Samsung clp-500 paper feed roller replacement - how to...

There are 2 tires on one shaft and a spring.
Releasing the white clip on right hand side (like HP) does nothing useful. I expect I'm going to have to take off the LHS side cover and go from there- anyone got any ideas or visuals for help-

You're on the right track! If you remove the paper tray and put the printer in a position so the front of it is facing up, you can then access the roller shaft with ease. If you now look on the right hand side of the roller shaft you will see a white plastic end which is secured onto the shaft with a little clip, lift this up and slide the plastic part inwards. This should now make the shaft easy to turn so you can release the two white clips on the roller and remove the rubber band (which there is only one of, but looks like two on a first glance). Once removed, I just turned it inside out so you can get another few months or more out of it before you have to buy a brand new one for a couple of ££. Replacement is just the reverse of removal. Hope this help!

What I would add to Unicronicus's solution is that after you have removed the clip securing the roller shaft you need to roll the rubber roller in the direction of anti clockwise looking from left to right, i.e. the nearest part of the roller upwards and back. A half turn will reveal the clips that hoold the roller band in place. once these are unclipped you can roll the roller back and remove the rubber on its spool. replacement is much simpler in that you just clip it back in position. Whole thing takes 2 minutes

what happens sometimes is the rear side of the registration (shiny silver color) roller becomes worn down so bad that the spring cannot grab properly. the registration roller, in this case, would have to be replaced.

the way to check is by getting to the back of the machine, and if this is the cause, the spring should be a little wobbly on the shaft. with a new roller, the spring fits snug, and grabs properly for it to feed.

Clp 300 won't feed paper

Remove the paper tray. Gently pull the sides apart at the front end of the tray, to release the spring-loaded ramp which pushes the leading edge of the paper upwards.


Underneath this ramp are two compression springs approximately 1/2" in diameter and 2" long (above, left). The problem with the paper feed appears to be that these springs very quickly get fatigued and fail to exert enough pressure to push the tray upwards. Replace the long, thin springs with a more compact pair, with better compression, like one of the pairs on the right. I am still experimenting to find the ideal size, but this has definitely helped. Our local Ace Hardware store has a fairly good selection of compression springs. Home Depot had nothing remotely suitable.

You may find that an extra pair of hands and a pair of long-nosed pliers make the job easier when you are trying to keep the springs in position as you replace the ramp in the tray.

The paper won't feed into a lexmark X3480

There are a pair of white rollers on a spring loaded assembly that feeds the paper into the machine. If these rollers are glazed or very worn, they will not feed the paper.

Also, the mechanism is known for its temperamental nature. I also recommend removing the paper tray and manually lifting the paper feed assembly gently by hand, insuring that it returns downward in a smooth and unobstructed manner. There are tiny clips that must be released on the white feed rollers, if you decide to remove them. However, I suggest giving them a good cleaning with a soft cloth moistened with dish cleaning detergent and water. Use very little detergent -- just a drop or so, and water. Wipe the feed rollers until the entire "tread" area is clean on both rollers.

Paper jam

I too have this infuriating problem and the reason has already been pinpointed very well it is indeed the front rubber pinch cam not grabbing the paper well. I have approached this problem from another angle... under the front sprung loaded flap on the paper tray
there are two compression springsapprx 1/2" in dia. Gently prise apart the 2 flap pivot (on the extended arms) to gain access to the springs ,pull out the springs and either replace them with slightly stronger ones or pull the existing springs apart to retension them and pop them back (long-nosed pliers or tweezers) this will restore the spring tension lost during use with the rubber pinch cam.

Dell 1700 laser printer wont load from tray only manual

This is a common misconception with this model printer. People say that the roller does not drop down to pick up the paper. With this model printer, the pickup rollers ONLY drop when the paper tray is inserted. If you look on the top left edge of the paper tray towards the front of the printer you will see 1 1/2" to 2" section where the plastic edge is raised about 1/2 an inch. This raised part in the plastic actually serves as the mechanism for dropping the pickup rollers on to the paper.

So... The solution DOES HAPPEN TO BE cleaning or replacing the pickup rolers/tires. Rubber rejuvinator is the best for cleaning the rollers, but buying a whole can that you may only use once or twice may be a bit overkill. You can try cleaning them with soapy water if you do not have any rubber rejuvinator. DO NOT use alcohol, as this will dry out the rollers and shorten their lifespan even more.
