    I also have a Samsung CLX-3160FN. I have had the "Paper Jam" and "Paper Mismatch" problem ever since it was new. Samsung has had me buy different paper, clean the rollers, check the toner, etc., but the problem has never been resolved. I have made about 300 copies total in the two years that I have owned it. Of course, I was never able to warranty it because it would work when tested. I just don't think a new printer should have this many problems. Especially, for a $700 cost.

On a clx-6200 message says "paper jam 0-c=open/close door. what door is this?

It is telling you that there is a paper jam. Open the door, pull the jammed paper out, close the door, it should clear the message.

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.

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


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.

I removed a paper jam from rear of clx-3160fn. Now the rear door will not close all the way. The two plastic tabs on the rails inside seem to be in the way. Everything I have tried to do and move around...

power it off and on again ...but first repeat the operation like you did when you removed the paper might not be slide back completely ...
when you power it on keep the button pressed to reset ....
also take a good look to the roller to have all in place might be not in place cause you forced the paper out ..or not removed all the paper if it broke in the process ..

I get a paper jam every time I try to print, how do I keep printer from getting a paper jam?

There may be a piece of paper or other object in the paper channel. Open the printer up as much as you can and look for a piece of paper. Also, did you change the paper type? Maybe the paper is the problem.

CLX-3160FN Paper Jam when there is no paper jam.

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud
