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?

    Front Door? I just slapped my forehead. Of course!

    I thought I was hearing the clicking from the opposite corner, so I was concentrating of looking there for a switch! (Tshooting myopia)

    Yes, I found the offending switch and with just a small bit of electrical tape to extend the plastic piece that pushes it open, the printer works fine now. If it happens again, I'll adjust the switch location. Thanks.

    Well if you found the rear door switch then the other one is the front door switch, not usally known to be faulty most times it is the toner tubes or the entire cartridge not installed fully/correctly so door wont shut

    Check toners and their handles are sitting flush are they? Does pressing against front door also allow operation?

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.

Why microwave won't stop running unless door is open ?

Is it actually heating or just making noise and acting like it's heating? (put a cup of water inside and close the door.) IF it's actually heating, then you have a shorted relay on the main control board, and you will have to replace the board. IF it's just making noise like it's working, but it's not heating, then the problem is 1 of the door switches is not working right (it's either stuck open or stuck closed).

Nele, Perhaps you don't understand properly?
All doors flaps and locks of any importance do have control switches. If one switch is not activated, the pinter still thinks a door is open.
Just try to open all doors you know, and this time close them with a little force (little slam) perhaps the one switch now will engage?

Reattaching oven door to a whirlpool electric non built-in range- came out easy enough but the instructions in the manual say to insert both hanger arms into the door... don't have a clue what a hanger arm...

Try putting the hinges in the broil position. That's just slightly open at the top in the first detent. Line up the hinge arms with the slots in the side of the door and push the door down on them. You may not be pushing the door all the way onto the hinge arms. Don't be afraid to give the door a good push.

How to repair the problem on Canon Laserclass 9000L "check printer cover" alarm.

There are 4 doors that will cause the error. There are 2 on the right side of the printer. If you look closely, there is a white plastic switch on the right side of the doors. The toner door has a black plastic switch on the left side. Then there is the fuser access door on the other side of the printer that has a switch on the left side. Check the doors don't have any broken actuators that hit the switches. Check the switches by pushing on them manually.

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!!

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
