Printing stops half-way

Hi, this is my first post =) here is the time when someone in my family is panicking because of a deadline due in this afternoon, and the CLP-300 keeps stopping the printing half way through the document, on screen on the laptop it show that it has finished loading, but the printing just keeps stopping after printing out one page, with the red light on (not flashing), and then nothing happens again until i press the stop button... what's wrong with it? o.o

    Almost the same problem but for this instant i have selected every type of paper and it still jams,it's almost like the printer isn't strong enough to grip the paper.I can get one or two printed if i puch the paper as its trying to grip it but this is ridiculous,i am not going back to prehistoric age.Feels like a am using a hand scanner to scan 1000 atlas.:(.Any suggestions?Its still under warranty so I cannot take it apart.

I had exactly the same problem - seemed to fail to pick up the sheet. I tried reversing the rubber pickup, but although I think this would work in some cases, it didn't work for me. What DID work was SO simple:

Take a piece of paper and fold it in half a few times, then tape it to the bottom of the paper tray, so that when in place, it will be under the pickup roller at the back. Now load with paper. The paper will be slightly raised at the back (below the pick up roller) and the increased pressure will magically make it work like new! Don't obstruct the paper-out detection slot - otherwise it won't know when it is out of paper.

Hi,
I have had the same problem for months and it drove me mad!
Today I found the solution!
It is true that the printer jams all the time because of its incapability to get a grip on the paper.
If you look over the paper tray inside the machine and you start printing, just before it jams you will see some sort of rotating device, trying to pick up the paper for transportation. This little piece seems to be the problem, because you will see that it is unable to lift the paper.
The problem is, that the surface of this part isn't rough enough.
It used to be, when you just bought it, but over a certain time it got too smooth.
Here is what I did;
I took out the paper tray, so that the rotating device was clear to work on.
With a little sharp knife I started to scrape and make little cuts on the surface too make it rough again. And guess what, it worked!
I have just printed thirty pages without problems, Yes!!!!!!
I guess that the problem will return when the surface of that rotating device gets too smooth again, but now you know what to do.
The worst thing is that in the end it feels even very logic.
Why didn't I think of this much sooner?
Anyway I hope this will work for you as well, any many others....

good luck!
R.

Working Fix No Parts Required!

I had the same problem. I initailly managed with it by helping 1 page at a time through. Lost my temper with it today and although it is under warranty got my screwdriver out. if you pull the paper tray out you can see a rubber pickup roller at the back, it is easier to see if you flip the printer upside down. I am not saying this is the best way of repairing but worked for me and think it will resolve this issue in most cases. Fistly make sure you make a note of where everything goes (screws etc.) as you go along.

1. Remove the top cover (two screws under the front door)
2. Remove the two sides and back door.(sides first 1 screw on one side)
3. remove all screws on the metal plate at the bottom of the back side. A black plastic guide will drop off the back but it is easy to get back on. If not pull it off for now.
4. Rest the printer on its front if youve not already, you should now be able to bend the metal plate towards the left hand side enough to access the rubber pickup roller.(maybe an easier way but this worked for me).
5. Carefully unclip and slide the roller out(not the metal bar just the white bit with a black band on). This is quite tight take a minute to see how it clips in so you know how to put it back.
6. You will probably see that the section of the rubber band that has been in use is white/grey. Rotate the band so the unused section is where the white bit was (hope that makes sense).
7. Put everything back as it was and its as good as having a new pickup roller.

Hope this helps

Can't keep the yellow ink flowing - stops printing shortly after cleaning. I have cleaned it 5-6 times. Prints yellow right after cleaning then color fades out half way through first page.

Hi! Ok, Is you cartridge refilled? if yes then your yellow tank in the cartridge is maybe out. You can try this: Take a paper napkin and lightly and slowly touch the cartridge head where the color come out. If your cartridge is ok you should see some trace on the napkin. Try this a few time and your ink should be more and more be visible on the napkin.
If no trace then you have a problem with the cartridge head.
I hope it helped to you. Any question post me a message on [email protected]

Do you have a Mac OS X?

Kyocera FS1010 first page only half printed

I found this solution. Worked a treat. I took the printer apart and applied felts to the solenoids (the felt normally used for the bottom of cup coasters).

See the Success post in this thread...
http://www.copytechnet.com/forums/kyocera/15980-kyocera-fs1010-delayed-printing-1st-page-2.html#post55451


This manual helped too...
http://www.freeprintermanuals.com/PM/Kyocera%20FS-1010%20Parts%20Manual.pdf

This is the post...

Success
A solution has been found. Thank you to Steveauh (Townsville)

Kyocera in their wisdom have used a foam insulator on the 3 solenoids that disintegrates over time regardless of use.


  1. Open the right side of the printer
  2. Disconnect all connections to engine board
  3. Remove engine board
  4. Remove plastic guard (white)
  5. remove all 3 solenoids
  6. Replace all pads on the solenoids that come up against stops
    Registration Solenoid has 2 pads (1 against the solenoid frame and the other on a stop arm, the others just the frame pad)
  7. Keep thickness to around .4 - .5mm Too thick on register arm will cause early printing.
  8. Reassemble

And that is it. The arms were being magnetically delayed due the metallic contact. It seems to be a regular problem in this chassis FS1000 to FS1030.
