Re Samsung CLX-3160FN & Transfer Belt Error

I had the transfer belt error and tried BFixed's solution posted 17 Mar 2008 -- it seemed to be ok, the green status light came on, but when I tried to photocopy a document I got a different error message, this time "scanner error" and the status light has turned red. The scanner error message has gone and it just reads the normal text for dialling a fax number. I had the same transfer belt error message about 6 months ago and it fixed no problem with BFixed's solution.
Any other ideas/solutions?

    Hi Rafique,
    Thank you for posting.
    What do you mean by "fix it properly' for the imaging unit and transfer belt? I am happy to try, but need more specific guidance! (I am NOT very tech-savvy, but do follow instructions well!!!)
    I can still do regular printing, but was just on the point of taking the printer in to an authorized shop to deal with it while on vacation next week.
    Thanks for any help.

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.

Have a transfer belt error What to do?


To fix this error, you will need to replace the transfer belt and/or reset the transfer belt count on your printer. If you are happy the the print quality of the printer, then you can try to reset the transfer belt count and that will clear the error. Otherwise you need to get a replacement transfer belt and swap it out before resetting the count.

To remove your existing transfer belt, you need to open the front panel, and remove the imaging unit by pulling the green handle. The belt is located above the imaging unit. Pull the belt down to release and then pull it straight out of the machine. Take your new belt and slide the back into the machine and push the front of the belt up to lock in place. Then you need to reset the belt count.

To do this, follow the steps below.

1. Enter Tech 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 OK
6. Enter Password 1934
7. Arrow to Transfer Belt and press OK.

Hope this helps you.

Transfer belt error samsung CLX-2160 help


The first thing to try is to turn the printer off, unplug it from the wall, then plug it back in and turn it on. If the error message goes away, you can resume normal operation. If the error message still appears, you'll have to call your service technician.

TRANSFER BELT ERROR


This error indicates that there is a problem with the transfer belt. Either it has failed, reached end of life ( it is a consumable item, just like toner, and needs to be replaced on occasion ), or just is not correctly installed.

Try reseating it first. Remove the imaging drum unit ( the housing that holds the 4 toners ). The transfer belt is the unit behind the drum that is inserted along the top edge of the drum cavity.
it can be a little tricky to get it in there correcty. Kind of hold it up against the top of the cavity as you slide it back towards its holder.

Rather than turn printer off, unplug from power source, wait a few minutes and plug back in. It's worked twice for me so far...
