If Samsung is anything like Lexmark, then forget it. Image Count is a variable buried in what they call NPAP. This is a communication player and therefore is not something companies will help you manipulate.

It is a major concern because not only does image count get used by the "Toner Life" and "ITU Life" but it is also a warranty claim number.

For example if you were to call Samsung and tell them that you have a printer with an Image Replacement failure and your page count is 50, then they are looking at a clear out of box failure so to speak.

If the count is say 50K, then they may say its a supply item and you need to replace it or call a service technician to have it replaced.

It really depends on how the printer logic is built. On some of the printers I've played with there were two variable locations for page count. One was the total and the other was the current.

Regardless, NPAP is not something to play with. You can fry the poor things brains rather quickly.

The only way to reset it it to buy OEM Cartridges because it only letsyou use the starter tanks once, after that they must have chips.

Other way HERE

Hope helped with this.

My samsung CLP-670ND is printing 4 separate images (one of each colour) offset by approximately 2mm.


It sounds like the image stabilization/calibration has not been completed properly, remove 3 print cartridges ( any) switch unit back on and wait for display to ask for other cartridges, - insert when asked and allow the machine to complete the calibration, alternatively use the menu function and look for image stabilization under diagnostics and activate.

If your printer prints like this with faded or uneven print,

slamfix_20.jpg The problem is with the developer in the imaging unit. The problem can be fixed by either replacing the imaging unit for $100+ or you can fix it yourself by cleaning the imaging unit. You will need simple hand tools and if you are careful restore the print quality of your printer.

Printing in black is not the same shade through out the paper


This is a very common problem with the Samsung CLP 300 and CLX 3160 printers. What happens is that the toner or developer blades become coated with toner. The developer blades meter the amount of toner that the printer uses to make the image on the paper. When the blade become blocked, the image become faint. To fix this problem, you and either replace the imaging unit for about $100 or you can clean the blades yourself. I have posted instructions how to clean them on my Tips section.

My samsung clx-3160 colour laser printer does not print very well.all prints are barely neglible and now most times no print or characters appear.I have installed new ink cartridges.Please advise.


If the problem is only with Black output you need to change the Black developer of the Imaging Unit, Else you need to refer to the Authorised Service center. Else you may change the complete imaging unit by yourself.

There is an "opto coupler" in the main drive gear unit (right ride of machine) which controls the drive to the toner/dev units. If this (or part of the drive) is faulty it will give this error.

Double printing in my samsung 3160 fn


Double printing, such as second "ghost" image has nothing to do with cleaning, but with the drum unit. Print out the System Data Report (Press [MENU] until "System Configuration", then right arrow until "Reports", press [ENTER] and then right arrow until "System Data". Press [ENTER] twice to confirm.

With the report on hand, check the total color prints. If they are near 12,000 pages, change the drum. Be advised, the Image Unit (drum) is an expensive consumable. Part number is CLP-300A.

Be blessed.
