I've come across a few of these. Some are part failures, but they're fairly obvious. (Things don't spin.)

There is one common issue I've seen which is caused by Samsungs lack of attention to detail. The mount that holds a motor in place was not sized correctly. This allows it to shake all over the place tripping the sensor.

I made a video tutorial on how to diagnose it and fix it. It's a "dirty hack" that will cost you at most $5 for a stick of JBWeld.

Basically you fill the motor mount with jb weld and let it harden.

Non-working printer; no paper pickup


The solution shown for the Samsung CLX-3160FN All-In-One works also for the Samsung CLX-2160N.
The associated picture and methodology of "pre-stretching" the solenoid spring is virtually identical for both printers.
Worked for me on the CLX-2160N

DEVE Home Sensor Error


Dev. Home error can be fixed by stretching out a solenoid spring on the power cord side of the printer. The solenoid acts as a clutch to stop the spinning developer actuator at the right spot.

The problem is that the spring gets weak over time / the cogs round out over time and the solenoid finger is overcome by the spinning cogs, and resulting in selecting the wrong developer.

Open up the right side (power cord side) of the printer (take off top cover, then take off side cover). Then, find a solenoid (little metal square) that touches the white plastic vertical spur gear. Take the spring off the solenoid. Now, put the spring back on - only this time you will attach one anchor point to the middle of the spring as to pre-stretch the spring for more tension.

Deve Home sensor Error as occur cannot get printer to work


The web does not offer alot on this error. However the users manual indicates it is a fuser issue. Try a new maintenance kit. That should include the fuser and all rollers.
