Question about Samsung ML 1210 Laser Printer

2 Answers

Both Red error light AND paper light go on

There IS paper loaded. I've tried switching the printer on and off--no luck.

How does the ML-1210 let me know it needs a new toner cartridge? Maybe that;s the problem. But I don't want to buy one if it is NOT the problem.

Any advice?

Re: both Red error light AND paper light go on

I too have a 1210. Had mine for nearly 3 years. It sounds like that the sensor may have debris or may need replacing. If you have paper in, and the red light is on, then it is most likly a hardware issue. I doubt it being toner, but remove cartridge and shake side-to-side. Check your manual as well.

Page is not loading during printing

Occasionally, paper cannot be load during a print job.

Some of causes include:

• The tray is overfilled.

• The front cover has been opened during a print job.

• Paper that does not meet paper specifications has been used.

• Paper that is outside of the supported size range has been used.

If a paper jam occurs, the On Line/Error LED on the control panel lights red.

Find and remove the jammed paper. If it is invisible, look inside the printer.

Note: U would find the complete instructions along with the screen shots in the below link

The online error light is red on my ML-1610 Mono Laser Printer any ideas how to fix this?

It probably has a jam somewhere. Open each flap, remove the toner cartridge and check the paper path is clear.

Have you found a solution to the Samsung ml-2510 printer red error light staying problem?

There are a couple of reasons why this happen. A paper jam could have occurred. The cover might be open, try closing the
cover. There might be no paper in the tray, load paper in the tray. The toner cartridge is not installed. The printer has stopped printing due to a major error (you need to contact your manufacture for this).

Randomly printer stops printing - need switch off and on to restart printing

Sounds like you are just beginning to have problems with the paper feeding. Try cleaning the roller or applying rubber cement per my other post on the paper feed topic.

Unable to print

If both printers are connected through a parallel switch, be advised that changes on the switch do not take effect until the computer is restarted. Those boxes worked fine under DOS, but Windows does not support them. Connect the Samsung printer to the USB port and make sure you use a good quality cable and not those thin and cheap cables.
