Question about Samsung CLX 3160fn All-In-One Printer
How do I access the underside of the samsung clx 3160fn color laser all in one scanner bed glass to clean it. It is fogged, I expect due to just heavy use.
Start by taking the back cover off. Then the 2 side covers, being careful not to break the speaker wires.
There will be 2 screws holding the sanner into the machine, you need to remove them. Carefully disconnect the ribbon cable, remove the ground screw, and all the connectors to the scanner and document feeder. It will have to be popped backward to unlatch it from the frame.
Remove the document feeder, take notice how you remove the wires so you can route them properly when reassemling.
Remove the screws holding the control consol and the scanner together.
There also will be some plastic tabs holding it snapped together. Seperate the glass frame from the remainder of the scanner.
disasseble the scanner head carefully being cautious not to break the lamps so you can clean the mirrors. Then clean the underside of the glass.
Then in reerse order, taking your time, reasseble the machine. Make sure to route the wires properly and carefully.
A bit time consuming, but the scanner must be removed and disassembled to clean it.
