Question about Samsung Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a CLP-315 W printer. My printer has quit working because of what is described as a toner waste bin problem. I took the bin out and cleaned it. That didn't solve anything. Do I have to get a new bin? I bought the printer at Fry's and they don't know how to help me because they don't know what a waste bin is. When I had this same problem six months ago, Fry's said they would send my printer to you for repair, but it would be 6-8 weeks before I got it back. I couldn't be without it that long so I bought a similar printer which now looks like a stupid thing for me to do. Thanks for getting back to me. Ross Porter Calabasas, California

Just emptying the waste toner on this model is not enough. You must make sure to thoroughly clean the bin, as there is a sensor in the machine that detects when it is full. By making sure that there is no more toner residue in the bin to block the laser sensor, you should be able to print without replacing it. Let me know if you still have any issues.

    I forgot to add that you can also order these online for about $20 including shipping. This may be an easier option for you. Simply google "clp-315 waste toner" and look for the lowest price.

Green and amber light on together

You're almost out of toner (depending on where the light flashes, that toner needs to be replaced soon). It also can be the waste bin, that is full, in that case you have to replace the waste bin by an empty one.

What does the Smart Panel say? It normally tells you what the problem is. Is the waste toner container full? If so, the printer does not work untill you empty it and put it back. You do not need to buy a new waste toner container. This is my third CLP-310/315 so I know what I´m talking about. How can I make these letters s smaller?

CLP-315 - CLP-315 Laser Printer: I have changed all the color toner but not prining...


any error indicated?

run your Smart Panel and check what is the fault that is being detected.

If all the color toner had been replace. what about the OPC & waste toner tank?

note. Please replace the waste toner tank once it is full do not reuse the same waste toner tank. as it will course the internal of the printer to be spread with waste toner and your print out will be dirty and patches.

My samsung clp-315w prints smudgy black lines

Cleaning my unit resulted in the solution of this problem. I removed the toner cartridges, the imaging unit, and the waste bin, opened the back door as well, and blew it out with "canned air". This will not solve all problems, but it is the right place to start. be careful to keep the imaging unit out of bright light when you you have it out of the printer.

Samsung CLP-315 eats toner. Cartridges last almost

ean_inkrefills on ebay. Search on the terms "samsung clp 315 toner refill solution". Chip installs on the printer motherboard--installation is not overly difficult, but still not for the faint-hearted. I expect it voids the printer warranty. Ean gives good email support.
