Hi

Please look at the printer properties under Paper, you will see that the type of paper used can be chosen.

1. This apparently makes the printer behave differently when the default is not chosen.

For example, when I choose Thick Paper, the printer feeds the paper inside the printer much slower than when default is chosen. This, most likely, is done to prevent the paper from jamming up somewhere inside from feeding too quickly.

Therefore, if one is finding that their printer is constantly having a paper jam, changing the paper type may have positive results.

2. Heat maybe another source of paper jams. Although there is no paper jammed in the laser printer, the laser printer may stop printing due from overheating. Therefore, if heat is the culprit, changing the paper type may not work.

Hope this helps !

Exit sensor. Go to Youtube and watch this video: 5fJHykzkfww

Then go to ebay and get one for $8 to $12. The video shows you how to fix the printer in about 15 minutes.

I have a CLP-300 (don't know how similar it is but...) The paper jams alot also - I have found that cleaning the area around the imaging unit seems to help.

but usually the best fix is to replace the Waste Toner Bottle. that seems to let it work for awhile. If it starts acting up again, I'll empty the bottle, vacuum the imaging unit area and seems to help. I think 3 times is the most I have been able to do this before needing to use a new toner bottle.

Hopefully this helps...

I have a Samsung CLP-310 and I've mislaid the units manual. On the top of the unit down on the bottom right hand corner there are four (4) colour icons a yellow, red, blue and a grey, all which light up...


Here is the link to the manual, it says that the flashing light is PROBABLY caused by lack of toner and the first step is to replace/replenish the corresponding flashing light to the toner. It explains that when the light turns stys on all the time the toner will be empty.
With regards to the paper jamming, there is 3 pages on things to do or try.

I hope this gives you a few ideas

CLP-310. paper jammed and it can't be removed. Can the roller be removed to get the paper out? that's the only way the jammed paper is going to come out.


I would recommend that you take it to a authorized printer repair shop and have them remove the paper. Printers have sensors that if not properly installed upon servicing the machine it will give error codes and stop the unit from printing.
When I have paper jams on my printers I always pull the paper from the discharge side to prvent any sensors being bent or broken. Good Luck!!!

My Samsung CLP 310 is having paper jam issue; it prints half and then gets jammed halfway; opening and closing the front panel sends the paper out but upper half of the paper prints ok but lower half shows...


You'll probably have to replace that exit sensor. Cleaning might not do it. Go to YouTube and watch this video: 5fJHykzkfww

You can get the part on eBay for about $10 and it's a fairly simple 15 minute fix.

My samsung printer clp 315 has a paper jam with about 1/3 of the paper out the exit everytime

DIY video tutorial on how to repair the Samsung CLP-315, CLP-301 laser printer "paper jam" problem, where the paper stops printing about halfway through for no apparent reason. My printer worked great otherwise, but was out of warranty. It would have been less expensive to get a new printer.

The problem is a very cheap sensor.

This repair takes 15 minutes and is inexpensive. Read the comments below.

I got the part from SamsungParts.com. Search for part #0604-001393

thanks :)
