Here we have 2 possibilities that causes the issues i) Hardware(printer) ii) software(Printer Driver)

Search and see 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. (Mostly)

2. Other factor is HEAT. Although there is no paper jammed in the laser printer, the laser printer may malfunction due to overheating. Therefore, if heat is the culprit, changing the paper type may not work.

3. If the issue is still not resolved, try to make a copy from the printer and if copy works fine, means the hardware is fine and issue with the driver.

4. If so then, right-click on printer icon and select delete.

5. Once old drivers are deleted, run the installation disc and click on add a device, follow onscreen instructions to complete the installation. Open printers and faxes window and then do right click on printer icon and select properties, click on print test page.

Check if it prints fine, if yes try to print from other application. I hope it will work.

CLP-315 all at once started to paper jam on every sheet with the paper about 3/4 of the way out of the fuser, partially in the tray. The printing is only on about 3/4 of the page as well. I looked...

If you make a print, look in the printer driver (ctrl +P, then go to properties) Look if you have selected the correct paper size.
Laser printers are very sensitive on humidity of the paper, so if this solution doesn't work, it can be that your paper is not good anymore (maybe you store it at a dry/warm/humid place). In that case you can try to use a new pack of paper (from a sealed package).

When I print the page comes out half way then jams. if I open the back door on printer page comes out but only half is printed ok rest is messy

This is the infamous exit sensor problem. Watch this video on YouTube: 5fJHykzkfww

You can try to clean it but that probably will not work. Go to eBay and get the part for about $10. The video shows you how to make the repair in about 15 minutes.

Feed jam

1) Be sure the paper tray is inserted all the way in.

2) Be sure you're using the right size of paper (width, length and thickness; paper that is too thick may jam a laser printer if it is not configured properly)

3) Be sure you're using the correct TYPE of paper. Paper designed for ink-jets sometimes produce paper jams on laser printers.

4) If the paper was jammed before, you may have a small piece of paper jammed in the printer rollers. Open the printer and very carefully look for small pieces of paper on the rollers and all the paper paths.

5) Also, some printers are very picky about how much paper you have in your paper trays. Place enough paper on the paper trays so that it is about 3/4 full, no more, no less.

6) The paper rollers that pick up the paper may be dirty with dust. Use a q-tip and 2 drops of rubbing alcohol to wipe the rollers clean. Rotate the rollers with your fingers to be sure that all the surface of the rollers are wiped clean. Be sure to use 91 % rubbing alcohol; carefully read the label of the alcohol and use the one that DOES NOT contain anything except rubbing or isopropyl alcohol and water, no glycerin or any other additives. Wait at least 1 hr before using the printer again to be sure that the alcohol has completely evaportaed .

Please, report back if you need further assistance.

Is there any way to print paper sized 3.5" x 4.875" on the samsung clp 315?

After setting the correct sizing parameters in your printer properties, There should be a second set of loading arms sometimes you have to open the paper tray to see them but they should be there.Good Luck,Dana.

Paper tray position

No, it sounds like you are doing fine. The machines are shipped with the paper tray in a "closed" position and they have to be expanded slightly (using the buttons on the bottom of the tray) to fit A4 size paper. The tray will then poke out about about 3 inches from the front off the machine as you described...this is quite correct and normal.

Samsung CLP-315 paper tray position

There is absolutely nothing wrong with your printer. The tray is recessed during packing to reduce packing space for shipping. When you pull out your paper tray for use for the first time it expands to accommodate the paper. It can be collapsed by pushing the little blue tabs that say press here to make it flush again but you would only need to do this if you were using a non standard paper size.
