Question about Samsung ML 1610 Laser Printer
Pull out the toner cartridge. Carefully put your fingers into the opening just beyond the chrome roller. A little to the left of center you will fell/see a small black plastic finger which sticks up. It should be loose - push it forward and it springs forward, release it and it returns to the original position. If your paper jam catches this finger it can become jammed and will feel rigid. Put light pressure on it either pushing to the back or pulling forward until it becomes free again. Replace the toner cartridge, close the cover and your red light should go out.
It worked for me - hope it helps someone else.

There could be three possible problems.
1. Is there paper in the paper tray? If yes then move to step 2.
2. Did u try the above solution and still have the red light? move to step 3
3. The Toner Cartridge is NOT fixed right. You have to take out the toner cartridge and push it in till it CLICKS. It has to make a distinct clicking sound. Turn on the printer again and voila u r good to go.

Had same issue and then tried the following for fun. In my case, the problems started after a jam. - Turn off printer - Press the CANCEL button and hold - Turn on power with CANCEL button help down until the printer lights start to flash. Hold for another 5-10 seconds - Let go of the CANCEL button - Power printer off and on again Worked for me but I'm not sure why. Perhaps the above process resets something. Strange though because you'd think unplugging the printer would have 'cleaned out' any leftover errors from a previous print. Wayne

The online/error light is always red, and I can't print. I turn the printer off, change the toner and the light is still red, what can I do
