Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Won't complete cycle

When I turn on the printer, it attempts to cycle normally. It only gets halfway through the cycle, making all the usual noises, then just stops. The red light on the top stays lit. Opening and closing all doors, trays, etc. doesn't change anything. It's only a few months old, and has been working normally until recently. Without replacing the cartridge, I'm at a loss. Any ideas or suggestions appreciated.

The check print cartridge light is on and won't go off even after changing both ink cartridges


This could be a number of problems. Depending on the printer and ink, you may have to power cycle it (turn it off and then back on after a minute). Many printers nowadays also have you do an alignment page. You may want to attempt to do an alignment page if your printer has that functionality built in. If that doesn't work, as silly as it sounds, check to make sure both ink cartridges are locked into place securely, even if you need to remove them and put them back in.

Hi Paul,
I have exactly the same problem and I also use Permajet (like you, successfully for a while). In fact I took the printer into a shop that does maintenance but it printed fine for them. As soon as I got it home the problem started inmediately! At random points in the print you get a crunching noise and the print has vertical marks on it. The engineer at the shop had no idea what this could be and I just wondered if you had solved it.
I've swapped cables, installed it on different machines but nothing works.
Kind regards
John

Here's something to try, it's actually the drum reset and if it's the drum that needs replacing then this will get you going again. Just remember that if you reset this that eventually the drum will start having quality issues because you will be using it past its end of life cycle getting more use out of it then normal and it won't hurt the machine either... hope this helps and if so, please mark Fixya

1) Turn off the power using the switch on the back of the printer. Open the front door of the printer.

2) Hold Continue button down, power on the printer, and continue to holding Continue down until the LEDs begin to flash. When the LEDs start to flash, release Continue button. The LEDs will continue flashing until only Error LED will be lit.

3) Close the front door. Continue, Ready/Data, Toner Low and Load Paper LEDs should be lit.

4) Wait till the printer completes the POST process. POST is complete when fan noise and rollers stop. After POST wait for 5 seconds

5) Press Cancel button 4 times slowly until the Toner Low LED is lit. This is the procedure resetting the counter.

6) Press and hold Continue until all LEDs begin to cycle in sequence, then release Continue. Now only the Toner Low LED will be lit.

7) Cycle the power of the printer (turn it off and then back on).

I have a samsung CLX 3175 FW printer. Paper jams halfway through print cycle. Nothing in mech to stop - appears to be limit switch fault? If you turn the printer off and on it clears paper


The limit switches are just flags that block or unblock photo sensors. Try blowing the printer out with some canned air, paper dust on these sensors is a common cause of these problems.

Never ever touch the printer while upgrading the firmware.
You now need to replace the formatter
  • DO NOT power cycle the printer or the PC during this process or the printer may become unstable and or unusable without further attention from HP . The firmware update can take up to 5 minutes to complete. Please be patient.
  • During the printer firmware update, the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the printer control panel will display "Printing Document" and will change to "Erasing". After a short while, the LCD display will change to "Programming". After a short while, the LCD will display "complete : )" and the "Ready" LED on the printer will be flashing. The printer will automatically power cycle to reboot and will make noises similar to power on.

When I turn on the power to the printer, the print carriage cycles to the right as normal then carriage sticks and begins to continually chatter.....at the same time the light bar on the scanner trys to...


There is usually a sensor on one side or the other of the carriage. When you power up the machine, the carriage will be moved to that end, setting off the sensor. Then it will move back and forth to test carriage motion. If the end sensor is faulty, the carriage will still attempt to move until it triggers the sensor, but when it gets to the extreme end, the motor will continue to attempt to move it, causing the chatter. After a time, it will stop with an error message.

Look at the carriage where the cartridges are, and you should see some kind of tab or ear on it. If it's broken, then you may get the symptoms I mentioned above. Also if you can see the sensor, make sure that it's not broken or moved out of place.

Pulled out paper & broke the printer


There is a part of the printer that looks like a roller (sorry I can't remember the name now) but you may know it. It rolls over the papers to pick one at a time and forward that to the printing segment. If you can reach it, try (gently) to adjust it into place (or normal position). It probably rotated half cycle or so when you forced the paper out. It needs to complete the cycle in order to tell that there is paper. I am using experience from laser printers so bear with me. But that's what usually causes such problems after **** occassions.

Makes grinding sounds & usually prints blank


Try new toner cartridge, or even the old one if you still have it. Check if the grinding noises go away.
