Re: Samsung Printer CLX3175FN -- receiving message "Replace imaging unit soon." I've read other expert replies but am still missing some information. Can I replace the unit myself? How do I do...


Nancy, Your imaging unit has a limited lifecycle. Documentation states that it can make 24,000 B&W pages and 6,000 color. The message is telling you that you are getting close to that limit. Eventually you printer will stop printing, and your messahe will state "Replace imaging unit". This can be done by you. It is very easy to do. The imaging unit is fairly expensive: around $150 or more depending on the merchant and shipping charges.

Can not find the imaging unit for samsung CLX 3170. Do not know how to fix it. Printer says to to replace it soon.


Please have a look at the links below; each includes a short video to help explain the process. You should order an imaging unit to have on hand for replacement. At the end are included the product number for your consumables. Suggest you find a local supplier or seacrh on-line for a competive price or you can opt to puchase directly from Samsung.

I could not find information specific to your model on the proper relacements for the imaging unit and toner cartridges; however, I was able to find a statement that the CLX-3170FN and CLX-3175FN are the same printer the main difference is just the colour of the unit. They should therefore use the same imaging unit and toner cartridges which I have listed below:

CLT-M409S Magenta
CLT-C409S Cyan
CLT-K409S Black
CLT-R409 Imaging Unit
CLT-W409 Waste Toner Collector
CLT-Y409S Yellow

My Samsung CLX-3175FN is asking to replace the imaging unit soon. What is the imaging unit and where and how do I get a replacement?


You will have to purchase an new imaging drum. It is the shiny green metallic cylinder in the bottom back of the printer. It is the last piece to come out when you remove the toner waste unit and then all the toners. It sits on the very bottom/back of the toner bay. They are not cheap but do not need to be replaced very often and it will give like new printing after.

It won't feed paper, soon as it begins to feed, stops and red light comes on


I have a CLP-300, the paper jams alot also - I have found that cleaning the area around the imaging unit seems to help.

but usually the best fix is to replace the Waste Toner Bottle. that seems to let it work for awhile. If it starts acting up again, I'll empty the bottle, vacuum the imaging unit area and seems to help. I think 3 times is the most I have been able to do this before needing to use a new toner bottle.

Hopefully this helps...

The imaging unit is that whole assembly that the toners are plugged into inside the front door of your machine. It a consumable unit available at many office supply stores. The instructions to replace the unit are packed inside the box with the new unit.

Kindly take out the imaging unit out of the printer and take out and put it properly.

Samsung CLP 510 Imaging Unit


The Imaging unit needs to be replaced when the drum fills up with waste toner. That's what triggers the message.
