Samsung CLP 500 series printer problem

I have a Samsung CLP 500 series printer that I have replaced the Transfer belt and the Imageing unit on and it still says they need to be replaced. I have tried restarting, unplugging and turning off the unit but it continues to have the same issue. It says processing .... and then shuts itself off when it gets to hot. Can you help me?

If you have the manual for the printer look up how to reset it.

also try unplug and push in the power button, then plug it back in and turn it on. let me know if that works.

Installing samsung clx6220 image unit

See page 103 of It looks like the clx6220 uses a transfer belt to transfer all the different toner powders to the paper.
The transfer belt unit is refered to also as the image unit !
Also each toner cartridge contains the OPC drum and is replaced when you replace a toner cartridge by the look of it.
You need a transfer belt to transfer the image to the paper and this is why they call it an image unit.
I am guessing that the transfer belt needs replacement !

There is a "CTD Calibration Error" at display! where is the "ctd"?

CTD detects the amount of toner on the drum and is used by the printer to determine charge levels required for good image production. It is a part of the transfer belt unit and cannot be replaced on it's own. First try removing and refitting the transfer belt, making sure the electrical contacts are clean and undamaged. If that doesn't work, fit another transfer belt.

CLP-500 is printing only on left side of paper

You'll need to look at

Drum Unit - these can go beyond their rated life

Transfer Belt - these can fail suddenly and dramatically, often quite soon after their rated life is reached.

Also check Transfer Roller (open the duplexer door to see this - grey (black when new) foam roller about 25mm diameter purple plastic tabs on ends (1 may be black). This is critical to good quality prints, as it maintains the contact between paper and Transfer Belt AND electrostatically pulls the toner off the Transfer Belt onto the paper.

The order iin which you open and close two of the covers is important, as there is an interlock between two of them. This can (and does) get damaged.

The toner access door is the first one you open, THEN the top cover (the one that gives access to the Transfer Belt and Drum.

Make sure the Drum unit is properly pushed into the printer, and that the Transfer Belt is lacated properly AND the two locking levers fot the Transfer Belt are in their locked positions PROPERLY.

THEN close top cover - you shouldn't need to force it.
Followed by the Toner access door.

Yes check the duplex door too !

If this fails it is likely to be a broken case part, or failed sensor.
