Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Black toner I have a Samsung laser printer CLP-300. When I print with colors it is very good but the black isn't good at all. I thought that I had no more black toner even though it indicated that it wasn't empty. I bought more black toner but still the same problem. Help Thank you Lise

    balck toner does not print well. leaves streaks as if the heads need cleaning. I called samsung and they said it was b/c I had touched teh imaging unit (which I had not)... But if that were the case, i'd have problems with the color as well... and I don't.

    Hi, I have the same problem, I have had the samsung engineer out 3 times in the past year. Now I have the black not printing properly. I feel that this printer is a total let down.

I had the problems with white smear type fading on one side of the page , when pritning black, but colour printing seems OK. Did everything suggested in the manual and more. Changed toner. Been working on it a week.  (I got 2000 pages out of that thing). 
Now I have the solution. Bin the Samsung and buy a Canon.

Smasung clp 300 will not print in blk


check if your toner cartridge(s) is moving the toner supply spiral,
you can see it in hole where toner leaving bottle. (you must push the
valve in cylindrical output of cartridge inside about 20mm).
When you rotate anti-clockwise gear of cartridge, the spiral inside must rotate too.
My original toner has this broken and print was light.

You can have also bad developer unit, blade, or contacts, or printer electronic board.

Different looking text, but only in certain areas of the page.

Samsung CLP-300 color laser leaves 3-4 lines of various shades of black in middle of paper. Otherwise everything is great.
