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

My scanner locked clx -3160fn


There is a green tab located in the paper output section of the printer. If you side your hand below the keypad on the left side you will feel the tab sticking down. Pull the tab towards the front of the printer to unlock the scanner. Then press the Stop/Clear button to clear the scanner lock message. Hope this helps you.

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.

Many scanners contain a scanning head lock to keep the scanning head from moving during shipping. This may still be still be in the lock position. All scanners are different but check the documentation on how to remove the head lock.

Samsung CLX-3160FN prints and copies fine but can't scan


This may be obvious, but there's a "scanner lock" on this machine. It ships locked, and you need to unlock it when you receive it. Look up under where the paper comes out when you print, and on the left there's a little green switch. Make sure it's pulled towards you (you can see it also through the glass on the scanner bed).
