Samsung ML2010 laser printer paper feed roller belt

Need to replace the paper roller on the above printer. Have the part and the owner's manual, but nowhere in that or on the Internet have I found instructions for opening the printer and replacing the belt. Taking out various screws has not let me inside the machine. The roller that needs the belt wrapped around it is in the back. Any assistance much appreciated.

I just fought this same battle and have emerged victorious! The roller cam that the black rubber belt fits around is kind of "C" shaped in cross-section. The roller has left and right hinge-pins on one end of the "C" and snaps on the other. Looking at either side of the casing that the roller mounts in, you will see the end of the hinge-pin and a typical sqeeze clip like those often found on bigger laser printer rollers. I'm sure this was designed so that you should be able to sqeeze the left and right clips simultaneously which should release the snap end of the "C" and allow it to hinge out away from the casing. Unfortunately, it appears that the designer's good intentions were never tested. If your roller is like mine, it does not freely release by just sqeezing the clips. It was a bit awkward but while squeezing one of the clips, I used the tip of a small screw driver to pry loose the snap on that side. The trick is to hold that snap out away from it's seated position while you perform the same procedure on the other side. With both sides pryed away from their seated position you should be able to hinge the roller with black rubber belt away from it's case and remove it. In lieu of buying a replacement belt I simply rotated the existing one to expose the unused part and snapped it back in place. Voila!

    This was EXACTLY what I needed. I pried the small tabs off the half moon roller, and the broken belt and half-moon popped right off. I replaced the belt with a $10 one I found on the internet and it feeds 100% now! Thanks!

How do I get paper to feed thru my Samsung ML-1210 Laser Printer?


Dear
This model is old and may have aging defect for the friction pad and pick up roller.
You may kindly replace the above part for assurance of paper pickup. the paper is stacked vertically on the top from the back side pocket..
However the the pickup roller may be cleaned using a dampened cloth for temporary.

Thanks.

Samsung ML2010 won't feed feed paper


Rollers can wear out and lose traction. You can get spraycans of "rubber rejuvenator". Or it may be that the roller is slightly out of position somehow.

As for toner, some printers provide "feedback" to the computer of how much toner is left and you would find this in the Print System Preference "Options & Supplies".

If it doesn't, then the printer may display a "Low toner" warning, but these are usually just based on page count, rather than actual levels.

Realistically, you sometimes can't tell until the toner starts going grey and streaking. It's always a good idea to make a note of the page count on the printer at the start of each new cartridge, to see how many sheets your usage gets per cart.

Paper won't feed through. goes about 2-4 inches the stops no matter how many times i clear the jam.


Hi If you remove the toner/drum unit and look into the back of the printer you will see the paper feed roller and just above it a long thin foam covered roller. Clean this foam covered roller with a damp cloth, it will be covered in toner and too slippy to feed the paper. Turn it and clean until it feels sticky again, all should now work !

Laser printer manual feed jam


like the name goes, it is manual. You will have to feed the papers one after the other. if you do not want that, then load the papers into the automatic tray if you have one.
Incase none of the above works it means the roller that is suppose to pick the papers finds it hard to pass papers on to the other which you will have to replace.
good luck

Clean the roller with 409/simple green or water. Use a cloth not paper towel. NO alcohol. Rub it up good and it should start feeding. steven 818-888-0006

I print a publication so I print many copies within a few days. It says Paper Jam in tray area but I can see no paper, it makes a noise and never feeds the paper.


Some Laser printers require the paper to be loaded out of the **** on one side to work well. Flip your paper **** over and try loading the paper upside down. Sounds funny but may fix your issue. Also look at the type of paper you are using your printer may need a thicker or thinner paper (look at the manual). Clean the pickup rollers!

Samsung ML2010 printer; paper jam


Lise, That is VERY similar to what I experienced yesterday. You can probably fix this by cleaning the rollers (all of them) thoroughly. See what I did exactly, and find directions to all the rollers from your manufacturer: http://annoyances-resolved.blogspot.com/2009/09/paper-jam-buy-new-laser-printer.html

Let me know if that helped you as it helped me solve the problem completely.
