    Yeah have tried that thanks. went through the manual which suggested taking out the imaging unit. It was pretty clean behind there anyway. Waste toner bottle seems ok. The only thing the manual suggested other than cleaning the area behind the imaging unit was trying a better quality paper and replacing toner. The colour toners have hardly being used. I don't want to spend $70 per toner to find out it does not fix the issue. I could try replacing one of them and print out in that colour though.

Please try to take out the imaging unit. Clean the area.
Donot touch with fingers. You ma use tissue paper. It may be due to spillage of toner during transportation etc.

The problem I have with my Samsung CLX-2160 is that it is only the blue which is not printing evenly - it fades out across the page. The others colours + black are all printing fine & evenly. Any...

you'll need to get to the transfer rollers and de-magnetize them. There should be a "Corona wire" that you can slide from one end of the transfer roller all the way to the other. On the other hand, you may be facing a clog in the blue toner channels, so a thorough cleanup of the entire assembly should help. Or, make a full-blue A4/letter sized document and print it out. Maybe the large amount of blue toner can de-clog the channels. Also, keep the old blue toner if it's not empty because this is not a toner issue.

Colour problem with printer

After you scan it, do you immediately print it in an image format or do you use word? If you use word i might have a tip that might help.

Before printing, click File>print>click on "Properties" and check that the grayscale printing box isn't marked, if it is unmark it and it'll print in colour.

Also anything is that, when you're scanning. After previewing your scanned piece, double check the mode, either magazine (which is in colour), Black and white or outline (i think)

That's all i have for now.
