Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

Concern about Power Consumption

I recently was given the CLP-300. I noticed the power consumption is listed at 350W. I have read a few posts over the net that the power supply may be an issue. I noticed quite a load in regular 120 outlets. First, do I need a 220? or what is best way to handle the load? Or, do I have a lemon?

    put what? to sleep. I'm taking it back. It shouldn't heat up and smell like it has electrical issues.

  • Craig Davis Dec 28, 2007

    Yes, thanks. I worked out an alternative power outlet that can hold load and is working fine.

All laser printers draw a large amount of watts to heat the fuser, it is a quatz halogen lamp that heats up metal rollers to melt the toner into the paper.

All fusers in laser printers give of a smell (burning metalic electical ozonee smell) mostly when new, Fusers run at high temps and parts burn in a little.

No issue with power supply any more than any laser printer ie none

As with any device that heats up you will see a draw on a 115 volt outlet depending on what else is on the same BREAKER, not outlet. 350 watts is only about 3A compared to some hairdryers that exceed 15A. A 220 unit would help but not much. I suggest making sure you "put it to sleep" as soon as possible after printing unless you are just constantly printing and can't wait for the warm ups.

    Sorry about that I missed the fact that it was new from somewhere that it could be returned or that it smelled like it had electrical issues. When I say put it to sleep I mean that most printers go nearly off when not in use for a while; ie they no longer warm up the components until a print request is received. For example an average desktop printer I looked up used 450W when warming up or actually printing, 70W on stand-by, but only 5W when asleep.

How much power does it consume?

It is only possible to get a total figure of the power a computer uses by external measurement, i. e. use of a device that measures such. There are expensive power supply units that do measure consumption in the $500 range, as well. A ballpark figure for consumption is between 65 and 300 watts. No software can provide the total figure although there is software than can measure power consumption of a CPU. Here is a link to a relatively inexpensive device which can measure devive power consumption:

Power Consumption by CRT monitors

<span>Frequent PC users especially desktop PC's with CRT monitors has to be very careful in using the CRT monitors as that consumes more power than other types of monitors in market.</SPAN><br> <span>Recent research has found the CRT monitors to be consuming 60-80 watts of power for a normal 15 inch monitor compared to 25-35 watts for LCD. The power consumption is almost double in CRT's. If you consider 17-19 inch monitor the power consumption in CRT's might go up to 100-150 watts roughly.</SPAN><br> <span>It is advisable for more than 1 CRT monitor users to keep the monitors switched off when not in use so the power consumption is reduced.</SPAN><br>

I have a built in single oven do i need to change the wire when i put in a double oven

In order to answer this question we need to see the power consumption that you will have.

So in general if you use just one of the 2 ovens at any given time (not parallel usage), no need to change it.
But if you plan to use them both in parallel, you have to check the power consumption.
See the table attached:

If you cave a cable of 0.2294 inc / 5.82676 mm (most usual case), this cable can carry up to 75Amp. So if you have a 110v power line, this is 75x110=8.2kw.
Check if the sum of your ovens are less than 8.2kw. If so, you are fine. If not, install a 2nd wire.

Feel free to ask more if you know exactly the power consumption of your ovens and the dimensions of your cable.

Natural gas consumption chart 4 1m gas power generator waukesha

NG consumption will be specific to the generator itself. Your best bet would be to consult the user manual, or at the very least, post the model #.

A very loose rule of thumb is that if your generator consumes 1 gallon of fuel at a certain load, it will consume 100CCF (aka 1 Therm) of NG, or 1 gallon of propane.

The numbers that you are stating are WAY above Stanly power generators, are in a class that is considered to be Commerical Equipment.

Checking power consumption

you need a clamp on amp probe, a multimeter wont hack it. if you can get a amp probe, you first seperate the wires on your cord and then place the probe over one of the wires only this will give you your consumption. by the way, your approx usage of watts on a 26 inch lcd tv would be 160 watts. models do vary.

Want To Replacing My Toshiba A10-S330 Hard Disk


Normally you can upgrade to a new hard disk to the next bigger size, so from 40 Gb, then perhaps a 60 or even an 80 would work. Even if the BIOS/motherboard would not recognized the new size, Windows XP would and be able to access it.

However, I don't think that the size should really be the main concern. I think that your selection should be based primarily on the power consumption. Most laptops have a preset power distributed to its devices. If you are going to use a bigger size HD with a bigger power consumption, Windows (or even your BIOS) might recognize it but the power distribution might be over worked.

My suggestion would then be go to the next size but keep in mind the power rating/consumption of the old when selecting.

I am enclosing an image of my laptop's HD. Pls note the rating DC+5V 0.7A for this 60Gb HD. The 0.7A is its current consumption/rating.


Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
