Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

3 Answers

Vista turns color to b/w...

....especially with the new software that Samsung recommended. During the day all inserts of color mode has resulted in that it turns back to b/w - later in the afternoon it just printed text and numbers....

Samsung has no idea what this is. It´s said that CLP-300 is "dedicated for Vista" (I wonder). The only recommendation I got was to turn to Microsoft "it´s their fault - not ours". Meanwhile my Canon ink-jet 4000 works perfect - from the same Windows Vista Ultimate.... gaaah. What to do????

    Printer attached to Windows XP machine. Printing from Vista machine across the network is greyscale. Driver options on Vista are constantly reset to Greyscale even after running the menu in supervisor mode and selecting colour. Close it, reopen it and bingo! Greyscale box is ticked. Printer works fine if directly attached to the Vista machine.

    When I try to print in color, (using Vista) the page prints out in black and white, even when I click on it to print color. I know that the printer has the capability of printing in color, as when I first purchased it it printed a test page in color.

Had the same problem and fixed it (Printing from Vista to an XP machine with CPL-300 attached)

Opened printers control panel and deleted CPL-300

Deleted Samsung folder in C:\Program Files\

Installed downloaded CPL-300 driver as a LOCAL device (and said NO to install as if printer was off)

Back in printer control panel right-clicked and added printer. Picked Local Printer and changed port to networked UNC printer name. ie \\XPpc\SamsungC

Printer showed up in Control panel and color is now default and any changes are SAVED!

Hope that works for everyone else!

This solution works temporarily. However you have to select the modfied profile every time you print.

Also this solution does not work when microsoft office 2007 for printing.

I'm not quite satisfied with color and black tone. What settings would you recommend.

You do not say what exact model of printer you are using so any answer will be generic rather than specific.

Poor colour and black tone can be as a result of various factors:
1. Poor paper quality that you are printing on.
2. Poor ink or toner quality being used.
3. Use of Ink / Toner saving modes or software.
4. Worn or damaged printer components such as the fuser roll on a laser printer and other similar consumables with a limited page use life.
5. Poor quality content being printed, i.e. low quality images being printed at too high a print resolution.

I have HD samsung hm251hi and i change sata mode i bios to ATA to install windows XP in notebook dell inspiron n5010 so, i can't install windows XP so what can i do?

Windows XP comes without drivers for SATA controllers in AHCI mode (some BIOS call it "enhanced" or "native" mode). Please double check if you really set your BIOS to ATA emulation mode (sometimes called "legacy" mode), this actually should do the trick.

However, AHCI mode has some advantages resulting in small but noticeable better performance boost. Windows 7 and Vista support it out-of-the-Box, actually I'd consider installing Win 7 instead of XP, unless you really need XP due to company policies or (very) old software that runs on XP only.

For Windows XP there is a rather unconvenient method availabe:
  1. You will need a 3.5" floppy disk drive connected to your laptop, if you do not have one, you may be able to borrow it from somebody you know, or ask a local shop for help. You'll need the drive for XP installation only, so buying one just for this purpose may be too much. --- Note, the procedure is not supported by XP for other media, like CD.
  2. Put the driver software for your SATA controller on a floppy disk - the N5010 uses an Intel chip set, so check here for drivers suitable for "F6 during Windows Setup" method. The floppy needs to hold the files IAAHCI.INF, IAAHCI.CAT, IASTOR.INF, IASTOR.CAT, IASTOR.SYS, and TXTSETUP.OEM.
  3. While installing Windows XP, a message "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver" briefly appears, press the F6 key now.
  4. Insert the floppy disk into the drive, and follow the on-screen instructions to pre-load the driver.
The remainder of the installation should proceed as normal.

2. enable autoplay for your cd / dvd rom drive
3. select appropriate language
4. select ''install pc suite''
5. once finished, select the finish tab

for vista operating system,
>>do the same as the above steps, if ask to run as administrator select yes.
>>after installation, uncheck run pc studio automatically after finish.

>>after installation, remove the cd, run NPS, and connect your phone.
>>if your phone can not be seen by NPS, do these,
on your NPS, click menu, select settings, select connection, check usb cable com1 or com 2 port select ok, and let your pc studio recognize your phone.

for windows seven, though the NPS doesn't support it right now. you can do the following tricks,

2. browse your NPS cd, look for the setup for NPS..
3. once located, right click the setup.exe, select properties,
4. select compatibility,
5. check run in compatibility mode on win xp, win vista.

the trick also, if you can't install your samsung studio, you may do these...

on your phone, press menu,then select settings, select phone settings, scroll down and it will give you pc connections, select ask on connections, save and exit.
now, connect your phone to your computer, it will ask you what connection do you prefer, on your phone, press memory card, it will install your memory card as mass storage device, open it your my computer, you will see your memory card there, you can now, drag and drop files from your computer to your memory card.

I have a problem with my TOSHIBA DP8070 coper. i get error message: IQC service call recommended " the print quality is very poor

this happens during automatic color calibration, more than likely you need new color developer installed by a technician. turn machine on holding the 0&8 buttons to enter service mode type 4546 and 0 then start and 556 and 0 (start) 557 and 0 (start), then hold interrupt it will beep 5 times and shut down, this will turn off the calibration and allow you to make copies but will not improve quality.
