Re: low heat error

My 3175FW has same problem. None of the quick fixes worked. I took it to a service company. They tried a fuser unit, but that didn't fix it. Their estimate is that the printer needs a new power supply -- $300 before labor. Not worth it. Can't believe I spent that much money for a top quality printer (so I thought) and it lasted less than 2 years. Never again, Samsung.

My Samsung CLX-2160N is telling me it has a "Low Heat Error, Cycle Power" ... but when I cycle the power it does not fix the issue. What can I do to fix this? John

I do believe that the low heat error is talking about having low heat at the paper fuser (the part of the printer that makes the writing stick to the paper). This can either be caused by a bad fuser or by a bad controller board that is connected to the fuser. There is not much that you the user can do to fix this problem. I would take the printer to an authorized repair center in your area.
