Samsung CLP-300 'dev. home error'
Dev. Home error
can be fixed by stretching out a solenoid spring on the power cord
side of the printer. The solenoid acts as a clutch to stop the spinning
at the right spot.
The problem is that the spring gets weak
over time / the cogs round out
over time and the solenoid finger is overcome by the spinning cogs, and
resulting in selecting the wrong developer.
Open up the right side (power cord side) of the printer (take off
cover, then take off side cover). Then, find a solenoid (little metal
square) that touches the white plastic vertical spur gear. Take the
spring off the solenoid. Now, put the spring back on - only this time
you will attach one anchor point to the middle of the spring as to
pre-stretch the spring for more tension.

Paper feeding halfway through then stops
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps.
Samsung CLP-300 paper feed
Clean the feed roller.
Remove the paper tray, from the bottom there is a grey rubber semi wheel in the middle front of where the paper tray would be. Use a cloth with WD-40, brake cleaner, or lighter fluid to lightly wipe the rubber clean. Put the paper tray back in and it should print.
Samsung CLP-300 Paper Feed Problem
I had same problem and it got resolved by lifting the front portion of the paper tray up. I put a spare USB drive under the paper tray for sufficient push upwards. It seems to be working fine now for me.
Clean the toner roller bladesYou Tube Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ipw1RjwzUDgShows you the problem & how to fix it. There's a metal blade on the edge of each toner roller which can get clogged with small bits of toner & prevent even distribution. Clean the blade with a lolly stick & put it back together.I tried this with CLP 320 cartridge - same principle but can be messy because the cartridge is full of toner powder.
I emptied the waste toner
Sometimes just emptying the waste toner tank will not clear this fault. The printer uses a light sensor to determine when the tank is full. You will need a cotton swab and clean the part of the tank that the sensor is viewing the tank. Try to clean the clear window of the inside of the tank. It can be difficult since the placement of the window with respect to the tank opening. Other way is to try to wash out the inside of the tank with soap and water which can be messy but it will do a better job. Hope this helps.
Spl-c error-including corrupted data
BEWARE SPAM NUMBER +1-800-532-4187 BELOW
I should have updated this a while ago, as I see others have had the same problem since my post on 27 August.
After calling Samsung technician out to take a look, he suggested getting a higher quality cable (conected to the computer). Despite the fact that the cable which we'd been using for months always seemed to work ok, we got another one of higher quality, and the printer now works fine.
I don't know why the cable stopped working efficiently, but it did.
I hope this helps...
I have a Samsung that say Transfer Belt Error
I have a utility to reset the consumables errors on this printer, but only if the component is past its lifecount. (60k for transfer belt)
Its called CLP-300_Reset_RLCv04.exe or just RLCV-04.exe (if you can find a copy)
If you need a copy, let me know and I'll find some way to get it to you.
I've used it for transfer belt reset and it works.
go to samsung website,under support and downloads,type clp300,will get drivers
Samsung CLP-300 printer, very poor black coverage
Samsung printers are far from the best. I have the same printer and it needs a Fuser. The fuser part costs more than I paid for the printer and it's a little over a year old. Samsung will not sell me the part but will repair the printer for $135 plus the part which costs over $135. Shipping is $20. I only paid $141 for the printer. I'll stick with Epson and to hell with Samsung.
