    I have the same problem!!. I have a CLP-300 printer connected to a Windows vista laptop and it only prints black!! no colours!!!

    If i connect CLP-300 to a desk Windows xp computer, it works!!

    I am getting crazy because i have checked everything, even color option, and it seems that the controller is not working properly.

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.

Hello, I was printing a 30 page document on my samsung CLP300 printer and it quit printing after 20 pages. It does not indicate that it has a low ink cart. and I see no signs of a paper stuck anywhere (I...

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.

Samsung clp300 color laser printer not printing

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.

Pring quality on Samsung CLP-300 colour laser

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.

Network printe on vista

Accessing a Shared Printer To access a shared printer from a computer running Windows Vista, do the following:
  1. Click Start, and then click Network. The Network window displays a list of computers in the workgroup of the computer.
  2. Double-click the name of the computer containing the shared printer that you want to access.
  3. Right-click the shared printer that you want to access, and then click Connect. Alternately, you can double-click on Printers to see just the list of shared printers, and then right-click the shared printer that you want to access, and then click Connect.
After you have connected to the shared printer, you will be able to print to this shared printer as long as the printer and the computer sharing the printer are turned on.

please note that in network the computer that has the network printer if it is running XP may take as long as 15minutes to be recognized.
