Question about Samsung ML 2010 Laser Printer
Both led's blink when switch on
My old (new in 2006; now 2022) Samsung ML-2010 did not come back on after a power outage. The LEDs were flashing alternately: "On Line / Error" flashed red and "Toner Save" flashed green. There was a motor running continuously inside.
The cause was a bad power supply capacitor (1500 uF, 10 V, 10mm dia, 20 mm tall) that was obviously "puffy".
This is the easiest printer to work on that I have ever seen.
I took out the paper and closed the front flap so I could lay the unit on it's front.
There is a cover on the back with a screw at each side (near AC inlet and near USB port). Just take out those 2 screws and pop the cover off. The bad capacitor was near the top, middle of the power supply board. Disconnect the 2 cables, remove 5 screws (2 sizes--keep track), open the top cover (to release the microswitch interlock) and push the paper tray sense lever (at the bottom--it flags an optical sensor on the board) then lift the board out.
I unsoldered the old capacitor and soldered in a new one, put it all back together and it works great again!

Hi.Are you having any kind of problem with the printer? I only ask because this is normal for the Samsung ML 2010, I have two and they both do this when I switch them on and I have no problems with either. If you are having a problem post back and I will try my best to help you out. Hope this helps. Si :)
