Question about Samsung CLX-3175FN Color Laser All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

Paper Jam 1

I have a CLX-3175FN that continually exhibits a "Paper Jam 1" error. I have cleaned the paper path as best I can, without removing any screws or other parts. Opening the front cover successfully ejects a 3/4 printed page, but then the printer tries to reprint the failed job and results in another "Paper Jam 1". The service manual is useless. Any ideas on how to address the issue?

    I have read that this is due to a faulty exit sensor. I am working to gather further information on what exactly that is and whether it is a user servicable part.

I have a paper jam with a samsung CLX 3175FN. Can't get the stuck paper out! Turning on and off didn't work.

If the paper is jammed inside the machine follow these steps:
1. Open the front cover and pull the toner cartridge out, lightly pushing it down.
2. Remove the jammed paper by gently pulling it straight out.
3. After removing the jammed paper, make sure there is no additional paper in the paper path.
4. Insert the toner cartridge and close the front cover.

If the paper is jammed in exit are follow these steps:
1. Open and close the front cover. The jammed paper is automatically ejected from the machine.
2. Gently pull the paper out of the output tray.
- If you do not see the jammed paper or if there is any resistance when you pull, stop and go to the next step.
3. Open the rear cover.
4. Carefully remove the paper by pulling in the direction.
- If the paper tears, make sure that all of the paper fragments are removed from the printer.
5. Close the rear cover. Printing automatically resumes.

Jam is in the back door area..paper tore off there anyway to take out top section inside the back door to clear?

There is, but best done in a shop. You remove the back cover, 4 screws, and the fuser is held in by another 4 screws. The fuser has to be aligned to gears on the right, and a spring loaded connector on the top left to be removed. You also have to remove the right cover and unplug the 2 cables to the fuser to get enough room to clear the jam.

I have a paperjam on my colour laser printer CLX 3170 and I dont know how to get to the paperjam inside the machine

Step 1
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
Step 2
Turn off the printer.
Step 3
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Step 4
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
Step 5
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
Step 6
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
Step 7
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though.
Step 8
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
Step 9
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Inspect the paper path once again.

Constant Paper jams on CLX-3175FN

The fact that there appears to be no actual jam tells me that it is not picking up paper out of the tray. Try some alcohol on the pickup rollers, rubbing well. If that helps, replace these rollers.

My printer is 5 weeks old. My Samsung CLX 3175FN color laser printer has a paper jam. I have removed as much of the paper as possible, but it is still jammed ( where I cannot get at it ) in the upper rear...

Have you turned the printer off then tiurn it back on. If you have a paper jam, after you remove the paper, you must restart it for it to clear.
Otherwise, if there is paper still in the printer, turn off the printer remove all 4 toner cartridges and the waste cartridge. Once you do that you may be able to see the paper. You may be able to take one more thing out to where you can see the paper better, I am not sure.

Constant Paper Jam

One of the paper path sensors is damaged, or stuck. Take it to an Authorized Service Center, for two of the 4 paper sensors cannot be reached without disarming the unit.

Be blessed.
