Question about Samsung CLP-500 Laser Printer

1 Answer

CLP-500 is printing only on left side of paper

CLP-500 is printing only about four centimeters on the left side on the paper. First I noticed it printed about eight cm, half hour later only those four cm.
I have booted my Windows XP, tried different programs, test print and even that DEMO-print directly from the printer, which should not depend on those windows-drivers. Same proble all the time.
Yes, it's old and I have used thos fill-in-toners, never changed anything although it has been saying for two years "Replace belt, imaging unit... all the things"
Have it died now?

You'll need to look at

Drum Unit - these can go beyond their rated life

Transfer Belt - these can fail suddenly and dramatically, often quite soon after their rated life is reached.

Also check Transfer Roller (open the duplexer door to see this - grey (black when new) foam roller about 25mm diameter purple plastic tabs on ends (1 may be black). This is critical to good quality prints, as it maintains the contact between paper and Transfer Belt AND electrostatically pulls the toner off the Transfer Belt onto the paper.

Samsung CLP-500 output problems


i have found that removing the toners, and shaking them side to side, while keeping them horizontal, which seems to spread the toner for even distribution. This can sometimes fix the problems with fading prints. hope it helps.
Margins i think might be a problem with the wysiwyg of the program, some don't do it well, but also excel in particular has a shrink to fit page option, you may find the percentage not at 100%. you can also copy an excel table to word and print from that if it is driving you nuts.
