able to see the lines. Not much you can do with these units so you may just have to replace it.

Faded-out streak


check your ink levels. if its the ink that came with the printer it is probable running out of ink. they do not give a full cartridge with printers, only about 3rd full. also try cleaning the heads. and try changing your printer settings/prefrences to less ink, more drytime see if that helps.
