Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Pinter only works on it's side

My printer gives a "door open: error unless I put it on it's side. I can actually hear a switch click when I do this. I've found a switch in the back of the printer (the one the back door pushes on when it is closed). Can anyone tell me where this other "door" switch is supposed to be?

Canon pixma mx892 front door flap broke - was printing but now I get lots of clicking noises and then a message telling me to power off. The rear paper tray does work but lots of clicking.

What's the error message? Did it give you an error number?

My first thought: That printer detects if the front door is fully open, and if it's not, it gives you an error message and makes you turn it off and on. So look at the hinges where the door was connected and see if you can see the switch that tells the printer whether the door is open. Then figure out how to move that switch to the "open" position.

I hate that front door.

Printer HP 1315 shows "Door Open" and does not respond to printing call

This is a more common occurrence than you might expect. The "door" referred to in the error message is actually the portion of your machine that must be lifted up in order to gain access to the ink cartridges for replacing them. You will notice that a protrusion on the lower side of the "door" surface fits into an opening in the surface below the door when the door closes, and this contacts with the door status switch to close the contacts on the switch, telling the machine that the "door" is closed. If indeed the door is fully closed, with nothing obstructing the switch from performing, then that would indicate that either the switch is defective or has come loose. After replacing cartridges, the "door" must be fully closed or you will see the error message. For troubleshooting procedures to solve this problem, go to this link:

A test print page may show distorted characters at the beginning, but the characters should be shown correctly towards the end of the test page. If this is not the case then I would suspect that at least one of your cartridges is not seated properly. Open the cartridge access "door," and check the cartridge positions. When you remove and replace a cartridge, the new cartridge should be pushed back as far as it will go and then the front end of the cartridge lifted until you hear it snap into place. When seated properly, the top of the cartridge will be level.

Brady TLS2200 won't feed labels. no errors.

Turn off the printer and open the printer back door. Use a spot light and look inside properly. Make sure there no paper. Some times a small piece of paper creates the problem. Then after open the back door, top side turn the printer upside down . So if anything is inside it will come out.
After cleaning again connect it with PC and turn on. Now give a look. If you face same problem then Un-install the printer driver and software from the PC. Then restart the PC and Printer both. Now connect the Printer with PC via USB and install again the driver & software (Check if there are any new drivers on the website) .

ERROR:0Xc0620004 HP 1610

Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Power off the printer by removing the main power plug. 
2. At the back of the printer if it is a HP printer, there is usually a little back door (latched on both sides). Open that door and you will be able to get the rest of the paper out. 
3. If you have a duplexer, then that back door wont be there. You will need to remove the duplexer - just press the unlatch button and take off the duplexer. Again, clear the paper out.
4. Put back either the back door or the duplexer securely - until you hear the click sound. 
5. Plug your printer back on and switch it on. 
Please post comments for more help or information.......

Good Luck!!

Open door cariadge jam

this error generally comes in when there is actually a paper jam or it gives a false paper jam.. so first of all make sure that these should not be any paper stuck inside the printer.. clean all the paper rollers with a little moist lint free cloth.. then plug the printer directly to the wall jack for the power supply if not connected..
if it doesnt resolve the issue.. we may have to perform a reset as well ..

The E020 error refers to a 2nd BTR transfer roller control gap malfunction.
You can try opening door AB and then reseat the roller (with the green levers) located in the door that comes down. Failing this you will need
an engineer to resolve the issue
