    Hi anibansal,

    The problem is at the front of the machine. There is some little tooth or whatever right in the middle that is catching the paper as it comes through. Is there someway to take the front roller assembly apart?

My samsung ml-1430 won't feed paper


There is a solenoid on the board of your printer. It pulls in the metal tab that allows that pickup roller to spin. It is supposed to let the roller roll once, but if it gets dirty, it gets sticky,and this might be the problem you are facing.

Here is the solution to the problem;

Take the board off of your printer and push in the tab. If it sticks for any longer than 1/4 of a second, then get a small flat-head screwdriver and remove the foam padding on the solenoid. Make sure you get it all. After that, get a piece of paper, fold it in half, and smash it in between the solenoid and the tab. Then slowly remove the paper, while still holding the tab. Do this until all the sticky stuff comes off on the paper. This should fix the stickiness, and allow the tab to go back out.

Thanks and take care.

Paper won't feed

You have to clean the rollers and paper feed mechanism.

The feed mechanism can stick due to static electricity, or simple wear & tear.

Laser printer ml 2010, paper pull in problems

I also have the ML-2010R and I also had the paper feed problem. with warnings about paper jam around toner cartridge.
After a bit of reading and people mentioning the big roller that picks up the sheet of paper and that it needs replacement; I decided to carefully try to clean that rubber roller.
I used a brush and medical alcohol to clean the roller. After letting the roller dry I put in some paper and tried to print again and for me it works like a charm!

Paper won't feed

You could try cleaning the rubber feed roller with a slightly damp rag, or even having feed assy replaced but you are right probally better off replacing it.

Printer malfunction

The samsung printer have three paper jam sensors. First (paper jam 0) after the feed rollers. Second (paper jam 1) at the left of the feed rollers and third (paper jam 2) at the fuser unit where it is hot. You can see the actuator between the two white rollers. Paper jam 2 is mainly cause by the scrappers out of position on the side of the upper heat rollers.You will have to clean it and put it back into position.

Samsung ML 1430 - won't print; paper light flashes

Tuesday, October 17, 2006 Samsung ML-1430 Won't Feed Paper My printer had stopped feeding paper reliably a while ago. This had reduced me to manually pushing each sheet of paper into the machine until the roller caught it. Which, in turn, often resulted in many explicatives directed towards said printer.

All in all I like the Samsung ML-1430, which has been discontinued. It was pretty inexpensive, the toner cartridges aren't too bad considering I really have gotten thousands of pages (at Staples, which has a wicked good customer loyalty program, IMHO).

However, after only two years, there is this feed problem. I found the answer in an Amazon posting (thank you brs for posting this). Here is the solution from there:

  1. You need to rotate the rubber band on the feeder roll to a fresh surface. Start by turning off the printer, disconnecting it from power & data feed.
  2. Remove the two screws from the back panel and press the small tabs to pull the back panel off.
  3. Open the front of the machine and remove the two screws that hold the top panel in place. Take note of how the sheet feeder sits in this assembly. The sheet feeder is not screwed in, but rather held in by the other pieces.
  4. Remove the toner cartridge and set aside.
  5. There are four screws that go through the metal plate now visible at the top. Leave the wires connected and remove these screws. Take note that there is a grounding cable that needs to be reconnected.
  6. You need to remove that top assembly, so take note of how the roller fits into the black tie rod that actually turns the roller. I found that lifting the unit up and sliding it to the right (as viewed from the back) disconnected the roller from the tie rod.
  7. Remove one screw from the roller pickup assembly and disassemble the roller.
  8. Note that one side of the rubber band is shinier than the other. This is the problem. Carefully work the rubber band off, rotate it 180 degrees and slide it back on to the roller.
  9. Reassemble and test
This repair took less than 20 minutes and I expect that it will last another two years of rather heavy usage.

BTW, brs on Amazon also provided a repair part number: JC72-00109A. However, searching on Samsung for this part yielded nothing. I suspect this is due to the machine being discontinued.

Have fun!
