There are two possible solutions for this problem.
Usually it is due to the pickup roller wearing or becoming contaminated with toner or paper dust.
Simple solution, clean the pickup roller, the best thing for this is WD40, put a very small amount on a clean cloth and wipe the roller underneath the printer. Use a clean dry piece of cloth to wipe off any residue.
More complicated solution, remove the roller and reposition, you will need two small flat-bladed screwdrivers to pry apart the retaining clips, remove the roller, a tight squeeze beneath the laser housing, reposition and clean as above then refit the roller. You should find that the paper is picked up cleanly once again.

I hope this helps,

Check the waster toner cartridge. I was about to ditch my clp300 until I found this solution. Apparently the "paper jam" indicator can also indicate a slew of other anomalies:

-The printer is experiencing an error, such as jammed paper, open cover, empty paper, not installated [sic] waste toner container, or ***full waste toner container.***
-The printer is experiencing a service required error, such as LSU error, fuser error, or ITB error. Contact your sales or service representative.


The Waste toner cartridge is largish "L" shaped gray thing to the left of the toner cylinders. The manual says to replace it, but I was able to simply dump it out in the trash, wipe of and re-install.

I own this printer and the paper tray feed mechanism is very tricky. Once you remove the paper tray to refill, it takes some time to align the paper correctly for it to feed. The way I do it is add the paper and the tray has a riser in the front bottom of the tray. You have to push this down. Then you insert the paper tray into the printer. Then you slightly pull the tray back until you hear it click as this is the riser disengaging from the bottom of the tray. I then gently push the tray back in. I then flip the clear cover on the tray back and very gently push the stack of paper forward then I move the guide to snug against the back of the paper. I then run a blank page test to make sure it's feeding. I've found once you get the first one to feed the rest will feed.

Tried all the above, no go. used a small amount of wd40 on the click mechanism at the far end of the papertray. It may be this was just a bit stiff, and all was ok after that. But maybe the wd40 on the paper just hadn't had time to work.

Best of luck!

Hi I suggest to check the paper guides are against the paper correctly especially the back fence once you have tried this using one piece of paper soak the first two inches in a alcohol based cleaning solution then try printing. The printer will jam open top cover and then close it and let the machine try and print again and it will jam again repeat the above a few more times then open paper draw remove paper and wipe dry the cassette. You will notice on the paper a dirty scuff mark where the paper pickup roller cleaned itself on the solution.

Place some fresh paper in the cassette and try printing. Hopefully the printer will take paper now.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Look in from the end with paper tray inserted and see if the paper is lifted up at far end.... If not the tray probably has broken pieces and needs to be replaced.

Samsung CLP-300 printer not printing, the paper tray will not pick up the paper.


Often the rubber pickup roller is either worn or dirty. It is located just above the paper tray. Use a damp cloth and try to cleaning it, sometimes that helps. Otherwise you will need to replace the roller.

My printer doesn't grab the paper and then the paper gets jammed. Help!


The problem is most likely the paper feed roller is either worn or dirty. It is located in the back and above the paper tray. Try cleaning it with a damp cloth and see if that makes it work better.

I cant get the machine to grab the paper and it says its out of paper, yet its not out of paper.


Hi, the Ip3000 has 3 different feeding trays...
make sure that the printer is trying to "grab" the paper in the tray that you have chosen to use in the printer properties box...
when you give the print command can you see the rubber roller moving to grab the paper in the top feeder tray???
if the roller that feeds the printer is not moving you may have accidentally changed the settings to grab paper from the bottom tray...the one right under the door that opens to let printed pages out of the printer...
the 3rd feeder tray is the DVD/CD printing tray...
I suggest that you look at the printer Properties for remedial action...
hope this helps you with your problem...
cheers
haitchhcee
p.s.
suggest you place paper in the bottom tray before making adjustments to see if it is trying to grab the paper from there...

Not grabbing paper


Try cleaning the rollers again and fan the paper. When you clean the rollers, use alcohol and a lint free cloth. Don't put too many sheets in the feed tray.

Paper jam


I too have this infuriating problem and the reason has already been pinpointed very well it is indeed the front rubber pinch cam not grabbing the paper well. I have approached this problem from another angle... under the front sprung loaded flap on the paper tray
there are two compression springsapprx 1/2" in dia. Gently prise apart the 2 flap pivot (on the extended arms) to gain access to the springs ,pull out the springs and either replace them with slightly stronger ones or pull the existing springs apart to retension them and pop them back (long-nosed pliers or tweezers) this will restore the spring tension lost during use with the rubber pinch cam.

Try changing the printer toner cartridge first if not make sure that the paper of where the paper is stuck if under the toner cartridge check that there if there is any print on it and that it is entering the fuser section. If it has stopped at the fuser section then the possibility is that the fuser drive gear is broken or some teeth missing. If the paper is stuck before the toner cartridge then there maybe the pickup tyre dirty and not feeding correctly the other thing there maybe a sensor arm stuck down.

Try the above

Paper feed issues


The problem is what you already stated, the rollers are too smooth so they are not grabbing the paper to feed it.

Try this : clean with alcohol and a clean cloth very well and make a copy it will probably make one or two then jam.

order the tires and replace. should cost you about $20
