Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer
My printer grinds for a bit and then stops. The Printer Doctor tells me it is a paper jam. I had been advised to take it apart, because usually when it said that THERE WAS A PAPER JAM if only a little bit of paper on a sensor.
I did that, and did not find any paper at all, then put it back together, and nothing has changed.
I was forever getting paper jam messages which were false - was driving me nuts and couldnt print at all
- thats how I found this thread and this was very helpful
- couldnt work out how to shift the rubber band but cleaned it - rubbed a bit of sandpaper over it and pushed some folded up paper betwwen the band and the roller
anyway - one way or another it picks up the paper fine now and no more nonsense messages - problem gone ; )

The "rubber band" is actually a "tire" and can be gotten at alternative sources as the hub and tire from Partsmart-corp.com under part number PUR-SM1610 for $1.50 each plus shipping. It is the same roller & tire used in the CLP-300 and the ML-1610 as well as the Dell 1100 (you thought Dell made their own stuff huh LOL)

CLX-3160FN, and CLP-300--the fix is always the same. Replace the pickup roll's rubberband. This can be done without taking the whole unit apart. I'll try to post a link to a pdf with specific instructions and photos, at least for the CLX-3160

Hi, I have had the same problem. I took a look at the "rubber band" and decided it wasn't warn too badly. After an hour or so of fiddling, i tried some different paper, and the printer worked just fine. Before taking your printer apart, I would suggest trying Laser printer paper, it turns out every time I try to use inkjet paper, the printer isn't able to pick up the paper, thinks it is jammed, and stops.

I also had this problem, but couldn't unclip the roller - so instead I placed 4 small nails firmly under the rubber band giving it more leverage. And the printer works like a charm !

The spare part is actually just the rubber band. Part number JC97-02647A mentioned previously is actually the whole axle, wheel, clip, and rubber band assembly. The rubber band is listed as a "Service Available" component, and is part number "JC73-00211A RUBBER-PICK_UP" and can be seen on page 8-17 in box 67 (part 67-5) on the service manual for this printer - available from http://www.mk-electronic.eu/hersteller/PDFDokumente/Samsung/Color-Drucker/CLP-300.pdf
Rotating the rubber band, as described by a previous poster, fixed this issue of the reported "paper jam" caused by the paper not feeding it at all, or feeding in just a couple of inches.
Mine wore out after around 2,000 pages of typical Laser Printer branded paper.
One other thing to note is that I found the only way I could remove the part that holds the rubber band was by pushing a precision screwdriver in between the flexible clip (part of the wheel itself) and the bit it clips onto on the part that the rubber band wraps around, and rotating the screw driver to force them apart. It looks like the clip is designed to be unclipped with finger pressure, as the flexible part has rectangular plastic pads on them that look like they're meant for pressing by a finger. I just couldn't get inside deep enough to press them. It all clipped back into place a lot more easily than it came off.

It solved my problem. Thanks Pawling.

This thread is good, I removed the boot on mine and simply turned the tire inside out and out it back on. Worked like a charm. You have to undo the clips on each side of the roller I used a fine knife to get between the roller body and roller and push out.
