    Even when I pull the lock to the right, the fuser does not come out. How much force can I use?

After you remove the 4 screws, there is a plastic bar on the left side. Grab the end of the bar and slide it inward. That should allow you to pull out the fuser. Hope this helps you.

I have a Samsung CLX-3160FN, and after every page


it is most likely that the fuser actuater arm is not sitting back to the sensor properly. open the back door you will be able to see the fuser, on your right hand side you should be able to see a fliper that sit in between a sensor. try to adjust the fliper flag and see if it works.

if it still continue to give you the same error. try remove the fuser four screw 2 side on each. adjust the flag again and fix it back. it should work and double check for any lose small pices of paper jam in the printer.

My samsung CLX-3160 says "paper jam" and yet there is no paper jam

Open the back door, and inside at the top above the fuser there is a cover that will lift up. In front of the cover will be a spike.

Life the cover, and let the spike (a paper sensor) go into place under the cover and replace the cover and close the door, and it should work.

The spike is lifted as paper passes through.

If you ever lifted the spike while the cover was open and then closed the cover, the spike can't get back so is always lifted and it thinks there is always paper

Nec 860 laser printer fuser unit

remove cartridge and leave top door open, then remove two screws in back ; open front sheet panel to find two screws to remove then remove outer case carefully AND PLACE ON LEFT SIDE BECAUSE THERE'S A RIBBON WIRE ATTACHED.
there are 4 screws holding the fuser unit in place, remove AND LIFT OUT BY ROLLING TOWARD YOU to reveal 2 screws to access the red roller assembly!
In my case there was a very tightly wound piece of paper stuck in there not visable without removing the screws on the fuser unit!
