CLP -500 Paper feed problem

My CLP-500 no longer commences printing at a consistent position on the page. The top margin varies from sheet to sheet. I have checked for dirt on feed rollers and these look fine. I have also removed and cleaned the feed position sensor in the paper path. I checked this with a DVM and it switches from around 0V to around 2.2V when I block/unblock the light path. Is anyone able to tell me whether this is an appropriate switching level? Where should I look next for the cause of this problem? Thanks.

I had same problem and it got resolved by lifting the front portion of the paper tray up. I put a spare USB drive under the paper tray for sufficient push upwards. It seems to be working fine now for me.

SOURCE: Samsung CLP-300 picking up too many pages

Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. Paper jam is a very common problem with the printers.

First of all clean off the rubber piece that pulls the paper into the printer from the tray with rubbing alcohol, and also take a knife to the rubber piece to rough it up to create more traction.

To clear the paper jam problem you need to remove the back roller mechanism to get at paper. If still the problem persists, then check the following to resolve the issue--

1. Please check all interlocks, electrical and signal connections are seated properly.
2. Front cover, back cover and lid are closed properly.
3. Power plug and USB cable are connected.
4. Printer is turned on with switch on the back.
5. Toner signal lights sequenced, with yellow overall led on.
6. There is some noise of paper roller movement.
7. Toner signal lights all out, overall status light turned to red
8. No visible paper in paper tray or anywhere else.
9. No paper in tray---added paper
10. Waste toner container is full or not installed ---empty, installed properly.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

SOURCE: samsung clp 300 won't pull paper out of paper tray

I understand the rollers are clean but are they viable to pick up single sheets. I dont think it can due to no matenance to the rubber on the rollers themselves.


Go to fixyourownprinter.com and purchase the "rejuvination roller" jar. With this product, you must use a qtip and dip some of the solution on it. Then rub down all rubber rollers and let it sit dry for about 14 minutes. After that, you can do a test and you will see that the rollers gained their feel to print single sheets again or pull out paper again

When I print a multiple page document on tear paper roll, the first page prints correctly but the pages after that start printing too near to paper tear size or up to paper tear size. What should I do


Sounds like your top margin is not either not set properly or your documents do not have page feed command at the end. Are you sure you have the correct driver installed?

The printer is feeding a blank sheet of paper between printed sheets. How do I rectify this?


This causes the printable area on the page to be that much less (10 3/4 or 10 1/2 on an 11 inch page). The software thinks the paper is 11 inches long and keeps track, down to the micro inch, where it is on the paper. When it reaches the 10 1/2 inches, your printer calls the page done and ejects it. However, the software thinks there is still another 1/2 inch to print (usually the footer area). Now when you insert a new sheet of paper, the software finishes printing the rest of the page (normally a blank footer) and form feeds to the next sheet. To correct what the software thinks the paper size is, you need to run the Preferences application and change the default settings. Select the Printer button. In the next window, select the 'Change Defaults....' button. Change both the Document size and the Paper size to a height of 10.875 and click OK. Try a new document to see if the paper size is correct. You may need to go back and change the height a few times until it is correct (the height changes in .125 increments). Usually either 10.875 (for 1/4 inch forced top margin printers) or 10.75 ( for 1/2 inch forced top margin printers) will work.

Paper feed not move


If I recall the KXP series, it is a track feed printer as well as sheet feed, there should be a lever on the top that you can move to different positions, one position is for feeding paper without the rollers, when the lever is placed in a different position it releases the rollers so the printer can feed the paper. The open position is for installing paper or clearing paper jams. Also if I recall, the lever is on the right side near the roller on the end. When you move the lever, and turn the roller, you fill feel it grab the paper. There is also a switch on the front for line feed and page feed allowing you to tear off a page and then pressing it again will reverse the paper to print position.

Samsung CLP-500 output problems


i have found that removing the toners, and shaking them side to side, while keeping them horizontal, which seems to spread the toner for even distribution. This can sometimes fix the problems with fading prints. hope it helps.
Margins i think might be a problem with the wysiwyg of the program, some don't do it well, but also excel in particular has a shrink to fit page option, you may find the percentage not at 100%. you can also copy an excel table to word and print from that if it is driving you nuts.

Paper feed


The feed rollers are slipping on the surface of the label, causing the page to load incorrectly. There is no permanent solution at this time. Try one of the following workarounds to correct this issue. Workarounds Workaround 1 Adjust the top margin using Page Setup.
  1. Click File , then Page Setup in the program being used, (accessing Page Setup may vary from program to program. Refer to the Help file for that program).
  2. Adjust the top margin until printing is correct on the label.
Workaround 2 Manually print one sheet at a time. Place one sheet of labels in the input tray at a time, printing only that page. Repeat for all pages of labels needed.
