Samsung clp300 only printing in black from my laptop using Vista over my network. The printer is connected to a deck computer using XP. Printer work fine on XP computer. I think if i connect directly to the laptop it work fine
If reported problem showing in text printing only:
Click Samsung CLP-300 series icon
Select driver program
Select Graphics tab
Select Color printing
Select Advanced options
Deselect Print all text black, OK
Save (optional favorite name), OK.
Note: Favorite print profile are stored for each individual user!
I had this problem too. My printer is connected to a PC running XP, and I share it over the wireless network with my Vista laptop. Every time I tried to print from my laptop it came out greyscale, no matter what setting I chose.
I solved the problem by uninstalling the shared printer driver from my laptop and reinstalling the *most recent* driver package for Vista which I downloaded from the Samsung website. I chose the "networked printer" option, networked UNC, and named it \\YourComputername\YourSharedSamsungPrinterName
This has fixed the problem - I suspect the early drivers produced by Samsung did not work that well.

There are many reasons that causes this printer to stop printing, like empty toner cart, full waste toner cart, paper jam. The only way to know for sure is to use the smart panel program to see what the printer is sensing as a problem and go from there. Hope this helps.
The cartridge dried out and the moisture/liquid sensor will no longer detect new fillings though the layer. A good refill needs to be done before the ink is out. These are tedious little critters. Try the nozzle cleaning procedure several times(through your printer's software. Take out the cartridge and set the jets on a cotton ball soaked liberally with cleaning fluid. Run the nozzle cleaning procedure again.
metering blade is gunked up. You need to dissasemble part of the imaging unit to fix the problem. Clean it. put it back together and BINGO! Like new. Do this before throwing money into buying a new imaging unit.. You can thank me when this works
if you used a non samsung toner cartridge replace it with another of a different brand or a samsung one. when it pushes the cover open look to see which toner cartridge is pushed out and replace that one
If you the image is faded and your toner supply is good, the problem is the developer blades in the imaging unit. During the normal use of the printer, there is a buildup of toner that sticks on the developer blade. The developer blade meters the amount of toner that gets to the drum that ultimately makes it to the paper. As the toner buildup increases on the blade, less and less toner that gets to the drum cause the image to fade.
To fix this problem you will need to disassemble the imaging unit and clean the blades or buy a new imaging unit. I have clean my blades and I don't have 20000 images it is about 7000 and I have a document to show you if you are handy.
