Faint grey printing

According to the service manual for problems with light print image, the cause can be the Developers or High Voltage Power Supply (HVPS). Other possible causes are given as: Developer roller is stained when the toner or developer cartridge is almost consumed. Ambient temperature is below 10 degrees Centigrade. Bad contacts with the HVPS or abnormal output from the HVPS. To replace the Developers you would need to purchase a replacement Imaging Kit CLP-R300A. Any problems in the HVPS would require a factory repair.

My Samsung printer clp-300 gives very poor black printing. The color printing is OK. I replaced the cartridge, I shook it more than once, but still it does not print like it should. Does any one know a...

What do you mean that you get poor black printing? Is it faded on vertically, with one side of the page or or portions of the print faint? If so, the problem lies with the imaging unit, specifically the black developer blades. You can fix it by buying a new one. But eventually you need another one. This is the more expensive route. But, if you are handy you can clean it up yourself. If you look at my tips section, I have posted a detailed instructions to show you how you can do it yourself.

Black print is very faint

If the print is faint, streaky in a vertical fashion up and down the page, the problem lies with the developer blades in the imaging unit. To fix this, you will need to clean the blades or buy a new imaging unit. The imaging unit cost $100+ and the problem will be fixed until the blades get dirty again. Or you can learn how to clean the blades yourself. I have an instruction post and it can be found by clicking on the following link
Hope this helps.

Samsung CLP-300 Printer not printing black well

You need to take it a couple steps further after your test print. Sounds like your print heads need cleaning or your cartridge may need aligning. It's best to do this each time you install a new cartridge. get more information and help from here .

CLP-300; new black cartridge; prints, results are grey,

I suspect the problem is common. The Imaging unit requires a Black developer to be replaced. you may approach samsung service center for this.

Half the page is dark grey

Low toner.
Consider how often you print.
If you print more than twice a day, toner will tend to run low after half a year, so I would buy a replacement cartridge and see if this solves your issue.
They aren't terribly expensive, so it is worth a shot.
