Samsung CLP-300 dark prints and smears

Hi i have the samsung CPL-300 and every time i try to print of a photo image the printer 1) prints the image darker than the original 2) smears the toner across the page and onto one of the rollers in the machine, the smearing only happens if i use glossy photo paper or transparancy sheets. the paper i am using is HP glossy laser photo paper 220, but if i print the test page from the printer settings utility that seems to be ok. its allmost as though the printer is putting far to much toner on the paper can you help, thanks for your time in advance

For starters remember this is not meant to be a PHOTO Printer, I am guessing the Spearing is because Glossy paper does not hold the toner like Regular paper or at least until it is fused. I am a technitiian and i also own this printer.

Smearing of printed image in color printing mode


many times this problem is caused by the type of paper being used, especially with photos, try a different paper, or change the type of paper in the print box when you try to print. the amount of toner used is determined by the paper type. if you are printing on glossy paper you might get the smearing if you didn't tell the printer to print on "glossy" Anyway, this is most likely where to problem can be solved. good luck

Hi. My Samsung CLP 300 Laser is playing up. It


The problem you are experiencing is a common problem with this printer. What happens is over time as the printer is used, toner or developer builds up a film on the developer blades. The developer blades meter the amount of toner that the printer puts on the paper to make the image. As the film builds up, less and less toner makes it to the page causing the image to become faint. The black developer blade probally is clogged.
This can be fixed two ways. The easiest and most expensive is to buy a new imaging unit for about $100+. The second is to disassemble your imaging unit and clean the developer blade(s). This can be done in about 30 minutes. I have posted instructions in my Tips section.
