I called Samsung because my printer did the same thing. Try a hard reset, if that doesn't work you have to replace the transfer belt. hit Menu then # then 193 Black Start....you have to do this all in about 3 seconds. It will come up and say Select Country (USA) hit OK and then it is suppose to reset it. If it doesn't work the transfer belt has to be replaced. If you are under warranty they will send you this for FREE.....

I am out of warranty and have to pay $150 to get one.

Good Luck

You need to install a new JC96-03611C.
Expensive and quite hard to do by your self.

Just bought a refurbished unit and had the same problem"paper jam" "transfer belt error" what I did was take out the imaging unit the big one and the smaller one in the back and just gave them a minor dust cleaning of the toner ink that accumalates on the Imaging unit (there was no paper found to have been jammed) I also took out the toners and put them back in ,just in case they were not in properly.I put everything back turned on the printer and it's running great.

Hello.

Loud noises coming from a Washing Machines are most often caused by loose objects inside the unit or by a broken dryer belt. The Washing Machines belt allows the dryer's motor to run smoothly. Continuous wear and dry conditions may cause the belt to dry out, eventually Washing Machines cracking and then snapping. This will cause a loud noise within the unit. Repair and fix the dryer belt of a Washing Machines to get rid of loud noises.

Instructions And Things You'll Needed to solve the problem.

Screwdriver ,Replacement Washing Machines belt

1 Stop the Washing Machines and look inside the dryer's drum for any loose objects such as coins, pens or anything else that may have been in a pocket of clothing. Remove the object and restart the dyer to determine if the noise has stopped.
2 Unplug the Washing Machines from the wall outlet to disconnect all power to the unit.

3 Remove the lint trap from the lint compartment on the top of the dryer.

4 Remove the screws that hold the top panel in place. Pull the panel off to access the
dryer belt.
5 Tilt the dryer forward and lift the dryer drum to remove the belt. Check the Washing Machines belt. A belt that is worn, cracked, split or broken will cause loud noises.

6 Slide the old belt off of the drum and pull it out to remove it. Take note on how it is positioned over the drum.
7 Install the new belt. Lean the front panel away from the Washing Machines and slip the new belt over the drum. Locate the position of the old belt and slip the new belt following the old belt's position ensuring the grooved side of the belt faces down. Push the idler pulley towards the motor to allow you to slip and loop the belt around the motor pulley.
8 Place the top panel on the Washing Machines and screw it in place.
9 Open the Washing Machines door and use your hand to rotate the drum counterclockwise a few turns to ensure the belt is secured.
10 Plug the Washing Machines into the wall unit and begin use .

My new balance 1500 treadmill works great but the last couple days its starting to make a clickinng noise around the belt. It sounds like its tranfering from the motor area. The belt has never been...


It sounds like you have a bearing failing, either in the front roller or the motor. If it is the front roller it will be a dull "Clicking" noise, if its the drive motor it will be a growl noise. The growl will be so loud at top speed you wont be able to even talk over the noise. Remove the motor hood and this will help you determine the culprit.

VERY LOUD NOISE WHEN PRINTING WITH MY SAMSUNG CLP-300


You all say that the toner cartridge is okay, so it could be the hole OPC Image Drum or the ITB which is the tranfer Belt.
The Tranfer Belt is behind the Image Unit.

Kenmore gas dryer 97273100 was drying, but making a loud noise


You need a belt. Here's a link to a site with a good set of instructions if you want to try repairing it yourself. (You should DIY. You can save a bunch on the service call and the belt is only about $20.)
