Question about Samsung ML2250 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Samsung ML-2250 red light

When you turn on the printer the ''on line/error'' just stays red after it starts up. The toner is full, it has paper, there is nothing in the paper path, the fuser is still in good shape. Any idea what this means? I am not having much luck.

Check the paper tray. There's a latch along the lower left edge that's supposed to let the paper pop up when the tray is inserted so it can feed. If the tray looks OK, check the paper path again and look for a torn off piece of something in there. All it takes is one little piece of paper jammed in there to make the light come on. Use a flashlight and try blowing some air through it with the tray out, back door open and cartridge removed.

Red lite on printer-won't print


The red light on this printer would normally indicate paper jam, a cover open or the waste toner container is full. I would recommend double checking that no small bits of paper have got themselves lodged around rollers inside the printer. Failing this I would check the status of the waste toner bottle to see how full the printer thinks it is.
This can normally be done using the printers software on the PC, but sadly I am unfamiliar with doing it for your particular machine.

When I turn my printer on, the red light stays on and I can't print


Are any of the toner lights lit? Then the problem is you are out of that color toner and must replace it.

If the toner lights are off, then the printer has an error that must be corrected. Check for a paper jam, an open cover, no paper in the tray (or not being picked up by the rollers), the waste toner container being missing or full.

The other errors that could be at fault are service errors: LSU (laser unit) error, fuser error, or ITB
error. For these, you need to contact Samsung support for the part numbers. The fuser should last 100,000 pages. The ITB has an expected life of 60,000 black and white pages and 15,000 color pages. Samsung recommends these be replaced by a certified technician.

The unit will not print until the fault is fixed.

I hope this helps.

Light keeps flashing red,amber, green


If you turn off the printer and turn it back on, do you get any noises, ie motor noises, or does it instantly go to all lights flashing?
If you get no noises this usually indicates a board fault and you should look for a new printer.

The red attention indicator light and the toner indicator light are both flashing together


ON your driver check that the paper size is correct and this most commonly occurs when the incorrect paper size is selected. For example if you are printing to A4 and you have letter size installed in the machine then the system will cause an error or jam when there is nothing there.

Also within word or which ever program you are using on the document goto file and then down to page setup once in there check the paper size make sure it's correct for the paper in your machine also check the paper source. Once you have done this check the paper tray guides are correctly against the paper turn on and try printing and hopefully this will work.
