    We have a Samsung CLX 3160FN ...we first had to replace the imaging unit and then later the transfer belt. After replacing the transfer belt, the copier would not recognize that the part had been replaced. It still states that the transfer belt needs to be replaced. We have taken it back to Office Max and they could not help us, we have talked to numerous people at Samsung customer service and they were not helpful.

    Any suggestions on what needs to be done?

There is a safety lock on the scanner that may be in the locked position. Turn the unit off and locate the green lock lever/switch under the scanner where the paper comes out. It will be labeled with a icon (picture) of a lock (unlocked and locked). Move it to the unlocked and locked position multiple times, ending up in the unlocked position. It may be stuck so moving it back and forth may release it. Turn it back on and try it.

Transfer belt error samsung CLX-2160 help


The first thing to try is to turn the printer off, unplug it from the wall, then plug it back in and turn it on. If the error message goes away, you can resume normal operation. If the error message still appears, you'll have to call your service technician.

Re Samsung CLX-3160FN & Transfer Belt Error


Take out the Imaging unit ,transfer belt and fix it properly.
Also take care that you will keep the printer on even surface.

IF nothing is solving the problem then you need to replace the transfer belt as a final solution.

Transfer belt error


Rather than turn printer off, unplug from power source, wait a few minutes and plug back in. It's worked twice for me so far...

CLX - 3160FN


Look under the flatbed (do not take anything apart) just look where the paper comes out when you print...you will see a green switch on the left, push or pull it, this is the scanner lock...I am guessing it is for transportation purposes...I had the same problem and this was the fix...Good luck

Transfer belt error, this is cause by the OPC drum which connects the belt. Make sure the drum sit well with the belt else replaced the drum.
