This will usually solve the problem.
Open the front door, take out the Drum / Toner cartridge assembly. Blow with air on the left side and right side to blow out the toner. do not have the air to close to the unit so that liquid sprays out, and as much as possible, avoid the drum. Then rotate all the black gears, 2 full rotations as possible. The drum gear will be the hardest.

This should solve the problem.

Open complete body of the machine. right hand side you will find developer drive assambly attached with gear assambly.this assambly contains one solonoid and one multi step clutch unit.
you will find one spring on solonoid unit.remove that spring and cut it in middle.take one part of the spring and bend one ring of spring from cut side to make proper shape. fix it back to solonoide. this is just for increase tension on stopper liver.
it will solve your problem for DEVE HOME SENSOR ERROR.
GOOOOOD LUCK

This can be fixed by stretching out a solenoid spring on the power cord side of the printer. The solenoid acts as a clutch to stop the spinning developer actuator at the right spot.

Below steps are for the CLP-300 which has the same Imager/Developer. It's just a bit more involved taking off the top in the CLX-3160.

Open up the right side (power cord side) of the printer (take off top cover, then take off side cover). Then, find a solenoid (little metal square) that touches the white plastic vertical spur gear. Take the spring off the solenoid. Now, put the spring back on - only this time you will attach one anchor point to the middle of the spring as to pre-stretch the spring for more tension.

The problem is that the spring gets weak over time / the cogs round out over time and the solenoid finger is overcome by the spinning cogs, and resulting in selecting the wrong developer.

Deve home sensor error


You could try replacing the Image Unit (but these are quite expensive). This error actually refers to an optical sensor located in the gearbox (RHS of machine). The sensor controls the drive to the individual dev units, hence the "dev home error" if it malfunctions.
Probably a job for an engineer.....

The web does not offer alot on this error. However the users manual indicates it is a fuser issue. Try a new maintenance kit. That should include the fuser and all rollers.
