The only way to do this is with 2 small flat bladed screw drivers when u push them at the same time into the edge where the clips are one either side of the roller the whole roller will come off. If you can see opposite the clips there is a sort of hinge section this hinges down and the whole roller and rubber comes free. I just turned the rubber inside out and refitted it no more paper feed errors. It is a little tricky to reach and you definitely need the screw drivers to slip in the edge as pushing on the little lever to release it wont slip it past the notch that holds it in place. Good luck.

My Samsung laser printer ML-2510 keep wont stop running (two lights are blinking same time) until I manually turn off the switch.

After removing the pickup rubber (and not removing the rubber band from it's plastic drum) I cut a thick piece of card stock paper the width of the rubber band and slid it under the rubber. I thought it would make it contact the paper with more force and it worked great.

2070 printer shows red, flashing 'paper' lcd when there is paper in the tray. I have done the usual, checking tray, removing and restoring toner cartridge etc etc. I have tried a manual feed as this...

  1. Remove left cover (where the USB connection is located);
  2. Remove big black gear with a spring on it (you may need to unscrew the PCB that partially covers it);
  3. There is a clutch that sticks to the rubber pad behind this gear. You may put a piece of scotch tape towards to a rubber pad, so the plastic from clutch mechanism would'n stick anymore.

The paper has jammed in my ML-1610 printer.

The paper jams mostly, because the rubber band that feeds the paper to the printer is broken/split. Check the rubber band. It's located within the plastic wheel that feeds the paper.

Printer paper feed wheel rubber band is broken

I had the same problem. To remove the rubber band, I had to remove a plastic housing that keeps the band in place. It's a bit difficult, but I managed to without breaking anything with two small flat point screwdrivers. I couldn't find any original replacement part, so I looked for something similar in the market. The rubber has to be really soft to pick up the paper, also a reason why it cracks a lot. If the rubber is flat, then try to use fine sandpaper on it to give it some texture. clean it well, so it won't mess up the paper. Put the rubber band on the housing and clip it on. This should end with all the paper jams and weird noises. The job is easier done, if you remove the housing of the printer (six screws). Never use brute force. If it doesn't come out, there's something that you're doing wrong. Be patient, so you won't break anything. Good luck!

When changing the print cartridge, the rubber band did not break

I do not know what you mean by clear tape or sponge strip but if by ridged you mean what i think then yeah we are pretty much taking about the rubber band that moves the carriage.

So it got off, huh... it normally happens when someone pulls way too hard the cartridges, anyways, if it got loosen from the right side you need to remove all covers and scanning unit.

to do this please remove the screws on the back side and then remove the black front covers, they are set by pressure on (and some plastic nails) so i recommend you to use a flat screw driver and gently pull. look up for little triangular marks or the plastic nails, any good pressure point. once those black covers are removed, unscrew the screws (i dont know if that's the proper expression sorry) you see and proceed to remove the plastic covers, they should come out easily. then you might not need to remove the scanning unit IF you actually can set the band on again. It goes around a little gear you can actually move towards your left to avoid stretching the band more than needed. good luck!!
if you nee dto remove the scnaning unit please unplug everything on the left side before. should be at least two flat cables and a few others.

Samsung clp-500 paper feed roller replacement - how to...

You're on the right track! If you remove the paper tray and put the printer in a position so the front of it is facing up, you can then access the roller shaft with ease. If you now look on the right hand side of the roller shaft you will see a white plastic end which is secured onto the shaft with a little clip, lift this up and slide the plastic part inwards. This should now make the shaft easy to turn so you can release the two white clips on the roller and remove the rubber band (which there is only one of, but looks like two on a first glance). Once removed, I just turned it inside out so you can get another few months or more out of it before you have to buy a brand new one for a couple of ££. Replacement is just the reverse of removal. Hope this help!

Samsung CLP300 cannot get the rubber pick up roller back in

The rubber band goes around the plastic roller and is loose about loose enough to get a finger between it and plastic however the thing then pushes back into the curved space at the back of the roller so it forms a kind of c shape around the roller. If that makes any sense!

Ok I got the rubber band out

Hi Julia

Not sure where your problem is in the sequence of things. I am in France writing this so not at home to look at my Printer. From memory, once you have removed the wheel with the rubber band (tyre) on, rotate the band so a good part will be pushing on the paper and put the wheel back on the bar in reverseof how you took it off. The tabs on the wheel lock back in place holding the wheel to the bar. It's TIGHT in there though and I seem to remember it took a little bit of persuassion. However, f it seems impossble, then stop. You don't want to break it now you have got this far.

If this doens't help, drop me a line again in a couple of days as I will be back in the UK then and can have a closer look. I will try and post some pics too. Sorry I can't be more helpfull right now.
