Fine horizontal dashes in black have begun appearing all over the pages whether I print in b&w or color. This gets worse with each page in a long document. Samsung CLX-3160.


Your problem is the black toner cartridge pickup drum has become scratched and is depositing "extra" black toner onto the paper prior to the fuser roller. you need to replace the drum and all should be ok then

My Samsung 3160 does not print uniformly across the page. It prints good, except for about 1" going down the left side is very light or faded looking.


try to remove toner cartridge and shake, plug in and make a self test print. if not work, you need to change new toner cartridge to make sure that the problem is not with printer itself.

Deve home sensor error on samsung clx-3160


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.

Below steps are for the CLP-300 which has the same Imager/Developer. It's just a bit more involved taking off the top in the CLX-3160.

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.

I have a samsung clx-3160 fn printer, approx 1.5 yrs old. Has worked well, however now the right side of each page is slightly faded compared to the left side. I have cleaned out what I can and replaced...


I'm not sure if it is a similar problem but I have a CLX-3170FN and it has started to run a strange line down the page, and part of the page was smudged. I cleaned it all out and looked at the drum etc and it was all fine. Then I spotted there is a plastic belt that must run like a conveyor belt behind the drum and there is a split running along it - Found out it is called the transfer belt. It was difficult to see which I why I am suggesting it to you. Now I just have to find how I can replace mine. :)

Printing in black is not the same shade through out the paper


This is a very common problem with the Samsung CLP 300 and CLX 3160 printers. What happens is that the toner or developer blades become coated with toner. The developer blades meter the amount of toner that the printer uses to make the image on the paper. When the blade become blocked, the image become faint. To fix this problem, you and either replace the imaging unit for about $100 or you can clean the blades yourself. I have posted instructions how to clean them on my Tips section.
