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

Re: samsung CLP-300 dark prints and smears
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.

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
Printing a photo but not getting it upto your expectation.....?? No worries just fiddle a little bit with the printing options and keep in mind some important points that I am going to tell you....it will help:
1) RESOLUTION OF THE IMAGE TO BE PRINTED... Always keep in mind while printing a digital printout that the resolution should be best fitted i.e. of the original photo.... if you stretch A photo too much or squeeze you might not get the desired result. It depends upon the DPI i.e dots per inch that appear on the paper in the snap that you print. To get a quality print you must make sure to select proper dpi for an image in printing. Eg. for printing a snap of 300 dpi you must choose the image resolution as 600 dpi, but in case of professionally required image quality you can select upto 24oo dpi.
2) PRINTING PAPER ... Make sure that the paper you are using is suitable for the ink and the printer that you are using. Certain printers specially design Photo Paper suitable for the ink used in them for eg. HP printers do have Hp photo papers to give a good quality of image.
3) SETTINGS IN THE PRINTER... You can adjust the image quality that you want by clicking on the Properties Option in the printer dialog box that opens when you give a print command. for eg. you can select Economy mode for saving the ink (but this will not give a good quality image as colors to will be low), or you can use the Bes option, as suitable for you...
So next time you Print a photo or snap of yourself make sure to remember these points and have fun.....

I work in the comercial printing game, what your describing sounds like the surface finish used on these labels is only suited to black toner. Black requires the least amount of heat to set, where as colours require more radient heat the lighter the colour gets from black. Try printing a black/monotone lable and see if you still get this blistering problem.
