You need to check your document print settings on your PC. Drill through the printer properties menu until you get to the colour settings. At a guess you currently have it set to "Greyscale" rather than colour or auto.

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.

Go to printer properties and check whether you have selected print in grey mode and also check whether you have selected the economic mode. Rectify the same will solve your problem.

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.

My pages are printing correctly on the edges but light in the middle on my clx 3160fn. it has a new black ink cartridge


Is it only with one colour ? I had the same problem (only with black) and before buying another unit dismantled the imaging unit to find a build up of toner on the metering plate edge, I cleaned it and now it's fine.
It takes a bit to get to... 3 fixing screws each side plus one for the belt shute and one at the top. Remove the side plates, followed by the image drum (with great care) then each colour toner roller unit (they just slide forward) until the black unit is exposed. Remove the 5 cover fixings and then you can clean the plate edge. kh
