    system reboots when try to print on clp300

  • aapold Dec 19, 2008

    computer reboots when I print. Or even turn on the printer. Tried hooking printer up on a different outlet, computer on a UPS, same thing. running vista 32 home.

    I can print fine to it from a laptop running the same OS.

    connecting via USB. Once the computer rebooted when I plugged the printer in, even without the USB cable being connected yet. Sounds like something electrical.

Wow, Thanks for the info. I thought it was the printer too but It was the breaker. I have it plug it into a surge protector and everytime the printer wakes up it reboots my computer. The funny thing is that when I use my laptop to print it doesn't reboot it.

I noticed this issue also. Initially, I thought it was the printer. However, I found that I was overloading the electrical outlets that were on a 15 amp breaker. With my computer and the CLP printer, and two to three other items on the same circuit, the computer defaulted to power down due to the overload.

Samsung CLP 300 Error #12288 Unable to create tempfile

I suggest you download the latest version of the print drivers, uninstall the old ones first. Also, check to see if your program has any updates. Does it do it on other programs as well?

If so, there is a driver issue not properly talking to Vista.
If it works on other programsl, its related to the program itself.

thanks adi
