Question about Printers & Copiers
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.

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.
