Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

1 Answer

CLP 300 Printer fails to function

When I turn on the printer the status light shows a sequence of orange flashing followed a steady green light (as usual) but then after a couple of seconds the light goes red and the printer stops. There does not appear to be any fragments of paper jammed anywhere. I I have taken out the cartridge holder opened the back flap and sucked out the inside areas of the machine with a vaccum cleaner. None of this fixed the fault. The printer had been operating OK earlier in the day. Just before the jan I used a slightly thicker piece of printer paper which had type on one side. My attempt to be 'green' Can anyone suggest what to do next

The purpose of each light is described in the manual. Locate the manual and interpet the lights to determine what needs to be done. Manuals can be found at Samsung's website if you lost your manual.

Printer stops when printing should begin with red light in status


There is a few reasons that cause the status light to turn red, paper jam, paper empty, toner cartridge empty, cover open and waste toner cartridge full. The PC Smart panel utility should give you an exact fault condition. Hope this helps.

Canon i550 LED error sequence: 7 orange +1 green flash


According to Canon 7 orange flashes indicates a print head fault. Solution they recommend is to take it to one of their service agents. Problem is that replacement print heads are not cheap and it is usually more economical to replace the printer. You could try taking the print head to a cartridge refiller and have it professionally cleaned (cost you nothing or next to nothing) and see if that solves the problem.

My colour printouts from new Samsung CLP-310 do not match original WORD 2000 docs colours (or compared to HP deskjet. Is there a MS patch for this?


Hello,

There is an update for your printer. This is a firmware update. A firmware update, rewrites code located on the printer's main system board. The latest update is dated 10/17/08.

Flashing firmware does not have a go back element or undo, so it is really important that we verify your model and what seiries of printer you have. I suspect you have a CLP-300 Series printer and that the 310 of the 300 just describes some features added or left off and even who you purchased it from, in many cases.

Please look at these two photos and then post the data off the name plate for your model number in particular.

You will notice there are two lines to include in your reply.
1.) The Model: (first line)
2.) M/C entry (second to last entry in this photo of the label.

Once you verify this and I post the firmware update link for you, you will need to follow the instructions I include below.

Regards,
Worldvet
