Question about Samsung CLX-3160 All-In-One Laser Printer
Dev. Home error can be fixed by stretching out a solenoid spring on the
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.

This will usually solve the problem.
Open the front door, take out the Drum / Toner cartridge assembly. Blow with air on the left side and right side to blow out the toner. do not have the air to close to the unit so that liquid sprays out, and as much as possible, avoid the drum. Then rotate all the black gears, 2 full rotations as possible. The drum gear will be the hardest.
This should solve the problem.
