Question about Samsung CLX-2160N All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Hi I have a CLX-2160 multifunction laser printer, I have just replaced the black cartridge and the machine prints but the black print is faded (just like before I changed the cartridge!) What's the explanation?What can I do ? could the old ink be dried up or obstructing the mouth of the ink feeder? Naz i have the same problem. have changed all toner but the print/copy is very faded and poor, as if all toner cartridges are empty. very disappointed.

    i have also the same problem: despite having inserted anew black toner, the printout appears fade with white vertical lines. No problem with color print.

Hi, I have had my CLX-2160 printer for 3 years now and its started to print with a fade on the left side only and have just under half black ink left. Is it worth changing the black toner cartridge or does...


Hello.
There are two reasons the fade happens. Running out of toner and the drum not responding correctly. The Drum is the unit that transfers the toner to the paper. if it gets damaged or dirty inconsistent print is usually the result. Try taking the toner out, shaking it and replacing it to see if it affects the print quality. if it does not price a replacement drum and toner, compare it to the price of a new printer and this will answer the second part of your question!!!
I hope this helps Regards GM

The problem I have with my Samsung CLX-2160 is that it is only the blue which is not printing evenly - it fades out across the page. The others colours + black are all printing fine & evenly. Any...


you'll need to get to the transfer rollers and de-magnetize them. There should be a "Corona wire" that you can slide from one end of the transfer roller all the way to the other. On the other hand, you may be facing a clog in the blue toner channels, so a thorough cleanup of the entire assembly should help. Or, make a full-blue A4/letter sized document and print it out. Maybe the large amount of blue toner can de-clog the channels. Also, keep the old blue toner if it's not empty because this is not a toner issue.

If your printer prints like this with faded or uneven print,

slamfix_20.jpg The problem is with the developer in the imaging unit. The problem can be fixed by either replacing the imaging unit for $100+ or you can fix it yourself by cleaning the imaging unit. You will need simple hand tools and if you are careful restore the print quality of your printer.

Go to printer properties and check whether you have selected print in grey mode and also check whether you have selected the economic mode. Rectify the same will solve your problem.
