Colour print smears

My clp 300 is fairly new with moderate use, however when ever I print a colour image, the print is streaked and smeared. there is plenty of toner in the system and I have cleaned the internal area as described on the pdf user manual. Any ideas?

Smearing of printed image in color printing mode

many times this problem is caused by the type of paper being used, especially with photos, try a different paper, or change the type of paper in the print box when you try to print. the amount of toner used is determined by the paper type. if you are printing on glossy paper you might get the smearing if you didn't tell the printer to print on "glossy" Anyway, this is most likely where to problem can be solved. good luck

Color bands & streaks

I would replace the drum in this unit to resolve those issues. If you rub your hand on the print and it smears; then you need to replace the fuser too.

Streaks & Smears after changing toner cartridge.

Remove all of your toners and clean them off. Replace each one and make sure they are well setted in the unit before going to the next one. Make sure the carosel turns smoothly and nothing is hanging up on the sides. Reboot the whole printer and let it settle for 5 mins before printing. toners come lose sometimes when you turn carosel around. Hope this helps you these printers are a ***** to deal with ,but when they are right there great.

Black toner

I had the problems with white smear type fading on one side of the page , when pritning black, but colour printing seems OK. Did everything suggested in the manual and more. Changed toner. Been working on it a week.  (I got 2000 pages out of that thing). 
Now I have the solution. Bin the Samsung and buy a Canon.

Samsung CLP-300 dark prints and smears

For starters remember this is not meant to be a PHOTO Printer, I am guessing the Spearing is because Glossy paper does not hold the toner like Regular paper or at least until it is fused. I am a technitiian and i also own this printer.
