you could copy and paste the part number and perform a google search under the "shopping" tab to find the motor

Samsung clp-300 faint print on left side

Same problem here.
I ended up calling Samsung support and, after being hung up on a couple of times, and transferred numerous other times, I managed to speak with someone who helped me through a few tests.
He ended up sending me a new imaging unit. This is the main guts of the printer (when you open up the front panel and pull the green handle, the entire thing you're pulling out is the imaging unit).
Since the unit was only 8 months old this new part was free (I think the warranty is a year).
After installing this new part, the problem went away.

I understand that you are receiving the message to align print cartridges when ever you print.

This happens due to various of reasons.

Below are the possible causes of the issue that you are experiencing with.

The most common reason is an ink cartridge that has one of the following problems:
1.One of the print cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must available.
2.The paper has already been printed on or is colored paper.
3.Protective tape on a new print cartridge has not been removed.
4.Contacts on the print cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the print carriage correctly.
5.Cartridge is remanufactured or refilled. Refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges may have been damaged during the refilling process or have clogged ink nozzles.

6.The print cartridge is defective.

So, make sure that ink cartridges have sufficient amount of ink and are of genuine HP should not be refilled or remanufactured.

Clean the cartridges by following the below given instructions:

Using a clean, dry lint-free cloth (a coffee filter works well), wipe the cartridge contacts, from the top to the bottom. The contact area of the cartridge should be rubbed briskly to remove the waxy lubricant material from the gold contacts. The contacts inside the printer may also require cleaning. Using a clean, dry, lint-free cloth, gently wipe the contacts, from the top to the bottom.

Align the print cartridges by following below given instrucions:
To align the cartridges from All-in-One

1. Press Setup.
2. Press 5, then press 2. This selects the Maintenance menu, then selects the Align Print Cartridge option. A page prints to confirm alignment. You can either discard or recycle this page.

Even if the issue persists, bypass the alignment by following the below given instructions:

Press Enter and Setup simultaneously when align message is prompted on the All-in-One.

Please remove the All-in-One Printer from the Power Surge Protector and plug it directly into a wall Power outlet, as the surge protector may not provide enough power to printer.

Please perform the step given below to power cycle the unit after removing the print cartridges from the printer:

1. Verify that the unit is switched on. Unplug the all-in-one from power and disconnect the USB cable from the computer.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in the power only
4. Repeat steps 2-3 two more times.
5. On the third time after plugging the unit into power, reconnect the USB cable from the all-in-one to your computer.

Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:

1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on and wait for 20 seconds.

2. Then, press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord.

Continue holding until it displays Semi Full Reset message in the front panel of the All-in-One.

A semi-full reset will do the following:
The user settings to the factory defaults, Language and country settings on some models, Fax logs, Fax headers, Fax speed dial information.
This should resolve the issue.

No pic or sound but gets power

The power supply may have failed. Also, it is possible that there is a failure in the HV section.

You will have to take the set in for an estimate. This is something that I doubt you can fix yourself at home. The set will require troubleshooting by an experienced tech.
