This 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.

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.

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.

    This looks great and useful but I don't know how to take off the top cover. Have undone all the screws I can find, but the top cover is still in place.

In fact, it happens that the release lever of the solenoid magnet is attached to the sponge on the base because it has aged and become sticky and then the lever is not released on time and the cam makes one revolution in an unusual way, every time you turn the cam approaching the gears of the drum and only runs the development team correspondent, but when the lever is released late in the development team does not run properly and the machine runs another cycle to align the colors until finding the right sequence, failing to align the colors in the right sequence stops giving the error

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.

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


You could try replacing the Image Unit (but these are quite expensive). This error actually refers to an optical sensor located in the gearbox (RHS of machine). The sensor controls the drive to the individual dev units, hence the "dev home error" if it malfunctions.
Probably a job for an engineer.....
