Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer
Hi, this is my first post =) here is the time when someone in my family is panicking because of a deadline due in this afternoon, and the CLP-300 keeps stopping the printing half way through the document, on screen on the laptop it show that it has finished loading, but the printing just keeps stopping after printing out one page, with the red light on (not flashing), and then nothing happens again until i press the stop button... what's wrong with it? o.o
I had exactly the same problem - seemed to fail to pick up the sheet. I tried reversing the rubber pickup, but although I think this would work in some cases, it didn't work for me. What DID work was SO simple:
Take a piece of paper and fold it in half a few times, then tape it to the bottom of the paper tray, so that when in place, it will be under the pickup roller at the back. Now load with paper. The paper will be slightly raised at the back (below the pick up roller) and the increased pressure will magically make it work like new! Don't obstruct the paper-out detection slot - otherwise it won't know when it is out of paper.

I have had the same problem for months and it drove me mad!
Today I found the solution!
It is true that the printer jams all the time because of its incapability to get a grip on the paper.
If you look over the paper tray inside the machine and you start printing, just before it jams you will see some sort of rotating device, trying to pick up the paper for transportation. This little piece seems to be the problem, because you will see that it is unable to lift the paper.
The problem is, that the surface of this part isn't rough enough.
It used to be, when you just bought it, but over a certain time it got too smooth.
Here is what I did;
I took out the paper tray, so that the rotating device was clear to work on.
With a little sharp knife I started to scrape and make little cuts on the surface too make it rough again. And guess what, it worked!
I have just printed thirty pages without problems, Yes!!!!!!
I guess that the problem will return when the surface of that rotating device gets too smooth again, but now you know what to do.
The worst thing is that in the end it feels even very logic.
Why didn't I think of this much sooner?
Anyway I hope this will work for you as well, any many others....

Working Fix No Parts Required!
I had the same problem. I initailly managed with it by helping 1 page at a time through. Lost my temper with it today and although it is under warranty got my screwdriver out. if you pull the paper tray out you can see a rubber pickup roller at the back, it is easier to see if you flip the printer upside down. I am not saying this is the best way of repairing but worked for me and think it will resolve this issue in most cases. Fistly make sure you make a note of where everything goes (screws etc.) as you go along.
1. Remove the top cover (two screws under the front door)
2. Remove the two sides and back door.(sides first 1 screw on one side)
3. remove all screws on the metal plate at the bottom of the back side. A black plastic guide will drop off the back but it is easy to get back on. If not pull it off for now.
4. Rest the printer on its front if youve not already, you should now be able to bend the metal plate towards the left hand side enough to access the rubber pickup roller.(maybe an easier way but this worked for me).
5. Carefully unclip and slide the roller out(not the metal bar just the white bit with a black band on). This is quite tight take a minute to see how it clips in so you know how to put it back.
6. You will probably see that the section of the rubber band that has been in use is white/grey. Rotate the band so the unused section is where the white bit was (hope that makes sense).
7. Put everything back as it was and its as good as having a new pickup roller.
Hope this helps
