Paper keeps jamming on Samsung CLX-3160 FN. How do I prevent this from happening?


Paper jams are typically caused by the rubber rollers inability to put paper through the machine. Try cleaning the roller with damp rag to see if that improves performance. If the roller is badly worn, it will need to be replaced.

Fine horizontal dashes in black have begun appearing all over the pages whether I print in b&w or color. This gets worse with each page in a long document. Samsung CLX-3160.


Your problem is the black toner cartridge pickup drum has become scratched and is depositing "extra" black toner onto the paper prior to the fuser roller. you need to replace the drum and all should be ok then

I have a Samsung CLX-3160FN, and after every page


Hi,

it is most likely that the fuser actuater arm is not sitting back to the sensor properly. open the back door you will be able to see the fuser, on your right hand side you should be able to see a fliper that sit in between a sensor. try to adjust the fliper flag and see if it works.

if it still continue to give you the same error. try remove the fuser four screw 2 side on each. adjust the flag again and fix it back. it should work and double check for any lose small pices of paper jam in the printer.

SPL-C ERROR with Samsung CLX-3160 FN when printing from iMac


This 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 picture below is from a Samsung CLP-300 but these both use the same Imaging Unit so this should work. It's just a little more involved taking off the top scanner / buttonpad off the CLX-3160.

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.

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.

Vertical line on page when scanning/faxing


Clean the scanner glass. You probably have some dirt or whiteout on it. Open up the top feeder and look at the narrow glass and you'll probably find it.

Double printing in my samsung 3160 fn


Double printing, such as second "ghost" image has nothing to do with cleaning, but with the drum unit. Print out the System Data Report (Press [MENU] until "System Configuration", then right arrow until "Reports", press [ENTER] and then right arrow until "System Data". Press [ENTER] twice to confirm.

With the report on hand, check the total color prints. If they are near 12,000 pages, change the drum. Be advised, the Image Unit (drum) is an expensive consumable. Part number is CLP-300A.

Be blessed.

Samsung 3561ND fails to print double sided.


Do you use the duplexer a lot? It sounds as if the rollers inside need to be cleaned. I don't recommend doing this yourself as it involves lifting the printer off of the duplexer, and I don't want to be responsible if you accidentally drop the printer or you or someone gets hurt. But that's how to get to it; the offending rollers should be visible, and may be cleaned with a clean rag moistened with a multi-purpose cleaner. Alcohol is what's recommended, but I shy away from it as it's known to dry the rubber, and all you want to do it clean the built-up dirt and paper duct off of it. Let me know how it works, if you do it! If you opt not to, call a qualified printer technician.
