Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

3 Answers

I have a solid red light and the software says DEV. Home Error. I have tried everything Samsung has asked and I still get the error. The first error said driver damaged. I removed the drive and all Samsung software, went to the Samsung download center and downloaded the latest driver, installed it from the desktop and now get a Dev. Home Error. Please HELP!!!

This can be fixed by stretching out a solenoid spring on the power cord side of the printer. The solenoid acts as a clutch to stop the spinning developer actuator at the right spot.

Open up the right side (power cord side) of the printer (take off top cover, then take off side cover). Then, find a solenoid (little metal square) that touches the white plastic vertical spur gear. Take the spring off the solenoid. Now, put the spring back on - only this time you will attach one anchor point to the middle of the spring as to pre-stretch the spring for more tension.

The problem is that the spring gets weak over time / the cogs round out over time and the solenoid finger is overcome by the spinning cogs, and resulting in selecting the wrong developer.

Right out of the box, my ML-2510 has a solid red error light


You should install the software prior to connecting the printer, to make sure the provided drivers are ibstalled and not the generic ones that come with Windows.

Deve home sensor error


You could try replacing the Image Unit (but these are quite expensive). This error actually refers to an optical sensor located in the gearbox (RHS of machine). The sensor controls the drive to the individual dev units, hence the "dev home error" if it malfunctions.
Probably a job for an engineer.....

Brand New printer status led RED, Smart Panel error "dev home"


Samsung CLP-315 Dev Home error
It appears that the Dev. Home error is very common for Samsung printers. It obviously has different reasons. In my case I solved it by stabilizing the deviation clutch. It was too unsteady and the dev. sensor recognized a fault.
The dev. clutch is situated under the right cover, which is the power supply side of the printer. To remove this cover you need to firstly remove the top cover, which is held by two screws on the front. Then uncover the right side by unscrewing one screw on the back, near the power supply inlet and unclip a couple clips on the top side of the cover. After removing it you have to find the deviation electrical clutch. Check if it is too unsteady. If it easily moves, you need to somehow stabilize it, in my case by a couple of leather straps under it, so that they press it up and make it steady: 5_19_2012_1_08_58_pm.jpg

After that simply check if you have stabilized it properly. If you have the green light must turn on after switching the device on.

NB! Be extremely careful when power is ON, because there is high voltage running. I'd suggest that you would stabilize the thing with non metallic item to keep safe. Good luck!
