    Mine was a bad transfer belt. Although it was new and I had reset the printer, I kept getting the error message. I finally bought a new belt - presto - it was gone!

    1. Open side where toner is all the way, then press button on top to open the top

    You must clean the sensor and a clear window in the belt that runs under the sensor. Open the side toner door all the way, then push button on top to open the top (CLP-550 and CLP-550N). The transfer belt is on top with the green handle. Flip the blue and green levers and pull it out. Underneath is a plastic bar that runs across it secured by 4 screws - remove it. You will see a small black bar (<1 in.) on the side with the blue plastic. That is the sensor. If you rotate the belt via the gears, you will see a small clear window appear which goes under the sensor. Gently depress the belt and clean the underside of the sensor and also clean both sides of the window.

Helped me and solved the lever and transfer belt. Actually it is the combined black toner cartridge and transfer belt. The side plate is about 3 inches long and has the two screws fixing it on. The sensor has a single screw fixing it, but in fact just looks like a black cover plate. Lever it out easilly at the screw end, not the other end which is impossible.

I just blew out the **** in the sensor, wiggled the white 3 pin connector, and since it has the look of a reflection based optical sensor, then I cleaned the belt along its edge with antistatic cleaner , ie tissue paper soaked and rotate the gear to move the belt round. There is a silver patch on the belt which passes the sensor once every revolution of the belt, and I gave this a particularly good clean as it is probably the only bit that matters.

Anyway, several black refills (hole and a bit of tape sealing it) later and the unit still works fine. Actually I always refill everything and just high pressure blow off the whole printer every so ofter.

I saw this posted somewhere on the internet and it worked for me.

Take out the transfer unit and look at the bottom. One side has visible wires. Open the side panel on that side. Follow the 3 wires to a C shaped sensor held in with a screw. Remove the sensor and blow canned air in the slots on the inside of the C. Put it all back together and hope for the best.

The transfer belt is a consumable, just like the toners. The only way to clear the error is by installing a new one. Be advised: as with ALL color laser printers, your unit will soon ask for a drum, waste toner bottle and fuser unit replacement.

The two solutions below by Student 2 and Brendan 54 worked for me.
I have been struggling with this transfer belt/ lever locking error for months. At first, switching machine off opening the cover, and re-switching on worked, but a great pain in the neck. Finally, nothing would get the errors to go away so I could use the printer until I found this site and the two solutions (solutions 1 & 2). Great stuff ! Many thanks chaps. I used a can of compressed air ("Air Duster") to blow out the sensors, and I cleaned the small square transparent patch on the edge of the transfer belt (which the sensor detects) with a soft cloth. I needed to bend a paperclip with a piece of cloth wrapped around it to clean the inside of the transparent patch.

My transfer belt produces loud sound ,,how can i fix it ??

Posted on Aug 19, 2008

You need to reset the printer after installing a new transfer belt. The instructions for this are in your printer manual and on the instruction sheet that came with the new transfer belt. i.e. Menu/maitenance/check others/transfer belt/reset.

The "Transfer Belt" error shows up after the printer has printed 60,000 pages. At which time the belt needs to be replaced.

You can try resetting the count, which may clear the message:

1. Enter Service Mode by pressing [MENU] [#] [1] [9] [3] [4]2.
If you do not see the Tech Mode menu press the menu button again. (You need to enter the key sequence quickly.)
3. Select Tech Menu
4. Select DataSetup
5. Arrow to Clear Counts and press Enter6. Enter Password 19347. Arrow to Transfer Belt and press Enter.
The display will show Clearing Counts and then return you to the Tech Menu. Press exit several times to exit the Tech Menu and then power cycle the printer.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

I was getting a message that the transfer belt needed to be replaced and I replaced it. But the message won't go away.


try this:

1. Press # sign; then 1934
2. Press MENU
3. Arrow to Tech Mode (not User Mode); press OK
4. DataSetup; move arrow to Clear All Memory
5. Clear All Memory; press OK
6. Choose coonutry; press OK; will erase and print out configuration report; clearing the transfer belt error.

This wipes out the counter on the Transfer Belt. Clear All Memory means all your settings are wiped out. This also reset all the counters EXCEPT the imaging unit counter.

Trust this helps. Please vote.

Put back together.. good luck -Carl

this is an error for the transfer belt there is a mark or the belt has been damaged if you open up th efront cover and then look at the brown panel there are two screws either end that nee to be loosened then lift this up next there is two screws on the transfer unit that run diagonally acros the inside of the machine and a third screw on the black unit (duplex) unit this needs to be taken out.. once you have done this there is a green lever in the top left hand side of the transfer unit this needs to be turned to the left to release the roller take the black duplex unit out by sliding it to the fron then the treansfer unit can be pulled gently out.. it is on two runners so it wont fall off you can hten look at the condition of the belt. if it seems ok look on the edges of the belt by gently turning the gear at the back this will feed the belt around.. if it seems ok put it all back in and then put the srews back in close it up and turn on the machine.. wait for it to warm up.. press the yellow clear/cancel button at the top above the number pad then enter 107 then hold down the cnacel/stop button, hold this down till the screen changes.. turn off the machine and bcak on again.. if the reset has worked the machine should run up and be able to copy and print.. if not you will have to do the same proceedure of clear/cancel button routine and once the screen changes select copy sp then go to section 5.mode then scroll down to 810 sc reset. execute and turn off the machine.. wait 5 secs turn on and test again.. if the error code keeps coming back the B.I.C.U Board may be defective and need to be replaced. check the transfer unit condition of the rollers under the plastic clear image belt also.. Good luck A.

Re Samsung CLX-3160FN & Transfer Belt Error


Take out the Imaging unit ,transfer belt and fix it properly.
Also take care that you will keep the printer on even surface.

IF nothing is solving the problem then you need to replace the transfer belt as a final solution.

"Lever Unlocking Error" Message


Probably a bad connection between the transfer belt contacts and those inside the machine - clean any dirt/toner off them and make sure they aren't bent out of position and try again.

Transbelt is a part replacement-plain and simple. Samsung sucks for this, they give you no warning and just shut down the printer. www.samsungparts.com

Phaser 6100 - lever unlocking error


This printer is same as Samsung CLP-500. So the problem is the same: Contaminated transfer belt sensor.

Do as follow:
Lift transfer belt assy from printer(Drop down back door 90 degree, press white button, lift top cover and release 2 locking levers, grab handle, pull the belt unit out), turn upside down & rotate plastic roller until small clear "window" appears along one edge of belt. Clean both sides of clear window with cotton bud. on same side as window, remove 2 screws securing flimsy plastic cover to gain acess to sensor, (follow red/black wires)remove a screw and pull out "U" shaped sensor(light transmiter and receiver), cotton bud and blow away dust on slits on inner surfaces of sensor. Reassamble and everything should be ok.If not, senser may be too contaminated, clean slits vigorousley with cotton bud, or maybe you just need a new sensor.

The theory is that printer detect transfer belt by transmit light through the clear "window". If either window not clear or sensor is contaminated, light will not reach the receriver part of the sensor, printer will report such errors.

Good luck.
