Samsung CLP-300 paper feed

It seems to pick the paper but only moves it forward by about 0.1 inches literally and it stops there.
It's brand new, only printed about 10 pages.

Clean the feed roller.
Remove the paper tray, from the bottom there is a grey rubber semi wheel in the middle front of where the paper tray would be. Use a cloth with WD-40, brake cleaner, or lighter fluid to lightly wipe the rubber clean. Put the paper tray back in and it should print.

I have a Samsung CLP-300 color laser printer that does not feed the paper in anymore. I have checked if it was because of lack of ink, but that is not the case. The rubber drum that feeds the paper usually...


Usually the problem constist it this rubber roller. When you cleaned well, i am sure that the problem will disappear. If you can remove a rubber (you will need tools and tech skills) you can rotate it a little so it will be new(fresh) surface on this rubber.

Samsung CLP-300 paper does not seem to be catching when printing?


Hi. Kelly,
I think the issue is the due to paper pick-up roller. When the rollers get dirty or worn-out, the printer fails to pick the paper, which results in paper jam etc.. So, remove the paper tray and toner cartridge and locate the paper pick up roller in the middle. Clean it with damp (with luke-warm water) and lint-free cloth. I hope this would fix the issue. If the Roller is damaged or worn out, it needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps! Good Luck!

It won't feed paper, soon as it begins to feed, stops and red light comes on


I have a CLP-300, the paper jams alot also - I have found that cleaning the area around the imaging unit seems to help.

but usually the best fix is to replace the Waste Toner Bottle. that seems to let it work for awhile. If it starts acting up again, I'll empty the bottle, vacuum the imaging unit area and seems to help. I think 3 times is the most I have been able to do this before needing to use a new toner bottle.

Hopefully this helps...

Samsung clp 300 paper jams after feeding about 5cm. Tried more paper, less paper, printing black only, printing colour, no change. Help


Clean up the Pick Up Rubber.
When you are able to get the Pick Up Rubber out of the maschine rotate it 180 degrees an reinstall it. then the problem would be fixed.

My Samsung CLP-300 won't pick up paper (it goes 1 inch & stops)


No oil on rubber rollers! You must gently clean the rubber roller with isopropyl alcohol and a soft cloth. Let it dry and it should work again. Make sure to get ALL of the oil off of the paper paths surfaces.

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

The printer will not pick up the paper!


Suggest you clean the pick-up rubber that lifts the paper.
And also lift up the front of your CLP-300 by about 3 inches. I put a box under the front. The paper will fed slightly downhill into the printer.
It works for me.

Refusing to take paper


Someone suggested to empty the gray toner waste container located on the left side of the printer next to the cartridges. Be careful when emptying this as toner can make a real mess. Clean up with toilet paper or paper towel - not water!

Easy fix and this fixed mine like a charm. No need to send the unit in!

Samsung CLP-300 Paper Feed Problem


I had same problem and it got resolved by lifting the front portion of the paper tray up. I put a spare USB drive under the paper tray for sufficient push upwards. It seems to be working fine now for me.
