Under warranty ring samsung to confirm, the error relates to comunication with the ram chip, probally not seated, but I think you might find in has a "in house" warranty which means they will come to you.

SPL-C ERROR with Samsung CLX-3160 FN when printing from iMac

This 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 picture below is from a Samsung CLP-300 but these both use the same Imaging Unit so this should work. It's just a little more involved taking off the top scanner / buttonpad off the CLX-3160.

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.

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.

CLX 3160 waste toner tank error message

Empting the waste toner tank does not always fix this problem. Samsung shines a light through the tank with a photo receptor on the other side. If it the photo receptor does not see enough light, it will trigger the replace waste tank message.
You can fix this by trying to clean the clear window portion of the tank with a q-tip. This is difficult to do since there are parts of this window which is hard to clean with a q-tip.
Or you could wash it out with soapy water until the window is clear of toner. Allow the tank to dry and reinstall.

Internal DRAM Error

this is a ram memory error. Printers have built in memory for basic graphics which is located on the main circuit board and is not replaceable. Also there should be a small compartment located on the back about the size of a business card. If you locate this compartment, you may try removing the memory that is in there and print. It will cut down on your graphic ability but may solve the error message.

We have the samsung clx 3160 fn laser printer and the ink is really low and needs to be refilled. Is this something that we need to have a tech service it or can we do it ourselves, also how do we change...

You can buy toner cartridges to this machine and fix the problem yourselves. Go to any office supply store and they will have toner cartridges for the Samsung clx 3160. The display will flash the name fo the cartridge color that needs to be replaced. Just open the front door of the machine, pull out the empty cartridges and pop in the new ones.
