Black printing faded although toner not low

Samsung clp300 black printing faded although toner not low

  • lin52 May 25, 2009

    Suddenly my black printing faded, even on a test sheet so it is not the software. I changed the toner thinking it was that and it has made no difference. I turned the paper over in case it was a surface problem- no help either. I wonder if nozzles are clogged and if so, where they are and how I can clear them. Anybody?

Metering blade is gunked up. You need to dissasemble part of the imaging unit to fix the problem. Clean it. put it back together and BINGO! Like new. Do this before throwing money into buying a new imaging unit.. You can thank me when this works

As suggested by meeturowner cleaning metering blade is probably the best solution, I tried to open up drum unit, but could not figure it out how to open it up without damaging it. hear is temporary solution if you priting from Adobe Reader from print menu select Advance then select print as image. document will print better.

THE QUALITY OF PRINT FROM MY SAMSUNG CLP300 HAS BECOME POOR, WITH SOME BLACK INK FADED


If the print is faded down the length of the page, then the problem lies within the imaging unit. This is a very commn problem with this printer. The developer blades get blocked by a coating of toner, which after many prints, cause a noticable fade in the image. This can be fixed by replacing the imaging unit or the blades can be cleaned. I have detail instruction in my tips section. It can be done quite easily if you are handy, and you could save yourself some money by not buying a new imaging unit.

I have a samsung clx-3160fn printer. All toners are ok, espcecially the black one - BUT when I print black&white doc, it is comign out really faded - as if the black toner is low. BUT it is not!! Can...


Try printing the demo page, there's a man on there with a black tuxedo. If you see snowflakes on the black suit, you need a new hi voltage power supply circuit board. Also most of the generic toners don't work well in this machine.

Faded stripe down the printed page


I found a solution that worked to eliminate the faded black stripe down the page thanks to a post by slamfix in another forum. The problem is related to ink build up on the blade edge of the black developer assembly in the imaging unit (the imaging unit contains 4 separate developers - yellow, blue, magenta, and black). The solution involves taking out the imaging unit, removing and cleaning the blade edge of the black ink developer until smooth. It took me about 15 minutes to complete and was fairly straightforward.

Fading black print


Is the toner orginal?
Try printing a test page and see how that comes out?
Try shaking the toner it might be stuck on one side.

Thanks

Pring quality on Samsung CLP-300 colour laser


If you the image is faded and your toner supply is good, the problem is the developer blades in the imaging unit. During the normal use of the printer, there is a buildup of toner that sticks on the developer blade. The developer blade meters the amount of toner that gets to the drum that ultimately makes it to the paper. As the toner buildup increases on the blade, less and less toner that gets to the drum cause the image to fade.

To fix this problem you will need to disassemble the imaging unit and clean the blades or buy a new imaging unit. I have clean my blades and I don't have 20000 images it is about 7000 and I have a document to show you if you are handy.

IVE GOT A SAMSUNG CLP300 AND IVE JUST REPLACED THE BALCK INK CARTRIDGE BUT WHEN I PRINT IT STILL LOOKS LIKE I HAVE LOW TONER. THE PROBLEM IS CONSTANT ON EVERY PAGE I PRINT. ANY IDEAS???


VERY COMMON PROBLEM. YOUR CLP HAS A FAULTY BLACK DEVELOPMENT UNIT THAT IS INSIDE THE IMAGING UNIT. WARRANTY CLAIM IF UNDER YEAR OLD. IT IS THE DOCTOR BLADE THAT SITS ON TOP OF THE MAG ROLLER THAT HAS BEEN MANUFACTURED WRONG
