Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

1 Answer

The black printing comes out light, more so on the left side of the page. I replaced the toner cartridge once, and I think it was dried up. I replaced it with a new one and it is still doing the same thing - light printing. The colors do fine.

If it is a dry toner cartridge you could try shaking it back and forth to spread out the toner evenly with in the case. Then replace and try it again. If that doesnt work the cartridge itself might be defective. Try a different one.

Here is my solution, hope it will solve your problem.

From your post, I believe your CLP-350N printer has enough black toner. The black cartridge is on the far right side of the printer, so the black toner is harder to go to left side of the roller than right side. Everytime we start the printer, it will move some toner of each color to the roller before it shows ready to print.

Because we always use B&W printing when we start the printer, but less Color printing. The result is there are always enough toner on the 3 color rollers, but the black toner is lean on the black roller. When this gets worse, the left side of the black roller may hardly get any toner at all -- so it only print black on the right side fo paper.

Step by step solution
(CAUTION: Never loss balance while tilting printer! You may drop and damage your printer! Hold the printer firmly all the time! Ask someone to help you if needed!)

Here, front of the printer is where you can access the cartridge, back of the printer is where you connect the power cord and USB cable, left is your left, right is your right.

1.Lift the front to keep the printer tilt to its back at about 45 degree
2.Power on printer while it's tilted back, wait untill green light is on
3.Open the front door, red light will be on, then close the door, printer will start up again,wait untill green light is on
4.Repeat step 3 once again, then put the printer back to level position
5.Lift the right to keep the printer tilt to its left at about 45 degree
6.Open the front door, red light will be on, then close the door, printer will start up again, wait untill green light is on
7.Repeat step 6 once again, then put the printer back to level position
8.Print some test page to see if there is any improvement of black print quality.(Hold the printer button for 3-5 seconds, it will print the test page.)

You may try several times and print several pages each time before you finally cure the problem.

Good luck! And do it safely!

Everyone will tell you that it's the Imaging Unit - happy to say that's not true. If it was the imaging unit the colors would not come out right either. I bet if you print a test page that all the colors come out fine across the page. It's only the black.

Also - if you replace the black toner cartridge, or reinstall your printer and drivers like some people will tell you - still no results.

The problem is in the black toner cartridge PATH inside the printer. Something has jammed it up a bit. Try taking out the black cartridge and blowing firmly into the small hole at the bottom of the spout that looks to have a sponge inside. Use a straw and make sure your air blown is dry. Then lightly tap the cartridge a few times. Then use the straw and once again blow very firmly inside the receiving path (inside the printer) for the spout on the cartridge. Make sure you are blowing into the spout path at the bottom - not the gear drive path in the middle - as that will not do any good.

Replace the cartridge, warm up and print another black and white page. You should see that the faded out section is gone or diminished in size. If it is not gone, simply repeat the above steps until it is gone. You will see that the faded out strip gets smaller and smaller each time until it's gone. I had to repeat five times, but eventually got it corrected. Now prints like brand new so don't get discouraged.

Is there a override function to keep printing when toner alerts are on?Wondering since black still shows 30%.


These printers will still print when any or all of the toners are LOW, but if any one of them is EMPTY (according to the chip on the toner cartridge) printing stops.

Standard capacity toners ere 2000 page for the colours, and 3000 page for the black, so they can soon be used up.

Much cheaper per page printed, if you use the high capacity cartridges (6000 page for the colours, and 8000 page black).

There are high quality remanufactured cartridges available now, as good as OEM, and typically you'll get a Hi Capacity Remanufactured cartridge for the same sort of price as a Std Capacity OEM cartridge.

As a short term solution at a lower cost than replacement cartridges, you could just replace the cartridge CHIP. The printer would then think the toner was full (there'll likely to still be some toner in it), so you'll be able to print. Don't run the printer like this for ever though, as the toner has some lubricant properties, and with a TRULY EMPTY cartridge, you'll eventually do some damage to the cartridge, and then possibly the transfer belt (and you don't want to be changing that until it's rated 100,000 page life is up.
