    I have the same problem. I have printed about 10 sheets of thext and the printer is already broken....it is a piece of ****!

  • Anonymous Dec 16, 2008

    I think this printer is a piece of ****. I only printed 2 pages and literally had it for 20 mins before it packed up. Waste of £130 - do not buy.



    I get this dev. home error, whatever the **** it means. The red light comes on and stays red.

    We have the same problem. We bought 2 of these printers and both of them have now shown the same problem - Red Light and Dev. Home Error.



    I concur with the other contributors. AVOID THIS PRINTER LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!

    I've had my printer for 3 months and get the same error. Just called tech support and they are telling me there isn't a service tech in my area. Now I am waiting for them to call me back. Piece of ****!!

    I have the same "dev. home error" and the red light. The printer has worked well for over a year. Doesn't work any more. :(

I had the same problem and look it up in service manual,
there the say Home of development is not checked or checked at a abnormal time. solution Clutch of development or mainbord must be checked.
when i opened the right side cover i vind out that the development clutch moved two parts do it was suppose to move one part, when i tightened the spring on the solenoid the problem was over and the clutch stopped at the right place. its easy to do.

Solution 1 above certainly solved my problem but it took a while to understand. You will hear a continuous clicking sound which is the white drum with protrusions on it and then get a dev home error. Remove the cover. when the solenoid releases, the drum is supposed to rotate to move in increments of 1. It sometime rotates more than one so is in a continuous reset loop eventually giving the error. Tension the spring by simply pulling of one end and then making it taut. It solved my issue. Thanks roelmoz.

    Very nice tip saleamenssop, thank you! ...and roelmoz (above) goes with the image of the weak spring... so, problem solved! My CLP-300 is almost new (2 years bought but only 200 prints, as a secondary printer only for final works and important documents).

I have had the same problem. Since I never replace the waste cartridge, but empty it - the dust got the waste cartridge 'eye dirty and caused the red light problem with the DEV. HOME ERROR code. Just 'gently' blew the dust away from the 'eye and checked it for clarity, reinstalled the waste cartridge and the error is gone and the printer is functional.

The CLP-300 is a great printer with high quality output at an excellent price. However, it does have a flaw. It would seem that it's Achilles heel is the waste toner collection system. I've owned my printer for several years and have only had two problems - both waste toner related.

Samsung says to replace the waste toner bin when it is full, but many frugal owners like me have discovered that it can be emptied. Unfortunately, this often causes the waste toner sensor to get dirty and a DEV. HOME ERROR may occur. If you receive this error, removing the waste toner bin and cleaning this sensor (very gently with a q-tip or canned air) may solve the problem for you.

I'm not a fan of this machine, but after looking harder at this machine, i noticed that yes, this solenoid, is like most samsung solenoid, it is week, may have to squeeze it back together, as well as check to see if the foam pad is sticking, its just a micro second delay, but enough to cause error. small piece of tape would resolve the sticking problem, and squeezing the solenoid "u" shape to make sure that all is working.

Hi, have you try checking the toner waste cartridge? Maybe it is full. My problem is the color difference on the screen and the print out. Any help?

Posted on Jan 22, 2009

  • Roberto Wespi Aug 29, 2011

    You can open, wash, dry and reasemble (with glue like UHU) the waste cartridge, is a piece of cake!... And is all you need to do, many times as you need it. No running parts or electronic systems inside :-)

Samsung CLP-300 'dev. home error'


Dev. Home error can be fixed by stretching out a solenoid spring on the power cord side of the printer. The solenoid acts as a clutch to stop the spinning developer actuator at the right spot.

The problem is that the spring gets weak over time / the cogs round out over time and the solenoid finger is overcome by the spinning cogs, and resulting in selecting the wrong developer.

Open up the right side (power cord side) of the printer (take off top cover, then take off side cover). Then, find a solenoid (little metal square) that touches the white plastic vertical spur gear. Take the spring off the solenoid. Now, put the spring back on - only this time you will attach one anchor point to the middle of the spring as to pre-stretch the spring for more tension.

I have a clp-350n samsung colour printer. Prints B+W images fine. When a colour image is sent to the printer the printer runs and runs and runs but never prints anything. It's as if the imaging belt can't...


There is an "opto coupler" in the main drive gear unit (right ride of machine) which controls the drive to the toner/dev units. If this (or part of the drive) is faulty it will give this error.
