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.

If there are no obstructions along the paper path, try this:
"...You can take the pick up rubber and its housing off without removing the shaft.
After taking off the front panel and taking out the upper paper tray and
the toner you have lots of room to get your hands in there (make sure
it's unplugged before you start). Two plastic side supports hold the
rubber housing in. Lift the tab on one and slide it to the side. the
housing will now come out . Take note of the positioning of all these
parts before taking them apart. I sometimes use a digital camera for
this purpose. the housing snaps apart and the rubber band slides off. I
turned it inside out and put everything back together. works great now
(for another year I hope).
It's not difficult, it took me about 30 minutes, but be gentle with
these plastic parts. I needed a small flat head screw driver and a good
lamp. The easiest way is to stand the printer up on its back and reach
down inside the hole with the lamp set up over top..."
Just had this problem myself and fixed it as follows: Take out the photo conductor unit(PCU). Clean the inside of the printer, just dust up excess ink laying around, gently with a dry paper towel.
OK, on the PCU there is a wide black rubber band sort of thing... it's as wide as the drum(blue film) on the PCU. If you were to rotate the drum so the rubber band revolved one full time, eventually you would see a small silver square on the rubber band. Gently clean that off.
As you are facing the front of the printer, the PCU inserts with the silver square on the rubber band, on your left. If you look down into the printer, there is a corresponding sensor for that sliver square. The sensor is also silver...it's about 1/2 inch by 1 inch. Clean this. Doing so solved my problem.
Mine was coverd in black ink.. once I wiped it clean and put the PCU back in, it worked fine.
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!
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!
I have just removed the panel where the power and USB cable lock into. It's a case of 1 screww from the rear and 2 catchs underneath the printer. From there you should be able to see the mechanism for the roller, a set of small white cogs. below that you should be able to see a very small spring which is acting as the pressure. Mine was still attached but as you say was pulling no pressure on the roller what so ever.
Find yourself a large-ish rubber band and slip the band over the whole mechansim. Best way is through the paper feed slot, slip it over the roller and then move it through to the area where you removed the panel. Position the rubber band as far down the cogs as possible, don't worry the cog casing prevents the band interfearing with the cogs. Now pull the band reasonably tight and with the other hand test the pressure of the roller. Adjust till you feel OK with it. Now put the panel back in with the end of the rubber band trapped and poking out from the panel behind the printer, holding it in place. Redo the screw and give it a try.
My first attempt found it a bit too restrictive and feeded to sheets at a time but adjusted it once and its back to normal. I know its a bodge but its a cheap one and it uses a rubber band, just how I fixed my Punto's windscreen wiper, £120 part or a rubber band once a month... Mmmm...
I just finished fixing my ml-2510 with the identical problem. you can take the pick up rubber and its housing off without removing the shaft. after taking off the front panel and taking out the upper paper tray and the toner you have lots of room to get your hands in there (make sure it's unplugged before you start). two plastic side supports hold the rubber housing in. lift the tab on one and slide it to the side. the housing will now come out . take note of the positioning of all these parts before taking them apart. I sometimes use a digital camera for this purpose. the housing snaps apart and the rubber band slides off. I turned it inside out and put everything back together. works great now (for another year I hope). It's not difficult, it took me about 30 minutes, but be gentle with these plastic parts. I needed a small flat head screw driver and a good lamp. the easiest way is to stand the printer up on its back and reach down inside the hole with the lamp set up over top. good luck.hope this helps.
I FIXED MINE YES... open your thing.. and look,... do you notice.. theirs like a small black.. corner shaped thing, that stopped the carriage..
pop that thing like add force to push it back... boo ya. :) and their you go... this problem annoyed me for a month. and i went through numerous hp printers too. but, just...... really open your eyes and try to find out whatsup..
I have just SOLVED my CLP 300 printer paper jams by replacing the rubber band on the paper pick up roller. My old rubbber had worn flat and had dried out. I was lucky as Samsung had sent me one for an engineer to fit. However, being an engineer myself, I replaced it with instant success!
You could fix yours without replacing the band because all it needs is to be turned around to a non worn area. To get to it safely, unplug your printer from the mains supply and the USB cable. Remove the paper tray.
Open the front door and remove the imaging unit complete with toners. Now turn your Printer upside down and look for the rotating bar with a centre wheel and rubber band. The rubber band looks like it only goes half way around the wheel. This band is Clipped onto the wheel. With careful prising, you can unclip the rubber band. It's a bit tricky and tight but I have done it no probs. Perhaps being a techy myself has helped? Anyway, rotate the band around so that a fresh bit of rubber will be acting on the paper and refit. This is also tight and tricky, but can be done without dismantling the printer to replace the who bar.
The actual part that is unserviceable is the rubber on the Samsung MEA unit pick up roller. The part number is JC97-02647A
Now refit all the other stuff and test your printer. I have also got rid of the dreaded clicking too! But that's another story.
