Question about Samsung CLX-3160 All-In-One Laser Printer
Samsung CLX-3160FN, I have just purchased this printer from the states, but you guessed it plugges it in here!! Therefore I believe that I have Blown Power Supply put 240V instead of 110V. Purchased a converter, but went fot 45W one as this was cheapest, there is no Watt information on the printer. However this did not work. I have several clp 300 and 315 samsung laser printers, Is it easy to swap over the power supply from one of these printers, or do you know of any printer repairers that would convert/fix my printer.
As per your description you have plugged the printer into 240V power supply instead of 110V as this printer is purchased from US due to which the blown the power supply.
Check the fuse and replace the same if required. Still you are facing the problem, then need to repair/replace the power supply unit for the printer with the help from expert enginner or Service center experts.
Revert back for more assistance.

FYI, laser printers can consume up to 1000W when operating. Your printer is rated at 350W average.
Actually, you might have blown more than just the power supply - many printers have the fuser unit operating directly from the mains voltage for example.
And no, it won't be easy to swap a power supply - your unit has many additional features compared to a typical printer, so the power supply will be different for sure.
An electronics technician should assess the damage and inform you whether a repair would be feasible.
