Service Manual
Precautions
1.3 ESD Precautions
Certain semiconductor devices can be easily damaged by static electricity. Such components are commonly called
“Electrostatically Sensitive (ES) Devices”, or ESDs. Examples of typical ESDs are: integrated circuits, some field
effect transistors, and semiconductor “chip” components.
The techniques outlined below should be followed to help reduce the incidence of component damage caused by
static electricity.
Caution >>Be sure no power is applied to the chassis or circuit, and observe all other safety precautions.
1. Immediately before handling a semiconductor component or semiconductor-equipped assembly, drain off any
electrostatic charge on your body by touching a known earth ground. Alternatively, employ a commercially available wrist strap device, which should be removed for your personal safety reasons prior to applying power to the
unit under test.
2. After removing an electrical assembly equipped with ESDs, place the assembly on a conductive surface, such as
aluminum or copper foil, or conductive foam, to prevent electrostatic charge buildup in the vicinity of the assembly.
3. Use only a grounded tip soldering iron to solder or desolder ESDs.
4. Use only an “anti-static” solder removal device. Some solder removal devices not classified as “anti-static” can
generate electrical charges sufficient to damage ESDs.
5. Do not use Freon-propelled chemicals. When sprayed, these can generate electrical charges sufficient to damage ESDs.
6. Do not remove a replacement ESD from its protective packaging until immediately before installing it. Most
replacement ESDs are packaged with all leads shorted together by conductive foam, aluminum foil, or a comparable conductive material.
7. Immediately before removing the protective shorting material from the leads of a replacement ESD, touch the protective material to the chassis or circuit assembly into which the device will be installed.
8. Maintain continuous electrical contact between the ESD and the assembly into which it will be installed, until completely plugged or soldered into the circuit.
9. Minimize bodily motions when handling unpackaged replacement ESDs. Normal motions, such as the brushing
together of clothing fabric and lifting one’s foot from a carpeted floor, can generate static electricity sufficient to
damage an ESD.

Summary of product
4.2.3 Paper Feed
This consists of the standard cassette, an optional cassette, an MP tray for supplying different types of media
(envelopes, labels, special paper) and other parts related to the movement of paper through the printer.
1) Paper separation method
Individual sheets are separated in the cassette using the ‘friction pad’ method. When paper feeds into the machine
it passes over a spring loaded friction pad that separates the sheets of paper.
2) Paper cassette
The paper cassette uses a ‘centre loading’ method There are no paper size sensors. Instead a software process is
used to detect the size of the first sheet of paper as it is fed through the machine. Both the rear and side paper
guides are adjustable to cater for various paper sizes.
There is a ‘Paper Empty’ sensor which detects the presence of paper (Capacity: 250 sheets).
There is an indicator flag on the front of the cassette which indicates the amount of paper remaining.
3) Pick-up roller
The pickup roller is used to pick-up and feed paper into the printer. It also is used to remove any static charge on
the paper.
4) MP tray
The Multi-purpose tray is used to hold non-standard paper sizes and special media (envelopes, transparencies
etc.). There is an MP paper empty sensor. It uses a friction pad method to ensure paper separation and can hold a
maximum of 50 sheets of paper or envelopes.
5) SCF (Second Cassette Feeder)
The optional second cassette unit is identical to the main cassette and has a capacity of 250 sheets.
4.2.4 Transfer Ass’y
Toner is transferred from the OPC drum onto the paper using a PTL (Pre-transfer Lamp) and a transfer roller. The
PTL shines light onto the OPC, this reduces the electrical charge on the surface of the OPC surface and improves
the efficiency of the transfer.
The transfer roller transfers toner from the OPC drum to the paper.
Life span: Print over 60,000 sheets (at 15~30ºC)
4.2.5 Driver Ass'y
Power is provided to the paper drive assembly under the control of the main PWA. The main motor powers the
paper feed, toner cartridge, fuser unit and all pick-up, feed and exit rollers.

Summary of Product
4.2.6 Fuser
There are two methods of fusing toner onto the paper: the existing heat lamp process and the Q-PID process
developed by Samsung. ML2250 export models, both 110V and 220V, use the heat lamp process.
This consists of a heat lamp, heat roller, pressure roller, thermistor and thermostat. By use of heat and pressure
toner is caused to melt and adhere to the paper surface in order to complete the printing process.
4.2.6.1 Thermistor and Thermostat
The thermistor is used to detect the temperature of the heating unit and feeds this information into the main
processor
If the heat lamp becomes too hot the Thermostat cuts off the power to the lamp in order to prevent over-heating
and any potential fire hazard is removed.
4.2.6.2 Heat roller
The heat roller transfers the heat from the heat lamp to the paper. The surface of the heat roller is coated with
Teflon so that toner does not stick to the surface.
4.2.6.3 Pressure roller
A pressure roller mounted under the heat roller is made of a silicon resin and the surface is also coated with
Teflon. When a paper passes between the heat roller and the pressure roller the toner powder is meted and
adheres to the surface of the paper permanently.
4.2.6.4 Safety features
To prevent overheating
- 1st protection device: Hardware cuts off when overheated
- 2nd protection device: Software cuts off when overheated
- 3rd protection device: Thermostat cuts off mains power to the lamp.
Safety device
- Fuser power is cut off when the front cover is opened
- LSU power is cut off when the front cover is opened
- The temperature of the fuser cover's surface is maintained at less than 80ºC to protect the user and a caution
label is attached where the customer can see it easily when the rear cover is opened.
4.2.7 LSU (Laser Scanner Unit)
This is the core of the laser printer. It converts the video data received from the computer into an electrostatic
latent image on the surface of the OPC drum. This is achieved by controlling the laser beam and exposing the
surface of the OPC drum to the laser light. A rotating polygon mirror reflects the laser light onto the OPC and each
side of the mirror is one scan line. The OPC drum turns as the paper feeds to scan the image down the page.
The /HSYNC signal is created when the laser beam from LSU reaches the end of the polygon mirror and this
signal is sent to the controller. The controller detects the /HSYNC signal to adjust the vertical line of the image on
paper. In other words after the /HSYNC signal is detected the image data is sent to the LSU to adjust the left
margin on the paper.

4.3.5 Sensor Input Circuit
4.3.5.1. Paper Empty Sensing
The Paper Empty sensor (Photo Interrupter) on the engine board is monitored by the CPU. When the cassette is
empty the printer flashes the red ERROR LED.
4.3.5.2. MP Sensing
Presence of paper in the MP tray is detected by operation of the MP Sensor (Photo Interrupter) on the frame. The
CPU monitors this sensor to recognize paper in the MP, and paper is fed from MP if there is paper present.
4.3.5.3. Paper Feeding
When paper passes the actuator on the feed sensor, it is detected by the Photo interrupter. This is monitored by
the CPU and this signal starts the process of creating the image after a certain delay time.
If the feed sensor is not detected within 1 sec. after paper is fed, a paper jam0 occurs. (Red ERROR LED is lit).
4.3.5.4. Toner Remain Sensing
The ML2250 does not have a toner sensor fitted
4.3.5.5. Paper Exit Sensing
This detects that paper exits cleanly from the set using an exit sensor on the engine board and actuator on the frame.
The CPU detects the on/off time of the exit sensor and normal operation or jam status is reported.
If a Jam 2 error occurs the Red ERROR LED is lit.
4.3.5.6. Cover Open Sensing
The Cover open sensor is located on the power supply board. It is operated by a molded tab on the front cover.
When the front cover is open the +24V and +5V supplies to the DC fan, solenoid, main motor, polygon motor part
of LSU,
HVPS and LSU Laser diode are cut off.
4.3.5.7. DC FAN/Solenoid Driving Circuit
A fan driving circuit is controlled by the CPU via a transistor. It is automatically turned off when a machine enters
sleep mode.
There are two solenoids, these are driven by signals from the CPU (MP and paper pick-up).
4.3.5.8. Motor Driving Circuit
The main motor drives the paper feed, developing unit, Fuser and Exit ass'y. It is driven by software which controls
the acceleration, constant speed and deceleration profiles. The Motor is driven using an A3977 driver IC.

Summary of product
4.3.5.9 Transfer
The charging voltage, developing voltage and the transfer voltage are controlled by PWM (Pulse Width
Modulation). Each output voltage is changeable according to the PWM duty cycle. The transfer voltage used when
the paper passes the transfer roller is decided by environment recognition. The resistance value of the transfer
roller changes due to the surrounding environment in the room or within the set, this change in resistance in turn
changes the value of the voltage due to loading. This voltage is fed back into the set through the A/D converter.
Based on this fed back value the PWM cycle is changed to maintain the required transfer voltage
4.3.5.10 Fusing
The temperature of the heat roller's surface is detected according to the resistance value of the thermistor.
The thermistor resistance is measured using the A/D converter and thus the CPU can determine the temperature
of the heat roller. The AC power is controlled by comparing the target temperature to the value from the thermistor.
If the value from the thermistor is out of the controlling range while controlling the fusing process, the error stated
in the table occurs. (For the domestic model, the Q-PID method has been applied.)

4.4 SMPS & HVPS
The SMPS and HVPS are on one integrated board.
The SMPS supplies the DC power to the system. It takes either 110V or 220V and outputs the +5V and +24VS
supplies to the main and other PBAs.
The HVPS creates the high voltage of THV/MHV/Supply/Dev and supplies it to the toner cartridge. The CPU is
used to modify some of these voltage settings to provide the ideal voltages to create the image.
The HVPS part uses the 24V and outputs the high voltage for THV/MHV/BIAS and the outputted high voltage is
supplied to the toner, OPC cartridge and transfer roller.

5. Disassembly and Reassembly
5.1 General Precautions on Disassembly
When you disassemble and reassemble components, you must use extreme caution. The close
proximity of cables to moving parts makes proper
routing a must.
If components are removed, any cables disturbed
by the procedure must be restored as close as
possible to their original positions. Before removing any component from the machine, note the
cable routing that will be affected.
Releasing Plastic Latches
Many of the parts are held in place with plastic
latches. The latches break easily; release them
carefully.
To remove such parts, press the hook end of the
latch away from the part to which it is latched.
Whenever servicing the machine, you
must perform as follows:
1. Check to verify that documents are not stored
in memory.
2. Be sure to remove the toner cartridge before
you disassemble parts.
3. Unplug the power cord.
4. Use a flat and clean surface.
5. Replace only with authorized components.
6. Do not force plastic-material components.
7. Make sure all components are in their proper
position.

6.3 Clearing Paper Jams
Occasionally, paper can be jammed during a print job. Some of causes include:
• The tray is loaded improperly or overfilled.
• The tray has been pulled out during a print job.
• The front cover has been opened during a print job.
• Paper that does not meet paper specifications has been used.
• Paper that is outside of the supported size range has been used.
If a paper jam occurs, the On Line/Error LED on the control panel lights red. Find and remove the jammed
paper. If there is no paper visible look inside the printer.
Do not use tweezers or other sharp metal tools when removing a jam. You may damage the toner cartridge,
fuser rollers or potentially damage wiring insulation leading to an electric shock..
Note If, when removing jammed paper, the paper tears ensure that ALL fragments of paper are removed from
the printer otherwise a jam will re-occur.
6.3.1 In the Paper Exit Area (JAM2)
1) If the paper jams as it exits to the output tray and a
long portion of the paper is visible, pull the paper
straight out.
When you pull the jammed paper, if there is resistance and the paper does not move immediately, stop
pulling. Continue with the next step.
2) Open the rear output tray.
3) Loosen the paper if it is caught in the feed rollers.
Then pull the paper gently out.
Note: Please be careful when you open the rear cover.
The inside of the printer is still hot.
4) Close the rear output tray. Open and close the front
cover. Printing can be resumed.
Caution: paper jammed in this area is very close to the
fuser. This can be extremely hot. Take care
not to get burned.

3. Periodically a noise like "tick
tick" occurs - Measure the
time between ticks.
4. White vertical stripes on the
whole or part of the page :
Shake the toner cartridge and
then recheck. OK: Lack of
toner, so the life is nearly
expired
Solution
1. All of 1, 2, 3
If image quality improves by
shaking, replace with a new
toner cartridge. Perhaps up to
100 pages left before out of
toner.
2. For item 2If image quality improves after
cleaning the LSU window then
the toner cartridge is normal.
(Contamination on the LSU
window has caused image
quality problems.)
3. For item 3If the time between ticks is
about 2 seconds, the toner
inside the toner cartridge is
almost exhausted.
( Purchase and replace with a
new toner cartridge. Perhaps up
to 200 pages left before out of
toner)
4. For item 3This is a phenomenon caused
by lack of toner, so replace the
toner cartridge.

7.5 Software Problems – Causes and Solutions
7.5.1 The printer is not working (1)
• Description
While Power turned on, the printer is not working in the printing mode.
Check and Cause
Solution
1. Print a Demo Page: When the Ready lamp is lit press
and hold the Cancel button until the lamps flash.
Release the button.
1. If the test print works that means there are no
problems in the printer itself. If the test printing does
not work that means the printer is faulty and the
problem is not due to computer software or driver
settings.
2. Check that the PC and the printer are properly
connected and that the toner cartridge installed
correctly.
2. Replace the printer cable. If the problem is not
solved even after the cable is replaced, check the
amount of the remaining toner.
3. Printing is not working in the Windows.
3. Check that the connection between PC and printer
port are correcct. If you use windows, check that the
printer driver in the controller is set up correctly set
up, the correct port is selected and ‘Use On-line’ is
selected in the driver. If the printer driver is properly
set up try printing a test page from the driver properties. Check in which program printing is not working.
Try opening ‘Memo Pad’ and printing. If the printer
is not working in a certain program, adjust the setup
within that program.
Sometimes, the printout is normal within the
Windows basic programs, but it's not working in a
particular program. In this case, uninstall and reinstall the new driver. If the printer is not working in
the Windows basic programs and you are printing
using the parallel port check the port setting in
CMOS is on ECP and that the address is IRQ 7
and 378 (for parallel port 1). Try using USB instead
of parallel – or vice versa.
4. Check that the printer cable is directly connected to the
printer.
4. If you have other devices that need to share the
printer port try temporarily disconnecting these
devices 9and perhaps even uninstalling their drivers) to ensure the printer works by itself. If you are
using a USB hub try connecting directly to the back
of the PC instead.

Troubleshooting
7.5.2 The printer is not working (2)
• Description
After receiving the print command there is no response at all or print speed is low
due to wrong setup of the environment rather than malfunction of the printer itself.
Check and Cause
Solution
1. Ensure you have sufficient free hard disk space for the
temporary work files created during printing.
1. Not working with the message 'insufficient printer
memory' means there is a hard disk space problem
rather than a printer RAM problem. In this case provide more space on the hard disk. Secure more
space using the disk utilities program.
2. Printing error occurs even if there is enough space in
the hard disk.
2. The connection of the cable and printer port is not
correct. Check that the cable is properly connected
and if you are using the parallel port check that the
port settings in CMOS is correct.
3. Check the parallel-port-related items in the CMOS
Setup.
3. For the printer port, Select ECP. SPP and normal
normal modes support 8-bit data transfer, while
ECP Mode supports 12-bit data transfer.
4. Reboot the system to print.
4. If the regular font is not printing, the cable or the
printer driver may be defective.
Turn the PC and printer off, and reboot the system
to print again. If not solved, double-click the printer
in my computer If the regular fonts are not printed
this time again. the cable must be defective so
replace the cable with new one.

Troubleshooting
7.5.3 Abnormal Printing
• Description
Printing does not work – even after replacing the cable
Printer does not work at all or strange fonts are printed,
Check and Cause
Solution
1. Set up the parallel port using CMOS SETUP.
1. Ensure that ECP (best) or SPP is selected in the
CMOS (BIOS) setup.
2. Printer Driver Error.
2. Ensure that the correct driver is loaded. Use the
driver supplied on the CD or downloaded from the
Samsung web site. DO NOT use the Microsoft
driver supplied with the Windows operating system.
If the printer is a GDI or SPL type printer ensure that
ALL OTHER GDI or SPL drivers are uninstalled as
Windows allows only 1 of this type of driver to be
loaded.
3. Error message “insufficient memory”.
(The printing job sometimes stops due to insufficient
virtual memory, this is caused by insufficient space on
the hard disk.)
3. Delete any unnecessary files to secure enough
space on the hard disk and start the print job again.

Troubleshooting
7.5.4 SPOOL Error
• Description
SPOOL (simultaneous peripheral operations online) is the process Windows uses to
manage print jobs. Jobs are processed and then stored on the hard disk until the printer is
ready to accept them
Check and Cause
Solution
1. Insufficient space on the hard disk in the directory
assigned for the basic spool.
1. Delete any unnecessary files to provide more space
for spool storage.
2. If previous printing errors were not solved.
2. There may be files from previous failed print jobs on
the hard disk with the name in the form ‘*.jnl’.
Delete these files and Reboot Windows to restart
the printer.
3. There may be conflict with other drivers or programs.
3. Shut down all other programs except the current
one, if possible.
4. When an application program or the printer driver is
damaged.
4. Delete the printer driver completely and reinstall it.
5. When some files related to the OS are damaged or
virus infected.
5 After rebooting the computer, check for viruses,
restore the damaged files and reinstall the
application program which is not working properly.
6. Memory is less than suggested.
6. Add up more memory to the PC.
How to delete the data in the spool manager.
In the spool manager, the installed drivers and the list of the documents waiting to be printed are shown.
Select the document to be deleted and check delete in the menu.
If the job you are deleting is the current job when you delete the job data that has already been transferred to
the printer’s memory will still be printed. If there is a problem with the printer (out of toner, offline, out of paper
etc.) the job may take a long time to delete as it must wait for a time out.
