Samsung CLP300 cannot get the rubber pick up roller back in
Ok I couldn't get the rubber band off so I removed the whole, JC73-00211A RUBBER-PICK_UP, but now it's as if it's too long to go back into the machine, which I know of course it is not, can some help me. Thanks, Julia
Re: Samsung CLP300 cannot get the rubber pick up roller...
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!

HELLO OK IF PAPER KEEPS GETTING STUCK ON THE PICK UP ROLLERTHAN U NEED TO CLEAN THE ROLLER TRY CLEANING THE ROLLER WITH A POLISH NAIL REMOVER.. WHAT THIS DOES IT FRESHES THE RUBBER SO CAN PICK UP THE PAPER...

Sounds like the pickup roller is worn, you could try giving it a little more grip by giving it a clean or in more severe worn parts that are out of warranty i have used a fine sandpaper to rough the surface a little, just be sure not to leave any particulates on the roller. to remove the part simply locate the big dark rubber wheel at the back of the paper feed, with the front door down and the toner cartridge out, to my recollection the rubber part should be attached via a half moon shaped plastic insert that clips in at the top and hooks in at the bottom. so get your fingers behind the roller at the top and give it a pull and it should come away and then unhook, then give it a clean or find a better area of rubber on the item and swivel it round to that point, then hook it back to the bottom hooks on the bracket and push rearwards to clip it back onto the bracket at the top. hope that solves it, if not use some rubber bands around it to add a little more grip, shame to chuck these things away,
I have had the same paper jam nightmare as many CLP-300 users and just as I was on the verge of throwing it away I appear to have solved the problem. The paper tray has adjustable plastic guides on either side. I loosened them slightly to allow an spare eighth of an inch each side and I've had no problems since. I can't believe the problem that plagued me for months was so easy to fix.
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.
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.
