Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

4 Answers

Tried Everything... Just kill me

I have replaced all cartridges including the waste toner cartridge. I have flipped the band around all the pick up roller. The printer warms and is pretty squeaky/noisy and then defaults to red light. I have given it a shake and am thinking of taking a bat to it though I am doubtful that will help either.

    I have the same problem. I have no paper jam at all. I have taken out the Ink Holder and reinstalled it. I have opened the back of the printer and closed it because no paper is there. I have taken out the paper drawer, no misfeeds there. Still the red light returns. Is there a solution to this?

    this stupid printer acts like it is ready but it keeps that red light on, and i cant turn it off! the computer sees it, it has paper, all new toner cartridges, and its not jammed. whats up with that?

Try emptying the Toner waste slot (the gray "L" on the left) and then turn your printer off to let it cool.
i let a fan blow on it for a long time to cool it

Try to turn the printer off, disconnect from the computer, turn it on, wait to the green light and then connect to the computer. It helped in my case ;)

Some of these problems may be helped by lifting up the front of the printr by a few inches. The paper then slides beautifully into the rollers.

install the Smart Panel Program than you get a failure message.
The Red light is only a signal for failures but it doesn't tell you what ist defect.

Changing waste container

The is no waste container on Phaser 6500. There is a "waste collection box" in every toner cartridge and the waste toner is discarded along with the empty cartridge. The is also a waste toner reservoir on the transfer belt and this one will be replaced along with the transfer belt.

If there is an error message saying, for example, "Waste Full Cyan Cartridge", it means the waste toner counter reached the replacement value for that color and you have to replace the corresponding cartridge. But the waste collection box is not really full.

Changed toner---back side now prints dirty with band on the top. Did the cleaning procedure - no luck

If you changed toner because old was empty and now you have this defect with the new cartrige, it is most likley a defective cartridge. Try the old cartridge again, if it prints clean, then you know for sure it is the cartridge. If you purchased a new HP cartridge, get it replaced by HP, they warranty their toners against defects. If you bought a 3rd party toner, return it to where you bought it and get them to replace it. If you had your old toner refilled by someone, get your money back, they don't know what they are doing. This type of defect is often caused by a filled waste toner bin then then runs back out when you print. Some refillers just throw toner in and don't empty the waste toner bin.

Toshiba E-Studio 202L cartridge does not match manufacture

Did you replace the waste (used) toner cartridge or the empty toner cartridge? These copiers have 2 "cartridges" .... one is waste (used) toner, the other is "new" toner for copying / printing etc. Some newer copiers have All in One units....Drum, New Toner, Waste (used) Toner. If you replaced the Waste Toner container (or dumped it) that should reset the code or error message.

Replace/install waste toner tank

The front of the printer flips down.
Inside are the 4 toner cartridges, immediately to the left of these is an L shape. This is the waste toner tank, it pulls straight out.
