My Samsung CLP 310 won't come out of sleep mode preventing me from printing. How do I wake it up. There's nothing in the manual or in Samsung's troubleshooting guide.

I finally got my CLP325W waking up correctly from sleep, but I made a few changes at once and don't know for certain which one (or combination) worked. Here are my changes:
1. disabled the USB port. (I had originally set up the printer via this port).
2. disabled IPv6 support.
3. disabled the dynamic DNS registration.
4. enabled telnet (though I doubt this had any effect).

My setup uses a static ip address that is outside the range of the dynamic addresses my router assigns and I use a mac filter on my router without any problems.

    For me Disabling IPv6 did it.

I had faced the same problem, after the printer switched into the sleep mode, I could't wake him up. So I have checked why, and I could find a solution so far, then I have deactivated my mac address filter list of my router, and see it works, hmm, so I have checked the WIFI settings again and found the BSSID mac address, so I have added this address to my mac filtered list, and see bingo it works fine !
Hope hat helps, I found another solution which means when you have spaces in your SSID the printer can't wake up as well, but I can't confirm this problem.

    Unfortunately the problem got not solved. I have figured out, when the printer switched into the sleep mode, I can't still reach the printer. Ok, it seems not a printer problem, because when I restart my WIFI router (an Apple Airport extreme) the printer is reachable !! Therefore I have checked the router settings and found the parameter "WPA group key timeout", the default value is "1 hour", so I have increased the value to "1 day".

    I experience the same problem on the CLP 325W when on Wireless network.
    I can do one of the following:
    1. Restart the router and then it comes available...
    2. Wait for 10 minutes and then suddenly it comes online and the spooler will print...
    Annoying to have to wait, but at least it works in between.
    I upgraded to latest firmware too, but no change...

    The problem you have is the wifi router. set the security to WPA mode = Auto (wpa & wpa2) i had the same problem and used wpa2, and the printer wouldnt wake up. when using auto mode problem solved...

How can I wake up my printer which keeps going into the sleeping mode?

Rather than pressing the "Big Red Button", try just pressing the power button, once, for like, a second. Depending on your printer's age, you may just need a new one.

Printer problem with OS X 10.9 Mavericks

THE SAMSUNG CLP-310 is fully supported by Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The printer driver (like all nowadays) is supplied by Apple not the manufacturer. If you installed drivers/software from a disk, you need to put that disk back in and run the uninstaller. Be sure the printer is removed from the printer list in the Printing system prerefernce pane and then unplug and replug in the printer. If it does not show up automatically you may need to add it manually in the system preferences window (no big deal.)

I have a Samsung CLP-310 and I've mislaid the units manual. On the top of the unit down on the bottom right hand corner there are four (4) colour icons a yellow, red, blue and a grey, all which light up...

Here is the link to the manual, it says that the flashing light is PROBABLY caused by lack of toner and the first step is to replace/replenish the corresponding flashing light to the toner. It explains that when the light turns stys on all the time the toner will be empty.
With regards to the paper jamming, there is 3 pages on things to do or try.

I hope this gives you a few ideas
