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

3 Answers

No paper When I try and print it says "PC print pending" then flashes " [no paper} add paper ". The tray has paper in it. I have tried one sheet to several sheets. I can feed through manually (but it grabs and feeds through on an angle).

    I have pulled out the tray and tried to locate the plastic flags - but cannot see anything sticking up. I had a look through the printer and found one plastic tab (tooth shaped) that is moving freely. I have had a look in Printers and Faxes and no job is pending. It seems to be in the printers memory now.

    I have the same problem. This only happens if I leave the printer on for awhile. If I turn off the printer, and turn it on ONLY when I need to print then it works. If its been idling for a couple hours, the "NO PAPER" message will keep flashing even though there is paper in the tray. Seems like an overheating problem for me. Very frusterating...

I had this problem on Win XP Pro. The machine would scan, local copy and manual feed. Contacted Samsung and they instructed me to download and reinstall the latest driver from their website. The problem now appears to fixed. Their view was that the driver got screwed. That the wonders of Windows! Liam

If you have turned off the printer, with a job pending, and you turn on again, the job is partially lost, and the first part of a print job have the initial commands for formatting the print, so some printers just print loose characters, other react like yours, and keep waiting. What you can do, is: first: turn off the printer; second: cancel the job (wait several minutes till the cancelling is complete, and the printer window in your pc is completely empty, so turn on the printer again, and try to prnt.

    In the printer memory does not remains anything after you turn off and tur on the printer again. Maybe you have a problem in the logical board of the printer. In this case you´ll have to call a technician.

Tracoi, first you need to clear pending prints. If your using WinXP, click the start button slide up to & left click on Printer and Faxes. Click on your printer & clear/end prints pending. Power off your printer & look in the printer where the paper path is. As the paper passes through the printer, it pushes against little black sticks that wobble back and forth to trip the different sensors. These little 'flags' usually kind of stick up in the middle of the plastic along the paper path. Look over the whole paper path and find all the little flags and make sure they're all moving freely. Sometime they get knocked out of place. You only need one to mess up the printer function.

If this did not help just let me know & we'll try something else.

Every time I try to print to my Dell 3110cn printer, a message pops up stating "Load Tray 1 024965 Executive" Paper tray is full and inserted correctly...what do I need to do to make it print?

I would try two steps:
1) Check the "pending documents" for your printer and make sure the printer queue is empty - delete any pending document.
2) Check the printer settings and make sure the default paper type is not set to "Executive". You may also check this in the paper properties of the document that you want to print.

I think your there is a pending command to print, even if you have turned your printer on and off, it will print already because the pending printed papers in your computer is automatically printed, you need to check the printer status in your computer. just click start then all programs, then click printers and fax, now you can see now the printer icon just double click that, if you can see a pending printed, just right click and cancel, if you can not see the pending you printed document, you need to restart your computer so that all the pending command will turn out.

Good luck

    When printing paper continues to jam.

    1. Take out paper tray 1.
    2. Remove any jammed sheets of paper you find there.
    3. Once you have done this, reinstall the paper tray and try printing again.
      Note: You may receive a message informing you that another sheet of paper is jammed elsewhere in the printer. If so, please open the front door and remove the toner cartridge. Also open the rear door of the printer (and the duplex option if a duplex unit is installed). Remove any and all jammed sheets of paper you find. Then try printing again.
    4. If the printer jams again with a 241 Paper Jam error message, look to see if it has tried to feed a sheet of paper out of the tray.

    Not printing

    There is probably a paper jam in the tray feed path. The other situation is that the tray paper pick up roller has become hardened/polished, or the paper tray paper is greasy. First step, take the paper from the tray, and fan it out, so each sheet is separated from the next. try it with jut a dozen or so sheets, change the paper.

    Thoroughly check the paper feed path.

    If not working, then check/clean the rollers.
