Most probably you took one of the paper sensors out of place. Any printer technician can happily put it back.

SOURCE: Samsung CLP-300N Laser Printer will not print, etc

We just had a similar problem in my office. Our Captain's printer was giving a solid red light. After replacing all four toner cartridges and disassembling it to look for paper jams, dirty contacts or dirty paper jam sensors I looked at the manual. I noticed something about the waster toner cartridge, which was a problem on another printer that I had fixed before, but I hadn't thought of that option yet. I yanked the waste toner cartridge, which is to the left side of the toner cartridges when looking from the front. It was full.

At this point you have two options: get a new one or clean the old one. Being thrifty and wanting to fix it immediately, I dumped all the old toner out and used long q-tips with alcohol wipes on the end to clean out the sensor windows which the printer uses to sense if it is full or not. THESE NEED TO BE PRISTINE! There is a very thin piece of plastic, that I suspect is an LED light filter, that will also need to be cleaned. This is also inside the waste toner cartridge.

This may or may not be your error, but this fixed it for me.

SOURCE: Linux drivers for Samsung SRP 350 Plus Thermal Printer

This was originally a Samsung printer, and they had plans to release a Linux driver. However after some corporate games it's now owned by Bixolon, and everything Linux has been axed.

The problem seems to be with your printer. Try doing a head clean within the software options and also printing a test page.

If this fails please check nothing is jammed and the printer wheels are turning.

If this doesn't solve your problem then maybe your printer is faulty.

Kind Regards

Please help with the following: Printer BIXOLON SRP 350 IG When I turn it on Power light: Green Error light: Red Paper light: Red The printer "beep ... beep" continously

Looks like you'll have to contact Samsung

The operators manual does not give any indication about what to look for if the error light is on.

Here's what the manual states about the paper light:
This light indicates the near end of the paper roll. Install a new paper roll and the printer will continue printing. When the light blinks, it indicates the self-test printing standby state or macro execution Standby state when the macro execution command is used.

I have developed an ms access POS. When i print receipt to samung thermal printer srp 350 ver 2, it prints very slow. i have tried several drivers but i end up with the same slow printing problem. I am...

itecghana, printing slow is probably an issue of the interface type (serial, parallel, usb, ethernet...) and not the printer itself. The Bixolon 350 has a self test printout capability (turn on printer while holding down the feed button) which'll demonstrate the print speed capability of the printer.
My guess is you have a serial interface (COM port), serial is notoriously slow when printing via any windows driver.
If the printer you have is a 350, one solution is to change the interface card on the printer from Serial to USB. The part number of the USB interface card is IFA-U Type, can buy one for about 35 bucks online.

If the print test works, then that rules out cables, etc. Definitely sounds like a comm setting issue. The most common problem with swapping serial printers is incorrect baud rate. Is that winpos from quest in Aus? I think they might use 9600 baud. You change the printer baud rate using the dipswitches under the panel on the bottom of the printer.

SRP 270 feed 10 cm of paper before printing

Does this happen with all applications? This may be due to the header/footer and margin settings in y our application. You can try opening notepad (Start -> Run -> Accessories -> Notepad) and entering a bunch of text into it. Then print it up and see if there is still all the extra space. If it prints normally, then adjust the margins in your other applications. If it is still not operating correctly, try running the printer diagnostics program to re-calibrate the printer.
