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

CLX-3160FN black ink problem

The black ink on my laser CLX3160FN is so light I can barely see it. It keeps getting worse. I have replaced the ink cartridge and nothing changes (even with a brand new one, or after 10-15 uses of a brand new one). It is not accidentally set to draft mode. It IS in normal mode. No message about transfer belt so I can't imagine what the problem is. Printer is fairly new.

My pages are printing correctly on the edges but light in the middle on my clx 3160fn. it has a new black ink cartridge


Is it only with one colour ? I had the same problem (only with black) and before buying another unit dismantled the imaging unit to find a build up of toner on the metering plate edge, I cleaned it and now it's fine.
It takes a bit to get to... 3 fixing screws each side plus one for the belt shute and one at the top. Remove the side plates, followed by the image drum (with great care) then each colour toner roller unit (they just slide forward) until the black unit is exposed. Remove the 5 cover fixings and then you can clean the plate edge. kh
