Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Beeping from Power Module

I have a Samsung CLP300. I unfortunately bought the thing off ebay, as new, or some I'm told. Its was printing fine to start with but after I left it on over night when I came back to it I could hear a intermittent beeping / chirping.

Tried reinstalling drivers etc however at this stage I new it was a hardware problem anyway.

I noticed that whn I opened the case however it the LED panel turned on, the computer recognised it and the beeping stopped. But closing the cover dropped the power once more and the beeping stopped, with the computer once again not recognising it.

So I approached Samsung in the US and in the UK (am based in the UK) but without solution. Normally faults are reported on the LED panel covering things like jams, toner, cover open etc.

So in vain I started to disassemble, with the aid of a service manual. I found where the sound was coming from, it was the Power Module positioned front left of the main board making the sound, from what looks like some sort of capacitor?

I have found someone that can supply a new power module and it seems easy enough to replace but wanted to check if anyone else had come across the problem first before I put money into a problem which may not yield a solution. After all I only paid so much for it.

Be really grateful of some guidance.

Many Thanks
Mike

Is there an inexpensive manual avail for TDC Vivid Mainliner 300 slide proj.?


I see manuals on eBay for around $14 but nothing cheap or free. It's unfortunately one of those that is just rare enough that nobody wants to cut anything lose. Sorry... You might try a Google search if you are having a specific problem - sometimes you can find a support or community forum that has a thread about the issue.

Good luck

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

LSU error SAMSUNG SCX 4725FN


Laser Scanner Unit or LSU is what writes to the surface of the drum. The glass above the cartridge in the machine may be dirty. The mirror motor in the LSU could be bad or needs to be cleaned to spin better. The Laser diode may be faulty.

This is not a user-serviceable issue. You will need to contact Samsung for a service. You can do it online via Samsung website or contact the vendor to see who will they appoint to service the printer to, especially if it is still under warranty.

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
