Hi. Kelly, I think the issue is the due to paper pick-up roller. When the
rollers get dirty or worn-out, the printer fails to pick the paper,
which results in paper jam etc.. So, remove the paper tray and toner
cartridge and locate the paper pick up roller in the middle. Clean it
with damp (with luke-warm water) and lint-free cloth. I hope this would fix the issue. If the Roller is damaged or worn out, it needs to be replaced.
This is a very common problem with the Samsung CLP 300 and CLX 3160 printers. What happens is that the toner or developer blades become coated with toner. The developer blades meter the amount of toner that the printer uses to make the image on the paper. When the blade become blocked, the image become faint. To fix this problem, you and either replace the imaging unit for about $100 or you can clean the blades yourself. I have posted instructions how to clean them on my Tips section.
Clean the feed roller.
Remove the paper tray, from the bottom there is a grey rubber semi wheel in the middle front of where the paper tray would be. Use a cloth with WD-40, brake cleaner, or lighter fluid to lightly wipe the rubber clean. Put the paper tray back in and it should print.
For starters remember this is not meant to be a PHOTO Printer, I am guessing the Spearing is because Glossy paper does not hold the toner like Regular paper or at least until it is fused. I am a technitiian and i also own this printer.
The Yellow ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper. The Magenta ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper. The Cyan ink cartridge yield is up to 300 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper. The Black ink cartridge yield is up to 350 pages @ 600 x 150 dpi when printing at 5% coverage on A4 sized paper.
so it appears that what you are experiencing is not normal and you may have a leaking printer.
There is one thing you can check though, everytime you print, make sure that you are not printing at the highest quality option selectable as this almost certainly will fire out more ink than regular printing... choose a middle quality option or even draft option if you will be printing regular text.
I would recommend using the thick paper settings, also just pull on the front of the tray and then you need to remove the paper in there and then adjust the guides to fit the paper, also if you are using A4/Ltr/lgl then you will also need to collapse the back section by pushing down on buttons and then pushing on the back to shorten the unit
Also remember that this printer was not designed for photo printing, also make sure to place the paper face up(the side you want to print on)
