Samsung model clx-2160. Produces accurate colour for one third of copy, then remainder comes out in just red and blue. Have tried new yellow toner, cleaning etc.., updated software, but to no avail.

It sounds as though you may have to replace the Image Transfer Unit.

    Hello, In case needed, I found the user manual for your device:

    There are instructions, again if necessary, for replacing your ITU.

    I hope this helps better solve your issue.
    Thank you.

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.

My Samsung CLX-3160FN has stopped printing colour. I have changed all the cartridges and it will copy in colour, but prints in black and white.


You need to check your document print settings on your PC. Drill through the printer properties menu until you get to the colour settings. At a guess you currently have it set to "Greyscale" rather than colour or auto.

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.

When you changed the toner did you change the chip for them? you need a special chip for each and evry one of them. I had that problem with my CLX-2160 and i fixed it this way.
