Question about Samsung CLP-500N Laser Printer

1 Answer

CLP-500N Not turning on

My clp500N will not power on. I've made sure the power cord is delivering sufficient power, changed power cords and sources, but it does not go on.

Every dozen or so times I boot up, the printer will also go on and work perfectly witih no error messages. We try to do all our printing during these times! Once it went on after switching the main power switch on and off 7 times (coincidence?).

Toner seems full, I've emptied toner overflow, I've made sure all doors/drawers are shut properly, and I've even re-loaded the printer driver.

Ideas? Can it be internal counters that are programmed to not allow it to turn on or maybe a simple as a bad on/off switch? I'd buy a new one but just spent big $ on new toner.
Thanks
Tom

Printer will not power up.


If the Printer does not power up, and you tried another outlet and power cord, the problem lies with the power supply in the printer. Unit will need to be taken in for repair.

Waste motor error


The wate motor transfers (you guess it) waste toner to the waste toner bottle. If the bottle fills up, the motor cannot transfer more waste to it. This is rare, for the printer should ask for a new waste toner bottle when the previous one fills. However,it happens frequently when users try to empty and clean the bottle instead of replacing it.

No power


If it is not getting any power at all, only one of three things: cord is fried/dead; could be the outlet, try something else in the same socket; or, the board in the printer is dead.
1. Press the POWER button to power on the printer The device has a <POWER> button.
Connect the power cord from the printer to the electrical source.
Press the <POWER> button.
Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting a print request or completing installation.

2. Disconnect and Reconnect AC power adapter or power cord to the device and electrical source
  • Disconnect the AC Power Adapter or power cord from both the device and the electrical source.
  • Then reconnect it.
  • If you are still unable to obtain power to the device, try another power outlet.
  • If possible, try connecting power directly to a wall outlet (as opposed to using a surge protector or power strip...just as a troubleshooting measure).
3. Disconnect and reconnect the electrical cord to ensure a secure connection 4. The iP6000D may require repair
For toll-free technical support, please call 1 (800) 828-4040 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 midnight. EST, Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., excluding holidays).
5. Try a different electrical source / outlet

this will surely fix your problem..

Waste toner tankFull/uninstalled


That is a problem with the toner sensor, it's in the black window behind the waste toner bottle. Sometimes blowing the toner off with a duster can will help, but usually I have to replace the entire sensor assembly JC96-03234A

My CLP-500N laser printer is reading Paper Empty Custom in MP. However, my paper tray is full and there are no paper jams.


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Error Code on Samsung CLP 500N


I don't enjoy these lovely cryptic messsages from Samsung either. Have you searched the Samsung support site? I have found some answers there that weren't in the manual.

Transbelt is a part replacement-plain and simple. Samsung sucks for this, they give you no warning and just shut down the printer. www.samsungparts.com

How to reset the CLP 500N to factory setting?


It can also depend on the software your printing from. I know AdobeReader8 now has the ability to change where the page prints.

No power


probably you already checked the following:

changed power cord
changed power source/outlet
checked for any obstructions inside the unit

check your warranty status (starts from the date of purchase)
no user-serviceable parts in there, unit is service/replacement bound

***
tip : having it repaired costs more than buying a new one
