Open te lid and look at the glass. You have dirt or white-out or something on the thin strip of glass to the left. Clean that glass!

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.

9 times out of 10 this is coming from one of the two drum (photoconductor) units. Just open the right side door, release the waste toner box, and remove the 2 drum units. The larger one is the color drum unit and the smaller one is the black. Look down thru the slot in the top of the unit (3 slots in the color drum) and look at the green colored drum surface. On one end or the other you should be able to see the same lines on the drum surface that you are seeing on the paper. One of the 2 drum units should have the lines and that will tell you which one will need to be replaced. Hopefully it will be the black drum unit as they are relatively cheap. The color ones are $350 to $400
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have just now, taken the waste toner bin out, squirted in some hand soap and water. Shook vigorously and rinsed it out. the CLX-3175 is working a treat again !
