Re: Samsung 3160fn

This is a multifunctional unit: it copies, prints, faxes and scans. There are three green buttons listed as "FAX", "COPY" and "SCAN". You need to press COPY if you want to make copies, since the default setting is FAX. The user's manual contained in the CD will show you how to change the default setting to COPY.

My CLX-3160FN printer will no longer print. It says to replace imaging unit soon (up until it stopped printing it was working fine, no problems on scans, copies, faxes, prints) but only recently it...

You will need to replace the imaging unit. It the part where the toner cartridges and waste toner tank sits. The part number is CLP-R300A. You can find it online or at your local office supply store.

Fax interrupts phone call

1. Make sure your [RINGS TO ANSWER] settings are more than the same settings for your answering machine.
2. If someone tries to make a copy while the phone line is in use, they need to press number 1, as if telling the unit that they want one copy. If not, the unit will think you are trying to receive a fax and will interrupt the communication.

Be blessed.

Nope. I've tried everything. Feel lucky that yours doesn't jam 9 of 10 tries when copying (among other things). I'm going to take a baseball bat to mine.

Ready Memory Received

Dear guys, your toner cartridge is low and as a preventive measure, the unit stores the faxes in order to give priority to copying and printing. If you are using remanufactured cartridges, the unit might not be displaying the low toner warning.

Samsung CLX-3160FN prints and copies fine but can't scan

This may be obvious, but there's a "scanner lock" on this machine. It ships locked, and you need to unlock it when you receive it. Look up under where the paper comes out when you print, and on the left there's a little green switch. Make sure it's pulled towards you (you can see it also through the glass on the scanner bed).
