Question about Samsung CLX 3160fn All-In-One Printer
You almost certainly need to replace the drum, which runs about $95 and is guaranteed for a year. It's considered a consumable, just as the toner is, but so far I've only found them online...I've been told by Office Depot that the drums that come with the machines aren't of as good a quality (and don't last as long) as the one you'll buy after that

This is a very common problem with the Samsung clx-3160 and clp-300. Buying a new drum will fix it, until the developer blades get dirty.
If your printer looks like this:
Then you need to clean the developer blades. In the image above it is the black blade that need to be cleaned. If there are streaking on any other color, then 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.
