Samsung CLP-300 printer, very poor black coverage

I'm having the exact problem as SkyDog2 regarding his Mar 15 2010 problem with his Samsung CLP-300 printer very poor black coverage. And my printer has had just as little use as his i.e. I'm barely through the starter toner cartridges. Like SkyDog2 I also tried installing a new black toner no improvement. Samsung has no answers. I think this happened after I dumped the emptied the full waste toner container but not 100% sure. (samsung instructs replacing the container but no one sells them not even Staples where I bought the printer.) If this were an inkjet printer I would say it looked like a clogged print head. But this is of course a colored laser printer.

it is most likely your OPC Black Devloper is faulty which you will get uneven print out.

you will have to get it replace on the black dev (E)

laser printer got to run once every week if not the same issue will come back again & further more if your table is uneven it will cause this issue too.

My Samsung printer clp-300 gives very poor black printing. The color printing is OK. I replaced the cartridge, I shook it more than once, but still it does not print like it should. Does any one know a...

What do you mean that you get poor black printing? Is it faded on vertically, with one side of the page or or portions of the print faint? If so, the problem lies with the imaging unit, specifically the black developer blades. You can fix it by buying a new one. But eventually you need another one. This is the more expensive route. But, if you are handy you can clean it up yourself. If you look at my tips section, I have posted a detailed instructions to show you how you can do it yourself.

Samsung CLP-300 printer, very poor black coverage

Samsung printers are far from the best. I have the same printer and it needs a Fuser. The fuser part costs more than I paid for the printer and it's a little over a year old. Samsung will not sell me the part but will repair the printer for $135 plus the part which costs over $135. Shipping is $20. I only paid $141 for the printer. I'll stick with Epson and to hell with Samsung.
