Question about Samsung CLX 3160fn All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Samsung CLX-3160FN "DEVE HOME SENSOR ERROR"

Following the instruction manual, I unplugged the printer, and turned it back on. It worked for a few hours. Now the same error is back and turning on an off does not help. I also removed the imaging unit and transfer unit and re-seated both, thinking that would help. I have read many on-line posts with different solutions. No one seems to have the definitive answer! Will I need a new imaging unit or transfer belt? I replaced these within the last 6 months. The folks at Samsung are useless and I am beginning to hate this printer more every day! Any suggestions that REALLY WORK?

    Thanks for the advice. We will attempt to clean the inside, but do you know exactly WHERE the DEVE HOME SENSOR is so we can make sure that it is cleaned as well?

    The advice was helpful, but it did not fix the problem. Looks like I may need to purchase some new parts -- AGAIN.

To start the printer must be cleaned internally, as dirt may cause the Deve Home sensor malfunction.

If that does not work, in that case a Deve Home sensor may be faulty. In this case Samsung suggest that there is a problem with the fuser unit and they say to call support.

As far as I know Deve Home sensor is often caused by toner contamination and dirt inside the printer.

Non-working printer; no paper pickup


The solution shown for the Samsung CLX-3160FN All-In-One works also for the Samsung CLX-2160N.
The associated picture and methodology of "pre-stretching" the solenoid spring is virtually identical for both printers.
Worked for me on the CLX-2160N

if the printer is flashing developer home then the developer unit is not situated correctly or the contacts are dirty causing the printer to not recognize the dev unit clean the contacts with denatured alcohol on the dev unit and where it makes contact within the printer and power back up.
failing that the dev unit may have expired requiring a new one to be installed.

DEVE Home Sensor Error


Dev. Home error can be fixed by stretching out a solenoid spring on the power cord side of the printer. The solenoid acts as a clutch to stop the spinning developer actuator at the right spot.

The problem is that the spring gets weak over time / the cogs round out over time and the solenoid finger is overcome by the spinning cogs, and resulting in selecting the wrong developer.

Open up the right side (power cord side) of the printer (take off top cover, then take off side cover). Then, find a solenoid (little metal square) that touches the white plastic vertical spur gear. Take the spring off the solenoid. Now, put the spring back on - only this time you will attach one anchor point to the middle of the spring as to pre-stretch the spring for more tension.

Deve Home sensor Error as occur cannot get printer to work


The web does not offer alot on this error. However the users manual indicates it is a fuser issue. Try a new maintenance kit. That should include the fuser and all rollers.
