Samsung CLP - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Samsung CLP-300 'dev. home error'
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
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
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.

Transfer belt error, lever unlocking
There is sensor inside the transfer belt, on the bottom side of the
transfer belt (pink side).You have to screw off 2 screws from the
plastic cover from the pink side of the transfer belt. When you screw
off plastic cover, you will see three wires which is going to sensor.
There is 1 screw which hold sensor; you have to screw off that and
gently pull out sensor. Sensor looks like letter U, and on the inner
side of the sensor there is two small holes on the opposite sides. You
have to clean that holes (blowing or with small brush). Clean it well.
After that, reassemble transfer belt, put it back, and turn on printer, that solve and fix the problem.
Replace/Install toner waste bin error
The toner box is probably full. The toner box is a clear box on the left side when you open the front cover. The box has the labels Y, M, C, and K on it. Pull it out using the tab at the bottom. find a place to empty it. You can do this by turning it upside down and gently tapping it. If the box is full some toner may be outside of the box causing the sensor to be blocked even after it is empty. You may want to clean the box, toner cartriges and inside the cavity with qtip, tissue paper (without lotion), or air.
Paper feeding halfway through then stops
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps.
Samsung clp 315 red light
The red light error can be caused by the following:
1. Paper is empty on the tray.
2. Access door panel is still opened.
3. Paper jam
4. Toner is empty
5. Broken parts inside the printer.
Try to check those things.
SAMSUNG CLP 315 paper jam
the printer may be detecting dust or something on the sensor, and detecting it as a jam
try to get the sensors cleaned, tell us how you go
Samsung CLP-300 paper feed
Clean the feed roller.
Remove the paper tray, from the bottom there is a grey rubber semi wheel in the middle front of where the paper tray would be. Use a cloth with WD-40, brake cleaner, or lighter fluid to lightly wipe the rubber clean. Put the paper tray back in and it should print.
Samsung CLP-300 Paper Feed Problem
I had same problem and it got resolved by lifting the front portion of the paper tray up. I put a spare USB drive under the paper tray for sufficient push upwards. It seems to be working fine now for me.
Clean the toner roller bladesYou Tube Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ipw1RjwzUDgShows you the problem & how to fix it. There's a metal blade on the edge of each toner roller which can get clogged with small bits of toner & prevent even distribution. Clean the blade with a lolly stick & put it back together.I tried this with CLP 320 cartridge - same principle but can be messy because the cartridge is full of toner powder.
Error Message--Waste Toner Tank Full/Not Install
What I have started to do is to actually wash the toner tank out with water and make sure it is good and dry then be sure the section that breaks the light sensor is good and clean (it is on the left side as you look at the backside - the side that goes toward the printer - and protrudes out) the tank full indication comes on when the tank gets dirty
"Waste toner tank full"message won't clear
I had the same problem with my printer. On the back of the waste toner cartridge is a tab that sticks out. A photoelectric shine thru this tab to let you know when the cartridge is full. My photoelectric had gone out and was giving the same error message. I took my printer apart and cut the wires loose on each side of the photoelectric and shorted them together to complete the circuit. The only problem in doing this is you have to occasionally check the waste toner cartridge yourself to make sure it does not overfill.
Waste toner tank full/not install keep displaying
The sensor for the waste toner tank is dirty or defective. The toner sensor is on the right as you look at the panel just below the liquid crystal display. There is a bump in the clear plastic just below the circular right vent port, that's where the used toner pours in. When you clean out the toner cartridge there is some residue left that makes the sensor think it's still full. Take a piece of paper towel and a small screwdriver (I'm told a bent coat hanger will work, too) and clean the inside of the sensor window inside the used toner cartridge (w/ access through the toner port). It looks like a little raised groove on the right. Just wipe it until it's clear on the inside. The sensor can now see through the window and you should be okay.
Otherwise, the sensor may need to be replaced by an authorized Samsung technician.
Let me know how it works out!
Samsung clx 3175 problems. some horixontal and
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.
