My samsung clx 3160fn prints with a faded streak in the center of the paper

There is some-thing that is dirty that is making contact with the paper.

My guess is a roller or a little metal guide wheel or the like.

Clean it with tissue paper.

Use the already printed page to line up to see where about the source of the line is comming from.

Till next time!

I have a samsung clx-3160fn printer. All toners are ok, espcecially the black one - BUT when I print black&white doc, it is comign out really faded - as if the black toner is low. BUT it is not!! Can...

Try printing the demo page, there's a man on there with a black tuxedo. If you see snowflakes on the black suit, you need a new hi voltage power supply circuit board. Also most of the generic toners don't work well in this machine.

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.

Poor Printing Quality

The last time I saw that I had to replace the HV power supply and prints went back to normal...If it's out of warranty it'll cost around $150.00

Samsung CLX-3160FN Vertical lines when printing black

This is a very common problem with Samsung CLX-3160 and CLP-300 printers. The real problem is that the developer blades get dirty with the toner. Buying a new imaging unit will only fix the problem for a short period of time then it starts to get buildup on the developer blades.

You need to clean the developer blades. If there are streaking on any color, then also needs to be cleaned.

To clean the developer blades, look to this link. It describes how to clean them. It only takes a few minutes to do once you get the developers out of the unit. Just be careful when you clean the edge of the blades. You need to make sure that the residue is completely removed from the edge. Also be sure that when you reinstall the blade that the little foam does not get trapped below the blade. Otherwise when you print the side where the blade is not properly installed will have too much color.

If you are afraid of messing your printer up, then you need to buy a new imaging unit. They go around $100.
