Question about Samsung CLX-3160 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Cannot push scan on Mac

I'm a mac user, and I cannot push scan through the Samsung CLX-3160. I can pull scan, but then I can only scan single pages. I was hoping to use this scanner to feed documents through the ADF and save multiple pages into a single .pdf file. When I choose the "Scan to an Application" or any of the other Scan features on the printer itself, it either says "Connecting" for a while and then totally stops, or else it says "Connection Error." In Photoshop, I'm readily able to pull images from it, so obviously, my computer knows that the scanner is there. Any thoughts?

    I have the same problem. Actually, I was not even able to pull scan. How did you it? I installed the Samsung software, but my Mac doesn't see the scanner. I can print, though, so the printer is connected properly.

Are you working wireless? Connect directly by cable and you can work in two directions (printing is oneway and scanning too, but than the other way around. The last is only possible with cable connection)

I'm not sure if it is a similar problem but I have a CLX-3170FN and it has started to run a strange line down the page, and part of the page was smudged. I cleaned it all out and looked at the drum etc and it was all fine. Then I spotted there is a plastic belt that must run like a conveyor belt behind the drum and there is a split running along it - Found out it is called the transfer belt. It was difficult to see which I why I am suggesting it to you. Now I just have to find how I can replace mine. :)

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.

You can buy toner cartridges to this machine and fix the problem yourselves. Go to any office supply store and they will have toner cartridges for the Samsung clx 3160. The display will flash the name fo the cartridge color that needs to be replaced. Just open the front door of the machine, pull out the empty cartridges and pop in the new ones.

Samsung CLX-3160FN prints and copies fine but can't scan


This may be obvious, but there's a "scanner lock" on this machine. It ships locked, and you need to unlock it when you receive it. Look up under where the paper comes out when you print, and on the left there's a little green switch. Make sure it's pulled towards you (you can see it also through the glass on the scanner bed).
