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...

Almost constant jamming ...


You need to check for bits of paper which could also trigger the sensor for the paper jam error.

If you cannot find any, then try to do a quick maintenance of the printer. Clean the printer head, initiate the print head alignment utility.

If it still not solved after these, post back so that we can help you further.

Samsung CLP 300 printer jams when using legal size paper. I've changed the paper size in the properties menu and it still jams every time. Help.


Make sure the paper setting in the printer driver software is set correctly. Sometimes that can cause this problem.

Paper jam at exit


The rollers at the exit area are worn out. They can be changed, in the mean time you can use something like sand paper to rub across the rollers to take the smoothness out of them. That will help them get a grip on the paper as it is exiting.
