Samsung CLX-3160 Change transfere belt

I got this message: "Change transfere belt soon" while the printer still works fine.
In my stupidness I order a nnew one and change it. Nothing happens, and a telefhone to supplier solved it: Do'nt change it befor the message "Change transfere belt now", so I rearranged back to the nearly wasted belt.
Some weeks after I got the real message to change, and gently reinserted the new one which I tried weeks ago.
But what happend? The mesage will not disappear and the printer wo'nt print. Monky-trap! Someone now a way to reset the counter?

I got a way to reset the transfer belt counter:
Just press Meny.button, then #{4-digit-password-number}# and follow this path:
Techmode - DataSetup - Clear counts - Transfer belt Passord={4-digit-password-number}

The brackets should not be entered, only 4 digit.

Hello - I have a CLX 3160 printer. The black imaging film above the imaging unit seems to have ripped in one place. Is this fixable please?

It is the transfer belt. I don't think there is a supplier of just the belt itself. You must replace the transfer belt assembly. The part number is JC96-03611A.

I have a samsung clx-3160 fn printer, approx 1.5 yrs old. Has worked well, however now the right side of each page is slightly faded compared to the left side. I have cleaned out what I can and replaced...

I'm not sure if it is a similar problem but I have a CLX-3170FN and it has started to run a strange line down the page, and part of the page was smudged. I cleaned it all out and looked at the drum etc and it was all fine. Then I spotted there is a plastic belt that must run like a conveyor belt behind the drum and there is a split running along it - Found out it is called the transfer belt. It was difficult to see which I why I am suggesting it to you. Now I just have to find how I can replace mine. :)

I have a line going down the center of the paper

Hi, I have a CLX-3170FN and it has a line down the centre. I've looked, cleaned everything out etc. I found a plastic belt running like a conveyor belt behind the drum, it has a split running down it which lines up with the line on the page. Not sure if it is replaceable but apparently it is called a transfer belt. Hope this helps others.

My samsung clx-3160 colour laser printer does not print very well.all prints are barely neglible and now most times no print or characters appear.I have installed new ink cartridges.Please advise.

If the problem is only with Black output you need to change the Black developer of the Imaging Unit, Else you need to refer to the Authorised Service center. Else you may change the complete imaging unit by yourself.

We have the samsung clx 3160 fn laser printer and the ink is really low and needs to be refilled. Is this something that we need to have a tech service it or can we do it ourselves, also how do we change...

You can buy toner cartridges to this machine and fix the problem yourselves. Go to any office supply store and they will have toner cartridges for the Samsung clx 3160. The display will flash the name fo the cartridge color that needs to be replaced. Just open the front door of the machine, pull out the empty cartridges and pop in the new ones.
