This is a very common problem with Samsung CLX-3160 and CLP-300 printers. The real problem is that the developer blades get dirty with the toner. Buying a new imaging unit will only fix the problem for a short period of time then it starts to get buildup on the developer blades.
You need to clean the developer blades. If there are streaking on any color, then also needs to be cleaned.
To clean the developer blades, look to this link. http://losingambition.com/clp300imagefix/ It describes how to clean them. It only takes a few minutes to do once you get the developers out of the unit. Just be careful when you clean the edge of the blades. You need to make sure that the residue is completely removed from the edge. Also be sure that when you reinstall the blade that the little foam does not get trapped below the blade. Otherwise when you print the side where the blade is not properly installed will have too much color.
If you are afraid of messing your printer up, then you need to buy a new imaging unit. They go around $100.

Perform a head cleaning by opening up your printer in "Devices and Printers." Click on the start menu, and then click on the "Devices and Printers" option located in the bottom right corner of the start menu panel. Right-click on the printer that is giving you trouble to bring up the printer properties.
Click "Troubleshoot" on the pop-up menu to start up Windows automatic troubleshooting. The troubleshooting program wizard will run and ask you a couple of questions about your problem. Complete the troubleshooter, and then print another page and check it to see if any lines appear.
Check your task bar for any printing software that will show you the ink levels. Check the indicators on the printer as well to make sure the ink isn't running low. If the ink is running low, replace the ink cartridges based on the user manual provided with the printer.
Clean the print head of the cartridge by removing the ink cartridge and taking a corner of the cloth and dabbing it in alcohol. Run the cloth over the ink deposit point found in the lower bottom region of the print cartridge. Allow the cartridge to air dry before reinserting it into the printer.
Check the printer for any paper jams, and run a nozzle check and cleaning from the printer. The printer has menu buttons and features with which you can manually perform much of the maintenance that is required to keep it running at top-notch levels.

Hi Harish and others,
I didn't see all of the thread but:
I have a clx3175fw which for now 3 months only have printed with smears, lines, and ghost-images from preceeding pages.
shortly before trashing the printer because just getting a quote on fixing the printer in shipping whould be close to usd 150. Actual fixing price would probably be higher. If it hadn't been for the fact that I have a stash of toner and the usual consumables for the next 5 years of private use I would have trashed the printer!
BUT: a guy called Michael Ionita (Austrian I think) posted this fix which I finally found via google. And it just worked like a charm. I think it took me less than 8 minutes to fix the printer. And now I know the drill I'd be able to do it en 3 minutes next time. My only comment to his instructions is as follows: where he states "Use a small white paper and try to stick it into the top - like shown": make sure you follow the angle of the glossy plastic from the back of the printer and upwards - AND: "trying" is not enough, you have to push it firmly to squeeze it up to where the toner residuance should be removed. No violance needed - just try harder until you see the paper is picking up toner - and you should be home free.
Br, Jens K from Copenhagen.

I have the same issue. It would be great if someone had an idea how to address, as Samsung has no idea.
