Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

2 Answers

Surge causing power outage

Whenever I print a document, in the first few seconds as it warms up, my Samsung  clp 300 shorts out my battery back up. If I turn off other peripherals and the monitor it will still flash a surge alarm. Anyone familiar with this, or is this just a bad unit?

    It is plugged into the surge side of the battery backup. I'll try bypassing it and hopefully won't break the whole circuit in the room. It seems like it's drawing way more power than it ought to...

Also, I had this problem, but even on the surge only side, you might see the batterybackup kick in for, "electircal noise" thats what mine said. So you might want to just use a surge protector and bypass the batteryback up

A laser printer when warming up draws far more power than your battery backup is equipped to support. Plug it into the surge protector side if you have one, or bypass the battery backup entirely.

Samsung CLP 300 Error #12288 Unable to create tempfile


I suggest you download the latest version of the print drivers, uninstall the old ones first. Also, check to see if your program has any updates. Does it do it on other programs as well?

If so, there is a driver issue not properly talking to Vista.
If it works on other programsl, its related to the program itself.

thanks adi

Printer is on idle


to detect the printer status you need to download a samsung smart panel for CLP-300 from Samsung web site.
And if the status is ok try taking a demo page by continuously pressing stop buttons till the print is out put in tray. (usually more than 5 Seconds)

CLP-300 Printer will not print!


Check for fragments of paper inside the printer around the rollers. If you find any, remove them. Turn off the printer and then turn it back on to see if it solves the problem.

try to do this set of instruction & solution:

  1. Go to Start | Control Panel | Printers And Other Hardware | Printers And Faxes. Double-click the icon for your printer to open the Documents window and clear any pending print jobs by selecting Cancel All Documents from the Printer drop-down menu
  2. Try printing a test page from the printer, not from Windows XP. Most printers have a built-in test function that's activated by holding down one or more buttons while the printer is starting up. Check your printer's user manual for instructions. If this page prints successfully, you know the problem is either with your connection or with the software in your computer.
  3. Check your printer's USB or parallel connection.
  4. Try printing something simple from Windows' Notepad. To open Notepad, go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | Notepad, type a few lines of text in a document, and try printing it. If it successfully prints, the problem is with the software program you originally tried to print from.
  5. Try printing using Windows XP's generic printer driver. Open and run the Add Printer Wizard. When you get to the Install Printer Software screen, select Generic under Manufacturer and Generic/Text Only under Printers (see Figure 2).
  6. Select No for Do You Want To Use This Printer As The Default Printer? (see Figure 3). Click Next.
  7. When prompted on the next screen, tell Windows XP to print a test page. If the page successfully prints, then you probably have a problem with your installed printer driver. Either update or reinstall the driver.

Computer Restart


I noticed this issue also. Initially, I thought it was the printer. However, I found that I was overloading the electrical outlets that were on a 15 amp breaker. With my computer and the CLP printer, and two to three other items on the same circuit, the computer defaulted to power down due to the overload.
