Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer
I have 2 CLP-300, each connected to an Apple Express Airport base station, so I can print wirelessly. Both printers worked for a while (2 month) and then stopped printing. The red light flashes constantly. Often a printing job gets stuck on printing at 90% and it does not complete the job. I was able to make it work again by removing the printer from the printer list and ask the computer to browse for it again. It stopped again and that trick no longer works. The printers also don't print with a direct USB cable to the computers. Do you know what is happening? Both printers are having the exact same problem with Mac or Windows machines.
This post regarding the CLP-300/AirPort problem appeared on the Mac forums in June:
"This is not a known issue. The reason for you to face this particular issue is that these are both 2 GDI printers. Both these printers are designed to be DIRECTLY connected to a PC or MAC. They are not designed to be connected to any type of Printer Server, Airport Extreme Base Station or Powered/Unpowered USB Hub.
If the printers are to be used over a N/W environment then you may need either CLP-300N or any other N/W capable printing device. The other option would have been to use any device that is PCL or Post Script capable. These are not host based would have been better to suited this type of environment. Even though the previously mentioned methods of connections are still not recommended they would have been better suit as they are not host reliant drivers.
As to getting a refund it would highly unlikely as it is not a fault with the printer or drivers only as mentioned they are both designed with the intention of being DIRECTLY connected."
I hope this answers your questions. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
