Question about Samsung CLP 315 Laser Printer

1 Answer

I have a Samsung CLP-310N. I have a print quality problem, which is described in the user manual as character void. In the middle of characters, there is no toner or it is blotchy. Images are also blotchy. There are no stripes, and I was told by Samsung that this problem is not caused by the imaging unit. I have tried a couple different types of paper, and some are better than others, but they all have this problem to some extent. The problem happens on black and all colours. Any ideas?

    The paper isn't damp, other than normal humidity in the air.

    What do you mean by the print heads? Do you mean the edge of the toner cartridge - the roller where the toner comes out?

    where the toner sits in this case... but u will need a damp cloth to do this... and be gentle

    I gave it a wipe inside, and picked up post of the loose toner. The problem is still the same. I am really not sure what else to try. Thanks for your tips.

If your printer prints like this:
slamfix_13.jpg The problem is with the developer in the imaging unit. The problem can be fixed by either replacing the imaging unit for $100+ or you can fix it yourself by cleaning the imaging unit. You will need simple hand tools and if you are careful restore the print quality of your printer. I have a link to instructions that should help you Hope this helps you.

Printing faintly on left side of page

Is it possible to print a test page? Delete the print driver and reboot. Reinstrall print driver. Look in the manual to print a character set page usually you hold a button and turn on the the power. If that doesn't work put the file on a disk and go to your local copy center.

Have just connected Samsung CLP-310n (ethernet to router) and installed the software. However, when I want to print using the CLP-310n driver, it always prints to file rather than the printer. Any...

First make sure the printer is the default printer. If you have office or some other program you can get the print to file setup as the default printer. Just open printer right click and change if required to make it the default. If you don't have a printer hooked up the default is either fax or print to file. So you need to make sure the network printer clp300 is set as the default.

Next go into printer properties and check to see if the driver itself is set to print to file.

Also check your program to make sure it isn't set to print to file. That may be under setup, options, or page setup depending on the program. Usually if you set it to use the default system printer you are ok.

I'd assume its just the first thing ie default printer not set. Sometimes network printers aren't recognized as they should so you have to tell it whos boss ;-]
