Question about Samsung Printers & Copiers

Samsung CLP 510 - won't print on photo paper.

We have a CLP 510 and we can't get it to print on coloured paper. . the ink smears and collects on a drum or something and goes onto the next paper. we are totally unable to get anything like a glossy photograph. or even slightly glossy paper. It prints good colour on flat paper. Recently we tried a premium paper for colour copying and printing and it just didn't take. Paper was made by storaenso and sold from Office works. My friends hp copier of similar size had no problem and did a lovely job on the exact same paper. Can you help

Use the cartridge cleaning program in the program that came with the printer.

this should clean them and probably stop the ink bleeding




do not rate until satisfied.

When you do a print you have to select the option to print on glossy paper. This is because when a printer prints on glossy paper it has to print slower and the heater is heated to a temparature that is higher than regular paper so the ink will dry. You can do this in your print settings. On a document when you print you will get print options you can change the setting there.

    You can access them through start+control+printers
    from there just right click the printer and go to the menu from here you can save the settings so you do not have to keep changing every time you print

    Also make sure to run a (clean and alignment ) under your menu Maintanances

    GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE POST FOR MORE HELP

    This should help you

    If not your printer cartridge head is dirty (just from ink) but do that last because you can do that through the settings.

    I am not sure if this pinter use a cartridge

    > if you have no success with any of this then pull it and carefully
    wipe /pat the bottom of the CARTRIDGE Printer Head. Be careful not to
    touch the other parts of the cartridge

This is not a driver or Windows issue, has the ink cartridges been changed recently, it sounds like the the paper is not being magnetically charged before the ink, unplug the power cord for 30 sec plug back in and try printing again

Smearing of printed image in color printing mode


many times this problem is caused by the type of paper being used, especially with photos, try a different paper, or change the type of paper in the print box when you try to print. the amount of toner used is determined by the paper type. if you are printing on glossy paper you might get the smearing if you didn't tell the printer to print on "glossy" Anyway, this is most likely where to problem can be solved. good luck

How to refill the cartridge for Samsung clp 510 laser printer


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridges that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Samsung CLP-300 dark prints and smears


For starters remember this is not meant to be a PHOTO Printer, I am guessing the Spearing is because Glossy paper does not hold the toner like Regular paper or at least until it is fused. I am a technitiian and i also own this printer.

Ink issues Samsung CLP-510


Some paper tints can cause problems with color images, so make sure that you're using plain white paper, not another color such as beige, yellow, or blue. Even an off-white shade can affect your colors.

In addition, paper type can slightly influence your ink color. Highly absorbent papers can draw in the ink so quickly that the printed image may seem dull or a little washed out. If this is the case, try a coated paper that is specifically intended for color printing. If you're printing those important family vacation photos, use a good-quality glossy paper.

If your colors are way off, you may be running out of one or more ink colors. For example, blue and yellow are mixed to make green, so if your grass seems blue rather than green, you may be running out of yellow. Check your ink cartridges and replace any that are low or exhausted.

Thank you, & post back if you still need assistance.

Samsung CLP-510 not printing?


Most probably you are using an USB cable that is either too thin (cheap cable) or too long (beyond 6ft.).
