Question about Samsung ML 2010 Laser Printer

1 Answer

My New ML-2010 creates a loud annoying sound!

Hello there, the title above speaks a bit on its own. Okay, let me tell how it began in the first place. First, there was a stack of paper in the tray just like always. It was fitted nicely in the tray, so I tried to print a document. Then, the printer tried to roll the paper but the paper was not fed, and end up with a loud cracking sound. And each time the printer calibrates itself now, it creates a VERY LOUD cracking sound repeatedly, furthermore to be followed by the fact I fail to print anything as the status says "Paper jam at toner catridge" although there isn't any paper there. I'm sure of it as I scanned the printer using a torchlight to see the printer looking nice and unscathed. It's still under warranty but I wish to have it solved this way first as I lack the time and transport to get a change. Is it the toner problem or it's the printer? I hope you can help as I may need it urgently. Thanks!

Re: My New ML-2010 creates a loud annoying sound!

Ok, it is good you checked for paper jams. I need you to look inside the unit where the paper roller is on both sides and see if both sides look even and the same. It still sounds like a jam to me, and this would definitely create a loud sound as your unit is trying to print for you and the mechanism will keep trying to turn even if it can't. Something may snap or break if there is a jam so make extra extra sure you check every nook and cranny as jams can be so very tiny. I found a piece the size of a matstick width in mine that my toddler had posted in it, and it was caught in the paper roller teeth inside the unit. When you open your printer, does the cartridge holder roll by itself to the left or stay still??? Take out the toner cartridge and thoroughly clean inside with solution and replace.

Try downloading the latest drivers directly form Samsung. The link is below, at the top of the page click Driver, and on the list (right hand side) click the icon for Universal Print Driver. I would save the file to an easy to get to place (i.e. the desktop). After you download it, run it.

I hope this helps and solves your issue.

Samsung ML2010 printer; paper jam

Lise, That is VERY similar to what I experienced yesterday. You can probably fix this by cleaning the rollers (all of them) thoroughly. See what I did exactly, and find directions to all the rollers from your manufacturer:

Let me know if that helped you as it helped me solve the problem completely.

Is it connected directly too the computer or to a network?

What it sounds like is that you are having a spoiler problem, the computer is intialized but its not getting the info to print. Or it could be a printer malfunction, something mechanical isn't working right in the printer. If you've removed the ink cartridge and replaced it, it could be out of place or not seated right. Other components could be locked up. If the light goes red could you tell us what the error message is? And have you looked at your user guide for information on possible errors?

Printer makes a loud clicking noise

Same problem after a paper trapped. I don´t know if the paper trap was because something broke, but after I took the paper the noise started. Please someone give us a solution.
