Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

The CLX-2160 printer says Outbin Full even though I have made sure there are no paper jams, have tried using the manual feeder and only had 5 pages in the intray. Que? Is there a sensor somewhere that would be defective? Is it worth repairing, the thing only cost $200? Someone suggested I remove the paper tray, open and close the front cover, power down. Turn back on, fan the paper. Did not work.

Hi,
This error is due to more number of papers present in the output bin tray which were all not removed after printing. Removing papers from Intray will not help to solve this problem. This is because of paper present in Out Bin Tray without removing after being printed. If there is no paper left in out-Bin and still the error is displayed, then find some knob link thing which presents near out-bin to detect the paper level being printed and reset in manually. Refer below diagram to know about the approximate location of such know/sensor.

If still the problem persists,
then remove the printer toner and fix it back. Similarly do once for all the removable parts present in the printer.

How do I use my printer as a duplex for making copies on both sides? Thanks Roxanne


The printer does not support duplex coping. If you want to do manual duplex copying, you can make a copy of the first page.
Then reinsert the paper upside down in the manual tray or paper tray, fil the page on the document feeder and make the back copy.

I have a paperjam on my colour laser printer CLX 3170 and I dont know how to get to the paperjam inside the machine


Step 1
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
Step 2
Turn off the printer.
Step 3
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Step 4
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
Step 5
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
Step 6
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
Step 7
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though.
Step 8
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
Step 9
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Inspect the paper path once again.

Samsung clx-2160 says waste tank is full. What must I do and where is the waste tank?


If you open the front of the printer then you will find a waste tank in the left side - its gray. Take it out and empty it, and put the tank back in place.
This works for Samsung CLX-2160

CLX 2160 - paperjam


There is probably a jam in the paper feed area. Pull the paper tray out and stick your hand in to find and remove any paper stuck there. Then reinstall the paper tray and open and close the front door of the printer. The jam should be cleared.

If it is still showing paper jam, pull the tray out again and look to make sure you didn't miss any paper, then check the other areas of the printer (starting with the exit area) for paper.

CLX-2160N does not correctly pick up paper from


Hi
If it is new then you should return it for the guaranty if not...
It is a common failure in printers, mostly laser printers which are used more frequently! there is a part underneath the paper feeder roler/drum, which is like sand paper. It stops excessive paper to be dragged in by the feeder, using friction! By the time, this part gets worn out resulting in more papers to be fed by the feeder! you could get the part from a replacement-parts dealer of your printer brand or try to fix it yourself ;)
I myself tried to make it less slippery by scratching it with a nife and/or a screw driver, with temporary positive result. I think you could glue a bit of sandpaper on it which should hold a bit longer!

clean the pickup roller that feeds the main tray.
This is an ongoing problem with this printer, even in the single function printers.
