Question about Samsung CLX 3160fn All-In-One Printer
I'm having an issue with my Samsung color laser printer. This thing has been a champ for a couple years just requiring new toner, emptying waste container, etc. I just replaced ALL of the toner cartridges, all 3 colors and the black. Even printing grayscale or pure black and white, it's very faded and streaky.

I have a CLX-2160N and have just emptied my own waste toner container. (Disclaimer: not sure how toxic or environmentally friendly this is).
Emptied carefully and thoroughly (fine dust). Immersed in bowl of warm soapy water, and vigorous shaking to get nice and clean.
Shook all water out well, and dried off as much as possible. Reinstalled. Turned printer back on. Hey presto - seems happy.

This is a very common problem with Samsung CLX-3160 and CLP-300 printers. The real problem is that the developer blades get dirty with the toner. Buying a new imaging unit will only fix the problem for a short period of time then it starts to get buildup on the developer blades.
You need to clean the developer blades. If there are streaking on any color, then also needs to be cleaned.
To clean the developer blades, look to this link. http://losingambition.com/clp300imagefix/ It describes how to clean them. It only takes a few minutes to do once you get the developers out of the unit. Just be careful when you clean the edge of the blades. You need to make sure that the residue is completely removed from the edge. Also be sure that when you reinstall the blade that the little foam does not get trapped below the blade. Otherwise when you print the side where the blade is not properly installed will have too much color.
If you are afraid of messing your printer up, then you need to buy a new imaging unit. They go around $100.
