I do believe that the low heat error is talking about having low heat at the paper fuser (the part of the printer that makes the writing stick to the paper). This can either be caused by a bad fuser or by a bad controller board that is connected to the fuser. There is not much that you the user can do to fix this problem. I would take the printer to an authorized repair center in your area.

"Open heat error" ---
open the back cover and you find a two wire connector just near ribbon connector it is thermistor connector the printer is sensing this connector as open or not connected explore and fix.

My 3175FW has same problem. None of the quick fixes worked. I took it to a service company. They tried a fusion unit, but that didn't fix it. Their estimate is that the printer needs a new power supply -- $300 before labor. Not worth it. Can't believe I spent that much money for a top quality printer (so I thought) and it lasted less than 2 years. Never again, Samsung.

My samsung CLX 2160 giving me Low heat cycle power error

To clear the "low heat" error, turn the machine off and unplug it from the wall. Wait a couple seconds then plug it back in and turn it on. Hopefully the error will clear and you can resume normal operation.

If the error still occurs, you'll have to call a service technician to either fix or replace your printer's fusing unit.

Non-working printer; no paper pickup

The solution shown for the Samsung CLX-3160FN All-In-One works also for the Samsung CLX-2160N.
The associated picture and methodology of "pre-stretching" the solenoid spring is virtually identical for both printers.
Worked for me on the CLX-2160N

How do I fix a transfer belt laser error? unplugging the power cord does not work What does this transfer belt look like? where is it located in my samsung CLX-2160N laser printer? thanks!

The transfer belt is a consumable like the toner, you will have to buy a new one once its run out so your printer is telling you it has so buy a new one. They look like a small conveyor belt from a supermarket and is generally located under the toner or fuser unit housing.
