Question about Samsung ML 2010 Laser Printer
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!
