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?

Re: surge causing power outage
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

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)
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
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.
Check your printer's USB or parallel connection.
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.
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).
Select No for Do You Want To Use This Printer As The Default Printer? (see Figure 3). Click Next.
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
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.
