CLX-3175FN Draws 14 Amps when printing

My new CLX-3175FN draws 14 Amps when printing thereby causing lights in the room to dim and flicker. This happens only while printing and not while scanning. The room has the standard 15 amps limit (per Maryland law). The printer specs state 8 amps. Is this normal? Called Samsung - the lady did not understand the problem and said that power usage had nothing to do with the printer?!! Her supervisor never returned my call.

    Same problem here. 5 year old house. I never thought to look at the spec's. Maybe I can return the printer as a potential electrical/fire hazard.
    Need a new black cartridge soon.

    I wonder if the high amp draw would have killed my usb ports? I now have the printer connected thru my router. Anytime I plug anything into one of the 7 usb ports, the computer crashes. I ended up disabling the ports that are built into the computer and installing a usb card.

SOURCE: Constant Paper jams on CLX-3175FN

The fact that there appears to be no actual jam tells me that it is not picking up paper out of the tray. Try some alcohol on the pickup rollers, rubbing well. If that helps, replace these rollers.

Direct wireless is not applicable to this model. If you have a wi-fi network set-up, you'll have to use a cable to connect the unit directly to your router then configure the printer to be a part of your network. After that, you should be able to do wireless print.

SOURCE: Multi-function Samsung CLX-3175 doesn't scan to PC

I had the same issue with Windows 7 64 bit.I managed to solve it by doing the following
1. Locate the scan2pc.exe program in C:\Windows\twain_32\Samsung\CLX3170 2. Right-click/properties - Compatibility tab. 3.Set compatibility to win xp. Set "Run as Administrator"
I also added the scan2pc.exe to the firewall allowed programs (did that for scanmgr.exe as well, but I don't think I needed to).
Works great now!
Good luck!!

Brand new Samsung multi-function CLX-3175FN prints a shadow or "ghost" image in color.


Have you done a print head alignment? If yes, and that did not fix it, take it back before you warranty runs out. Most modern day electronic devices work perfect but when they don't they also do it perfectly.

The only things you can do is print head alignment and making sure when you installed those nice new print cartridges that they are pushed in all the way. To try and test anything else will cost money and since this is a brand new device it is best returned.
