Samsung CLP - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

I should have updated this a while ago, as I see others have had the same problem since my post on 27 August.

After calling Samsung technician out to take a look, he suggested getting a higher quality cable (conected to the computer). Despite the fact that the cable which we'd been using for months always seemed to work ok, we got another one of higher quality, and the printer now works fine.

I don't know why the cable stopped working efficiently, but it did.

I hope this helps...

"MP" tray is refering to the top fold down tray on the front of printer (bypass tray) You might load paper in the bypass and see what it does?

Dev. Home error can be fixed by stretching out a solenoid spring on the power cord side of the printer. The solenoid acts as a clutch to stop the spinning developer actuator at the right spot.

The problem is that the spring gets weak over time / the cogs round out over time and the solenoid finger is overcome by the spinning cogs, and resulting in selecting the wrong developer.

Open up the right side (power cord side) of the printer (take off top cover, then take off side cover). Then, find a solenoid (little metal square) that touches the white plastic vertical spur gear. Take the spring off the solenoid. Now, put the spring back on - only this time you will attach one anchor point to the middle of the spring as to pre-stretch the spring for more tension.

Hi Harish and others,I didn't see all of the thread but:I have a clx3175fw which for now 3 months only have printed with smears, lines, and ghost-images from preceeding pages.shortly before trashing the printer because just getting a quote on fixing the printer in shipping whould be close to usd 150. Actual fixing price would probably be higher. If it hadn't been for the fact that I have a stash of toner and the usual consumables for the next 5 years of private use I would have trashed the printer!BUT: a guy called Michael Ionita (Austrian I think) posted this fix which I finally found via google. And it just worked like a charm. I think it took me less than 8 minutes to fix the printer. And now I know the drill I'd be able to do it en 3 minutes next time. My only comment to his instructions is as follows: where he states "Use a small white paper and try to stick it into the top - like shown": make sure you follow the angle of the glossy plastic from the back of the printer and upwards - AND: "trying" is not enough, you have to push it firmly to squeeze it up to where the toner residuance should be removed. No violance needed - just try harder until you see the paper is picking up toner - and you should be home free. Br, Jens K from Copenhagen.

I have a utility to reset the consumables errors on this printer, but only if the component is past its lifecount. (60k for transfer belt)

Its called CLP-300_Reset_RLCv04.exe or just RLCV-04.exe (if you can find a copy)

If you need a copy, let me know and I'll find some way to get it to you.

I've used it for transfer belt reset and it works.

make sure that when you go to print under propertys choose color tab and then color

Ghosting appears often because of bad toner. If cartridges have been refilled, they have wrong toner in them. If drum has worn out it will usually tell you. All parts for this machine cost too much. If toner is not the problem, probably best to get a new machine rather than pay to get it fixed. Brothers are cheaper to run.
