9 times out of 10 here you got a faulty autofeeder sensor.

the issue here is over time of feeding paper and the like these printers need service. The service they need is not what they get all the time. Not many can take up a serivce contract in this dieing economy so thus you got a total failure.

replace the sutofeeder sensor ($75 bucks labor not included) Since you caanot feed paper at all the likely hood of a quick fix is not going to happen. you can try unplugging the unit and then plug it back in but i do not think that is going to cut it.

diagnosis:
auto feeder sensor and pickup

Prognosis:

Repair locally and part needed.

Samsung CLP-300 paper does not seem to be catching when printing?


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.

Hope this helps! Good Luck!

It wont print, says paper jam, yet there is no paper stuck anywhere? any suggestions?


Hi!

Try removing the cartridges and drum and clean the big grey roller as this picks up paper and if not it will show a paper jam without paper being in the machine!

Good Luck!

Laser printer manual feed jam


like the name goes, it is manual. You will have to feed the papers one after the other. if you do not want that, then load the papers into the automatic tray if you have one.
Incase none of the above works it means the roller that is suppose to pick the papers finds it hard to pass papers on to the other which you will have to replace.
good luck

Samsung CLP-300 picking up too many pages


Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. Paper jam is a very common problem with the printers.

First of all clean off the rubber piece that pulls the paper into the printer from the tray with rubbing alcohol, and also take a knife to the rubber piece to rough it up to create more traction.

To clear the paper jam problem you need to remove the back roller mechanism to get at paper. If still the problem persists, then check the following to resolve the issue--

1. Please check all interlocks, electrical and signal connections are seated properly.
2. Front cover, back cover and lid are closed properly.
3. Power plug and USB cable are connected.
4. Printer is turned on with switch on the back.
5. Toner signal lights sequenced, with yellow overall led on.
6. There is some noise of paper roller movement.
7. Toner signal lights all out, overall status light turned to red
8. No visible paper in paper tray or anywhere else.
9. No paper in tray---added paper
10. Waste toner container is full or not installed ---empty, installed properly.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

The printer will not pick up the paper!


Suggest you clean the pick-up rubber that lifts the paper.
And also lift up the front of your CLP-300 by about 3 inches. I put a box under the front. The paper will fed slightly downhill into the printer.
It works for me.
