  1. You need to rotate the rubber band on the feeder roll to a fresh surface. Start by turning off the printer, disconnecting it from power & data feed.
  2. Remove the two screws from the back panel and press the small tabs to pull the back panel off.
  3. Open the front of the machine and remove the two screws that hold the top panel in place. Take note of how the sheet feeder sits in this assembly. The sheet feeder is not screwed in, but rather held in by the other pieces.
  4. Remove the toner cartridge and set aside.
  5. There are four screws that go through the metal plate now visible at the top. Leave the wires connected and remove these screws. Take note that there is a grounding cable that needs to be reconnected.
  6. You need to remove that top assembly, so take note of how the roller fits into the black tie rod that actually turns the roller. I found that lifting the unit up and sliding it to the right (as viewed from the back) disconnected the roller from the tie rod.
  7. Remove one screw from the roller pickup assembly and disassemble the roller.
  8. Note that one side of the rubber band is shinier than the other. This is the problem. Carefully work the rubber band off, rotate it 180 degrees and slide it back on to the roller.
  9. Reassemble and test

I cannot print from my Mac to a Samsung printer - and the Samsung web site does not have any printer drivers for this device on their web site. Any idea how to fix it?


Looks like that printer is not supported anymore. You can try downloading the driver for the newer model ML 1440 and see if that works:

Cannot print on new Macbook with Leopard Mac OS - need driver


I just upgraded to snow leopard and my previous driver was erased, so I did some digging around and found the right driver (it is not included even in the most recent GutenPrint software).
Look at the Global Samsung website - the US Samsung site does not support MacOS drivers.
http://www.samsung.com/download/FileView.aspx?cttfileid=213919&type=Printer&typecode=15&subtype=Laser+Printer&subtypecode=1501&model=ML-1430&filetype=DR&language=
Your OS should ask to install Rosetta to read the file (Zip), but then the install is quick and easy. The printer driver immediately showed up in the printer>setup>driver menu. Prints without a hitch.
Haven't booted my laptop into 64bit kernel, so I don't know if the driver is 64bit compatible - I expect not. Hope this helps.

You need a device called a wireless print server. Some sources are www.tigerdirect.com or www.newegg.com, or you can check pricewatch.com, look for units being sold on eBay.

Samsung ML 1430 - won't print; paper light flashes


Tuesday, October 17, 2006 Samsung ML-1430 Won't Feed Paper My printer had stopped feeding paper reliably a while ago. This had reduced me to manually pushing each sheet of paper into the machine until the roller caught it. Which, in turn, often resulted in many explicatives directed towards said printer.

All in all I like the Samsung ML-1430, which has been discontinued. It was pretty inexpensive, the toner cartridges aren't too bad considering I really have gotten thousands of pages (at Staples, which has a wicked good customer loyalty program, IMHO).

However, after only two years, there is this feed problem. I found the answer in an Amazon posting (thank you brs for posting this). Here is the solution from there:

  1. You need to rotate the rubber band on the feeder roll to a fresh surface. Start by turning off the printer, disconnecting it from power & data feed.
  2. Remove the two screws from the back panel and press the small tabs to pull the back panel off.
  3. Open the front of the machine and remove the two screws that hold the top panel in place. Take note of how the sheet feeder sits in this assembly. The sheet feeder is not screwed in, but rather held in by the other pieces.
  4. Remove the toner cartridge and set aside.
  5. There are four screws that go through the metal plate now visible at the top. Leave the wires connected and remove these screws. Take note that there is a grounding cable that needs to be reconnected.
  6. You need to remove that top assembly, so take note of how the roller fits into the black tie rod that actually turns the roller. I found that lifting the unit up and sliding it to the right (as viewed from the back) disconnected the roller from the tie rod.
  7. Remove one screw from the roller pickup assembly and disassemble the roller.
  8. Note that one side of the rubber band is shinier than the other. This is the problem. Carefully work the rubber band off, rotate it 180 degrees and slide it back on to the roller.
  9. Reassemble and test
This repair took less than 20 minutes and I expect that it will last another two years of rather heavy usage.

BTW, brs on Amazon also provided a repair part number: JC72-00109A. However, searching on Samsung for this part yielded nothing. I suspect this is due to the machine being discontinued.

Have fun!
