Ptclaffey2--I have the exact same situation! Since the 2nd month we used it, it has jammed almost every single page. the first roller pulls it thru and then it gets stuck half way in. It's infuriating because it was so expensive, but we thought we were just using it incorrectly.
Please post an update if you figure out how to fix your problem!

thanks!

Check to see if there are not obstructions in the paper path. Assuming that the paper is the right weight paper, for example 20# copy paper, try cleaning the rubble feed rollers with a damp cloth or a sponge brush. Hopefully that should make it work better.

    I had this problem about a year ago. I read somewhere on the web that all you have to do is Replace the rubber ring that picks up the paper in the machine. Mine had dried out so I took it off and turned it inside out. It's a bit tricky but I thought it's either this or throw it out and I had a full set of replacement toners in stock. It worked - I pulled out most of the other removable bits in the printer to get access. There is a white plastic piece on the metal bars with a sort of clip to keep the rubber bit on. I used a couple of screwdrivers to get it off. The band is folded over double and then sort of loops round in a U shape. Have a look. Give it a go. I did and it has given me no trouble since.

SOURCE: Samsung CLP-300 Paper Feed Problem

I had same problem and it got resolved by lifting the front portion of the paper tray up. I put a spare USB drive under the paper tray for sufficient push upwards. It seems to be working fine now for me.

Clean the feed roller.
Remove the paper tray, from the bottom there is a grey rubber semi wheel in the middle front of where the paper tray would be. Use a cloth with WD-40, brake cleaner, or lighter fluid to lightly wipe the rubber clean. Put the paper tray back in and it should print.

I have a Samsung CLP-300 color laser printer that does not feed the paper in anymore. I have checked if it was because of lack of ink, but that is not the case. The rubber drum that feeds the paper usually...


Usually the problem constist it this rubber roller. When you cleaned well, i am sure that the problem will disappear. If you can remove a rubber (you will need tools and tech skills) you can rotate it a little so it will be new(fresh) surface on this rubber.

Samsung clp 300 starts to feed paper but stops feeding (jams?) midway


This is a common problem with both this and the Xerox phaser 6110 (a rebadged Samsung)
It is due to the pickup roller "tyre" that is the rubber roller that pulls the paper from the tray.
It gets shiny and slips on the paper.
The cure is to "rough up" the roller with some sand paper or emery cloth.
The best way is to remove the imager unit and store it in a cupboard or a box IN THE DARK.
This stops toner getting everywhere.
Remove the paper tray turn the printer on its side you will see the roller underneath, using some sand paper or similar carefully rough up the rubber roller all round.
now put the machine back together and try printing it should be ok, if the problem persists try repeating the process.

Clp 300 won't feed paper


Remove the paper tray. Gently pull the sides apart at the front end of the tray, to release the spring-loaded ramp which pushes the leading edge of the paper upwards.

Underneath this ramp are two compression springs approximately 1/2" in diameter and 2" long (above, left). The problem with the paper feed appears to be that these springs very quickly get fatigued and fail to exert enough pressure to push the tray upwards. Replace the long, thin springs with a more compact pair, with better compression, like one of the pairs on the right. I am still experimenting to find the ideal size, but this has definitely helped. Our local Ace Hardware store has a fairly good selection of compression springs. Home Depot had nothing remotely suitable.

You may find that an extra pair of hands and a pair of long-nosed pliers make the job easier when you are trying to keep the springs in position as you replace the ramp in the tray.

Try changing the printer toner cartridge first if not make sure that the paper of where the paper is stuck if under the toner cartridge check that there if there is any print on it and that it is entering the fuser section. If it has stopped at the fuser section then the possibility is that the fuser drive gear is broken or some teeth missing. If the paper is stuck before the toner cartridge then there maybe the pickup tyre dirty and not feeding correctly the other thing there maybe a sensor arm stuck down.

Try the above
