Question about Samsung SCX-4100 All-In-One Laser Printer

Printer prints lightly after changing a cartridge

I have a Samsung SCX-4100 printer. I just changed the laser cartridge because I thought it was low. The print is so light that I can hardly read it. If I shake the cartridge I can print fine for about 5 pages. Both the old and new cartridges are doing the same thing. I would like to know if I have a problem with the printer or with a bad cartridge? Thanks

    Basically same problem and tried cleaning and shaking cartridge and replacing with new cartridge. Mine actually prints with a contour of light on the sides and dark and clear in the middle. It's almost like a taper.

    grinding noise started after I changed the cartridge. I did nothing else. The printer worked fine up until then.

Hi

Had the same problem so thought I was running low so brought new cartridge "at top dollar price"

Still had the same problem, tried cleaning printer as manual suggested but still poor printing.

Will now try a refill of original cartridge if that fails, will dump printer or try selling on eBay!!

How many pages per minute doe it print?


Black Print Speed:--------- 15 ppm***** Total Media Capacity:---- 250 Sheets****** Max Resolution (BW):---- 600 x 600 dpi*********

Being laser-based, the SCX-4100 is a more economical choice over bubble jet printer whose cartridges are expensive in comparison to their durability. But be mindful that the SCX-4100 is a black-and-white device – so no color printing/copying for you, although it obviously scans color documents. The toner cartridge is good for about 3,000 copies, a figure that can increase 40% with toner management software (included).
The device has a main paper tray that holds 250 sheets up to legal size. You can manually feed a sheet at time into a slot right above the front paper tray, and there’s also a rear slot for jam-prone material, like envelopes and transparencies. Unfortunately, the SCX-4100 lacks an automatic document feeder.
Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Samsung scx 4100 cleaning the roller


one way to clean those rollers is to take the printer apart. this would provide you with enough room to fix it and clean it.

however, if the suggestion of taking it apart does not sound good, you can still actually have that cleaned while it is turned on. as what you mentioned, you are asking how would it turn while cleaning it. i suggest that you try using the qtip and tune the printer to turned on. so that you can actually see what your doing with the roller.
