Where is the waste tank on a samsung CLP 300 laser printer?

Remove the waist toner bottle which is on the right of the drum as the cover is opened. Suggest emptying it inside a plastic bag to avoid breathing any of the toner dust. If you have time to make sure the container is dry inside, it may also be washed out with warm water and dried completely.

When i connect my printer samsung clp-300 , the light is green , there is no problem and since I try to print, the light turn to red, i don't understand why and what can i do

There is a lot of problems that can cause the light to turn red, such as paper jam, low toner, full waste toner tank, etc. The only real way to know what the printer is detecting is to use the smartpanel utility program. It should be able to tell you what the printer fault.

Waste tank full samsung 300 even though I emptied it

Samsung uses a photo diode that shines a light through the clear portion of the waste tank. Even if the tank is emptied, the toner sticks to the plastic, causing the light not to pass through. You can try to rinse the empty tank with a little soap and water. You don't have to get it completely clean, just enough to allow the light to pass. Then allow it to dry and put it back into the printer. Hope this helps you.

I emptied the waste toner and the red light is still on....samusng clp-300 which says that it is full

Sometimes just emptying the waste toner tank will not clear this fault. The printer uses a light sensor to determine when the tank is full. You will need a cotton swab and clean the part of the tank that the sensor is viewing the tank. Try to clean the clear window of the inside of the tank. It can be difficult since the placement of the window with respect to the tank opening. Other way is to try to wash out the inside of the tank with soap and water which can be messy but it will do a better job. Hope this helps.

Waste tank is full for my samsung CLP-300 printer. i don't know where is the waste tank located and how to clear the waste tank.

The waste tank is inside the front cover of the CLP 300 on the left of teh four toner drums. Itgoes down the side and then along the bottom. You can empty it into a bin and then reuse the same container. No need to buy a new one

Samsung clp 300 shows waste tank full

You will have to buy a new waste tank/bin for it as the old one is now full.
They are relatively cheap.
It looks like this:
If you don't want to spend any money you can remove it and try to empty the powder into a bin but it can make a big mess.
