Question about Samsung CLX 3160fn All-In-One Printer
My smasung clx3160fn makes a clunking sound when i turn it on and says "scanner locked" on the little screen. It will not copy or scan, but will print still. It is like the scanning light is stuck and won't move along the track. Any suggestions?
I went through the same thing! It drove me nuts, and I even calls CS, which is great by the way. The sweet girl on the other line couldn't figure it out, but I finally Googled it.
In the opening where the printed pages come out, if you put your hand in there, on the top left is a lever.
This is the scanner lock. Once you flip the lever and hit the stop/clear button, it should be all better. At least that is what worked for me!

The scanner lock on the 3160fn is located underneath the scanner where you reach your hand into pull out the printed papers. On the top to the left. Flip the switch... power off ... then power back on and it works. Hours of anger management could have been averted with some simple user guide documentation.
