The lock is on the underside of the scanner deck, you can see it through the glass.  Reach underneath and slide to unlock.

Samsung clx-3160fn won't print


Usually I've seen that happen when you use generic toners. There are 4 toner clutches down the right side, with the right cover off you can see which clutch is doing the grinding. Many of the generics are overfilled and hard to turn and will make the noise until you loosen them by hand turning them til they loosen up, or just replacing.

The lock is a slide switch next to the large glass when you open the top cover, when it is locked the scanner can't move and makes a grinding noise. It's easy to bump into the locked position and easy to unlock.

When you changed the toner did you change the chip for them? you need a special chip for each and evry one of them. I had that problem with my CLX-2160 and i fixed it this way.

Samsung CLX-3160FN prints and copies fine but can't scan


This may be obvious, but there's a "scanner lock" on this machine. It ships locked, and you need to unlock it when you receive it. Look up under where the paper comes out when you print, and on the left there's a little green switch. Make sure it's pulled towards you (you can see it also through the glass on the scanner bed).
