Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer
My Samsung CLP 300 has constant paper jams. Follow the troubleshooting guide to to avail. I will not buy this brand of Printer again, piece of junk!
Unplug the unit and remove the paper tray. Flip it over. Be careful of the floppy paper catcher--don't let it break off as you're setting the printer down.
Look towards the back of the unit, and you'll see a dark grey to black rubber tread about 1.25" long, in the center of a shaft. This is the gripper that pulls the paper into the unit. It needs cleaning.
I used VHS tape head cleaner (amazing--I still have a VCR!) but you could use rubbing alcohol. Put a few drops on a Q-Tip and scrub away at all surfaces of the rubber piece. It won't move, rotate, etc. and don't try to make it do so. The swab will get dark. Use the other end of the swab to scrub the piece dry. Pick away any loose cotton.
Turn it back over, plug it in, and it'll probably work. Did for me after much frustration that I thought was due to bad paper or my paper getting weird from humidity. I didn't think it was a roller, because I had hardly ever used the printer, but that may have been the problem...
