Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

2 faded areas on print out

Hello,

I have a Samsung CLP-300 laser printer and since of late I have this odd problem.

The printer but it fades 2 times in the middle across the paper, not in the length. They always appear at exact the same place and it doesn't matter weather I print color or black and white

Now I have read on this forum about 'the developer blade' I'm inclined to think this might be my problem, but I'm awaiting your view on this

Sincerly,

Arjan.

    I have the same issue, but at first it prints fine, but then fades down the middle of the page?  Is this the same issue?  I also purchased cheap cartridges so it could stem from this.  please advise.

If your printer looks like this:

Then you need to clean the developer blades. In the image above it is the black blade that need to be cleaned. If there are streaking on any other color, then then also needs to be cleaned.

To clean the developer blades, look to this link. http://losingambition.com/clp300imagefix/ It describes how to clean them. It only takes a few minutes to do once you get the developers out of the unit. Just be careful when you clean the edge of the blades. You need to make sure that the residue is completely removed from the edge. Also be sure that when you reinstall the blade that the little foam does not get trapped below the blade.Otherwise when you print the side where the blade is not properly installed will have too much color.

If you are afraid of messing your printer up, then you need to buy a new imaging unit. They go around $100.
