Samsung CLP-300 Firmware Upgrade a serious mistake

Samsung CLP-300 Firmware Upgrade a serious mistake by deluxe (6/2/08 6:15 AM) reply + / -
I have a CLP-300 and upgraded the firmware to the new version on their website v1.00.12.35. DON'T DO IT!!! My printer has factory-original toner and this firmware upgrade made my printer a piece of crap.

With the new firmware, the text output is much thicker and fuzzier, the nice grayscale contrast is gone and replaced with much darker tones, and there are ERRORS in the graphics that show up as squiggly white lines. I'm appalled that Samsung released this firmware into the wild as it's effectively crippled my printer's output and makes even simple sheet of text look unpresntable.

I've written Samsung twice asking for some resolution, but haven't received a reply. This is horrible. I'm ready to throw my printer out the window and buy a Brother.

There are two different print engines used in the CLP-300. One for 2006, and a different one starting in 2007. I have the older 2006 printer, and the current firmware is only for the new 2007+ print engine.

I talked to Samsung support here in Korea and fixed the problem. They sent me to their special tech support website at www.1479.co.kr (only in Korean) and I was able to download an older version of the firmware which restored my printing ability.

The latest version of firmware that worked with my printer was found in this post: http://www.bassmania.co.kr

Download the two files at the top, then extract the archive. Drag-n-drop the correct firmware file onto "usblist2.exe" and the printer will be flashed with the firmware (must be connected via USB if you're using the CLP-300N model).

download all files, then try to open file CLP300_V1.00.01.26.01.OldHVPS.hd0 (for clp300)
or
CLP300N_V1.00.01.26.01.OldHVPS.hd0 (for clp300N)
then klick *OPEN WITH*, then browse and select downloaded file *usblist2.exe*
Run it, and all will be fine.
Mine NEW printer has same trouble, and now working fine.

Dear Oller,

Could you send me directly this file: CLP300_V1.00.01.26.01.OldHVPS.hd0
because the offered site is not including these now.
My adress is: keszics@gmail.com
Thanks a lot, If you can help!

Best regards, Csiszek

I have a CLX-3160FN with the same problem, dark fuzzy print after firmware upgrade. Is there a link to the old firmware for this printer? Can you email it to me? What a real pain! Thanks.

Can you send me the CLP300N_V1.00.01.26.01.OldHVPS.hd0 (for clp300N)
version and how to do this?

I updated the firmware and have gotten disasterous results also.

Did you even manage to downgrade your firmware for the CLP-300N? because mine will not downgrade, it seems to reject the firmware :(
