Samsung CLP300 laser printer does not take paper I have to help it

Hello,

I have a clp300 printer that is almost new. I use it for few pages/month.

Unfortunately the printer does not take the paper sheet from the paper tray.

I can improve the situation in two ways:

1) opening and closing again rear door sometimes solves the problem but for few sheets.

2) if I "help" the printer pushing the sheet with my hand it always take it and print it.

It seems a problem of the first stage of the sheet input.

What can I do?

Thanks,

Mario

The main issue with these printers are the pickup wheel. This tends to dry out and cause the paper to slip.

Open the back door to the printer and you will see a wheel on the bottom. 2 clips holding this in place. Undo the clips and it should be pushed down to release it. Once ot has been release you can access it from the front.

Once the wheel is out of the printer remove the rubber belt and wash it with warm water and soap. I used a putty knife to scrape the layer of crap that was on it. Be sure not to scrape to hard that it will tear. Once cleaned replace back on the wheel and replace wheel back on printer.
