Here's something you can try. There was a model of Samsung color laser that had an issue with the cleaning blades in the toner cartridge or toner transfer roller assemblies.

There are two types. I believe yours uses a "classic" toner cartridge (rectangular with a toner transfer roller on one side and a metal plate almost touching the toner transfer roller).

The metal plate can be removed and the edges cleaned. When you remove it, inspect the edges. One edge is used to clean the excess toner from the roller as it turns. Very gently clean the edges with a soft cloth and some windex or alcohol. Reassemble and test.

The other type uses round drum shaped toner cartridges. These printers have a toner transfer assembly for each color inside the printer on the main image transfer unit. These toner transfer assemblies will also have metal plates on them which can be cleaned. They must first be removed from the toner transfer assembly, you may need a jewelers screwdriver to remove them.

Be careful, the cleaning edges of these metal plates can be very sharp.

The red light has come on - mid-way through printing, and nothing I do seems to rectify the problem. It won't print. Just got the blue and red lights on all the time

Many things can cause that, toner box full, fuser not heating, paper empty, toner empty, paper scraps inside, imaging belt used up, If the owners manual doesn't help you locate the problem you may need a shop. Samsung customer support can help too, you'll find their number on line.
