Question about Samsung CLP-510 Laser Printer
I have been using this Samsung CLP-510 Laser Printer along with my PC for many years with no problems . Brought it brand new. Recently, I tried to hook it up to my wife's new iMac with new OS Lion V10 or so for printing. Could not get it hooked up. Can not find the right printer driver to download. Brought a new printer for my wife. But Samsung printer went into a "thinking" or error mode. I can no longer print even after re-hook up to my PC. When I power it up. Display shows "Image Error" and will not go back to nomal display. My PC does not recognize this printer anymore even after I reinstall the printer driver for my PC (on Vista). Any solutions otr suggestions? Many thanks. TC

The manual says if you are getting this clicking noise that the imager is loose and to take it out and reinsert it. This is the device that all the toner cartridges are inserted in. It just Pops out so it is easy to remove and reinsert. What happens is it gets loose in shipping sometimes and just needs to be reseated.

2. unplug usb cable from computer

4. open front cover and remove all toner cartridges
5. plug power cable back in and start printer up
6. replace all toner cartridges to their respective places and shut front cover

SOURCE: My Samsung CLP-510 printer shuts down frequently for paper jam. However, there is no paper jam. To fix, I turn off the power to the printer for 30 seconds and after turning the power back on the paper
95% of the time when a printer reports a jam and there is no jam to be found it is because the machine has failed to pick up and feed the paper in the first place. The machine has several sensors along the paper path that detect paper movement, these sensors are 'expecting' the paper to arrive at a certain time and trigger them in order to activate other parts required in the printing process. When the sensors dont get triggered by the movement of paper at correct intervals the machine just assumes there is a jam, it doesnt know and doesnt know how to report that there was simply no feed.
Now, the cause of a machine failing to pick up paper can be (mainly) two things, either the feed rollers are worn or they are just dirty. Feed rollers are just like tyres on your car, they have a tread required for grip, when the tread wears down there is less grip on the paper, it slips, no feed, jam. However it takes a lot of work to wear out rollers (like 100k pages or more) it is more likely the rollers are just dirty, as a printer and copier repairman dirty rollers are by far the most common problem i see, they get caked with a combination of paper dust, environmental dust, moisture and other airborn nasty stuff thats floating around that we dont want to know about. basically this stuff accumulates on the rollers and causes the same results as if the rollers were worn.
I use a special roller cleaner but metholayted spirits on a clean white cotton rag will do it.
To locate the feed rollers for your machine:
You will need to remove the paper cassette/draw and put aside.
Facing the front of your machine you will need to tilt the machine backwards and support it at an approx 45degree angle.
Looking under the tilted machine to the right you should see a metal rod assembly that has two 'D' shaped rubber rollers on it, these rubber things are your feed rollers, from your angle they should be in a position like a letter 'D' laying on the flat part. You will need to gently rotate the metal rod assy so the arched part of the 'D' shaped rubber roller is facing you, it is spring loaded so you will have to hold it in place with one hand while you clean with the other. Take a white cotton rag and wrap around your index finger and dip into the metho and then use your finger as a scrubbing brush to clean the murk from the roller. If you use a white rag you can tell when the murk has stopped rubbing off, you may have to dip and scrub a few times using a clean part of the rag. The metho will dry very quickly so by the time you lower the machine and reinsert the paper draw you will be able to test straight away.
Hope this has helped.

Too many things for just one solution, If transfer belt is worn out, you'll get that, color drums can cause that, when the fuser wears out toner sticks and transfers to new prints. You have to unplug machine in the middle of a print cycle before print goes into fuser and determine if the problem is fuser or before

I just upgraded to snow leopard and my previous driver was erased, so I did some digging around and found the right driver (it is not included even in the most recent GutenPrint software).
Look at the Global Samsung website - the US Samsung site does not support MacOS drivers.
Your OS should ask to install Rosetta to read the file (Zip), but then the install is quick and easy. The printer driver immediately showed up in the printer>setup>driver menu. Prints without a hitch.
Haven't booted my laptop into 64bit kernel, so I don't know if the driver is 64bit compatible - I expect not. Hope this helps.
