    I have the same problem, I have to pull out the inside unit with the cartridges in and then 9/10 times it will print again. do you think it could be a problem with the drum.. the whole unit which holds the 4 cartridges?

Try emptying the toner waste container. It's grey & L shaped, and can be found to the left of the blue toner cartrige. Pull it out and empty it into a plastic bag by lightly shaking it and tapping it on it's sides. But be careful or you'll make a mess. Hope this helps.

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.

My colour printouts from new Samsung CLP-310 do not match original WORD 2000 docs colours (or compared to HP deskjet. Is there a MS patch for this?


Hello,

There is an update for your printer. This is a firmware update. A firmware update, rewrites code located on the printer's main system board. The latest update is dated 10/17/08.

Flashing firmware does not have a go back element or undo, so it is really important that we verify your model and what seiries of printer you have. I suspect you have a CLP-300 Series printer and that the 310 of the 300 just describes some features added or left off and even who you purchased it from, in many cases.

Please look at these two photos and then post the data off the name plate for your model number in particular.

You will notice there are two lines to include in your reply.
1.) The Model: (first line)
2.) M/C entry (second to last entry in this photo of the label.

Once you verify this and I post the firmware update link for you, you will need to follow the instructions I include below.

Regards,
Worldvet
